The lead item in my Pacifica Tribune column of June 21 (click link above) calls on Caltrans to clean up the unsafe stretch of Highway 1 between Linda Mar and the Tom Lantos Tunnels at Devil's Slide. Trash, weeds, leaves, tree branches, rocks, and mud on the shoulders endanger motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Please join me in bringing pressure on Caltrans to do its job. A phone call or email to your city, county, and state elected representatives might help.

Shameless plug from our friend John Keener, Pacifica City Council: "Thanks for maintaining the best blog in Pacifica."
"I live on Talbot Avenue and had a prowler [see above] this past Saturday night. I would greatly appreciate if you can post this. She boldly came into our property and walked around our house with flashlight in hand looking in all windows and doors at 11:42 p.m. while we were all home. I have four children, and she spent several minutes leering into their bedroom windows, which has left me very disturbed. I actually feel sick over it. If anyone recognizes her, please contact the Pacifica Police ASAP. I have video as well." (Concerned citizen)
Dog bites man. Man sues county. Man wins a million bucks.
Pacifica City Council has notified Caltrans and SMCTA that it wants to pursue traffic remediation alternatives rather than widening Highway 1. Now the question is if the city can get the state and county to cough up the money for alternative solutions.
