Beloved Barkeep Still Filling Shots, Spinning Yarns at El Cerrito Tavern
EL CERRITO -- Todd Ogden has just about seen and done it all and he's not stopping. The 92 year-old man is arguably the oldest and most colorful bartender in El Cerrito. He is a longtime local cowboy who twice failed in marriage, lost a small fortune, but retains a heart of gold, longtime friends and loyal customers say.
EL CERRITO, Sept. 15 -- El Cerrito citizens dying for more green in their landscape now have good reason to celebrate. The city will soon complete a purchase of a small piece of wetland and restore it into a greenway park complete with water, plants and trails, assistant city planner Carili Paine said last night.
