Raymond Chow and his attorney, who is known for outrageous press conferences, will appear in front of a federal judge on Thursday morning.

The hearing starts at 10 a.m.
If you hear some loud buzzing in the skies over Hayward Thursday morning, take a second to look up. Nearly 30 pilots will take off in rapid succession for the 50th annual Hayward Air Rally.

At 10:30 a.m. in Oakland, Children’s Fairyland will host a citywide “Baby Shower.” It’s part of a new Oakland campaign to boost the vocabulary of children.
If you want to go to a ballgame Thursday evening, but don’t want to pay big league prices, how about a Little League game?
