The printed class schedule for Cuesta College is no longer free due to the budget crisis the college is facing.

Orders can also be placed through the Cuesta College Bookstore website at http://bookstore.cuesta.org. Reference copies of the schedule will be available at all local libraries, including Cuesta’s, or a free PDF is available to download from Cuesta.edu.

Cuesta’s Class Finder also provides real-time updates about open courses available for registration. Class Finder can be accessed by clicking on the “Find Fall Classes” link on Cuesta.edu or visiting http://tinyurl.com/qoz9k2.

The fall semester begins Aug. 16. Reference copies will be available in all local libraries the following week starting the second week of June.

San Luis Obispo

The City Council has voted unanimously to oppose Proposition 16 on the June 8 primary ballot.

The proposition, which the council voted last week to formally oppose, imposes a two-thirds voter approval requirement for local public electricity providers. It is being promoted heavily by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., which is calling it the “Taxpayers Right to Vote Act.”

PG&E is a major employer in the county, providing 1,200 jobs and bringing in $25 million in annual property taxes.

The League of California Cities also opposes the proposition because it could infringe on cities’ ability to provide the best service possible to their communities.
