Thanks for putting this article out, people just don't know about the magic that happens at the roller rink. Getting the word out in the community will hopefully help us keep these valuable resources alive!!
What a shame that, in an otherwise lovely article, Richards failed to mention the Berkeley Path Wanderers Association map, Berkeley's Pathways (www.berkeleypaths.org), nor the Walk Oakland map that shows all the paths in Oakland (http://www.rufusguides.com/oakland.html). Nor did Richards credit Charles Fleming, author of the Hidden Stairways: East Bay. A sharp editor would have caught that incomplete reference.
What a shame Richards didn't mention the Berkeley Path Wanderers Association map, Berkeley's Pathways (http://berkeleypaths.org/), in her article. Oakland also has a map, Walk Oakland, that shows all the paths.(http://www.amazon.com/Walk-Oakland-Guide-Rufus-Graphics/dp/1882276167)
Nor did Richards credit Charles Fleming, the author of Hidden Paths: East Bay: A Walking Guide to the Hidden Staircases of Berkeley and Oakland. A sharp editor would have caught the incomplete reference to the book.
The Berkeley Path Wanderers, http://berkeleypaths.org/ , sell a map showing all of Berkeley's public paths and stairways. They also lead two free walks each month and work to maintain and improve Berkeley's path network.
Thanks for this great write-up! The City of Oakland and local advocates are actively working to fund repairs and improvements to these stairs and pathways. If you are interested in supporting this work and helping to prioritize fixes you are welcome to attend the monthly Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee meeting (open to the public) and have your voice heard: http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/PW…

I thinking not many people understand, that if you do not get your animal fixed this can happen with any species. Don't get one if you can't get it fixed nor keep it's shots up too date. I applaud these groups as the cat population is through the roof. I have had too TNR in Castro Valley and Hayward. I continue to feed them as some are now 12 yrs. old. Annie

I am so curious, which bike did you settle on? I am eyeing the Linus Dutchi and Public myself, also the Globe Daily looks real nice (but comes with a hefty tag). I don;t want a used bike because my last one was used and I ended up spended too much on broken spokes and other updates.
Alex Hackett, cats are killing machines. They are non-native predators introduced into a foreign ecosystem, so of course they are decimating wildlife. Would it make it more meaningful for you if these birds were burrowing owls, as are found in the Presidio, instead of, say, sparrows and blackbirds?
To see people value non-native predatory cats over native wildlife makes me sick.
We have been plan to open a cat cafe and we actually were thinking of open in SF but i just heard that two veterans are going to open it. So we are thinking to open in Concord area or Hayward area since SF and Oakland cat cafes are opening.
Terrific! Now that dog breeders are realizing that vanity breeding is ultimately cruelly dangerous to the dogs, the cat world is taking up the slack. Humans just can't help but f__k things up, can they?
The former Bakesale Betty location at Broadway and Grand has been vacant for years now. Perhaps Alison BaraKAT would be interested in a sublease.
How about the ground-floor commercial space at 7th & Broadway? Serve donuts, and there's a ready-made, steady clientele with the police headquarters and a pot dispensary across the street. Just don't de-claw the cats; they're there to keep an eye on the cops, and if need be to remind them to respect the locals! ;-)
They might also help to chase away the rats that hang out under the freeway, making the Broadway undercrossing a bit less forbidding, and increasing foot traffic to Jack London. We need this here more than they do in Temescal.
I would love to have one up here in the Everett Washington State area I love cats but with pet deposit being so high I could never get one and this would take care of my kitty cravings
trap neuter return does help bird populations since it controls feral cat population growth, no new kittens adding to the population means less feral cats, which means less dead birds in the long run.
Have you considered the open spot at 49th and Telgraph? It has large windows and high ceilings and I think the neighbors (i.e. my roommates and I) would love it!
