I'm for them getting them approved. provided they go through the appropriate channels, with theRead More appropriate engineering controls. that ensure they can do this without affecting the surrounding community. (I don't work for Chevron, but I know people that do) The personal from Chevron, if they are cognizant, can assure, the upgrade can be done without any impact to the community. This is what's most highly important. Who the hell wants fall out on their kids, their home? It's a simple upgrade. Old equipment is replaced with new (and more efficient) equipment. (Why? I've done this. No enivronmental issues, no outside the fence issues) ... it was non-plus, we started up our unit and it runs today, I hope this helps you Paddy. If you have another questions, please feel free to shoot them to me at angus.hanger@yahoo.com. Thank you. I work in petrol and have for over 25 years and am always available to answer questions as I an knowledgeable about.

My Orignal Comment is Here: You mean Extortionists for a Better Environment? Aye, I've dealt withRead More them before through my local union. Where is your mouthpiece Don Brown now? He went to work for another OIL COMPANY .. didn't he? Yeah, he went to where the money was didnae he? And left Denny driving his Delta 88 (I have pictures of it) that polluted more than our facility, spouting his nonsense. Ask him, he makes no apologies fae it. When you ask for a handout, never seems to make it to the community, always seems to make it to your attorneys though. Seems funny that anytime something happens, money seems to RAIN down outside the fence of a facility. But none of it, seems to make it inside the fence, to the workers. Do you have proof that this is incorrect? Please I'd love to see figures. I can tell you it never showed up in my check. Everytime there's a meeting for Contra Costa county, all of your support is from Los Angeles. Last time I checked LA isn't anywhere near Contra Costa, so why are you up in here in MY BUSINESS. I live here, I own a house here, Why are you here? You don't represent me. You don't give two shits about Crockett and you certainly don't give a shit about Rodeo, either. Prove to me and the other people reading this that you do. And that you actually LIVE HERE maybe I might render an apology. So again, why are you are here? Cause it certainly isn't for them and certainly isn't for me. And it's about time (again, as I did before with my Union Local) to call you for what you really are. You are leeches, plain and simple. You don't give two shits about Richmond and don't care what happens to them other than money. Now, tell me I'm wrong

My point is: This firm, Communities for a Better Environment ... Where are these people out of? WhoRead More do they represent? Did you vote for them? If you did, I feel sorry for you. You didn't do your homework. These people have no link to Northern California. These people are from Los Angeles. If this is what you want representing you

How are we going to house them? Take a look at rents in all of this area. There are a good manyRead More people on Social Security or who are working that can't afford both rent and food. They fall thru the cracks when it comes to any kind of help. Rent control would help, but not eliminate the problem.

Further, why have conservatives killed compassion in America? Is it because compassion acknowledgesRead More the plight of the less fortunate and this compassion is necessary if we are to fight against an America of privilege ? Are Liberals really the evil ones?
Fortified- I am Buzzlightyear >>>>>>>> July 23, 2014 at 01:49 am
James: Liberals are not evil. Neither are Republicans.Read More ____________________________________________________ You stated....."But how can conservative America hold on to their supremacy" Can you state how "conservative America" is supreme? The rest of the compassion stuff is really the greatest marketing campaign of a generation. It is pushed 24/7. It is in the fabric of discussions without reservation, being the default position. But simply not so.

I am impressed by the number of people I know personally who have been well employed in recentRead More months. By well employed I mean with good paying jobs. A few others with lesser skills found jobs with those all important bennies. Very encouraging!

How ridiculous. That's like arresting Amtrak for all of the times the cops pick up peopleRead More transporting marijuana in big suitcases in their baggage cars (it happens frequently---you'd be surprised). Amtrak has nothing to do with that----they're just transporting baggage. Same thing here---FedEx is just transporting a package; they have no clue what its contents are.

The amendments the House is passing to not penalize banks who do business with legal medical andRead More recreational pot dispensaries, and also to prohibit the DEA from interfering with state marijuana laws is all really good news! This is a step in the right direction allowing the people of their home state to be a real voice in what kind of society they wish to live in. Now that is real freedom! We'll have to see how the Senate handles it.

Sammy, it is absolutely a bubble. Incomes and job growth do not support the home prices which meansRead More that unless everyone gets a raise in the next six months (and a 20% raise at that) then this market is not sustainable. Chinese investors paying in cash is what drove the market to the absurd levels it is now in. They made their money and now they are pulling out, leaving the working joes with a lot of debt that they may not be able to reconcile. Prices have to go down unless the lab wants to hire 10,000 people and pay them enough to afford a 2 bedroom that costs half a million dollars. Good for all those vultures, I guess, who got to dump their property at obscene prices to their neighbors.

Most countries around the world require citizenship or Resident Alien status in order to purchaseRead More residential real estate. Why does our country allow foreign investors to come here to buy houses and drive up prices for everyone?
will bateson July 23, 2014 at 06:10 am
One BIG difference between 2014 and 2007 (which was a bubble) is that banks are very tight withRead More credit right now, so folks buying houses can actually afford what they are buying and not relying on prices to keep going up before their teaser loan rates jump up.
Don Gosney July 17, 2014 at 02:34 pm
Of course, there is far more to this story than what the Bay City News is reporting here. ThisRead More story goes back a very long way and is deeply faceted. It’s very easy to point a finger at an individual Councilmember when, in reality there is plenty of blame to go around. There are no innocents in this story. For instance, when the Vice Mayor swears across the room (using the F word) at another Councilmember—and does this in public—that might be perceived as toxic. When the Vice Mayor posts Facebook posts denying her actions—witnessed by so many other people—all while she is supposed to be hearing a budget report that might save the jobs of 75-100 city workers—that might be of concern to the public. And when she sends a toxic email to Charles Smith while she’s hearing another budget report, and includes the N word and twice uses the word “Cracka” to refer to white people, that might seem as toxic, too. But she’s not alone in her actions. As I wrote, there’s plenty of blame to go around. What should concern people is not so much the innocuous proposal delineated in the agenda packet but in what the Vice Mayor has said, and written in newspaper articles, blogs and emails about wanting to deny citizens their right to participate in government meetings for half of a year as punishment for saying something that she or the Mayor disagrees with. Keep in mind that according to their own rules, only the Mayor gets to decide what is disruptive. Just as she did a couple of weeks back, she took exception to the message that one speaker calmly spoke and had him ejected from the Council Chambers. Which was more disruptive—what he said or her reaction to what he said? Just as I pointed out on Tuesday night, the courts may agree with me three to four years down the road that the Mayor had no right to deny me my rights to participate in public meetings, but in the mean time I’ve been ejected from the meetings, cited by the police and possibly punished by a judge (like the previous speaker was). I may win the court settlement later on but in the mean time I’ve been silenced—and all because one person has been given the authority to play God over our freedom of speech. This reminds me so much of what the Republicans started doing a few years back by setting up fenced in “Free Speech Zones” on the other side of town. They placed police around these FSZs and proudly boasted how they were protecting our right to speak.

Jeffe' July 19, 2014 at 11:09 pm
Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)
