The owners of the property at 2441 Haste St. at Telegraph, scene of a devastating fire in Nov. 2011 that destroyed the five-story Sequoia Apartments, have submitted a proposal to the city of Berkeley to build a new 42-unit, 43,000 sq ft apartment building.

The sins of the fathers are most definitely visited upon the children in Lore, a new World War II drama opening at Landmark’s Shattuck Cinemas on Friday March 1. “Oh, no”, I hear you moan, “not another movie about World War II. Surely its admittedly significant cinematic possibilities have long since been exhausted?”, and on most days I might agree with you. This film, however, offers something genuinely different.
Taking its title not from the word meaning ‘a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group’ but from the first name of its lead character, Lore is the story of five German refugee children traveling light from Bavaria to Hamburg. Their parents arrested by Allied troops (Vati has been a member of the Waffen SS, while Mutti simply appears to be a loyal Nazi), the children are under orders to seek refuge with their grandmother over five hundred miles to the north. … Continue reading »
A man suspected of shooting and killing two Santa Cruz police officers on Tuesday had lived in Berkeley and worked as a barista at Cole Coffee on the Oakland-Berkeley border, according to media reports.
Jeremy Peter Goulet, 35, was shot and killed by police not long after two officers were killed at a house in Santa Cruz while answering a call, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel confirmed Wednesday that the officers were killed while trying to arrest a suspect; Vogel identified them as Detective Sgt. Loran Baker and Detective Elizabeth Butler. The officers were answering a call at an address about a mile northeast of downtown at around 3:30 p.m. when the suspect opened fire.
Records show that Goulet, who had moved to Santa Cruz in September, was listed as having been a resident at an apartment complex on Benvenue Ave. near Derby St. in the Elmwood neighborhood of Berkeley. He appears to have been arrested last Friday, Feb. 22, in Santa Cruz on suspicion of drunk and disorderly conduct. … Continue reading »
Know where this is? Take a guess and let us know in the Comments.
Update, 4:26 p.m.: This was a particularly difficult one for all you experts out there and took two days of guesses and one big clue. But eventually MeeToo got it, by doing some sleuthing on Google Maps! This bird is on a garage at 1406 Hawthorne Terrace, just below Euclid. Congratulations, MeeToo, on being this week’s winner!
