    LOS GATOS — Netflix, a Silicon Valley tech titan and streaming pioneer whose outlook has turned fuzzy amid fierce competition, is seeking to sublease two Los Gatos office buildings as part of an ongoing cutback binge. The company sublease efforts are focused on two buildings that together total 164,000 square feet, according to a pair of marketing brochures that are being circulated by JLL, a commercial real estate firm. One building, at 150 Winchester Circle, totals 82,700 square feet, while the other office building, at 100 Winchester Circle, totals 81,300 square feet, the JLL marketing brochures state. The Netflix office space cutbacks in Los Gatos arrived in the wake of the Netflix disclosure of two sour quarters of financial results covering the first six months of 2022.

The man was crabbing at the West Sayville docks, located on West Avenue in West Sayville, when witnesses discovered him in the water at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12, Suffolk County Police said.  The good Samaritans pulled him from the water and attempted to resuscitate him, said police.

    MONTEREY COUNTY — A man sentenced to prison 25 years ago for a robbery conviction in Santa Clara County was reportedly killed by another inmate at Salinas Valley State Prison last week, authorities said. Peter Hernandez, 59, was gravely wounded Wednesday morning at the prison located in the Monterey County city of Soledad, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The agency said in a news release Monday that correctional officers were called at 8:04 a.m. that day to a housing unit dayroom — a shared general-purpose space — and saw 30-year-old Angel Montes attacking Hernandez with a prison-made weapon. After using “chemical agents” to stop the attack, the officers called for an ambulance and staff tried to revive Hernandez, but he died about 15 minutes later, authorities said. His death is being investigated by the prison, Monterey County District Attorney’s Office and coroner’s division as a homicide, and Montes was put into segregated housing, according to the news release. No other injuries were reported. Additional details about the circumstances of the attack were not immediately released. Related Articles...
    Sixth-grader Ruina Li, 11, helped paint some white flowers over four days. Sophomore Jason Li, 15, created a tree and texturized it with mixed colors before drawing leaves on flowers and clouds in the sky. The pair worked with at least 10 other kids ranging in ages from 9 to 15 years old and Bay Area muralist Xiangfei Bai during the first week of August to beautify the outer walls of a bathroom at Stevens Creek Park in Cupertino. The collaboration was part of a Santa Clara County Parks program that grouped students with the artist to complete two new public murals. The first was finished earlier this summer on the outside walls of bathrooms at Alviso Marina. Although she had never painted anything before, Ruina learned on the job and said now she wants to develop her newfound talent. “I like drawing. I want to get to a point where I like it and I’m good at it,” she said. Jason Li, on the other hand, has taken art classes in school, but this was his first time painting anything on...
    SAN JOSE — A man “lurked and stalked” seven people — mostly girls and women — he chose at random before shooting them with a high-powered pellet gun over the past few months in San Jose and Campbell, authorities szid — adding that most of his victims still carry the pellets in their bodies because of how they were targeted. Nicholas Edward Montoya, 38, of Campbell, has been charged with a series of pellet gun attacks targeting primarily girls and women in San Jose and Campbell. (San Jose Police Dept.)  Police and prosecutors say 38-year-old Campbell resident Nicholas Edward Montoya had no connection to any of the victims of the attacks. Dating back to April, the shootings injured four women, two girls and one man. “These were deliberate snipe attacks on innocent victims including a 9-year-old girl, a 15-year-old girl, and several other young women,” said Marisa McKeown, a supervising Santa Clara County deputy district attorney. Montoya was arrested Tuesday at his home and charged Wednesday with seven counts of assault with a deadly weapon and seven counts of battery...
    HAYWARD — BART officials stopped service Wednesday after an investigation into a stabbing aboard a train injured a man and led to the South Hayward station’s closure, authorities said. Shortly before 8:10 p.m., BART police responded to reports of an altercation aboard a train at the station, a BART spokesperson Cheryl Stalter said. A man stabbed in that altercation suffered an unspecified non-life-threatening injury, Stalter said. Police investigating the incident recovered a weapon, but have not yet placed a suspect in custody she added. Station staff began single-tracking trains along the Berryessa line between Hayward and Union City stations without stopping, with mutual-aid service provided by AC Transit’s No. 99 bus.

