Students in most counties in California will no longer have to wear masks in schools, effective today / Plans to address climate change on a local level are becoming more common in California. But how effective are they? / Twenty-three area faith leaders delivered a plea yesterday to the Oakland Unified School District asking it to look at how its school closure plan will impact Black and Hispanic students / Last week,  a datapoint uncovered by the non-partisan California Policy Lab showed a minority of college students in the state taking advantage of the food benefits program CalFresh.

Kevin Vance created a program of folk music for KALW, A Patchwork Quilt, in October 1991. He grew up in Berkeley during the 1960s and '70s and spent his years learning in public schools, community colleges, bookstores, libraries, and non-commercial radio stations, as well as from the people around him. When he's not on the radio, then he's selling books, taking care of his family, listening to music, entering stuff into a computer, or taking a class.
