Re: “Are the Golden State Warriors a Dynasty? Obviously.

. So, perhaps the more pressing dilemma is whether the teams Big Four will make the sacrifices to stick together in the coming years, as Oakland passes its legacy team off to that city on the other side of the bay.

Yes they will.

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

I would have to say that if the City Council is serious about localizing Trump policy issues is to declare their disgust in currying favor to the NRA by his current stance of loosening rules on gun control that contribute to the senseless violence in our streets!

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

My symbolic gesture towards CMs Kalb, Guillen and the rest: find out what is going on in Oakland's meanest streets. Think about it. Do something new to try to protect the most vulnerable among us, our children.

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

Well, glad to see. the Oakland City Council spending time on important things, lol.

They thrive on meaningless drivel that nobody cares about.

Re: “Alameda Renter Advocates Say Landlords Engaging in ‘Disinformation Campaign’ to Repeal Just-Cause Protections

This article fails to mention that under the JCE section a tenant can sublet to anyone without owner approval and even credit checks. He can even arbitrage the rent for a profit. Also the way the language is written it is a costly endeavor for eviction by the owner that skews all the rights to the tenant. Trying to get someone out under the provisions listed means that another tenant would have to testify. Most tenants won't do that as fearing retribution. The facts about all that JCE entails is sorely lacking in the dialogue. Be fair EBE and show the full picture of what JCE really means and don't just cherry pick a word or phrase.

Re: “An Ideal Lunch Break at Emeryville's Paradita

Sorry, but are you certain Paradita offers beef heart anticuchos? We were there 6/16 and the ONLY anticuchos offered on the menu signboard were chicken, shrimp, and pork belly. We were very disappointed!

Re: “Crucial Legislation for New Oakland Police Commission Stalls in Committee as Activists and Councilmembers Fight Over Rules

If Council members believe that background checks are important, they should require checks of all candidates for elected office in Oakland.

The way it is now, the only "check" is the City Clerk checking that a candidate is registered to vote at their stated address. Candidates for City Attorney and Auditor must provide proof of current state license.

No official verification of resumes or candidate's statements.

Fighting an illegal Alameda eviction now, from Jan, by Mary Ann McMillan, from 1606 Morton St, Apt D, Alameda CA 94501. She was aided unlawfully by Paul Rolleri, Chief of the Alameda Police Dept., and I am fighting them with the help of State Attorney General Xavier Becerra now, closing in on JUSTICE!

Re: “Best Of The East Bay Finalists Are Here! Find Out Who Got Nominated!

I am so disappointed that you didn't think that there was value in a category for Best Fabric Store. The Fabric Stores in this area (the ones who are left) work very hard to provide the best fabric, notions, patterns and creative value for the entire Bay Area and beyond. They deserve the chance to be Best of the East Bay 2017 as much as any you have listed.

Re: “Alameda Renter Advocates Say Landlords Engaging in ‘Disinformation Campaign’ to Repeal Just-Cause Protections

Just to be fair, this was the first lie:

Eric Strimling
June 9 at 5:37pm Alameda
Today 3 paid signature gatherers illegally gathered signatures to overturn all rent regulations in Alameda. All eviction controls, all relocation fees, even the 5% trigger. They were yelling "Help landlords evict drug dealers!" while wandering in the parking lot blocking traffic. Finally, APD was called and they had to go.

Re: “Oakland A's Minority Owners Purchase Downtown SRO After Previous Landlord Evicted Low-Income Tenants

The war over Oakland is just an incredible reality-television show to watch. Move out the old (low-income folks) and usher in the new (moneyed folks.) Popcorn and water on hand, watching the show.

Re: “Restaurant Shuffle on Broadway in Oakland

Is Hayward becoming the new Oakland? Not sure of a rent comparison, but there are certainly empty storefronts on the main drag there which could be occupied by restaurants feeling a squeeze from the high rents of downtown and uptown Oakland. We recently had a fun meal with friends at Buffalo Bills Brewery in downtown Hayward (1082 B Street), not to mention enjoyed their brews and took home a six pack of high octane IPA.
