Sideshow activity and drag racing at Alameda Point has now become a weekend routine. Despite community outrage and being given a host of ideas on how to curb the activity, the city appears to be
doing nothing about it. Even the private security detail is absent when needed.
Last Friday, June 11, in Eugene, Ore. at the NCAA Track and Field Championships, Alamedan and University of Oregon runner Cooper Teare won the 5,000 meters (3.1 miles) with the second fastest time ever at that distance by a collegiate runner and a personal best time by five seconds.
