Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I thought you all were on top of this sitch.

What’s your long-term plan, DPR? Oh, I know, give you all more money. But if that’s not going to happen, what if we just take this whole statue thing out? Would you like that DPR?

Anyway, I think KKKatie is still in the hoosegow, but SFNOB(?) and cat-face have taken over the reigns…

Well, It Appears That Rec and Park is Getting the Upper Hand Against Graffiti on the McKinley Statue

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

It goes back and forth, but lately, RPD has been in the game.

(Perhaps local real estate interests have the ear of the powers that be these days.)

Here’s what 2011, 2010, 2010, and 2010 looked like.
