Food, fun at Buddhist Temple of Alameda's Vacationland
Japanese food and games were highlighted at the annual Buddhist Temple of Alameda's 2015 Vacationland Carnival and Bazaar, held this past weekend. The event featured sushi, udon, tempury, curry rice, teriyaki chicken, a silent auction and games for children.
Cindy Houts, of Alameda, was executive director of the county's Meals on Wheels for seven years. In that role, she had overall strategic, financial, and operational responsibility for staff, activities, expansion, and execution of the mission.
Approximately 80 percent of the citations were for pedestrian violations, police said. Additional citations were issued for distracted driving and excessive speed.
Firefighters at 1:56 p.m. June 27 went to a house in the 1600 block of Paru Street after hearing a report of smoke coming from its roof, Capt. James Colburn said. They found a fire in the attic of the one-story home and controlled it within 20 minutes, he said. Damage was limited to the attic and goods stored there, Colburn said.
On Tuesday the council will consider final passage of the ordinance approving its development agreement with Alameda Point Partners, the team of developers behind the project that has been hailed as a milestone for the future of the former U.S. Navy base.
Follow Berkeley's lead on bicyclistsAs an Alameda driver who tries, sincerely, to respect crosswalks, I welcomed the recent "Pedestrian Decoy Operation" (not sure about the "decoy" part, though).
