A New Hampshire woman who called police after stopping in a highway median to help some stranded ducklings plans to fight a $44 ticket.
A study from home mortgage tracker HSH.com indicates the average worker in the San Francisco Bay Area needs to earn $137,129 a year to buy the median-priced home in the region, more than four times the salary required in the five cheapest metropolitan areas: Cleveland ($29k), Pittsburgh ($30k), St. Louis ($31), Cincinnati ($31) and Detroit ($32k).
A Chihuahua found wandering on the middle of a busy Bay Area freeway has been reunited with her family after being rescued by a CHP officer.
For the first time in its history, the Golden Gate Bridge will have to be shutdown for a weekend so work crews can install a new moveable-median barrier, a bridge spokeswoman said.
The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District’s board of directors voted Friday morning to accept the final design and approve the purchase and installation of a moveable median barrier on the bridge.
