Two years after suffering brain damage in a severe beating at Dodger Stadium, San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow has returned home to complete his recovery, his family said on its website this week. But the homecoming was bittersweet, the family said. Stow's  insurance company no longer would pay for his stay at the Centre for Neuroskills in Bakersfield, so the family decided to bring him home to the Santa Cruz area and find ways to help him continue to progress. Stow, a former paramedic who now requires 24-hour care, "could have benefited greatly by staying at CNS longer," the family said on its website.

SAN FRANCISCO -- What's eight feet wide and 12 feet deep and sells for $82,000? As it turns out, a parking spot near San Francisco's AT&T Park. The enclosed parking spot in a condo building in the South Park neighborhood is creating buzz in a town where the housing market is so hot most things fail to startle. But San Francisco Chronicle columnist C.W. Nevius reports Thursday the parking deal might be part of a new trend. The spot was sold last week by Sean Sullivan, an agent with Climb Real Estate who had some experience: He sold another one in the same building for $95,000 during San Francisco's last boom.
