Cheers and Jeers: Everybody wants to live in Davis

By
From page A10 | July 25, 2014 |

We offer our cheers and jeers for local newsmakers as we look back over the previous week:

CHEERS to the news that Davis’ real estate market is going gang-busters. Cory Gold, vice president of Coldwell Banker-Doug Arnold Real Estate, says last month was the busiest June in several years.
There is good news on both sides of the real estate equation: Prospective home buyers have plenty of choices among dozens of listings, and sellers are getting higher prices, on average, than were seen last year.
It’s heartening to see that home buyers are still putting a premium on Davis real estate; they recognize the value of living in a community that boasts a top-notch public school system and a quality of life that can’t be found elsewhere.

JEERS to the news that UC Davis track and cross country coach Drew Wartenburg is moving on. We’re sorry to see him go. Since his arrival at the university in 2009, Wartenburg has significantly raised the profile of his programs among Division I institutions, making them among the best in the country.
He guided the Aggies to five Big West Conference championships and mentored several world-class student-athletes. He also has been a personal coach to Aggie alum Kin Conley, a 2012 Olympian who recently won the 10,000-meter run at the U.S. Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Sacramento.

We join UCD Athletics Director Terry Tumey in wishing Wartenburg the best as he pursues the next chapter of his outstanding coaching career.

CHEERS to UC Davis’ decision to join the Woodland-Davis surface water project, investing $20 million in exchange for 6 percent of the total water that will be drawn from the Sacramento River, treated and piped to the two communities.
Having the university share the costs for the project and the pipelines will reduce Davis’ share of the cost by $11 million and Woodland’s by $1.2 million. Those savings eventually will make their way to water customers. Stay tuned for more information on that.

CHEERS to the Bohart Museum of Entomology for hosting weekend open houses periodically throughout the year. The next one, “Arachnids: Awesome or Awful?,” will run from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the museum, in Room 1124 of Academic Surge on Crocker Lane on the UCD campus.
Insect lovers of all ages flock to these open houses to get up close and personal with some of nature’s most unusual creatures. Making the bugs available on the weekends, when families can enjoy the experience, is much appreciated.
