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. The View Of Charlottesville, From Berlin

    To walk around Berlin is to constantly, inevitably, trip over history. Almost literally, in the case of the Stolpersteine , or "stumbling stones," embedded in the sidewalks outside homes where victims of the Holocaust once lived. Germany's culture of "remembrance" around the Nazi years and the Holocaust is a well-documented and essential part of the nation's character. Though occasionally political parties may challenge it, those elements have thus far remained thoroughly fringe. But one…

    A few years ago in Zambia, hippos were dropping dead by the dozens. Soon after the hippos fell ill, people started getting sick, too. Between August and September of 2011, at least 85 hippos died in a game management area along the South Luangwa River near the border with Malawi. It turns out the hippos were the victims of anthrax, the same bacteria used in a series of letter attacks that killed five people in the weeks after Sept. 11. The anthrax outbreaks in hippos and humans in Zambia…

    Hey D.J., How do hipsters feel about the homeless? — Mr. Stinko de Mayo Himself Like almost everyone, hipsters feel bad for the homeless.
