Pacifican Maxine Hines put some heat on the California Employment Development Department (EDD) for its risky practice of mailing forms and checks showing clients' full Social Security numbers, fully vulnerable to identity theft. Maxine went to the news media, including Riptide, Pacifica.city, and KPIX-TV, and to the state legislature, and finally got some action out of Sacramento. EDD has agreed to stop printing Social Security numbers on its mailings. Nice going, Maxine!
According to comments on NextDoor, Luigi's Italian Restaurant at Adobe Square in Linda Mar has been burglarized and vandalized, but we have not yet confirmed this other than a verbal acknowledgment from a woman who answered the phone at Luigi's that there had been a break-in. Related comments on NextDoor and from our sources indicate that other break-ins have recently occurred at Spindrift Theater and Sanchez Library, where a safe was stolen. If you have information about any of these crimes, please call Pacifica Police. Stay tuned.
