When the rest of the world thinks of Southern California, it thinks of beaches, of swimming pools, of?..water. Water has always played a major role in life in the Southland. And with good reason ? without a steady supply of imported water, Southern California wouldn?t exist as we know it today. Because the entire region depends heavily on this important resource, there is growing concern about how the region?s economy, quality of life and environment will fare in the face of a deepening, statewide water crisis.

An amazing year it was, with the legendary Kelly Slater winning his unprecedented eighth world title. Perhaps even more stunning was the fact that he did so with two events remaining and already having missed one due to injury. All this in a year during which he won the first two events back to back before even deciding if he was going to surf a full schedule in 2006 and go after his unprecedented eighth world title. But he did so in an uncanny fashion, cruising through the year with a new attitude and deciding anything from here on would just be icing on the cake.

HOW I READ IT Here I am, casually pursuing the latest writings of some of today's best selling authors, including Tom Clancy, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker, T. Jefferson Parker, Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Jackie Collins, John Lescroart, Julie Garwood and Johanna Lindsey, to name just a few. Thank God I'm not at a Barnes & Noble sweating at how much it's going to cost me. No, I'm in our own friendly Public...

HOW I READ IT Well, here we go again -- the anticipation, fun, fear, depression, anxiety, love, anger, joy, plus every other human emotion we've inherited since our ancestors became fully upright and walking hominids. No, I'm not talking about having a baby; it's experiencing all these emotions that make the holiday season a very special time of year and create so many lifetime memories. And the library can enhance this season's celebrations in many ways.

HOW I READ IT Now this is a great story. Four hundred eighty-six pages of suspense, mystery, terror, fear, racism, commitment, honor, hatred, sacrifice, loyalty and betrayal all experienced within a few weeks in a German POW camp during World War II. In "Hart's War" by John Katzenbach, a highly respected, decorated and dedicated Army Air Corps officer, Vic Bedford, is brutally murdered. A recently captured black Tuskegee flier, Lincoln Scott, is immediately accused of the crime because his verbal threats to the racist Bedford and other circumstantial evidence.

Don’t look now, but the world of professional surfing might be witnessing a changing of the guard — Dane Reynolds and Jordy Smith are looking as if they might finally live up to the hype that has surrounded them for the last couple of years. They ranked 10 and 11 on last year’s world tour and will now find themselves competing against one another in semifinal No. 2 when competition resumes at the Quiksilver pro at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast of Australia. Smith struck first, in Round 4, by defeating nine-time world champion Kelly Slater, who was looking like a favorite after his devastating form in earlier rounds.

How I Read it From June 1035, somewhere in North America, to August 2003, in Washington, D.C., Clive Cussler weaves a riveting adventure, including Vikings inhabiting North America long before Columbus, and Jules Verne's Captain Nemo and his submarine, Nautilus, as a historical technological event. The CIA, the FBI, the National Underwater and Marine Agency and the notorious Cerbarus oil-monopoly all come together in "Valhalla Rising," a story about corrupt oil millionaires wanting to become billionaires (sound familiar)

HOW I READ IT For those of us who believe that as one grows older, regardless of magnification, printed material gets smaller and smaller, let me introduce you to a very important part of our library, the LARGE PRINT SECTION. This section will not help you read this paper or nutritional labels at the super-market, but for many it will greatly enhance their recreational reading time. This section represents a small part of the library, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality!
