Ramona doesn’t want to be dumping ground for solar projects

This is addressed to Ian Stewart, an SDG&E representative who was at a recent Ramona planning group meeting.

Dear Mr. Stewart,

The town of Ramona is tired of becoming a dumping ground for solar projects.

We understand you need to build these, but why in residential and ag areas? There is PLENTY of flat land that is out of the line of sight of our residents. Build them there.

Your company is not a good neighbor and there is growing anger and distrust about what you are doing to people who are affected.

Several of my friends are heartbroken by the Warnock project being built by another company. Never in a million years, when they bought the land and built their dream homes, did they expect to see metal rooflines that encompass 40-plus acres. This should never have been built.

Now you are going to do the same thing to good people who live in the Creelman Lane area. What kind of PR is this? Did you hear them when they spoke at the recent Ramona Community Planning Group meeting — that their home values are going down since the news of the project going in?

You need to put these elsewhere or put them on roof tops — like you do in the wealthy areas where people have influence and can stop this sort of thing.

Ah, if only there were one in the Oval Office

In the early ‘50s, a new fad swept the U.S.: footlong wood-framed sunny sayings that would bring a laugh almost every time. At its height, these things may have been in half the households in the U.S. The momentum may have been provided by a desk plaque distributed by IBM to all its branches, worldwide: THINK.

Soon after, some wag produced a duplicate of the IBM motto, only underneath, in smaller type it read: “or thwim.” Next thing we knew, such admonishments were popping up all over: “If we get to drinking Sunday afternoon and invite you over, we don’t mean it.”

But one of the best read: “Do not start vast projects with half-vast ideas.” Too bad there wasn’t one in the Oval Office.
