Nearly 200 attend fundraiser in Cadiz, raising $4,160 for observatory project

By Kelly O'Sullivan,  The Desert Trail Published: Wednesday, May 4, 2011 Cadiz, CA -- Dylan Wood couldn’t wait to see the surface of the sun. The West Hills 4-year-old fidgeted quietly while his brother, Auden, 8, looked through a telescope set up by amateur astronomers Saturday, April 30 at Cadiz Ranch east of Amboy. When the older boy was finished, his eager brother scrambled up a small step ladder and fixed his eye to the lens. “I saw a big red dot,” he exclaimed, smiling from ear to ear, adding proudly, “I’m almost 5.”

The California Legislature has just this morning passed an $11 billion water bond proposal, which includes over a billion dollars for groundwater storage and other infrastructure projects and also mandates a 20% cutback from current water sources. The proposal is part of a broader state water system overhaul that has been pursued by the State Legislature for months.  The passage of the legislation was praised by Governor Schwarzenegger, who is expected to sign the bills into law.  This is very good news for our public agency partners, as they could potentially access available funds for the water project.
