California Public Utilities Commission Reminds Consumers of New 350 Area Code Coming to the 209 Area Code Region on November 28, 2022

November 15, 2022 - SAN FRANCISCO - The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) today again reminded consumers that the new 350 area code will soon be available in the existing 209 area code region. With new telephone numbers in the 209 area code region in high demand, the CPUC in May 2022 approved adding a new 350 area code to overlay the existing 209 area code region.

Beginning November 28, 2022, the new 350 area code becomes effective. On and after that date, customers in the 209/350 area code overlay region may be assigned a number in the new 350 area code when they request new service or an additional line. Customers receiving a 350 area code will be required to dial 1 + the area code and phone number for all local calls, just as customers with telephone numbers from the 209 area code do today.

The 209/350 area code overlay serves all or portions of Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne counties. It encompasses cities such as Angels Camp, Atwater, Ceres, Dos Palos, Escalon, Galt, Gustine, Hughson, Ione, Lathrop, Livingston, Lodi, Los Banos, Manteca, Merced, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Plymouth, Ripon, Riverbank, Sonora, Stockton, Tracy, Turlock, and Waterford. The 209 area code also covers Yosemite National Park and Kirkwood Mountain Resort.

Below are some key facts about the 209/350 area code overlay: ? Telephone numbers, including the current area code, will not change. ? The price of a call, coverage area, or other rates and services will not change due to the overlay. ? What is a local call now will remain a local call. 2 cpuc.ca.gov | 415-703-2782 | 800-848-5580 ? Customers in the overlay region will continue to dial 1+10 digits for local calls within and between the overlay area codes, and 1+10 digits for long distance calls. ? Customers still can dial just three digits to reach 911 and 988, as well as 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711, or 811 if those are currently available in their community.

Customers should continue to identify their telephone number as a 10-digit number (3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number), and include the area code when giving the number to friends, family, business associates, and others. Customers should ensure their websites, personal and business stationery and printed checks, advertising materials, contact information, and personal or pet ID tags include the area code.

Customers should ensure that all services, automatic dialing equipment, or other types of equipment recognize the new 350 area code as a valid area code and should continue to store or program telephone numbers as 10-digit numbers. Some examples include but are not limited to: stored telephone numbers in contact lists in wireless or cordless phones, PBXs, fax machines, Internet dial-up numbers, speed dialers, call forwarding settings, voicemail services, medical alert devices, safety alarm security systems and gates, ankle monitors, and/or other similar equipment.

For more information, please contact your local telephone service provider or visit www.cpuc.ca.gov/209areacode.

The CPUC regulates services and utilities, protects consumers, safeguards the environment, and assures Californians’ access to safe and reliable utility infrastructure and services. For more information on the CPUC, please visit www.cpuc.ca.gov.Source: CPUC

Peninsula Clean Energy, Renewable America Launch New Merced County Solar Project

Will generate 3 megawatts of emission-free power for disadvantaged customers

The Dos Palos Clean Power project will generate 3 megawatts (MWac) of solar power as part of Peninsula Clean Energy’s Green Access Program, which is providing more than 1,000 income-qualified customers in San Mateo County and the City of Los Banos with a 20 percent savings on their electric bills.

“This project checks several important boxes for us, including helping us get closer to our central goal of providing all-renewable power to all of our customers at nearly all hours of the day and evening,” Peninsula Clean Energy CEO Jan Pepper said. “Sourcing this carbon-free power for our Los Banos customers from their home county also further shows how we are helping produce and deliver clean and affordable power beyond the coastline and into the heart of our state.”

“Our team is thrilled to partner with Peninsula Clean Energy to provide locally sourced solar electricity to their members,” Renewable America CEO Ardi Arian said. “This project is unique because it will directly benefit the residents of the surrounding community in Los Banos through local investment and job creation. Peninsula Clean Energy is again showing leadership on how community choice aggregation agencies can make clean energy affordable and accessible for more Californians.”

Renewable America is developing, financing, constructing, and maintaining operation of the Dos Palos project in Merced County, which is expected to be online in August 2023.

Peninsula Clean Energy’s Green Access program is part of a statewide effort from the California Public Utilities Commission to help low-income residents with their energy bills in communities that experience higher levels of environmental pollution.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, the Dos Palos Clean Power project will offset more than 6,100 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. This is equivalent to taking more than 1,317 vehicles off the road per year.

About Peninsula Clean Energy Peninsula Clean Energy is a Community Choice Aggregation agency. It is the official electricity provider for San Mateo County and for the City of Los Banos. Founded in 2016 with a mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the agency serves a population of 810,000 by providing more than 3,600 gigawatt hours annually of electricity that is 50 percent renewable, 100 percent clean and at lower cost than PG&E. As a community-led, not-for-profit agency, Peninsula Clean Energy makes significant investments in its communities to expand access to sustainable and affordable energy solutions. Peninsula Clean Energy is on track to deliver electricity that is 100 percent renewable by 2025. The agency has earned investment grade credit ratings from Moody’s and Fitch.

