The way we communicate and consume media is evolving rapidly thanks to cell phones and tablets. The mobile world demands effective cell coverage. It will not be many years before hard-wired residential phones will be a relic of the past—they already are for many young adults as well as small business people.
I am writing this without knowing the outcome of the Wednesday night meeting, but hoping that the planning commissioners did the right thing.
IN THIS high vacation season, invitations are now out for the great fundraising party that marks the official end of summer—the Taylor Family Foundation’s annual Day in the Park. It takes place Sunday, Aug. 25 at the foundation’s Camp Arroyo, located on Arroyo Road just beyond the Wente Vineyards restaurant, facilities and golf course. It features gourmet food with exceptional wine and the goal of continuing to raise more than $1 million to support camping programs for children with life-threatening and chronic diseases, development disabilities and at-risk youth. The funds are raised from live and silent auctions as well as an exceptional support a camper “ask” that amounts to generous donations that routinely run into six figures.
The underlying great news is that the foundation originally was formed by Elaine and Barry Taylor to provide a respite for children with AIDS. The treatment and disease management has improved so much in the last 20 years that the mission has expanded because there are so few kids wrestling with AIDS. Last year, more than 3,000 people enjoyed camping experiences.
