Streetwise: Being green
Retired physician Michael Weiner with wife, Denise: It means caring for the environment and the universe by recycling and utilizing sustainable resources. My wife and I drive a Prius plug-in and a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) that is street legal, and we got a ticket for it. Later, when we proved it was legal, the police department sent a sergeant to our house to apologize for the mistake. We also have solar panels and a well at our house in Alamo as well as organic fruit trees. We’re doing our part.