    CRESCENT CITY — A man convicted in Santa Clara County being held at Pelican Bay State Prison has been accused of killing another inmate at the correctional facility, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The death was reported Friday evening at the prison located in Crescent City near the Oregon border. That afternoon, correctional officers and medical staff responded to a dayroom — a shared space for members of a housing unit — and found the aftermath of an attack that left a 22-year-old man seriously injured. The man, identified as Uriel Otero, died from his injuries. Soon after, 23-year-old Fernando Torres Lopez was identified as the attack suspect. Torres Lopez was put into segregated housing pending an investigation by the prison, the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office and the Del Norte County Coroner. No one else was injured in the reported attack. Torres Lopez was sentenced to 19 years and eight months in prison on Aug. 16, 2021, after he was convicted in the South Bay of attempted second-degree murder, carrying a firearm in public...
    For the past seven years, a sprawling ranch just south of Gilroy has been at the center of a pitched battle between investors who want to mine the land – a move that could play a significant role in the Bay Area economy in the coming decades – and opponents who argue the project would be a disaster for the environment and desecrate land Native American Indians consider sacred. Now, a long-awaited and newly released 652-page environmental report commissioned by Santa Clara County offers the most detailed look yet into a proposed 403-acre sand and gravel quarry estimated to generate 35 million cubic yards of materials, starting in 2025. After investigating more than a dozen ways the mine could affect the land and surrounding area, the report came to mixed conclusions on the core issues causing controversy, such as: Air quality and animal movement would be significantly affected, but the habitats of threatened fish, owls and badgers would not be as negatively impacted if certain measures were taken to protect them. GILROY, CALIFORNIA – NOV. 30: A sand mining operation...
    SAN JOSE — Two big apartment complexes in the South Bay have been bought by groups led by a California investor on the same day for more than a half-billion dollars, deals that hint at a healthy regional housing sector. The Platform Urban Apartments in San Jose and Eleanor Apartments in Milpitas, have been purchased for a combined $513 million, Santa Clara County property documents show. The 551-unit Platform Urban complex was bought for $320 million by a joint venture led by MG Properties and Oaktree Capital Management, documents filed on July 28 with the county show.

    The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office charged a Morgan Hill resident with multiple crimes after his arrest earlier this week in connection with an apparent apartment complex mail theft attempt, authorities said. In a statement Tuesday, Emeryville police said dispatchers received a call at 1:51 a.m. Wednesday from a security firm whose surveillance cameras had captured a man opening mailboxes in the mailroom of Bridgewater Apartments at 6400 Christie Ave. When officers responded and arrived at the building, the man fled from them, jumping over a railing from a garage’s second floor into bushes before surrendering to nearby officers, who identified him as Shomari Evans, 42, after he first provided a false name. Officers also recovered 37 pounds of unopened mail taken from the mailroom, as well as modified shaved “master” keys used to open the mailboxes, said police, who have also reached out to United States Postal Inspection Service investigators. According to a probable-cause statement filed with the district attorney’s office, a search of Evans yielded just over 30 grams of methamphetamine. Evans was taken to a hospital for...

