In Alameda: Friendly on the wallet, friendly on the planet

The weekly column I write for the Alameda Journal is up online. This one is about the growing understanding of the importance of making environmentally-sustainable choices and, too, the rising cost of basic goods and services. It cost me over $75 dollars to fill up my gas tank last week!

Paying the price to have good schools in Alameda

Today’s print column, “Paying the price to have good schools,” is up online. If you’ve somehow missed that today is election day, and Measure H, the parcel tax to support our town’s schools in on the ballot, go read it now. You can find all Alameda Journal articles online here.

Alameda life: what’s cooking?

This week’s print column, “What’s cooking in the hot weather?” is up online. I wrote it on that hot-hot-hot day—last Wednesday. Perhaps it will take you back? You can also find all the Alameda Journal stories from the print edition of the paper here.

Man caves?! In Alameda?

I want to thank you all for your feedback and reflections on this week’s column—it seems that many of you, as do I, enjoy saying the phrase ‘man cave.’ And maybe even giggling about it. For those of you who missed it in print, the column is here.
