Good morning, readers!

We've got a great lineup of stories for you this week, including a look

at how the City Council handled a request from the Arts Commission for

more support (hint: they didn't get it); an inside view at what the

county is doing regarding disaster preparedness, particularly when it

comes to providing shelter; a feature on the march and rally over police

killings this past weekend; and a look at local "food deserts" and

efforts to fertilize them. Of course, there's also much more, so check

us out online or in print.

Have a great week and Happy Chanukah!
