I’m back from Northern California. While my roots are there and I enjoy visiting, I can say that I’m used to the Central Coast life now and happy to be back.
Congratulations to the Arroyo Grande High Eagle Robotics team that took home the second highest award from the Regional competition! There were 37 teams competiting from as far away as Canada. The award gives the Eagle Robotics team an invitation to the national competition at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta next month.
I read an interesting “Letter to the Editor” in an East Bay newspaper. It told the story of a home being listed for sale at one price and then the Realtor found out what school district they were part of and relisted the property 10% higher. There is an election upcoming with a school tax initiative for this school district so not sure if the letter was just good timing. But, it does make sense that a good school district makes property values higher. On the Central Coast, the same holds true to a point but it’s more of a school boundary, rather than a district. My wife and I are extremely happy with the schools our daughters attend (have attended) and feel they are much better than the ones they attended in the Bay Area.
