Ahh, you could have said a few bucks and checked-out the one I donated to BHS!

The late charges I would incur would be more than I paid for it

Local motion

I was kind of hoping that the last election of Beach and Colson would reinforce this person's perspective since neither of them are tied to developers or rent controllers. But I don't hear either of them speaking up on either threat. Someone has to counter Nagelism in Burlingame

Here is one of my least favorite parts of Measure R verbiage. Right at the beginning it says "The People of Burlingame find and declare:"

(c) Burlingame is one of the most expensive communities in which to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, with median home values over $1.8 million according to Zillow research. According to several measures such as Zillow and Trulia, the median rental prices for market rate rentals in the City surpass $4,500 per month.

I think Stanger would be pleased to learn the situation from 1926 when he arrived has remained stable.

Joe, I wasn't sure where to post this SM Daily Journal piece about Burlingame's own EARTHBEAM, but being only just a tad short of running a business for 50 years seemed good enough-- thanks Austin, for a great article on a very special store, run by special people. Broadway will really feel empty with this loss, methinks. I hope that the nice market down the block will be able to fill the niche, somehow. Thanks, David, Anne and company for all the good times--we've all really appreciated your presence and devotion to "clean eating!"

I was very sad to hear the Earthbeam will be closing last night. I don't think Broadway will ever be the same without the store and the the Hinckles.
