It’s a minor miracle that Mimi Pond ever made it out of Oakland — or maybe that it took her so long to leave. The cartoonist and illustrator’s prolific career has included work in the National Lampoon, the New York Times and more, along with television credits with “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” and “Designing Women.” She even wrote the pilot episode of “The Simpsons.” But first, Pond was a starving artist in Oakland.

- Richmond mayor wants to scrap city’s public Housing Authority
By Kimberly Veklerov - Saturday Aug 19, 2017
Richmond Mayor Tom Butt is proposing the dismantling of the city’s Housing Authority, saying that diminishing funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development make the agency’s continued operations untenable. Butt said dissolving the Richmond Housing Authority would not eliminate existing public housing, but would essentially divorce the city from financial responsibility over the subsidized homes. He said the city has spent millions to maintain the properties because HUD has not provided its fair share for upkeep. In calling for the authority’s elimination Friday, Butt requested that the authority first investigate the inadequacy of its federal funding levels.

- ‘Monster in the Mission’ housing developer making new pitch amid protest
By J.K. Dineen and Dominic Fracassa - Saturday Aug 19, 2017
After more than two years of relative quiet, the “Monster in the Mission” — a contentious 330-unit development proposal next to the 16th Street BART Station — has resurfaced with a new campaign to win the hearts and minds of local residents. But, based on the reception Thursday night, the long respite did little to assuage their concerns. The developer, Maximus, held a shindig for Mission District business owners Thursday night at the Mission Language and Vocational School on 19th Street. The social was invitation-only, and four San Francisco police officers stood guard in case any interlopers should attempt to sneak in for free refreshments.
