Nevada’s fastest growing public higher education institution, Nevada State College, may be growing too fast and have to cap enrollment in the future, said president Bart Patterson following his annual state of the college address Monday.
If this round of Board of Supervisors elections was a movie, it would be called "Dull and Duller" and nobody in their right mind would buy a ticket.
For comic relief, we'll point out that Supervisor Scott Wiener is facing off against a nudist who hates the incumbent's ban on exposing genitalia in public.
If Wiener loses the race, we're sure plenty of political consultants will eat their hats - but keep the rest of their clothing on.
The dearth of excitement in the race is one reason political columnists everywhere - OK, in the press room at City Hall - had their interest piqued this week by a dustup in District 10 involving accusations of sexism and counterattacks of incompetence.
Cohen is a young, slim, attractive African American woman with an enviable wardrobe.
Frankly, we thought Kelly and the organizers of the party would take the politically correct route, say the wording was misunderstood and apologize for any offense taken.
Maloof, who is also African American, is endorsing Kelly, who is white, because she thinks he will act in a more straightforward, quicker fashion than Cohen.
Cohen's website lists 40 accomplishments in her first term, from passing tough regulations on guns and lethal ammunition to increasing penalties for illegal dumping, a longtime problem in the Bayview.
The Three Feet for Safety Act, a state law passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, takes effect Tuesday - in time to help make bike riding safe during the traditional back-to-school surge in two-wheel commuting.
Drivers have always been required to pass bicyclists on the left and to allow a safe distance between the motor vehicle and the bike.
Impatient drivers who squeeze past bike riders at a closer distance are subject to fines of $35 plus court costs, which increase the cost to $237.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 153 bicyclists were killed in collisions with motor vehicles in the state in 2012, a 7 percent increase from 2011.
Some drivers have asked what happens if a bicyclist swerves toward them or tries to squeeze through slow-moving traffic between cars, making it difficult or impossible to stay 3 feet away.
A lone Buddha statue placed in a crime-troubled neighborhood becomes a shrine that seems to have helped quell illegal activity
The 11th Avenue resident in Oakland's Eastlake neighborhood was simply feeling hopeful in 2009 when he went to an Ace hardware store, purchased a 2-foot-high stone Buddha and installed it on a median strip in a residential area at 11th Avenue and 19th Street.
Area residents began to leave offerings at the base of the Buddha: flowers, food, candles.
Since 2012, when worshipers began showing up for daily prayers, overall year-to-date crime has dropped by 82 percent.
Robbery reports went from 14 to three, aggravated assaults from five to zero, burglaries from eight to four, narcotics from three to none, and prostitution from three to none.
To this day, every morning at 7, worshipers ring a chime, clang a bell and play soft music as they chant morning prayers.
The original statue is now part of an elaborate shrine that includes a wooden structure standing 10 feet tall and holding religious statues, portraits, food and fruit offerings surrounded by incense-scented air.
In 2012, after a resident's complaint, the city's Public Works Department tried to remove the statue but received such passionate blowback from neighbors that city officials decided to table and "study" the issue.
