About this blog: In January 2002 I started writing my own online "newspaper" titled "The San Ramon Observer." I reported on City Council meetings and other happenings in San Ramon. I tried to be objective in my coverage of meetings and events, and saved my barbs for my Commentary page. I had some political differences with the City Council at that time and particularly with the majority dubbed "The Gang of Three," by the San Ramon Valley Times. In 2003 new Council members were elected and the Council was more balanced and fiscally conservative, but I continued to write the Observer until 2009. At that point I decided I wanted to concentrate on my commentaries. So I requested a meeting with the editor and publisher of the Danville Weekly about taking over the San Ramon Observer. My timing was very apropos since the parent company, Embarcadero Media, was planning to release an online San Ramon Express that April. I was offered a "blog" under the name "San Ramon Observer" for my commentaries. I like to inform residents about what is happening in San Ramon, especially on city government and local politics. When I don't have anything to write about on those topics, I just write about anything I am doing or thinking about. (Hide)

At the April 28, 2009 San Ramon City Council Meeting I announced that Safe Cat Foundation would have a booth at the San Ramon Farmer's Market on the opening day of May 2nd.
All of you who raced to the market with kitty carriers in hand looking for the Safe Cat booth were disappointed not to see us there. Elise Stewart, President of Safe Cat Foundation, decided not to bring the cats because of the rain. "It's in the mud, and you know how much cats hate water," she explained.
So if you still want to adopt a Safe Cat, head over to the PetSmart in Dublin from 10 am to noon on May 3rd for their special adoption event this weekend, or every Saturday from 10 am to noon. Safe Cat now has weekly adoption events at the Dublin PetSmart on Saturday mornings.
We shall also be at the Farmer's Market in San Ramon on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm when the sun is shining.