    A Los Gatos man has pleaded no contest to an array of weapons-related crimes in connection with his arrest in Campbell last summer after a chance police stop and search of his car turned up illegal rifles, pipe bomb materials, and personally inscribed bullets with phrases including “Cop killer.” What made the case particularly notorious was the recovery of a manifesto and journal writings that mapped out specific kidnapping and robbery plots at locations in the Bay Area and beyond, and described genocidal fantasies to “wipe out the Black, Hispanic and Jewish populations,” according to authorities. Wesley Charles Martines (Campbell Police Department)  Wesley Charles Martines, 33, pleaded no contest to a dozen drug- and weapons-related charges in a San Jose courtroom Wednesday, in accordance with a plea agreement reached between his attorneys and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. According to the agreement, which is subject to a judge’s final approval at a Dec. 2 sentencing hearing, Martines will serve a prison term of between two and three years. Until then, Martines will continue being held without bail in...
    HAYWARD — BART officials stopped service between the system’s Bay Fair and South Hayward stations Monday afternoon after a sighting of a person on the trackway, authorities said. Shortly after 4:10 p.m., officials learned of the sighting and stopped service in the Berryessa, Richmond and Millbrae directions. Station staff began turning back trains along the line at Bay Fair and South Hayward stations, with mutual-aid service provided by AC Transit’s No. 10 bus between Bay Fair and Hayward stations, and No. 99 bus between Hayward and South Hayward stations.

    SAN JOSE — The office markets in the South Bay and San Mateo County are looking far stronger than San Francisco’s office sector, new reports from commercial real estate firm Colliers show. The vacancy rates for office buildings in both Santa Clara County and the Peninsula are much smaller — in the 6% range — than is the case in San Francisco — which is nearly at a 20% vacancy rate — according to the Colliers reports. During the April-June second quarter of this year, the office vacancy rate was 6.4% in Santa Clara County, 6% in San Mateo County and 19.9% in San Francisco, the new research reports show. The reports suggest that tech companies still hunger for office space in both Silicon Valley and the Peninsula, but are attempting to exit offices in San Francisco in a big way.

    By Maureen O’Hare | CNN Get your credit card out and your favorite booking platforms at the ready: US magazine and news website TIME has just released its list of the world’s 50 greatest places of 2022. The list was compiled by its international network of correspondents and contributors, and, says TIME in a statement, “with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.” The 50 destinations to make the cut include both classic big-hitters and less-explored spots, but what unites them is that they are “thriving, growing and changing,” says TIME, “charting a path to economic recovery” and “investing in sustainability.” North America In the United States, TIME is recommending the hip West Coast centers of Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, the Florida coastal cool of Miami, and Michigan’s “Comeback City” Detroit.

    South Bay rental prices are surging back to pre-pandemic levels, leaving San Francisco as the last large metro area in the country where renters are paying less for an apartment than before the onset of COVID-19, according to a new report. In the months after the pandemic hit in March 2020, rental prices in many of the Bay Area’s core cities cratered as more people began working remotely and fled to the suburbs or areas outside the region. Prices ticked back up but had failed to fully rebound, even as rents in other large cities across the country soared to record highs after initial drop-offs. “The Bay Area had really the deepest cuts in prices and some of the slowest returns,” said Rob Warnock, senior research associate at rental site Apartment List, which produced the report. He cited the region’s high number of “remote-friendly” workers as a main cause. But as more of those white-collar employees return to the office, inflation ripples across the broader economy and rising mortgage rates squeeze would-be homebuyers, rental prices in some of the Bay...
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. —  When Great America amusement park in Santa Clara opened in 1976, it quickly became the Bay Area’s version of Disneyland. It was never as popular or iconic as Walt Disney’s Anaheim landmark, but Great America quickly became the go-to theme park for families and tourists — and a welcome diversion in a quiet Silicon Valley suburbia that locals say is low on thrills. But Great America is now poised to close in coming years as part of a huge real estate deal that speaks to the dramatically changing development patterns in California’s tech capital. When Great America was built on the quiet edge of San Francisco Bay, the tech boom was in its early stages. Since then, giant developments and housing complexes, including the in-progress Google village in downtown San Jose, have popped up around it. Apple’s new headquarters is a few miles away in Cupertino, and Facebook is north in Menlo Park. The Great America location is now considered prime because of quick access to mass transit lines. Although officials haven’t confirmed what the the...
    A SWIMMER has been killed in a horror shark attack at a beach off a South African coast. Horrified onlookers alerted the authorities after spotting the man being mauled by the beast at Sanctuary Beach in Plettenberg Bay. 1The shark attack happened in Plettenberg BayCredit: Getty The National Sea Rescue said it launched two rescue crafts. NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon said: "On arrival at the scene, the body of an adult male, believed to be a local, was recovered from the water from the back surf line onto an NSRI rescue craft. "The body was brought to the NSRI Plettenberg Bay rescue station. A NSRI doctor, Western Cape EMS and the South African Police Services responded." Lambinon said that the Bitou Municipality has closed beaches in the area following the incident. "Sadly, the injuries sustained were fatal and the man was declared deceased by the doctor. Condolences are conveyed to the family of the deceased man. "The NSRi and Bitou Municipality are appealing to sea users, bathes, sailors, paddlers and boaters in Plettenberg Bay and also on the...

