Scott Boyd and Kathryn Slater-Carter are well experienced, excellent Water and Sanitary District officials-- it will be great to see them serve another term to add to their already tremendous value to the community

There were still a many White-tailed kites (40-50 individuals), several Red Tailed Hawks(mostly immatures), a few Red Shouldered Hawks feeding on the voles during sunset on 9-25-07. As the sun set, more voles came out and ran frantically, while a pait of Barn Owls hunted the field. A good time was had by some!

Sierra Club Cool Cities Campaign: How your city can become a 'Cool City': That's one way to avoid a 'surprise' lighting decision.

I'd have to agree that sustainable housing would go a long way to increasing quality of life here on the coast side! And would suggest that municipalities adopt sustainable building ordinances. This alone could help reduce regional global warming, and would put more money in home owners' pockets: sustainable buildings tend to be cheaper to maintain: energy is generated and excess energy is sold back to the power company; gray water is reuse of water already paid for; passive solar pays for itself;…
