Re: “Banking on Coal in Oakland

And, coal burning in Asia comes back to us in the form of air pollution, further contaminating air quality here.

Re: “An Environmental Setback at Brooklyn Basin

Just to be clear: the potential marshy area in question is not "debilitated buildings and old docks" but the coastal edge where the channel connects Lake Merritt to the Estuary. It is currently a dirt bank, desperately in need of vegetation, trash cleanup, and natural filtration. No structures stand on this stretch of the water's edge, and none are planned by the developers, as it will adjoin an open space area.

Re: “From Siegel to Parker

I have never seen much evidence that crime has anything to do with who is mayor. I realize this goes against the desire of people for mayor-power, but if you look at the stats, there's more relationship with national trends than with who is mayor, for the last several decades. Mayors always take credit when it goes down and try to avoid blame when it goes up, but probably not due to their efforts, either way.

Re: “Uptown Oakland Named One Of The Best Neighborhoods in America

Organizations such as Oakland Heritage Alliance worked for years and years to ensure the preservation of the Fox Oakland, the Floral Depot (now Flora restaurant) and Sweet's Ballroom. OHA printed a run of "save the Floral Depot" postcards around 1982. Art Deco Society of California helped too.

Re: “Port Postpones A’s Ballpark Plan In Order to Examine Proposal for Shipping Coal Through Jack London Square

PLEASE NO COAL through Oakland! It pollutes our city twice: once coming through on the train, and again when it comes back to us from Asia as air pollution. We should join our neighbors to the north and say NO COAL shipping in our cities.
