Happy Thanksgiving To You and Your Family

November 26th, 2015 Written By Carol Pawley

thanksgiving

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

November 19th, 2015 Written By Carol Pawley

Solar Energy

Homes with solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems are sold at a premium compared to homes without PV systems.

A study released and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that homes with host-owned solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems are sold at a premium compared to homes without PV systems. The lead author of the study is Sandra K. Adomatis of the Appraisal Institute, the nation’s largest professional association of real estate appraisers. The project engaged a team of seven appraisers across six states—Florida being one of them—to determine the value added to homes with host-owned PV systems. Read the rest of this entry »

IN CASE YOU HAD NOT HEARD…

November 10th, 2015 Written By Carol Pawley

JUST IN CASE (1)

Miami-Dade’s eighth-grade students ranked No. 1 in the nation in Reading

Miami-Dade County Public Schools students continue to turn in remarkable achievement, as revealed by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results.  More than 6,300 students in 143 Miami-Dade County schools participated in this year’s grades 4 and 8 NAEP administration. The NAEP is considered the “Nation’s Report Card”.   In all tested areas, our public schools bucked national and state trends, outperforming other large American cities. Miami-Dade Hispanic students continue to outpace their counterparts nationwide in both Reading and Mathematics, with significantly higher mean scale scores than national public school sample, large city schools, and Florida.

This is great news for our students, our teachers, and the economic positioning of our community.

C.A.P.A. signs can be purchased at the Youth Center for only $6.50.

Coral Gables residents may purchase two “Children At Play” signs by visiting the Coral Gables War Memorial Youth Center at 405 University Drive, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 12 Noon. The cost of the signs is $6.50/per sign.

Each City-issued sign is numbered for verification purposes.Communities across the nation have grappled with traffic and speed issues along neighborhood streets in an effort to preserve and enhance quality of life and also protect those “littlest citizens” that are busy at play in their front yards. Children awareness (C.A.P.A.) is a program offered by the City of Coral Gables to allow parents and/or caregivers the ability to purchase and place authorized City-issued signs in the swale area of their property while children are actively playing in the front yard.
