Re: “It's Plaid or Nature

I took a walk in the park. However the idea of supporting our local small business and artists is really a good idea. I grew up in a suburb that only had chain stores, we are blessed in Oakland and Berkeley with cool stores locally owned, and even if it costs more it is money well spent me thinks.

Re: “Oakland City Council Tables Controversial Sale of Public Land for Luxury Tower

As I walk around Lake Merritt I think, what a jewel. Why not keep the land as open space parkland for children to play? There is plenty of room for high rise buildings 5 or 6 blocks West in the downtown. Just like we don't need Monsters in the Mission we don't need Largeness at the Lake.

Re: “The Tipping Point

I am still thinking that one of the unintended consequences of this ordinance will be to keep your average chain store or chain restaurant that typically pays minimum wage from setting foot in Oakland. Want to go to a Chick Fillet or Macy's, better head to Walnut Creek. I hope people will support all the cool new Oakland local owned restaurants, bars, stores etc. at the new higher prices. So the staff gets higher wages and we all live happily ever after, but time will tell.

Re: “Walgreens and an East Bay Real Estate Developer Seek Exemption from Oakland’s Living Wage Law

I think that we should give small "mom and pop" business exemptions, not chains. It seems to me we shouldn't be solving societies problems on the backs of small business. On the other hand we don't need chain stores to come into Oakland if they can't pay a decent wage. Since American big business goes to India, China etc. in search of cheap wages I suspect they will avoid Oakland like the plaque from now on in light of this new ordinance. And that's a good thing, lets all go out and buy from our local awesome small business, restaurants and bars that make Oakland unique. This purchase is a good donation to local people earning good wages at local business.

Re: “Shattuck Down Low Owner to Open Old Major’s in Downtown Oakland

A lot of people like to dance in Oakland and Berkeley. I hope he leaves some space for a future dancing area. Besides that it sounds good.
