    Hobee's Restaurant is a Peninsula and South Bay tradition. Its been known as a homey, quirky family-owned restaurant chain (with world famous blueberry coffeecake) since it first opened in 1974. When customers found out that the longtime owners had decided to sell the restaurant, they worried that this relic of old Silicon Valley would become just another part in the regions constantly changing landscape. But Hobees is bucking the Valleys start-up and cash out culture by selling the restaurant to two longtime employees.

    Lately, we?ve been hearing a lot from our listeners when we air profiles of homeless people in California. A couple of weeks ago, many of you responded with offers of help after hearing our special ?Homeless U? - checking back in on the homeless college students we?ve been following. Now we?re going to turn to a story about a group most people think of when they think about homelessness: people who live in tent cities. More of these encampments have been sprouting up in many of California?s largest cities, lining streets and freeway underpasses. You see that a lot in Oakland, a place that prides itself on tackling social issues. But the city?s struggled to help homeless encampments while also trying to welcome new development. KQED?s Devin Katayama spent time with some residents in one of those encampments, and tells us about what makes these homeless communities vulnerable, and also, strong.

    Silicon Valley is a place that?s all about fast-paced change. The Valley?s startup and cash-out culture means companies frequently change owners, get new bosses, and take on new identities. But there are exceptions. As part of a new series we?re calling Family Biz, The California Report?s Ryan Levi tells us about one Silicon Valley restaurant that?s working to keep things the way they?ve been for forty years.
