You can now read the online version of my first print column for the Alameda Journal. (Of course, you can also pick up the print version of the Journal and read it in actual ink—I know my father will!) Today I write about the light brown apple moth, lice, ants and snails.
Also look for Peter Hegarty’s coverage of fund raising for music in Alameda schools and the campaign for Measure H, the supplemental parcel tax. In case you’ve not heard, Governor Schwarzenegger has proposed across-the-board budget cuts of 10 percent—which amount to a $4.5 million dollar reduction for the Alameda Unified School District. Measure H is the emergency parcel tax which would help prop up Alameda schools for the 10,000 or so children who go to school here. The vote’s June 3. Learn about it.
