Steve Greenberg

Cartoon caption contest winner

The cartoon caption contest asked readers to weigh in on water conservation during our record drought. Several water systems in the region have imposed mandatory measures; last week, the Sacramento City Council approved “cash for grass” rebates to homeowners who replace their lawns.

Of the more than 100 entries, the common theme was how far the water police would be willing to go to stop waste. Several worked in a reference to another kind of “grass” – marijuana.

The landslide winner, Milton Braswell of Folsom, also came up with a clever play on words – a version of the Miranda warning we all know from cop shows on TV. His entry drew 63 percent of the votes cast. Braswell will receive a signed color print of Steve Greenberg’s editorial cartoon with the winning caption.
