Monterey County Weekly published a nice story about the winners of a new award I created for the Monterey County Science Fair called “Water For Our Future”. My intent is to get our next generations thinking now about water issues we may face in the future. I was inspired to do this in 2010 when I met a number of brilliant, multi-national high school students at the Intel Science Fair in San Jose where I was a judge. Some had chosen water for their project’s focus. They then educated me about life in a country without adequate water and gave me a glimpse of our own potential future.

It was brought to my attention last Friday morning, that my name was in our local newspaper. The first time I made our town’s newspaper was when I participated in the Pacific Grove Triathlon. That was several years ago. I did not come close to winning. It was strictly an acknowledgement that I was in the water, on the bike, and running along the coast for about 3.5 hours. I’m not sure that counts.
This time, my name made our town’s local newspaper, buried deep inside, listed under the “Your Town” column. Kind of cool.
