Keep in mind though, that pets are a handful, and they require a great deal of attention.

Only rarely does a legislative compromise that waters down an originally tough proposed law end up creating something better. That appears to be what Gov. Gavin Newsom and state Sen. Richard Pan have now accomplished. This compromise came about because of an off-the-cuff remark Newsom made in early June while talking to reporters in a […]

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — If this happened to be Madison Bumgarner’s final start for San Francisco, he left another lasting memory. Even if everybody wound up groggy by the time this game finally ended. Bumgarner pitched nine superb innings but had nothing to show for it aside from an ovation of sheer appreciation, and the San Francisco Giants rallied past the New York Mets on Donovan Solano’s 16th-inning RBI single for a 3-2 win Thursday night. The Giants finished their season-best sixth straight victory hours after Bumgarner wrapped up his longest start since a nine-inning shutout against Arizona in 2016. The Mets went ahead on rookie Pete Alonso’s 32nd home run leading off the 16th before San Francisco made it 2-2 on Brandon Crawford’s double in the bottom half. Solano delivered against Chris Mazza (0-1) for his second career walkoff hit and RBI. New York had its four-game winning streak snapped. Williams Jerez (1-0) worked two innings for his first career win. The Mets followed a season-best 14 runs and 17 hits in Wednesday’s 14-4 road win against the Twins with tough loss. Bumgarner and Noah Syndergaard dueled to no-decisions, neither willing to give this one away. The Giants relievers did their part, too. Tony Watson worked a 1-2-3 12th after Reyes Moronta’s perfect 11th. Will Smith escaped a bases-loaded jam in the 10th with a strikeout of Jeff McNeil. Bumgarner allowed five hits and walked one in what could be the countdown on his decorated tenure for the Giants if they decide to trade him before this month’s deadline. The lefty ace allowed McNeil’s leadoff single in the ninth then was initially credited with getting J.D. Davis to ground into a double play, but the Mets challenged the call and it was overturned on replay after 48 seconds. MadBum still got out of it and received a rousing ovation as he walked off the mound. He threw just 94 pitches. Alonso’s groundout in the first put the Mets ahead. San Francisco tied it on Kevin Pillar’s sacrifice fly in the fourth. Both teams had other chances, but each starter consistently worked out of jams. Syndergaard and Bumgarner had previously matched up June 4 at Citi Field with neither earning a decision but also in the 2016 NL wild card game during which Bumgarner tossed a four-hitter in the 3-0 win and Syndergaard pitched seven shutout innings. Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, owns a 7-0 record with a 1.63 ERA lifetime against the Mets including that wild-card gem. “What an incredible performance that Bum gave us that night,” manager Bruce Bochy said. Bumgarner’s 21st start of the season matched his total from an injury-shortened 2018 season after he only made 17 starts in 2017 when he also was hurt. Shortstop Brandon Crawford’s reliable, sparkling defense backed Bumgarner and the bullpen all night. Syndergaard, who has won his last four decisions, allowed one run on six hits over seven innings, struck out eight and walked one. The Giants returned home from a four-game sweep at Colorado having won eight of nine overall. POSEY’S KS Buster Posey recorded his first career four-strikeout game, going 1 for 7 with a single in the 15th. STRETCH AGAIN Fans took to heart the request for a “14th-inning stretch” requested by public address announcer Renel Brooks-Moon. PIGEON PARTY Close to two dozen pigeons gathered in left field during the first inning unfazed by any balls off the bat. Members of the grounds crew believe the birds — who flew away after about 10 minutes — overate some fresh, high-quality grass seed. TRAINER’S ROOM Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler, sidelined by shoulder fatigue, was scheduled to play catch for a second straight day. “Playing catch and continuing to play catch will dictate a lot what goes on next, so we’ll just kind of feel him out day to day and see where we’re at,” manager Mickey Callaway said. He named RHP Walker Lockett his Saturday starter in Wheeler’s place. Giants: Bochy checked with Pablo Sandoval and was prepared to give him a break but the third baseman reported he was fine to play after seven straight games. Sandoval received the Heart & Hustle award in a pregame ceremony on the field. UP NEXT RHP Jacob deGrom (5-7, 3.21 ERA) pitches Friday night for New York opposite Giants RHP Tyler Beede (3-3, 5.44) in his 14th career appearance and with San Francisco having gone 7-2 in his outings and winning five of his last six. Beede pinch hit in the 14th Thursday. