Re: “The Beat Won’t Go On: Chicago Landlord Evicts Coffee With A Beat, Longtime Adams Point Shops

Coffee With A Beat has touched many hearts. Young and old, black, asian, white all came together to discuss interests of the day. I loved it because I probably never would have had the good fortune to have met any of the patrons stopping by if it were not for Nate's unique gathering place. My life has been enriched by knowing the kindness of Nate, Joyce and their family. Times have changed. As someone said "It was such a gathering space and costs will prohibit another one like it." I am very grateful for Brian Krans to write this article and get it out so quickly. Stopping by Friday, today, I heard a few people commented on your article and because of it, they made a point to stop by to say how grateful they were to Nate Smith for the memories.

This place was a neighborhood institution. Nate is a great guy, a community resource, and an excellent coach at Tech inspiring a lot of young men including my son. There was many a fine rap session with hipsters who made Coffee with a Beat the place to go.

Re: “State Sen. Nancy Skinner: Latest Fatal Oakland Fire Was 'Preventable'

@Vincent, Oakland's rent control specifies you can only raise the rent once per year per the CPI. For any additional rent increases, as of Feb 2017, you are required to petition the rental board for add' increases, with a max of 30% rent increase (this is also based on the cost of the improvement amortized over its useful life).

Tenants have the option not to relocate or decline a landlords request to improve a unit. Tenants cannot not allow a landlord into the unit to perform necessary repairs. But if a tenant obtains a restraining order against the landlord then the landlord's hands are tied.

So if a tenant is in a 1 bedroom Lake Merritt apartment for $625/month and you'd like to replace the windows of the unit, how long will it take to pay off windows which may cost $9,000 for that unit? Don't forget the windows will need to amoritized over a period of possibly 20 years.

Truly a sad day in Oakland. A Chicago outfit, ugh. People coming from everywhere with no love for Oakland just using Oakland like a prostitute.

Re: “The Beat Won’t Go On: Chicago Landlord Evicts Coffee With A Beat, Longtime Adams Point Shops

What is happening to small businesses all over the Bay Area is truly deplorable, immoral, unconscionable, and harmful to the quality of life of the neighborhoods these essential businesses serve. It is most regrettable that businesses have no rights in California beyond their initial lease. In the 60's, the City of Berkeley, in an heroic attempt, enacted commercial rent control to "save" a popular College Ave pharmacy/coffeeshop. The state stepped in and voided Berkeley's action proclaiming that commercial rent control is "preempted" by State law. This horrible situation will not change until small commercial owners come together, organize, and bring mass pressure on the legislature to change the existing law.

Re: “Day After Deadly West Oakland Apartment Fire, City Modified Real Estate Deal to Financially Benefit Negligent Landlord

Over and over again, it is the same old story. The City of Oakland illustrates it's incompetence and a determination to go to great lengths to deal with shady characters. Jabari Herbert is a decent guy, but has been around about 20 years, always promising development deals with the City of Oakland, but never putting anything in the ground. His only role appears to be as a middle man using his relationships and the process to maintain a permanent income source. Again, Council member McElheney appears to have no ethical boundaries. Her apparent relationship with Kim, a man previously convicted of insider trading and other questionable financial deals is shameful. This time folks, while she focused on interceding in a questionable real estate deal with Kim and her friends, people who lived in his substandard and knowingly dangerous property died. When will this madness stop?

Re: “City of Richmond Approves Huge Expansion to Medical Cannabis Industry

This is the right step. It's the high time the authorities changed the laws relating to cannabis to reflect the wishes of many well-informed citizens.
Many people are already using cannabis to ease a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.

Good going, Luke! It's also worth pointing out that there's good food in Chinatown after midnight -- especially at New Gold Medal and Shooting Star.

And has anyone else noticed (once beyond the stink) how similar durian tastes to marzipan??? Talk about East/West fusion!

Re: “Day After Deadly West Oakland Apartment Fire, City Modified Real Estate Deal to Financially Benefit Negligent Landlord

Corrupt financial dealings are bad enough.

A government which fails to provide for the public safety because it is too busy doing fishy deals really needs to be taken down.

Didn't we create and fund a Public Ethics Commission a couple of years ago? What is that august body up to?

Re: “Day After Deadly West Oakland Apartment Fire, City Modified Real Estate Deal to Financially Benefit Negligent Landlord

Yes, thank you, Darwin. Once again, documents reveal totally corrupt City of Oakland officials 1) enriching private citizens at public expense, and 2) aiding and abetting the operation of a large apartment building without legally required fire safety equipment, leading to 4 deaths.
