I was in charge of an event and the PayPal account had $20,000 from ticket sales. Take a slice of the pie? Sure, it's tempting, but someone has to be mental to really do such a thing. It's so wrong - even a child knows that.

The Cabrillo Unified School District just passed Measure S for $81 Million Dollars , including money slated for Solar Panels.

I want Solar panels on my house too, but now that they voted to Extract close to $10,000 over time via property tax assessments, I will just get to pay for the School to have them, and not on My house.

They made it sound so cheap..$45.00 per 100,000 dollars of valuation. But the BOND will be sold for a time covering 25 OR 40 years and they will be based on ever-increasing ad valorem at the time of funding which could actually take place in the 24th year!
SHEEZE!
