North Bay fires: $9K-per-month home rental brings gouging charge

“There are some unscrupulous individuals who engage in price gouging, taking advantage of those who are already suffering,” Becerra said. “It’s wrong, it’s unconscionable, and it’s illegal.”

The 4,600-square-foot home in Novato had been on the market for months. The owner offered it furnished, utilities included, for $5,000 a month, according to Zillow. Then, in October, about 30 miles to the north, the Tubbs Fire sparked. It destroyed 5,636 houses, businesses and oth...

Adoption update on Oregon Pup Medford, now Ford! “Ford is settling in really well in our household! He is so smart already! He LOVES fuzzy chew toys and people's jackets. He had his first bath the other day and just stood there to let me wash him and towel him off. We are still working on giving the kitties their space but for the most part he just wants to say hi and play with them. He already knows sit and his name! Such a smartie. He’s learning how to walk on leash and pay attention to me outside the house and doing amazing. We’re guessing he’s going to be bigger than 40 lbs fully grown at this point since he is already 23 pounds at 3 months old! He’s still pretty mellow most the day but does love to say hello to everyone when they come home and loves play time. He’s learned how to play tug of war and plays it with everyone when they come home. He’s also obsessed with digging in the sand pile we have behind the house. He’s basically the cutest thing ever, we’re so happy to have him around." #AdoptionUpdate ...

Congrats!!! I think you are right about the weight. Our boy was about the same weight and he ended up at 52 pounds by 2 years old.

Portland (now Page) is doing well. She too loves fuzzy toys, soccer balls, and ice cubes. She is super smart and already mastered: sit, down, roll over, leave it, and working on stay. She loves car rides to pick up her kids from school. They are so similar. She also lives playing tug and digging in one spot in the backyard. At 3.5 months she is weighing in at 18.6 lbs

Loving life 🐾💕👍😊🐕

Going going gone! To the Yankees for an injured reliever.

Ballkhrusher Davis blasts another one!

The A’s need an awesome stadium!

Krush keeping it real

A’s are on 🔥

Let’s get this sweep!

Simien never should
Have tagged up,may have cost us the game

"Khris-Krushed"

Oh my god, if I have to watch Pagan pitch again I'm going to jump out the window.

He has Hella Fast hands.I love it! go A'S!.

💪Krush💪

Keep Krushing Khris! Go Athletics!!!

The outfield needs to work together...the infield needs to be automatic. 13-11...wow thank goodness for offense....and Graveman used to dig opponents graves, not his own. I make myself laugh...thank you

Don’t say it too loud cause Beane and Forst might trade him there for a bunch of scrubs.

Krush

Graveman = Trash

My favorite ball player!

Why is Maxwell still on the team, he's terrible

Offense is lackadaisical again! Another baserunner thrown out....tying run on 2nd with no outs!!! #boneheaded

Not the A's night..2 out of 3 to start the roadtrip..will take it..back at it Friday in Houston..Go A's

Remember folks, we traded Josh Donaldson for this bum Graveman. 😂😂😂

Graveman once again walking away a loser! 3 runs, 4 walks in 5 innings! DFA is a** already!!!!!!!!!!

A’s need to dump joyce & maxwell NOWWWW!!!!!!!

Graveman is not the Ace they hoped for. He is average.

Time to ditch Graveman? It's possible. He can't beat anyone

WOW!! They lost A game in a series of three and the hate & negativity is right back. No support of players, just straight negativity. Go A's & CONGRATS on the series win. Losses aren't as fun but you'll bounce back.

Again...why is Graveman still there?

Do they cover base running in spring training? At least glad they're over .500!

Joyce is now 0-4!!!! Somebody explain to me why they left Joyce in to face the lefty, instead of bringing in Pinder???!!! Pinder needs to stay in LF, let Joyce and Piscotty share RF.

Lost or Win GO Oakland❤💪😎

Base running on this team is atrocious. Matt Williams, do not have Semien tag up!

You people still rip on Graveman even though he's looked better today? Jesus Christ give him a break. He's finally turning things around.

Get rid of the strike zone on TV distortion of the views make me not want to watch

This team had better not play like they did this evening if they want to win in Houston. I hope they aren't under 500 when they leave there.

Praise the gods, Graveman didn't give up a run!

Just 4 hits, 2 errors, another loss by graveman, another run given up by pagan and not one runner reached since the 5th inning....even though hot, a sweep should’ve been easy and useful going into the astros series

What is going on with Kendall Graveman in this season?

