Silicon Valley Restaurant Keeps it in the Family

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 23:00:00 PDT

Hobee's Restaurant is a Peninsula and South Bay tradition. Its been known as a homey, quirky family-owned restaurant chain (with world famous blueberry coffeecake) since it first opened in 1974. When customers found out that the longtime owners had decided to sell the restaurant, they worried that this relic of old Silicon Valley would become just another part in the regions constantly changing landscape. But Hobees is bucking the Valleys start-up and cash out culture by selling the restaurant to two longtime employees.

Oakland Homeless Encampments: Too Big to Ignore

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:30:00 PDT

Lately, we?ve been hearing a lot from our listeners when we air profiles of homeless people in California. A couple of weeks ago, many of you responded with offers of help after hearing our special ?Homeless U? - checking back in on the homeless college students we?ve been following. Now we?re going to turn to a story about a group most people think of when they think about homelessness: people who live in tent cities. More of these encampments have been sprouting up in many of California?s largest cities, lining streets and freeway underpasses. You see that a lot in Oakland, a place that prides itself on tackling social issues. But the city?s struggled to help homeless encampments while also trying to welcome new development. KQED?s Devin Katayama spent time with some residents in one of those encampments, and tells us about what makes these homeless communities vulnerable, and also, strong.



In a Startup and Cash-Out World, One Silicon Valley Restaurant Keeps It Homespun

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:30:00 PDT

Silicon Valley is a place that?s all about fast-paced change. The Valley?s startup and cash-out culture means companies frequently change owners, get new bosses, and take on new identities. But there are exceptions. As part of a new series we?re calling Family Biz, The California Report?s Ryan Levi tells us about one Silicon Valley restaurant that?s working to keep things the way they?ve been for forty years.

There's a Cancer-Causing Chemical in My Drinking Water. California Will Finally Regulate It

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 16:30:00 PDT

More than 25 years after the state determined a chemical called 123 TCP caused cancer, this week, the California water board voted to regulate the chemical in our drinking water. Last year, I did a story about this cancer-causing chemical. I was worried because my family may have been drinking it. Let's rewind to last spring, and take a listen.

Author Looks Back at Deadly Plane Crash That Killed 28 Farmworkers

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 23:00:00 PDT

One cold winter morning in January 1948, 32 passengers were killed when a plane crashed in Los Gatos Canyon, near the Central Valley town of Coalinga. The dead included 28 Mexican farmworkers in the process of being deported by the U.S. government. Woody Guthrie was outraged that newspaper accounts of the crash omitted the names of the Mexican passengers, so he gave symbolic names to the dead in his song, "Deportee." For seven decades, the names of those deportees were anonymous-- they were buried in a mass grave in Fresno. Until Tim Z.Hernandez -- a previous winner of the American Book Award for poetry -- spent years investigating, interviewing families and unearthing records in both Mexico and the United States. His new book, All they Will Call You explores that journey.

Despite Political Differences, Two High School Teachers Find Common Ground

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 16:30:00 PDT

For our series "Start the Conversation," we bring together Californians from different backgrounds and perspectives to talk about their political differences, but to also try and figure out common ground. For high school teachers like Brandon Johnson and Ysidro Valenzuela, the latest presidential election and its aftermath have brought many more questions than usual from their students. The two teachers answer those questions from different political perspectives: Brandon is a former marine who identifies as conservative. He's part of a small minority in the Bay Area that voted for Trump. Ysidro is liberal and supported Sanders, though he lives in the more politically conservative Central Valley.

Ask anybody in the California mariachi scene, and they'll know the Morales family from the Central Valley town of Delano.
