  • <p>Associated Press</p><p>The Fox Theater in Oakland, Calif., is shown. It’s not easy being Oakland. Growing up in the shadow of an icon is never a shoe-in, whether you’re a wannabe princess related to that attention-grabbing vamp Cinderella or a city living next door to fabled San Francisco.</p>

    On Nov. 26, 1962, the Charter of Incorporation of the Hilo Downtown Improvement Association was approved as a not-for-profit corporation. The original charter listed eight "objects and purposes" of the corporation that continue to guide the soon-to-be 50-year-old DIA.

    Aloha Professor Sakovich. I love your articles in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald! I have a problem with my yard in Hilo. Zoysia El Toro grass makes up the lawn, and up to now it has been wonderful, weedless and beautiful. Lately I started getting brown spots that have now spread over much of the yard. I have tried insecticides and fungicides to no avail. I do dethatch every six months, and it is due again soon. I'm thinking of dethatching and then spreading a thin cover of lime and compost to "sweeten" and enrich the lawn. Any suggestions? — Thank you, C.S.

    Charles Whitman barricaded himself in a clock tower on the University of Texas campus and began shooting. He killed 16 people, wounding 32 others. If you were born during the last of the baby boomers like me, then you remember this as your first memory of a spree killer, though we hadn't yet coined the term. It was unprecedented. A bizarre, random, once-in-a-lifetime nightmare. It had never happened before. And it seemed unthinkable that it could ever happen again.
