Committee to vote on plastic bag ban at stores 

A Board of Supervisors committee votes Thursday on legislation that would prohibit the use of plastic bags by large grocery stores and stores of more than 5,000 square feet with a pharmacy.

The bill would require the stores to only use bags made of recyclable paper, plastic bags that can be broken down into compost or reusable canvas and durable plastic bags.

The committee meets Thursday, at 1 p.m., at City Hall, Room 263.

Final vote scheduled for ban on food trucks near schools

Supervisors will take a final vote on legislation prohibiting food trucks from staging within 1,500 feet of public middle and high schools.

San Francisco Unified School District officials and concerned parents of students say the trucks park within sight of the campuses tempting the students to buy junk foods, like soda and candy.

The Board of Supervisors meets today, at 2 p.m., at City Hall, Room 250.

Inspectors see link between death, naked woman

Homicide inspectors are looking into the mysterious death of a transgender 30-year-old person who was found early Friday morning near Interstate 280 in Potrero Hill.

The identity of the victim, who was found naked on the sidewalk near the intersection of Cesar Chavez and Indiana streets around 5:40 a.m., is still unknown and investigators are calling on a possible witness to come forward.

Around 8 a.m., witnesses saw a white female around 25 years old get into a blue metallic car near the southbound U.S. Highway 101 onramp at Cesar Chavez Street.

The woman was also naked, and police believe she may have a connection to the victim. Police are not calling the death a homicide as of yet and they are uncertain whether the two individuals are related.
