Message to Orindans: Buy a rake?

Watch Orindans in this video complain about leaf blower noise and lobby for a ban and a return to the age-old yard implement called a “rake.”

Hey, I’m not entirely unsympathetic although leaf blower noise probably rates pretty low on the scale of important stuff. Maybe I could get my town — Martinez — to ban the two howling hound dogs next door, who set off every other dog in the neighborhood.
