Mayor Eric Garcetti, soon to be Biden’s ambassador to India, and Sen. Alex Padilla. “The choice should be absolutely clear,” Biden reiterated. “Gavin Newsom. You have a governor who has the courage to lead.” This marked Biden’s first visit…

49ers mailbag: Will Aiyuk, Sermon escape ‘doghouse’ for Sunday’s visit to Eagles?

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A harrowing, Week 1 win triggered genuine questions from 49ers’ fans. Fortunately, my Instagram and Twitter mail found me on an Ohio highway as I compiled this week’s mailbag en route to the 49ers’ West Virginia encampment this week: Did you see ANYTHING during camp that suggested Trey Sermon wouldn’t be the 1B back? (@SpaceKRUzer) After Sermon had a quiet practice against the Chargers and was a surprise scratch for that Aug. 22 preseason game, the 49ers said he had a mild ankle injury. He wasn’t on the injury report last week, however. Coaches simply were more impressed by Elijah Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty as Raheem Mostert’s Week 1 backups. Mostert will miss the next two months (knee-cartilage surgery), so that opens a spot for Sermon to debut will Sunday in Philadelphia, likely as a reserve. What’s up with Brandon Aiyuk? Is he on the doghouse? (@linuts) “On the doghouse” might be an apt description, because he’s not necessarily in it. This camp and preseason, Aiyuk had more drops than usual, plus a tight hamstring two weeks ago. A more decisive factor…

Kurtenbach: The SF Giants’ secret to greatness? A new-school approach and an old-school mindset

SAN FRANCISCO — The 2021 San Francisco Giants are the best kind of great team: A surprise. At the beginning of the season, in the early days of Spring Training in Arizona, the concept of the Giants making the playoffs was a far-fetched fantasy to even the most brainwashed and optimistic San Francisco fan. Now, with 18 games to play, they’re in — with more than half of the final month of the regular season to play, they’ve clinched a spot in the postseason. The Giants are the first team in baseball to stamp their ticket to October, and it was only fitting that they beat the Padres — a division rival and a squad so many around baseball, including myself, pegged as a “super team” at the beginning of the season — on Monday night, to do it. Wait. How, exactly, did the Giants do it? After all, these Giants aren’t the best team money can buy — the majority of their payroll, the tenth-highest in baseball, is tied up in four of five players signed under the previous front-office regime in San Francisco.…

100 years ago: Tamales conceal bottles cleverly guised for booze

The ingenuity of bootleggers to screen their operations from too close scrutiny of the officers has been directed along new and unexpected channels, this time in the form of a bottle skillfully covered with excelsior and corn husks to resemble a real hot tamale. The rather clever device was uncovered yesterday when some dove hunters were scouting over the country a few miles west of Red Bluff. The hunters were moving along Live Oak creek when one of their number stumbled onto a barrel hidden in the brush. Curiosity prompted him to glance into the barrel, which was nearly filled with what he at first thought were tamales. Closer inspection of the contents revealed the true nature of the supposed “tamales.” The bottles inside the excelsior and corn husks were empty, but evidently had been wrapped up for the purpose of filling with moonshine and selling to the bootleg trade. Whoever was responsible for the job had taken particular pains to see that the corn husks extended over the cork of the bottle, so as to avoid exciting suspicion as to the contents. — Sept.…

SF Giants Clinch Playoff Spot With 9-1 Thumping Of Padres, 8th Win In A Row

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — It’s been five years since Brandon Belt got to toast a playoff berth, so the Giants first baseman was admittedly out of practice when the champagne started to flow in San Francisco’s clubhouse. “I forgot how much this burns to get in your eyes, but it burns so good,” a beaming Belt said. “We absolutely love it.” The surprising Giants became the first team to clinch a playoff spot this season, hitting four home runs to beat the San Diego Padres 9-1 on Monday night for their season-high eighth consecutive victory. The Giants gather on the pitching mound for a victory picture after the game between the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants on Sept. 13, 2021 at Oracle Park in San Francisco, CA. (Photo by Larry Placido/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images) After finishing 29-31 during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, the Giants have turned things around in manager Gabe Kapler’s second year. They have the best record in baseball (94-50) with 18 games remaining — guaranteeing them at least a wild card as they try to hold off the rival…

Inland Empire residents find lifeline in rent-relief programs

Like many, Trina Harper lost her job at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. The 51-year-old Chino resident, who had worked as a safety attendant at an oil refinery, initially relied on her savings to support herself and her three grandchildren. But once her account was depleted earlier this year, she turned to the government for basic necessities like rent. “I had a good amount of money saved,” Harper said. “I heard about the program in the small community I live in. I ignored it the first time, but once my savings went down, I got a little desperate.” Stories such as Harper’s are why government — including San Bernardino and Riverside counties — launched rent-relief programs. The livelihoods of many Inland Empire families were hit by the pandemic and they found themselves on the brink of eviction. So Inland county governments joined with nonprofit groups to provide financial help to cover rents and to offer other guidance. Harper first applied to the state program Housing is Key and said she waited two months for a response. After that, she got a call saying her…

Robert Durst’s defense makes closing argument in his murder trial; L.A. jury to begin deliberating Tuesday

Lawyers for Robert Durst, a real estate heir charged with silencing his best friend with a bullet to the back of her head, argued to a jury that prosecutors had failed to prove a point essential to their case: that Durst had killed his wife four decades ago, the alleged crime to which Durst’s friend was believed to be a witness. Los Angeles County prosecutors have made the case that Durst killed his best friend, Susan Berman, because she had helped cover up the death of his wife, Kathie Durst, who vanished in 1982 and has never been seen since. After Kathie was killed, Berman impersonated her in a call to the medical school that she was attending, telling a dean she was too ill to go to class, according to the prosecution’s theory. Two decades later, when authorities revived the investigation into his wife’s disappearance, Durst killed Berman to keep her from telling the police what she knew, prosecutors say. They have charged Durst with murdering Berman, 55, in her Benedict Canyon home with a single shot to the back of the head. The…
