    Sep 25, 2014 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    With the recent sale of the historic downtown Burlingame post office on Park Road, these words from Dr. Gray Brechin, project scholar of The Living New Deal at U.C. Berkeley, come to mind: "Far more than utilitarian containers for conducting business, they are our piazzas - the places we meet one another and in doing so, see our landscapes, history, work and ourselves reflected back from their walls." In my mind, 220 Park Road, embodies the spirit of New Deal public works projects built during the lingering poverty following the Great Depression and championed by President Franklin D.

    Sep 23, 2014 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    After reading all of the latest letters from commuters with bikes requesting that Caltrain increase bike car capacity, I've noticed a real important fact that has been neglected, and that is, each and every one of the bicycle riding commuters think they are entitled to maintain their lifestyle, convenience and benefits, and that everyone else should pay for their lifestyle. They think that the local taxpayers, Caltrain, the state and federal governments, all with taxpayers' money, should pay for their convenience of taking along their bicycles onto commute trains.
