Cheers that the median price for homes sold in Solano County reached historic stability – a sign of health in the local economy.

While individuals benefit or suffer during times of dramatic change in home prices – creating bubbles or crashes – the best situation is the one in which we find ourselves now: When home prices are stable, in this case staying at the $300,000 mark for four straight months.

The result is that homeowners have a good idea what their property is worth, as do prospective buyers. That brings more people into the market and hopefully will end a run of a low inventory of homes available.

We don’t oppose a free market. We just cheer when it operates in a way that helps people feel like they get a fair deal.

Jeers to the disturbing news that a Suisun City man was cited this week for an alleged felony against animals – the suspected trapping and poisoning of a neighbor’s cat.

It’s in the same neighborhood where several other cats disappeared last fall – two were found, allegedly after being poisoned. Cheers that the cat survived, but jeers that it was apparently poisoned.

Jeers to the revelation that the victim in the July 9 rural fire in Vacaville is considered a homicide. The Sheriff’s Office identified the man Friday. No other information about the investigation is being released.

While we applaud the Sheriff’s Office’s diligence in tracking the case, we jeer that another homicide happened in our area – perhaps covered by a fire.

Cheers that the City Council in Suisun City OK’d plans to put a stoplight at the intersection of Pintail Drive and Walters Road. There will also be curb ramps, signs and roadway striping installed – all helpful for an intersection that has long been a trouble spot for drivers.

Jeers that there are no applicants for the vacant Travis school board seat that represents Travis Air Force Base.

The vacancy was created when Dawn Kirby resigned because her husband was transferred to Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina. That the candidate must live on base, combined California residency requirements, makes this a difficult position to fill nearly every time it’s open. We hope a qualified candidate sees fit to apply for the position.
