Fremont News of the Day and Goodbye

From the cops:

A house on the 38800 block of Bluegill Drive was burglarized. Folks did notice a Budget rental truck in the area. Meanwhile on the 300 block of Fieldstone, burglars failed to seal the deal, and neighbors reported seeing a moving truck near the home.

From me:

This is my last day as the Fremont reporter. I’ve been reassigned to cover Oakland City Hall. Wish me luck. I’ll need it.

There will be a reporter taking my place. I don’t know who it’ll be, and I don’t know if the reporter will take over the blog.

Covering Fremont these past four years has been a treat. There’s a real cooperative spirit here, and a lot of very mature, well-intentioned people. That’s not the case everywhere. No wonder Applebee’s decided to open a second restaurant in town.

Thank you for reading the blog and for commenting. Reporters feed off the passion of the community. Your comments, although often caustic, were a constant reminder of how much you care about the city and how important it was for me to do a good job. Thanks again.
