British Olympic gold medalist Andrew "Bart" Simpson, 36, has died in an accident on San Francisco Bay. Simpson was the strategist for the Artemis racing team, whose home port is in Alameda. The United States Coast Guard reported that the Artemis Racing AC-72 pitch-poled and flipped near Treasure Island just after 1 p.m. last Thursday. The Coast Guard dispatched vessels from stations San Francisco and Golden Gate. A rescue helicopter was also dispatched.
Next Tuesday, May 21, the City Council is scheduled to take longawaited action to accept ownership of the first — and largest — of four land transfers from the Navy.
Alameda boasts a variety of homes, from owner-occupied single family homes to studio apartment rentals. But there's just not enough housing in the Island City.
