They might well apply to our beautiful drought stricken island surrounded by a glistening salt irrigation nozzles to drip valves to eliminate waste of landscap- ing water. These water-saving changes will still meet the needs of these new project facilities and continue to offer the lovely land- scaping that our visitors and com- munity enjoy. "By responding responsibly to the seriousness of the drought, the company feels that the various water saving steps being taken is not only good for and the golf course uses an older, non-potable, briny, off-line water well on the site itself (many, many miles away from Thompson's Reservoir) to keep the course in good condition. The Descanso Beach Club will also be using "smart" water con- servation devices and drip irriga- tion for the majority of its land- scape which is expected to result in at least 30% water use reduction. from Manny Hernandez.

Born in Fullerton, CA, Louise lived most of her adult life in Colorado, but on a visit to the island in the mid-1980's quickly decided to take up residence in Avalon. She worked first at the Bank of Catalina until she joined the City of Avalon staff from September, 1988 through May of 1999. She then moved to Mena, Arkansas to live with her parents and sister, where she developed a small business of hand-painted fabrics, clothes, and shoes on e-Bay. She also very much enjoyed collecting Chinese furniture and fine pottery, along with pursuing an avid interest in unusual vintage clothing. She left Arkansas in 2006 and moved to Pittsburgh, PA in order to enjoy the quickly growing family of her eldest son, Colin McDonald, his wife Susan, and her three young grandchildren Maddie, Michael, and EUie. This relocation also brought her closer to her younger son, Tyson Schrader, his wife Amber, and twin granddaughters Avery & Emery of Silt, Colorado. Her affection, helpfulness and willing ear will be greatly missed by family and friends alike. In addition to her sons and their families, Louise is survived by her mother, Donna Stichtman and sister Lisa Ridgley, both of Mena, Arkansas, sister Pat Fertig of Avalon, and nieces Harmony Ridgley- Wright of London, UK, Melissa Hoers of Avalon and Jordan Harvey of Indio, CA.
