"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." - Edith Lovejoy Pier

Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year, nature doesn't recognize it, and the world still goes spinning merrily along.

Tapping into the problem

Dear Editor: In the last five years my family has burned up three washing machines, two dishwashers and two hot water heaters. Why? We live in what we call the "no water zone." Our neighbor has burned up two hot water heaters in less than a year.

Our water provider continues to raise our monthly water bills but does nothing about the water pressure or quality. We never know from day to day, or even hour to hour, if we will have water. It takes 45 minutes to an hour just to fill up the tub of the washing machine ...
