Monday Must Reads: ALCO Sheriff to Stop Patrolling Oakland Streets; Gov. Brown OK’s $25.6 Million in Redevelopment Funds for Oak to Ninth

News stories that East Bay progressives and environmentalists shouldn’t miss:

1. Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern is pulling his deputies off Oakland streets because the city has refused to pay workers’ comp for his staffers who are injured in the line of duty, the Trib reports. Ahern’s announcement followed the injury of a sheriff’s deputy who was shot in the foot during a traffic stop in the Fruitvale district. The city had hired sheriffs’ deputies to patrol Oakland streets as a temporary stopgap measure until OPD can hire and train more recruits.
