My little man went last year and will attend first grade at Lincoln.Our teacher last year wasRead Morefabulo us- truly. Experienced, calm and very kind to the kids. Lincoln and the parent-teacher club(PALS! JOIN up! ) work EXTREMELY hard to make school a good experience there. There is always an extra activity to keep interest high. Kindergarten is MUCH more than it was when you went, and when I went. For instance, reading reading reading- everynight. Math, critical thinking...all a part of the curriculum. You really have to be involved. You are lucky to have your child at Lincoln! Everyone there is really good. Parents/Teachers/Kids. Welcome SuzyR!

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

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.

Since the lost lotto ticket did mention financial things, I'm sure if you click on it there will be Read Morea request for money to "share" the profits and certainly some personal information so they can get it to the "right" person. Just new wording to an old scam.

Lending institutions can do their part too by not lending to people who obviously are living beyond Read Moretheir means. I know a couple who went bankrupt. Immediately after they started getting credit card offers, and sure nuff when they applied for a couple cards they were ok'd. Now they are right back where they were before,- knee deep in debt, and the stupid companies who loaned them money are calling the families and friends listed on their records.

Let me make it clear that I have nothing but compassion for those who took reasonable mortgages and Read Morethen lost their houses through job loss, illness, and other causes of loss of income. I watched the Liars' Loans debacle, and watched as the nightly news bewailed the suffering of a man who earned $80K a year and was losing a $400K house he apparently couldn't have purchased had he stated his actual income. I saw the nightly news show story after story of people who had made misstatements of their income in order to qualify for houses they couldn't afford. It was sort of odd listening to people talk about how they had to have the huge luxury house so they chose to deliberately lie on the loan applications because they knew that they would never qualify based on their actual income. The best part was when they all thought those who were more prudent should bail them out. One of the most pernicious results of credit offers and so-called easy credit is that housing prices inflated beyond all measure of reality as the competition for units went up as people were accepted for loans that should never have been granted. Who in the world decided to permit "interest only loans?" The sole apparent reason for such loans was to permit people to speculate by purchasing and occupying a property, pay only the interest on the loan, and then flip the house for a higher price than their initial investment.
