Kids and their families are invited to take part in a Downtown Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring a basket and hunt for colorful eggs in the windows and doors of local businesses. With more than 30 downtown businesses participating, kids will have an opportunity to gather a basketful of treats. 

 

Alameda must face its history and rid itself of white supremacist symbols in public spaces. Unfortunately, the Alameda Sun editorial (“Rewriting history now,” March 15) supports the status quo of having parks, schools and streets named after men who have committed genocide, held racist views and were enslavers of human beings by obscuring the issue and stifling discussion of Alameda’s history, its public spaces, and institutionalized racism.

The Alameda Sun received a copy of this letter addressed to students at Alameda High School (AHS), Island High School and Alameda Science & Technology Institute. 

Dear students:
I write this letter to you as a way of saying “thanks” for welcoming me into your hearts and “good bye” because I will be with you no longer as a substitute teacher. 

I have been removed from the substitute list by the AHS principal. The reasons given are so inconsequential that I have forgotten them. 

The West End is proud to host Rhythmix Cultural Works’ Island City Waterways’ (ICW) second year. The truly unique roving art event brings a new chapter of Alameda history to life through music, dance, theater and storytelling. This time, the theme is West Alameda’s famed amusement park, Neptune Beach, among other resorts once spread along the Island’s southern shore.

ICW is set for the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20. Four performances will be held each day at 10 a.m., 11:45 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. Admission is free for all ages.
