A large pack of bicyclists swarming down the north coast this week are riding to raise awareness of climate change—and incidentally to have a great time in the process.

While preliminary planning for a second Climate Ride on the north coast is just getting started, Carter says everything is in place for any riders who might want to join in the eastern route's third run next spring. In addition to its obvious recreational aspects, the Climate Ride is also a fund-raising event, in which each rider must raise or contribute $2,400 to participate. But co-founder Geraldine Carter says that can be done in any number of creative and satisfying ways.

A power struggle in Windsor is pitting homeowners against PG&E, whose engineers have concluded that the best place for a new electrical substation lies in the town’s south center area. The people already living nearby think that’s a very bad idea.

Homeowner Rosemary Olson describes the reaction she got when she shared the PG&E substation plans with an electrical analyst who has no connection to the project.

 

Another issue with potential health impact, says Dr. Wayne Freenman, is exposure to the constant electro-magnetic fields that would be present at the substation.

The Rialto Cinemas Lakeside will close their doors at the end of next week, and re-emerge, at least partially, in a new location several weeks later.

The North Bay Report previously reported on the Rialto's lease loss here.  And here's a link to more information about the Sixth Street Playhouse.

Meanwhile, the final chapter of the first phase of the Rialto's history  will play out next weekend, with a final day of regular film screenings on Sunday, August 22, followed by a final night celebration on Monday August 23. Part of that ticketed event will include the chance to see one of five favorite films that Ky has selected specially for the occasion.
