Governor vetoes refined A-F school grading bill
mar 29, 2013

Martinez also vetoed a bill [HB 460] by Rep. Mimi Stewart to stop the state or its school districts from signing charter school management contracts with for-profit companies. [answer 2]

Stewart, D-Albuquerque, said such contracts already are illegal under New Mexico law, but that Skandera either authorized or stood silent while two of them were approved in Albuquerque and Farmington. [after session close]

Martinez made only passing reference to the bill in her lengthy veto message. She did not address Stewart's concerns that her administration was violating the law. [after session close]

Officials on the look-out for animal code violations
mar 28, 2013

Dog catchers [ACSOs] and Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies hit the streets in Bernalillo County’s South Valley Thursday afternoon looking for animal code violations that might lead them to more serious problems.

Usually when we go in on the animal violations we tend to find that domestic violence has been going on in the house – gang activity, drug activity,” said Lt. Andi Taylor. [warrantless entry, (violation of fourth amendment)]

“We’re not here to punish people,” said county Animal Care  [ppp?] chief Matt Pepper. [BCS is there for enforcement; ACS is there for assessment]

“We’re here to make sure that everyone’s lives are better – the animals and the people we share our community with.”

UNM president Bob Frank told Albuquerque Journal on Tuesday (http://bit.ly/ZpppiC ) that a number of private companies have expressed interest in partnering with the university, and the school has met with all of them.

In turn, the partnership would help UNM “give some of our students not only a Ph.D., but some experience with a startup,” said engineering professor Joe Cecchi, who is spearheading the initiative.

VanDyke's Hyundai Accent was spotted by an unmanned traffic camera near Alamogordo, N.M. Because VanDyke's information is in the National Crime Information Center's database, the El Paso Intelligence Center alerted Holland Department of Public Safety investigators.

There is no criminal complaint against VanDyke, police said, but officers in and around New Mexico can stop her car to check her well-being, Dykstra said.

Objection to Revenue Decoupling (2009)

Objection to Revenue Decoupling
mar 10, 2009

Chairman Jones, Commissioners,

My name is Erik Hawkes and I strongly oppose Revenue Decoupling or any other ratepayer-funded energy efficiency and load reduction programs.

Why must the utility now compete with local businesses to offer energy efficiency and to install DG [distributed generation]?

Why must utility earnings now be immunized from sales fluctuations? This sounds like a planned economy to me.

Revenue Decoupling guarantees actual earnings at the level of authorized earnings.

According to Alternative B for case 08-00024-UT, the definition of revenue decoupling is: a utility rate design mechanism that results in utility revenues not being affected by changes in customers’ average energy consumption.

Will off-grid customers now receive a bill from the utility company?

Is net metering or even load displacement still possible?

Their idea of energy efficiency is this:
You have 2 options.
Build another power plant for 1 dollar per person; or drive consumption down and charge them only an extra 50 cents. [charge you more for less]
This logic says that B is twice as efficient.

This is ludicrous. If this passes, we will now pay more for the energy we consume, and also more for the energy we do not consume.

The correct approach should be to charge more for not being energy efficient (positive price tiering) - already this way.

Yet, 17.7.2 proposes to [bill] for being energy efficient so that PNM is not adversely affected by a shrinking market. Who said that PNM was guaranteed a fixed market, independent of changes in consumption?

https://sites.google.com/site/erikhawkes/Home/objection-to-revenue-decoupling

growing economy via expiration dates (ppp)

... comment reprint ... article at bottom of page ...

[erikhawkes]: That’s right people. Their big idea for growing this economy is EXPIRATION DATES. An army of evaluators from enumerable Public-Private Partnerships telling you what is or is not efficient, forcing you to upgrade and/or pay a fine. You will at least have to pay for the audit. All having the ability to fine you and to call the real cops to arrest you. At the very least you won’t be selling that asset until it is government inspected and approved for sale.

(Imagine if an audit becomes mandatory, annually.)

Don’t worry about the utility companies, though. As the homeowner is forced to become more efficient, or pay fines, the utilities will get Revenue Decoupling approved – “a utility rate design mechanism that results in utility revenues not being affected by changes in customers’ average energy consumption.” You will be charged a fixed amount for a fixed period of time; regardless of your real time consumption pattern.

This is a way for them to CHARGE YOU MORE FOR LESS. They’ve got you from both ends.

[erikhawkes]: How sweeping are the changes that are coming?

“I am really worried about the 98% of the other homes that are out there.” Reuben Schwartz, the Residential Energy Programs Manager for the City and County of San Francisco.

[erikhawkes]:  98% of us.

“The report identifies four categories of actions – disclose, enforce, incentivize, and finance – to be implemented at three trigger moments: the time of sale, time of renovation, or time of energy rate tier increase.” Lori Bamberger

[erikhawkes]: What must come next? Disclosure. It is still just a secret.

...it is not a conspiracy theory. It is a conspiracy fact. Here is the meaning of PPP:
---------------
1. Public-Private Partnerships – when private industry provides public services for profit. The original taxes for the services remain in place, but a duplicative “service for FEE” structure is added. It is FASCISM, and it should NOT be considered as a solution to the State’s budget woes.It promotes monopolies and destroys small business. If the stakeholder is not a shareholder, he has no voice.

