What 5 boxes did Trey Lance check to win over the 49ers?

Kyle Shanahan was vacationing in Mexico when the 49ers’ quarterback hunt went very public. They had traded up to No. 3, climbing nine spots on March 26  to assure themselves a shot at Trey Lance, the North Dakota State product who wowed them initially with his game film and then with his social interactions. Most outsiders overlooked the 49ers’ infatuation with Lance. Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were secret admirers. “I was in Mexico the day we made the trade and within hours there’s at least two people out there speculating that we’re taking Mac Jones,” Shanahan recalled Thursday night. “Ever since then I’ve just watched every single person assume that was accurate, that those weren’t opinions but fact. “We didn’t feel that way from the beginning. I know how we felt about Trey the whole time.” Here are five areas Lance won over the 49ers more than Justin Fields (No. 11 pick, Chicago Bears) and Jones (No. 15, New England Patriots): 1. GAME FILM The biggest knock on Lance is he has a small sample size from a small school, all due respect…

100 years ago: Woman shoots at district attorney

District Attorney M. J. Cheatham of Tehama county narrowly escaped being shot shortly before 11 o’clock this morning when Miss Nina K. Robinson, an apparently crazed woman, 40 years of age, fired a bullet at him from a .38 automatic revolver which she had concealed in a handbag during a short interview with him. She fired at him at short range, the bullet, however, missing the mark and embedding itself in the wall of the hallway just outside the district attorney’s office, where the interview took place. Miss Robinson had only a moment before demanded the arrest of Thomas R. Walton, a well known citizen of Red Bluff and for many years engaged in the dairy business here, against whom she seemed to be harboring an old grudge, on a charge of failure to support her seventeen-year-old daughter. She claimed that Mr. Walton was the father of the girl. When it became evident to Miss Robinson that Mr. Cheatham was not going to comply with her request, she opened fire, causing a hasty retreat from the district attorney’s office of Undersheriff Henry A. Martin and…

Everyday Cheapskate: Debt and that squished feeling

Dear Mary: We would like to enlarge our small two-bedroom bungalow. Our kids are reaching the teen years, and we need more space. We have always budgeted our money. We have $6,000 in our emergency fund and drive two paid-for cars, and our only debt is our mortgage. We have college savings accounts for our kids and tithe to our church. Our annual income is about $140,000. We have five different bids, and they all came in about the same at $160,000 to add three rooms upstairs, plus a stairway. Even though I know adding 900 square feet will increase the value of our home, I feel queasy about increasing our mortgage debt. What is your advice for us? — Sam and Edie Dear Sam and Edie: I can understand that you are nervous about taking on a big new monthly payment, one that could well double what you are paying now — plus increased property taxes. Here’s a good way to find out if you can reasonably afford to do this: Figure out your new monthly payment, including taxes and insurance, using any online…

Fire Rips Through Del Paso Heights Apartments, 1 Person Taken To Hospital

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Firefighters say one person has been rushed to the hospital after a large fire tore through an apartment complex in Del Paso Heights early Friday morning. The fire was first reported just before 3:45 a.m along the 300 block of Anderson Court.

A total of nine people had to evacuate. Heavy flames could be seen shooting from the upper units. By the time the flames were under control, the structure suffered significant damage. Firefighters say the person who was taken to the hospital was found in a front yard. Exactly what caused the fire is now under investigation.

At least 45 killed in stampede at religious festival in Israel

A stampede at a religious festival attended by tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews in northern Israel killed at least 45 people and injured about 150 early Friday, medical officials said. It was one of the country’s deadliest civilian disasters. The stampede began when large numbers of people thronged a narrow tunnel-like passage during the event, according to witnesses and video footage. People began falling on top of each other near the end of the walkway, as they descended slippery metal stairs, witnesses said. One of the injured, Avraham Leibe, told Israeli public broadcaster Kan that a crush of people trying to descend the mountain caused a “general bedlam” on a slippery metal slope followed by stairs. “Nobody managed to halt,” he said from a hospital bed. “I saw one after the other fall.” Video footage showed large numbers of people, most of them black-clad ultra-Orthodox men, squeezed in the tunnel. Initial reports and witnesses said police barricades had prevented people from exiting quickly. The stampede occurred during the celebrations of Lag BaOmer at Mount Meron, the first mass religious gathering to be held legally…

