A year after tragedy, runners take to the marathon course – and an American wins.

If you are like most Californians, you like that you can vote on important issues via our state’s initiative process. It is a century-old tradition in California – let the people speak and follow their wishes.

“One Hundred Years of Solitude” gave me a new way of looking at the world. The label “magical realism” does not begin to capture the poetry of Garcia Marquez’s imagination or the evocative power of his prose. Reading his masterpiece was like stepping through a portal into a Technicolor reality where the streets are paved with metaphor and the air is fragrant with dreams.

The merged Twin Rivers Unified school district seems to have turned a corner after its fractious first years. Relations between the North Sacramento, Del Paso Heights and Rio Linda areas remain somewhat strained, but all seem to be unifying around a dynamic new superintendent and the stellar team he is assembling.

The Bee’s editorial board met with the four leading candidates seeking to replace termed-out Secretary of State Debra Bowen. The secretary of state is California’s chief elections officer. We asked the candidates about whether the job ought to be nonpartisan, voter fraud and Cal-Access, the state’s campaign finance database.

Despite no rainfall the first four months of Shahar Caspi’s second season of raising food for his neighbors, water usage dropped 30 percent and yields increased. So, how does he do it?

In nature, renewal is mostly automatic. For humanity, renewal requires sacrifice.

What would racist comments toward the president look like?

Without the No Child Left Behind waiver, Sacramento will once again be seen as a place where caution replaces boldness and the status quo replaces innovation.

Sacramento Bee editorial cartoonist Jack Ohman: California, the final frontier

Natural resources that have long been locked up and iced under are suddenly more affordable to extract and exploit.

Do we really now need to be preoccupied with how to manage our relationship with a demanding hunk of steel in a parking lot?

The Republican National Committee has been working to streamline the party’s labyrinthine nominating process. What could be simpler than an NCAA-style tournament?

I noted with interest the other day the awarding of a second Pulitzer Prize for History to former UC Davis Professor Alan Taylor, now at the University of Virginia. It’s hard to win a Pulitzer. I was a finalist once, and I can assure you that winning one in editorial cartooning is a far different pursuit than winning one in history.

Fix50 will end soon enough. The LA and San Francisco traffic jams never will.

Sacramento surely is big enough for more than one professional theater, especially one that caters to children.
