Alameda: Neptune Beach event celebrates fun, Island history
The Neptune Beach Community Celebration was held this past weekend on Webster Street, featuring a new pet costume contest, vintage car show, two stages with live music and special activities for children.
The event gets underway at 6 p.m. in K Gallery at Rhythmix with the opening of the Power Box Art Show featuring artwork by the same artists who are wrapping their work around Alameda's utility transformers.
The task force, which is on Tuesday's Alameda City Council agenda, would include realtors and affordable housing advocates and would gather data on vacancies, rates and the overall state of the market, as well as background on the effectiveness of rent control.
The Alameda police managed the shelter on Fortmann Way until the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter took over in January 2012, a move that followed city officials threatening to close the facility because of budget woes.
Five new members are joining the Alameda Health System board that oversees the county's public hospital consortium.
Jason Yoon chose the name BB Bowl as an abbreviation for bi bim bap, a traditional Korean dish of rice topped with vegetables, sliced meat or tofu, flavorful sauces and other ingredients.
When I came to Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) in January 2012, we had just taken over operations of the shelter that had previously been run by the Alameda Police Department.
