Cerrito Theater, Solar, Del Norte BART Redevelopment and more

I'm back from Cambodia and Vietnam - it was so nice to get away. I've got a couple photos below...but first some recent local headlines...
  • It looks like the city of El Cerrito is going to recommend a Santa Rosa company (Rialto Cinemas) to operate the recently shuttered Cerrito Theater. It sounds positive. Today's story from the Contra Costa Times. The proposed lease with Rialto Cinemas is here.
  • Is solar power getting too popular for PG&E? Today's story from the Contra Costa Times.
  • Will it be Safeway or Wal-Mart at the former Target site at Del Norte BART? The story from last month's Contra Costa Times. Please, No Wal-Mart.
  • Brown grass? No worries, just dye it green. A humorous article on this strange and growing phenomenon in California and around the country.

  1. Welcome back. You've turned into my source for news about the speakeasy cinema. That's good news about Rialto Cinemas.
    I like the photos. A bit different from El Cerrito, eh.
