Peninsula: Grant provides CSM new biotechnology program

College of San Mateo officials announced Monday a new training program designed for students who seek careers in biotechnology.

The program is provided through a two-year, $585,000 grant from the state chancellor’s office of community colleges. Administrators say the program is in response to the growing bio-industry. A trained technician in the field can gain employment in more than 14 industry clusters, according to electronics professor Roy Brixen.

The program will be offered to all students, including those with no experience in the field. For more information, contact Brixen at brixen@smccd.edu.

City warns residents that fireworks are illegal

South San Francisco is reminding its residents that the use and sale of all fireworks are illegal in the city.

Police and fire will increase their patrols, confiscations and citations related to such activity during the Fourth of July holiday period.

While safe and sane fireworks are legal to buy and use in San Bruno, South City’s southerly neighbor, they are illegal in South San Francisco, and residents wanting to use them should go to San Bruno to do so, according to the city.
