10 essential items for traveling teens

Packing efficiently is an art that all traveling teens should master early. With some thoughtful planning and a bit of parental supervision, young adults will find their journeys — whether it’s with family, friends or solo — more liberating if they concentrate on essential items, eliminate clutter and fine-tune their organizational skills.

Board Approves New Climate-Housing, Vehicle Miles Traveled Rules | News

County supervisors approved new Vehicle-Miles-Traveled guidelines for new development in unincorporated communities Wednesday that will fight climate change and still allow approximately 7,700 homes to be built faster and without expensive traffic studies.

The Board’s action to adopt a new Transportation Study Guide brings County policies into synch with the state of California’s Vehicle Miles Traveled law.

That law aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and fight climate change by asking proposed developments how many miles the people living in them would have to drive on average to reach jobs, amenities or transit.

The Board’s vote means housing proposed in unincorporated areas where cars would travel at least 15% fewer miles than the average of all drivers in the entire county including city areas ― could be built without Vehicle-Miles-Traveled studies and mitigation.

That would reduce the cost and streamline the review and consideration process for “infill and

SAN ANTONIO – Professional and pro-level symphonic orchestras are gaining momentum as they travel to reach audiences beyond traditional music halls.

Five years ago, Ronnie Sanders got the idea of ​​having high-caliber musicians come together to form an orchestra and play for audiences for free.