The outfield needs to work together...the infield needs to be automatic. 13-11...wow thank goodness for offense

Jinxhole

There’s the old Graveman we all know love!

Go As⚾💚💛

0-5 8.89 ERA. Time to go.

Disneyland

Actor Luis Ángel Jaramillo, the voice behind the character of Miguel in the Latin American release of the Disney•Pixar film “Coco,” recently visited the Disneyland Resort for the first time and met up with the famed Mariachi Divas for an impromptu performance! ...

 

Comment on Facebook

I thought Anthony Gonzalez was the voice of Miguel in Coco.. just wondering..

He´s a great Miguel, the spanish version is wonderful.

I still don't understand why the wrong one was on the Oscars. That guy could NOT sing. This one can!

He has a great voice! I love the Spanish songs of Coco.

Disneyland while I understand that rides have long lines due to the amount of people in the park, something should be done for the families that wait in line for a long period of time and have to leave due to a young child having to use the restroom. Getting back and starting over again shouldn’t happen

Wow ...He sings really well with Mariachi .... we heard him at a candy store in Guanajuato Mexico were he is from in December .... and he said he has never been in Disney Park .... he is really humble, nice boy....we are very happy for him to finally go to a Disneyland Park ...

Orlando Chavez this would’ve been so cool to see!😭

Erica White Lauren Andersen soooooo I bet this is what the film crew was doing

Ow my kids absolutely love both the Spanish and English version. The songs are amazing my children watch this movie at least once a day they Have all the songs memorized. 🤗

Stephanie Martinez OMG you guys are amazing!!!! 😱

This movie touched my heart!!!

Stephanie Nicole This is what they were filming on cars!!!

Awe! That's awesome!!
The movie & soundtrack is awesome!!! 😃💛🎶💀🌼

Nathan Gob we should’ve been there!!! *cries in Spanish* 😭

Lizzette Jaramillo the actor that does Miguel in Spanish has your same last name! Your niece was right!

I loved the Movie " Coco " , This is Awesome 😊

Natalie Gonzalez this makes me soooo happyyyyy

ADina Ortiz I guess it’s better than nothing.

Aviana Ramos omg he's so adorable!❤️

Lou Collazo Fotos great song from a great movie, with some great musicians

How come we can’t find any coco toys?

We love the Mariachi Divas!!!

OH MY GOOOOSH *cries in spanish* Vanessa Figueroa

Casey Boyle what the heck in the world

Susana Espinoza look its miguel and the mariachi girls we saw that one day

Need to score 12 runs

Why is everyone always so negative on here enjoy the ride how ever long it last!! Or better yet go be a Giant's fan!!

Well...Triggs upped his game last night hope the same for Graveman. Three would be right nice.Can't remember the last time our A'S have been at .500 or above.sure is fun to watch a young group play like this and have fun for them and fans alike.Go A'S!

Hopefully Kendall won't dig our Grave...man.

Percentage wise, the A’s division is incredibly close. Only April, ya, yet if the A’s stay hot ... crazy things could occur over the next five days.
Let’s go!

Christopher Morelini you called it when you said the A's were going to be good this year. The AL West is hands down the toughest division this year. Wouldn't be surprised if the A's win it. Also wouldn't be surprised if Lowrie wins MVP. He has a better overall offensive game than Trout and Altuve.

Holly Carter, call them out!!

Time for Graveman to pitch like he belongs in the Majors.

Graveman was our last 2 losses. Could it be the last 3? That would not look good.

Bold prediction: Graveman goes 6.2 IP and only allows 3 ER! 😂

Hoping he turns it around today!

Contribute something positive to our team for once Graveman.

Graveman needs to go

Gonna be there tomorrow. Day late, dollar short. Go A's!

SWEEP!!!!

With graveman on the mound let's hope for 10 runs

Let’s get it

Come on Graveman!!💛⚾💚

Go for the sweep!!

Love how this man cares for his community and helps in every way he can.need more Rickey's!.

Wish all players had the class that Rickey has.

Rickey likes Rickey’s Field being red educated to Rickey again

Best player I ever saw play

Rickey looks like he could toss on the cleats and have 60 SBs by the break

Congrats, as always, Rickey! Now, can you get onto the field and teach everyone how to play ball consistently? Please??? We want to go to the World Series this year!

I wish so would have known about it , Congrats to Rickey an amazing role model for our youth and community 💚😎💚

Rickey is a community serving dude, so nice to have one of Oakland's own always giving back

“Rickey is one of the nicest guys I know”. -Rickey Henderson

My aunt went to school with him. . She says all the time he's a great guy. . Always has been.

