Bomb Threats Day 3

I guess all the schools in town wanted to get in on the bomb threat game. Today it was Monroe Middle School that had to evacuate. I'm starting to think that stupidity is contagious around here.

The Ridgecrest Police announced that they have arrested a suspect in the tuesday threat at Burroughs High School and since they apparently have a confession also I guess the kid really isn't a suspect anymore. The local authorities have not decided exactly what the 17 year old will be charged with but they think the charges will be substantial.

Hopefully this insanity will settle down now that both public middle schools and the high school have had their turn. I really hope the trend doesn't extend to the private schools in town.

We are the Directors for the Kern Energy Education Project; we are looking for a Ridgecrest site for our Energy Blog, which we are calling the Burroughs High Energy Farms, which we will offer to students in the community who are interested in Renewable Energy; science and engineering. we have blog sites in Bakersfield and Tehachapi, which have videos of some our projects' sponsors and their concepts; Tehachapi has the name: "Tehachapi High" windpower, in bakersfield we use the name "Bakersfield High Energy" Farms, and across the country we are published under the title: Renewable Energy Education Project REEP; and Renwable Projects Mission RPM!! We have found that blogging and video logging has created greater visibility than we could have imagined, and the article in the Tehachapi News, with the videos has ranked us as the second link on google under the words tehachapi high.

We are not affiliated with the high schools, having organized for after-school and after-work with the energy projects. We just got our first sponsor in Ridgecrest, and will be showing the building owners of businesses how to produce power from wind/solar and thermal electric power - all of which are proven and viable energy technologies. We welcome feedback from the alumni of the schools in Ridgecrest and Inyo/Kern Counties.
