You can go to  to learn more about how to comment and/or write the commissioners about not allowing the increase, and about forgiving the debts (electric bills) for those hit hard by COVID.
Eat Plants for the Planet 
We are still collecting recipes for our eventual cookbook. Please send your recipes to
Eating less meat and animal products helps clean our air. Eating locally grown produce, like cacti, also helps reduce pollution from transportation.
Nopales, or prickly pear cactus pads, are sold at some stores. 

One recipe is  Nopalito and Eggs
1 1/2 T. butter
3 T finely chopped onions
3 T diced nopalitos (available in jars or in produce section)
6 eggs (or egg substitute)
salt and pepper, and Salsa to taste
 Heat butter in a frying pan large enough for 6 eggs. Saute onions and nopalitos until lightly browned. Add eggs beaten with a little water and S&P.
Fry until done. Serve with salsa, toast or tortillas.