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After their dominant start to the season, the Minnesota Twins were starting to sag a bit. With one powerful swing Thursday through that thick midsummer night air, Eddie Rosario provided quite the jolt. The pinch-hitting Rosario produced a go-ahead, three-run homer on the first pitch from reliever Yusmeiro Petit in the seventh inning, and the Twins beat Oakland 6-3 to stop a five-game winning streak by the Athletics. “He does love being in these situations,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “I think he fully expected to hit a home run.” Rosario gave the Twins their first pinch-hit homer of the year and the third of his career. Mitch Garver and C.J. Cron each went deep in the eighth to pad the lead, and Taylor Rogers pitched two scoreless innings for his 14th save in 17 tries to ensure the end of a season-high three-game losing streak by the Twins. “I saw everybody kind of put their heads down in the dugout. That moment lifted everybody up, and that’s what I was trying to do,” said Rosario, who screamed at his exuberant teammates as he ran along the first base line. “Keep everybody together and pump everyone up.” The A’s, who have surged into the wild card race with 12 wins in their last 15 games, used an RBI double by Khris Davis in the fourth inning and Jurickson Profar’s two-run home run in sixth off Kyle Gibson to take a 3-1 lead. The Twins trailed entering the seventh against A’s starter Mike Fiers, who was 7-0 with a 2.09 ERA over his previous 12 turns starting with his no-hitter on May 7. Luis Arraez, the rookie second baseman who has provided an unexpected midseason spark, doubled with one out before Miguel Sanó drew a walk. Fiers was pulled for Petit (2-2), the most-used pitcher in the major leagues with 49 appearances, and Rosario crushed the right-hander’s 90 mph fastball off the videoboard facade beneath the second deck in right-center while admiring the trajectory before his trot around the bases. Petit said he tried to aim down and away, but the ball caught a little too much of the middle of the plate. “Pretty good pitch,” he said. That was Rosario’s 21st home run, his first since June 23 due to a stint on the injured list for a sprained left ankle, and he obliged the Target Field crowd of 28,432 with a curtain call. “Just about everybody was on the top step,” said Gibson (9-4), who finished seven innings for the victory. “You can feel those moments, and that was going to be the inning we were going to do it. It was pretty exciting to see it off the bat.” With Cleveland on a five-game winning streak to whittle the AL Central lead to four games, the smallest since May 19, the Twins badly needed this jolt from Rosario, who was held out of the original lineup along with All-Star shortstop Jorge Polanco for pre-planned rest. Center fielder Byron Buxton has also been notably absent this week because of concussion-like symptoms, and the atmosphere around the ballpark felt a little off until Rosario’s big swing. “The energy everywhere in the building changed after that,” Baldelli said. FIERS FADES Fiers threw only 89 pitches, but the heat factored into manager Bob Melvin’s decision to remove him. Fiers also had the misfortune of glancing at the scoreboard and seeing Gibson’s pitch count of 106, mistakenly believing it was his. “Mentally, it crushed me,” Fiers said. LOOK OUT! With the first-pitch temperature at 87 degrees on an extra-muggy night, home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott was hit with a double whammy when Cron’s foul ball banged off his mask. He was removed from the game, with Bruce Dreckman moving from second base to fill in after a delay of about 10 minutes. After the unexpected break, Fiers finished the inning with one pitch by completing his strikeout of Cron. BULLPEN SHUFFLE For the second time this week, the Twins dropped a reliever from the roster, this time designating right-hander for assignment Matt Magill, who gave up six unearned runs in one inning Wednesday. Right-hander Kohl Stewart was recalled from Triple-A to take his place, creating a fourth opening on the 40-man roster for potential trades in the next two weeks before the deadline. TRAINER’S ROOM Athletics: All-Star 3B Matt Chapman was on the bench with a sore left ankle, after being removed from the previous game after two innings. Twins: Buxton