I’ve been scratching my head and wondering if there are any smart environmentalists left in the SF Recreation and Park Department. Pouring more concrete anywhere in the world adds to the green house gas emissions and sends the wrong signal.
Are Lake Street folks somehow special, more deserving than the rest of us? There’s obviously unacknowledged favoritism accounting for the daily “inconveniences” unequally thrust upon the rest of us.
In his latest penned annunciation, Mr. Quentin Kopp makes some allegation that district elections for San Francisco city supervisors are equivalent to “dirty” ward politics that is beneath the grandeur of the city of San Francisco. I’m paraphrasing.
Some time in the not-too-distant past, perhaps 10 -15 years ago, five trees were planted on the east side of La Playa Street, between Balboa and Cabrillo. Two of the trees died years ago, while still saplings, and were removed in 2021. Of the trees remaining, two survived into 2022 but are now expired; one is still alive and thriving.
In my 43 years of living in the Sunset District of San Francisco, the farmers market is the best thing that ever happened here.
Are you aware that the promoters and owners of Outside Lands (I assume) have somehow convinced the city of San Francisco to pour a permanent concrete slab on a huge portion of the western end of the Polo Field in Golden Gate Park?
In response to St. Ignatius’ request to entirely cancel 3 Sunday markets and reduce another 7 Sunday markets to 1 block, I must point out the catastrophic impact this request will have on the sustainability of the Outer Sunset Farmers Market & Mercantile, as well as the livelihood of the 70-90 farmers, small businesses and organizations in attendance on a given Sunday and the community who have come to depend on the market.
It’s great to see voices from both the left and right, from Sandra Lee Fewer to Quintin Kopp. It’s great to see them write in long-form, not just short tweets that lead to half-formed, easily misinterpreted statements.
… we should be ever grateful that his voice is still strong. San Francisco would be infinitely poorer without him.
District One needs some help. We need the equivalent of Vision Zero, with its aim to reduce traffic fatalities. We need a Vision Zero to address the criminality that now exists in the Richmond and also address the degrading of the quality of life we see every day.
Here is my response to Mr. Norton’s recent letter to the editor.
My father gave me my first rifle and shotgun at the age of 7, and took me to the shooting range to show me how to use it and then rabbit hunting.
In his most recent column, your conservative, libertarian commentator Quintin Kopp distorts the facts to suit his opinions.
The City can only do so much to keep these newly planted trees watered enough to ensure their continued growth. It would be satisfying to see more residents make a concerted effort to keep these trees alive and healthy with some maintenance …
Mr Norton’s letter should never have been published as it pushes out the “The Big Lie” that led to the January 6 Insurrection and Committee Hearings today.
