So This Happened… May 2 through 8, 2022

(CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA, May 9, 2022) – Natasha Paul of Mt. Diablo High School is one of four finalists for this year’s Contra Costa County Teacher of the Year.

Paul has been teaching for 19 years, compelled by the events of Sept. 11, 2001, to leave her corporate job and return to her alma mater. She and Katalina Gallo were selected last month as Teachers of the Year for the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.

Do you see what I see? The Concord Police Department is asking residents and businesses to help solve crimes through the Community Electronic Eye (CEE). The free, voluntary program focuses on registering private security cameras so police know where they are located should a crime occur nearby.

Be an informed voter: Contra Costa Television is airing “Election Preview,” which features non-partisan discussions of several races – including state Assembly and many county posts. “You can tune in and learn more about candidates and participate in the voting process, so that your voice is heard,” said Karen Mitchoff, chair of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors.
