School is back in session this week, and as students begin the new year, parents in the Byron Union School District (BUSD) are asked to do some studying of their own. There will be a town hall meeting in the school district boardroom on Thursday, Aug. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., to discuss the possibility of a new 2018 school bond. Interested residents and families are invited to attend and participate in the discussion. 


Summer may be almost over, but there are still plenty of entertaining events happening in East County. Fishing enthusiasts can grab a pole on Saturday, Aug. 12, and head on down to the Antioch-Oakley pier for Oakley’s annual Kids Fishing Derby. The catch-and-release derby is for children up to age 15, and the bait is free. Registration starts at 8 a.m.
