Wow!! We had one kill a deer in our backyard about 12 years ago ( we are on the creek by the highRead Moresc hool ) then about 4 years ago my wife and I were pulling in our driveway late and a mountain lion walked right in front of us. No pic though. It was big too, must have been a ale and I would guess a good 200 pounds .. So thanks for the heads up, they come up the creek sometimes from Alhambra Valley to here..

I agree with everything you say. But that is what we can see. What we cannot see so well is theRead Moreendl ess miles of roads and parking lots that have cars and trucks on them dripping anti freeze and oils, gas, you name it, onto our roads that All washes directly into our storm drains and directly into creeks, lakes, rivers, bays and oceans. Amounts of toxins far beyond the toxins of garbage. And mercury, lead, you name it. Also from factories etc. , electrical coal plants that make our power, refineries, that make our way of life possible, all pollute. Either directly into the water , sometimes unchecked, or into the air then rain clouds, and down it comes, acid rain, toxic rain, and you guessed it, right into our water and earth. You are told not to even eat fish more than what, twice a year from the Bay? While a plastic bag or cup, or cigarette butt is visible, and an eye sore, and may end up in the water, and can lead to a fish or animals demise, we are all guilty of pollution on am much grander scale. The sheer amount of toxins that go into our water ways from roads and parking lots from , yes the trucks that us just about everything we have , and the factories that made everything we own, and the way the electricity is made that powers the very computer we are both using right now, is Vastly more toxic and polluting than cups and cigarette butts. By millions of times.. IMO. This is where we need to focus our attention more. Yes, do not litter, but we need to change the way we operate, live, our entire way of life, to a clean way, not this way, and understand it is what you Cannot see that is the real threat to earth, much more than visible trash. And I hate seeing visible trash. But this is a fact. Un-visible toxins are Much more of a danger... And there are things we can do. Everyone of us, to reduce this constant stream of toxins, that gets little attention compared to six pack holders and cigarette butts or six pack plastic beer holders etc... ( I am Not saying it is not an issue, trash, only reminding people it is what you cannot see that is many times more toxic to the earth.. )

Hi. I heard about the beautiful senior housing being turned into section 8 because our cityRead Morecouncil wanted more money in their pocket but I had no idea Loaves and Fishes was moving to Main St. While it is a great cause it is Probably not the best location - I thought we were trying to create business and beautify Main St ? Any decision from our city council is purely monetary. It is frightening to hear all of their poor decisions. Honestly, I feel that Martinez has gotten worse in the last 10 years - not better. I often feel fear when I am walking by myself through town when I never did before. VoTe THEM oUt!

It is not Main Street, but Green Street I believe Loaves and fishes ay move to? Across from theRead Moreseni or cent, one block from the jail, a block form a bar, not right next to homes as now. And , just in my opinion, far enough off Main Street itself.

But I do agree, we need new people in city hall ASAP!! They have been on for years, and the lastRead Moreth ing we need is more years, and career city council politicians running our city into more development and using deception to get more development done while deceiving the people on it's purpose... And number of residents etc... Not good. Vote them OUT!
