I posted the following 5 days ago Maurice. You ignore it and don't support your position. Here'sRead Moreyou r chance again: "Maurice. Your comments expose your absolute ignorance of the time and energy it takes to serve in the council positions. I suggest that you go schedule a meeting with one or more of them so that they can enlighten you about the demands of the job, the meetings that they have to attend, the homework they have to do to get and stay up to date on the issues. It is stunning to me that you and so many others lack the imagination or insight regarding this. Your shoot from the hip, loaded comments lack foundation and can't stand up to scrutiny. "That's why a token compensation, say a couple hundred dollars a month, might be appropriate to offset the actual expenses of a part-time elected official."? Absurd! Stop randomly cutting and pasting outdated material Maurice and start thinking or get help doing so." This is the second or third time now that you have reposted this very out of date material. Look at the first paragraph. You are misleading people and misrepresenting responses by reposting comments over and over. In short, you are abusing communication on Patch. Stop it.

In my opinion, full-time employee=full-time benefits and part-time employee=part-time benefits. Read MoreEle cted officials should earn a stipend for food and travel expenses as many of them already hold full-time employment with some sort of medical benefits or are retired, hopefully with some sort of medical coverage/pension. I can only speak for Livermore's elected officials as I have had a lot of interaction with all except one. They work hard, often times very long hours as Smitty mentioned in a previous post. I am not defending them; I am only stating what I know to be true from first-hand experience. They deserve compensation, however the trick is finding the balance and making sure proper checks and balances are in place to prevent abuse at the taxpayer’s expense.

Perhaps Alice, your helping could be focused on George who replied to my humor withRead More"Apparently you are not educated enough", "..or maybe you are just ignorant of the English language." and "...and do you have issue with that word too because it contains the letters that spell out homo?" Bring that bitchiness to bear on a better target. I would also say that sarcasm and humor are sometimes more difficult to express in an online forum lacking context. But then again, assuming an intent to ridicule or bully on somebody else's part just because you didn't get the humor might belie some insecurity as well. I will confess however to associating with smart asses, class clowns, future stand up comedians, and others of excessively dry wit in my youth. But, I never bullied, well unless they needed it....and it usually included the deployment of an atomic wedgie with the recipient left hanging on a door knob. Or so it was alleged....

Desert Rat April 20, 2014 at 01:47 PM
Armalloy, I think the big problem is that the Bankhead isn't the "keystone" of that area. Read More If it were, then it wouldn't be in financial difficulty. The answer to me is to bring more popular forms of entertainment to the theater. But, that costs money and that money has to come from somewhere. Big name entertainment wants to make money. They can either play larger venues where the tickets can cost a little less due to higher quantity, or they can find small venues but charge out the wazoo for a ticket to make up the difference. I would be willing to pay a greater amount for an act that I really want to see, but I may be in the minority on that one. Also, keep in mind we have the Wente concert series which seats over double the 500 at the Bankhead. If I were a performer, the choice would be clear in Livermore.
armalloy April 21, 2014 at 09:37 PM
Have you looked at what Wente is offering? And they only offer 6 concerts. I love the restaurant,Read Morean d I love their wine, but I've never seen an act there I wanted to go to. I have enjoyed many of the eclectic acts at the Bankhead, and paid good money to see them. That said, I'd love it if they'd get rid of some of the dreck they put on, and do more of what Yoshi's does- which is to market to younger people. I'm not sure what the average age of the Bankhead audiences are, but most of the performances I've been to skew to older demographics- often elderly demographics. To be a money maker, they've got to start pulling in the under 40 crowd, and we could do that. A lot of really great alternative music bands would not charge a lot, but would love to come here- however, that would require the Bankhead had some contacts in the world of younger music, and I'm not sure they do. But that said, the death of the Bankhead would be a real buzz kill for our downtown. I think you are underestimating the impact the demise of the Bankhead would have on our city. But maybe we'll find out if you're correct, if the Bankhead does go under. Time will tell, I guess.
Desert Rat April 22, 2014 at 01:07 AM
I would venture a guess that Wente knows exactly the kind of acts that will sell out. It isn'tRead Morecoin cidental that all these 60's, 70's, and even some 80's bands are back to touring. Money comes from those usually 30 and older. But even more so from the 50's and 60's crowd. Stand in line at the concert merchandise stands at any concert these days and you can watch baby boomers shelling out huge amounts for T-shirts, hats and other trinkets. This is after forking over whatever the price of the ticket was. But, there are major events that draw a younger crowd. However, they are usually very large venues like Coachella, EDC, etc. I can't see a person in their 20's willing to kick down $500 for a ticket to see their favorite band at the Bankhead. But I could see a person in their 50's do so. Hell, I've done it myself in Vegas in order to sit in comfort in a very small venue, enjoy a drink and watch a band from my youth.

