Outraged Alamedan Donald Kirkland on Robert Wood's Commission's Secret Agenda: What's Really Going On?


I went to the City's website today to look at the packet for the upcoming meeting of Robert Wood's so-called Golf Commission, in which they will discuss their plans to increase the number of people golfing on, and consequently adding unwanted golf cart traffic to our city, as well as golf carts regularly parking in front of my house, and the agenda was not posted! WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE? It's not as if we don't all already know that golf balls kill children, whether through accidental ingestion, intentional introduction of excessive amounts of balls into the general environment, or the tragic yet all-too-common golf ball in the crotch. Golly gee willikers, I'm quaking with fear now!

I don't trust Robert Wood and his elk on the Golf Committee. All of them need to step down effective yesterday, and the Golf Board needs to be disbanded and replaced with an elected body so that the citizens can choose representatives who will more accurately reflect the community's desire to keep golfing to a minimum in Alameda. That kind of activity may be appropriate in a City like San Francisco, or in a specially designed golf community where the infrastructure has been designed to accommodate all possible future growth in golf cart traffic, but Alameda is a top-notch city, and golf doesn't help that.
