Morning, readers!

I hope your summer is going great so far. How 'bout some reading material to brighten your day? This week's feature story is a little heavy, but well worth it. The Sacramento News & Review's news editor takes a sincere look at the Iranian side of his family and their journey to America. In the process, he highlights Iran's history with America and offers insight into what is happening between the two countries now.

In other news: Old Durham Wood stopped accepting green waste—here's why; public dissent shoots down a proposed city curfew during a PG&E blackout—at least for now; and BEC has a new chief, and a fresh agenda.

Until next time,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
