    SANTA CLARA (CBS SF/AP) — It feels like the story comes up before every match between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers vowed after his 2005 draft day snub that the 49ers would be more disappointed for passing him up than he would going to the Packers. While that proclamation has been true for most of the past decade-plus, Rodgers has been the one dealing with disappointment in the playoffs with three losses.

    Golda Schultz has been spending a lot of time with Mozart lately: she started 2022 in New York, singing the role of the Countess Almaviva in the Metropolitan Opera’s current revival of the composer’s “Le Nozze di Figaro.” But she’s also thinking a lot about music by women — in particular, the music she’ll be singing this weekend at Herbst Theatre in her first recital for San Francisco Performances. Accompanied by pianist Jonathan Ware, Schultz’s era-spanning program features works by influential female composers Nadia Boulanger, Clara Schumann, Emilie Mayer and Rebecca Clarke, along with a newly commissioned piece by South African composer Kathleen Tagg and librettist Lila Palmer. In a call from New York, Schultz said the project began a while back, when she and Ware were performing an all-Schubert recital. Listening to the composer’s “Gretchen am Spinnrade,” set to text by Goethe, inspired a new train of thought. “I was fascinated by how these two men had been so able to write the obsession of new love in a young woman,” she explained. “That first experience, how it...

The San Francisco vigil, organized by Dear Community, began at 6 p.m, the same time the New York vigil organized by Asians Fighting Injustice at the Red Steps in Times Square. Friends of Go, as well as San Francisco City Attorney David Chiu, spoke at the local event. “Michelle was a high school classmate of mine and she lit up every room she was in,” said Gary Tan at the vigil in San Francisco, according to ABC7 News.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers memorably vowed after his 2005 draft day snub that the San Francisco 49ers would be more disappointed for passing him up at No. 1 than he would be at sliding to No. 24.

    The productive defender got a little banged up on Sunday in the playoff win at Dallas. What’s the latest on San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner? San Francisco 49ers’ head coach Kyle Shanahan has had a pretty good defensive unit the last few years. There were obvious questions this offseason when coordinator Robert Saleh moved on to become the head coach of the New York Jets. Enter DeMeco Ryans and this side of the ball performed efficiently. Getting defensive end Nick Bosa back after he missed all but two games a year ago was huge. In 2020, San Francisco allowed the fifth-fewest total yards in the league. This year, only two teams gave up fewer yards per game. The Niners took their 10-7 record to Dallas on Sunday and Shanahan’s club held on for a 23-17 victory. But fourth-year linebacker Fred Warner went down in the second quarter with an ankle injury. He had already racked up five tackles and did not return to the contest. Understandably, there was concern that the team’s leading tackler each of these last four...

Bayless took to Twitter to say the Cowboys didn’t play well enough to win, but was upset about the controversial way the game was ended. “I’ll be the first to admit the Cowboys didn’t deserve to win after committing 14 penalties,” Bayless wrote. “BUT THEY DID DESERVE THAT LAST SHOT TO PULL OFF THE MIRACLE.

    Get familiar with the name DeMeco Ryans because the defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers is making news and doing things and causing all sorts of attention to be heaped upon him now. Let’s start with the fact Ryans did some good work with the 49ers defense this year. The unit finished the season tied for ninth in scoring, allowing 21.5 points per game, which was the same as the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks. So Top 10 in scoring defense. That’s good.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The scramble for COVID testing amid the omicron surge continued Friday, but some relief may soon be on the way in the form of free self-testing kits delivered to your home courtesy of the federal government. Starting next Wednesday, you can log onto a new website called covidtests.gov to order four free testing kits per household. The rapid antigen tests will be sent by mail within 7-12 days after ordering. All that’s required is your name and address.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Car break-ins are a huge problem in San Francisco, but now thieves are also targeting license plates and victims are receiving parking citations. Katie Lyons recently found her car without a front license plate. She believes someone unscrewed it right in front of her home in the Marina. READ MORE: French Bulldog Stolen at Gunpoint During Castro Valley Armed Robbery“Today I realized I was getting parking tickets, because I got a ticket on my car and I went to pay it, and I saw four tickets that I did not get,” Lyons said. She made the discovery online when she entered her license plate. She realized someone stuck her plate on a similar white Audi, and that car received multiple street cleaning and expired meter citations in Nob Hill in the last week. “It’s a violation, it’s a sense of violation that you can’t even park your car in front of your house without your license plate being stolen,” she said. “That’s actually what I first thought when I saw my license plate...

