The air show will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday over San Francisco Bay, between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz .
Without congressional approval of appropriation bills that finance government operations, many federal functions would have shut down with the start of a new fiscal year on Sunday.
San Francisco Fleet Week, the annual series of events that celebrate the nation's armed forces, was scaled back in 2013 when another government shutdown forced the precision flight demonstration team to cancel its appearance.
One person was killed and another injured while fleeing police when their vehicle crashed in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood, San Francisco police said Saturday.
The vehicle, which was wanted in connection with an armed robbery and auto burglaries, was spotted about 4:04 p.m. by officers assigned to the Tenderloin Station, police said.
The vehicle fled before officers could stop it and they gave chase, police said.
The pursuit ended when the vehicle struck a fixed object at San Bruno Avenue and Mansell Street near the Paul Street off-ramp of U.S. Highway 101, police said.
An 18-year-old on pretrial release after a police chase and firearms arrest was taken into custody Saturday with a loaded handgun in his vehicle, Santa Rosa police said.
Anthony Hernandez of Santa Rosa and a 16-year-old passenger were stopped by police about 6:34 p.m. on Sunset Avenue, police said.
Officers recognized Hernandez and conducted a traffic stop to determine if he was complying with the terms of his release a month ago, police said.
A loaded .40-caliber pistol was found under the passenger seat of the vehicle, police said.
The value of crops grown in Santa Cruz County increased 1.5 percent in 2022, compared with 3.4 percent the previous year, according to the annual county agriculture report.
The total gross production value of Santa Cruz-grown commodities rose to $667 million from $657 million in 2021, and $636 million in 2020.
Weather, labor and the marketplace are all factors in gross production yield and value, according to the Santa Cruz County Agricultural Commissioner's office. The 2022 figures do not reflect losses from 2023 winter storms.
About $6 of every $10 in gross economic activity came from strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, the office said Friday. Strawberries led the pack at $220 million, up 4.2 percent.
Caltrans reopened state Highway 12 at Hooker Creek near Agua Caliente in Sonoma County on Saturday after a new bridge was completed five days ahead of schedule.
A section of the highway was closed Sept. 5 so crews could demolish a concrete arch bridge built in 1900 and replace it with steel. Traffic was detoured on county roads to bypass the construction.
Caltrans replaced the bridge because of problems with "scour," a process where fast-flowing water whirlpools around the bridge columns and erodes the creek bed.
Santa Rosa will receive $2.9 million in a National Parks Service grant for the new Kawana Springs Park, U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson said Saturday.
The grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund will help the city develop the19.2-acre park located in southeast Santa Rosa at Kawana Terrace and Meda Avenue.
The project will construct a fitness course along a loop trail, half basketball court, sand volleyball court, bicycle pumptrack, dog park, bocce court and other features, according to Thompson's office.
Oakland public school student interns will begin fixing or replacing school-issued Chromebooks in need of repair at three high school hubs starting Monday, the Oakland Unified School District said.
The first 25,000 Chromebooks were ordered by the OaklandUndivided Campaign in 2020 to help close the digital divide.
Students in the OUSD Tech Repair Internship will accept the Chromebooks at Fremont, McClymonds and Oakland high schools, the district said Friday. The process takes about a week.
A new study released exclusively to EdSource from The Century Foundation found Californians have higher average student debt balances, risky graduate school debt, a unique reliance on parent-held debt and significantly high student debt among Black families.
California's high cost of living makes debt inevitable for many students, but the risk is greater for students from lower-income families and communities of color eager to use education as a ladder into the middle class. Open-ended loans aimed at parents and graduate students are particularly burdensome, including those used to attend for-profit colleges.
Despite having a smaller share of student loan borrowers when compared with other states, California's borrowers are in the top third among states, with an average of $37,400 owed, according to national data from June 2022. That figure includes all borrowers, regardless of whether they attended college in California. The state ranks 16th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia for borrowers with high balances. This is despite having the fourth-lowest rate of student borrowers.
The National Weather Service forecast for the greater San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday calls for sunny skies, with patchy fog in the morning for parts of North Bay.
Daytime highs are expected to be in the 60s on the coast, and in the 70s around the bay and inland.
Overnight lows should be in the 50s throughout the Bay Area. Parts of the coast will experience patchy fog between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Monday.
Seasonably cool temperatures continue as an area of low pressure exits east of the region. Forecasters say an area of high pressure will develop starting Monday and continue through much of the week.
