PARADISE>>The town council has agreed on where they would like to put a new transit center, but the Butte County Association of Governments will have the last say in the matter. At Tuesday evening’s regular meeting, BCAG deputy director Andy Newsum spoke to the matter and how the association would consider the council’s vote when making the decision.

The council agreed that they would like to see the transit center built next to the Paradise Community Park on Black Olive Drive and Birch Street after weighing pros and cons of alternative sites like Skyway and Almond Street.

The transit center aims to provide a space where routes from the Butte Regional buses intersect. BCAG is considering putting bike racks and additional covered seating in a location that would be beneficial to riders while not interrupting flows of traffic.

Another representative from BCAG presented on past projects that have been completed by the association around Northern California and the options that this one would have.

Councilman Mike Zuccolillo pointed out that the Oroville transit center, which was completed in 2011, has had some ongoing issues.

Newsum agreed that the station constructed on Spencer Avenue has poised problems that could be a concern for…

  4. How Hitler's birthplace in Austria handles its unwanted landmark

    Braunau am Inn would like to be an ordinary town, like its neighbors in this river valley on Austria's border with Germany. But it's not, thanks to an unwanted native son — Adolf Hitler. Hitler was born here in 1889 and was still in diapers when he left. But that's enough for Braunau to still be known as Hitler's hometown. “If you say you're from Braunau, they connect you with, oh yeah, that's where Hitler came from,” says Christian Gann, a reporter for the local newspaper Braunau Warte. He…

    I moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, in September 2003. The beautiful college town was heaven that month. Gorgeous leaves. Blue skies. Gentle breezes. I fell in love with Charlottesville. I lived there for eight years and it remains my favorite city. But my heart broke to see the streets there filled with anger and hate just a few days ago. As a new immigrant, I worked in an electronics store in a mall in Charlottesville. I sold a lot of cell phones — back then, flip phones were all the ra…
  6. How do you like your popcorn?

    Popcorn became part of the moviegoing experience beginning in the late ’20s. The cinematic staple was originally dispensed in a paper sack, the crinkling of which by inconsiderate patrons was said to drown out dialogue. Stiff, noise-dampening paper boxes replaced bags, and by the time I began going to the movies in the early ’60s popcorn was sold by the bucket. It wasn’t until the ’70s that popcorn bags saw a return to popularity. Theatres introduced a laminated sack that wasn’t as noisy a…

    At the Ocean Beach farmers' market on August 16, I noticed Colton sitting in for his boss — a chiropractor — who was on a vacation. “I’m just out here maintaining a presence,” he casually told me while Tank Girl sat in his lap enjoying a shoulder massage. “I got her in Virginia as I was leaving the Army and raised her in Wisconsin for three years — raised her out there in the woods and brought her with me when I moved here.” Is this a business? Pet massages? As it appea…
