Steph Curry leaves game with foot injury


News you don't want to miss for April 10:

Alameda voters registered a decisive victory in support of a homeless senior wellness center and medical respite services in a divisive ballot measure showdown, the East Bay Citizen reports, that pitted the city's most vulnerable communities against neighbors of the proposed center on McKay Avenue, near Crab Cove.

2. The Bay Area Council released a comprehensive regional report on the dire state of homelessness in the Bay Area, along with solutions, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. $$

3. Some housing activists will contend one solution for alleviating the homelessness problem is to build more affordable housing.

4. Oakland Animal Services says someone in the Lower Dimond District is shooting cats with pellet guns. In the past five weeks, the San Francisco Chronicle reports, four cats have been treated for injuries. $$

5. No collusion! Two Berkeley High students running for student body president and vice-president attempted to rig their election, Berkeleyside reports.

6. Stephen Curry left the regular season's penultimate game with a foot injury, putting a scare into Warriors fans everywhere. He should be back for the first game of the playoffs. The San Francisco Chronicle's Bruce Jenkins asks, with the number one seed already in hand, why was Curry even playing Tuesday night? $$