Nokia Finishes Phase 1 of Private FWA Network at Rural California District

Nokia today announced it and partner AggreGateway have completed the first of two deployment phases in providing broadband access via 4G Fixed Wireless Access technology to underserved students in the Dos Palos Oro Loma school district of California.

The district, in the predominantly rural San Joaquin Valley in California, has five campuses serving about 2,400 students. The Nokia project will provide secure, fast connectivity to every student’s home “using Nokia Private 4.9G/LTE Digital Automation Cloud (NDAC) operating in the CBRS/On-Go GAA spectrum, and customer premises equipment (CPE) including Nokia FastMile 4G Gateways and WiFi Beacons,” according to a news release.

The Dos Palos Oro Loma technology team will manage its new LTE network through a secure Nokia DAC Cloud monitoring application, Nokia said, and the school IT staff will provision LTE / WiFi hotspots to students as needed so they can access the internet using any standard laptop or tablet.

The Federal Communications Commission has said that nearly 17 million K–12 students in the United States lack internet access at home, creating a nationwide “homework gap.” The digital divide grew more pronounced during the pandemic as schools were forced to teach virtually and many rural schools — where commercial internet service is not seen by the market as viable — had we options for connecting their students who didn't have broadband at home.

“As we put a plan in place for distance learning during the pandemic, we found we could only provide coverage for approximately 50% of DPOL students via commercial wireless network providers,” said Paoze Lee, Technology Systems Director of the Dos Palos Oro Loma school district. “Working with Nokia and AggreGateway, we are taking the next steps to level the field and ensure every student has the same access to our learning facilities.”

The first phase of the deployment was completed in November 2021, Nokia said, and the remainder will be finished this year. Working on the local design and installation of the new equipment was San Diego-based AggreGateway, a group of network and wireless engineers whose emphasis is designing networks specifically within government and education as well as other sectors.

Face Dos Palos Broncos in classic rivalry

Los Banos Tigers’ opening week starts with the historical “Westside War”. Our hometown Los Banos Tigers take on the Dos Palos Broncos, Friday, August 19th at 7:30pm. The Tigers suffered the loss on opening day last year; but, as many recall, the game boiled down to one play at the end of the game. Is it time for Tigers to get their revenge?

Dos Palos having home field advantage this year, we all wonder how that could affect these Tigers who have not beaten Dos Palos since 2018. With a fresh squad of players, these young cats may have a clean slate to get the job done.

As for their personnel, the Tigers have returning Senior Ayden Barcellos, who had a strong junior season last year, finishing all league second team for the conference. He’s looking to be the main centerpiece for this Tiger’s offense. Also returning are two other all-leaguers, Jaaman Cannon and Izaiah “speedy” Medina, both looking to have strong senior seasons as well. Junior quarterback David Herrera looks to take a leap after leading this team to the playoffs and winning the starting QB spot mid-season. Other notable seniors are Jamison Braniff and Mark Carrero, each play both sides of the ball and look to have strong senior seasons. A younger player to have eyes on this year is Cade Torres, a player who DOMINATED the JV competition last season.

Now, for the Dos Palos Broncos, things look a little different this year with star quarterback Trent Calvert gone. Calvert was a major reason for Bronco’s success the last four years. His predecessor Peyton Van Worth is coming in hot as a junior. Now here’s a kid who played well at the JV level, with a very strong arm and the accuracy to go with it. Filling the shoes of Calvert will be tough, so let’s see how Van Worth will step up for the Broncos.

I spoke to Los Banos Head Coach Dustin Caropreso earlier this week, and this is what he had to say: “Obviously Dos Palos has a very strong squad, so it will be a challenge. It’s my job to keep these guys ready, and we are going to go out there, fight hard, and play to the very best of our abilities.”

Encouraging, strong words from an alumni and coach, Caropreso who is no stranger to the West Side War. Let’s see if he can lead these Tigers to victory on Friday and snap that three-game losing streak.

Okay, Los Banos, come out and support your Los Banos Tigers for their first Friday Night Lights of the season, August 19th, at Bronco stadium at 1701 E. Blossom Street in Dos Palos, California. Varsity kickoff is at 7:30.

It’s official. Daughter of California farmworkers makes U.S. District Court history

Ana Isabela de Alba – the 42-year-old daughter of Mexican immigrant farmworkers who grew up in South Dos Palos using a sleeping bag until she was 15 – became the first Latina judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California on Friday afternoon.

