  1. That right, because Shirley Lau, Jim Treadaway and the rest of the BUREAU of BS have been lieing to the councilmembers about this alleged funding window risking expiration. About 20k – maybe 500k is at risk. it is not.

  2. Please get someone to check your copy. Bloggers should not make that many errors – bridge renovation project after residents an advocates opposed. There have been too many over the weeks.

  3. Jimmy was the man. Still is. I lived on Sanborn for 6 years at the porch house which unfortunately has gone by the by as well to new owners hellbent on air bnb and don’t give a rats ass about the community that house built on that street, Kiddie pool on the steps, porto parties and all. Jimmy, Indio, and Darryl always helped us out at parties and hung on the porch with us all the time. I swear for the first 4 years I lived on Sanborn I didn’t even leave the block to hang at any of the bars. I mean why do that when it was much more fun hanging with all the neighbors and the Sanborn characters. I’ll drop the old cliche: damn that neighborhood has changed.
