My friend Bob Stein has a piece on Chron.com on the runoff in District I. If you are interested in the District I runoff, you need to check it out.

The Baseball Hall of Fame ballot was announced yesterday. Name the first five members of the 1936 inaugural class.

I received a Yolanda Navarro Flores for HCC Trustee mailer yesterday.
