It started out as an uneventful day at work for Benjamin Manley of Napa - until the ping on his computer. It was an email from Bank of America, confirming a large transfer of funds out of his savings account he hadn't made.

Except, Manley did no such thing.

He sat up straight in the chair. "I started to panic a little,'' he says. "Then I immediately went down to the nearest Bank of America."

It was a branch in Fairfield, not far from his job at a light-fixture company.

The rise of student vaping has resulted in the Cloverdale Unified School District investing money in vape detectors — devices that will detect when someone is vaping, and send an alert to school administrators.

In a Nov. 1 Cloverdale Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting, the district voted in favor of providing funding to install detectors in the locker rooms and bathrooms at both Cloverdale High School and Washington School. Vaping — which enables users to vaporize cannabis, tobacco or flavored “juice” — has been an issue for the district for the past five years.
