Morning News Round-Up -- 6.9.09: Colma - A great place to be alive (and gamble)

Lucky Chances is looking to add more tables so more folks can get their lucky chances... Colma: A great place to be alive (and gamble)...

"Watch Dog will see your Mervyn's and raise you one Kohl's..." in Redwood City.

Hotel tax + Millbrae = Probable

Drop in revenue + San Bruno = Cuts (Perhaps more table at Artichoke Joe's will help...)

Bruce at PP Examiner is going to be mad. The San Mateo County Times is getting in on his story about the Pacifica City Councilmembers who are up for the California Coastal Commission.

This must be reassuring to parents, two San Carlos schools, Central Middle and Arundel Elementary, need to be seismically retrofit. Enjoy the last few days of the school year. (And ignore this story.)

And this school story...again... The enrollment at San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District is swelling. (Today's story is in the Daily Journal, but the San Mateo County Times had the same story yesterday...)

The stabbing in San Mateo on May 31st has led to the arrest of Donald Peau Fukofuka, a former Aragon High School football player. The 18-year-old apparently targeted the victim in his home.

City Unions in Palo Alto are fighting back, and packing the City Council Chambers. Last night was public Round 1, Watch Dog expects this to be a long fight...

That fight in Palo Alto shouldn't be confused with this one. Two teenagers wielding pipes fought police. Police eventually won.

Wrapping things up on a political tip... David Lim's quest for the San Mateo City Council took an (ironic but positive) twist recently. Lim was endorsed by Unelected Supervisor Carole Groom... why ironic? Read this story...
