    Nov 19, 2014 | The Campbell Reporter

    Despite intense opposition from students and state lawmakers, a UC Regents committee on Wednesday afternoon gave a preliminary OK to a tuition plan that would raise student fees by up to 5 percent each year through 2019-20. The committee managed to cast its vote as protesters chanted: "Hey hey, ho ho, tuition hikes have got to go!" UC President Janet Napolitano and other university leaders argued the 5 percent was a cap, and that the increases would be lower - or nonexistent -- if the state gives the system more money than expected.

    Nov 16, 2014 | The Campbell Reporter

    As she sips a cup of English Breakfast tea at a Starbucks on a drizzly day, it's not obvious that the Dublin attorney and mother of 11-year-old twins is seen by the GOP as a giant-killer, having just beaten Democrat Tim Sbranti to become the first Republican to win a Bay Area legislative or congressional election in eight years. And that means she already has a bulls-eye on her back as Democrats start mulling how to retake the East Bay's 16th Assembly District -- a swing district if there ever was one -- in 2016.