    A decaying, 122-year-old Victorian marketed as “the worst house on the best block” of San Francisco has sold for nearly $2 million — an eye-catching price that the real estate agent said was the outcome of overbidding in an auction. A developer’s $1.97 million cash offer for the 2,158-square-foot property in the Noe Valley neighborhood was finalized last week. On the social media page Zillow Gone Wild, some commenters marveled at the price while others questioned the value of a house with boarded-up windows, peeling paint and an unstable foundation. One commenter joked: “It actually has a parking space. No wonder it sold for almost 2 million!” The property sold at several hundred thousand dollars higher than other comparable fixer-uppers in the area as a result of a complex conservatorship sale, said Todd Wiley, who represented the seller. Wiley said a judge approved the sale of the house after its elderly owner was placed in a conservatorship. The man’s family, concerned about the way he was living, hired a licensed fiduciary to handle the sale with the proceeds going to...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- According to the latest San Francisco data, over 1,500 San Franciscans are testing positive for COVID-19 every day. The age group with the highest number of infections are 12- to 17-year-olds."I think a bunch of kids now are going to outdoor parties because nothing has changed in school other than the fact that omicron started," said 12-year-old Benjamin Katzman.Benjamin is right about one of the main contributing factors to this increase."Probably there is a level of mixing that is happening with 12- to 17 year-olds that is not happening as much in the younger ages. Much of that mixing probably happened during the winter break," said Dr. Naomi Bardach, Professor of Pediatrics and Vice Chair of Health Research for the Department of Pediatrics.RELATED: Exposed to COVID or tested positive?

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — A big win for the 49ers meant big celebrations at bars and pubs across the Bay Area on Sunday. In Arlington, Texas, where the wild card was played, there was a sea of red jerseys in an AT&T Stadium parking lot where hundreds of Niners fans tailgated before the game. “It’s crazy out here. You don’t even understand there’s so many Niners fans out here and we’ve got a few of these Dallas fans bringing it once in a while. There’s a couple of them but we’re taking over,” said 49ers fan Jesse Mendez. RELATED: 49ers Win Wild Card as Time Runs Out for Cowboys Mendez and his buddies arrived in Texas on Friday.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — A new San Francisco gym is offering a workout experience that, by accident, has become appealing during the era of COVID-19. Trigg Hutchinson is a serious power lifter and doing squats while hefting more than 300 pounds requires a lot of concentration. Hutchinson is one of the first members of a new gym called The Yard in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights. The space is separated into eight individual workout pods, each containing a bench, rack and free weights that are rented out by reservation only. “What I do is really a solo activity,” Hutchinson said. “I don’t like people walking around in my field of vision so this physical space here gives me an opportunity to get some distance and kind of focus on what I’m doing.” The two-story gym holds only 16 people at a time but owner Joe Cicero says he came up with the idea two years before the pandemic hit. “It’s actually inspired by the traditional barber shop model where the owner is renting out chairs to independent contractors,” he said. “That’s...
    If playoff games are decided by the little things, the details, then neither team deserved to win Sunday’s 49ers-Cowboys contest, which lived up to the Wild Card billing. Still, San Francisco beat the Cowboys 23-17 Sunday in Arlington, Texas in a contest that was controlled by San Francisco early and chaos late. Some say that a “win is a win”. They’ll suggest that the Niners clear the slate and move onto the next round, a matchup with the Packers in Green Bay with confidence. And while, indeed, the 49ers prefer their fate to the Cowboys’, I believe the identity of a team — the quality of a squad — lies in those margins, those details, particularly in the biggest moments of the game. If I’m right, San Francisco better savor Sunday’s win — it’ll be their last this season. I hate to be negative after the Niners’ first road playoff win since 2014. I really do! But the truth is that Sunday’s game will be remembered for years — for all the wrong reasons. ...

    The San Francisco 49ers are off to Lambeau Field to face the No. 1-seeded Green Bay Packers in the NFL divisional playoff round. The 49ers, who made it into the playoffs by virtue of an overtime win at the Los Angeles Rams a week ago, survived Sunday despite nearly blowing a 16-point, fourth-quarter lead. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who also had a bad overthrow of an open Brandon Aiyuk in the third quarter, finished 16-of-25 for 172 yards. Deebo Samuel, the 49ers’ offensive catalyst, ran for 72 yards (10 carries) and added 38 yards receiving (three catches).

The San Francisco 49ers are heading to the Divisional Round to face the Green Bay Packers after defeating the Dallas Cowboys 23-17. The Niners had a tall order in a road trip to AT&T Stadium, but a hot start and some key plays down the stretch allowed San Francisco to hang on as the Cowboys attempted a comeback.

However, there were two major injuries to two of San Francisco’s stars in linebacker Fred Warner and defensive end Nick Bosa. Bosa suffered a concussion in the first half, while Warner suffered an ankle injury in the second half. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan quickly addressed Warner’s injury in the post-game press conference. When the linebacker went down, he was grabbing at...

The 49ers overcame an interception by Jimmy Garoppolo when they led by 13 in the fourth quarter. Prescott ran for a touchdown to get within a score, and had a chance to drive Dallas to a go-ahead score.
