On Tuesday, September 11, the Berkeley City Council voted against holding a public hearing before handing over Iceland, the city's beloved ice rink, to the owners of Sports Basement to open the newest location for their sporting goods chain.

Council member Linda Maio was absent.

For the fifth week in a row, activists gathered in downtown San Francisco to protest BART over police shootings and the agency's ongoing strategy to stifle dissent.
