THE SECOND STORY | September 29th, 2016

Alameda…this image says it all. Community matters.


Lots of folks have a vested interest in a community. Alameda is no different…

Except it’s an island and feels much different than the surrounding cities that are surrounded by freeways.

Except if you just met a stranger to you, that person may know somebody else that you know right here in town.

Except if you gossip about somebody on Park Street somebody on Webster will hear what you said in about 10 minutes.

Except it’s a bit hard to hide on an island. And why would you? We’re kind of like the TV show Cheers….’where everybody knows your name.’

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
