Help stop chain stores from moving to the Mission!
Support Local Business / Oppose Jack Spade
Background: http://bit.ly/jackspadesf
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14 5:00 PM BOARD OF APPEALS CITY HALL, ROOM 416

In brief:
• Jack Spade is a designer mens store which is part of the “Spade” family of brands (Kate Spade LLC.). There are 94 US Spade stores, but only 10 Jacks.
• The City of San Francisco supports small business with Planning Code section 703.3, which ensures that certain neighborhoods have a voice before a chain store, defined as a business with more than 11 locations, can open.
• Kate Spade LLC is attempting to circumvent formula retail regulations in the Valencia Corridor by opening up a Jack Spade at 3166 16th Street (formerly Adobe Books).
• By misrepresenting its corporate structure, Jack Spade/Kate Spade convinced the City to NOT consider it formula retail.
• If Jack Spade is allowed to sidestep the rules, other chain stores will likely follow, gaming the system to effectively ignore the concerns of the community.
• The Valencia Corridor Merchants Association wants to appeal the City’s non formula retail ruling for Jack Spade. By speaking out, and sharing what you love about the Mission, you can help make sure the appeal moves forward.

Hey all, have you seen Kyle's brilliant info-packed narrative on the Jack Spade fight. Great prep for the hearing and for explaining to friends and neighbors why this issue is important and why we need to stop Jack Spade!

Petition Presentation Event: Tue Aug 20 7:30 pm
Fluoride Free Water from Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD)! 
Marin Municipal Water District Building 220 Nellen Ave Corte Madera, CA
With over 2,000 signatures (and counting!) the group of us working on this petition have chosen to present the complete, signed petition to MMWD at their next regularly scheduled board meeting on Tuesday - August 20, 2013
We encourage YOU and anyone you may know to be there.
If you know someone who would like to add their voice to the petition, there's still time at:
http://www.SafeWaterMarin.org
This is also the time to contact your favorite media people and invite them to come! If you need additional resource material, or would like to learn more about drinking water fluoridation, please watch some of the compelling videos presented on the SafeWaterMarin.org site and visit the Fluoride Action Network site: http://www.fluoridealert.org.
We plan to see the news media well represented at the event. This is an excellent time to do all you can to energize the conversation around discontinuing water fluoridation in Marin (and surrounding districts). Letters to newspaper editors, radio and television media are ALL encouraged.
Together we can achieve fluoride free drinking water in Marin County, California!

GOLD Burning Man   http://burningman.com/
The good, the bad, the ugly, the amazing, the mind blowing, the life changing and the everything in between. 
Grade: A+   Burning Man is arguably the most amazing party on the planet
Music: C-  “wamp-wamp, wamp-wamp.”  It’s ironic that such a creative festival lacks musical diversity. 
Location: C+  Dust storms, high desert sun without shade.  The dry lake bed desert has its own beauty.
Organization: A Even with some ticket issues, they provide a good infrastructure for Nevada’s 5th largest city for a week.
Pros: It’s Burning Man!!
Cons:  The expensive ticket price is the just the tip of the iceberg for many, dust storms, heat, the collective chaos of 50,000+ people!
When: the week up through Labor Day weekend        Where: Black Rock Desert, NV

Burning Man Infographic
http://xmasons.com/prints/burning-man-infographic
The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.
The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
I was recently interviewed by Jordan Salinger from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association about this inforgraphic:
“For some it is a yearly spiritual revival providing an emotionally charged respite from reality; for others it simply means they are able to eat brunch without standing in line. The mark left by Burning Man on San Franciscans and this city is undoubtedly immense, but is hard to truly measure. The same can be said about the impact on Black Rock City, Burning Man’s yearly home, but this stunning infographic provides an all-encompassing perspective on the event.” by: Burning Man

Plan your arrival so that you show up at the Gate after the 6pm opening. We cannot allow people who show up early to wait in town (see #1 above). When the Gate opens, we give priority to those who are coming off the highway....those who showed up on time. This means that if you show up early and we have to stage you somewhere, you will get in later than if you showed up on time.

Beware of NARCS / undercover cops asking you for drugs

LIBERTY LOUNGE: ACLU AT FALSE IDOL & 5:20 (NEAR KIDSVILLE)
Do you want to learn more about your civil rights — both in Black Rock City and the default world? Stop by the Liberty Lounge from 2 PM to 6 PM daily where the ACLU of Nevada will be available to answer your questions. 
Know Your Rights: The ACLU publishes a guide on What To Do If You're Stopped by Police on the ACLU website at:
http://www.aclu.org/files/assets/bustcard_eng_20100630.pdf
Know Your Rights Videos: Flex Your Rights offers DVDs on how to behave if stopped by law enforcement on their website at:http://www.flexyourrights.org/ ... and free on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/user/FlexYourRights
Please note, however, that the ACLU guide and the Flex Your Rights video are geared more for a law enforcement stop that could lead to an arrest; whereas most stops in Black Rock City are more about warnings and citations. Use common sense when deciding how to comport yourself.
LAWYERS FOR BURNERS
If you were arrested or cited at Burning Man and are interested in better understanding your legal options, then Lawyers For Burners is a resource available to you. LFB is run by volunteers in the Burning Man community to help you better understand how to navigate your options.
