Victim in hospital, Alameda teen suspect held for attempted murder

An Alameda teen is facing attempted murder charges after he allegedly stabbed a 23-year-old man last Wednesday, June 26, at Jackson Park. 

Francisco William Estigoy, 19, was arraigned last Friday, June 28, at the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in Oakland. There Estigoy was read his two attempted murder charges and learned that he would continue to be held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin without bail. 

City Manager John Russo announced the appointment of Glenn Steiger as Alameda Municipal Power’s (AMP) new general manager. Steiger replaces Girish Balachandran who left the utility in December.

 
Steiger brings more than 40 years of electrical industry experience to his new job. This includes his role as deputy general manager for the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority in Ft. Defiance, Ariz. where he is responsible for all electric and broadband utility operations. 

Putting a parade of more than 150 entrants together requires the patience, passion and expertise of several local volunteers. 

Each year, the Mayor’s Fourth of July extravaganza attracts some 20,000 spectators, or roughly one-third of the city’s population.

 The parade route is longer than three miles, allowing the city to claim it as the longest parade procession ever, which no one bothers to challenge. 

ABC newscaster Michael Finney, a former Alameda resident, is the Grand Marshall at this year’s Alameda Mayor’s Fourth of July Parade. He is well known in the Bay Area for his 7 On Your Side reports on ABC7 News and his Consumer Talk radio show on radio KGO.

The city of Alameda has adopted the Nixle 360 messaging service as its new communication service to send emergency alerts to Alameda residents. 

The Nixle service will allow Alameda police and fire departments to send voice messages to a resident or business’ landline phone and text and voice messages to a resident’s mobile device. The city has been using Nixle to send community announcement alerts for some time, but now the service will handle Alameda’s emergency alert messages.
