If one mayor represented all of Alameda and Contra Costa counties, that person's 2.5 million constituents would live in the country's fourth-largest city. And just as these East Bay counties are very different from the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Express is a very different paper. From the international populations that make Oakland and Richmond so dynamic, to the ideological diversity that separates Berkeley from Walnut Creek, our readers are united by their love of a region that is second to nowhere in beauty, livability, intellectual firepower, and cosmopolitan charm.
Every week, the Express provides these well-educated world travelers the only medium dedicated exclusively to them. From our authoritative cover stories; to our in-depth local reporting, arts and dining coverage; to the area's most comprehensive weekly calendar; the East Bay Express has been this vibrant region's leading voice since 1978.
Welcome to the Alameda Point Environmental Report covering environmental cleanup, parks, and open space issues at the former Naval Air Station – Alameda, in Alameda, California. The goal of this blog is to inform about environmental cleanup issues that are often weighed down by a mountain of technical data, and to bring more public awareness, and thus action, about the great potential for creating a legacy of public open space.
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.
Walking can be a form of transportation, a means of meditation or exercise, or a great way to explore a community. Writer/photographer Keith Skinner offers intimate glimpses of Berkeley life, in word and image, as well as reflections on the joys and challenges of a modern urban walker.
Based in Berkeley, California, I am a nonprofit development consultant and writer. I work with nonprofits and higher education institutions and consult and write on the topics of philanthropy, fundraising, education, environmental sustainability, nonprofit journalism and social justice. In this blog I highlight ideas, news and resources to spark creative thinking, action and progress for social and environmental causes.
East Bay Conservative takes a look at events in Oakland and the surrounding areas from a non-Leftist viewpoint. This does not necessarily mean we’re actually conservatives, as traditionally defined across the US. We’re not evangelical Christians, we’re pro-choice, and we’re not particularly fond of guns. That being said, we stand opposed the throngs of people in the Bay Area who can properly be called Leftists — those who believe things such as:
* There is no reasonable maximum tax rate. The more you tax people, the better.
* Government services generally, or always, work better than those provided by private industry.
* Organic food is meaningfully better for people and/or the environment than regular food.
* Schools should receive as much money as possible, and no one should ever ask what they use it for.
* The homeless should never be regulated or constrained in any way.

This is not a typical "mommy blog" in that it's NOT "the story of a SAHM struggling with the ups and downs of motherhood" or "and baby makes crafty coupon mom of eight" or any of that noise. No problem with those blogs, but I'd say the market's pretty much saturated when it comes to that type of blog, wouldn't you? Tri-Valley Mom posts events, activities, deals, discounts, and anything else of interest to families in the East Bay's Tri-Valley. If you have anything at all to share with local parents, please post to this blog.
