Housing: Future San Jose BART station site sparks plans for new homes

SAN JOSE — Hundreds of homes, including some that would be affordable, are being planned for a site near a future BART station that is slated to be opened east of downtown San Jose. The residential development would sprout on a 1.1-acre site at 70 N. 27th St. in San Jose, which is about a five-minute walk from the location of the 28th Street/Little Portugal BART station just north of East Santa Clara Street. “We have a preliminary proposal for 205 residential units right now,” said Jerry Strangis, a Bay Area real estate executive and land consultant who is representing the project’s developer. The developer, which wasn’t identified, intends to demolish an existing building on the project site at 70 N. 27 St. in San Jose. “This area is going to change dramatically with the new BART station,” Strangis said. The building that would be bulldozed contains a supplier of floral arrangements, table decorations, and other items for special events such as weddings. A Latin fitness dance studio also is located in the North 27th Street building. The very preliminary project proposal envisions 205 studio and…

Marin’s mountain biking roots lie deep in heart of Olympian Kate Courtney

Mount Tamalpais rises above Tom and Maggie Courtney’s home like a green-carpeted playground where their daughter Kate first felt the adventure of riding a balloon-tire bicycle. The 2,572-foot promontory had a strong presence in Courtney’s active childhood as an inviting open space beyond her backyard in Kentfield. You don’t need to squint, or even turn your head to see Mt. Tam from the Courtney home. “We live right underneath the mountain,” Tom Courtney said over the phone from his deck with birdsong in the background. The origins of modern mountain biking can be traced along Tam’s bumpy fire roads and chamise-lined, single-track trails that helped mold Kate Courtney, 25, into a world-class rider. She is the latest Marinite to reach the Olympic stage and enters the women’s cross-country race Tuesday in Izu City, Japan, as a bona fide medal contender. Mill Valley’s Susan DeMattei won a bronze medal when mountain biking made its Olympic debut in 1996 and Mary McConneloug of Fairfax had top-10 finishes at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. Courtney, a Stanford graduate now living in the Peninsula foothills, has blossomed into the…

‘What you’re doing is unprecedented’: McCarthy-Pelosi feud boils over

By Melanie Zanona and Manu Raju, CNN The relationship between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was never very warm. Now it’s in the downright gutter. After a whiplash week of power plays between the two party leaders over the January 6 select committee, tensions are at an all-time high between the California lawmakers, and there are zero signs of that simmering down anytime soon — with both lambasting each other publicly and erupting at each other privately. In a heated phone call last week, Pelosi informed McCarthy that she would reject two of his selections to the special House committee investigating the January 6 attack. Voices were raised, a source with knowledge of the matter said, and McCarthy protested, hinting the decision could come back to haunt her. “What you’re doing is unprecedented,” McCarthy told Pelosi, according to a second source familiar with the call. Publicly, Pelosi agreed. “The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision,” Pelosi said, contending that McCarthy’s selections of GOP Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio would have undercut the integrity…

Draymond Green on Team USA’s Olympic meltdown: ‘We didn’t do enough’

Draymond Green did not sound panicky after Team USA lost an Olympic basketball game for the first time in 17 years. The Warriors center was matter-of-fact in his summation of the United States’  83-76 defeat to France — a game that turned on a fourth-quarter collapse. “We haven’t been together long but we’ve been together long enough to be consistent,” Green said in a news conference. “We have to defend better down the stretch. We have to close the games out.” The Americans did none of that in an inauspicious start to the Tokyo Games at Saitama Super Arena. France became the third team this month to defeat Team USA. The other two were meaningless exhibition defeats to Nigeria and Australia in Las Vegas. SAITAMA, JAPAN – JULY 25: Evan Fournier #10 of Team France drives to the basket against Draymond Green #14 of Team United States during the second half of the Men’s Preliminary Round Group B game on day two of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games at Saitama Super Arena on July 25, 2021 in Saitama, Japan.
