STEVE JOBS’ CHILDHOOD HOME EYED FOR PRESERVATION: LOS ALTOS  (AP) — The childhood home of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs could soon be preserved as a historical site in Silicon Valley.

The Los Altos Historical Commission is scheduled Monday to discuss a proposal to give protected status to the single-story, ranch house where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968.

Commissioner Sapna Marfatia says the property is historically significant because it’s where Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak built the first 50 Apple 1 computers in 1976.

The first partnership for “Apple Computer Co.” was established at the Crist Drive home in Los Altos before the company relocated to nearby Cupertino.

The San Jose Mercury News reports the former Jobs home would have to be preserved as it currently stands if added to the city’s historic resources inventory.

 MAN, 24, ARRESTED FOR SAN JOSE CRASH THAT KILLED 2: SAN JOSE  (AP) — San Jose police have arrested an alleged gang member on suspicion of murder for crashing into and killing two women while fleeing police on Labor Day.

Officials on Saturday announced the arrest of 24-year-old Danny Darnell Coleman Jr. of East Palo Alto.

Coleman was arrested in Union City on Friday, nearly three weeks after the early-morning crash that killed 63-year-old Carmen Zavala and 62-year-old Cristina De Leon Castro, both of San Jose.

The San Jose Mercury News ( reports two women were on their way to work at San Jose International Airport when their car was broadsided by a Mercedes-Benz sedan. When police arrived, the Mercedes driver was gone.

Officials say investigators later determined the Mercedes driver was Coleman and that he had been fleeing police shortly before the collision.
