The numbers are in: SF homeless population rose 30% since 2017

San Francisco’s appalling homeless problem seemed to worsen only modestly compared to the rest of the Bay Area when the city released its preliminary homeless-count numbers in May. The first glimpse showed a 17% uptick — not great, sure, but not as bad as Alameda County’s 43% rise. Or Santa Clara’s 31% increase. Turns out the news wasn’t quite so rosy.The final report released Friday, in the middle of a holiday weekend, shows that the street-count increase would actually be 30% if the city had used the same standards for counting as it had in past years. San Francisco now has 9,784 unhoused...

Bill would give Californians a $10,000 tax deduction for college savings

Bill would give Californians a $10,000 tax deduction for college savings

Photo: Paul Chinn / The Chronicle 2010California may be the most-populous state, but its 529 college savings plan is dwarfed by those offered by six states including Nevada, Utah, Maine and New Hampshire.That’s partly because California does not market its plan nationally, and it doesn’t sell it through brokers or advisers who earn a commission. But it’s also because California has never offered residents a state-tax incentive to invest in its plan, called ScholarShare.A bill introduced in the Assembly last month would create one. would let Californians deduct the amount of their annual...

Zodiac Killer case, 50 years later: Tracing the legend of ‘our Jack the Ripper’

Zodiac Killer case, 50 years later: Tracing the legend of ‘our Jack the Ripper’

He is our Jack the Ripper. Fifty years ago this week, a psychopath with a .22-caliber semiautomatic pistol sneaked up on two high school students parked on a windswept lover’s lane in Benicia. Shot down as they scrambled in terror, the young couple died in a spray of gunfire. It was an unusually messy crime scene.The killing on Dec. 20, 1968, of David Faraday, 17, and his 16-year-old date, Betty Lou Jensen, marked the beginning of what became the twisted legend of the Zodiac Killer. By the time he was done, five more victims across the Bay Area would be shot or stabbed — three of them...

California slashes emissions, hits major greenhouse gas goal years early

3In a major win for California’s fight against global warming, the state appears to have hit its first target for cutting greenhouse gases — and it reached the goal early.Data released Wednesday by the California Air Resources Board show that the state’s greenhouse gas emissions — the latest year available — to 429.4 million metric tons.That’s slightly below the 431 million metric tons the state produced in 1990. And California law requires that the state’s emissions, which peaked in 2004, return to 1990 levels by 2020.Since the peak, emissions have dropped 13 percent. The 2008 financial...

Opponents of Oakland A's waterfront ballpark turn to courts to slow the project down

Photo: Courtesy Oakland A’sOpponents of the Oakland A’s waterfront ballpark have filed suit in Alameda County Superior Court seeking to derail the team’s bid for an exemption from state law AB734.An AB734 exemption would mandate that lawsuits challenging the A’s environmental impact report would need to be adjudicated within 270 days, if possible. Without the exemption, legal challenges to the ballpark development could go on for years.Ballpark opponents contend that the large crowds and traffic generated by the 34,000-seat stadium and adjacent hotel, housing and office development will...

SF leaders pleased, homeless activists angered as large tent camps vanish

SF leaders pleased, homeless activists angered as large tent camps vanish

6If it seems like all the big homeless tent camps in San Francisco have suddenly vanished, that’s because it’s true. City officials are delighted, and street activists are livid.The transformation has actually been gradual, as a unified push by teams of street cleaners, police officers and counselors ramped up over the past year and a half to dismantle 30 of the city’s biggest camps. Since the last large camps were removed last week in the southern part of town, none with more than 10 tents has been allowed to spring up.Mayor Mark Farrell inherited the cleanup from the late Ed Lee when he...
