No webcast this week


The "Behind the Headlines" crew is on break this week and will return with a fresh episode next week.

If you're looking for something to watch in the meantime and missed Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian's Town Hall explaining Stanford University's expansion plans and the county's review of those plans, you can find it here. (Event starts at the 14-minute mark.)
