Re: “Best Use of a Fireplace

lol Very original way to make pizza dude! Definitely very creative to start cooking up your meal with a good ol 'fireplace oven'. I think it would look great as a corner fireplace like this:

Re: “Best Service at a Restaurant

I am glad I came across this article. For me, when it comes to restaurants, I think the service is more important than the food. If a server does an excellent job, has a good sense of humor, connects with me, etc. I am likely to come back even if the food is only mediocre. The next time I am in Oakland, I will definitely have to give this place a try.

Re: “Smartest Environmentalist

CBE is always fighting the good fight without the Free Press and environmental activists we wouldn't have any air at all.

Re: “Best Good-Government Politician

Thanks so very much for the honor. I'm thrilled that the Public Ethics Charter reform measure is on the ballot.
Our redistricting commission measure is also important, and Councilmember Schaaf deserves a big share of the credit for that one.

Re: “Best Singaporean restaurant

I wish that I knew of this Singapore restaurant when I lived in the Bay Area. I would have loved to visit it.

Re: “Readers Say the Darndest Things: Arts and Culture

Thanks so much for sharing such a great list of things to do in the area. I have been looking to get out more and socialize. I wonder if any of these activities costs anything?

Re: “Best Politician Against All Odds

In response to Ms Koortz’s response to my earlier comments:

**According to City resources, there were in the neighborhood of 2,000 businesses that left Richmond since the Mayor became Mayor. These same sources tell us that in the neighborhood of a thousand businesses started in Richmond but these had significantly fewer employees.

**Empty promises? How were they empty? Weren’t there signed contracts that would have guaranteed that 40% of the 6800 permanent jobs would go to Richmond residents--even the ones who couldn’t speak English or prove their legal right to work in the US? You may believe that a casino was the wrong choice for the development of Point Molate but this was the direction Upstream was given by the City Council when they were awarded the Exclusive Right to Negotiate for the development of Point Molate. And the Council didn’t seem to have a problem accepting the tens of millions of dollars from Upstream while Upstream worked on the details. [Of course, now the City is fighting an $800 million lawsuit because of their failure to bargain on good faith.]

**Although she never took money from the card clubs, she also did nothing to stop them from campaigning--and spending gazillions of dollars--on her behalf.

**This article is about no one but Gayle Mclaughlin so comparing her to anyone else is not really relevant, is it?

**I know something about worker owned businesses since I’ve owned my own business since 1976.

**Please don’t suppose to suggest who and what I support. You’ve never made any effort to get to know me or to discuss who or what I support. Speaking from ignorance is never a good idea. If you think you’ve ever heard me speak in favor of Chevron--the company--then you weren’t listening. I speak on issues and I cite facts and, instead of speaking from ignorance, I speak from decades of experience in that business.

**Granted, I only came to Richmond in 1954 so I can’t speak about it before then but I can remember a GREAT many years where Richmond was a better place. Why is it that the FBI had us as the #11 and then the #9 most violent cities in the US (we dropped off their top 25 about 7 months ago) but we’re still ranked the #1 in car thefts in the country? Why is our official unemployment rate nearing 20%? [The unofficial rate--because people have been unemployed so long they’re no longer counted--is closer to 30%.] Why are there so many home foreclosures in Richmond? Why are we so ethnically separated? Why do our city streets resemble something out of rural Afghanistan? This is not the Richmond I grew up in so why suggest that it’s never been better?

**And having worked with so many business leaders who have taken their businesses elsewhere, few of them cite their proximity to Chevron as the reason but they do speak frequently about the anti-business attitude coming from many vocal neighborhoods and from City Hall (at the direction of the Council).

**Having been a leader in so many different fields I have experience in knowing how to lead diverse groups of people so at the very least we’re able to conduct the affairs before us. I’ve yet to see that leadership in our current Mayor. What I see is someone who doesn’t know how to lead--only to command. It’s not the same.
