Looks like the Tom Ness Monster has made another appearance. Actually, when it comes to Sales Tax, I will consider that, because I watch my pennies. And when it comes to Pleasanton, I make it a point to spend as little time or money in that town, especially because I don't like its city government because of its restrictions on low-income housing which forces the rest of us around Pleasanton to deal with that. And I certainly will not drive in Pleasanton without a Fuzzbuster pinging away for anybody using a speed gun or any other detection equipment one uses in a speed trap. Add to that the questionable tactics that the Pleasanton Police Department employs this time of year, both at the Graham Hitch parking lot on the east side of town monitoring the traffic coming in through Stanley Boulevard/First Street, or at the California Pool shop over on Sunol Boulevard and Santa Rosa Avenue, where they do everything in the dark, no lights, no reflect tape. So when you have police departments out there using private property for means other than what the owners use that property for, then I have a problem with that, because it may be trespassing and unlawful conversion of that private property for starters. The only reason anybody in Law Enforcement should be on private property is if they were chasing down a criminal that was using that property or investigating a crime on that property. Other than that, they stay off the property unless invited.

As for Dublin, the main reason I shop there is for the Best Buy there, and that is only after I have done my research on the web and verified that the Best Buy in Tracy does not have the article I am seeking to purchase. The reason, because in Dublin, you also pay the high sales tax and BART sales tax on top of that, just like the rest of Alameda County does. If one spends a few hundred bucks on things like digital cameras and TVs, it might not hurt to look at how much sales tax may be levied from one location to the next. And if one looks at the Sales Tax rates, Tracy's at 8.25% is less than 8.75% that Livermore has these days, or even the 9.25% that El Cerrito charges. That may not seem that much for the smaller dollar items, but if you are paying at least several hundred dollars for an item, the Sale Tax one levies where you buy the item is going to matter. You should always be mindful of what you pay for an item as well as be just as mindful of what you pay for sales tax. And for those of us who shop at Fry's Electronics, be mindful that even though you may find shopping at the one in Concord more convenient than the one closer to us in Fremont, but Concord at one time used to charge 9.25% sales tax over the 8.75% that was charged in Fremont.

And speaking of Fry's Electronics, too bad we are not closer to one in Roseville, where they still have a 6.25% sales tax. So sometimes where you purchase your stuff does matter and you should be mindful even of the sales tax.

I'm excited. These are high quality stores and will attract shoppers from throughout Alameda and Contra Costa County. A big win for Livermore.

sales tax in Roseville is not 6.25% its 7.25%....
