Monday, December 12, 2016

LAND, Calif. (AP) - A popular sound engineer, a young attorney and a woman described as a visionary were among the people killed in a fire that engulfed a dance party inside an Oakland warehouse. The Alameda County Sheriff's Department has released the names of all 36 victims. They ranged in age from 17 to 61.Federal officials were investigating the fire's cause.Here's a closer look at who the victims were:ATTORNEY WITH A DESIRE TO HELPNick Walrath, 31, was recently hired as an attorney with the San Francisco law firm Durie Tangri.He texted his girlfriend, Alexis Abrams-Bourke, from inside the burning structure, saying there was a fire and that he loved her.She spoke between sobs as she described him as a wonderful person who was open and vulnerable and goofy and generous."I feel like my future has been ripped from me," she said.The two moved together from New York City several years ago after Walrath got a job as a clerk for the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He spent a year working as a judicial law clerk for the federal district court in San Francisco.

Names of seven victims released in Oakland fire; criminal investigators on scene - Los Angeles Times

Monday, December 05, 2016

Alameda County prosecutors have assigned criminal investigators to probe the fire at an Oakland warehouse that claimed at least 33 lives.Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf announced the move as the grim search continued. As of 3 p.m., searchers had covered only about 35% of the burned building.  Schaaf did not provide many details about a criminal probe, which would be handled by the office of Dist. Atty. Nancy E. O'Malley. She said she was not authorized to announce a formal criminal investigation but said district attorney’s investigators are on the scene actively reviewing evidence.“It is far too early to have suspicions about what caused this fire,” the mayor said. Authorities also released the names of seven victims of the warehouse fire as the death toll rose to 33: Cash Askew, 22; David Cline, 23; Nick Gomez-Hall, 25; Sara Hoda, 30; Travis Hough, 35; Donna Kellogg, 32; and Brandon Chase Wittenauer, 32.One of the victims is a 17-year-old minor whos

Rabid Raiders fans finally have a team to get behind ... but for how long? - FOXSports.com

Monday, November 21, 2016

Raiders' return from L.A. While those seats have been tarped over during Raiders games since 2013, the city of Oakland and Alameda County still owe close to $100 million on that misbegotten renovation.With that debacle in mind, mayor Libby Schaaf has repeatedly stated that the city will not engage in a bidding war with Nevada, where state legislators recently voted to raise hotel taxes to come up with $750 million toward a new Raiders stadium.All is not lost in Oakland. Based on his track record in striking stadium deals, never underestimate Mark Davis’s ability to spin gold into straw. And there’s no guarantee that Davis will clear the 24-owner hurdle. True, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who exerts a powerful influence over his peers on matters of business and marketing strategy, has endorsed the move: “Thi

Margaret E. Dougherty, former editor of Maryland Magazine, dies - Baltimore Sun

Monday, September 05, 2016

War II, she enlisted in the Navy with the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES) program. She worked in communications at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station near Philadelphia and at Alameda Naval Air Station in Alameda, Calif., where she also held the positions of air transport officer and personnel officer.She was discharged in 1948 and remained in the Naval Reserve until retiring in 1975 with the rank of captain.She worked three years as a secretary for National Geographic magazine and later joined The Baltimore Sun, where she worked closely with maritime editor Helen Delich Bentley. Miss Dougherty was appointed chief of publications in the 1960s for the Maryland Port Authority."Operating almost inconspicuously from her desk in the offices of the state agency, the diminutive brunette with the easy smile combines a knowledge of the shipping industry with the talents of a writer and artist to help create, produce and distribute a tremendous variety of publications," wrote The Sun in a 1966 profile.Miss Dougherty oversaw production of the agency's booklets and brochures — from conception to working with writers, artists, printers and even directing circulation to maritime interests in 100 countries around the world.She wrote and edited what was then called the Port of Baltimore Bulletin, and also arranged promotional events, gave talks on the port before civic organizations and provided oral commentary to visitors taking harbor tours.In 1967, then-Gov. Spiro T. Agnew announced the launching of Maryland Magazine to help promote the state's history, culture and people. John T. McCarthy, who had been editor of the Maryland Conservationist, was selected as editor, with Miss Dougherty as associate editor.Miss Dougherty became editor the next year of the quarterly publication, which was published by the state Department of Economic and Community Development.Directing a small staff, she guided a publication that became known not only for its editorial content but also for its photography and typography — showcased on high-quality glossy paper."I really did everything from A to Z," she told The Sun in 1982. "I had to handle personnel, all the administration, the subscription fulfillment system, the supplies … supervise everything. A lot of it didn't have anything to do with what

He said more than half of the warehouse had to still be searched.“We have contacted every family member,” Sergeant Kelly said. “We have sat down with them. We have cried with them. We have spent hours and hours with them.”The toll already makes the fire among Oakland’s deadliest. The Oakland Hills fire of 1991 killed 25 people and destroyed 3,000 houses.• What was the warehouse used for?The fire tore through a two-story structure called the Ghost Ship, in the Fruitvale neighborhood, which was used as a live-in and work space for a loose tribe of striving artists.Images of the interior captured before Friday showed it cluttered with art, antiques and musical instruments beneath exposed wooden rafters.The building had a permit to operate as a warehouse, but not a residence or party site. It had been under investigation for code violations.A criminal investigation was opened on Sunday.• How did the fire unfold? On Friday, dozens of people congregated for an event with electronic music.Firefighters arrived just before midnight to a roaring fire and thick smoke p
