Here in downtown/northern Hayward, BART to San Francisco is about 35 minutes (with Hayward BARTRead Morestat ion also serving as hub for 15 or so bus lines, plus Trailways/Greyhound ), home/rental prices are good, lots of shops/grocery stores/restaurants of all types, comparatively low crime, BUT.... high schools are not highly rated ( except for a charter in South Hayward, generally a less-desirable area to call home ).

Offers of donations from Berkeley, El Cerrito, Kensington and Albany over the weekend wereRead Moreoverwhelm ing but the kitchen and dining area were mostly done. We got dressers for all rooms and a start on the living room. Still NEED a good QUEEN SIZE BED. Amy from El Cerrito showed us how to apply for donations from CostCo to the Albany Community Foundation for Albany Project Hope. Very Good idea!!! I always ask poeple how they found out about this effort and I cannot remember anyone saying Patch. HuH! Next Door was very effective. Rev. Julie Wakelee from St. Albans Church sent out emails to her list and I got a very good response from them. Peggy, Jim and Erika helped transport four loads in their van, car and truck. I did one in my Mac's truck. There are many ways to help. Melissa is having an incredible response from mothers wanting to pass their outgrown clothes and toys to a new family. Emily dropped off four large new tubes of baby creams and lotions. And some unknown donor left a nice microwave on my porch. Everyone expresses their pleasure in giving and knowing it will be used right away by someone in need. It was a Verrrry Happy Easter

Had a fine time, all the way from top of Solano and got as far down as Masonic. Lots of shops wereRead Moreo pen, and there was music in the street, snacks, wine, and, oh, arts and crafts. I look forward to the next one!

How dare you quote the police statement directly by posting a link to said statement?!Read More</sarcasm& gt; I wonder how the Occupy groups will respond now.

WOW. Thanks, Rochelle. I walked by there that morning and talked to the guys in the waitingRead Moreambula nce, and they couldn't (wouldn't, perhaps, appropriately) tell me much. This reveals that the Bulb is not a haven for the differently-abled but rather the go-to place for meth and other drugs. Thank You Albany Police for investigating this and getting some action. Thank You Rochelle for keeping up on this. Now if the Bulb could be cleared of residents soon, maybe more people than the addicts could get to use it. (Glad I stopped walking out there into the wilds last year.)

Amber, I am trying to keep myself and others informed about this issue, as our formal news coverage Read Moreis so sparse. I want to be accurate. I think you are claiming that the drug that K.C. is accused of dealing is not meth. Correct? If that is so, I would appreciate your saying what drug she is alleged to have dealt, and I will change the headline. This situation makes me very sad and I am not trying to libel K.C. - just to keep the community informed.
