We're back with our weekly photo feature. Enjoy these photos from around the Bay and a little further south as well (how could we resist dog mushing!). These shots highlight what's going on in communities big and small.
Ulises Grijalva, 16, was shot and killed while walking near his family's apartment in Richmond on August 5th. Grijalva's parents, Enriquetta and Jose were presented with their son's jersey—signed by all of the players—during a brief ceremony before Kennedy High's first home football game of the season.
