The varsity quarterback who suffered a brain injury during the Avalon High School game is now out of the intensive care unit, according to a Sunday, Oct. 7, blog posted by friends of the family.

Dax Ryan McGregor, 17, of Wildomar Cornerstone Christian School, was apparently injured during the homecoming football game here in Avalon, on Sunday, Sept. 21. McGregor was tackled three or four times during the game, according to Jennifer Leonhardi, office manager of the Catalina Islander.

An attorney opposed to Southern California Edison’s request to increase Catalina’s water rates has released a study that says Edison charges the highest rates in the state. Norris Bishton Jr., who represents the opponents (or “protestants”) of Edison’s so-called general rate case before the California Public Utilities Commission, quoted Administrative Judge Robert Barnett as saying Edison’s current rates “are by far the highest in the State of California” in his so-called Proposed Decision.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, also known as CalFire, recently declared Avalon a Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone.

In response, the Avalon City Council adopted Chapter 7A of the California Building Code at the council’s Tuesday, July 17, meeting.

The Public Utilities Commission still hasn’t reached a decision on whether Catalina’s water rates will increase or who will pay for the increase.
The commissioners decided to delay a decision on Thursday, July 12, for “further study” and rescheduled the issue for an Aug. 2 meeting. Some commissioners have expressed concern about a proposal that would apply Catalina water rates to Southern California Edison’s mainland customers’ electricity bills.