Disneyland Reopens Friday For First Time Since March 2020

ANAHEIM (CBSLA) – For the first time in more than 400 days, Disneyland will reopen its theme parks to thousands of excited visitors Friday. A view of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Park illuminated during a special live streamed moment to welcome cast members back to the resort on April 26, 2021, at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. (Getty Images) Both Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park will reopen at 25% capacity. Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Only California residents are allowed to visit at this time. The demand for tickets has been extraordinary. Disneyland’s online reservation experienced major delays when it opened April 15. Visitors will have to wear masks and follow physical distancing guidelines. Guests will also not be able to get up close and personal with their favorite Disney characters, such as Mickey Mouse. There will be no parades or fireworks shows either. Those with a Park Hopper ticket you will not be allowed to switch parks until about 1 p.m. Disneyland conducted soft opening previews Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for its 15,000 cast members. “Opening a park responsibly is…

Dodger Stadium vaccine site to close by end of May amid demand slowdown

In another sign of slowing demand for the COVID-19 vaccine, Los Angeles city officials announced on Friday that the mass vaccination site at Dodger Stadium — one of the largest in the country — will cease operations by the end of May, as part of a major shift to increase appointment-free vaccine availability at other city-run sites. The pending closure comes amid a broader slowdown in demand across the region and country, a trend that is concerning public health officials. Appointments for the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine have decreased by about 50% at Los Angeles County-run clinics, county health officials announced Thursday. Deputy Mayor Jeff Gorell said the city has also seen a significant drop in appointment slots at city-run clinics, and that closing Dodger Stadium is aimed at dispersing access and availability at other city sites. Officials hope that a shift to this new system will mean that people unable to set a specific appointment time — due to work schedules, internet access or some other obstacle — will have more flexibility to get a shot. “The process that will allow us to demobilize Dodger…

Key tax credit proposed in Biden’s $1.8T families plan expires after 2025

President Joe Biden couldn’t get everything he wanted into his own $1.8 trillion families plan. His proposed child tax credit is set to expire after 2025. It would provide parents with $300 a month for each child under age 6 and $250 a month for older children. Democratic lawmakers are pushing hard to make the credit a permanent policy, but the administration told them that the annual costs of roughly $100 billion were too high. Biden is embracing a dramatic shift from four decades of politics in which presidents from both parties focused more on containing government than expanding it. But the resistance to making the child tax credit permanent is a sign that even in a White House that embraces big government, there are some limits. “This is a very expensive policy, probably another $500 billion-plus to extend this for the rest of the decade,” said Shai Akabas, director of economic policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center. “According to the principles they’ve laid out, they would want to show they’re paying for it, and the current ‘pay-fors’ would be insufficient even on a 15-year basis.”…

69% of voters in 2020 presidential election cast ballots early or by mail, U.S. Census Bureau reports

More than two-thirds of all U.S. citizens of the voting age population participated in the 2020 presidential election, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report, and 69% of those cast ballots by mail or early in-person voting — methods that Republicans in some states are curtailing. That’s an explosion in the use of mail and early voting compared to four years earlier, when just 40% of voters cast ballots that way. The change was in part a result of the pandemic, which prompted health officials to urge voters to stay away from crowded in-person polling places. The figures are part of a Census Bureau survey of voters, released Thursday, that offers new details about the extraordinary turnout in the 2020 presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden. In some experts’ estimates, the election posted the highest turnout rate since 1900, before women had the right to vote. Trump pointed to the high mail voting and early voting numbers to suggest that the election was rife with fraud and irregularities. Those false claims are now driving a GOP effort in several states…

Delaware Sen. Tom Carper urges U.S. rules barring gas-powered cars by 2035

A top Senate Democrat is urging U.S. anti-pollution standards that would follow a deal brokered by California with five automakers and then set targets to end sales of new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035, a goal that reaches farther than President Joe Biden’s climate plan. In a letter sent late Thursday to the Environmental Protection Agency, Delaware Sen. Tom Carper, who chairs the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, says the administration must move forcefully in the auto sector to achieve Biden’s plan of slashing America’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. Carper notes that the industry is already moving in the direction of zero-emission electric vehicles and that it’s critical to lay markers now to ensure that the U.S. positions itself as a top player in auto manufacturing over foreign competitors such as China. “Strong policies in the United States will encourage those investments to be made here,” Carper wrote in the letter to EPA Administrator Michael Regan, which was obtained by The Associated Press. He cited likely U.S. gains in “research and development, manufacturing and ultimately export opportunities in automotive technology.” Under Carper’s proposal, the…
