Federal agents are tracing dynamite packed into a powerful bomb found at a Vallejo library, and police said Monday the device may be related to an explosion that rocked the city a few hours later. The unarmed bomb, containing 30 sticks of dynamite and blasting caps, was found in a rucksack leaning against the wall of the John F. Kennedy library Saturday, Vallejo Police Capt. Al Lehman said.

Perhaps Kevin Lee Robinson was desperate. Facing the possibility of life in prison because of an upcoming three-strikes trial, police say, he saw only one way out: Bomb the courthouse. Destroy the evidence. Remain a free man. In the end, things didn't turn out that way.

Two men were arrested Sunday in connection with bombings of the county courthouse and a bank, and authorities seized nearly 600 pounds of stolen dynamite in what they believe was a plot to destroy evidence in a pending criminal case. No one was hurt in the pair of bombings, which rocked the Solano County courthouse, damaged three automated tellers outside a Wells Fargo bank last week, and prompted two wide-scale evacuations.

The drought is severe and mandatory water rationing is at hand. Under this austerity, I would like to inform readers that the California Maritime Academy is conducting an extensive research project examining large-scale desalination for California. Having several decades of experience in the disciplines of desalination (for Merchant and Naval vessels), we here at the academy are analyzing the use of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power to make the conversion of salt water reasonably affordable.
