Happy Humpday! And, it's a beautiful one. 

AGUA! California’s biggest reservoirs recover, putting water limits in question [SacBee] - “With California’s two largest reservoirs hitting historically average levels following a weekend of heavy storms, the state’s chief water regulator is cautiously optimistic that the drought may finally be relaxing its grip.

If the wet weather continues, she said, the urban conservation mandates that turned lawns brown and have Californians taking shorter showers may be eased in the weeks ahead.”

FOUL! Cursing coastal commissioner offers an accusatory apology [Steve Lopez @ LAT] - “The Venetians were as perplexed as anyone in the room last week when a member of the California Coastal Commission suddenly began speaking in Spanish at a public hearing in Santa Monica.”

ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL: Jerry Brown: If Trump wins, California might need a wall of its own [David Siders @ SacBee] - “Gov. Jerry Brown, mocking Donald Trump for his plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, suggested Monday that if the Republican frontrunner wins the election, California might have to take protective measures of its own.

“If Trump were ever elected, we’d have to build a wall around California to defend ourselves from the rest of this country,” Brown told labor organizers at a dinner in Sacramento. “By the way that is a joke. We don’t like walls, we like bridges.”

CA07 (S/E. Sacto): Ami Bera’s Democratic critics say Elk Grove congressman disappoints [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - “The Democratic activists who helped stonewall early party endorsements for Bera insist the unrest reaches beyond organized labor. They warn that if Bera doesn’t heed their calls and become more progressive and take a more active role in their affairs, he’ll lose in November.”

KEEP IT OPEN: California bill bars contracts with companies boycotting Israel [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - “Inserting themselves into a bitter dispute about Israeli policy, a group of California lawmakers wants to bar the state from contracting with companies that refuse to do business with Israel.”

#CAKEDAY: Light those candles for Assemblymember Scott Wilk!
