* A sales tax measure that would provide more subsidized child care and preschool for low income children in Alameda County is upheld by the Alameda County Superior Court as the judge sides with local officials arguing simple majority (not two-thirds) required for specific tax placed on ballot by voters. Measure C was approved by 64% of voters in March 2020 but challenged in court. * Mission Valley Rock Company, which operates a sand mining facility in Sunol, must pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to settle allegations it discharged untreated wastewater into Alameda Creek last year, according to the State Water Resources Control Board.
