Being in Oregon, getting a special plate is cheaper than in CA – this number would run you just $20 total:

I’ll tell you, Supervisor Scott Wiener, for one, lives in fear of running afoul of these people, the very same people who vandalize the “no dogs allowed” signs our Feds put up on certain parts of our Federal lands:

Our Feds wonder why Bay Aryans can’t abide the rules the rest of America accepts with no trouble at all…
So look out, little Western Snow Plover. The dog pacs of the world say that you’re nothing special and that, in fact, you don’t even exist – they say there’s no such thing as a Western plover anything. OK fine.
As seen at Ocean Beach near Taraval, 1200mm focal length:
Good luck, little plover.

I’ll note the Oregon plates:

Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six.
The only thing better would be “Oregon” in there instead of “Washington”

Now I’m no narc. But if you are:
Did you know that the State of California loses millions of dollars a year in revenue from California residents who unlawfully register their vehicles in other states or countries?
Did you know that vehicle registration fees are due immediately upon accepting employment or establishing residency in the State of California?
Did you know that California law permits only 20 days to complete the process of registering your vehicle without paying a penalty?
The three most common reasons for not completing the registration process are:
- People are unaware of California registration laws.
- People are evading payments of registration fees and taxes.
- People are unable to comply with air pollution control laws.
Include the following information:
- State or province in which vehicle is registered. Mexican plates cannot be investigated without a physical address where the vehicle’s owner resides.
- Vehicle license number
- Date and time the vehicle was observed
- Make, model and color of the vehicle
- Location where the vehicle was observed (street(s) and city)
- Any additional comments and descriptive information
Flyers Just Posted All Over Town: $5000.00 REWARD – MISSING PERSON – SEAN SIDI – MEDICALLY DEPENDENTTuesday, July 16th, 2013
A reward has just been offered.
Click to expand:
WHEN: July 14, 2013 between 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
WHERE: On Broderick between Fell and Oak opposite Peet’s coffee.
There is parking in the DMV lot
WHAT: Pick up new fliers with the Reward Offering. Receive a location assignment for posting of fliers.
Sidi Friends and the San Francisco Community,
We would like to express our gratitude for all the tremendous support that we have received from you. So many of you have brought us food, donated money, spent hours posting fliers and helped in any way possible. This outpouring of love and kindness has kept us going in the absence of our beautiful son Sean.
We have yet to receive a single clue of Sean’s location. As many of you know, we have placed fliers all over San Francisco, Marin, and some in the East Bay. We have sent search parties from San Francisco all the way to the Oregon border. Last weekend, Claude (Sean’s dad) and two friends flew up to Montana to the Rainbow Gathering. This was a gathering of as many as 10,000 hippies and transient individuals. Some of the Rainbow family were in the park when Sean disappeared and it was speculated that he might be at this gathering. Unfortunately, Sean was not at the event, however, Claude and his friends managed to spread the word and hand out hundreds of photos and fliers.
At this point it is time to bring the search to the next level. We are now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Sean’s safe return. We are hoping this will stimulate further interest and some possible solid leads. As a result, we need your help to post these new fliers and help spread this information.
If you are able to help us out, please join us this Sunday, July 14th. We will have 6,000 freshly printed fliers available to distribute. There are specific neighborhoods/locations that we would like to be certain to cover, however, if you prefer you have the option of placing the fliers in your own neighborhood. Be sure to bring a staple gun or tape (or both).
Thank you so very much,
The Sidi Family”
If You Think Not Making a Right Turn at 6th and Market Street is Somewhat Verboten, Just Try Making a LeftFriday, March 8th, 2013
As this driver just did, loaded up with household goods for a trip back up north to Oregon or Washington or whichever state is named on the license plate.
Click to expand
What drivers do is get stuck on Market outbound and then they see the No Left signs one after the other, 2nd, New Monty, 3rd, 4th, 5th and then they get frustrated and make a left on 6th Street, as here.
And when you make that kind of move, the cops can see you from all around.
(What we should have are signs saying No Left Turns Next 2 Miles, or something, like what we have on 19th Avenue, an official State Highway.)
