Wanted In Toms River: Have You Seen This Man?

"The Watering Dilemma"

A lawn care company with a brown lawn? The outdoor water ban was creating a dilemma.

As the Advice Man for Lawn Doctor, I was faced with a dilemma during the recent water ban.

If I continued to water the lawn at Lawn Doctor’s Corporate headquarters I would be going against the rules. But if I didn’t my lawn -- and possibly my reputation -- could be damaged.

I know I made the right decision by not watering, in light of the fact I could have put the supply of potable water in jeopardy.

It seems like from the recent Patch poll called "Would You Turn In Your Neighbor?" it was tough for other homeowners as well.

I was surprised to see how many people would call the town on their neighbor if they saw they were watering during the ban.

With the heat continuing to rise I am going to make sure I practice what I preach when it comes to watering my own lawn as well, irrigating a section at a time and raising the mowing height.

I am also going to make sure that I am on the best of terms with all of my neighbors.

DJGigs, You are correct. We just have to follow the money (and Gore got very wealthy). The earth is billions years old, and we have for the past 200 yrs. of industry have ruined it? I do not think so. Christine Whitman signed up New Jersey in year 2000, to Sustainable NJ (AGENDA 21) with choking rules by the EPA and unelected people making rules and regulations for the rest of us, and there land grabs of Open Spaces. http://www.sustainablejersey.com/about.php EPA.. http://www.state.nj.us/dep/opsc/

The problem with what people think, is, "That they have a perception or mindset that the world/life as they view it has only existed in their lifetime, thus fogging out the pre-existence of everything that has occurred in the passed". Like The Late George Carlin stated in his unique comedic delivery, "This earth is gonna shake us off like a dog with a bad case of fleas"! Volcanic eruptions, underwater magma/lava flows, sunspots, solar flares, surface reflectivity, temperatures in the higher levels of our atmosphere, and radiational cooling all are some major factors in how this earth reacts which cause varying weather cycles. We as humans can not be shackled due to a theory that is driven and perpetuated by people elected into government along with alarmists that freak out and scare people who are ignorant ( not their fault ) to egg head science speak.

Oh Bob, how right you are. Building too close, too densely has numerous consequences.

Al Gore made lots of money with the so during the height of the "Global Warming" era. Humans do not have enough years of statistical data to determine whether they are theories or facts. Bottom line.
