After making one arrest related to the March 29 shooting on Oregon and Sacramento streets which took the life of 24-year-old Vallejo resident Devin Lee Whitmire, Berkeley police are looking additional suspects and offering a reward to help find them.
SOLE REPAIR Back in January, we reported that Marmot Mountain Works, near Ashby Station, was due to close. And indeed it came to pass last month. But, be aware that climbing shoe repair services are still being offered there. How? Because Tom Wandall, the chap who had operated that service as a Marmot staff member, has taken over the lease of the space (which is in the building also occupied by 5th String, next door Marmot), bought the equipment and is now operating as Berkeley Resole. Wandall offers repairs and custom work for climbing shoes, approach shoes, technical mountaineering boots, Birkenstocks, and more. Check Berkeley Resole out in situ or on Facebook.

Things finally seem to be looking up in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (formerly known as the Union of Burma): as I write these words, longtime political prisoner and dissident leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been elected to the national Parliament’s lower house. Though Myanmar’s military junta will maintain its overwhelming parliamentary majority, the country will soon be enjoying its first small taste of electoral democracy in half a century.
