Re: “Our Local Green Future

Wind energy is not always as "green" as it might first appear.

Jim Wiegand (U.S. region rep for SAVE THE EAGLES INTERNATIONAL) estimates that the annual bird/bat mortality rate at Altamont Pass caused by the wind turbines there may be as high as 50,000 per year. This includes hundreds of protected species such as golden eagles, burrowing owls, hawks and falcons.

Not acceptable! And the Alameda County Board of Supervisors needs to re-address this issue in the near future.

Follow the money.

Re: “Oakland's Most Radical Coffee Shop

So much can be expensed with a business that is easy to not ever show a profit. But I like the sentiment.

Re: “East Bay Bike Routes for Urban Explorers

If the 5 Historic Houses bike tour isn't long enough, you can make it a 6 house tour and start at the Dunsmuir-Hellman mansion.

You need to update this list with Mad Oak, Oakland's newest bar that has a beautiful roof top deck that overlooks a spacious urban patio.

Re: “The East Bay's Ten Best Outdoor Dining Experiences

The funny thing at Cheese Board Pizza in Berkeley is the sign on the grassy median where Cal students sit and eat..

it says Do Not Sit on the Median!

Ha! Like anyone is going to pay attention.

Re: “East Bay Bike Routes for Urban Explorers

Good review of some local bike rides! I would, however, quibble with is your suggestion to cross the estuary on the Park Street bridge. That requires either using the narrow pedestrian walkway where you're required to walk your bike, or navigating the unpleasant steel grid bridge deck. A better option is to cross via the Fruitvale Bridge, then follow the 7th Street bike route that takes you under 29th Avenue and onto Embarcadero.

Re: “Can I Recycle That?

Save used stamps off your mail instead of binning things - help reduce landfill, and help out charities as well.
Charities can make great use of collected postage stamps from all over the world, common and rare, to fundraise, by selling them on to philatelists and collectors.
Please, visit our website today to find a charity that you would like to support. The website is updated monthly, and new charities are welcome to be added to the list as well.http://usedstampsforcharity.weebly.com/
Each charity is listed with the address to send donations to, and the date that they last confirmed their details, so that you know how up to date the listing is.
We are a free, volunteer run directory. We make no money or profit from doing this.and are simply posting to help spread the word.
To add your charity, please send us the name of the charity, a postal address for donations to be sent to, and a few words about what your charity does. Don't forget to re-confirm with us monthly so that your charity appears near the top of the list. englishgirl2009-sunshine@yahoo.co.uk

Re: “East Bay Bike Routes for Urban Explorers

Nice comprehensive look at some local rides. In terms of the Pinehurst ride, I like to take BART to Lafayette, depart through the back entrance and cycle over to the Lafayette/Moraga off road bike trail, past St Mary's, then to the EBMUD reservoir and do some birdwatching before cycling through Canyon and the redwoods before coming up Pinehurst and have lunch on the bench where it intersects with Skyline, look at views of Mt Diablo before heading back via Old Tunnel Road, Snake or Shepherd's Canyon. A great 3 or so hour ride with some hills and great vistas, sun and partial shade. I've also written about the Niles Canyon ride here but biker beware!