Growing up in this country, Foram Mehta was bullied when she got henna designs, or mehndi, painted on her hands at Indian-American community celebrations. “Henna was not a thing people understood, so people found it weird, especially kids,” said Mehta, a content creator who grew up in Texas and until recently lived in San Francisco. “A handful of years later, celebrities are wearing mehndi.” The Bay Area, Mehta’s second home, is home to a vibrant South Asian community. Since 2010, the population of people of Indian descent in San Francisco has doubled, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. As the South Asian community grows, elements of its culture like mehndi and yoga have become trendy, resulting in debates over what showing respect for a culture looks like, versus just taking advantage of it. For Foram Mehta, some outside South Asian culture are...

Students in the program report and photograph stories under the guidance of professional journalists. If you were to visit Anderson Reservoir in Morgan Hill, there would be nothing but a dried-up gorge, with bleached stones to show old water levels. While the empty lake is attributed to its dam’s 10-year restoration program, future water levels post-construction may remain dangerously low due to the drought. This could be the future of many nearby water sources. With this year’s drought looming over the western and southwestern United States, lower water output from local, state and federal reservoirs has put the agricultural industry and farmers at risk. California’s major reservoirs, Lakes Shasta and Oroville, are currently under 50% maximum capacity, which has reduced harvests.

    MILPITAS, Calif. (KGO) -- Bus operators with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) say they're feeling targeted. The transit agency described recent attacks on bus drivers as unrelenting.The agency told ABC7 News, there have been at least 14 attacks on VTA bus operators in the last four months alone."It's been a very disappointing time for the community and for operators," VTA Deputy Director of Bus Operations, Lisa Vickery said.

    Sylvia Arenas has taken an early lead in the race to succeed termed-out Santa Clara County Supervisor Mike Wasserman while on the Peninsula, Charles Stone and Ray Mueller have emerged as the top vote-getters for two seats on San Mateo County’s Board of Supervisors, according to early election results. With 15.7 percent of the 158,048 expected votes counted, Arenas was leading Johnny Khamis by a narrow margin. In the San Mateo County race, Stone and Noelia Corzo were neck to neck for the District 2 seat while Mueller was slightly ahead of Laura Parmer-Lohan for the District 3 seat. Meanwhile, San Mateo County Sheriff candidate Cristine Corpus was holding a slight lead over incumbent Carlos Bolanos. In the Santa Clara County’s District Attorney’s race, incumbent Jeff Rosen was well ahead of challengers Sajid Khan and Daniel Chung. Santa Clara County Assessor Larry Stone was handily beating his only opponent, Andrew Crockett. To win outright in those races and avoid a runoff, a candidate must collect more than 50% of the vote.

    SAN JOSE — Santa Clara County is in good shape to withstand a potential economic downturn that looms for the United States, but still faces plenty of hazards, including the widening threat of inflation, according to a top analyst. The assessments were offered by Christopher Thornberg, co-founder and economist with Beacon Economics, during a recent presentation at a forum hosted by San Jose State University recently and in an interview with this news organization after the event. The U.S. faces a reckoning that might be brutal due to the ongoing jolts from sky-high prices fueled by a lengthy bout of inflation that has battered consumers and chewed up their pocketbooks, some economic experts say. “I am very worried about the economy,” Thornberg told the economic forum during his presentation. The U.S. government and the Federal Reserve — the nation’s Central Bank — have pumped record amounts of money into the economy in a quest to ease the economic effects unleashed by government-ordered business shutdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus. “The government has overheated the economy,” Thornberg said.

