What do you call 20 tons of manure dumped in Livermore? An improvement.

Sorry, it's a variation of a joke one year older than God's parents. But, on the serious side, traffic along the I-580, well, stinks after a big rig flipped over and dumped its load of organic fertilizer and bark on the westbound lanes.

The incident took place at about 4:30 a.m. when the driver purportedly blew a tire and lost control. As of 6:30 a.m., only one westbound lane was open and traffic was backed up for miles.

Their commutes, however, will be brightened by the sights and smells of Caltrans crews hauling off tons of manure.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
