Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second
  • It’s been a year since the SF Board of Supervisors rejected a 495-unit building proposed on an alley in SoMa due to some technical issues, and that building is coming back for a vote.

  • Convicted murderer Scott Peterson has been transferred from San Quentin’s death row to Mule Creek State Prison east of Sacramento, a year after the California Supreme Court overturned his death sentence due to a jury selection error. And Peterson, 50, now has a new shot. [Associated Press]
  • Ten people and four pets were displaced Monday afternoon by a fire at the Tenderloin Residence Hotel, the Boyd Hotel on Jones Street. [KPIX]
  • City council members in Redwood City approved an emergency ordinance banning gun stores from opening in the city — after two stores applied to open in the mall starting in September. [KTVU]
  • Last night was Diwali, the culmination of the Hindu festival of lights celebrated over the weekend by tens of thousands in the Bay Area at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, Cupertino and elsewhere. [KPIX]
  • Rapid home tests for COVID are likely to be less reliable at detecting the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants, but they will still work if used multiple times throughout the day — and experts also recommend a throat swab. [Chronicle]
  • Two right-wing operatives, including a Southern California man, pleaded guilty Monday to a wire fraud scheme designed to scare Ohio voters ahead of the 2020 election. [Associated Press]
  • Stopovers for migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway, the long route from Alaska to Mexico and South America that many bird species pass through in winter, are much smaller this year because of the drought. [Chronicle]
