- Stanford alums Christian McCaffrey, Solomon Thomas renew friendship in NFL
By Eric Branch - Thursday Sep 7, 2017
As they have in the past, Solomon Thomas’ parents, Chris and Martha, will sit with Christian McCraffey’s parents, Ed and Lisa, when their sons play a football game in the Bay Area on Sunday. This, however, will be different. Solomon and Christian were once teammates, roommates and tightly bonded buddies with shared goals. On Sunday, Solomon will try to crush Christian. “I do think,” Chris Thomas said, “that it will be odd.” And awkward — although Martha Thomas insisted it won’t get antagonistic with Lisa and Ed, a former NFL wide receiver: “We agreed to cheer for each other’s kid.

- Investigators cannot determine cause in Oakland construction fire
By Kimberly Veklerov - Friday Aug 11, 2017
The cause of a fire that demolished an under-construction complex in Oakland last month cannot be determined, federal investigators said Friday, leaving open the question at the center of a battle over development and displacement in the city.“People were concerned, ‘Was this a pattern?’” said Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney, who represents the area that includes Auto Row, the site of the seven-story Alta Waverly mixed-use building on Valdez Street that was destroyed.“While the investigation has reached a point where an ‘undetermined’ finding is appropriate, investigators will continue to consider any new evidence or information provided by witnesses or community members,” the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said in a statement.Twenty-eight people living in two adjacent buildings, including a couple with a 2-year-old child, haven’t been able to get back into their homes since the fire, according to Michele Byrd, the city’s director of Housing and Community Development.In the other, investigators checking to make sure the units were safe for re-entry found unrelated code violations, said city spokesman Sean Maher.The building that was going to comprise nearly 200 housing units and 31,000 square feet of retail space was more than halfway done at the time of the fire.Soon after the fire, amid concern that builders would halt plans in Oakland, Mayor Libby Schaaf reached out to developers to assure them that the city would work with them to shore up safety measures at their project sites, said Darin Ranelletti, interim director of Oakland’s Planning and Building Department.[...] developers throughout the city have increased lighting at construction sites, added surveillance cameras and taken other steps to secure perimeters, Ranelletti said.
