Fremont store sells another winning Powerball ticket

A 7-Eleven on Central Avenue has sold two lottery tickets worth nearly $800,000 so far this year. 
A DNA sample led police to arrest a San Ramon man at a Hayward court Wednesday in connection with a 2014 gang rape at UC Santa Barbara.  
 
The union representing city of Hayward maintenance and clerical workers shelled out more than $140,000 gathering signatures to qualify a ballot measure to change when city elections are held.  
 
Oakland Lakeshore Avenue's New Easy cocktail bar and karaoke lounge closes; Castro Valley could land a new Sprouts grocery store; Fremont offering grants to pay for dead and dying tree removal.  
 
Please don't discard orange or tangerine peels after you've had your midhike snack. Pack them back with you instead. Generally speaking, wild animals don't like the taste of orange peels any better than humans do. The peels will biodegrade eventually, but it takes a really long time, and in the meantime the peels create an unsightly mess.  
 
Some developmentally disabled adults in Alameda County stranded on buses, picked up hours late after a new company took over a month earlier than expected.  
 
The shuttles would run from Hayward's two BART stations.  
 
A man who alleged officers roughed him up after a 2014 traffic stop and then released a police dog, which inflicted serious injury to the man's arm and chin, will receive $45,000.

Carl Williams, 21, was last seen at the city's South Hayward BART station Monday.  
 
The Hayward man was killed Sunday morning in the Laurel district of East Oakland when someone fired shots into a house where he was visiting friends, police said.
