Supervisors Kristin Gaspar and Jim Desmond opposed the motion. The action came after a feasibility study/business plan was presented to the Board on the pros and cons of community choice energy also known as community choice aggregation. CCA programs allow cities and counties to buy and/or generate electricity for residents and businesses. A CCA would offer those in the county’s unincorporated areas an alternative to buying power from San Diego Gas and Electric. SDG&E would still provide transmission and delivery services. Currently, the City of Solana Beach is the only operating CCA in the county. The City of San Diego is working to form a Regional Joint Powers Authority (JPA) with the cities of Encinitas, Chula Vista and La Mesa. Other local cities have completed feasibility studies or plan to start one. The County’s feasibility report cited estimated start-up and operation costs, a comparison of projected CCA and SDG&E rates, potential environmental benefits and options on how to govern the program. The study found a CCA option that would provide 90% renewable energy by 2030 would save the average residential customer about $2 a month. Several governance options were considered, including the County operating on its own, forming a Joint Powers Authority with other local cities or joining the City of San Diego’s Regional JPA. All three options would allow for launching the CCA in 2021. The Board initially requested staff look to CCA options last February and held a workshop in April to hear what utility experts, consumer groups and representatives from city and counties that offer the program had to say about it. Residents had a chance to offer their input on the idea at five public forums around the county. Tuesday’s action directed staff to negotiate a JPA with potential city partners including Carlsbad. Staff was asked to return to the Board with a CCA ordinance and JPA agreement on Oct. 15. Need A Job? Census Bureau Now Recruiting For 2020 Census SEP 12, 2019 – The U.S. Census Bureau is now recruiting hundreds of temporary Census Takers in San Diego, Calif. , in advance of its Nonresponse Followup Operation for the 2020 Census. The pay rate is $20.50 per hour. Apply online at 2020census. gov/jobs. The primary purpose of the Nonresponse Followup Operation is to count people in person at housing units who have not self-responded to the decennial census questionnaire. Census Takers visit and enumerate those households. This operation requires more field workers than any other operation for the national population count which occurs every 10 years. Nonresponse Followup is an integral part of the 2020 Census program that ensures a complete and accurate count. The decennial count influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year.

Jordan Gascon IRWF October Meeting In Julian County’s Plans continued from page 1 community organizations and businesses so they can respond more rapidly after a disaster. Community stakeholders include The American Red Cross, Economic Development Councils, Chambers of Commerce, SANDAG, hospitals and healthcare centers, and Access and Functional Needs advocacy networks. The Recovery Plan is important because even after a Presidentially declared disaster, assistance received from state and federal agencies cannot fully fund the recovery of a community, city or county. The plan lists options that can help augment recovery. As a follow-up to the wildfire resilience program, Chairwoman Jacob requested that staff prepare a report on the County’s community evacuation capabilities and community fire protection plans to present to the Board in 60 days. Steps To Better Sleep For Peak Sports Performance (Family Features) For fans and athletes alike, fall means gearing up for a new season of sports activities. While plenty of attention goes into developing skills and talent, other important components that affect an athlete's performance can be overlooked. Especially considering the demands of an athlete's training and game schedule, getting adequate sleep is often an afterthought. However, a lack of sleep can significantly affect athletes' performance both on and off the field. Sleep quality, efficiency and duration all may decrease just before competition, limiting opportunities for athletes to get the optimal quality and quantity of sleep their bodies need due to intense practice and game schedules, according to research published in "Sports Medicine." The same research found sleep can affect several aspects of an athlete's performance. Skills that require endurance tend to be more affected by sleep deprivation than short-term, high-power activities. Running speed and free throw accuracy improve with more sleep, for example. There is also evidence that getting inadequate sleep increases the risk of injury as sleep deprivation can cause low energy and problems with focus during the game. It may also negatively affect split-second decision-making. Less sleep also means fewer opportunities for natural secretion of the growth hormones that occur in deep sleep and aide restoration, physical performance and a healthy metabolism. Athletes can maximize their performance, recovery and overall health with these tips from Mattress Firm's sleep health expert, Dr. Sujay Kansagra: • Ensure you are getting between 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Athletes may need additional sleep due to strenuous daytime activity. • Keep your wake time and bedtime similar, regardless of your training schedule. Don't wake up early to practice one day and sleep in the next. Try to keep it consistent. • If you have trouble falling asleep, avoid workouts late in the evening just before bed. • For competitive sports teams that travel across time zones, it's important to try to adjust your circadian rhythm based on the time you will be playing in the new time zone. The goal is to time the game to when circadian rhythm and alertness are at their peaks, in the late morning and late afternoon or evening. • As the body works to repair itself during sleep, creating muscle tissue and releasing important hormones, sleeping on the proper mattress can provide support that aids in reducing aches and pains. If you need help selecting the right mattress, the experts at a retailer like Mattress Firm have a variety of sizes, options and accessories available that won't break the bank.
