Fremont News of the Day and Goodbye

From the cops:

A house on the 38800 block of Bluegill Drive was burglarized. Folks did notice a Budget rental truck in the area. Meanwhile on the 300 block of Fieldstone, burglars failed to seal the deal, and neighbors reported seeing a moving truck near the home.

From me:

This is my last day as the Fremont reporter. I’ve been reassigned to cover Oakland City Hall. Wish me luck. I’ll need it.

There will be a reporter taking my place. I don’t know who it’ll be, and I don’t know if the reporter will take over the blog.

Covering Fremont these past four years has been a treat. There’s a real cooperative spirit here, and a lot of very mature, well-intentioned people. That’s not the case everywhere. No wonder Applebee’s decided to open a second restaurant in town.

Thank you for reading the blog and for commenting. Reporters feed off the passion of the community. Your comments, although often caustic, were a constant reminder of how much you care about the city and how important it was for me to do a good job. Thanks again.

Matt

  1. Should I change the blog to the “Bi-City Beat”?

    I think there’s a lot of anti-Greek sentiment going around these days, and that may be the reason for disinterest in the Di-City Beat.

    I’d like to hear your thoughts. Include Newark? Give permissions to another person? Guest posts?

  2. 156… and you’re convinced that Bacon is the cure. If Vinnie get elected I’ll bet you’ll be able to see purgatory from your front porch.

  3. Box, critical thinking involves reading between the lines. You should attempt it sometime.

    Btw, thanks for reading.

  4. Marty, *thinking* – of ANY type – involves NOT arguing with statements of your own creation.

    Btw, you’re welcome.

  5. My own creation, or my own intuition?

    From this morning’s Chronicle:

    …prosecutors came to believe that Nadia Lockyer, 40, and the man were engaged in a consensual relationship

    Every other event I suggested has been substantiated.

    I’ll remind you Mr Box. There are those who DO things, and those who sit on their porches and complain about how others are doing it.

  6. …and if Bacon does get elected *everyone* in Fremont will be able to see purgatory from their porches. I predict much like the golden goose and cash cow Vinnies trusted advisor choo choo MacDonald will appeal to the giant chip on VBs shoulder and Fremont will ban porches!

  7. Not sure what your problem is, Marty – – –

    *you* said –

    “I admit, some details of the above may be wrong. . .”

    It is indeed, curious, how the mere act of re-posting your very own words has seemingly motivated you to a variety of defensive AND offensive responses.

    Why is that, Marty?

    P.S. – Anu and Bill have won best supporting actor and actress in the Fremont production of “Yes – We Have No Money”.

    P.P.S. – While we follow Anu and Bill on their around the world boondoggle to India and China and city employees re-pave Iron Horse Way, we’d appreciate it if the rest of you people prune your trees and fix your sidewalks.

  8. 166…Hey CalGuy, why would anyone take advise from someone who must have been born on a highway because thats where most accidents happen. Mrs. Bacon would agree!

  9. “…a city council, reluctant to act decisively, has been forced into action….”

    “…Sue Chan is a picture of full retreat ….. and therefore hiding from a decision by recusal. The others have vacillated, resulting in the old standby… let’s study it.”

    “It is intriguing to watch those who have been elected to weigh and determine such matters squirm under the scrutiny and active participation of their constituents.”

    What a wonderful example of complete ineptitude fueled by a seeming desire to avoid an possible conflict. Ms. Chan is hardly alone in her lack of fortitude.