Those are good questions, Stan. It would be good to know what current law allows to ensure peopleRead Morev oting actually have the right to a vote. Do we need the voter ID law to legally stop people from claiming they are someone they are not? Do the polling workers currently have any tools to stop it?

As an election official in my precinct, I am sworn and do my best to insure that every legitimateRead Morevo te is counted, and that there is no impersonation of a legitimate voter by someone else. I have served as Inspector (the election board member in charge) in the precinct where I live for elections over at least four decades. Requiring voters to show their ID at the polls will help assure that the results of an election are not skewed by those who would cancel out legitimate ballots.
Becky April 21, 2014 at 11:25 AM
Tasking poll workers to insure that there is no impersonation of a legitimate voter, without giving Read Morethem the power to require an ID, seems like a pretty weak system. We need to give some power to those who enforce our laws.

Teresa April 16, 2014 at 12:47 PM
I believe we should always be good stewards of the earth but not to the point where we destroyRead Moreourse lves and create poverty within our communities by not being able to use and develop energy from natural gas, oil, and other natural resources. It is becoming known that the climate change/global warming EPA are contributing to ill-changes of the earth and are pushing the climate change agenda for the "green" of money. Look at who they are and how they are prospering from it. Watch the documentary: http://www.bluebeatsgreen.com---- and do research on who is making money on the false models and push of climate change and what the "green movement" is actually doing and how it is destroying the beauty and preservation discussed in your post. There are six billion people on Earth, a colder climate and/or less carbon dioxide would have devastating effects worldwide. Thousands and thousands of studies and experiments prove that more carbon dioxide produces better fruits, vegetables, trees and almost any sort of plant life. Most of the temperature increase happened before 1940 (Before most carbon dioxide was released by cars and factories). We can be good stewards and also use the natural resources within our earth to create energy and jobs to live healthy and feed the world. Man is not the evil CO2 contributor: read the article from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2096277/Global-warming-James-Delingpole-claims-green-zealots-destroying-planet.html “There is no convincing evidence that human release of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases is causing, or will cause in the future, catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere or disruption of the Earth's climate.”Oregon Petition, from the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, signed by over 17,000 international scientists including more than 2000 of the world's leading climatologists, meteorologists and planetary / atmospheric scientists. We need CO2 for the world to BE green--we are killing our forests and water. Our local politicians are controlling our water in CA by NOT planning for times with less rain. In ancient times even those people understood to be wise and prepare for worst times--build reservoirs!! Don't drain our lakes or take away our reservoirs and then control us by telling us we have no water, and need to limit our use when we could have been prepared.

Teresa, You wrote, "Thousands and thousands of studies and experiments prove that more carbonRead Mored ioxide produces better fruits, vegetables, trees and almost any sort of plant life." You know that we're not plants, right? More CO2 has a slight effect on plant growth, but not so much that it would offset the damage from increased insect activity caused by warming and droughts, extreme temperatures, etc. ---------------------------------------------------I really wonder why nobody talks about population control anymore. I think it's because countries want to have as many people as possible to fight their wars.
