Like clouds, the rocks at Watson inspire many different thoughts … faces and figures abound and then you end up with someone like me, camera in hand and I shoot those images that tweak my curiosity and sort them out when I get home. I also got a lot of Blue Heron and Cormorant shots this last time on the lake, but it is the formations that fascinated me this time. Not having my 24/70 lens along was actually a help as I could just suck in images like this and forget about the landscape aspects of the scenery.

(September 14, 2017)

Yesterday, in a 4 to 1 vote, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) commissioners voted to give APS everything APS wanted regarding “smart” meters.

The decision was made without discussion and took about five minutes. The points I made in a filing last week against the administrative law judge’s Recommended Opinion & Order were completely ignored. Condoning accounting fraud, condoning APS & ACC Staff dishonesty, neglecting the requirements of a previous decision, multiple examples of obvious judicial bias — all were ignored. The only reason the decision took five minutes was because the administrative law judge took it upon herself to read her pro-APS, pro-“smart” meter propaganda, and because commissioner Bob Burns wanted to explain his lone No vote.

logo_sedonasmartmeterawarenessSedona AZ (September 14, 2017) – Sedona Smart Meter Awareness (SSMA) today announced a program to reimburse residents of Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek for their $5.00 per month smart meter opt-out fees. The monthly fee, which the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) has authorized Arizona Public Service Company (APS) to begin charging on October 1, 2017, is expected to be assessed on APS customers who refuse to accept an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) meter, commonly known as a smart meter. APS has been allowing customers who are concerned about AMI meters for health, safety, security, or other reasons, to “opt-out” of the company’s system-wide AMI meter replacements, thereby retaining their mechanical or non-transmitting meters. But until the September 12, 2017, ruling by the ACC, APS was not authorized to charge customers for refusing AMI meters. Read More→
