Ohlone College picks housing developer
Ohlone College has taken a major step toward altering the look of its campus, choosing a developer to build more than 300 homes along Mission Boulevard.
The college's board selected San Francisco-based Carmel Partners, which proposes building 314 housing units and 25,000 square feet of retail on 15 acres. Ohlone also will grant the developer control of the property for 60 years, with a 30-year option.
In return, Carmel will give the college an initial payment of $1.2 million. After that, annual lease payments will be $600,000, but they could increase after five years.
The deal is not yet complete. The developer must gain approval of key details from Fremont planners and elected leaders before construction can begin.
Carmel was one of two companies bidding for the project. Clark Realty Capital was not selected, despite having been in talks for months with college leaders about the property.

UCSF physicians to work at Washington
UCSF physicians trained in newborn care will now staff Washington Hospital's special care nursery under an agreement between the hospital and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco.
The affiliation was announced Wednesday.
Washington's special care nursery is an intermediate infant intensive care unit.
UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco also formally affiliated with Children's Hospital Oakland earlier this year. The Oakland hospital was renamed UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland earlier this month after philanthropists Lynne and Marc Benioff donated $50 million to it. The San Francisco children's hospital also received $50 from the San Francisco couple.
"We're pleased that babies who require a higher level of care can be treated locally by specialists from UCSF, an institution with a reputation for providing some of the best neonatal care in the country," said Nancy Farber, Washington Hospital Healthcare System CEO, in a news release.

Girl reports she was assaulted, kidnapped
San Francisco police are investigating a report that a teen girl was possibly sexually assaulted, robbed, and kidnapped and then left in Berkeley early Wednesday, police said.
A resident called 911 at 5:06 a.m. after the girl was heard yelling for help in the 2900 block of Piedmont Avenue at Ashby Avenue, Berkeley police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Coats said.
The girl told police that the attack began in Oakland, Coats said. Oakland police got the report at 6:21 a.m., a department spokeswoman confirmed.
It was later discovered the incident originated in San Francisco and that agency is investigating, a San Francisco police spokesman confirmed late Wednesday.
The girl, whose age and identity were not released, was transported to an East Bay hospital, but her condition was not released. Police said the case may be linked to human sex trafficking but did not say if they believe the teen is a sex worker.

Good Friday protest at Lawrence Lab gates
Anti-nuclear activists and interfaith groups will gather at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory on Friday for the annual Good Friday protest and march, beginning at 7 a.m.
Protesters will gather at the northwest corner of Vasco and Patterson Pass roads and march to the lab's west gate, where those who choose to sit and block the gate will be arrested.
This year's program features keynote speaker Kathy Kelly, a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, who will detail her experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. The event will also feature a liturgical dance by Carla De Sola, a welcome and update on nuclear issues by Tri-Valley Communities Against A Radioactive Environment, and a presentation of the stations of the cross along the route.
Last year's protest drew about 100 people and resulted in 37 arrests for obstructing a public roadway.

Man robs U.S. Bank on Hesperian Boulevard
A man armed with a note, wearing a black T-shirt that read "I have issues," robbed a South Hayward bank this week, authorities said.
The suspect, who police said was caught on camera during the heist, walked into the U.S. Bank at 27000 Hesperian Boulevard about 3:50 p.m. on Tuesday, approached a teller window and handed a bank employee a note demanding money, said Sgt. Eric Melendez.
The note indicated the suspect was armed and robbing the bank, police said. The man did not show a weapon during the robbery.
The teller complied, and the suspect walked out of the bank through the front door.
Police described the suspect as a Hispanic or white man in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 185 pounds.
Security cameras inside the bank caught two photos of the suspect. In them, the suspect is donning jeans and a black T-shirt with a small red cartoon character wearing a mask and a gun strapped into a holster, looking at comic books.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Detective Ray Bugarin at 510-293-7085 or Inspector John Lage at 510-293-8688.
