Here's what you need to know for Monday.
- No plea in Michelle Le case: Giselle Esteban, the woman accused of killing missing nursing student and Mount Carmel High School graduate Michelle Le, waived her right to appear in court Monday morning in Hayward, CA. Her plea has been postponed until Sept. 19.
- Gas prices drop slightly: The average price of a gallon of gas dropped two-tenths of a cent to $3.973 on Monday, up nearly a dollar from this time last year. Refinery issues had been blamed for steady increases in recent weeks. (City News Service)
- Planning Board meeting canceled: The RB Planning Board has canceled its Sept. 15 meeting due to the "inability of a significant number of board members to attend," according to an email from board Chair Teri Denlinger. The chair said she would announce by Tuesday a new date for the meeting.
- Price gouging: Some locals reported being charged much more than they expected for water and ice in the hours after the massive power outage on Thursday. During local emergencies (county officials declared the outage to be one just before 5 p.m. Thursday) it's against the law to hike prices more than 10 percent, and even that increase is only allowed under certain circumstances.
