California is making it easier than ever to vote
October 9, 2016, Jim Miller, Sacramento Bee
Texas lawmakers in 2011 approved a law that counted handgun licenses, but not student ID cards, as acceptable forms of identification to vote.
The Wisconsin Legislature, after Republicans took control in 2010, approved a similarly strict ID requirement. North Carolina lawmakers went further, passing ID rules as well as reducing early voting hours and eliminating same-day registration.
California will never show up in the stacks of legal filings challenging those laws. In California, no law requires voters to show ID. They soon will be registered to vote automatically. Their vote will be counted even if it shows up three days after the election.

September 25, 2016, Dale Kasler, Ryan Sabalow & Phillip Reese, Sacramento Bee
Two years after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill designed to limit groundwater pumping, new wells are going in faster and deeper than ever in the San Joaquin Valley farm belt.

As cities get warmer, their trees lose some of their ability to take carbon out of the atmosphere
October 6, 2016, Deborah Netburn, LA Times
All hail the urban tree.
A recent study found that the total amount of carbon stored in urban trees in the U.S. is 643 million tons, and that city trees suck up an additional 25.6 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere each year.
But their ability to perform this critical work may soon be hampered. New research suggests that as the planet and its cities get warmer, the ability of urban trees to take carbon out of the atmosphere is diminished.

Grant Funding Available for Angling Programs Geared to Hispanic Communities
October 7, 2016, CA DFW News
Latinos are California’s largest ethnic population, with almost 15 million people of Hispanic heritage. Yet only a fraction of California’s nearly 1.8 million anglers are Hispanic, and according to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service study, Hispanic participation in fishing and angling activities has remained stagnant even as overall participation has increased nationwide. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) are looking for new ways to educate and engage Hispanic communities in the sport of fishing, and this year, grants will be made available for programs, classes and activities that support this cause.
