LOL where are you people getting your facts? Catching and killing feral cats is animal control’s traditional approach for feral cats. Catch and kill attempts may temporarily reduce the number of feral cats in a given area, but two things happen: intact survivors continue to breed, and other cats move in to the now-available territory. This is a phenomenon known as the vacuum effect, and it is documented worldwide.
Trap and release is humane to wildlife and to the feral cats. Most importantly it keeps Oakland from having to kill feral cats and stabilizes the cat population in our communities. Thank you Sarah, and your volunteers for showing everyone the humane way to manage our feral cat issues. There are dozens of volunteers, vets, foster homes, and Oakland merchants behind these efforts. We should be proud that Oakland is leading the way in demonstrating that feral cats have been part of healthy human communities since the time of the Pharoahs. Let's hope other cities and communities adopt similar organizations and methods. And yes, I have a formerly feral cat that was TNR'd and socialized by Sarah and the great folks at Feral Change.
We at CANNABIS QUAKE take our hats off too all the staff member's at Harborside Health Center, for every minute spent with clients for the purpose of healing and staying healthy,
Thank You Andrew and Steve for the birth and continued awareness of organizations across the nation.

So happy to see, E.M. Wolfman's is a fun, great place to visit!!
The BEST yarn shop in THE WORLD. Hands down. . .
I have been more impressed with this local campaign than anything that has happened in years in Oakland. Shutting down the City Council meeting seems to have been an effective strategy in gaining time and media attention. It's hard to come from behind and organize neighbors effectively. A million thanks to the City staffer (?) who leaked the memo from City Attorney Barbara Parker that might have killed the sweetheart deal with UrbanCore. So many of the most important City decisions happen in "closed session" and that's a shame for those of us community activists who should at least have a chance to weigh in. Same thing happened with the 5 new Bay Bridge billboards (although we at Scenic East Bay were able to help pull the plug on 2 of them.) Kudos EUJ!
I agree with this perspective. Mr. Finnell has brought professionalism, experience and commitment to police accountability in Oakland. We expect that he will continue to strive to strengthen police oversight and confront the racial disparities that continue to exist in police encounters.
How wonderful to discover this delightful article in today's "Best of the East Bay" section! A small correction: Disclosure will run August 12-29 at PianoFight (not August 12-20). Tickets are available from EventBrite: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/disclosure-tickets-17559102749?aff=eac2

Just Deserts was great--it's amazing how looking at these old stories through new eyes has helped me understand how women fit in the world and in our culture. Explains a lot of weird and real-world experience. Those Women just started a fundraising campaign, I gave them some $ and hope others do too. http://igg.me/at/twp2015/x/11544782
And speaking of disclosure (the great play coming up), I have followed Carol Lashof's work for years--ever since I married into the family.

...isn't it: "Best Oakland-Branded Beer Whose Offices Are in Walnut Creek and Then Brewed in San Jose"? Seems like a pretty slim candidate pool for a very specific award.
Thank you! But it's not just me: Paul Rosenbloom, Chris Kidd, Dan Schulman, Neal Parish and others are part of Oakland Urban Paths, too (Paul and Dan founded OUP)
Do NOT feed ownerless cats. It just attracts more cats, raccoons, skunks etc. The fastest way to reduce feral cat numbers is trap and REMOVE them. If they are not suitable for re-homing, euthanise, and then go trap some more cats again before the next breeding cycle. Neutering and feeding cats does NOT reduce the feral cat population overall as the necessary neutering rates are never actually reached (95%) while intact cats immigrate to the food source, perpetuating the breeding problems.
Actually I have the honor of tweeting #oakmtg first, in July 2009, when I entered it into a hashtag dictionary. It was Echa Schneider's idea and she ran the blog http://abetteroakland.com which was a forum for civic discussion before Twitter came along. A few days later the two of us and Sean livetweeted the Council meeting of July 28, 2009.

Maybe the top-two primary won't exist in 2016. The lawsuit against it filed by the Green, Peace & Freedom, and Libertarian Parties is still not over.
Not effective. Not humane. Terrible for wildlife. Increases risks to public health. Infringes on landowner rights. Trap and remove.
This mural was painted over by the Jack London Improvement District, an association of JLS property owners. Express - can you get to the bottom of this? why would such a great mural - a source of tremendous civic pride - be painted over?
Nice post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I’m inspired! Very useful info specifically the remaining section. I maintain such information a lot. I used to be seeking this certain information for a very long time. Thanks and good luck. Find Outdoor Games information. http://outdoorsactivities.com/best-swimming-goggles-review-2015/
