Palo Alto Weekly
News - August 24, 2012
The Aug. 17 edition's Best Of section stated that Best Bike Shop Mike's Bikes sells used bikes. It only sells new bikes. In the edition's Book Talk column, it should be clarified that Michael Krasny's talk, "An Evening of Jewish Humor," at 8 p.m. on Aug. 26 is a ticketed event; he is not among the free speakers at Litquake. The Around the Block column stated that surveys had been sent to all Palo Alto residents about backflow devices; those surveys won't be sent until the fall. In the article about storm drains, "Pooling their resources," it was incorrectly stated that the city is considering paying residents to irrigate new bioretention planters. That plan has been rejected; however, the city does offer financial incentives to residents who reduce storm-water runoff. Also, the Southgate storm-drain project does not require the approval of residents and is funded by just one source: the citywide storm-drainage fee. The Weekly regrets the errors.
