Want to write The Great American (Historical) Novel? - come to the Merced Library
Posted by: MarkScardina - 11-12-2015, 10:07 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

On Wednesday, November 18th at 7:00 p.m., the Merced Branch Library will present:

Spinning Facts into Fiction: Writing the Historical Novel 

What is the process by which a historical novelist shapes fact into fiction, and where does the writer draw the line between truth and story? Patricia Bracewell discusses the historical characters and events behind her novels Shadow on the Crown and The Price of Blood and explains how history must inform the fiction even as the writer makes creative choices in order to serve the demands of drama.

We hope you can join us for this program, the November Merced Arts & Culture Salon.

Dear neighbors,

Since December 2014, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has been investigating the area at and around Cayuga and Rousseau as well as other low-lying areas of the city that are prone to flooding during heavy rains.

Please join Supervisor Scott Wiener and the SFPUC on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, 6:30pm-8:00pm for a follow-up to the 5/13/15 community meeting as we share the results of our work to date and next steps. The meeting will be held at the Ingleside Police Station Community Room, 1 Sgt John V Young Street. The nearest BART station is Balboa Park.

This meeting will also be an opportunity to speak with our program staff and hydraulic engineers about the modified and expanded Floodwater Grant program, which now includes other types of eligible projects such as flood walls, doorway adjustments, and raised grades, in addition to backflow preventers and removable flood barriers. We encourage property owners to look into this innovative program. More information about the Floodwater Grant program and other ways to prepare for the rainy season can be found on our website at www.sfwater.org/stormprep.  

 We hope to see you next Wednesday, November 4.  Please feel free to invite your neighbors. Thank you, and please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

Estimados vecinos:

 Desde diciembre de 2014, la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de San Francisco (SFPUC por sus signas en inglés) ha estado investigando el área en y alrededor de las calles Cayuga y Rousseau, así como otras zonas bajas de la ciudad que son propensas a las inundaciones durante las fuertes lluvias.

 Únase con el Supervisor Scott Wiener y la SFPUC el miércoles, 4 de noviembre 2015, de las 18:30 a 20:00 en el salón Comunitario de la  Estación de Policía de Ingleside ,1º de la calle Sargento John V. Young, San Francisco, para un seguimiento de la reunión de la comunidad del 13/05/15 y compartir los resultados de nuestro trabajo hasta la fecha y próximos pasos.  La estación más cercana del BART es la del Parque Balboa.

Esta reunión también será una oportunidad para hablar con nuestro personal del programa de Subsidios para el manejo de inundaciones y con los ingenieros hidráulicos sobre el programa modificado y ampliado de Subsidios para el manejo de inundaciones, que ahora incluye otros tipos de proyectos elegibles, tales como muros de contención, ajustes del umbral, desniveles elevados, además de dispositivos anti retorno y barreras removibles contra inundaciones. Animamos a propietarios en este innovador programa.

 Más información sobre el programa de Subsidios para el manejo de inundaciones y otras maneras de prepararse para la temporada de lluvias se puede encontrar en nuestra página web: www.sfwater.org/stormprep

 Esperamos verlos el miércoles, 4 de noviembre. Siéntanse libres de invitar a sus vecinos.

Gracias y por favor, comuníquense si usted tienen cualquier pregunta o preocupación.

SFPOA -- PSA -- Body Worn Cameras
Posted by: MarkScardina - 10-09-2015, 09:51 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

[Image: a234ac06071c639f3394ce0d_590x152.jpg]

By now, we all know that Body Worn Cameras (BWC) are coming to the SFPD. The POA has been part of a "working group" that was established by the San Francisco Police Commission and the department. A draft policy has now been submitted to the Police Commission. The San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, the OCC, and the ACLU were also part of this "working group", even though the ACLU did not attend a single meeting. These organizations now believe that members should not be allowed to view video footage prior to writing an incident report or providing a statement to an investigator. The POA adamantly disagrees. In order to provide the most complete, accurate, and thorough report, our members must be allowed to view any and all video footage of an incident. In an ongoing effort to get our message out to the community, the POA has produced a Public Service Announcement (PSA) stating our position. 


Martin Halloran

SFPOA President
