Alameda police officers arrested two men for possession of loaded firearms the night before Thanksgiving. 

Alameda Police Department (APD) officers confiscated the two firearms, one stolen, along with an extended clip, from the vehicle during the arrest. Jeffry Aguilar and Jowuan Jones, both 23, were arrested for multiple charges. Both men were charged with possession of a firearm. 

At a public hearing during Monday’s meeting, Alameda Point Partners (APP) asked the Planning Board to allow changes that would scale back both the building on Block 11 on Seaplane Lagoon and the adjacent Waterfront Plaza. 

Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is hosting an open house at 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Alameda Wellness and Medical Respite Center on McKay Avenue. APC will present the draft Good Neighbor Policy and provide updates on the design and development of the project. A question-and-answer session will follow along with a brief tour of the facility. 

An Alameda resident and student at Bishop O’Dowd High School, Abigail Gonzalez, recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to participate in the 2019 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. The annual gathering promotes social justice and solidarity by challenging people to participate in caring for others. The main talking points of the weekend were climate justice and immigration.

As the ball sailed through the uprights, and the clock struck zero, the Encinal Jets had done something they hadn’t done in nine years — secured a place in the North Coast Section championship. Senior John Brindley’s 17-yard field goal gave No. 1 seed Encinal an enthralling 24-21 win over No. 4 seed De Anza High of Richmond last Friday night at Willie Stargell Field in Alameda.

“I just zoned everything out, took my steps and kicked the ball,” Brindley said. “I kicked it. I just waited, and then I didn’t know how to react after. I just ran around.”
