Re: “The Back Room

What a fantastic space! A cool club with comfy couches, excellent sound and great music. AND you can BYOB for no charge (they don't sell alcohol here).

Berkeley has been missing a smaller, more intimate place for acoustic music since the Freight grew up and became huge, and The Back Room fills this gap with style! I love the variety of music - folk, blues, soul, pop, world, bluegrass, Cajun, etc. - and it has a very chill, friendly vibe.

Re: “Altered State: Marijuana in California

I believe that it should be a requirement that all city officials and police chiefs throughout California should see this display so that they can have the unbiased truth about this plant and how politics have steered public opinion on this issue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Re: “Starry Plough

Bad service, bad attitude, liars and thieves! Stay away from this place, they will rip you off. Took $ from the ATM (which only gives 20's) to pay for my friend to get in, the door person insisted it was a 10 even after I pointed out that I just took the $ from the ATM which only gives 20's and so I spoke with the manger who told me they only check the cameras if I file a police report. After contacting Berkeley PD, called them to try and work it out without wasting public $ and time and the person who answered the phone mocked me and dared me to bring the police . Police report filed, never going back here again, avoid them like the plague!

Of course, the "old Guard" republicans in Michigan, have pulled out all the tricks they could and have silence the voices & will of the citizens in Michigan. The Kingdom has put the kibosh to a rec. marijuana vote. (for now only - it will be back)

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

This is a very timely article due to the fact that Oakland lacks transparency, and has struggled with issues of equity for years. Oakland has paid several high profile lawsuits that span wrongful termination to police corruption. Oakland is lucky to have a City Clerk who can sit between the City Council and the City Administrators without being conflicted or controlled. This helps to eliminate bias and improves public trust. When we start allowing City Officials private spaces to meet without someone to keep a record of the actions, we allow obfuscation of the political process. The public is completely in the dark as to their actions, intent, and policy motivations.

Above I read someone speak on the Clerk having a 10th grade education and found that interesting because it sounds like an attempt to insult Ms. Simmons personally and professionally. Boasting a credential or formal education in an attempt to use it as some type of a trump card is an act of immaturity and likely some form of jealousy. I would respond to that by saying John D. Rockefeller, nor Henry Ford had a high school education and became billionaires and both contributed significantly to the world we live in today. Moreover, Rachel Ray, Dave Thomas, Steve Jobs, Madam CJ Walker, Richard Branson, Michael Dell and several other people worked hard and built legacies. None of these people graduated from high school. While I do not reduce the idea of formal education, because I have plenty (AA -2, BA, BS, MSA, PMP), sitting in a classroom collecting credit hours is not the only way to gain vital experience.

I wanted to add that many of the Ivy league schools offer free online classes now. You do not earn credit hours, but you are able to get a command of the educational materials. Doesn't Ms. Simmons have all of the Clerk designations and certifications, project management education, etc? How can someone stay in a job for more than a decade if they are incapable of doing it? Why did I belabor this point so much? I have a problem with people who think they are better than other because they have a formal education and others may not. It is a divide that has history in my community. Ms. Simmons is from my community and is a beacon of light and hope for others.

In a simple math equation, it takes approximately 120 credit hours for someone to earn an undergraduate degree, and an additional 48 to 60 to earn graduate level credentials. When I looked over Ms. Simmons background it appears she has worked approximately 48,000 hours in administrative positions with significant levels of responsibility managing others, processes, dealing with budgets, organizational restructuring, etc. I couldn't ignore that type of experience unless I was simply immature, foolish or suffering from some form of narcissism, deeply arrogant or just having delusions.

Oakland needs to address the lack of affordable housing and jobs for their citizens, get their police in line, and bring some recreation back for their kids. The last thing we need in the city I love and cherish is for our valuable resources to be squandered harassing the clerk and trying to hide actions from Joe and Josette Public. What I find most astounding about this article is that the City of Oakland wants to control whistleblowers and information that should be public and accessible. Ms. Simmons is the perfect person to be at the table because she has the history of the city, is well versed in the rules and processes and has been a staunch advocate for transparency and public access.

Re: “Best of the East Bay 2016: Shopping & Services Writers' Picks

You have to be a Berkeley resident to use the BPL Tool Library. If you live in Oakland, you can rely on the larger (5000 items) tool lending library at the Temescal Branch!

Re: “Oakland's Culture Clash

Wow. It has gotten bad there. I owed a home in West Oakland from 2005 to 2008. In 2004 the city of Oakland was supposed to help build a People's Co-op Grocery store where the old abandon train station is on Wood St. They didn't do this not because the funds weren't there or that they didn't have a location. The real and honest reason simply is that city officials don't care about the black community. If you live there or move there, help support community gardens, keep calling and writing to the city until they come through with their end of the bargain, and if you can help the schools out by offering to tutor kids that need it for free. It's been over ten years that the city was suppose to build the grocery store. It's time. And if you have a problem with music then don't live there. West Oakland historically was been one of the corner stones for jazz, blues, hip hop, you name it. There are several music studios in West Oakland. That neighborhood has been a black community for many generations and they deserve some respect and some nurturing.

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

Jamala Rahim you really need to stop. Looking at your social media page one would think you are still in high school. Just because you read some books and passed some tests doesn't make you smarter than anyone else. It certainly doesn't make you wiser. LaTonda has way more wisdom, character, excellent work ethic and moral values than you will ever have. That's why she was your manager. Kill the bitterness. Maybe you will move up from being the side chick which you consistently boast about on social media to a main chick.. Then you will have the attention you so desperately seek.

Thank you for including Richmond. I was getting increasingly annoyed in reading your other 2016 winners lists and not seeing the city we live in represented. The East Bay is much more than Oakland and Berkeley!
