Pamela Price’s first month as Alameda County’s new DA
The past few weeks have seen terminations, transfers and many of the most senior prosecutors put on leave.

In other news, our friends at The E'ville Eye recently wrote about the death of an incredible local treasure, mudflat artist Tyle Hoare.

If you ever saw those Snoopy and Red Baron sculptures in the bay, that was him. His story is amazing.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Hoare years ago when I was at Berkeleyside. I even wrote a very long profile about him that he turned into a book. That was pretty cool.

He was a very special person and a talented artist. I'm so sorry he's gone.