I love Rickey.

Not to be a smart-aleck (for once), but how many fields does Rickey have named after him now?

He was/is my favorite player

Rickey Henderson is a man amongst men.
💚💛⚾️💚💛

Love him and that coat!! Lol

I do think that Mara Justine should have been there in place of the wannabe "Selena Quintanilla" Michelle Susette

This show is way past its expiration date 🤢

Ava and catie need to go!

This show is still on the air???

Let them go to Disney World. We don’t need them at Disneyland.

Nobody is watching this

Go Ada, Michelle ya she should not have made the top ten. I thought Mara out sang her. Cade he will be a Rock star. I love Catie.

Who cares no one remembers the winner same this the voice who cares

What a talented group of singers, even the ones that didn't make it!

then don't watch....easy

Did not agree with some of the choices. Where's Mara and Marcio?

I gave up watching weeks ago. It's just another political agenda

It's a popularity show.

Mara should b there too she is a fantastic artist!

Haven't watched this show in years lol

Just stopped watching it's all PC stuff not talent

Oh Brother lol talk about sell out lol

Forever family wanted! Meet Jackie!

468 days. Jackie has been waiting for her family for far too long! Please like, tag, comment, and share to help Jackie find her forever home.

Used as a breeding dog and then discarded when she was no longer useful, this beautiful 6 year old Shepherd mix has flourished since she arrived with Labs and More. Once matted, her coat is soft and fluffy and she has a twinkle in her eye that we didn't see when she first arrived. This dream girl checks a lot of boxes in the list of what most people desire in a canine pal. Jackie is house trained and has access to a yard (and her choice of dog beds) when her humans leave during the day. She is friendly and affectionate, loves to snuggle, and does well with other dogs of any size. She is a playful and happy girl who loves treats and all things that squeak. Jackie came to us with hip dysplasia and arthritis, neither of which are able to be fixed with surgery. She walks with a limp, but she doesn't let that stop her from enjoying life! The sight of her leash and new squeaky toys always get a speedy trot out of Jackie. She takes glucosamine to help her joints but otherwise doesn't take any daily medication. Jackie would love a forever family that enjoys a leisurely lifestyle and wants to be showered by her love. No kitties for this sweetie though, she was tested in a foster home with cats and thinks that cats are fun to chase.

Interested in adding a sweet love bug to your family? The first step in being approved to adopt from Labs and More is applying online at www.labsandmore.org. Already approved to adopt and interested in meeting Jackie? Email your adoption coach to request a meeting with this sweet girl. Our dogs are located in Southern California. Please SHARE to help Jackie find her forever home! #AdoptDontShop ...

I fostered Jackie for about 4 months and she is a wonderful dog. Very gentle and so well behaved. She was a perfect office dog.

Oh she is so beautiful! I cannot believe she hasn’t been adopted. Hopefully soon🤞🏼🤞🏼

Cutting Edge K9 Rehab will donate a few sessions for jackie and offer her new parents a big discount for swimming which will help her limp/hip dysplasia tremendously!!!!! Beautiful girl🐾💕

She is the perfect example of adopt, don’t shop! After being used for breeding then discarded - that’s just shameful! Sending Miss Jackie lots of love and prayers that she will find the best, loving forever home she so deserves! ❤️🙏

I will add that Golden Paste... very simple to make with turmeric, coconut oil, water and fresh ground black pepper will help her joints so so much! 💛💜

What a beauty she is!! Prayers for Miss Jackie. .. 💞💞💞 come on peeps!!

I fostered Jackie for a while and my whole family fell in love with her. She is a total sweetheart.

She is so beautiful and well mannered at the events

She's beautiful!! 💕

She is amazing 😘

She's gorgeous

Gaius (formerly Conch, bottom in the photo) has been a perfect partner in crime for his older sister Blueberry.

Elwood (formerly Oyster) is also doing great! He loves to play fetch and has yet to meet a human or fellow dog he doesn't love. We adore him. If only I could get him to stop digging...but no one's perfect ;)

This is Albie (Abalone). He’ll do anything for a treat. His joy and happiness are infectious. We are a happy little family in the Mira Mesa area, and would love a meet up with any of the pups.

What a sweetheart. Our Malcolm (Auger) is a wonderful dog too and has brought so much joy to our lives. It must run in the family!

This is so great! Pita was our first foster and we were so happy she went to such a good home! If you ever do a meet up we would love to come and see her!

For all of Pita’s siblings, we are in the Inland Empire but would love to set up a reunion some time! ☺️
