    PALO ALTO – A 26-year-old San Francisco man has been arrested in connection with a carjacking in downtown Palo Alto, police said.

    PALO ALTO (KPIX) — As Bay Area law enforcement agencies continue to investigate numerous high-profile smash-and-grab retail burglaries, detectives from two departments separated by about 50 miles seem to have found links between two of the incidents. On Sunday, just after 9:00 p.m., a group of around 40 people smashed the front window and burglarized The RealReal in Larkspur, according to Central Marin police. The suspects were able to get into the consignment shop, where they stole approximately $250,000 worth of merchandise. Later Sunday, just past 11:15 p.m., a group of around 30-40 people in about 20 vehicles attempted to break into The RealReal in downtown Palo Alto, according to Palo Alto police.

    DEAR JOAN: I was saddened to notice that I accidentally injured a praying mantis while raking leaves yesterday. He was alert and walking, but his tail was tucked under slightly. He would not fly and had trouble climbing the fence. Torn, I decided to wait and see if he would recover from the shock of it all. Could you please advise me, if I see the mantis again, would it be kinder to catch it and kill it? Maybe he could survive fine even if injured. We have a mostly safe (except for me) wild yard with a lot of pesticide-free plants and insects. Kathy, Palo Alto DEAR KATHY: You have such a tender heart. Contrary to the long-held believe that insects don’t feel pain, they do. Researchers have confirmed that insects can experience different levels of pain, from mild to severe, and can become sensitive to their injured bodies. That doesn’t mean, however, that you caused great physical harm to the creature. It might have just been a little stunned by the raking, or you might have uncovered one...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Pavement conditions on the Bay Area’s 44,000 miles of roads continue to be in “fair” condition, with the typical road showing significant wear, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Data released by the agency on Tuesday showed the region’s pavement condition index (PCI) was at 67 out of 100 points for the fifth straight year. READ MORE: UPDATE: All Westbound Lanes of I-80 Near Richmond Reopen After Collision Overturns Two CarsAccording to the agency, a PCI in the 60s means the road is in fair condition and has become “worn to the point where rehabilitation may be needed to prevent rapid deterioration.” The score is particularly critical since major repairs typically cost five to 10 times more than routine maintenance, officials said. “Some of the pavement work scheduled for last year was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said MTC Chair and Napa County Supervisor Alfredo Pedroza. “But the new scores illustrate how big a challenge it is to bring our roads — not just in Napa County but all around the Bay Area — to...
    PALO ALTO – Prosecutors have charged three Palo Alto animal shelter employees with animal cruelty and neglect in connection with the deaths of seven puppies earlier this year. The Pets In Need Palo Alto Animal Shelter employees – identified by police as a 36-year-old Fremont woman, a 40-year-old East Palo Alto woman and a 45-year-old San Carlos woman – drove to the Central Valley on Aug. 2 to retrieve extra animals other shelters could either not accommodate or had been unsuccessful in adopting out, Palo Alto police Acting Capt. James Reifschneider said in a news release. Reifschneider said such trips were routine and the employees on this one picked up a total of 27 dogs, including seven Labrador-pit bull puppies. The puppies were from the same litter, roughly three to four months old and about nine pounds each. The animal shelter’s 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van lacked air-conditioning in the cargo hold and the employees did not provide water to the dogs during transport, Reifschneider said. Temperatures that afternoon in the Central Valley, he added, topped 100 degrees. According to the employees,...

    Crescent Park, the epitome of the quintessential Palo Alto lifestyle, offers a sophisticated urban-suburban mix, providing fortunate residents the best of both worlds. This approximately 2,374-square-foot home sits on an exceptional almost 8,900-square-foot property and includes up to four bedrooms and three bathrooms.  Discover something special the minute you walk up to the lovely porch and bright blue door at 1342 Dana Avenue.

    PALO ALTO — Tesla has agreed to lease a big chunk of office space in Palo Alto, a distinct counterpoint to the company’s revelation this week that it would shift its corporate headquarters from Silicon Valley to Texas. The electric vehicle maker has struck a deal to lease 325,000 square feet at 1501 Page Mill Road in Palo Alto, part of an office complex in Stanford Research Park, according to five sources with knowledge of the deal. Earlier this week, Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive officer, told company shareholders that the maker of electric vehicles would be moving its corporate headquarters to Texas in an exit of the administrative offices from Palo Alto. The office space that Tesla is leasing in Palo Alto is owned by Hewlett Packard. The land beneath the building is leased by H-P from Stanford University, a customary property arrangement in Stanford Research Park. Tesla’s lease deal in Palo Alto serves as a reminder that companies are continuing to expand in the Bay Area, even if, in some cases, they move their headquarters out of this...

