Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people that would drive them to brawl during a college football game? People are at the game to have a few beers with the boys, enjoy some time with their friends and support their squad. They’re not out there so they can get punched in the face. And now another massive fight with at least 15-20 individuals. Looks like Boise fans involved too — David Suarez (@DavidSuarez) November 7, 2021 I...

    The sky-high rents in the Bay Area and Los Angeles garner most of the attention in debates about California’s housing affordability woes. But few places in the country have seen such dramatic growth in what it costs to rent an apartment as Fresno, the state’s fifth-largest city. The monthly rent for an average apartment in Fresno has gone up nearly 60% since 2017 to $1,469. Fresno’s median home value has risen almost as much over the same time and is now $331,000. On this episode of “Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast,” we discuss what is causing the housing frenzy in Fresno. Unlike other big cities around the state, Fresno’s population is growing. New investors are snapping up small apartment complexes in central areas and raising rents. And it’s become very hard for residents in the region, which is one of the poorest in the state, to keep up. Our guest is Jovana Morales-Tilgren, a housing policy coordinator with Leadership Counsel for Justice & Accountability, a nonprofit that advocates for low-income tenants in the Central Valley. Gimme Shelter:...
    California officially has the lowest coronavirus case rate of any state, federal figures show, underscoring the progress made in the ongoing battle against the highly infectious Delta variant. The state has been among the national leaders in that metric for the last week, as the number of newly confirmed coronavirus infections continues to tumble from a peak earlier this summer. California’s new case rate per 100,000 people is less than half of neighboring states, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some hard-hit states have more than triple California’s numbers. California California coronavirus cases dropping, CDC says California’s coronavirus transmission level has fallen from ‘high’ to ‘substantial,’ the second-highest tier as defined by the CDC. Statewide As of Sunday, California’s seven-day case rate was 109.6 per 100,000 people. The next-closest state was Maryland, at 143.4. The comparable rates over the same period were 386.2 cases per 100,000 people in Texas; 355.9 in Florida; 308.6 in Oregon; 266.3 in Nevada; and 262.7 in Arizona, federal data show. Last week, the...
    SAN FRANCISCO —  California is opening temporary field hospitals to help with overflow patients as COVID-19 surges fill intensive care units across the state. The field hospitals will care for non-ICU patients in places such as Costa Mesa, Porterville, Sacramento and Imperial; other facilities are on standby status in Riverside, Richmond, Fresno, San Diego and San Francisco. On Tuesday, the California Department of Public Health said available ICU capacity in Southern California was just 1.7%, down from 2.7% a day earlier. The situation was particularly grim in Riverside County, which was at zero available ICU capacity as of Tuesday. Available ICU capacity in the San Joaquin Valley was also effectively maxed out and has been fluctuating between zero and 1.6% since Saturday. Medical authorities across the state expect the situation to worsen before it gets better, as more people infected during the Thanksgiving holiday fall ill. The hope is that the state stay-at-home order will eventually turn the tide, but it’s expected it will take until Christmas or New Year’s before the inexorable rise in daily coronavirus cases flattens or...
    San Jose State hasn’t been a stranger to navigating the unique circumstances of playing college football during the COVID-19 pandemic, and last weekend, the program had its latest dose of reality. The Valley Bowl, San Jose State and Fresno State’s rivalry game set for last weekend, was canceled due to COVID-19 contact tracing within Fresno State’s program. The game was declared no contest and will not be rescheduled. “I wish we had a game to talk about at Fresno, but we don’t and that’s kind of the way of the world right now,” said coach Brent Brennan. “COVID is impacting everyone’s lives in one way or another, and for us, it’s in losing an opponent.” Aside from the history between the two programs — San Jose State and Fresno State have played one another 83 times since 1921 — this year’s Valley Bowl was significant because of bowl implications. San Jose State and Fresno State, which have a combined 7-1 record, currently rank second and third in the Mountain West’s West Division. On Sunday, the Mountain...
    The San Jose State football team, boasting a 4-0 record for the first time in 65 years, is about to hit the big time. The Spartans’ game Saturday at Boise State will be televised by Fox, the first time since 2006 that SJSU has appeared on a non-cable network. It might be even better, and bigger, than that. Longtime SJSU publicist Lawrence Fan was researching whether the Spartans ever have played a nationally televised network game. The game in 2006 was regionally televised, as were all SJSU games dating to 1975. The game will mark the biggest test by far for SJSU. Boise State is 99-26 since joining the Mountain West in 2011 and won the conference championship last season for the second time in three years, The Broncos (4-1 overall, 4-0 in conference) are 14-0 all time against San Jose State. Boise State has been installed as an 11-point favorite.

    The Fresno County district attorney condemned Gov. Gavin Newsom's changes to the state's bail policies amid COVID-19, in light of a recent crime spike. Newsom, who has made efforts to reform California's criminal justice system while in office, initiated the release of thousands of nonviolent state inmates starting in April and announced in September that he would be closing a state prison next year. But locals say some of the prisoners who have been released, including some with mental illnesses, are violent.

Newsom ... claims that declining prison populations is the reason why he's doing this, and he applauds himself and criminal justice reformers for bringing the numbers down. While I'm not an opponent of criminal justice reform, I am an opponent of misinformation and lies,"  Lisa Smittcamp said during a Thursday press conference.

    Local law enforcement officials in San Quentin, California, blamed an increase in violent crime in Fresno County on Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and his progressive bail policies, slamming the state for prioritizing a "political agenda" over the lives of California citizens. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp called on Newsom to stop releasing criminals from prison because of the coronavirus and end zero-dollar bail policies she says are leading to increases in violent crime. "Stop using COVID-19 to promote your political agenda. The blood of the children being shot by out-of-control gang members in our city is on your hands, and on the hands of every person who does not make public safety a priority," Smittcamp said. The press conference took place on the same day that San Quentin Officials weighed a decision to appeal the state's release of more than 1,100 inmates, KMJ reported. On Wednesday, a California appeals court ordered state corrections officials to parole or transfer the inmates serving time in San Quentin State Prison, citing officials'...
