Today’s Headlines

Note: I just talked to a consultant’s for BHUSD who wanted me to clarify that contrary to what I reported in yesterday’s story poking the Beverly Hills Courier, Metro’s geology/seismology team spent more than one weekend on campus, and was actually there for seven different days.  Not enough to do a trench study, but more than a weekend.  This paragraph also appears as an update on yesterday’s story.
