List: How $248 Million Will Improve S.F. Streets 

Wednesday, May 25 2011

Mayor Ed Lee has proposed spending $248 million to improve city sidewalks and streets. What would the money pay for?

• Getting the pot smell out

• Creating handicapped bike lanes

• Installing "smart meters" and then replacing them after they've been stripped for parts

• Three city workers' pensions

• A campaign to raise awareness of the need for adequately surfaced streets, especially among poor and minority pedestrian populations

• Installing traffic signals that are easier for cyclists to ignore

• Mostly just cleaning up after Bay 2 Breakers

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
