The sanctity of ALL life is a truth enshrined in every religious tradition the world over. This paragraph began with the word love and ends with the word truth; love compels us toward truth. Love compelled us in the sixties, and it compels us now. Is there an example of a practical application of this high idealism? Yes: what is happening on college campuses all over America: students and faculty slowly transforming their campuses into sustainable- energy operations. And amid this transformation it is often pointed out that this is the younger generation's social movement, a movement they liken to the sixties era their parents lived through, although this current movement is a much quieter one. I believe it would be far louder if conscription had been instituted for Iraq and Afghanistan, as it was for Vietnam. Added to this is something Supervisor Dianne Jacob said during one of the Sunrise Powerlink hearings in Ramona: "California is at the dawn of a revolution that could be as powerful as the Internet revolution." Supervisor Jacob, here, is talking about an energy revolution. The flower power revolution graced the sixties. An energy revolution will grace the near future. Although the two eras are distinct in certain ways, other elements remain the same: a peaceful revolution transforming the structure of society and, to /dkWV,00WWd/W00 Commercial Residential Payment Options 24 Hour Emergency Service Relationships Matter +  :+i [GAS[he&- rAlny2o Ben Sulser, District Manager Over 60 years serving the community we live in. 765-0130 some extent, reforming some of our traditional ways of thinking and perceiving. To end, I'll return to the 1960's and early 1970's which, although frightening and ugly in certain aspects, was a mostly profound and positive experience for myself, something which finds long discussion when I run into kindred spirits of a similar account. And, I recall from that time my high school English teacher who, trying to help us make sense of what was going on around us, had frequent classes where the lyrical poetry of a popular song was discussed. Verse by verse, stanza by stanza, we grasped the meanings. I don't recall my English teacher's name but I do remember her image, most often garbed in a suit-style, all-black dress whose color starkly contrasted her pale, fair skin. And I can still see those funny glasses she wore, glasses with a thick, dark brown, plastic frame oblong around her little, black eyes. Yet she was cool, y'know. Shining over her outward features was a bright star; she was no dummy. She'd bring in something by Bob Dylan one day, Joan Baez the next, then perhaps Led Zepellin, Elton John, Crosby, Stills and Nash (CS&N), and anything else singing on the radio day in and day out. And we made sense of some of the more-decipherable lyrics, even if only so simple as knowing that Judy Collins was the subject matter of the famous song by CS&N, Judy Blue Eyes. Then there was Joni Mitchell, a lyrical and musical master of the art, whose song Woodstock began my long essay here, some of whose stanzas read: I came upon a child of God He was walking along the road And I asked him where are you going And this he told me I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band I'm going to camp out on the land I'm going to try an' get my soul free Then can I walk beside you I have come to lose the smog And I feel to be a cog in something turning Well maybe it is just the time of year Or maybe it's the time of man I don't know who I am But you know fife is for learning. We are stardust We are golden And we've got to get ourselves Back to the garden. Joni Mitchell The cat could very well be man's best friend but would never stoop to admitting it. - Doug Larson CSLB Fire Scam Alert continued from page 5 the San kuis Obispo coastal area and into Sar Los Angeles, Orange and other Southern A Tulare County Superior Court judge has Julian News 9 Barbara, Ventura, rnia regions. ranted a temporary restraining order, restricting company Chief Officer Danny Victor Williams, Anthony David Ash and Ken G(irdon Speck from: Impersonating governmental fire protect[, officials to gain admission to places of business; falsely representing that they have serviced fire protection equipment and placing inspection tags on equipment that has not been properly inspected and serviced; and Making untrue and misleading statements in connection with the sale or attempted sale of fire equipment contracting services.

"We're extremely concerned for anyone who's been pressured into using this company's services over the past four years," said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. "Their shoddy work has put human lives in danger, and the likelihood that property will be destroyed should fire break out."
