From our house near the High School. We went out at 11 30 and it was hazy. We drove to the Marina,Read Morel ooked clearer that way, but it was not. Then we drove all the way out Alhambra valley, but it was even worse, by time we got back home it was clear. lol. We should have stayed put..

Thank you Michelle, unfortunately you are living with what goes on outside l&f in which nobodyRead Morea ssociated with l&f wants to address. The service they provide is essential of that there is no question. They do have security guards inside but there is no concern about what goes on outside or during their off-hours. It's no wonder that the director lives in Lafayette and hasn't brought l&f closer to his community or his home. The senior center is the only place in Martinez that provides services and needs for the senior citizens in Martinez. The staff as well as the volunteers of the senior center work very hard to provide services for their members too and there is a real concern that many members of the senior center that will cease using the center due to safety issues etc., and not just during the l&f meal times. I as well as the other members of the senior club deserve more consideration and maybe even some respect rather then the short-sightedness of the l&f staff whom I doubt are suffering your issues because they don't live where you do. Note too that there was no community notification of this move and now that it is happening they are working very hard to convince everyone that this will effect just how good it will be - after the fact of course.....

Incidentally, I did provide a statement of information including the concerns to the Gazette theRead Morenex t day following the presentation to the senior citizens club board members by the l&f director and for some reason I guess they didn't think there was enough interest in it to do a little research and inform the rest of our community.

As a member of the Martinez Senior Board of Directors, I would like those of you reading these toRead Morekn ow that the Board, on Monday at its regular meeting, UNANIMOUSLY voted to appose the relocation of Loves & Fishes from its current location to that of the Green Street location. Speaking strictly for myself I am concerned for the following:1. The safety of our seniors (who I believe are mostly women). 2. Parking - If many of the clients of L&F truly drive to lunch (as we were told by Mr. Gerson). where will they park? Mr. Gerson stated that they were going to upgrade the parking in the rear of their new facility. I don't believe there will be enough parking for their staff let alone client parking. I truly believe that this decision should be delayed until all the interested/concerned parties have a chance to air their concerns and solutions are found for them before moving the entire operation.

From what I heard a woman was heading to ER to visit a sister, or go herself, and hit the wireRead Moreholdi ng up the telephone pole. It took out power for 1800? I think. Most came back on soon. Ours came back on at about 12:30 or 1 pm. It was so loud. Happened at about 4 am, and sounded like lightening bolts and thunder. Seriously. Scary. Glad no one was seriously injured. We only lost some ice cream and frozen dinners in the freezer. Power was out for over 8 hours at our house. Everything else is ok..

Absolutely a problem and I am amazed by the amount of people who don't see it that way.This isRead Moreexact ly how kids and adults alike get killed.It seems that they think that under normal cercumstances nothing ever has happened,so how dangerous could it be.They never stop to think that its when thing don't happen normally is when an accident occurs... That's what makes them accidents...By that point its already to late.I live out in Alhambra Valley and more then a couple of times I have witnessed local kids riding Atv's riding without helmets .Each time I ask them where their helmet is?When they respond ,I always(In my hardest voice tell them,"I don't want to see them riding without a helmet",then I throw in that"I don't want there brains scatterd on my driveway".I get a kick out of how they are left short for words.I also think that any extreme type sports that are on T.V.should be required to ware the proper protection...All to often they show kids riding skateboards,bicycles,motorcycles,ECT without pads or helmetsIt should be outlawed...
