11/9/09 Monday coffee, Jake’s haircut

on November 9, 2009

Good Afternoon North Oakland,

Are you surprised at the outcome of last night’s Cowboys-Eagles game? Our own Jake Shonecker surely is. The young reporter and Philadelphia native will have to cut his long and curly locks after losing a friendly bet to fellow O.N. staffer Lauren Callahan. His Eagles fell to the Dallas team, 20-16. Check out our twitter page for a photo of Jake (in the top-left corner) in his un-shorn state. That’s a lot of hair! Help Jake decide what to do with it. Let us know in the comments section what ‘do you’d like to see on him! Read Jake’s article on green jobs here.

In news this Monday, a Hayward man was killed this morning in a big rig crash on the Bay Bridge. Insidebayarea and SF Gate have coverage.

Another push for urban farming. (via insidebayarea)

More ink for the contingent fighting the re-opening of Nic Nak Liquors over at We Fight Blight. That blog has been most vocal against the North Oakland Liquor store, and has rallied the community around an appeal against the Planning Commission’s decision that the store should re-open.

It was chilly this morning but the weather is fine. Looking forward to a good week here at Oakland North! Be in touch with comments and news tips at
