This will be quick because — it's Saturday night!
We've just published our story on today's exciting and unexpected news: That the DA's office has put us back on its press list.
"Emilie Raguso is welcome to attend future press conferences organized by the office of the Alameda County District Attorney," the office said.
Don't miss the latest on this ongoing saga. And it's not over yet.
We also have fantastic news on the membership front: The Scanner has blown well past 1,200 supporting members, adding about 80 new members since Wednesday. We're now a hair over 1,220.
And today was our largest single-day gain on record.
This is a huge accomplishment — many thanks to all of you who let your contacts know about our work.
The extensive coverage by other members of the media absolutely played a huge role.
In other news
Since Friday night, we've posted on X (in brief) about a medical rescue by BFD after a hiker fell into a creek, and gunfire during a robbery attempt Friday night (story forthcoming).
We are still thinking about how best to share these kinds of updates on other social media channels in addition to X. (We did post on Instagram about the shooting.)
We know this is an issue for many of you. Stay tuned.
