Blakes on Telegraph, a fixture in Berkeley for 71 years, closed yesterday after the restaurateurs defaulted on their lease. While the restaurant’s website announces the change, phone calls to Blakes are still being answered by a recorded message that encourages callers to check out the schedule of live music on the website.
Berkeley High School weathered another incident with a student carrying a gun today. The student involved in the previous incident on January 10 was finally arrested last night.
Driving around North Berkeley with Natasha Boissier is an educational experience. Where others see a quiet residential area she sees streets lined with potential pickings and delights when she spots prospective bounty or familiar fruit.
NEWS BRIEF: The 15-year-old student who brought a gun to Berkeley High on Jan. 10 was arrested last night in connection with a robbery at Shattuck and Kittredge around 10 p.m. The young man and two other suspects, all under 18, fled the scene of the robbery on foot as the police attempted to detain them. All were caught and arrested. In addition to last night’s robbery, there was a warrant for the 15-year-old, because of the gun as well as an amount of marijuana consistent with dealing at BHS. In the incident on Jan. 10, although the gun was secured by the police school safety officers, the student ran away.
