Effective leadership always makes a difference. Wiemann,the Board Chair and Winhanger, the Executive Director seem to have refocussed with good results. Congratulations.

Chaucer's appeals to me in part because the staff knows where things are, because there's a feeling about books, and the number and type of books available are impressive.
Count me as grateful their values have prevailed.

Didn't that location -- oh so many years ago -- used to be a grocery store? Long before it was a furniture store, it had the traffic one might expect for a liquor store or grocery store.
Whether 35 spaces are too many or too few, the issue of employee parking could be reduced by BevMo giving pre-paid bus passes to employees. It is located on a main route.

Based on what I have heard, the by-standers who freaked out and called 911 bear some of the responsibility for their over-reaction. The DSS obviously compounds it. (Just because you can see something doesn't mean you can interpret it.)

Your second stop should have been the Planned Parenthood Book sale. Unfortunately, that sale has passed for this calendar year; but many out-of-print books are found there by serious seekers. A book published in 2005 is likely to have been one of them.

What rock have the proponents of measure B been living under?
When you do a single purpose measure (building height) you inherit all the existing rules pertaining to that issue, like it or not. The proponents have done us a disservice by 1) proposing such an ill-considered initiative, and 2) trying to deny they'd create a problem if the initiative passes.
Councilman Horton's letter published by the NP (quite a feat since they've turned a cold shoulder to him) makes clear that the single-purpose initiative creates many problems not anticipated by the proponents.
I guess Helene Schneider is correct when she says "as Mayor, I'll be responsible for helping to deal with it if it passes."

This problem is not new, but many faculty treat it as a surprise -- much like the auto workers who didn't see it coming.
JD is correct about UC's faculty delivering the finest public system. Sadly, when change is needed (and I am not sure what kind of change is needed) many faculty members are like global-warming deniers. Until denial stops and constructive change begins, students will continue to be the pawns.

Francisco to ask Cushman to withdraw?
Why not the other way around? Francisco is already on the City Council, and IF Cushman were win, they'd both be in clover.

There's a parable about the "Dog in the manger" which seems to fit here. In that story, the dog prevented others from using what he had no use for.

An interesting development. What Gil Garcia didn't describe was whether solar panels for electricity would be installed. If there ever was an opportunity, this the time of (re-) construction is it.
