Really, it's ridiculous ranger Pancho Smith saying he doesn't have time to put up a brochure or a one-page notice on the bulletin board and at the trailhead that hikers should be aware there may be hunters with loaded guns sharing the trail!
It is indeed very likely to happen again that there are hunters with loaded guns and certainly possible that they are as trigger-happy as these two.

QwertyNerd makes a lot of sense. Seems it's a choice of citrus trees or bees --- but if the bees are gone, as they are diminishing state-wide and worldwide, so will many, many other fruits and vegetables.
Please think very, very seriously and then think again before spraying or using any pesticide such as the neonicotinoids that also kill bees.

As far as is known at this point, the only serious candidate for mayor is Schneider herself to retain her seat. Hotchkiss would be very ill-advised to run for mayor at this (any?) time.
And as for public views, Francisco was strongly in favor of Measure B, the height limitation proposal that had one of its main arguments that keeping building heights lower would retain mountain and ocean views. He was active and consistent. (What do medical marijuana dispensaries have to do with public views?) His "theological views" - what are they?!? He's been strong against further densification of the city during the long process of the General Plan Update, but is that "theological"?
As for gentrification of the funk zone, unfortunately, they all seem to support it.... or have not come up with anything other than handwringing, at most, about how to save the character of the last relatively undeveloped, unplanned area of the city.

It sounds to me that Adam's point indeed was to begin to think seriously and do something about the deferred maintenance. It will be interesting to see if he also stands up to reduce his Sup. salary and cut the office staff. No reason for them to have two full time assistants and one part-time. That would be a starter at showing the BOS is serious about doing something for the public good.

Hopefully, he will retain a criminal record even if the probation and jail time evaporate: any other public (or private) agency thinking of hiring him should be warned.

Don't see how it puts "Free Market advocacies" in contradiction to be opposed to the city's narrowing a major street. Francisco, at least, has consistently supported public views. Who says Hotchkiss is running for mayor and not for a renewal of his present council seat? He'd be very foolish to do that.

PS: Gregg Hart was on the Council then, winning along with Blum and Fairley in the 1999 election.
What was his position on the narrowing of State Street --- and what is it now when he is running again?

Narrowing State Street was a bad idea in 2000, fought unsuccessfully by numerous groups; it's a terrible idea now. Drive there on _any_ afternoon and think what it will be like when it's summer!
The alternative"? Restore State Street!

In the this week's block grant funding approved by the SB City Council, Casa Esperanza received $101,500 in grants, approximately 14% of the total. Many others also received but among those not receiving anything were the United Boys & Girls Club and City@Peace.
