If Food Shift founder and director Dana Frasz and Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) Executive Director Doug Biggs get their wish, the families who live at APC will have one more resource to help them overcome some of the challenges they face.

These challenges include the isolation at Alameda Point and the inconvenience of having no supermarket nearby. Frasz and Biggs hope to help provide APC residents a kitchen that will help provide a solution to this problem.

The regular session of the 2015-2016 California Legislature currently stands in recess. Assemblyman and former Vice-Mayor Rob Bonta visited the Alameda Sun to offer his perspective on how the current session is progressing.

Bonta said that the highlight of the current session for him was the passage and Gov. Jerry Brown’s subsequent signing of the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act. The act sets a precedent by establishing a comprehensive regulatory framework for the medical marijuana industry.

Two arrests and a severe injury marred the city of Alameda’s special council meeting considering additional tenant protections last Wednesday, Nov. 4, at City Hall.

The chaos began less than 30 minutes into the meeting that was supposed to provide a blueprint on how the city would temporarily resolve the rising rent issue in Alameda. Members of the renters’ advocacy group, Alameda Renters Coalition (ARC), and other tenant advocacy groups from around the Bay Area, bombarded the hallways leading to the council chambers where the meeting was taking place.
