A prayer vigil was held for a murdered south Stockton family in front of their home this evening.

Neighbors and friends gathered in front of the home on the 3100 block of South Laurel Street with candles and balloons, praying in spanish. Another set of candles had been left earlier in the day next to the porch of the residence.

One neighbor who wished to remain anonymous stated the deceased was her friend, a woman in her 50's, the woman's husband, and the child's father. While news of the other two survivors in stable condition offers little comfort, neighbors say they do not feel safe in their neighborhood at night any more.

Heroes at Heart


For 5 year old miles, his struggle is already of heroic proportions.

Miles suffers from leukemia, a type of cancer in the blood or bone marrow that is a rapid increase in immature white blood cells. In 2000, over a quarter-million children were diagnosed with the disease, and 200,000 died from it.

Miles was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 1. He is now currently in remission. His very young life has been an every day battle, but today his life is celebrated in a different kind of battle.

Today, the city of San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City for Miles, a huge Batman fan, thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation. 12,000 volunteers signed up for the event, even the San Francisco Police Department to make little Miles Batman for a day.

Miles, who lives in Siskiyou County, had no clue what he was in for today, only that he was going on a special trip. The Police Chief himself issued a call to Miles, or Batkid, as villains began to rob banks, set traps, and kidnap mascots all around the city.

Miles was paraded around town in full costume in a sleek "Batmobile" to fight evil villains in costume and rescue damsels in distress. At the end of his adventure, he was presented with the Key to the City by the mayor in front of city hall, as San Francisco Police Officers led villains such as the Riddler and the Penguin away in handcuffs.

Volunteers lining the streets of San Francisco held signs, cheering on Miles during his adventure. Some even cried. One woman said it was "incredible to see everyone pull together to make this little boy's dream a reality. It really shows how everyone can do something, even the littlest to help."

If you'd like to help, you can always donate to the Make a Wish Foundation, to help make another child's dream come true.

He then escorted her to the back of the shopping center where he coerced her to perform sexual acts on him.

Brink was identified as a suspect and interviewed. Authorities later booked him on charges of child molestation, kidnap for a sexual crime and a variety of others.

St Louis - Colin Kaepernick received the starting nod from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh earlier in the week, and was able to practice with the first team exclusively for an extended period for the first time even with Alex Smith healthy. Although Kaepernick played okay it was no where up to the level of greatness he has shown the two previous weeks. On paper a game between the Niners (8-3-1) and Rams (5-6-1) seemed to be overwhelmingly in favor of San Fran, but we all know the NFL can be as unpredictable as a David Akers field goal attempt is these days. For the second time this season the two teams would enter into an extra period and almost end in a tie. Rams rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein would boot a 54 yard field goal with just 26 seconds left to beat the Niners 16-13.

"I was just trying to make the kick and not think about anything," Zuerlein said. "I was pretty relieved, you know."

Kaepernick made two big errors that were huge in the outcome of the game. In the third quarter he would be penalized for intentional grounding in the end zone while under pressure. This made the score 10-2 with the Niners in front. His second error came in the fourth quarter when an errant pitch out would be picked up by Rams rookie Janoris Jenkins and returned for a TD. St. Louis converted the two-point conversion to tie the game at 10. Both teams would then exchange field to lead them into OT.

Our defense played a great game," Kaepernick said "I gave up those points that were on the scoreboard for the Rams so that's 100 percent my fault."

With just over five minutes left in OT David Akers missed a 51 yard field goal that would have ended the game. Akers, after having one of the best all-time season by a kicker in NFL history last year, has struggled this year going just 7 for 15 on field goals over 40 yards.

"I probably missed it by 3-4 inches to the right," Akers said. "I just feel horrible for letting my teammates, the organization and the fans down."

The 49ers will have a couple big decisions to make over the next week. 1) Do you stick with Kaepernick or go back to Alex Smith against the Miami Dolphins. 2) The Niners have already tried out a few kickers and I have no doubt they will be inviting a few more into camp. I would not be surprised if we see a new kicker starting within the next week or two in a San Francisco uniform.

San Francisco - The Giants have agreed to a contract with center fielder Angel Pagan. The contract is for 4 years and worth an estimated $40 million dollars.

The 31-year-old Pagan batted .288 with eight home runs, 56 RBIs and a San Francisco-best 15 triples in his first season with the Giants. Pagan said late in the season and again after the World Series parade that he hoped to return, but wanted to test free agency and sought some job security in the form of a multi-year deal.

The Giants have now signed Pagan and Jeremy Affeldt two of their big free agents. Next up on the list for General Manager Brian Sabean will be NLCS Marco Scutaro.