Accompanied by her mother, Ana Celia de Alba, and about three dozen relatives and supporters, the Fresno County Superior Court judge took the oath of office from U.S. District Judge Dale A. Drozd less than six months after being nominated for the post by President Joe Biden.

In a 7-minute ceremony, de Alba was sworn in to her new post.

“We’re so happy to have you as a colleague. We just couldn’t be prouder and more happy about her coming to this court and agreeing to serve with us,” Drozd told de Alba before swearing her in.

Becoming a trailblazer isn’t lost on de Alba.

“It’s been absolutely huge because you have an entire generation of people who think I don’t belong there,” she said.

Growing up, she didn’t have the luxury of counselors who believed in her desire to go into law or who could help her with the college application process.

“I felt very lonely,” said de Alba, who absorbed the necessary information by spending time with a friend whose parents were lawyers.

She then had her mother demand that she be given a chance to take junior college courses while in high school to improve her chances of going to college.

“It’s all about confidence. It’s all about being able to put your best foot forward,” said de Alba. “It doesn’t matter that you’re the first because you can still do it. You don’t need the five generations behind you to get to that point.”

Her humble background was brought up at the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting by Sen. Alex Padilla.

“Judge de Alba watched her mother and grandmother struggle with unfair treatment, as they worked together in some of the hardest jobs in the world,” said Padilla. “She decided that one day, she would become a lawyer to help families like her own.”

Padilla, who noted that de Alba established a workers’ rights clinic for low wage workers, called her “dedicated, fair and universally respected by her colleagues.”

“She will bring a deep knowledge of the Central Valley, and a passion for equal justice informed by her own family’s story,” said Padilla.

De Alba, speaking during an interview on July 6, noted her mother’s determination in making sure her only daughter thrived.

“I literally had to take my mother in sometimes when I was 16 and say, ‘I want her to take college classes’ because my school didn’t have advanced placement classes and I wanted to go to Harvard,” said de Alba.

The school discouraged her from taking those classes, saying the classes would be too hard and she would get discouraged.

“That was a little frustrating,” she said.

Her mother also ended de Alba’s days of working in the fields.

“I worked in the fields with my mom until about the fourth grade,” said de Alba, who by then was starting to get improper comments from male field workers.

Her mother said, “You’re not going to work here because you’re too little. I don’t want you exposed to that.”

De Alba kept working, but not in the fields. She put her reading and English skills to work as a paid tutor. In high school, she worked for an insurance company across from the high school before getting a job at the hospital her final two years.

Ana Celia also went to bat for her daughter when she wanted to go to UC Berkeley.

“My father was like, ‘Where are you going? You don’t need to go. You need to stay here and get married,’” said de Alba. “My mom was like, ‘OK, you have the brains for it. You got in. Do it. My mom was a great support.”

Ana Celia remembers when her daughter got poor marks in penmanship in the third grade.

“She spent her entire vacation alone, writing, writing, writing until she learned it well,” said her mother.

Ana Celia encouraged parents to “have faith in their children because they can if you teach them that they can.”

De Alba’s idea of becoming a lawyer came when she was 6 years old and accompanying her mother and grandmother while they were picking tomatoes and getting paid by the bucket.

“My job was basically to go get the water so they wouldn’t have to stop there in the middle of the row,” said de Alba.

One day, she complained the water was dirty.

“The mayordomo (foreman) made an example of me. He said, ‘Oh well, if we’re all going to complain, we might as well call the media!’”

De Alba got upset. “I didn’t do anything wrong. This guy is not letting us have drinking water. There’s nothing wrong with that.”

That evening while recounting the experience to Fernando, the oldest of her three brothers, he responded, “Well, you’re pretty mouthy, so you should become a lawyer.”

“What’s a lawyer do?” she asked.

“They fight for people’s rights with their words. They argue all day.”

“Oh, sounds like a dream job for me.”

That sparked her career choice.

“My mom is very strong-willed. She’s very intelligent; one of the smartest people I’ve ever met,” said de Alba of her mother who only got a second-grade education in Jalisco, México.”

Her mother, she said, is that there is no crying allowed.

“With my mother, we were never told to back down, be quiet. But we weren’t braggy,” said de Alba. “We certainly didn’t shy away from acknowledging that something was wrong and they try to stand up for people if we could stand up for them.”

De Alba will be busy trying to shore up what is the busiest U.S. District Court in the country. Judges carry twice the workload of the average judge in the nation.

“That court has been overworked and understaffed for decades really, because they don’t have enough judges and they have too many cases,” said University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias. “And, Congress has not had a comprehensive judgeship bill in 32 years.”

De Alba looks forward to the challenge.

“I love to work hard. It’s part of my DNA,” said de Alba.
