APPLE VALLEY — The center that supports customers of the town’s new energy program fielded 14,843 calls between February and August as residents sought answers to questions about their electric bills and Apple Valley Choice Energy (AVCE) itself, according to official data.Additionally, 2,005 residents decided against AVCE before an April 1 launch that made the town the default electric provider for the region’s third-largest municipality.

A unity rally got underway near Main Beach in Laguna Beach on Saturday morning, Aug. 19, a day before a planned “America First! Electric Vigil for the Victims of Illegals and Refugees” event is to be held in the same area.
The “From Charlottesville to Laguna Beach: We Stand Together” rally drew a crowd of about 350, according to a police estimate.
The gathering was hosted by Indivisible OC 48, Indivisible OC-CA 46, the Laguna Beach Democratic Club, Together We Will Orange County, Women for American Values and Ethics and Orange County Justice Collaborative.
“It’s a rally to support peace, love and equality,” Gary LeFevre, president of the Laguna Beach Democratic Club said.
The decision to host it Saturday, the day before the America First! rally, was intentional.
“It’s a nice, safe way to have people show up and show their support for equality and not have to interact with the people on Sunday,” LeFevre said.

“Laguna Beach doesn’t tolerate diversity, we embrace diversity,” Laguna Beach Mayor Toni Iselman announced to those assembled Saturday morning. “We’re here today because we aren’t going to be here tomorrow … dancing with bad guys.”
Sunday’s protesters, she said, “want a fight.”
Laguna Beach police have announced they’re ramping up for Sunday’s rally.
The mayor’s speech was met with a sea of cheers, as people held signs saying, “The future is inclusive” and “We are one” higher. Just behind her was a giant “Unity over division, love over hate” banner.
After the first few speakers finished, protesters sang, “This land is your land.”
Joanna Weiss, the founder of Women for American Values and Ethics, said last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville motivated her to come out on Saturday.
The 44-year-old San Juan Capistrano resident and stay-at-home mom brought her 11-year-old daughter with her.
“I wanted to take a stand against white supremacy and for inclusion,” she said. “It’s about showing our children the world we want them to live in. The kids hear about Trump and Charlottesville and they have a lot of questions about the hate coming out of the White House. We have to talk to them about it.”
Trump condemned the white supremacists who incited bloody demonstrations in Charlottesville but he blamed “both sides” for the violence, drawing widespread criticism that he created a false moral equivalency between hate groups and the protesters who pushed back.Original Article: http://www.ocregister.com/2017/08/19/rally-for-peace-underway-in-laguna-beach/
