October 13, 2009: We’re writing in the rain today.

on October 13, 2009

Good morning Oakland,

We hope you’re staying dry out there as the first rainstorm of the winter season is upon us. Here’s some recent news that caught our attention:

  • If you were planning to head over to the Taste of Temescal festival tonight, hold off! Head over next Tuesday instead to enjoy this delicious culinary crawl.
  • CalTrans announced yesterday new features to the Bay Bridge that will allow added protection against earthquakes once the new East Span opens in 2013.
  • Need to catch a flight? Want to get married? The Oakland International Airport was the perfect place for two Southwest Airlines flight attendants to get married over the weekend.
  • And of course, we can’t leave you without a preview for tomorrow. Two of our former J-school alums, Monica Lam and Erika Trautman, will screen their documentary Heart to Heart at the Oakland International Film Festival at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Merritt College. The film follows an Oakland non-profit that sends American doctors to Russia to train doctors on how to treat congenital heart disease.
