He said that his children set up a lemonade stand and that the Livermore Police and theRead MoreNeighborhood Preservation staff came and shut them down because they did not have a business license or a health permit. He states that it was an unpleasant experience for him and his children.

Thank you Ray for your assistance in this matter.

Too late, the dems will not allow it, they love illegals.

Right you are @Jow. Their whole agreement is based on fraud.

@Health Care is NOT a human right. Where the heck did you get THAT? You may or may not realizeRead Moreit, but you are singing from the Communist Manifesto songbook. If you want a program that provides services to people for free,...YOU pay for it George. Don't put a Gov't gun to my head and everyone else here in Livermore and force us to pay for your give-away programs.

George, apparently you are not educated enough to know what the word "facetious" actually Read Moremeans. I am actually well versed in what niggardly really means but many black activists are not. In addition to thinking islands can flip over and the Constitution is 400 years old, some activists took offense to the word just on sound alone. I suggest looking in Wikipedia for "Controversies about the word "niggardly"" to educate yourself on why I made my post tongue in cheek.

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.

You got me good TrueRealist. I agree that the future of The Bankhead should be put to a vote, butRead Moreno t without a viable plan/s in place for the site's future should it fail. Theaters nationwide have funding problems and a great many are joint ventures between private owners and their cities, which is probably the only way those that survive do so. I think theater venues are an important part of communities and I don't know why they have such money issues barring the fact that entertainment production is costly, ticket prices are high, and construction debt is costly. I do believe that success depends on the synergy between the Bankhead and the downtown area, i.e., restaurants and shops. It would be really helpful to see hard numbers on restaurant patronage and revenue on theater days/nights versus when the Bankhead is dark. I don't know where that info is or if it exists in the aggregate, but without it, we're all shooting from the hip. I like some of Scooby's ideas for fostering that synergy, especially a Dinner and a Show like combo, which has been done in San Jose. I have never been in favor of a second regional theater and fought against it and have never understood the supposed synergy it would have created to support the Bankhead other than some economies of scale which never made sense to me. I'm not ready to vote against the Bankhead based upon everything known (or supposedly known) now. I would like to see what plan develops between the city, the theater, and those who represent downtown businesses and I hope it is something we can believe in.

I heard this too. There had been a standoff with a suicidal man on Hillview. I'm not sure if theRead Moregun shot noises were related to that.

City of Livermore should sell its golf course. If not then City of Livermore should buy the bowling Read Morealley and remodel it along with buying Bankhead Theater. Heck City of Livermore needs to build and operate more tennis courts. Heck City should own and operate all private businesses. Did the City successfully operate the climbing wall company? City should only be operating traditional city government services.
