NAVIGATOR CHARTER SCHOOLS - 08/26/14 10:50 S.S.

A GILROY-BASED CHARTER SCHOOL OPERATOR WANTS TO OPEN 2 SCHOOLS IN SALINAS. THE OWNER OF NAVIGATOR SCHOOLS HOPES TO PLACE ONE SCHOOL EACH IN BOTH THE ALISAL UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE SALINAS CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT. THEY HOPE TO START WITH K-3RD GRADE SCHOOLS, AND EXPAND FROM THERE. CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT OPERATE OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, BUT ARE PUBLICLY FUNDED. ALL OF THE CHARTER SCHOOLS IN MONTEREY COUNTY ARE CURRENTLY INDEPENDENTLY RUN, SO THE NAVIGATOR SCHOOLS WOULD BE THE FIRST IN THE COUNTY THAT WOULD BE RUN BY A “CHARTER OPERATOR”. CHARTER SCHOOLS CAN BE CONTROVERSIAL BECAUSE THE TEACHERS AT CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE NOT UNIONIZED, AND BECAUSE WHEN STUDENTS MOVE FROM A DISTRICT SCHOOL TO A CHARTER SCHOOL, THE MONEY THAT PAYS FOR THEM MOVES TOO.

SOLAR FARM PROPOSED - 08/26/14 08:56 S.S.

A PROPOSAL TO BUILD ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST SOLAR FARMS IN THE PANOCHE VALLEY (SOUTH OF HOLLISTER) ONLY NEEDS ITS FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITS, AND SOME NEW INVESTORS TO BANKROLL IT. SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON HAS ALREADY AGREED TO A 20-YEAR CONTRACT TO PURCHASE ELECTRICITY CREATED THERE. THE STATE’S UTILITY COMPANIES NEED TO FIND NEW SOURCES OF ELECTRICITY BECAUSE A 3 YEAR-OLD LAW REQUIRES THEM TO PROVIDE 33 PERCENT OF THEIR ELECTRICITY FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES (SUCH AS SOLAR AND WIND POWER) BY THE YEAR 2020. THE STATE’S 3 LARGEST UTILITIES ARE CURRENTLY AT ABOUT 21 PERCENT. SEVERAL ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS SAY THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT THIS PROJECT, BECAUSE THEY SAY IT THREATENS THE RURAL CHARACTER OF THE AREA, AND WOULD HARM SEVERAL ENDANGERED SPECIES (INCLUDING THE SAN JOAQUIN KIT FOX, AND THE BLUNT-NOSED LEOPARD LIZARD).
