40 YEARS AGO: The Modesto Irrigation District reports a 12.5 percent drop in power use for the Christmas season. The decrease is assumed to be from merchants and residents electing to eliminate the use of outdoor Christmas lights as compliance with the national call to reduce energy use.

Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper.
