I was at the afternoon meeting of the Apple Valley Choice Energy. Although many questions received a very good explanation from Apple Valley's Public Service Manager, I thought one question did not.
The question, "How will Edison make up their losses?"
That made me wonder if Edison's rates are higher than what the Town of Apple Valley will charge, isn't the difference Edison's profit?
Won't Edison go to the Public Utilities Commission, that guarantees them a profit, to maybe increase their delivery charges? If the PUC allows Edison any increases, that would wipe out any savings Apple Valley is offering?
Maybe there is some significance to the starting date of Apple Valley Choice Energy — April Fools Day!
This most latest attack by a Federal District Court judge in the state of Hawaii should be no surprise to the Trump Administration. This is only one more example of the left's attempt to obstruct President Trump's efforts to protect us from radical Islamic terrorists.
Moreover, it should be perfectly clear to any reasonable person, regardless of political affiliation, that the Trump haters who dominate both the media and the Democratic party will never, short of resignation, support anything President Trump does for the next four years.
A letter to Rep. Cook
Honorable Rep. Paul Cook,
If Congress cannot do better than the recently released Obamacare repeal and replace....then just repeal only! Replace later.
Please pass this on to President Trump. He will lose a lot of support if a much better peplace is passed.

There are those among us (myself included) who accuse the MSM (main stream media) of spewing fake news. There are also a good number of people who say this is hogwash, doesn't happen. Is the MSN really in bed with the Democrats? The following information may help you figure this one out. It comes from the federalistpapers.org.
ABC News Executive Producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, Obama's National Security Advisor.
CBS President David Rhodes has a brother, Ben Rhodes, who was Obama's Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications.
ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Deputy Press Secretary for Obama.
ABC President Ben Sherwood's sister, Elizabeth Sherwood, was Special Advisor for Obama.
CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to Tom Nides, Hillary Clinton's former Deputy Secretary.
Isn't it interesting that every place you look in Obama's administration you find people who filled positions because of who they knew, not what they knew or how competent they were? I don't know about you, but for me, there's no mystery here.
Arrest/release of child abuser
Yesterday I read that an intoxicated transient went into a local business frequented by families and young children and touched a 3-year-old child in a sexual manner. The child's father witnessed and reported the crime to the local Sheriff Station. A deputy responded and made an arrest of the 62-year-old suspect.
What was shocking is the alleged child molester was released less than 24 hours later with a citation! What has our local criminal justice system become of in the High Desert? No wonder people do not feel safe living in the High Desert. When our local Sheriff's Department releases an accused child molester with a citation who is a transient and has no physical address, all hope is lost for effective crime fighting.
Jail booking logs show she was released less than 24 hours later with a citation.
Where’s the beef?
We attended the Town Council’s “Apple Valley Choice Energy” meeting this week and got a better understanding what the Town is offering. Contrary to most people’s impression, the promise of a 3 percent reduction in your electric bill, the proposed reduction only applies to a portion of the bill.
Your bill is divided into two major parts, specifically:
1. Delivery charges (62.49 percent)
2. Generation charges (37.51 percent)
Since your electricity will continue to be delivered by Southern California Edison, that portion of your bill (62.49 percent) does not change.
You will receive a 3 percent reduction in the generation charges, so if your electric bill is for $100 per month (the California average) your generation charges will be $37.51 and your “savings” will amount to 3 percent of $37.51, or about $1.13 per month.
If your average bill is less, say $80, your savings would be about $0.90 per month (3 percent of $30.01). If your bill is higher you would obviously receive a bit more, but it would still amount to only 3 percent of 37.51 percent of your total bill.
In my opinion, such a small savings is not worth the risk of introducing an inexperienced third party (the Town of Apple Valley) into the midst of providing such a critical utility. If their efforts into taking over the water company are any indication of their management skills, everyone who doesn’t opt out should stock up on candles.
It makes one wonder who is getting the big bucks in this takeover? It’s certainly not the average electric consumer, eh?
Sometimes I wonder if people just play dumb and write in to get their name in the paper!
Unless you've been living under a rock, you have heard of George Soros, how much money he has and his politics. Most definitely the protests have everything to do with him, it has been reported that 100 of the 544 Women’s March partners received a total of $246,637,217 from Soros between 2000 and 2014, and that's not including what he has spent in the last three years! He has also spent over a billion dollars funding Planned Parenthood abortion clinics under the guise that they are open for the sole purpose of treating women's problems. No, their sole purpose is abortions.
Yes, he does pay people $1,500 to go to protests and to show up to town hall meetings to disrupt everything. Want to know who they are? Just look for the neatly printed, professionally made signs. Watch them pouring out of the busses around the corners from the events and boom! There it is!
George Soros won't be happy until his vision of "One World Government" comes to fruition. If you two loonies who wrote in on March 8 don't know what that is, Google it! That's even more scary that Donald Trump being elected president. Soros is the person you should be afraid of because he wants to ruin the future of the United States just like he did the British pound!
