Alameda Point Info

We are an informal group of Alameda friends and neighbors who began sharing emails and links about the former Naval Air Station, the SunCal Corporation and its ballot initiative to redevelop Alameda Point. We were soon buried in information about it all. After putting in a lot of time and effort in finding answers to our questions, we decided to build a website and make it available to everyone in the community. We hope that you find it useful!

Around Dublin

As proud new home owners who are excited about Dublin’s impressive achievements and vast potential, we started to read the Staff Reports, follow City Council meetings, and consult Dublin’s City Staff to learn more about the many exciting developments throughout this beautiful emerald city of Northern California. Once we realized that other residents would be interested in the information we have collected and digested, we started this website to share what we know, evaluate each project on its own and in the greater context of the city, and provide a forum for interested residents to contribute their perspectives.

All About George

I work at Bay Area News Group-East Bay’s Contra Costa Times, a 160,000-circulation newspaper that covers much of San Francisco’s East Bay. As the Times’ online coordinator, I offer best-practices advice on blogging and social media, moderate site forums, polls and reader-generated content; and create a daily “link and load” list of daily-buzz stories for budgeting awareness. I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor’s in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University. My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University’s Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers’ universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at thestandard.com and salon.com. I joined the Times in 2001 as a copy editor and paginator and then as the paper’s first morning online reporter.
