Rain – what, me worry? Rain continues this week, with heavy rains and wind gusts expected and possible local urban and small stream flooding. So what -- it never lasts long and we’re prepared! Expect drier weather for the beginning of the next workweek. Meanwhile, use the time wisely and check out the Winter Break Movies and Game Days at the Library:
- Christmas Eve: the Aquatics/Fitness Center will close at 12pm, the Library will close at 3pm, and City Hall will close at 3:30 pm.
- On Christmas Day, City Hall, the Library, and the Aquatics/Fitness Center will be closed.

Thank you to US Bank: Our friends at US Bank at 71 Throckmorton Avenue have graciously allowed the City Council to store our "Councilmember on the Plaza" gear (tables, signs and chairs) in a corner of their lobby since 2010. That's really appreciated. A heartfelt "thank you!" to these good people.
Tam High Wrestlers: Tam High JV wrestlers participated in a wrestling jamboree all day Saturday in Pleasant Hill, CA. The young men participating left Tam High at 515 AM (brutal!) and returned home around 7 PM. That's dedication. A very special thanks to coach Andre Salinas for his unwavering style and enthusiastic approach.

That’s all for now – it is pretty quiet this time of year, which is just fine. It's a time where less is more, where family and friends rule. Happy holidays to you - our family and friends! May your holidays be bright.
