It was with great enthusiasm that I read your August 2022 edition of the Sunset Beacon, which for me was one of the most inspirational editions I have experienced of your work, in three years of following your monthly publication.
Letter to the Editor: Save our Park From Becoming Disneyland at the Beach
The continuing privatization of our parks by Phil Ginsburg is just plain wrong and has been done without full disclosure to the public. Who voted for Doggie Diner heads in our green space?
Letter to the Editor: Kopp Column Item Dishonest
To suggest that there is any similarity between Proposition 1 and the act signed by Gov. Reagan (actually in 1967, not 1970) is preposterous. Judge Kopp must know that the 1967 act, which the sponsors said would reduce the number of abortions in California, was nullified, along with all other state abortion laws, by Roe v. Wade.
Letter to the Editor: New Supporter of “Great Walkway.”
Thanks to the closure, though, I have discovered a new route, one that I never would have taken before.
Letter to the Editor: Traffic Circle at Parker and Euclid a Hazard
I am writing to you to see what can be done about the traffic circle at the intersection of Parker and Euclid in the Jordan Park neighborhood. It is unsafe for pedestrians and cars.
Letter to the Editor: No Sympathy for Drivers’ Complaints
Emptying JFK Promenade of cars has made the park feel truly like a park the past couple of years. MLK remains open for those who want to see the park from inside a car, and buses provide a low-cost way for anyone to visit.
Letter to the Editor: Kudos to Richmond District Police
On behalf of our local merchants, I would like to thank Richmond Station Capt. Gaetano Caltagirone and the officers involved for helping protect merchants and preserve the beautiful neighborhood we live and work in.
Letter to the Editor: Road Closures Do Not Combat Climate Change
It is one thing to create new open spaces on dilapidated properties or, for example, on a tunnel top in the Presidio. It is entirely another thing to close streets used by tens of thousands of automobile drivers every day in commuting to their various destinations, which inevitably and unnecessarily causes the release of massive amounts of additional greenhouse gasses.
Letter to the Editor: Why Prop. D is Better Than Prop. E
While there are two similar-sounding housing measures on San Francisco’s November 8 ballot – Propositions D and E – only one of them will make it faster and easier to build more affordable homes and that’s Prop D: Affordable Homes Now.
Letter to the Editor: Prop. I is Climate Change Denial
Prop. I would reverse this effort, forcing car traffic back on JFK Drive and destroying the weekend compromise for the Upper Great Highway that District 4 residents support.
Letter to the Editor: No on Prop. H, Revisit Ranked-Choice Voting
Prop. H is a socialist power grab, as Mayor London Breed calls it. It’s undemocratic (actually, it’s anti-democratic), as one of its main features is to cancel elections for mayor, district attorney, sheriff, city attorney and city treasurer a year from now.
Letter to the Editor: Not-So-Slow Kirkham Street
Kirkham Street is closed to through traffic, but one would not know that simply by standing on the street. Kirkham is as active as ever; cars are simply cutting around the “slow street” barriers and driving as if it were a normal road.
Letter to the Editor: Lake Street is for Cars
… there is plenty of room on the sidewalk for walkers and wheeling strollers.
Letter to the Editor: Speeding Traffic a Major Concern on the West Side
I’ve noticed the high speed in 19th Avenue. Ive talked to bus drivers and the response its been the same: the speed of some drivers is very high and above the limits. It feels dangerous to be close to the road or even 10 feet away, close to the wall of a house or business …
Letter to the Editor: Alzheimer’s Walk on Nov. 5
For my late mom, I volunteer for the SF Alzheimer’s Walk on Nov. 5 at Pier 27 to raise awareness of dementia and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association research projects and support services …
