Here's a look at some recent reports on Alameda issues, events, businesses and people:

Sales tax revenue for Alameda's General Fund increased by about 5 percent in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the previous year, according to an Alameda Journal article. South Shore Center and Harbor Bay Business Park each accounted for more than 20 percent of the $1.6 million-plus collected in sales taxes during the quarter. You may read the complete Alameda Journal article here.

Alameda's shoreline — on both the main island and Bay Farm Island — is the focus of several features in the latest issue of Alameda Magazine. The January-February edition includes articles on Harbor Bay Club plans, Crown Beach restoration and a local research project on eradicating spartina, an invasive plant that threatens wetlands. Check out these stories and more at the Alameda Magazine website here.

The Alameda Sun continues its look at last year on the Island with Part II of its Year in Review: 2013, highlighting new stories from July through December. Read the second installment here and Part I, covering January-June, here.
