‘Broken hearts’ march honors victims at Solano College

ROCKVILLE — More than 70 people with red paper hearts over their chests marched in the “No More Broken Hearts” peace walk and summit Tuesday at Solano Community College.

Each replica heart was “broken” down the middle. The name of a loved one who died from an act of violence was written on each heart.

“The idea is that we want to stop the violence so there are no more broken hearts,” said Karen McCord, coordinator of the Ethnic Studies program at Solano College.

McCord said she borrowed the idea of a symbolic broken heart from Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president . . .

Solano Jews gather for start of Passover

VACAVILLE — The fifth annual Chabad Solano County Passover Seder went on as planned Monday in spite of deadly violence Sunday outside a Jewish community center in the Midwest.

“The Jewish people are still around to tell the story (of the Passover),” he said. “God protects us. God saves us.”

Cheers, jeers for the week of March 30 through April 5, 2014

Cheers to success by local law enforcement in recent weeks of ultimately making arrests.

According to historians, the Romans named the month of March after Mars, the god of war, as it was a traditional time to resume military campaigns. They made March the first month of their year.
