Volunteers Needed for Point Cleanup this Saturday

Public Works Department’s Clean Water Program has teamed up with PM Realty Group to sponsor a litter cleanup day at Alameda Point this Saturday, Aug 22, from 9 a.m. to noon.

A new business in a new building on Park Street will add to Alameda’s already extensive selection of inspired eateries. Crispian Bakery, named after the feast of Crispian, as quoted from William Shakespeares’s Henry V bakes small-batches of French-inspired American breads and pastry daily at 1700 Park St.

Crispian is a collaboration between two head chefs, Beth Woulfe and Christian Fidelis de Goes, who met while working together in Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery in New York City.

At 6:49 a.m. last Tuesday the Hayward Fault tapped the East Bay on the shoulder and said, "Here is a small taste of things to come, are you ready for everything I can throw at you?" How many Alameda residents would have been truly ready if that earthquake had registered 6.9, rather than 4.0, on the Richter scale? Would they have been prepared for a temblor that would have closed all the bridges, shut down the tubes and disrupted telephone service?

The Alameda Police Department (APD) announced the arrest of a 17-year-old male in connection with the recent string of hot-prowl burglaries ("APD Warns of ‘Hot Prowls,’" Aug. 13).

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office announced that it will prosecute the suspect as a juvenile and cannot release his name or the charges against him.

The Alameda Unified School District is seeking state seismic repair funds for fixing Historic Alameda High School. The district, however, is in a race against time.
