By Jenna Lyons - Saturday Sep 2, 2017
The Abundas were just in Hawaii last month, but they wanted a taste of the island again. So the family of four headed out to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Saturday, where they joined a host of revelers to celebrate Pacific Island Culture at Aloha Poly Fest. “We like the whole aloha Polynesian culture,” said Wendy Abunda, 41. “It’s nice to be able to get some of it without having to fly to Hawaii.” Saturday marked the festival’s fifth celebration of Polynesian, Micronesian and Melanesian traditions, including song, dance and the arts.
- Canceled rally does little to stem San Francisco fears
By JANIE HAR, Associated Press - Saturday Aug 26, 2017
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The late cancellation of two weekend political rallies in the San Francisco Bay Area has done little to stem fears that unrest and violence are brewing in the city.On Saturday, a right-wing group known as Patriot Prayer has a news conference planned for a San Francisco park.The event is a late substitute for a "freedom rally" near the Golden Gate Bridge that was supposed to happen at about the same time, but was scrapped by organizers who cited threats from left-wing agitators and worries that local leaders and law enforcement would fail to protect them.Both sides were suspicious of each other."We don't trust this group. I never have from the beginning," San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said of Patriot Prayer.
- Renaming Sharon Meadow after Robin Williams gets official support
By Dominic Fracassa - Monday Sep 11, 2017
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department has given its nod of support to a renaming of Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park after Robin Williams. The effort to rename Sharon Meadow — a wide, grassy lawn at the east end of the park that is often the site of performances and celebrations — after the late comedian and actor is being led by local comedians Debi Durst and her husband, Will. The pair have worked to put on Comedy Day — an annual showcase for local comedians — at Golden Gate Park for the past 37 years. The proposal has the support of the park department and the mayor’s office, but the decision to rename the space rests with the Recreation and Park Commission.
- Weekend closures in store for Golden Gate Bridge vista point lot
By Sarah Ravani - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
For the next five weekends, the vista point parking lot at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge will be closed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to most vehicles in an attempt to alleviate traffic gridlock, officials said Thursday.Caltrans issued a permit Wednesday clearing the way for the Golden Gate Bridge District to severely restrict weekend access to the vista point through Labor Day weekend, said Priya Clemens, a spokeswoman for the Golden Gate Bridge District.Beginning this weekend, car access to the popular outlook will be blocked from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The same restrictions will apply to the parking lot at the Welcome Center on the San Francisco side of the bridge, which is controlled by the bridge district.Northbound traffic jams on the bridge have become a routine weekend problem with drivers sometimes waiting more than an hour to get into the parking lot, which only has 126 parking spaces.The popular outlook will remain accessible to visitors by foot, public transit and bicycles, Clemens added.The restrictions haven’t been met with any pushback from residents and community members, Clemens added.
