 A new NASA study of ocean 
temperature measurements 
shows that in recent years,
extra heat from greenhousegases has been trapped in thewaters of the Pacific and Indian

more heat than previouslyrecognized. They also found themovement of warm water has

Officials Warn of Snakes

 City officials remind thepublic that summer months 
can be prime time to encountersnakes, including California 
rattlesnakes, while recreatingoutdoors in parks or open spacesand while on hiking trails.

 Remember, snakes generallyseek shelter from the sun byhiding under rocks, bushes orin caves and animal burrows 
during the day. When it’s coolerat night, they can become moreactive as they hunt for prey.

 The City offers the followingsafety tips to help avoid snakebites:

 • Always be aware of yoursurroundings.
• Walk in areas where the 
ground is clear so you can see afew steps ahead.
• Be aware of where you sit,
before you sit, especially inshady areas.
• Wear protective clothing,
such as long pants, long-sleevedshirts and hiking boots.
• Wear gloves and long-sleevedshirts when moving brush orrocks. 
• Never reach into cracks in 
rocks, animal burrows or under 
• Avoid nighttime hikes &
sleeping outdoors on the groundwhen snakes are most active. 
• Do not tease, handle or 
attempt to kill a rattlesnake.
• If you encounter a snake,
move out of the way. Do not 
panic or blindly run away 
without looking carefully where 
you are going.

community education 
outreach, children’s gardening 
program, and Common

County Department of Parks 
and Recreation, the Garden 
was formed in 1973 by a group

neighbors. The informal group

land in lower Loma Alta Park 
that is now the equestrian ring 
to cultivate local, healthful 
fruits and vegetables. 

a misconception that all 
rattlesnakes make noise before 
striking. The majority of 
rattlesnakes are silent, but also 
generally will not attack unlessprovoked.

 The most important first-aidtip if bitten by any snake isto call 9-1-1 immediately orget to the nearest hospital oremergency room right away. Itis best to not use other first-aid 
methods because they are oftenuseless and may cause you moreharm.

 If you are bitten by a snake,
follow these safety precautions:

• Remain calm. 
• Put a safe distance between 
you and the snake.
• Call 9-1-1 for help; speakclearly and give accurate 
landmark information about 
your location for first respondersto find. 
• Immediately remove rings,
watches and bracelets from all 
limbs due to the potential forswelling once bit.
• If possible, get to the nearesthospital or emergency roomright away.

 “The footprint you have here 
is pretty much the same as you 
would have for New Year’s Day 
at the Rose Bowl.” He said. 
“We’re really not talking up 
any more parking than would 
be displaced on a normal New 
Year’s Day event.”

 Neighbors around Rose Bowl, 
last year, lost a lawsuit filed 
alleging the city’s environmental 
impact study, centered on 
hosting an NFL team, was not 
accurately taking into account 
the impact, such as traffic, on 
the area for the added events.

teams possibly looking to 
relocate include San Diego 
Chargers, the Oakland Raiders
