We are still here....

Just FYI we continue to watch Buddies Market daily. It of course is getting increasingly more difficult as the weather gets colder and concerned glen park residents get fewer (not that any of the 600 concerned have ever come out to support the neighborhood). Most nights it is just us two (can't wait to get our other 2 regulars back!).

Get out of my Trash and Recycling or else....

I really can't stand these people. And while I understand the economy is bad right now, these thieves leave a trail of strewn garbage, rats and bugs.
Yes, I called them thieves. Both city and state law prohibit the theft of recyclable materials. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW! The yearly amount lost is $500,000 which you could see as a reduction in your garbage bill but for these thieves.
What can you do about it?
1. Call the police: 415.553.0123 - The police would love a description of the vehicle and licence plate number, description of the individuals and which way they are headed.
2. Fill out this form whenever you see thieves in your neighborhood: Theft Report Form.
These guys are aggressive and hostile so be careful!!
You can read more about the recycle thieves in San Francisco (Glen Park is mentioned) here: SFGate Article.

The Hustle and Bustle of Glen Park

The sights and sounds of Glen Park.  COME AND JOIN THE PATROL and maybe you too can experience the magic of Glen Park at night.

We have seen police for the last two nights which is nice and now they are beginning to recognize us.  The consistent crew consists of Ann, Ron, Donald, Charles, Joe, R and myself.  Thank god for these guys otherwise we would be freezing by ourselves.

09.20.08 & 09.21.08

Pretty much no police out on either night. Reports of gunfire (was really a motorcycle backfire) and one squad car came to "scene".

It saddened us to wake up to Glen Park being bombed by taggers. I really hate the graffiti and know that some neighbors and businesses are scared to wipe it off for fear of retaliation. I would love to catch just one of these taggers.

If you ever see taggers in the neighborhood call the police asap.

09.17.08 & 09.18.08

Well a few neighbors have been consistently coming out to talk and "patrol".  Certainly not the numbers we ultimately want but Rome wasn't built in a day.

Thank you to everyone that has been coming out (even remote control guy who we met tonight).  It has been great getting to know everyone and their dogs.  

Here is a nice shot of our hands including a pooch paw.

"What can we do right now"

"What can we do right now" was the question posed by one individual at that meeting last Monday night. Remember that meeting? We were all fired up but this passion seems to have died down.

I have the answer. COME JOIN US ON THE CORNER OF DIAMOND AND CHENERY AT 8:45 pm. That is what you can do right now to support your community and business owners. Get out of your warm bed and meet your neighbors. We need community involvement plain and simple. We cannot rely on our already strained and stretched thin police force.

Will we see you tonight? Prove me wrong and show up.
