Part Two
This past spring, the Haight Renaming Committee invited Alameda Unified School District students to write essays and letters sharing their thoughts about renaming Haight Elementary School. “Should Haight School be renamed? Why or why not?” For the youngest winners, see part one of this story in last week’s edition. All writers are students at Lincoln Middle School unless otherwise noted.

Local canine explores Island City

Alameda is a great town to walk in. In some ways, Alameda is hound heaven. My name is Rudy and I have to take my old man for at least two walks a day. Need to get the old guy moving to keep the kibble flowing.

I am a canine low rider. Being blessed with great hearing, smell and keen eyesight, I believe, I catch things about our town that our two-legged residents miss so I thought I would share my ground’s-eye view of our Island City.

I found this great article to share on the importance of shopping local. Before you “click to purchase” please look for that item at a local merchant in Alameda!  

What Happens When You Shop Local

Here’s what happens when you “shop local.”

This past spring, the Haight Renaming Committee invited Alameda Unified School District students to write essays and letters sharing their thoughts about renaming Haight Elementary School. “Should Haight School be renamed? Why or why not?”

Celebrate an Island City tradition and enjoy all that Downtown Alameda has to offer at the 35th anniversary of the Downtown Alameda Art & Wine Faire. The fun takes place Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Admission is free.

The streets and sidewalks will be filled with gotta-have art, one-of-a-kind treasures and tasty treats. Local shops and restaurants will also be offering event specials throughout the weekend.
