Here’s What It Looks Like When the SFPD Hands Out a Bunch of Sit/Lie-Type Tickets in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

I suppose these people were in sleeping bags like at 11:00 AM or so and that attracted some attention from the SFPD?

Does our newish sit-lie law even apply to this location at this time of day? IDK.

But once you start accumulating these kinds of nuisance citations, you might start thinking about moving on down the road to a new town…

Let me just say that if you get all worked up fretting about the trash that’s going to be left after the hippies leave after 4:20 PM, then THERE”S SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU.

KEEPING THE PANHANDLE WEIRD: 2015 “Now Festival” Runs April 19th-25th – A Massive Schedule – “Slackline City?”

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Get all the deets from Fun Cheap SF.

Note the carve out for the afternoon of Annual 420 Day, held, as always, on April 20th.

Note Slackline City in a city park – is that legal? IDK. We’ll see. (IMO, RPD’s signs banning affixing items don’t match our Park Code.)

Note Chalk The Panhandle – is that legal? Not that I know of. Again, we’ll see. (Chalk ads like those on the sidewalks of Fulton promoting the Now Festival last year could certainly get NL in Dutch with Dennis Herrera.)

Do the people at NeighborLand, people like Dan Parham, Candy Chang, and Tee Parham, know about these issues? Are they aware? I know not.

An Oddity: A Big Rig-Style Smokestack Atop a Van Assisting With the Heist Production in Haight Ashbury

Friday, April 10th, 2015

First up, some signage to learn the locals that our Dear Leader is fully on board with the production of this heist movie, so step off, hippies:

And is this a rolling coal diesel exhaust coming out of this van parked on Stanyan, the better to power a phalanx of electronic gear?

7J7C5141 copy

Sure looks that way.

I’ve never seen a smokestack on the top of a van before…

Another Year, Another New Leader for SFPD’s Park Station – Read the Greetings from Captain John Sanford Jr.

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Here it is:

“Greetings,

My name is John Sanford Jr. and it is with great honor to serve as the new Commanding Officer of the Park Police district.  I am humbled by the opportunity to serve with the women and men of the Park Police district.  Park Police station is a very iconic station filled with outstanding officers and a great history.

I am equally elated to serve the Park district community and the various Board of Supervisor members that represent this fine district.  I am fully aware that many members of the community are frustrated with the transition of yet another commanding officer here at Park Station. I truly understand the frustration, but promise you I bring full dedication and commitment to the post. 

I personally know both Captain Greg Corrales and Captain Raj Vasawani and despite two different styles, both are highly intelligent and dedicated to duty.  I understand both have served recently with overwhelming commitment.  Personally, I am glad these fine captains have raised the bar; I believe they have set an expectation which will only benefit this deserving community.  To this end, I will serve with professional integrity. I will encourage and embrace collaboration and partnership with the community. My goal is to foster a sustainable process with continuity, which will assist us with reducing crime and improving the quality of life for those who dwell within our borders.”

Please feel free to e-mail me: John.sanford@sfgov.org

In the spirit of community policing, I look forward to the task ahead!”
