TBS Today, Aug. 1

Today has passed quickly and we didn't quite get to everything we hoped. We will remedy that tomorrow.

In the meantime, we're getting ready to meet up with BPD to check out some National Night Out parties.

If you see us, please say hello!

California Magazine posted a profile today of how we came to launch The Berkeley Scanner. Very cool to be featured by our alma mater. (Go Bears!)

On the Story: Emilie Raguso Covers Berkeley’s Crime Beat Like No One Else - Cal Alumni Association
When news first broke that a human skeleton was found hidden under a building on Berkeley’s Clark Kerr campus, Emilie Raguso was horrified.

We also wrote up a quick story about a disturbance on Bonar on Friday night.

Berkeley police: 2 arrested after disturbance on Bonar
The incident came out around 7:45 p.m. Friday with reports of a group fistfight in the 2300 block of Bonar Street in West Berkeley.

There was also a report of gunfire in the same area last night but police found no evidence of a shooting.

Nevertheless, we appreciated the tip and always do our best to find answers to your questions, whether it results in a news story or not.

In case you missed it, we got to talk about crime on NBC Bay Area last night. Many thanks to those of you who checked it out and sent us your thoughts.

A closer look: Crime in the East Bay
NBC Bay Area’s Raj Mathai spoke to Emilie Raguso who runs The Berkeley Scanner, an independent news source in the East Bay focusing on crime and safety about crime prevention.
