Herschel “Boog” Powell, a Midwest League All-Star outfielder in the Oakland Athletics’ system, has been suspended for 50 games following a positive test for a banned amphetamine under baseball’s minor league drug program.
San Francisco firefighters have knocked down a fire at a Burger King restaurant on Powell Street between Ellis and Eddy streets in downtown San Francisco, a fire dispatcher said.
The discovery of a suspicious object near the Powell Street BART station in San Francisco temporarily shut down streets and stopped Bay Area Rapid Transit service through the area.
Seven people were hospitalized Wednesday morning following a San Francisco Municipal Railway cable car accident, a Muni spokesman said.
The group Anonymous said they already plan to hold another protest next Monday and will continue to do so until they “get what they want.”
One of San Francisco’s cable car lines will be partially shut down starting Monday as part of an ongoing rehabilitation and maintenance project.
