The City of Los Angeles has received funds from the DOE to develop and carry out programs and projects to reduce energy consumption.

Believe it or not, they want YOUR opinion about how to spend the money. That is, if you're a resident of the city of angels.

"The public opinions we are collecting will be incorporated into the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy that is being developed as part of (the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block grant."

It's a fairly short survey that simply asks you to rate priorities for various projects under consideration. There's also room for you to add your own ideas.

Recycle Shoes, Get New Ones at a Discount

If you've got any unworn or "gently worn" footwear in your closet, Sport Chalet will take them off your hands and give you a discount on new shoes to boot.

The recovered shoes will be donated to Soles 4 Souls which will then distribute them to people in need throughout the world. Many of the shoes go to disaster victims and they are particularly trying to fill the need in Samoa for those who survived the tsunami this week.
Donate any pair of gently worn shoes at a Sport Chalet store between October 5 and October 12 and not only will you feel all warm and fuzzy, but you will receive 25% off any regularly priced pair of shoes in their stores. One discount per pair -- bring as many pair as you like.
