And as to transitioning to Catalina, "I am proud to be from a coastal community with small- town camaraderie, much like Avalon, where meaningful rela- tionships can be developed and fostered among all groups. I'm thrilled to be able to live in Ava- lon and have the opportunity to continue to develop those kinds of relationships. I am also delighted to be able to wake up in paradise every day!" Departing Principal Joe Carlson said,-"Angelica Gonzalez brings a wealth of knowledge, skills, and hunaanity to Avalon Schools. But, most importantly, she comes to the Island with the sole purpose of support and leading the staff in providing Avalon students with a quality education. During a visit to the Avalon Schools campus last semester, expressed the immedi- ate emotional connection she felt for Avalon students and how she felt at home in this small school setting. While I depart from our school and to~aa with a touch of sorro,,~, I am excited that the school and community will con- tinue to have a leader who will be immersed in the unique culture that defines Avalon. I could not be happier for the Avalon students and staff, and Gonzalez." Wayne Herbst, the rock of Ava- Ion Schools, who has seen princi- pals come and go during his de- cades of dedicated service, says, "I am excited about what Gonza- iez has to offer Avalon. Her back- ground and years of experience on the elementary level will bring added strength to that program. Her ability to speak Spanish and her strong District relationships will deepen the schoot's connec- tions to resources on both sides of the channel. Gonzalez has ex- pressed her desire to serve here in Avalon and I look forward to what she will add to our great school." Welcome to Catalina, Gonza- lez. We trust you will find it a very special place, and look forward to you working with the children and the community. Christopher Blehm is a regu- lar columnist.

Therefore SCE w~ll increase its revenue requirements by approximately $10.62 million in 2013 and this amount will remain in rates through the end of 2017.
