In Bay Area newspapers

I read two of my favorite Bay Area newspapers on Friday : the Berkeley Daily Planet and the East Bay Express. Several interesting items are listed below. From the Berkeley Daily Planet (June 23-26) - The Espresso Roma cafe in the Northbrae neighborhood (Monterey Market area) was once a gas station. - The recent passage of a side yard parking ordinance allows one car to park in the side yard. The property owner has to maintain a two-foot landscaped zone between the parked car and the adjacent property. From the East Bay Express (June 21-27) - The South Berkeley neighborhood was once the town of Lorin. It was annexed to Berkeley in 1878. - Four "truly stand out" Easy Bay farmers' markets : Grand Lake, Lakepark Way, Oakland; Berkeley Farmers' Market, several locations hosted by the Ecology Center; Fremont/Irvington District, Fremont Boulevard, Fremont; Brentwood Certified Farmers' Market, Downtown City Park, Brentwood. (See page SG15 for more detail.)
