I am constantly getting people doing donuts behind my house near willow and mayhews. Once almostRead Morehi t parked cars on mahogany and mayhews. They didnt even stop when we all ran out and yelled at them. Every time I call the policy its to late, they are gone. It happens almost every weekend. There are still tire marks to proove it. Lots of walkers, kids bikers around here all the time.

Can you imagine living in a place that has this going on all the time. How lucky we are to liveRead Moreover here

@brandon: That's not a good argument. People should respect Newark's rules in regards to 4th ofRead MoreJuly Fireworks. I don't know if those or safe/sane but at least they should keep them on schedule and during sane hours. but nope.. we heard them well before 4th of July and after.

Nadja, I never stated that I did not work, I stated that I did not miss the daily grind of havingRead Moreto work for someone else at a normal job. I work for myself. Currently I pimp myself out as a Hacker / Tech and Editor for NS. As a Hacker, I'm able to work at the drop of a Dime, and earn a large sum of cash almost immediately. As a Tech, I currently have 9 Contracts with Clients, whom pay me to be their Dedicated Tech Support 24/7. Now due to my amazing skills, their systems rarely break down, so I don't have to keep dropping what I'm doing, and can focus on other things while a steady stream of income flows in. Then, I also get peanuts from Premium Subscriptions and Advertisements revenue from My News Site. Not much, but it will grow over time.

Many people ignore laws concerning the possession & use of illegal fireworks for the sameRead Morereason that many people ignore the laws outlawing gambling & marijuana - a complete lack of respect for the law & those who enforce it ! And that goes double for the wishes of their concerned neighbors,they obviously don't care about them or their property either. The chances of being arrested & prosecuted when hundreds of others are simultaneously doing the same thing is very unlikely & when the law isn't enforced it's tantamount to having no law at all. The obvious difference of course being that gamblers & marijuana enthusiasts are unlikely to disturb your sleep or burn your home to the ground. The use of legal & illegal fireworks is a tradition around here & little can be done to curb their use even in zero tolerance cities like Oakland (looked like Baghdad on the news). Only the arrest of those selling illegal fireworks & their confiscation has any effect at all & this results in little more than an insignificant reduction in the tons & tons available. Other than that little can actually be done. Local police & firefighters are completely outnumbered & still have more important matters to deal with like responding to reports of more serious crime scenes & putting out the fires that these fireworks start. Despite the yearly horror stories involving needless injuries,weeks of warnings & dozens ofcomplaints the use of illegal fireworks is as much a part of our collective 4th of July here in Newark as BBQ & beer & will be so in perpetuity. This year was more or less much like last year & next year will be much the same as this year. So you might as well save your breath because nothing anyone can say or do will make one iota of difference - it never has & never will. Let's just that hope they run out of ammunition by Labor Day this year !!!

Wouldn't it be nice if every time you call the police for a non "SAFE and SANE" explosion Read Morethe city council members that voted to allow the fireworks would have their phones at home get the same call also. They too should be subjected to the same discomfort that their actions have created.

I got a letter the other day informing me of some found money and for 10% the company would get meRead Morem y money. This is not a scam,( unless they ask for private info.,money upfront credit card info,etc..), but FYI, if you get one of these notices, go to the CA State Controllers web site http://www.sco.ca.gov/ Search for Unclaimed Property and you will find any unclaimed money owed you at 0% cost.
