    After being closed for the past five months due to the coronavirus pandemic, Alcatraz Island — one of Northern California’s top tourist draws — will reopen to the public on Monday, even though the Big House itself will remain padlocked.

In normal times, it receives up to 1.7 million visitors a year. But for now, touring “the Rock” will be an outdoor-only experience, to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

    There were plenty of surprises in store for the 50,000 revelers who flocked to Fisherman's Wharf to see flamboyant California Democrat Willie Brown sworn in as San Francisco's first black mayor.

The press has expected the maverick politician to parade his attractive young girlfriend, Kamala Harris, an ambitious deputy district attorney 31 years Brown's junior and his 'constant companion' on the campaign trail. To their puzzlement, he was instead joined on stage for the 1996 inauguration by his estranged wife Blanche, despite...

If the workers meet the criteria for employees, the company must pay minimum wage and overtime, provide paid sick leave...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, who this week was announced as Joe Biden's vice presidential running mate, has received high-profile criticism from the left for her record as a tough prosecutor -- but Harris also stirred controversy during that period for allegedly going easy on criminal defendants in a number of cases, including by refusing to seek the death penalty for a cop killer. Some of Harris' decisions not to seek punishments to the full extent of the law as the San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general illuminate the complexity of her long prosecutorial record -- there's been much debate over whether she was a "progressive prosecutor" -- and could hint at how she would treat high-profile issues as vice president.

    Sen. Kamala Harris, who dubbed herself California’s “top cop” when she was the state’s attorney general, had a reputation for being tough on crime when she was a prosecutor. “We need in our city to have a district attorney who recognizes her responsibility for making sure the consequences occur for serious and violent crime,” she said in a debate prior to the 2003 San Francisco district attorney election. Harris wouldn’t support legislation that would allow the public to view police disciplinary hearings in 2007 as district attorney and wouldn’t support 2015 legislation when she was attorney general that would’ve required her to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate police deadly force incidents. She said police departments nationwide should be...

    She may tout herself as a “progressive prosecutor,” but Kamala Harris’ record as career California prosecutor suggests otherwise. Harris — who made history Tuesday as presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s pick for vice president — has long faced criticism over her prosecutorial record, with skeptics saying she skewed in favor of police and was too slow, and even sometimes mum, on criminal justice reform. As California’s attorney general from 2011 to 2017, she refused to endorse a 2015 bill calling for a special prosecutor to investigate deadly police shootings, the Sacramento Bee reported. She also rejected calls from civil rights groups to investigate deadly police shootings in Los Angeles and San Francisco, following the 2014 police-involved killing of Michael...

    Almost immediately after Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his pick for vice president, the Trump campaign and his acolytes began casting the California senator as a “far-left radical” set on transforming the U.S. into a socialist’s dream and a suburbanite’s nightmare. At the same time, the most progressive members of the Democratic Party lamented the choice of a former prosecutor as kowtowing to an aging, increasingly irrelevant establishment. “We at Bay Area for Bernie sincerely hope Harris remembers her commitments to her progressive constituents,” the group said in a statement. “If she does not, this ticket will turn away independents and progressives in droves. ” So where does the Oakland-born, Berkeley-bred, former San Francisco DA and...
    Sen. Kamala Harris, who was officially announced as Joe Biden's running mate Tuesday, has switched her stances on multiple issues throughout her time in public life, beginning as a local prosecutor in the early 2000s. Those positions are now back in the spotlight, as the Trump campaign tries to tag her as "phony" and the newly named Democratic ticket prepares to present a united and consistent message going into next week's national convention. CHRIS WALLACE SAYS KAMALA HARRIS 'DOESN'T DO ANY HARM' TO JOE BIDEN'S CHANCES Harris' changes of heart cover issues like whether the government should abolish private health insurance, whether recreational marijuana should be legalized and more. Such switches have invited criticism in the past from both the left and...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., being an opponent against President Trump bodes well for the success of the Trump campaign, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said on Wednesday. “He’s thrilled that Joe Biden has picked somebody who is so radical, so far-left, an extreme San Francisco liberal to run with Joe Biden. It just shows that the Democratic Party has thrown away the moderate wing of their party,” McDaniel told “America’s Newsroom.” McDaniel defended Trump’s attack against Harris, calling her a phony for having a prosecutorial past that is inconsistent with her current message. “She has lurched so far left. That’s what the campaign ad puts forward -- that she’s phony and continuing to evolve in her positions,” McDaniel said,...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to approve the development of a housing project at the Balboa Reservoir site next to San Francisco City College.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The CEO of Uber said Wednesday that the ride-hailing giant may be forced to shut down its California operations if a judge’s injunction that requires drivers to be classified as employees is upheld. Dara Khosrowshahi said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday that Uber’s operations in the state may have to shut down until November. Khosrowshahi’s announcement comes after a ruling by Judge Ethan Schulman of the San Francisco Superior Court earlier this week.

The injunction is part of a lawsuit brought on by the State of California and city...

A crew chief review overturned the call and awarded Duggar a two-run double. Márquez...

Rainbow flags outnumber Stars and Stripes, teenage runaways dance on the grass at Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park, and tech entrepreneurs promise to make the world a better place. Still, it gets hard to stomach a place where the world's finest computer engineers design weed-delivery apps while destitute families live in cars and heroin addicts defecate on...

Reuters reports that in the 34-page decision Schulman said there’s an “overwhelming likelihood” that the state will prove the two companies have illegally misclassified workers, and that they fail the law’s three-step test to determine if workers are employees. He delayed enforcement of the ruling for ten days to allow for appeals, which both companies...

    Drug overdoses in the US are the leading cause of accidental deaths, and accidental deaths are the third-leading cause of death overall in the US - but new research suggests they remain vastly undercounted.  Researchers found that one in six deaths ruled sudden cardiac arrests that happened outside of hospitals in San Francisco were actually caused by overdoses, typically of a cocktail of drugs, usually including opioids.  And because overdose death rates in San Francisco closely mirror rates nationwide, the research team from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is concerned that overdoses across the US are similarly underestimated.  The opioid epidemic, a top public health priority, has nearly been subsumed by urgent efforts to address the coronavirus pandemic...
