Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

More we learn about this, the less sense it made for our Mayor to order an audit of OPD training and recruiting young cops. We need better training and selecting for promotion Sgt's and above brass in OPD.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

I think they may be in violation of the City's lobbyist ordinance. If not we need to revise it, this large of a mailer represents significant money. We should know who funded it.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

I got this mailer too, and I find this summary of its inaccuracies, omissions, and outright lies - as well as the apparently phantom nature of "Jobs 4 Oakland" - to be quite newsworthy. Please continue reporting it.

Re: “Choakland: An Exploration of Oakland's Pro-Sports Meltdowns

I don't know where this author is from, but he obviously knows nothing about the history of sports in Oakland. What we see in Oakland is called sports, where anything can happen. Despite the gaffes so noted in the article, there are many examples of the Oakland Raiders and Oakland A's coming through at the end. In fact, there are so many Raider examples, they actually are historical NFL highlights and have their own names (Heidi, Sea of Hands, Ghost to the Post). The Oakland A's won three World Series in the early 70's marked with many big wins at crunch time. What the author fails to realize is that in sports you win some and you loose some. The take away point obviously missed is that you have to first win enough, often enough to be in big games in the first place. Oakland sports teams have clearly done that. Whatever happens after that is what happens, not an symptom of choking!

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Poised to Ban Coal

Thank God the Oakland City Council took the correct action last night and denied Tagami and his cast of opportunists the ability to process coal at the Port of Oakland. Tagami and his cast of local cronies should be ashamed of themselves. For people like Tagami, Marc McClure, Greg McConnell and Jerry Bridges, who all have long histories in Oakland politics, to use the community with inflated promises of jobs is a disgrace. For over a hundred years, people of color have paid a high price, putting their own health at risk doing jobs and living near industries that are slowly killing them. To promote a false choice of jobs or poor health to justify greed and opportunism is borderline criminal.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

Oops! In spite of "deceptive mailers" the city council did the right thing and banned the coal terminal.

How about if EBX sticks to reporting the news instead of trying to make the news?

EBX, is starting to sound a lot like that old (and defunct) Bruce Brugmann publication, Bay Guardian... A one note scream that eventually became quite ignorable.

I'm sick with MS, Fibromyalgia, intractable pain. I am being taken care of in an nursing home. I'm a prisoner of Big Pharma. If I won't be able to get relief from cannabis I feel I won't survive. If only these, this rich bastard could hurt the way I hurt all day everyday. Honestly I would love it.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

This looks like it is falling flat on its face, but the fact that they are okay with extremely deceptive mailers makes me sad for the low regard for democracy that companies have.

Re: “Can I Recycle That?

To Michael Dreyfus-Pai Anyone know about milk and juice cartons? They have layers of paper and plastic, but are often not recyclable.

City of Alameda service tells us to COMPOST (and we can collect our compostables in the cartons) IF THE PLASTIC CAP AND OPENING ARE FIRST REMOVED. Otherwise, recycle.

Re: “Can I Recycle That?

City of Alameda service takes those waxy coated cardboard milk/juice cartons in COMPOST IF YOU REMOVE THE PLASTIC OPENINGS (CAP AND OPENING). Otherwise they tell us to put in recycling.

Re: “Major Pot Company Hit With Six Counts of Securities Fraud

While I was the first to expose MJNA in Salon as a pump and dump, I have to defend Hemp Inc. They bought the largest decorator in N. America and a big building in NC to process hemp into dozens of different products. They have spent a fortune setting up the plant and it's about ready to produce. Bruce has financed local farmers to replace tobacco crops with hemp and knef. Stock proceeds have gone to finance these projects and a major animal sanctuary that is up and running. Not to mention that Bruce has been a major supporter of the Silver Tour (teaching seniors about med mj) , veterans rights groups and a host of other worthwhile causes. I avoided doing business with him for years, but Hemp Inc is a very real company that can lead the hemp revolution in America and Bruce has put his heart and soul into making that happen.
