  1. Our pleasure, KP, all non-profit community events and fundraisers are welcome on our Events Calendar. And we happen to like architecture and history at NEWS24/680!

  2. Our pleasure, Mary… the only large-scale march we’ve ever covered where people weren’t throwing things at us or the police! A very well-behaved and earnest group…

  3. What was the police activity on Mt. Diablo Blvd. last night around 9:30 p.m. It looked like it was in front of Oakwood Athletic Club, but traffic couldn’t go by, so I am curious.

  4. @Sandra – there was a pretty bad accident with extrication required at Mt. Di and El Nido Ranch last night. Car into a tree. We carried it on our Facebook page and “Flashed” an alert via that system. Thanks for writing!

  5. And the chase from Rheem to Lafayette down Moraga Rd? About one in the morning on 3/10/2017 they raced past my house.

  6. May need to re-calibrate your watch/bedside clock, Tim! But we’ll be posting something about an incident this morning a bit later… thanks for writing!

  7. What was the helicopter activity over Alamo today, Tuesday, the 25th all about? Does anyone know?

  8. @Diana – Yes, and as our Facebook and Flash followers know, it was an extensive pursuit, ground track for a wanted felon – who was eventually caught in Alamo, Diana.

  9. Hi, what is the update on the shady landscaper, Adan Contreras, is he still in Oregon? Also, I see he is an undocumented alien with an ICE detainer. Good riddance…

  10. @CL – Hi… believe this man is still in custody in Oregon, pending his extradition back to California. Do business with him?

  11. No, just following his case since he scammed people near me in Lafayette. Hope he gets deported.