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Going to court can be intimidating, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the protocols and procedures. A group of South Bay judges is trying to change that with a video in which they share their personal sides without compromising their professionalism.The 16 minute video is unusual because it shows judges revealing who they are beyond the trappings of the bench and their judicial robes.

    CLOVIS – The bar is always set high at the California Interscholastic Federation state track and field championships, with the 102nd rendition held this weekend after a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic. Two Bay Area girls raised that bar Saturday at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium in Clovis as Los Gatos high jumper Hannah Slover and Dublin pole vaulter Jathiyah Muhammad returned home as newly-crowned state champions. “I was really overwhelmed and proud of myself for coming out here today and doing what I set my mind to,” said Slover, a junior. Muhammad was practically speechless. “I wasn’t expecting this,” the sophomore said. “I don’t even know how to explain it. It’s an amazing feeling.” Slover cleared the bar at 5 feet, 6 inches on her first attempt. Two other girls also matched the height but were unsuccessful on their initial try – including California senior Mara Lampsas, who finished tied for second. Slover, whose personal record is 5-8, came up clutch at the right time. “Being able to stay focused on the very first jump and make it happen, the...
    Click here for a complete list of our election recommendations. Voters won’t be selecting a president this year, but the June 7 primary election will shape Bay Area politics for years to come. The people voters elect as their local political leaders matter. They will decide how we address such critical issues as homelessness, affordable housing, climate change and public safety. Here are what we see as the three most important decisions facing South Bay voters: Mahan for S.J. mayor Councilman Matt Mahan is the clear choice for voters in the San Jose mayor’s race. It’s hard to overstate how important it is to elect someone who would successfully lead San Jose’s efforts to meet its homelessness, housing and public safety challenges. The next mayor won’t have the luxury of simply throwing money at those issues. San Jose’s poor jobs-to-housing ratio limits its budget options. The next mayor will need to bring creativity and fiscal responsibility to the job. This is where Mahan shines. He is the only candidate advocating for greater accountability at City Hall on San Jose’s...
    SAN JOSE – A foursome of South Bay residents has been charged with trafficking drugs, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. On Thursday, Victor Nevarez, 49, and Juan Rivera Arzate, 38, both of San Jose, were arraigned in connection with an indictment charging them with engaging in a conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine from Dec. 13, 2020, to March 8, the office said in a news release Friday. Drug Enforcement Administration agents reportedly recovered more than 22 pounds of methamphetamine, thousands of dollars and a pistol. Pedro Gaona Salse, 28, of San Jose, was also arrested and arraigned Thursday on a complaint charging him with possession with intent to distribute fentanyl. While executing a search warrant at Gaona’s home, DEA agents found more than 2.8 ounces of a substance believed to be fentanyl in a bathroom and a pistol, according to the office. In a separate complaint filed Thursday, Adhemar Castaneda Becerril, 26, of Gilroy, was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, distribute or dispense methamphetamine. At Castaneda’s home, DEA agents reportedly found a saucer pan in a laundry room...

After that we'll follow with building 1b eight to nine months later, and after that North Park will finish out. So, it's probably about two and a half years total before we're all the way through the North Park part of the site," said Eric Johnson, President of Jerico Development.One of the big attractions in the L.A. Waterfront will be the amphitheater which will allow 6,200 spectators. There will be an 80,000 square foot terrace lawn."We think it's kind of maybe filling the doughnut hole in the entertainment space that is the South Bay. Having grown...
    LOS ALTOS – A South Bay piano teacher has been arrested on suspicion of touching a teenage student in an “inappropriate sexual manner,” according to authorities.

