In a move expected to influence municipalities around the country, the Fremont City Council this week established minimum-service standards for Internet access provided over the local cable TV system in the Bay Area. The rules require AT&T Broadband Interactive Services, monopoly holder of the city's cable TV franchise, to answer 90% of all service calls within 30 seconds and to fix 95% of service outages within 24 hours.

A woman and her daughter were bludgeoned to death with a 20-inch-long tree branch while walking four miles through the night to a nursing home where the mother worked the early shift, police said Monday. Neighbors who called police at 3 a.m. Sunday said they heard screams and saw a man standing over the women's bodies with the crude club. The man then got into a car with three other people in it and sped away, police said.

Police canvassed the Irvington district of the city Tuesday, hoping to prevent more pipe bombs from being planted in an area where eight bombs have been found in recent days. Police said two pipe bombs were found Monday, and they asked people to be aware and to report any suspicious devices immediately. One of the bombs was found in the window well of a resident's car, and the other was found in the middle of Fremont Boulevard, police say. Neither bomb exploded.

A transgender teen under attack after partygoers discovered that the girl they knew as Lida was anatomically male apparently made a desperate bid for safety by offering a cash ransom if she were let free, a witness testified Monday. Jaron Chase Nabors, who was at the party the night the teenager was killed, said defendant Jason Michael Cazares, 22, told him "that Lida had offered him a couple of grand to get her out of the house." The answer was no, "obviously," Nabors said.

City officials are considering forming a sister-city relationship with Kabul, Afghanistan. Fremont is home to about 10,000 Afghan Americans. A section of the city has even been nicknamed Little Kabul. Afghanistan has no sister cities. The idea was recently proposed by Sister Cities International, a nonprofit corporation that handles such relationships. Fremont's other sister cities include Fukaya, Japan; Puerto Penasco, Mexico; Horta, Portugal; and Jaipur, India.
