Richmond District SFPD officer pulls double duty to help with rain flooding

The Richmond District police station sent us this pic today of Officer Anthony Garrett up to his ankles in cold water (no boots!) trying to clear out a flooded drain at Arguello and Anza.

“He noticed that the flooding was causing pedestrians to go out into the street which was unsafe. Anthony knew that the Department of Public Works was swamped (pardon the pun) so he grabbed a shovel and fixed the problem himself,” Captain Silverman said.

Now before you all start dialing the Richmond station for flood issues, remember that you’re supposed to call 311 (or use their handy mobile app) when you see a backed up flood drain. ;)

Thanks Officer Garrett for going the extra mile!

Golden Gate Park: The toast of TV

Our very own Golden Gate Park has been in the tv spotlight recently, popping up as a puzzle on Wheel of Fortune, and showing up in a future episode of The Mindy Project. Star Mindy Kaling posted photos of her with cast and crew at the Golden Gate Bridge, on the carousel in Golden Gate Park (below) and other city landmarks.

Photos: Halloween 2014 in the Richmond District

Thankfully mother nature took a rain check and the skies cleared on Friday night. Here are some pics from the Lake Street festivities, and merchants along Clement Street that welcomed in trick or treaters. We hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

It was burgers, pizza and ice cream at the 2014 LEAP Sandcastle Contest


The winning sand sculpture from Rooftop Elementary School

The 2014 LEAP Sandcastle Contest took place on Ocean Beach last Saturday. The contest pairs elementary school classes with professional contractors, engineers and architects to design a sandcastle that gets built on the day of the event.

The theme this year was “Food, Glorious Food” and after touring the sand sculptures, it was clear what’s on the mind of hungry kids – pizza, hamburgers, candy and ice cream. Not to mention sculptures of a few porky pigs meeting their demise.

Rooftop Elementary School took top honors this year for their Candyland sand sculpture. We also liked the “Food Map of San Francisco” by Skyline Elementary of Daly City which showcased the known foods of different city neighborhoods such as pizza for North Beach, a taco for the Mission, and sushi for Japantown.

Congratulations to all the schools and businesses that participated – it was another great year!
