Raccoons just love San Francisco. Remember?
“Via the Legion of Honor’s Facebook, comes a link to this outstanding capture from Plomomedia’s Flickr Photostream.
Well, if the well-paid gardeners and maintenance workers of Strybing Arboretum carry around cans of catfood for the red foxes, can’t bus operators have a little fun too?”
What items tempt you the most when you scan parked cars for Objects in Plain View - would it be a laptop computer, an iPod, maybe a backpack? Well, be careful, cause when the SFPD baits cars for sting operations in Golden Gate Park, they sometimes use all three. (It’s almost like entrapment, or something. So tempting these parcels are, next thing you know, it’s smashy smashy!)
From the Richmond District Blog comes a sneak peek of Richmond Station Police Captain Richard Corriea‘s next weekly update for the Richmond District Police Community Police Forum. Read an entire entry below.
Yes, it’s MLK near the Friend Gate of Strybing Arboretum. Perhaps the cars huddle together for safety?
“On July 25, 2009 Richmond [District] officers working in plain clothes staked out a car at Middle Drive and Bowling Green Drive in Golden Gate Park. There were several items of value in the car, including, a backpack, computer and an IPOD. The officers knew from experience that an auto burglar would find the car an appealing target. Indeed, several hours into the stakeout an individual burglarized the car, and he was immediately arrested. A subsequent search of the suspect turned up evidence from a theft committed nearby earlier in the day and narcotics. The suspect, who has been arrested forty-nine times, including thirty-one times for felonies, was booked for burglary, possession of stolen property, theft and a narcotics violation. This individual is likely responsible for several auto burglaries daily.”
How many car windows do you have to break to get a rap sheet this long - hundreds, thousands?
On It Goes…
Do you crave Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the United States Green Building Council? Of course you do. So that’s why you need to instruct a gardner to get atop your latest project and start planting.
As here in the San Francisco Presidio, where the old Cavalry Barracks (the barracks on Schofield Road, not the Schofield Barracks) are getting a makeover. Look to the right as you speed through the Presidio from the Richmond District towards the Golden Gate Bridge in order to witness the progress. Soon, it will be just like the green-roofed California Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Contemporary Art Museum (CAMP).

Can these roofs handle the change from red to Green?
PRESIDIO CAVALRY BARRACKS TO RIDE AGAIN. “LIVING ROOF,” PRESERVATION OF ORIGINAL FIXTURES HIGHLIGHT MAKEOVER OF HISTORIC BUILDING
The cavalry played a significant role in the life of the Presidio for more than 150 years, from 1776, when the first horse-mounted soldiers arrived with the Spanish army until the 1940s when the Presidio sold the last of its horses following World War II. In the early part of the century, cavalry soldiers trained at the Presidio before shipping out to fight the war in the Philippines. Later, they would protect the state’s newly created national parks, Yosemite and King’s Canyon.
Home for the cavalry soldiers of the time was a two-story, wood-frame barracks up the hill from the stables. Now, work is beginning on a complete and total rehabilitation of the 107-year old building. The project is expected to be completed by the middle of October.
“It’s a wonderful, rich building with a lot of character,” says Rob Wallace, an architect with the Presidio Trust. “Unlike a lot of buildings that have undergone similar rehabilitations, this building’s pretty much in tact. We’re really taking it back to the 1902 plan.”
