Re: “With Dirt World, Richmond Gets a BMX Bike Park

So proud of you guys sister. You really need to know the impact this is will have on the kids in your community. The big picture is getting our kids off the street and ll giving them a safe place to enjoy and come together as a community. You guys did the unimaginable to me. I used to think you guys were all talk when you would bring up building a bike park
But I give it to you, you proved me wrong. And I'm super proud of you. I know a few resources that mr. Want to donate for the cause I'll get in touch, make a few calls and get back to you love you

Re: “With Dirt World, Richmond Gets a BMX Bike Park

What a positive addition to the community ... and all because two residents decided it could be done! Fabulous work

Re: “Bridge Storage and ArtSpace Reopens

I think his intentions are good however every single one of the original artists was kicked out of their space here after the Ghost Ship fire thereby giving them the opportunity to build new improved "shared" spaces where they could charge more rent. A lot of "burned bridges" here.

Re: “A T-Shirt Rises Out of East Oakland

It's amazing that the bay area artists are doing their own thing and finding success. There has been such a great history of art especially in the hispanic community around east bay. I've heard there are a lot of companies local to the area like https://scalablepress.com that help artists find mediums to get themselves out there.

Re: “New Style Motherlode Enters a New Era

I have followed Corey from the Rockridge Studio to Broadway and he has been amazing for my boys. They discovered their artistry at New Style and are still with him to this day. New Style Motherload for life is what his former and present students say from Janet Jackson back up dancers to his dance family in Germany and all in between we love you Corey!

Re: “New Style Motherlode Enters a New Era

Hi Corey!
I love you. I danced in your hip hop class at the YMCA and took a few classes at Alice Art Center. I'm proud of you. You inspire me and built confidence in me as far as dancing. People used to laugh at me. But through your teaching I not only learned what you taught but how to create my own dance moves. I can't thank you enough.

Thank you so much for sharing the story on this living legend! Corey is a lighthouse of life giving energy and continues to give so much to our community, our kids, he saved my inner dancer from dying. He deserves the abundance of love, health and wealth he is creating for himself, New Style Motherlode, and the dancers of the bay area.

Re: “Oscar Cisneros Showcases the Richness of Mexican Folk Art

I love your work, and support your beliefs and efforts, but, having spent many years as an adult ESL instructor I can tell you feminism, in terms of breaking out of a machismo bias, is something that many, many countries will have to find strong female leaders brave enough to take on the male dominant business and political leadership roles. Until that happens, too many well-educated womenn will have to fawn and preen for their Male bosses, or risk losing their jobs if they don't. It's sad.

Re: “Mapping History with Long Lost Oakland

The name Key System should be capitalized, since it was the colloquial name by which the company was known. Its trains did not cover the entire East Bay, as claimed. They served Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, and Piedmont (and the northernmost blocks of Dutton Avenue in San Leandro from 1941-1958).

One streetcar line operated by East Bay Street Railways ran out East 14th to Hayward and San Lorenzo. The area between Hayward and San Jose had no such rail transit service. The East Shore & Suburban Railway operated streetcar lines in Richmond. But these were local lines which did not offer transbay train service.
