PG&E’s John Lindsey joined forces with Cannon Corp. for annual fundraiser
Taking a break from his winter forecasts, Central Coast meteorologist and weather columnist John Lindsey traded in his radar for a spatula on Valentine’s Day to help raise funds for water wells in developing nations.
While Lindsey has written much about our recurring drought conditions, access to clean water remains an issue in many parts of the world. The Well Worth It campaign has raised enough money to fund the construction of more than 20 wells worldwide. Those wells help eliminate water-related illnesses, which are a serious health issue in underdeveloped countries like Ethiopia.
The morning’s efforts resulted in over $1,700 in funds raised. This equates to 85 people now having access to water in their local village.

November 29, 2017 – Enterprise Rent-A-Car provided a $1,500 donation in support of Cannon’s Well Worth It campaign. This generous donation was made as part of Enterprise’s employee charitable giving program. This is the second year that employees from Enterprise have picked Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign as a recipient of their charitable program. Of the $27.3 million that the Enterprise Holdings Foundation donated in 2016, more than $24 million went to fulfill requests from employees to support community causes like Well Worth It that they personally champion.
Enterprise’s commitment goes beyond simple cash donations though. During the Drive-Thru BBQ, seven Enterprise employees gave their valuable time to help out where needed. This event – the largest fundraiser for Cannon’s Well Worht It Campaign of the year—raised $11,000.
Enterprise’s generous donation provides more than 75 people in developing countries with access to clean, drinkable water, furthering Enterprise’s and Cannon’s commitment to helping create sustainable communities locally and globally.

December 19, 2017, San Luis Obispo, CA—In preparation for the Summer 2018 opening of the much-anticipated Octagon Barn Center, the County of San Luis Obispo has undertaken a roadway widening project along South Higuera. To properly widen and overlay on the existing El Camino Highway, a process called “crack and seat” was used to complete the project—a practice that is not commonly seen on roadway projects along the Central Coast.
The “crack and seat” process uses a large truck with a heavy spring arm drop hammer attached to a large truck to “crack” the pavement. The truck drives along the roadway dropping the hammer every three-to-five feet causing fractures in the existing pavement layer. A heavy roller is then used to “seat” the cracked concrete segments by compressing the fragments into the existing aggregate. Finally, a flexible overlay material is spread on top of the existing roadway to provide a base with greater longevity and reduced reflective cracking caused by horizontal and vertical movement—common culprits in roadway fracturing.
Widening of the roadway is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
