age that Dean Jacques Barzun reached: 104 years of age. What a goal! Barzun published his most

famous “magnum opus”: From Dawn to Decadence, when he was a mere 93. In addition to the thousands of students he encour- aged, he was another many-sided fellow. Always cheerful, a great listener, among his passions: baseball, mystery novels, classical music, all of the history of ideas and world culture. Sometimes think of the words

of Saint Bernard: “You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.” Tere is great joy and refreshment in the brisk autumn months.

offer up to $8,000 per con- nector for Level 2 charg- ers, and up to $80,000 per DCFC or 80% of the pro- ject’s total cost, whichever is less. “With growing numbers of car shoppers in Sonoma and Mendocino counties choosing electric vehicles, it is increasingly important that

public charging sta-

tions be established at con- venient locations, along the highways, and at common destinations,” said Andy Hoskinson, CSE’s Senior Manager for EV initiatives. “Local EV sales should in- crease as area residents re- alize they can find easily accessible charging stations throughout the region.” Interested parties, in- property

providers, can learn more about plug-in EV charging and CALeVIP by visiting
