“Be kind, say hello, ride slow, and enjoy shared spaces.”
I discovered Golden Gate Park’s car-free JFK Drive. More accurately, car-free JFK let this longtime San Franciscan discover the old park in a magical new way.
In this new year, many Americans are no longer celebrate the arrival of it – they are celebrate survival of the old year!
Many thanks to the editors, writers, photographers, columnists, interns, delivery team, bookkeeper and others who work together to provide our community with its neighborhood newspaper.
I’m proud to move forward a proposal to protect and establish Cantonese language programs at City College of San Francisco.
Residents should assume that redistricting is done fairly — distributing residents as evenly as possible while taking community interests and geography into account.
The actions of one city department head are further fraying the nerves of westside residents already battered by almost two years of the COVID-19 pandemic; people who are just trying to shop, get to medical appointments, get their kids to school and visit friends and loved ones.
I am one of your many neighbors (hello from the Outer Richmond!) who believes the Upper Great Highway should remain transformed as an oceanfront promenade park all day, every day year-round.

In 1874, House of Commons member Benjamin Disraeli declared: “Upon the education of the people of this country the fate of this country depends.” In the Nov. 9, 2021 Wall Street Journal, columnist Gerard Baker contemplated “sanity re-asserting itself” in the United States. He identified “lunacy” in our country as: “The capture of the public discourse by the lunacy of righteous wokery, in which math is racist, logic is a tool of white supremacy, merit is privilege and mothers are ‘birthing people.’”
Wow, I’ve never seen the residents of the Sunset District so fired up as they are over the continuing closure of the Upper Great Highway.
This four-lane Highway closure stands out as being done without lawful authority and through an undemocratic policy overreach by non-elected bureaucrats and commissioners.
