This week, our story on Newark’s red light cameras hit a nerve with Patch readers. More than 60 comments later, Patch readers shared their thoughts and experiences with red light camera tickets, traffic collisions and Newark roads.
Also this week, Newark traffic officers joined a zero-tolerance campaign aimed at drivers who use cell phones illegally and Newark school board members examined a financial plan that does not count on a voter-approved tax extension.
We also previewed the new laser tag operation at Stevenson Station Center.
Plus, Newark Patch highlighted Tri-Cities Jazzercise members who helped raise funds for the Make a Wish Foundation and a group who celebrated Afghan and Persian culture with its Nowroz festival at Swiss Park.
Coming up: Grab a bib and get ready to eat with your hands. We’ll take you inside Ray’s Crab Shack on Mowry Avenue. And we’ll preview Earth Day celebrations in the Bay Area.