Hooking up
feb 28, 2013

[ppp] [Ruidoso's Capital Improvements Advisory Committee]

Members of Ruidoso's Capital Improvements Advisory Committee [Committee Chairman John Cornelius] were directed Tuesday to firm up a plan to cover mandatory sewer line connections, including drafting new timeline rules, notification letters, a tracking process, enforcement steps and follow-up procedures.

[state] [New Mexico Environment Department]

[ppp] [Ruidoso's Capital Improvements Advisory Committee]
"We would like to get the village back on track for hooking up to sewer," Cornelius said. If the village and residents fail to follow through on connections when lines are available, Cornelius warned that staff with the New Mexico Environment Department will step in and enforce a stricter state rule that requires connection within 30-days of when a line is installed.

impact fees $2,000
connection fee $[x],000
price of a plumber $[x],000
filling in or removing the old septic or aerobic system $[x],000

[fascism] When the sewer gets there, we will send a registered letter saying they have 30 days to sign up for the impact fee and hook-up fee part, and an additional 60 days to hook-up. [ppp; Cornelius]

[fascism] As clusters of homes are hooked up and the impact fee fund grows, that money then could be used to install more sewer lines. [ppp; Cornelius]

"I think it's great that you agreed to handle this," Mayor Ray Alborn told Cornelius.

[fascism] "The federal and state governments told us in 2003 to 'Go do this.' All of those facts are important for the public to know." [Village Attorney Dan Bryant]

"whenever government (or media coverage about government) uses the term ROI, they are preparing you for public-private partnerships ... (they are building the public lexicon) ... only under fascism does government partner with business to make money off the public (i.e. return on investment)."

[local editorial by state senator]
Let’s take big, bold steps for our state
Mar 7, 2013

With little precious legislative time remaining, this choice comes into sharp contrast as legislators grapple with two agendas.

One agenda is very familiar: decreasing corporate taxes, increasing criminal penalties, holding back third-graders, reducing government spending and a “wait and see” approach to our state’s water crisis. This agenda lacks vision and is unlikely to move the needle on major issues, and may even take us backwards.

The other agenda champions new ideas, creating an innovation-based economy focusing on energy and technology, funding large-scale infrastructure projects, using treatment to curb addiction and reduce incarceration, fixing state agencies, establishing public private partnerships, developing a water strategy and revamping our tax code. These ideas are brimming with vision and would improve standards of living for everyday New Mexicans and our businesses.

Let’s take big steps, and finally pursue the agenda that will have a profound impact on New Mexico, now.

Sen. Tim Keller is Senate majority whip.

Identification and Proof of (Health) Insurance

Identification and Proof of (Health) Insurance

“Identification and Proof of (Health) Insurance, please.”

Most people unemployed do not have dental insurance, and it is common to skip a month or two of auto insurance when you simply do not have the money. Now the State is going to MANDATE that EVERY individual carries health insurance or pay a penalty?! With auto insurance, the argument is that driving is a privilege, not a right. Does that mean that your LIFE is now a privilege, not a right? Whatever happened to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Just how close are we to the Mark of the Beast?

The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object [Control] evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

farm warming party

[a buddy] of mine bought a house with 2.5 acres and a private well and is turning it into an incredible farm and micro brewery ...

i went to the farm warming party yesterday ... bbq and home brews ... it was fun ...

there was a greenhouse ... i think four above ground planters ... a very awesome shop/barn/brewery ... a duck pond with probably 50 ducks ... a couple sheep ... Big John the llama for animal protection ... chickens ... a huge trellis set-up with misters ... and i don't know what else ... knowing my buddy though ... everything will be automated and run from his computer ...

this guy always has the best of everything ... he reads online, and then builds it ... it is remarkable ... i never see him not succeed with a project ...

... oh, i almost forgot about the worm boxes ... worm farming ...

... something like ... you build these 2 ft x 2 ft boxes with lids and screens at the bottom ... stack them three high ... put worms, dirt and table scraps in the boxes ... the casings (worm waste) falls to the bottom ... and the third box down is pure casings ...

the casings are worth like 10 times the price of the worms ... and you sell it by the pound.

this guy is doing it all ...

his home brews were awesome too ... i had three different types myself.

There have long been rumours that Benedict enjoyed a crafty cigarette, but officials have always refused to confirm this.

... i went from being an A student to being a C student over night ...

... crushed my ego ...

... and it worked.

March 25th (agrarian new year)

Harris' Farmer's Almanac 2013

"Before 1752 in the Colonies, the new year began on March 25th. That was before England adopted the Gregorian calendar, the one we now use. Many farmers persisted, however, in using the agrarian new year in their farm journals. March certainly feels like a better beginning point for the year than the end of December, the dead of winter."

"The right angle of approach to a difficult problem is the try-angle."

Congressman Pearce: Our banker is China and they have said twice in the last year: "It's no good. We're not going to buy anymore of your Treasury bills. We are afraid you can't pay." You remember when the Premier came to the White House about three weeks ago? He expressed concerns about our currency. These are our banker clearing his throat saying this is not working too well. Now then this green sludge that has run over down here, that is debt that we don't even declare debt anymore. $202-Trillion for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid.
