On Webster Street the flags are up and look inspiring as we celebrate our nation’s independence! Please join the merchants of the West Alameda Business Association as the parade turns off Central Avenue onto Webster Street ending at Lincoln Avenue and stay and enjoy Webster! Several local restaurants will be open to serve the parade audience. 

Have fun in Downtown Alameda on Thursday, July 4, and view one of the longest Independence Day parades in the world. The Alameda Fourth of July Parade is one of the best Fourth of July celebrations in the Bay Area and begins at 10 a.m. at the corner of Park Street and Lincoln Avenue. 

Alameda’s first rent stabilization law — ordinance 3148 — passed in March 2016. It discouraged high rent increases designed to profit off under-market rents or to clear tenants for major rehabilitation by speculative new owners.

“A hot tub would be good therapy for your fibromyalgia,” said the doctor. Armed with permission to treat the purchase as a tax-deductible medical expense, we went off in search of a 
suitable tub. 

We’ve all seen tubs sitting unused in backyards, dust covered, unplugged and forlorn looking. We’ve also all been assaulted by the shouting ads for “Hot Tubs, Hot Tubs, Hot Tubs, Sale of the Century,” etc. that give the industry the patina of the aluminum-siding salesmen of the last century. 

The Mariner Square-based Oakmont Senior Living community in Alameda celebrated a more than $1.5 million remodel to the senior living community June 10. The facility underwent interior and exterior upgrades that included new paint, furniture, roofing and an overall new coastal look. 
The work also included a bar and lounge with great waterside views.

Oakmont Senior Living continues to invest in its established communities like Oakmont of Cardinal Point, a continuing care retirement community and new additions to its portfolio.
