This last week, I was able to catch up with Billy Dutton of Riding Currents, a group dedicated to promoting renewable energy, raising awareness about plastics in the ocean and recognizing the advancement of renewable energy and its application to watercraft.

SunPower provided the power with solar panels and Trojan batteries (T-145s) were used to store that energy.

Should our schools teach students the fundamentals of education - how to read and write, and to understand math and science concepts and the importance of history? Or should they nurture the workers of the future, focusing on the knowledge and skills our kids will need to compete in the worldwide marketplace? The answer, of course, is that in a perfect world, schools would pursue both goals. But our world is far from perfect, and finding the proper balance between what we consider more highbrow academic pursuits and the practicality of future career needs is a difficult task.

Yes on Measure V Measure V doesn't change current practices. It preserves nearly 60 years of Costa Mesa city laws and policies. State conflict-of-interest and political contribution laws would still apply. Current bidding practices would continue, ensuring that the city saves money through competitive bidding. Measure V removes the city from local politics. It requires Costa Mesa to stop collecting via its payroll system public union political dues. Public unions wanting to use their dues for political purposes will have to collect these amounts themselves, as they should.
