Re: “Say Goodbye to Pacific Coast Brewing, One of Oakland's Oldest Breweries

Too bad, we enjoyed having our annual mixer there and I personally enjoyed going there. Sort of tucked away from the rush of the rest of Oakland. Wish they would just relocate and not close completely.

Re: “Oakland Landlord Beefs with City, Calls for 'No More Homeless Camps,' with Halloween Decorations

You know Gene, if you hate Oakland so much why not sell (at a handsome profit) and move to Danville or Pleasanton where people are more in line with your beliefs and politics? I'm sure you can have Trump parties while your wife blows up her credit cards at Stoneridge Mall.

Re: “Oakland Landlord Beefs with City, Calls for 'No More Homeless Camps,' with Halloween Decorations

I wish the City of Oakland would enforce their ordinances about signs against this jerk. I've reported him multiple times via See, Click, Fix because he's in violation of city codes with his giant lighted signs. I hope the former tenant wins his lawsuit. This jerk doesn't deserve to own property in Oakland, particularly not a diverse, friendly neighborhood like Adams Point.

Re: “While Cases Against Cops Fall Apart, a Civilian Who Allegedly Pimped Celeste Guap Is Ordered to Stand Trial

There's absolute proof police officers pimped Guap, as well as had sex with her when she was a minor, yet once again the police are above the law and none of them have been found to be culpable.
The case hasn't been built up against Mr Knight...so "alleged" is used correctly.

Another unhinged white dude on the wrong side of history and who has very little to no understanding of social problems or how we got to where we are today. Look in the mirror, Gorelick, you're one of the reasons, not the solution. Good luck, dumb*ss

How about a follow-up?

Re: “While Cases Against Cops Fall Apart, a Civilian Who Allegedly Pimped Celeste Guap Is Ordered to Stand Trial

Interesting... When it's a civilian, the word used is "Allegedly"... But in previous articles, referring to OPD, not once.

Wonder what THAT means?

Re: “Tuesday’s Briefing: Rent Control Expansion Proposed for Ballot; Newsom Says State Needs to Build 3.5 Million Homes

Build all the affordable housing that is necessary with appropriate tax funds etc. BUT do not try to take advantage of mom and pop property owners that have enough problems already with managing their properties. Rent Control is income redistribution and is an economic disaster except for a few tenants and it is suspect as to how it really helps things overall.

Re: “Overland Country Bar and World Ground Cafe Shut Their Doors

Overland was great when it first opened. Great food, line dancing, etc. It kept getting worse and worse. By the end, the menu sucked and the place lost its charm. I'd say it was management, not the city. Tho I am sure rent was too damn high like everywhere in the bay.

Re: “Opinion: Why We Plan to Develop on Vacant Land or Non-Residential Sites

I am a neighbor of 1919, and it was never my request or any of my neighbor's request that the project have an increased density. Haber never held a series of community meetings regarding 1919 Market to ask what the community wanted. He is using the Live Work code to circumvent that process and to rob the community of a voice. We the community have spent many hours coming together on our own in opposition of Haber after he started demo on the project and showered our neighborhood with toxic tust. He did the demo without proper permitting.

The community does want to see 1919 Market responsibly renovated, but Haber is obviously not the guy to do it. He is offering 59 parking spaces to 400 new residents in a neighborhood where parking is already tough. He is touting his plan for making affordable housing, but $1,000 - $1,500 for a room in a shared apartment with 2-3 other people is not affordable to many people. He has poisoned the neighborhood, and would have continued to do so if the community had not raised such an outcry. Haber claims that he had multiple meetings with the community, but has explicitly said that he is not interested in meeting with the community as a whole. He is using this Live Work loophole to push forward a project that way exceeds the density of anything in our neighborhood.
