Alameda Children’s Musical Theatre will bring An Original Christmas Carol to the Alameda stage. The show will premier tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 9, at the Encinal Playhouse (Encinal High School’s west wing stage), 210 Central Ave.

The presentation is based on the Charles Dickens’ classic that features Ebenezer Scrooge, the miserly businessman notorious for his lack of Christmas cheer. 


The Board of Education for the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) has announced applications are needed for district representatives to the boards of four local charter schools: Academy of Alameda, Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC), Nea and Community Learning Centers Schools (the organization that oversees ACLC and Nea).


Alameda’s Nea Community Learning Center (Nea) announced recently that one of their teachers, Daniel Pasker, was named Teacher of the Year by the Engineers Alliance for the Arts (EAA). EAA is a non-profit organization that brings professional engineers into high school classrooms to teach a course in structural engineering that culminates in a San Francisco Bay Area-wide student bridge building competition at the PG&E auditorium in San Francisco.


Alameda High School played host to several prominent professional wrestlers and their fans at the “Stars of Wrestling” (SofW) promotion last Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Hornet’s Nest gym. 

The raucous crowd of more than 300 people, many of them children, were entertained by several renowned athletes including former World Wrestling Entertainment wrestlers Ezekiel Jackson and Carlito Colon and mixed martial arts athlete Bobby Lashley. Other wrestlers on the card included Icebox, Tony “Fury” Hernandez, JR Kratos and the Boogieman.

Alamedans woke up on Wednesday, Nov. 9, to learn that Donald Trump had defeated Hillary Clinton; the Trumps, not the Clintons will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in January.

Locals also learned that they had a brand-new City Councilwoman and an equally fresh School Board Trustee. The Alameda Unified School District quickly tweeted its thanks on Wednesday to voters for passing a measure that extended the period that the district could depend on the current parcel tax.