participated in pregame baseball activities on the field and, according to Baldelli, was “energy-wise doing very well.” He’s eligible to return on Monday, but Baldelli declined to speculate about whether he would be immediately reinstated. UP NEXT Athletics: RHP Chris Bassitt (6-4, 3.98 ERA), who threw six shutout innings last week in a win against Chicago, takes the mound on Friday night. Twins: All-Star RHP Jake Odorizzi (11-4, 3.06 ERA), who is 6-0 with a 2.28 ERA in six starts at home this season, pitches the second game of the series. ___ More AP baseball coverage: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — One of Sacramento’s historic churches wants to add a 50-foot bell tower to its property, with a bell that won’t work. That’s because it will actually be a cell tower. The Shiloh Baptist Church in Oak Park is recognized as a historic landmark in Sacramento. Now this sacred spot may also house a cell tower, built as part of an agreement with Verizon Wireless. Renderings show the proposed cell tower built in the shape of a church bell tower with the sign of a cross decorating the siding. Neighbors recently received notice of the proposed stealth cell tower. READ ALSO: Could A New Cell Tower Hurt You Financially? CBS13 Investigates Jah Ra Elbey lives next door to the church. “My humble opinion, I think that’s being very deceptive,” Elbey said. “Because it’s masking the feature of what it’s supposed to be.” Alan Fulstone lives across the street. “Maybe [I’ll] get better reception,” Fulstone said. “I don’t know.” At the Parkside Community Church in South Land Park, the city approved a faux cell tower made to look like a bell tower in 2007. Caution signs are posted on the tower warning of radiofrequency. Several letters of opposition have been filed with the Sacramento city hall over radiofrequency safety concerns for the proposed Shiloh Baptist Church cell tower. A Sacramento city staff report shows the church application certifies the proposed tower complies with the FCC’s regulations.

A church delivering a Sunday sermon with new cell reception. People who live in this Oak Park neighbor now wonder, will it be a welcome addition or neighborhood nuisance? Sacramento city staff is recommending the church cell tower be approved. A vote is set for next Thursday.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) — On Wednesday evening, two retired childhood friends had a chance encounter with a black bear at the South Lake Tahoe city hall. At around 6 p.m., both men were standing at the front doors and watched in disbelief as the bear casually strolled up the sidewalk slid by them, walking through the automatic doors and making its way for the kitchen. Dave Radke has lived in South Lake Tahoe all his life and says he’s used to bears tearing up his garbage and trees, but this was something new. “That day was very interesting,” Radke said. “Because I watched the bear come over and the bear walked over to those sliding doors walked into the corridor turned around and walked out.” READ ALSO: Deputies Warn Lake Tahoe Tourists About Cornering Bears For Photos His good friend Robert Eplett was busy taking pictures from about six feet away. “Yeah, it was pretty close I had a definite escape route,” Eplett said. “Safety first. If there were cubs involved I would have definitely been shooting through the window.” The bear encounter was the topic of water-cooler conversations at City Hall Thursday morning. “Everybody was kind of like, ‘Did you see the pictures? Did you see what happened? Did you see what happened yesterday?” said communications director Chris Fiore. Earlier this month, a black bear trashed the laundry room of a home in Grass Valley. Anne Bryant with the Bear League says there’s a reason we’re seeing more encounters. “Some of these bears have been born here, they’ve been born under someone’s house, they’ve never known a life without people,” said Bryant. She added that newcomers to bear country aren’t taking precautions like securing trash and creating barriers at homes. They also don’t make noise when they come face to face with a bear to scare them off. Fiore understands the dangers but couldn’t help but joke while looking at the pictures. “I assumed he was here for the council meeting that was on Tuesday that he didn’t show up for but he was just a little late,”  Fiore said. Robert Eplett, who took the photos, says the bear eventually found the kitchen and tore through a screen door surprising the cook. “Besides changing the menu he’s changing other things ..so we heard a yahoo and a get out of here and then it took off across the parking lot. “ Eplett said.
