Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
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.
