Alleged MS-13 gang member and triple murderer Edwin Ramos told his jailers he was affiliated with the gang and worried about retribution, the deputies testified in court Tuesday.
Nearly two decades in the making, a massive plan to redevelop Treasure Island was unanimously approved Tuesday amid concerns over traffic impacts and the loss of hundreds of below-market rate units.
The same could be said of city officials who, in the space of a few hours, approved two developments that will provide millions in tax revenue and thousands of jobs to San Francisco in the coming years. The $1.5 billion Treasure Island project is expected to make room for nearly 20,000 residents, finally giving life to a place that has been steeped in potential.

For the first time since 2008, the Stanford baseball team will be playing in the NCAA super regionals beginning Friday, and for much of the team, it will be a new experience in North Carolina. “I’ve always felt if you’re going to be successful in league play or postseason play or even the College World Series, you better have someone that’s been there before because it’s different,” Stanford coach Mark Marquess said. “That senior leadership is critical if you wanted to be successful when you go into something new. “Freshmen eyes are really big, they don’t know what to expect.” Seniors Zach Jones, Danny Sandbrink and Ben Clowe were all on the 2008 Stanford team that advanced not only to the super regionals, but to the College World Series, and their experiences should help the Cardinal mentally prepare.

Alameda’s so-called public servants who watched a suicidal man drown on Memorial Day should all be brought up on charges. I can only imagine there would have been a rescue attempt if it was a whale offshore in 4 feet of water instead of a human. Since they failed in human decency to at least walk up to the man in chest-high water, isn’t there a good Samaritan law? Straight, gay, short, small, fat or tall — at least an attempt should have been made to serve and protect a human life!
