At this tournament, the Lancers finished in ninth position out of 15 teams to conclude their team season. Rudy Hemandez led Avalon With a 3 over par score of 75. Avalon golf has been led for the past two years by three seniors who Will leave a great void of talent and character when they graduate this year. Jesus Pedroza, Jose Pedroza, and Rudy Hernandez have taken Avalon High School Golf to its highest level of achievemem, and should feel very prbud: of their ac- complishments and contributions to our program. Sophomores Gabe Hernandez, Ricky Tamayo, and Bryan Jimenez and freshman Anthony Hernandez have been a huge part of our success as well. Sophomore Colin Eubank and junior Devin Eubank have been on a steady path of improvement also. Colin Will depart next year for college two years early, leaving an- other gap in this talented team. On a separate path, the Lancers have also qualified three golfers for the CIF Southern Section Re- gional Individual Championships, to be held at Skylinks Golf Course on Monday, May 16. Jose Pedroza, Jesus Pedroza, and Gabe Hernan- dez have all qualified for the tour- nament by finishing second, third and fourth in League Individuals. The top four golfers qualify for the Individual Championship, and the top six earn All League honors. Rudy Hemandez joins his team- mates in this honor by finishing 6th. This has been quite a ride for this group of golfers, and it has not come to an end just yet. It is truly remarkable that such qual- ity golf is being played by kids from such a small town, with such a short golf course. But like Jack Nicklaus always saicl, "It's about the golf swing." There are fourteen clubs and one swing. Lately, these golfers have certainly been in the swing of things. I'd like to say to the young men, continue to represent your town With pride and dignity. You guys are the bomb right now! Congratulations also to Fidel Rodriguez, former Avalon High School Golfer, for helping his Long Beach City College Team advance to the State Finals. Last but far from least, we are indebted to all those who have contributed their resources and expertise to .these golfer's devel- opment. It is certainly paying off huge dividends now.

SCE'S APPLICATION FILING Southern California Edison Company'(SCE) has filed a General Rate Case (GRC) Application with the Califomia Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requesting authority to collect base rate (non- fuel)" revenues of $6.247 billion. The proposed application seeks authority to have the rates become effective January 1, 2012. Every three years, SCE is required to file a GRC in which the.CPUC sets annual revenue levels. Annual revenue is the total amount of money a utility collects through rates in a given year for specific purposes. Base rate revenues pay for the costs of owning and operating electric distribution and generation facilities (excluding fuel and purchased power). THE KEY REASONS FOR SCE'S PROPOSED INCREASE SCE has made this request to continue providing safe and reliable service to its customers. The primary reasons for the requested revenue increase are to connect new customers to the system, electric system infrastructure replacement, and to meet increased costs for Information Technology (IT) systems such as protection from cyber security threats to electric system assets. WHAT THIS PROPOSED GRC APPLICATION MEANS TO YOU If the CPUC approves the application, SCE's request would result in a $828 million, or 7.22 percent, increase over currently authorized total revenues (or a 15.48 percent increase in base rate revenues) SCE's application also proposes estimated base rate revenue increases of $152 million in 2013 and $514 million in 2014. These requested rate increases have been reducedby a total of $145 million below the initial application filed in November 2010, due primarily to implementation of federal tax law changes enacted in December 2010. SCE filed this application last November because the CPUC requires utilities to file a GRC Application approximately one year before the effective date of the proposed rate change.
