Welcome to the weekend edition of the Northern California Patch Roundup!
Today we have employees hurt and a lab damaged in an explosion at Amgen, owners of a mobile home park in Pacifica seeking a rent increase of more than 170 percent from 15 mobile home owners, ducks dying in a popular Redwood City pond, and a mom who turned in her son for stealing an elderly woman’s purse.
We also have this heartwarming story from Walnut Creek Patch, about a local woman’s plans to return to Boston to finish the marathon she began last spring:
“In April, Erica Robertson is going to complete what two terrorist bombers wouldn't let her finish last year.”
“Robertson did accomplish one goal in her curtailed run.”
“She raised $11,000 for medical research into Rett syndrome, a disease that has afflicted her 7-year-old daughter, Avery.”