    SAN JOSE — An Arizona woman has been criminally charged with lying about her credentials and using stolen identities to work as a dental hygienist in the South Bay for at least five years, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. Elizabeth “Mina” Larijani, 50, is charged with multiple felonies on allegations she lied about being a state-licensed dental hygienist between 2015 and 2020. According to prosecutors, she either worked at or applied to more than 10 dental offices in San Jose and Campbell. Larijani — who also goes by Elizabeth Garcia Costilla — was arrested in Glendale, Arizona and extradited to San Jose last week. She was initially in jail custody on $40,000 bail before she was released Monday and ordered to return to court June 13. The state dental board began investigating Larijani in 2020 after getting reports that she was misrepresenting her licensing and qualifications, and that in several instances used the identity of a licensed dental hygienist. Authorities further allege that whenever the issue of licensing came up, she left one practice and went...
    Local and state elected officials from 13 Santa Clara County communities that receive green energy from Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) gathered at the Cupertino Earth and Arbor Day Festival April 23 to commemorate a sustainability milestone. SVCE, a Sunnyvale-based nonprofit, started providing green energy to local municipalities five years ago. “I am proud of the emissions reductions Campbell, and all SVCE communities, have accomplished in the past five years,” said Campbell City Councilmember and SVCE Board Chair Liz Gibbons. “Having joined SVCE as a founding board member, it is inspiring to see the climate actions that have spread from adopting a locally controlled clean energy agency to creating demand for building new renewable energy projects in the state, all the while controlling customer electric power rates and coordinating agency-wide implementation of building electrification codes, as well as providing scholarships and grants for youth.” SVCE was formed as a Joint Powers Agency in 2016 by local jurisdictions and began service in 2017, and now provides carbon-free electricity to more than 270,000 residential and commercial customers. Since then, SVCE staff says...

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — The debate over whether a ‘tripping’ incident caught on video was accidental or deliberate is heating up the South Bay race for district attorney. Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen is being accused of intentionally tripping a candidate after a heated debate. Rosen’s campaign insists it was nothing but an “accidental bump.” READ MORE: Report: Draft Opinion Suggests High Court Could Overturn RoeMoments after wrapping up a debate Friday night, District Attorney candidate Daniel Chung reached over to shake DA Jeff Rosen’s hand. It’s unclear whether Rosen intentionally sticks out his leg to trip Chung, his former deputy prosecutor. “Respect, civility, basic professionalism, and courtesy were not extended. The live audience, the recorded audience, and everybody now is seeing it,” said Chung. Sajid Khan is a Santa Clara County public defender, who saw it all unfold. “It was startling to see. It shows he’s not fit to be our district attorney in this county,” said Khan. In the video, Khan can be heard asking Rosen, “did you just trip Daniel?” Rosen...

    SANTA CLARA CO., Calif. (KGO) -- Flying over the sweeping green hills, Coyote Valley can seem a world away from the urban core of Santa Clara County. But when it comes to water, it's connected in ways that are becoming increasingly important in the face of drought and climate change."Absolutely. Coyote Valley is a great model for what can be done around the state," says Marc Landgraf of the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority.The Santa Clara County Open Space Authority helped secure land in the northern part of the valley for restoration. Landgraf says the area is a key resource for both natural flood control, and recharging the area's critical groundwater aquifers, which connect to basins in the Santa Clara Valley. The watershed gathers at the valley's low point, Laguna Seca, during the rainy season."Which allows floodwaters to spread during big storm events. That also allows recharge of the aquifer that connects to the water source for the two million people here in the South Bay," he explains.The surrounding area has been at the center of a long running...
    Kayvon Kordestani describes the characters she plays in South Bay Musical Theatre’s upcoming production of “On the Town” as being “on the D track.” “I play three different characters whose names all begin with the letter D, but they’re intended to be the same person.” Voice teacher Madame Dilly is “always a little sauced up,” says Kordestani, while Diane Dream and Dolores Dolores are singers at different nightclubs visited by the show’s three sailors on shore leave in New York City. “I sing the same song poorly in both clubs,” Kordestani says. “On the Town” is Kordestani’s first show since the pandemic began. While she makes more money choreographing shows for South Bay theater companies, Kordestani is focusing on performing post-pandemic. “I wanna make sure I get my caboose on stage,” she says. “My chorus cutie days are numbered.” Kordestani grew up about a mile away from the Saratoga Civic Theater, where South Bay Musical Theatre performs. While she now lives in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood, she moved back in with her parents during the pandemic to help care...

