"Last year, we being your source of some of the Zumba Dancing Debuts hosted a Halloween beer pairing more unique and harder to find . event featuring Stone Brewing At Town Hall and our first year featured by Nancy Kramer Menghini Winery, where Mike and Toni Menghini were dressed Town Hall is serving many purposes these days. The Melodrama chairs were stacked to the side Tuesday morning for the new Zumba Dance Fitness classes which opened to a very successful first week. Energetic Instructor, Terry Ross, who turned 60 this year, had everyone dancing to those great Latin beats that just compel you to move your body.., and smile while you're doing it! Participants ranged in age from mid-20s to mid-70s with about 55 as an average. .Th!s is a symbiotic relationship b.ecause Terry .moves the chairs aside for Zumba which makes sweeping my job of sweeping the floor much easier after the Melodrama weekend performances end, to get all those Floozie feathers cleaned up and then Terry moves them back again for Friday night's Melodrama performance which runs for just one more week. Terry and I are the co-directors of the Floozies, who are doing evening performances only this year. It's nice to work together to keep the wooden floors clean! Zumba is the new fitness craze sweeping the nation and we are so lucky to have the classes right here in Julian! Unfortunately, the crafters have the Town Hall reserved for all of November so the Zumba classes are looking for somewhere to move for a month, with nice hardwood floors, before moving back to Town Hall to share the space with A Christmas Carol in another symbiotic relationship. Since both of us will be participating in that play also, we'll keep the floors clean! If you know of any space that can be utilized for November for the Zumba classes or you just want to find out more about these fun dance/exercise classes being held on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at 9AM, please contact Terry Ross at 760 260-8161.

Solar Power Is Beginning To Go Mainstream by Jonathan Fahey (AP and OfficialWire) Solar energy may finally get its day in the sun. The high.costs that for .years made it a mainstream s(urce of energy are plummeting _.,al estat e companies are .racing to install solar panels on office buildings. Utilities are erecting large solar panel "farms" near big cities and in desolate deserts. And creative financing plans are making solar more realistic than ever for homes. Solar power installations doubled in the United States last year and are expected to double again this year. More solar energy is being planned than any other power source, including nuclear, coal, natural gas and wind. "We are at the beginning of a turning point," says Andrew Beebe, who runs global sales for Suntech Power, a manufacturer of solar panels. Solar's share of the power business remains tiny. But its promise is great. The sun splashes more clean energy on the planet in one hour than humans use in a year, and daytime is when power is needed most. And solar panels can be. installed near where people use power, reducing or eliminating the costs of moving power through a grid. Solar power has been held back by costs. It's still about three times more expensive than electricity produced by natural gas, according to estimates by the Energy Information Administration. But the financial barriers are falling fast. Solar panel prices have plunged by two-thirds since 2008, making it easier for installers to market solar's financial benefits, and not simply its environmental ones. Homeowners who want to go solar can do so for free and pay the same or less for their power. Last month two of the nation's biggest utilities, Exelon and NextEra Energy, each acquired a large California solar power farm in the early stages of development. Another utility, San Diego based NRG Energy, has announced a plan with Bank of America and the real estate firm Prologis to spend $1.4 billion to install solar systems on 750 commercial rooftops. Nationwide, solar power installations grew by 102 percent from 2009 to 2010, by far the fastest rate in the past five years. "Every manufacturer globally is looking around for the next major growth market, and the U.S. is the first one everyone points to," says Shayle Kann, managing director for solar research at GTM Research. Making solar affordable still requires large tax breaks and other subsidies from federal and state governments. The main federal subsidy pays for 30 percent of the cost of a residential system. When state and other subsidies are added, as much as 75 percent of the cost can be covered. But prices of solar panels, the squares of crystalline silicon or thin layers of metal films that turn the sun's rays into electricity, are falling so fast that its advocates now credibly claim that solar will be able to compete with fossil fuels even when the federal solar subsidy shrinks by two-thirds in 2016. "Over the past 10 years the industry has made the case that we needed to increase scale so we could reduce prices," says Arno Harris, CEO of solar developer Recurrent Energy, a subsidiary of Sharp Corp. "We're seeing it happen."

And they've made solar power systems so affordable they can appeal to homeowners who want to save on their electric bill, not just reduce their environmental impact, , Tim Johnson, a high school math teacher in Philadelphia, had wanted to put solar panels on his roof for years. Like many people concerned about the environment, the thought of powering his home without burning fossil fuels had a strong appeal. But with two kids in college, he couldn't justify spending $15,000, after subsidies, to do it. But since March, he has generated 50 percent to 75 percent of his electricity with a set of solar panels on his roof, saving 20 percent on his electricity bills. His upfront cost for the system: $0. Instead of buying and installing the panels himself, he signed up with SunRun, one of a handful of companies that build, own and maintain solar systems on homes. These companies earn money by charging customers for the power the panels produce. continued on page 12 L J