    Michelin giveth. Michelin taketh away. And once in a while, Michelin giveth back. Adega — which in 2016 became the first restaurant in San Jose to earn a prestigious Michelin star, only to lose it two years later — has again been honored for culinary excellence. The 2021 Michelin Guide California, published today, awarded one star to the upscale, family-owned restaurant in the city’s Little Portugal neighborhood, making it the only Portuguese restaurant in the western United States to hold that status. “This was even more joyful than the first time,” co-owner Carlos Carreira said, because the priority for him, wife/co-owner Fernanda and the kitchen staff has not been on industry accolades but on keeping their Alum Rock Avenue restaurant and two others afloat in the challenging COVID-19 business climate. “It was the last thing on our minds to be recognized. We were just trying to not go out of business.” Instead, this week they will toast the Michelin inspectors’ findings that “chefs David Costa and Jessica Carreira elevate every bite on their appetizing menu with a perfect blend of pristine...
    PALO ALTO (CBS SF) – Police in Palo Alto have launched a hate crime investigation after racist graffiti was found in a downtown parking garage for the second time in as many weeks. Around 5:30 p.m. on Friday, a passerby called police about the graffiti, which was spotted in the second floor of the garage located on 528 High Street. The graffiti, which was drawn in black marker, included a racial epithet directed at Black people and an anti-Jewish symbol. After officers arrived, a public works crew was called to remove the writings. Police said they were not sure when the graffiti was drawn but it occurred after a similar incident at the same garage earlier this month. On September 15, police were notified when an offensive message directed towards Black people was written on a concrete pillar. Investigators said it is possible that the same person was responsible for the crimes, but a suspect has yet to be identified. Police are also investigating multiple incidents of hateful graffiti found at El Camino Park that have taken place since May....

Officials with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said employees at a remote property near the fire’s origin reported a woman trespassing and “acting irrationally” in the area early Wednesday.

A subsequent interview by Cal...

    People who study insects have been abuzz lately following a most unlikely discovery – and the amateur entomologist who made it. A 4-year-old girl with a knack for nature found two colonies of rare stingless bees, creatures that scientists thought were long gone and that no adult had managed to notice. Annika Arnout's command of nature is confounding to many adults, thanks in large part to biologist Targe Lindsey. He's her caregiver, brought in by her parents when she was 3 months old so Annika could explore nature in her Palo Alto, California, neighborhood. But this year, Annika – a seasoned naturalist by now – found tiny bugs that were not just any bugs. Her discovery found its way to California's Department of Food and Agriculture Plant Pest Diagnostics Branch, where Dr. Martin Hauser is a senior insect biosystematist. The bugs Annika found are stingless bees that aren't supposed to be here – they live in Brazil and are much smaller than the average honey bee. Annika found the insects in an undisclosed location, which she wouldn't divulge in...

    Five years after opening in the Bay Area, the trendsetting Lemonade restaurant group has closed its locations in Palo Alto and Walnut Creek. That leaves San Francisco as the only option for South Bay and East Bay residents who had become fans of the eatery’s seasonal salads and creative lemonades. Lemonade, which has described itself as “part lemonade stand, part grade-school cafeteria,” drew raves for its fast-casual concept that showcases contemporary veggie-centric dishes, farm-to-table salads and sandwiches. The current menu, for example, offers a Peach and Tomato Caprese Sandwich, Summer Vegetable Gemelli and a Fennel Crunch salad. Signature lemonades come in flavors like Blood Orange Hibiscus, Raspberry Mint and Caramelized Pineapple. A Bay Area representative of Lemonade confirmed the closings but was not able to provide details; the locations are no longer listed on the website. Queries to the restaurant’s corporate team went unanswered.

    PALO ALTO — A sushi restaurant owner has become the latest anti-Asian American hate victim after she was berated by a customer who lost his temper when told the restaurant would not accept cash payments because of the pandemic. During dinner service at Fuki Sushi on Aug. 1, a customer in his 50s began yelling at his server after she informed him the restaurant would only be taking contactless payments, owner Lumi Gardner said in an interview. Gardner said when the customer was told he couldn’t pay cash, he repeatedly yelled “this is un-American, it’s illegal for you to not accept cash.” His server, startled by the outburst, referred him to Gardner, who said she would happily accept cash to “avoid a possibly dangerous situation.” The man still wasn’t appeased and began a racist tirade against her that she shared on a Facebook post following the incident, Gardner said. “I don’t understand you,” the man yelled when she talked through a mask. “You are un-American.

    PALO ALTO — The father of a rising senior at Palo Alto High School has sued the school district after his son was denied entry to a summer history class for not wearing a mask. According to a lawsuit filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court earlier this month by the student’s father,  A.J. Gokcek, his son — referred to as T.G. — had registered for a two-and-a-half week summer school credit recovery course in history beginning July 6 and ending July 23. When he showed up for his first day of school without a mask, the lawsuit says T.G. was told by his teacher to go to the principal’s office. According to Gokcek, his son “cannot wear a mask safely” and wearing one could prevent him from being able to participate in class based on a speech and communication disability. Because he did not comply with mask-wearing rules, T.G. was withdrawn from the recovery history course after three days of missed classes, which Gokcek contends is a violation of the school’s statutory commitment to teaching all children.
