- Midnight blaze guts Lafayette Chamber of Commerce
By Sarah Ravani - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
A large fire broke out at a building housing the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce Wednesday night, completely destroying the structure and an adjoining Italian restaurant, and causing more than $1 million in damage, fire officials said. The buildings were “fully involved” when over 30 firefighters arrived on scene at 11:58 p.m. at 100 Lafayette Circle, said Fire Marshal Robert Marshall of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District. The Chamber of Commerce and La Finestra Restaurante were completely engulfed in flames and “a large portion of the structure collapsed on itself,” Marshall added. Officials were also concerned with the radiant heat and the fire spreading to the nearby vegetation.

- Nastiness has never been more fun to watch than in ‘Ozark’
By David Wiegand - Monday Jul 17, 2017
Shows such as “The Sopranos,” “The Wire” and the sainted “Breaking Bad” have raised a cynical view of humanity to new heights in recent years.[...] for all their bleakness, those three series have nothing on the new Netflix drama, “Ozark,” which is one of the most cynical series you’re ever likely to see on TV.Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) is a financial adviser married to Wendy (Laura Linney), who once worked on Barack Obama’s state Senate campaign in Chicago.Marty and his partner Bruce (Josh Randall) have been laundering money for Del (Esai Morales), the head of a drug cartel.Someone’s been skimming the “laundry basket,” and Del sees a need for a personnel change.[...] Marty is spared by fast-talking his way out of the line of fire by promising he can launder so well, Del would realize an even greater profit.Marty may think he’ll have no problem manipulating dentally challenged rubes, but one group of hillbillies is growing poppies for heroin manufacture, another local runs a strip club and is too smart to fall for Marty’s attempt to talk his way into becoming a silent partner, and still a second group of hillbillies, the Langmore family, knows that Marty has brought $8 million with him to be laundered and blackmails him into giving them a piece of it.From episode to episode, “Ozark” is a contest to see who can take the crown as the most morally bankrupt character of the pack.The list of candidates also includes Wendy, who is conning a local real estate broker, the broker himself who fires his own mother from the business because he thinks he can make a bundle with Wendy as a partner, a preacher and his wife who justify their choice to go to the dark side as a temporary detour necessitated by practicality, a government agent tracking Marty’s family who pays local hustlers for nocturnal visits to his cheap motel room, and most of all, Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), mean, coldhearted, murderous, calculating and smarter than the rest of her family put together.Wendy is an unfaithful wife and a snake oil saleswoman with no moral compass, but she’s not as bad as Ruth Langmore, a true psychopath.[...] again, it is kind of fun to watch Ruth get the better of the male morons who make the mistake of underestimating the diminutive blonde.[...] the use of irony becomes so frequent that you begin to anticipate its appearance in scene after scene, causing you to forget what Marty’s plan is and why he has to meet the profit goal he promised Del or face the complete extinction of his family.David Wiegand is an assistant managing editor and the TV critic of The San Francisco Chronicle.
