THE Nooner for October 27, 2017
Advertise in The Nooner to reach over 8,000 readers
If the subscription price is a bit steep for you and you don't need the election analysis, help support independent coverage of California politics and policy by chipping in whatever you can afford. Thank you for your support!
Thank you to the new and renewing subscribers! I know that we're not in the middle of the legislative session, but The NOONER continues to be an around the clock effort. Obviously, I can't do it without your support.
I'm also adding an additional graphic advertising opportunity. Many of the advocacy interests have existing 120x90 ads, largely for image or business building, and have asked for them here. I will add that option for $250 per month or $2000 for a year. Three ads will be tiled across in place of the existing 300x250 ads, so it won't increase the overall length of The Nooner. They will also be included on the AroundTheCapitol.com home page. Just email me at email@example.com.
GAME THREE: Opening pitch at 5:20 p.m. PITCHERS: On the mound for the visiting Dodgers--Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86 ERA). On the mound for the Astros--Lance McCullers Jr. (7-4, 4.25 ERA). ODDS: Houston -128. TV: FOX.
Happy Friday my friends! It looks like it'll beautiful day here in Sacramento and it's cooled off a bit down south, so everybody should be groovin'.
I woke up this morning thinking about where to buy gardening gloves today before joining the community to plant 28 cherry trees across the street in Southside Park tomorrow.
Meanwhile, our President was tweeting this morning against bilionaire investor Californian Tom Steyer. Admittedly, both are being a-holes, although one ran to do so.
#CAKEDAY: Light those candles for Darius Anderson, Steve Castellanos, and Lesli Stein!
