Yeti Restaurant: Nepali and Indian; Well Worth the Drive—and the Bike Ride!

By Peter Bittner Sometimes we SacFoodies explore outside Sacramento’s city limits. It’s not that there’s any scarcity of diverse food options here, but there’s always something exciting about seeing what other cities have to offer. On a recent trip to Davis, I spent a long, hot day biking on the cozy college town’s lovely...

Justice Matters: Plea Bargains Are Ubiquitous. But Are They Un-American?

Justice Matters: Plea Bargains Are Ubiquitous. But Are They Un-American?

By Jeff Adachi Imagine you’re arrested for a crime you didn’t commit. You can’t afford bail. While you panic in your jail cell, your children are at home alone and your boss wants to know why you can’t come to work. You can plead guilty and get out today with probation. Or you can...

Monday Morning Thoughts II: Growth Wars Returning? One-sided View of Growth Offered by Local Paper

An amazing thing happened during the 2010-2014, growth and land use issues which were of paramount importance in prior council elections almost entirely disappeared over a three election period covering five calendar years.

Monday Morning Thoughts: Differences of Opinion on Top Administrative Salaries, VSA
