In two patriotic moves, the county Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution condemning the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against the United States and proclaimed Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week.
Representatives of the Daughters of the American Revolution encouraged the board and everyone to read the Constitution.
The board also discussed and approved a letter in response to one from Intergen Services Inc., a Boston-based company building a 750-megawatt power plant in the Mexicali region.
The county's Sept. 11 letter says it would be better for the county's air if Intergen were to install additional air emission control technology at all of its plants rather than a multi-million dollar, multi-year program to reduce the effects of ozone along the border region by funding clean-up projects identified by an independent science advisory board.
"It does not take an independent science advisory board to figure out that the best way to reduce the effects of ozone on the border region would be to prevent its formation in the first place," the letter states.