Of course, if the driver were on Market heading inbound at this very same intersection, then a right turn would be mandatory and going straight just might get her a ticket as well. The thing about that, tho, is that the chances of getting a ticket for not turning right is way less than 1% but, well, making a left you are just begging for a ticket.
(Which you can just throw away once you get back to home state, if you want, IDK.)
The Feds Make a Deal to Set Aside More Space for Western Snowy Plovers, San Francisco’s Cutest BirdsThursday, June 21st, 2012
The Center for Biological Diversity is crowing about more room being designated for the Western Snowy Plover along the west coast.
San Francisco isn’t getting more space for these critters but they already have as much as they need here now, not that some area dog owners agree with the way things are these days.
Anyway, here are some San Francisco Snowy Plovers and the also the deets of the new agreement with the Feds are below.
(Oh, and remember, as always, plover rhymes with lover.)
A snowy plover on Ocean Beach _not_ being harassed by a dog:
Now, Ocean Beach Dog, ooh, somebody over there got an off-leash ticket from the Feds a looooong time ago. (Can you guess what year by looking at the website design? Sure you can.) Oh well. Well, the Feds don’t like Ocean Beach Dog and people what behave like Ocean Beach Dog. The Feds consider us Whacko City, USA because of outfits like OBD, oh well.
Most dogs don’t bother the boids, of course. Can you see the snowy plover?
But some dogs do harass the birds. (These aren’t actually snowy plovers near Lawton and the Great Highway but the dogs don’t know or care about that.)
(Get those Ocean Beach birds, good boy!)
And here’s the sitch up in Crissy Field:
See the birds, see the unleashed dog?
Is is surprising to you that an unleashed dog could find and chase these plovers? What was surprising to me was to hear that this particular boid flew up from Morro Bay (where it was banded and which is like way south of here) all the way up to the Marina District:
Keep on keeping on, plovers:
PORTLAND, Ore.— In response to a Center for Biological Diversity lawsuit, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today designated 24,527 acres (38 square miles) of critical habitat to protect the Pacific Coast population of threatened western snowy plovers in Washington, Oregon and California.
“Protecting critical habitat will help this lovely shorebird continue on the path to recovery,” said Tierra Curry, a conservation biologist at the Center. “Species with federally protected habitat are more than twice as likely to be moving toward recovery than species without it, so this puts a big safety net between plovers and extinction.”
Western snowy plovers breed primarily on beaches in southern Washington, Oregon, California and Baja California. Today’s designation includes four critical habitat units in Washington (covering 6,077 acres), nine units in Oregon (covering 2,112 acres) and 47 units in California (covering 16,337 acres).
Snowy plovers were listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in 1993, when the coastal population had dropped to 1,500 birds and plovers no longer bred at nearly two-thirds of their former nesting sites. That Endangered Species Act protection allowed the population to increase to more than 3,600 adults by 2010.
Plovers are recovering but still face many threats, including widespread and frequent disturbance of nesting sites by humans, vehicles and off-leash dogs; crushing by off-road vehicles; global climate change; pesticide use; and habitat loss.
The western snowy plover was first granted 19,474 acres of critical habitat in 1999. In 2005 the Bush administration illegally reduced the critical habitat to 12,145 acres, eliminating protection for thousands of acres scientists believed necessary for the snowy plover’s survival and abandoning key habitat areas crucial for recovery. In 2008 the Center sued over the unlawful reduction of the plover’s habitat protections, leading to a settlement agreement with the Service and today’s revised designation.
Today’s final rule includes the reinstatement of habitat areas identified by government scientists as essential that were improperly withdrawn in 2005; inclusion of some areas not currently occupied by plovers but important for their recovery; and addition of habitats such as back-dune systems in an attempt to offset anticipated effects of sea-level rise caused by climate change.
The western snowy plover is a shy, pocket-sized shorebird that weighs less than two ounces and lives for three years. Plovers forage for worms, insects and crustaceans in wet sand and in kelp that has washed ashore. The word “plover” is thought to come from the Old French”plovier” or “rain bird” because plovers were seen on sandy French beaches during spring rains.
The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 375,000 members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.”
Oh, and also remember that San Francisco is for Plovers:
