North Oakland Now: Sunday, February 22
on February 22, 2009
It’s Oscar Sunday! For your reading pleasure, the Chronicle takes a look today at California’s freeze on executions–three years and counting–as well as a story on Niman Ranch, the East Bay purveyor of humanely-raised meats that has recently been bought out by a Chicago company. Oh, and there’s the requisite piece on the economy, this time focusing on the international implications of the crisis. The Tribune also offers an angle on the economy: the upswing of patrons at public libraries, coming in both for the free books and the available computer facilities.
