We went the California Capital Airshow in Sacramento as guests of our grandfather, Wendell Houck, 92 — who was honored as air traffic control chief during the Berlin Airlift in 1948.

There were families of German survivors of the Berlin Airlift, as well as families of the workers and pilots. We had our own tent and a special ceremony as part of the program. The day was fantastic, with hands on areas for knowledge and enjoyment.

RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) — Leaders of a San Francisco suburb have approved a $1 billion upgrade of Chevron's troubled 1960s-era oil refinery, the largest in Northern California, after the company offered last-minute concessions.

The Contra Costa Times reports (http://bit.ly/UB8mj5 ) the City Council of Richmond voted 5-0 Tuesday night for the overhaul.

The late changes hammered out by Chevron and city staff include $90 million in community investments and safety improvements such as piping upgrades and more sensors and air monitors.

The refinery complex has weathered a series of toxic releases and other accidents over the years — including a pollutant-laced 2012 fire that forced 15,000 Bay Area residents to seek treatment for breathing problems.

Chevron sought approval for technological upgrades that would allow the refinery to process higher-sulfur crude oil, among other changes.
