Employees in a Vacaville union strike due to pay cuts


VACAVILLE - All 91 members of a union representing municipal employees voted to go on strike after the Vacaville city council voted to cut their salaries by 21 percent Tuesday night.

The union represents workers at sewage and water treatment plants and city parks, along with traffic light technicians and other positions. On Wednesday, employees picketed at three locations across the city, including city hall.

"October 15 is when our first pay check is gonna be not there," city traffic sign technician Mark York said as he protested in front of city hall Wednesday afternoon. "They have been bullies towards our members for the past five years. It's their way and only their way."

C-STEM Center high school math, robotics courses approved for UC admission

C-STEM Center high school math, robotics courses approved for UC admission

Starting this fall, it will be easier for California high schools and intermediate schools to include UC-ready courses from the UC Davis Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education, or C-STEM Center, in their curricula.

The C-STEM Center has been awarded an “A-G Program Status” by the University Of California Office of the President. This means that high schools will now be able to easily add the center’s “A-G approved” courses to their own school’s A-G course lists without submitting a complete course content description and going through the traditional approval process with the university. ...

County Road 32B (Chiles Road) Roadwork September 8 to October 14

County Road 32B (Chiles Road) Roadwork September 8 to October 14

Roadwork on County Road (CR) 32B (Chiles Road in Davis) from the eastern Davis city limit to CR 32A will be conducted from September 8 to October 14, with periodic closures to through traffic during this timeframe.

This rehabilitation project will increase the strength of the pavement section, reduce maintenance expenditures and improve conditions for motorists.

The contractor will temporarily close portions of CR 32B to through traffic in two non-concurrent phases, each expected to last approximately two weeks.  The Stage 1 closure will be between the Davis city limit and the west side of the Yolo Fruit Stand driveway.  The Stage 2 closure will be on the east side of the eastbound I-80 ramps to the end of the project at CR32A. 

Napa quake quirk: Creek flows on the rise


NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Last month's earthquake in California's wine country has residents marveling at the sight and sound of water running in some local creeks again.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that the 6.0-magnitude quake near Napa had the side effect of pushing groundwater up out of the bedrock and into previously dry streams.

Three creeks in the Sonoma Valley and two more in Napa and Solano counties now have dramatically increased flows. U.S. Geological Survey geologist Tom Holzer says the forces at work are basically the same as squeezing toothpaste out of a tube.

Scientists say the water will subside as more time elapses after the quake.
