Re: “Why Are So Many Rays Dying In Lake Merritt, And Sharks At The Berkeley Aquatic Park?

Ernest, thank you for your comments on Lake Merritt's improvement, a major civic effort under Measure DD. I think you slightly mistook part of the article. While people concerned about Lake M. may consider better management for the floodgates (operated by Alameda County flood control staff, I believe) the tide tubes are in Berkeley at Aquatic Park.

Re: “Biff’s Coffee Shop In Oakland Was Googie Glory

It seemed possible to plan a taller denser residential building toward Broadway, and to keep a googie icon. The building was pretty cool at one time, particularly loved the big windows and the rounded interior dining room.

Re: “Lake Merritt's Weird, Polluted — And Stinky — Legacy

10th St. bridge is being rebuilt, and the aperture much widened. Now the main barrier is the 7th St. bridge, at the floodgates. County-operated, the idea was to prevent a recurrence of disastrous floods such as 1962--…. I believe the plan is a kayak-able bypass waterway there. The last obstacle is the railroad tracks.

Re: “Oakland Asks Judge to Throw Out Coal Lawsuit

Surely it is time for Phil to move forward and work on his project without wasting time and money on this stupid litigation. It is obvious that coal is on the way out as an energy source. China has realized that particulates in the air are making their cities toxic. Considering that he is a dedicated scuba diver who loves clear waters, Phil is paradoxically unwise on this issue. The almighty dollar is not a good reason to poison us nor our planet.

Re: “If Oakland Cracks Down On Underground Warehouses, It Will Snuff Out The City’s DIY Soul

Posting some days later: seemed like most of the victims had responsible jobs; not one was described as living on ssi. One was a lawyer, another worked at Pandora. Several worked in the music or arts sectors, but did so quite seriously and earned a living. Some of the above comments leapt to conclusions based on no facts or made rash assumptions.
