CPUC shouldn’t excuse SDG&E

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), appointed by our elected officials, is posed to allow SDG&E to stick their hands into our pockets and excuse SDG&E gross mismanagement in precluding wildfires and carrying enough fire insurance.

Unfortunately that is the nature of our modern government — to avoid responsibility and “pass the buck” to the taxpayers and force us to pick up the tab for the poor decisions of managers/corporate leaders and government officials who get paid very big bucks to manage things properly.

If this nonsense succeeds, it is clearly time to clean house of all incumbents next election to hopefully return to sane and responsive government, one that works for the common good of all citizens and not for special interests/campaign money.

Thanks to all concert benefactors

We want you to know we appreciate all the help the Sentinel has been during our Ramona Concert Association’s 2011-12 season. People are definitely reading the paper.

The Highland Way Celtic Concert in March was really wonderful. Five people came dressed in their kilts and tartans and were introduced on stage before the performance started. Then a big surprise — during one of the numbers Ramona concert member Marvin Foster, dressed in his tartan kilt, got up out of his seat and did an Irish jig with the music. The band had planned this for our entertainment.

Then at this final concert, our High School Symphonic Band was really excellent. Their performances are beyond belief. Most of them have only been playing their instrument for four or five years. The Middle School CORE Ensemble was also top-notch with perfect musicianship. This was their third time to play for the concerts.

The third band at this performance was the Ramona Community Brass Band, also entertaining with outstanding march and patriotic selections.

This ended our 27th season of bringing top quality musicians from around the globe, to perform for the Ramona audience.

We also would like to thank so many Ramona residents who generously support the concert association by being benefactors and patrons. Their patronage really helps keep us going.

Our benefactors are: Jeanne Ghilbert, Charles and Carol Oswalt, Guy and Kim Buchanan, Phil and Nancy Harding, Ramona Disposal, Al Slocum, and Doug and Judy Wilsman. Our patrons are the: Barticks, Brouillettes, Burney, B.Byrnes, Carvalhos, Castbergs, J. Castro, City Barber Shop, Courtney & Pollack, Fitch’s, Groves, Gurzis, Hunsbergers, W. Jones, D. Jordans, Kennel & Lehman, Kirkman, Kruses, Meloches, R. Neilsons, Ransom Bros., Rollins, Sabin, S.V. Club, Scanlans, Switzers, Voorhes, G. White, A. Gonzales.

Our 28th season is planned and will soon be announced in this paper.

Marlene Robershaw, President, Ramona Concert Association
