Re: “Plan to Ship Coal Through Oakland Was Years in the Making

Thank you for this article. This record appears to confirm a longtime plot to stick us with coal dust. Hard to understand, since Mr. Tagami's children live here too, albeit higher up the hill than do those most seriously affected.

Re: “Pending Eviction of Former Black Panther Aunti Frances Highlights Just-Cause 'Loophole'

Elizabeth, you may want to actually read and comprehend the article before trying to form a mob to harass a business where Morphy doesn't work anymore.

"As it turned out, that Tuesday was Natalia Morphys last day at Sweet Adeline."

EBX, really? Why is that kind of comment allowed?

There doesn't seem to be an easy solution to gentrification. Both tenants and landlords are between a rock and a hard place. The fast-paced rising cost of living in the Bay Area has left working class citizens unable to keep up. At the same time it's unfair to demand that a mom-and-pop landlord subsidize the cost of living for a tenant for the rest of their life. The only solution to this problem is to build high rises in places with high demand. The Bay Area needs to move away from single family homes and three story buildings just like New York. However, some NIMBY folk oppose this type of development.

Re: “Pending Eviction of Former Black Panther Aunti Frances Highlights Just-Cause 'Loophole'

Wouldn't it be interesting if my neighbors and I made a big stink of this in front of Sweet Adeline's every single day until/unless Morphy were convinced to do the right & moral & human thing?

Re: “Pending Eviction of Former Black Panther Aunti Frances Highlights Just-Cause 'Loophole'

Measure JJ didn't go far enough to amend Just Cause in 2016. Hopefully we can get a ballot measure together in 2018 to Close the Loopholes, most notably this one.

Morphy and her family are assailants in the current class war raging in our neighborhoods, primarily against low-income black and brown folks. While this case is high-profile, hundreds of others have been perpetrated silently in North Oakland. With the current tenants' rights framework, tenants are at an extreme disadvantage against landlords.

The heart of the matter is deeper than gentrification; one must look at the not-so-subtle racism in Oakland's ordinances, and the structures that allow for ongoing oppression and removal of poor folks from their homes and the communities that support them.

By utilizing the racist and classist tools available to them, Morphy and family become, in practice, racist and classist. Regardless of whether they succeed in these two unethical evictions, that should be their cross to bear in Oakland moving forward.

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

This is an outrage. It deters people from getting help. Yes, there is crime in Oakland. So let them die?? We need to encourage people to seek help, not threaten them. Some cities have made polices that people reporting drug overdoses will not be questioned due to the fact that people were letting their friends die out of fear of obtaining medical help.
And by the way, the Bay Area is high crime.Highland is Oakland's general hospital. Yes black people live here. That does not make patients more dangerous or less worthy.

Re: “Oakland Has Yet to Spend Soda Tax Funds

Some of my low information customers blamed this tax on Trump instead of blaming their fellow citizens for voting it in.
As for Oakland screwing up its implementation, who is surprised by that?

Re: “Oakland Has Yet to Spend Soda Tax Funds

Read the study. It included a telephone survey that asked people about their beverage habits. The result was, "Changes in self-reported sugar-sweetened beverage intake were not statistically significant." That is, no change in behavior could be detected.
How does the survey of users square with the reported decline in store sales of taxed beverages? The decline was in Berkeley, but sales rose in stores just outside Berkeley.
Also, the survey found that corner grocery stores did not raise prices on SSBs, but there was too little data to say whether their sales went up or down or stayed the same. All the study really found was that the large chain markets in Berkeley passed on the tax and lost sales.
Some of the authors of the study campaigned for sugar taxes and donated to the campaign. It is no surprise that they do their best to spin their own results.

Re: “Oakland Schools Grapple with Another Financial Crisis

Thanks to EB Express for their in depth coverage.

Here's a link to the No Cuts to Schools petition that is helping turn the tide against cutting funds to our schools & students, helping to create awareness & helping School Board members know the level of of opposition to these proposed school cuts:

https://campaigns.organizefor.org/petition…

Please get the word out by email & social media to your friends, neighbors & family.

Re: “Oakland Schools Grapple with Another Financial Crisis

I think every Oakland citizen should refuse to pay city taxes until our schools and police force are properly, fully and responsibly funded and managed.

Re: “Oakland Schools Grapple with Another Financial Crisis

Yet another f*ck- up brought to you by the City of Oakland. Self-serving, corrupt, and myopic. No wonder Betsy Devos is licking her chops.

Who reviews all these outside contracts and approves them for payment, surely there is a name on the contract and that name bears responsibility.

Re: “Oakland Schools Grapple with Another Financial Crisis

Vernon Hal the Chief Business Officer's job description makes him responsible for keeping the District fiscally solvent. He didn't. So why is his job as the Chief Financial Officer not vacant?

There is a consultant filling in for the Interim Chief Financial Officer that just left.

And, the District webpage lists Office of Accountability Officer as vacant.

Not a pretty picture.

Got news for ya Tracy Rosenberg, Alta bates and Kaiser have 'em too... And a security officer too.

As I pointed out, these TEND to be standard "features" this type of facilities... But most especially in places owned/operated by bookies... Oops, "insurance companies".

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

Oakland has a crime epidemic. A LPR at a hospital is great, now let's put them on the getaway routes around town and put a dent in crime in Oakland.

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

Checking ID is one thing; making license plate data available to any registered govt agency, including ones that police us against our will, is another. We are a nation founded on securing citizens against unwarranted police and govt actions.
