Hey hey Oakland North,

Quick updates for the day:

Elgin Garret, 45, was arrested today for kidnapping and robbery. The OPD posted a photo of Garret yesterday during a robbery at an ATM machine in North Oakland.

Sam Laird posted an article that talks about a space at Oakland International High School that may turn into a new park.

S. Howard Bransford blogs about a demonstration that took place yesterday in downtown Oakland where people protested charges filed against a Bay Area journalist.

We all felt the record breaking chill today. SF Gate reports on the frigid weather across the Bay Area.