    Talk to anyone who’s swum in San Francisco Bay, and you’ll inevitably get a story that’s meant to sound lighthearted but actually sounds rather petrifying. “There was a dredger in the Bay close to the shore that swirled up all these bottom-feeding fish. My friend said, ‘Something hurt my calf!’” says Conny Bleul, an open-water swimmer from Berkeley. “When she came back, her calf was bleeding, and she went to emergency. Luckily the doctor was also a diver, so he looked at the bite marks and figured out it was a ‘monkeyface prickleback.'” “I was halfway across and a shadow just zipped right underneath me, and that was terrifying. It zipped underneath me again and it was like, ‘I’m getting out of the water because I don’t want to be somebody’s buffet breakfast,'” says Gary Emich, a Pacifica retiree who’s swum from Alcatraz to San Francisco, Marin, Treasure Island and other landing points a staggering 1,065 times. “Right about then, a little sea-lion pup breached in front of me – it was just being playful and having a good time.”...
    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — Construction has begun on the first phase of the South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project, a first-of-its-kind effort to battle climate change and protect Santa Clara County from coastal flooding and sea level rise. “Let’s be clear, our world is changing. Global temperature increases have destabilized the atmosphere and are leading to impacts that we never thought possible at this stage in time,” said Wade Crowfoot, secretary of California Natural Resources. “We have a grave responsibility to take action with urgency and what you see behind me is an example of that action.” Thursday’s groundbreaking ceremony kicked off work led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to build a four-mile section of levees to block floodwater from inundating hundreds of homes and businesses in the Alviso neighborhood as well as Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center and the San José-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility. When complete, the levee will stand 15 feet tall but will feature a gradual slope to attract wildlife and encourage vegetation growth. “That provides horizontal space that’s usable by species and...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Google announced a multi-billion dollar investment to California Thursday including a major project coming to San Jose.Downtown West will be the newest South Bay Google campus aimed at revitalizing the city."I think this is a different path to redevelopment in our city," Mayor Sam Liccardo said. "It's not lead by the government, it's really a collaboration of private sector investment, the city in support and the entire community."RELATED: SJ approves Google's massive downtown complex, largest single development deal in city historyThe Downtown West project looks to bring new life around the SAP Center with offices, restaurants, entertainment centers and more.Google will create nearly 6,000 construction jobs to build the project. 25,000 more jobs will be available when it is completed with training opportunities so people can fill them.Finally, 4,000 homes will be built, 1,000 of those affordable with rent restriction."I think it's an outstanding example for other companies," Representative Zoe Lofgren said."What we've really come to recognize, particularly through this investment is how a collaboration of private sector investment and the community is really going...
    San Francisco Bay is famous worldwide for the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and many of the tech companies that ring its edges. But increasingly, scientists and political leaders are realizing the bay is more is than a scenic wonder: It’s also an increasingly serious threat to millions of residents and hundreds of billions of dollars of bayfront property — from neighborhoods to freeways to airports — as sea level continues its slow, but relentless rise. On Thursday, state, federal and local leaders broke ground on the latest effort to reduce that risk, kicking off a $545 million project to protect San Jose’s shoreline with the bay against winter flooding and rising sea levels from climate change. The project, led by the Army Corps of Engineers, will construct four miles of engineered earthen and clay levees 15 feet high near Alviso, and restore 2,900 acres of former Cargill industrial salt evaporation ponds back into tidal wetlands for fish and wildlife, which helps slow wave energy in storms. The new levees will replace old dirt berms that are 6 to 10 feet...
