Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
My names are Flora Mills and i am a single parent from Washington Dc USA; When i was seeking for a loan, i was scammed several times before i met a friend who directed me to Global Loan Firm . Initially i was afraid to go into the operation but my friend advised me to apply that she also obtained her loan from the company when she needed an urgent loan for business and clearing of debts. Then i took the challenge which actually worked out for me without any form of credit check, no cosigner, no collateral and for just 3% interest rate i got a loan of $80,000 after paying the fee they asked for. Since then i have decided to publish them all over for those who need a loan. I have been scammed of $5,450 till i met this company that is also located in USA who saved me out of debt and my story has changed today. You can contact them via Email: email@example.com and i assure you that you will testify just as i am doing now

Orten is developing it, but who will own it? Will the city still own all or part of it, and be collecting the income it eventually generates? If not, why not? If it's being leased to the developer, it should be a limited number of years before the city controls it again.
Would've been a great place to put the main branch of the library, or expand the museum, or make it part of Laney College, or Oakland sports and rec dept facility or.... But, alas, no money for better uses...
Oh my god, yes, jab Lincoln... I mean he knew he was going to be assassinated and should have made better plans to bring equality to former slaves. Kanye, please.
Such a sad place to arrive at, just selling any soul left to new office uses, so sad to see this just turn into class a drivel.
I can't believe Oakland will loose this wonderful resource. Over the I years I've seen concerts, High School basketball and roller derby games and quarter midge auto races (my oldest sister was queen of the race in 1959). I love many of the change Oakland is currently experiencing. However, we need to preserve our history not throw it away.
"The other two-thirds of new office space built in the converted Kaiser Center auditorium side of the building will be rented at market rates as general commercial office space. Likely tenants include tech companies, attorneys, and similar professional firms."
...as was the plan from the start. When no (local) arts organizations come forward to rent the class A office space, as it was advertised, it will be 100% market rate and another public asset will be privatized. The function, legacy and soul will be lost forever...as was the plan from the start.
View-corridor obsessives like OHA, Naomi and James Vann lobbied against the alternate, convention preservation, new hotel tower option and this is what we're left with.
Is Darwin still gonna beat that "NIMBYs Dont Exist" drum now that even his allies worked so tirelessly to get us here?
@ Leif Bierer: You're *joking*, right?! Transferring--sale, sharing, etc--*any* quantity of weed--even passing a joint--to *anybody*, including those poor "disabled veterans" you're *all* about, is presently a *felony* outside of a medical collective/cooperative; after 64, sharing up to an ounce between any other adult is completely legal, and over an ounce is only a misdemeanor!
Seriously, you tools really ought to look this stuff up *before* you post it ... !

Public land for private good.
As someone who's life has been so impacted positively by CBD Oil with a skosh of THC, I'm encouraged that these issues are being addressed.
Prop 64 improves things exponentially for everyone, including patients. - Most people exaggerate the small protection given by Prop 215. It does not make marijuana possession legal, and does not prevent ticketing arrest and jail. - It is ONLY an affirmative defense that can be used in court after you are arrested and it may or may not work.
Prop 64 ends all illegality of one ounce of marijuana and six plants growing in the home. That changes everything. It will cause the police not to care or be interested in anyone's marijuana.
As for disabled, needy veterans, under Prop 64, you can give any adult over 21 up to an ounce also. I'm sure there are plenty of people - in the industry and out - who would happily fill that need.
@miles Monroe I'll name one, how about donating cannabis to a disabled veteran that can't grow his own medicine?
The "scandal" consists of the actions of perhaps five OPD police, tried in the media, on a force of 700-some officers. Activists who hate OPD so much that they do not care about the public safety of 400,000 city residents are the core supporters of measure LL. They want City positions, on a new political platform, with staff paid at our expense. No on LL.
@DankDave the Deceiver
lol - It's so easy to debunk your lies. - You should take your own advice. From BallotPedia:
>>>"Revenue from the two taxes would be deposited in a new California Marijuana Tax Fund. First, the revenue would be used to cover costs of administrating and enforcing the measure. Next, it would be distributed to drug research, treatment, and enforcement, including:
$2 million per year to the UC San Diego Center for Medical Cannabis Research to study medical marijuana.
$10 million per year for 11 years for public California universities to research and evaluate the implementation and impact of Proposition 64. Researchers would make policy-change recommendations to the California Legislature and California Governor.
$3 million annually for five years to the Department of the California Highway Patrol for developing protocols to determine whether a vehicle driver is impaired due to marijuana consumption.
$10 million, increasing each year by $10 million until settling at $50 million in 2022, for grants to local health departments and community-based nonprofits supporting "job placement, mental health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, system navigation services, legal services to address barriers to reentry, and linkages to medical care for communities disproportionately affected by past federal and state drug policies."
The remaining revenue would be distributed as follows:
60 percent to youth programs, including drug education, prevention, and treatment.
20 percent to prevent and alleviate environmental damage from illegal marijuana producers.
20 percent to programs designed to reduce driving under the influence of marijuana and a grant program designed to reduce negative impacts on health or safety resulting from the proposition.
@Deborah Tharp: Name one offense--just *one*--that's a felony or misdemeanor under Prop 64 that isn't already now, because we can name *several* offenses that are felonies or misdemeanors now that are completely legal under 64!
@Dave Armstrong: Your "most federally conforming law in the nation" didn't prevent over 15,000 people, disproportionally black and brown--which you're *not*, right Dave?--from being arrested for weed related felonies and misdemeanors in California last year; Prop 64 will cut that number in *at least* half, based on the experience of the other legal states and DC, not to mention that the mere *claim* "I smell marijuana" by a cop will no longer give him carte blanche to detain, search, seize suspected drug money, etc, etc.
Its where the people go--not to jail anymore--that matters; where the money goes--not *your* pockets anymore, right Dave?--is a distant second, at best.
Stop calling prop 64 legalization. It's criminalization, fees and fines
