Editorial [Newspaper Article] — Eagle Rock Advertiser — 23 January 1933
Editorial A NEEDED IMPROVEMENT Emphasis was glvrti by the storm of Thursday evening to the need of more adequate flood water drainage facilities in the central part of Eagle Rock. Just what can be done about the matter is problematic, but property owners and owners and managers of stores promise to make an energetic effort to get some measure of relief. Relief obviously needed, for the "funnel" ' at the intersection of Colorado and Eagle Rock Blvd);. backs the water up in time of heavy rainfall, until sidewalks are impassable and stores only can be saved from being flooded by the use of water gates in the entrances, a method which is not practicable for markets, and which is unsatisfactory at best.

The gutters fill, and cars, parked at the surbs dam the water and send it over the sidewalks, and in some cases into the store...
A DIFFICULT TASK [Newspaper Article] — Eagle Rock Advertiser — 23 January 1933
A DIFFICULT TASK Up to a comparatively few years ago, say 20 or so, the congress of the United States, both the house of representatives and the senate, and the individual members, possessed the respect of the American people. They were subject to criticism, of course, but the country had confidence that it had sent its high-' est type of citizens into the two branches of congress, respected the members, and believed that real effort could be expected to get the best possible laws within reasonable time. How times have changed. Many of those chosen to represent the people in congress have been possessed of so few of the qualifications of statesmanship, their acts have been so senseless, their interest in and vision of the needs of the country have been so small, that the country and people in all walks of life have about completely lost respect for the two branches of congress. Of course, we, the people, are to blame, for during the last 20 or 30 years we have persisted in sending t...

the. FAftMCfiS ~ comm Sec Agricultural Legislative &gt; Committee of CallPornia The improvement district racket, which has cost California property owners millions of dollars in exorbitant assessments, resulting in wholesale confiscation of farms and homes in many areas, is slated for a thorough airing at the current session of the state legislature. At least a dozen bills, aimed at repeal of the Mattoon Act and similar street and highway and improvement district acts, have found their way into the legislative hopper, with growing indications that the lawmakers will take drastic action to safeguard against future confiscation of property through spurious promotional schemes. While the present drive against the improvement district evil has some of the aspects of locking the door after the horse is stolen, there is undoubtedly a chance of relieving the plight of many farmers and city residents already enmeshed by the system. And there is also a commendable disposition to prot...
