My name is Bob Daddi, I am a director of Ojai FLOW. We are in the process of removing our For-Profit-Water company. They have sued to stop an election for a Bon that will allow to us purchase and remove them, Please go to the OjaiFLOW web and contact us if we can give you any help. The only answer is to have elected CPUC members, not appointed. Call your Senator and Assembly person and ask for support, they should have a vested intrest.
I heard about generators-electric in Cloverdale through a friend. do they really charge up as fast as they say they do? I think its amazing! What else should I expect before buying one?
how can i get the email of the author, since i would like to contact her. I am at gary at couple and wise (all one word).com
I absolutely believe that tipping your wine host/hostess is appropriate. Having worked in the industry, I know that the hardworking folks with smiles, knowledge and a bottle in their hand are doing everything to get you as excited about the wines as they are - for $12 an hour. One would be foolish to not recognize that an average Denny's employee is likely bringing in more income (not to denigrate Denny's employees by any means). If a wine steward gets you feeling the rush of history, fruit and the passion going into a wine that demands you have some for yourself, reciprocation is in order. No question.
Blessed are the whistle-blowers, for they disclose and denounce injustice and evil in the world.
More than two thousand years ago, a whistle-blower Jewish rabbi named Yeshua from Nazareth publicly denounced the religious theocracy of his time. Seriously threatened and undermined, the then religious establishment persecuted and had the Jewish whistle-blower killed. The world did that then, it still does now.
Bring them (B. Manning and E. Snowden) home.

You numskull, then what does that make China?
Now that Congress has been schooled in what's really going on at the NSA, maybe they'll get off their asses and do something. That is of course the congressional body is tech savvy enough to ask the right questions. From early reports, the crash course of Domestic Spying for Dummies conducted behind closed doors was enough to piss a few folks off. Thats a start!
PS. I never got my holiday pie.
Where I work in WA. WDS starts at 11 an hour and we work about 2 6 hr days a week. More before a holiday. The only benefit we get is 401K after a year. However we make so little we can't afford to put anything in it. Supposed to get a .25 raise after a year, but they gave me the shaft. been there almost 2 years and got only .15 cent raise. They get paid $155 plus supplies for a demo. They could at least give us a free membership like they give the Costco employees. Separate but equal. We ain't equal.
To Reply to Ethan:
These are great questions, which are easily answered:
"Whats is the source of renewable energy?"
It depends on what they can negotiate, but will be at least 33% renewable, and could be as high as 100% renewable if you want pay whatever that 100% renewable rate will be. RECs will be used to supplement this -- renewable energy credits from clean energy projects around the country. These are the same credits PG&E likes to brag about using, except SCP will be using them as a bridge to local renewable energy.
"How are we promoting "Go Local" by purchasing energy from out of state multi-national companies… How are we decreasing our carbon footprint through supporting companies with some of highest reported negative environmental externalities?"
The BEST part about Sonoma Clean Power is that the ratepayer money over the years will be invested to both improve local energy efficiency and create local energy projects, which is way above and beyond what any other CCA is going on around the country. PG&E definitely doesn't do this.
These local energy projects will create:
Local energy security
A buffer between us and rising and falling prices of the energy market, which is HUGE.
Do a web search for FAQ and Sonoma Clean Power to find their pdf that addresses a lot of this stuff.
Who will be playing drums?
The questions being asked by the people remains the same.....
Whats is the source of renewable energy?
Only 1 out of the four companies generates renewable energy - NRG
How are we promoting "Go Local" by purchasing energy from out of state multi-national companies?
How are we decreasing our carbon footprint through supporting companies with some of highest reported negative enviromental externalities? How are we going to internalize these negative externalities?
Much praise to the author of this article, and much more to Marc Armstrong and Ellen Brown of the public banking Institute for starting this long overdue movement. Since I believe Dante was right that the worst places in hell are reserved for those with knowledge who do not act, if everyone reading this will offer to do a houseparty or otherwise donate themselves some volunteer time or a $100 (and those at the house party in turn team up with others to generate more house parties two or three weeks later, so each round of parties keeps doubling or tripling, we'll have enough money and volunteer power to make this happen. It could be great fun too if everyone brings a poem or copies of a song or a tasteful joke, etc. I'm volunteering today, and Hope you too will be writing marc@publicBankingInstitute.org.
This is, actually, not the first time "The Sound of Music" has been performed at the Mountain Play. I saw it there in 1985! Maybe you need a new fact checker.
Recently read your previous article "Climb Ev'ry Mountain (May 15-21). In the article you state "director Jay Manly stages "The Sound of Music" for it's very first run on the mountain". I feel I must tell you that "The Sound of Music" was done on the mountain in 1985. I was there and it was wonderful!
My husband and I were going to make an offer on a house and move to Dillon Beach, until reading this article today. I am horrified by the greed of this company and the way these people are forced to live. I am all for water conservation, but upon exploring CalWater.com, I am surprised to say that usage isn't the issue. These people are reusing bath water and not cleaning their medical instruments, but the amount of water you use contributes very little to the actual amount billed. The size of your meter, the service charges, taxes and additional fees are where they are really gouging customers. These residents should be better informed about their bill breakdown. I am not in the area, but I would like to know how to get involved in changing how Cal Water treats these customers and expose the lack of oversight.
Come to Lucerne's Rally at Harbor Park, June 22nd Bring a picket sign and tell Cal-Water to get the hell out of our town!
really? is the an objective piece of journalism that really discusses the issues? Sad to see such biased reporting. How many schools in the county are surrounded by vineyards? What is the positive economic impact in the community? I rather have productive businesses paying local taxes (going towards EDUCATION), than abandoned properties full of drug addicts (we all know too well that our town unfortunately has many). People of Sebastopol, why are you always so against any positive change?
Shame on You for that ridiculous apology, and honestly What a bunch of Garbage! Who Cares why they were called to the house, or by whom! It's plain as day there were NO Exigent Circumstances requiring Police to breakdown the door. They Issued UNLAWFUL commands to these homeowners, and BURGLARIZED their home and ASSAULTED them when the Owners refused to comply with the commands. Police have no authority to come onto private property without a Warrant or Emergency/Exigent Circumstances. Neither of those conditions were met. These criminals with Badges should be in Federal Prison for civil rights violations.... since we know the Sheriff is too much of a Coward to charge them as they should be!
