Re: “Hayward, the City that Banned Happy Hour

Happy hour is still illegal in Hayward for bars unless they serve food. The ban was lifted only for restaurants. Any bars caught serving a happy hour is fined by the HPD.

Re: “Proposition 64 Leads in the Polls. But Insiders Say Weed Prohibition's End is No Sure Thing.

You are wrong Blake. Truth of the matter is that real liberals are about as bad as real republicans.


I'm sorry you are not getting the Holy Grail but in reality it doesn't exist. 64 is better than the current social situation and has built in structures to improve as others are convinced legal cannabis will not destroy the fabric of society.

Re: “Badge of Dishonor: Top Oakland Police Department Officials Looked Away as East Bay Cops Sexually Exploited and Trafficked a Teenager

Great article! I agree mistressmax that there is so much more corruption to be exposed. They also decriminalized prostitution in Australia because the police corruption had finally reached an unacceptable level.Coincidentally , people need to fill out a Parkchester Condominium Employment App , my business partner filled a template version here "".

We used this article in 360BayArea, a podcast that dives into headlines, hashtags and colorful voices from all around the Bay. Check it out at

Re: “Former Black Panther Party Newspaper Staffers Discuss Social and Racial Justice

Congrats on an article well done. Since I was not living in the Bay Area at the time, much of what we read and saw on TV in LA was heavily biased. We knew it, but had no access. Your interview points that out and emphasizes the relevance of improved communications to #BlackLivesMatter and other activist groups. When I later became a social worker with the homeless in San Francisco, my mentor, Betty Crowder, always credited Willa Gray, her professor at San Francisco State and the Black Panthers for her training. Thanks for your hard work. See you at OMCA and Power to the People!

Re: “An East Bay Pimp Trafficked Her Daughter. And the Man that She Turned to For Help Exploited Her For Sex.

I can relate completely I was involved with Patrick for 7 years felt safe he was helping me with my daughter that was subjected to prostitution. I truly thought I had meet my soul mate he was loving attentive and caring but initially he told me we could not act on our feelings until 2 years after my daughter had been his client this time went and passed he contacted me we started meeting again he explained he had made someone pregnant during this time as and felt responsible so he explained there was love but he was not in love. We spent many times together over these years then suddenly he did not respond to any of my calls or texts when I saw this story I felt I really needed to respond he had me believe for years we would be one.If any of you ladies out there need more information please email me at

Re: “Racial Profiling Via

This problem is the same in pacific beach 92109. Thanks to nextdoor. These people are haters with very boring lives that just like to snitch on people. The cops should be called on them for slander. They need to get hobbies r a life. This nextdoor is all bad if you ask me. They have had good people arrested for no reason other than they don't like the way they look,or looked in there store window when they where closed. They are haters. And I'm sorry I every looked at this web site. Good luck oaklanders.

Prop 64 is not legalization. Real liberals are voting against it.

This woman willingly let Mims pipe it. It's completely obvious that she was emotionally invested, realized Mims wasn't, and is reaching for anything she can to damage his reputation. They EXCHANGED sexually charged texts...the moms a thot and this whole story is proof. "This is why I'm hot!" MIMS!

Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

After creating a User/PW, Subscribing to this thread, and posting I see my posting was removed. Strange...

Thanks for nothing. It looks like 81 year old folks are not welcome.

Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

I'm 81 and my wife is 87. We purchased a home in Oakland in 1982, and converted it from a duplex to a 4 plex. We now live in one of the apartments. With rent control as it is we'd be hard pressed to do well financially if we didn't have Social Security checks, such as they are.

Our single unit rents for $1062 and a 2 bedroom apt rents for $1585. Our tenants have nicer furniture than we do. I wonder why?

Re: “The Vanishing Underground: Oakland's Housing Crisis Is Also Displacing its Arts and Music Counterculture

People have to make their own scenes elsewhere. Richmond, Vallejo, Martinez, Stockton, etc all need artists to come and make their town great. And it's always inevitable. The place where this artist collective was at was once a carpet factory, which provided J-O-B-S for people, not just 14 artists living cheaply. It provided real jobs, so people could buy real homes.

Re: “Cooking Other People's Food: How Chefs Appropriate Bay Area 'Ethnic' Cuisine

I appreciate Luke's reviews and articles, not that I always agree with him. If the point of this article was to expose "whitewashed" ethnic cuisine, perhaps he shouldn't have used Asians (hapa Korean guy and Japanese woman) cooking kebabs as an example. Just about every country/culture has it's version of kebabs or meat on a stick. And yes that includes Europeans/white people: Greeks, Italians, Serbs, Russians, etc... You know parts of Europe were once parts of the Ottoman, and Persian empires, and that influenced the cuisine. I get the whitewashing complaint. I'm a white guy, but I was annoyed when they cast Tilda Swinton (still a great actress) to play 'The Ancient One' in 'Doctor Strange'. But as far as "cooking other peoples' food goes": If I'm having dinner in a Korea town restaurant, frankly I don't give a shit if the cook is Mexican, as long as the food tastes good. But that's never a complaint, only when a gringo cooks ethnic food does it become "cultural appropriation". It seems that term has become a default negative in the minds of some of my fellow liberals. I suppose I shouldn't celebrate lunar new year with my Asian family, because it's cultural appropriation. Give me a break. People migrate, cultures and cuisines mix. Having said all that, If white rock star chefs insist on opening these ethnic restaurants, I prefer they at least employ some Thai (as an example) cooks and staff. When I go to a Chinese restaurant, and there's a white waitress who can't speak a word of Chinese, I'm not going to trust the food.
