With all the interest in this vampire stuff the REd Cross should have a "Twilight" Drive.Read More Shirtless hunky male vamps for female donors, toothy vampirellas for the guys.

I would LOVE to donate - used to 4x a year until I lived in Europe for a while. Now the Red CrossRead More doesn't want my blood because they think I might have mad cow disease. It's a shame too - I've got the good old, common stuff that they always run low on. When is the Red Cross going to change their rules requiring people living outside the country for a while?

I wouldn't expect that to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.

I say give Eclipse the North 40 to develop as they see fit. It is unused and more centrally locatedRead More for the soccer kids from near and far. Has anyone paid attention to Piedmont's Blair Park soccer squabble? They have private mega money available to build a monster soccer facility. But it happens to be on that city's last piece of available land (Think RLP). It is being stopped in its tracks by folks unwilling to pave paradise. What is this compulsion about soccer? Baseball is the American Pastime!

@Fritz: Ms. Chambers has framed this issue in uncharacteristic clarity: "If the play area andRead More picnic areas are fenced, you have now fenced in everyone except off leash dogs and owners." Clearly this is not an option that accommodates ALL park users. Can you PLEASE explain why 1.9 acres of unrestricted off-leash area is not acceptable.

Massive private money is also going toward the mega facility at Saint Mary's with some city leadersRead More openly supporting the effort. Local sports clubs are already petitioning the college for use of the facilities and money is being waved around. Some city leaders have come out openly in support of such initiatives and college officials have had to take back statements made early in the process. The neighbors are not happy fro what I understand and there is a meeting tonight?? on the subject. Patch are you listening?

Why is Orinda so messy in the first place?
Mark Roberts April 16, 2012 at 02:26 pm
Hey, Orinda isn't "messy," but even a little litter each day over the course of a yearRead More accumulates. Orinda In Action Day is the perfect opportunity for residents to take pride in their community and contribute to a cleaner environment and a more beautiful city. It's also a very satisfying and rewarding experience. Please join us this Saturday.

Thanks for the 411 on this local enviro volunteering opportunity. I've signed my whole family, kidsRead More and all, up.
David Mills (Editor) March 28, 2012 at 12:22 pm
Eileen... thanks for signing up. Look forward to seeing you and the family up on the mountain

I would think tearing down all the structures, removing all the paving, and all other traces ofRead More people on Mt. Diablo would make it beautiful again. Glad people are saving the dirt, but there are still kids who go to bed hungry and can't read in OUR county - is there an App for that fatty?
