on October 22, 2009
Getting to our daily digest a little late this morning, but just in time for your lunch break.
- Further developments in the ongoing Chauncy Bailey investigation reported by the Trib this morning – Sgt Longmire is returning to duty after being suspended because of suspicions that his relationship with Your Black Muslim Bakery leader, Yusuf Ali Bey IV, may have compromised the Bailey murder investigation.
- On a more positive note, Oakland North would like to join the effort to find a “missing teacher” from Piedmont Ave elementary, circa 1965. Her name was probably Anne Hazzard at the time and she taught fourth grade at Piedmont Ave, a particularly grateful former student explained to Trib columnist Dave Newhouse. Read the whole story and see if you can help Mike Bugbee find his former teacher and thank her.
- The New York Times gave Oakland North a small nod last week when it listed us as a “News and General Interest blog” on its new Bay Area blog. We’re not sure that “blog” is the most appropriate appellation, but we’re glad to see the Times taking a more pronounced interest in the Bay Area.
