Measures initiated by citizens to establish rent control programs appeared headed for victory in Richmond and Mountain View but were losing in Alameda, San Mateo and Burlingame.Citizens in the five Bay Area cities placed initiatives on the ballot to protect tenants from spiraling rents and evictions that have resulted from job growth outstripping housing creation.In Alameda and Mountain View, the city councils placed on the ballot less-stringent measures to temper rent increases.The measures, which all needed a simple majority to pass, aimed to bring urban-style rent and vacancy controls to Bay Area suburbs.Like the Burlingame measure, it generally would have limited rent hikes on pre-1995 multifamily buildings to the CPI increase.The initiative would roll back rents on pre-1995 multifamily units to October 2015 levels and generally limit future increases to the CPI increase.Placed on the ballot by the City Council, the measure would continue a city program that requires mediation on rent increases above 5 percent and limits evictions on all rental property.

NEW YORK (AP) — Two of the Confederate Army's best-known leaders have streets named for them in a place not normally associated with the Southern side of the Civil War — New York City."To honor these men who believed in the ideology of white supremacy and fought to maintain the institution of slavery constitutes a grievous insult to the many thousands of people in Brooklyn who are descendants of the slaves held in bondage," says a letter sent to Army Secretary Robert Speer recently by Reps.Army spokesman Major General Malcolm Frost issued a statement to The Associated Press reiterating the stance that every Army installation is named for a soldier who holds a place in our military history.[...] these historic names represent individuals, not causes or ideologies.In Florida, five people were recently arrested when a city council meeting in Hollywood ended with a clash over three streets named for Confederate generals.
