From page A2 | October 12, 2013 |

Artists display their work, church members clean up the neighborhood, students of the month are honored and more – all part of good news around Solano County.

Artist’s work on display

Nick Pino, who attended Oakbrook Elementary and Green Valley Middle School before graduating from Rodriguez High School, will have his artwork on display at the Alternative Press Expo convention in San Francisco.

Pino, who won the O’Keefe Award at Diablo Valley College last year, will be among the members of the Bay Area Sequential Artists group with their work being presented at the Concourse Exhibition Center, 645 Eighth St. in San Francisco.

Congratulations!

Harvest cleans up

Harvest Community Church members, along with Ministry Leader Mark Hughes and the Rev. Frank Rodgers, recently cleaned up graffiti along Sunset Avenue and Travis Boulevard and the railroad tracks near Sunset Avenue in Suisun City.

Walls along Sunset Avenue in Fairfield were completely free of graffiti, thanks to the volunteers from the church, a city press release said. The Harvest congregation had set aside the day as “Faith in Action Day” and set out to improve the quality of life in the community, the city said.

A job well done by the Harvest Community Church.

Students of the month honored

Elementary school students Marisol Ornelas of Cordelia Hills, Yuleidy Blazquez Maciel of Anna Kyle Elementary, Guadalupe Hernandez of Fairview and Leonardo Torres of Cleo Gordon were honored Thursday by Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees as students of the month for October.

Hernandez said she hopes to be mayor of Fairfield one day and Torres talked about his goal of studying at Stanford University.

A job done well by all of them!

County honors 4-H clubs

Solano County is honoring its 4-H clubs.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed a resolution recognizing 2013 as the 4-H program’s centennial year. It also declared this past week as 4-H week in the county.

More than 5,500 youths are participating in the 4-H Youth Development Program in Solano County, a county report said. The county has 12 4-H clubs and they have focused on community service projects the past week.

“The focal point of 4-H has been the ideal of practical, hands-on learning, which came from a desire to make public school education more connected to rural life,” Supervisor John Vasquez said.

PAL center gets new home

The Fairfield Police Activities League has moved to its new digs at the former Sullivan Middle School, 2195 Union Ave.

The PAL center will join entities from the Fairfield-Suisun School District and the Police Department in the new Interagency Youth Services Center.

All the same programming will be offered and hours of operation remain the same, 3 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 3 to 10:30 p.m. Friday.

The Fairfield PAL program is open to Fairfield, Suisun and Travis students enrolled in seventh through 12th grade.

For more information about these PAL activities, call 422-6288.

Bingo week in Suisun City

It’s Bingo Week in Suisun City beginning Sunday.

At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, Tom Hope and Bret Shay of the Blue Devils Performing Arts group will receive a proclamation saying so.

The Blue Devils are expected to open a bingo hall Friday at the Marina Shopping Center.

    You should show some of the artwork Nick Pino made. That's if its not obscene or a portrait of a Communist leader or terrorist like Che Gueverra. Just like what I saw at the UC Santa Cruz Campus that curdled my stomach.
