The call came in as an unresponsive man in a vehicle with the engine
running. Ingleside Officers Shugars and Imsand were dispatched and
found the driver slouched over the steering wheel of a late model
Hyundai. The officers tapped on the window which alerted the driver
whose vehicle rolled backward several feet before stopping. The
officers asked the driver to step out and he complied. He told the
officers that he’s been working long hours and not getting enough
sleep. However, the officers noticed his speech was slurred and his
breath smelled of alcohol. He told the officers that he had a few
drinks that afternoon at a nearby tavern and had only eaten a half of
sandwich that day. The officers conducted a roadside sobriety test
which he failed. They received permission from the suspect for a
breath test which subsequently revealed a blood alcohol level of .120,
far above the legal limit of .09. He was transported to the County
Jail for booking and then to General Hospital for treatment of a
chronic infection. Because of his illness he was later cited and
released with a promise to appear in court. Report number: 150222362

City College Police Officer Flood was on patrol at CCSF’s Ocean campus
when he witnessed a male suspect, whom he believed to be smoking
marijuana in the parking lot by Conlan Hall. He then asked the suspect
to provide him with some identification; however the suspect hesitated
and stated that he likely had a warrant out for his arrest. The
suspect then turned away from Officer Flood and proceeded to flee on
foot. The suspect’s description was then radioed to other officers in
the area and a search was immediately conducted. Officers were then
advised that the suspect was spotted running across the pedestrian
bridge towards eastbound Geneva Ave. It was believed that the suspect
proceeded to enter the Balboa Park BART station and was attempting to
hide from officers within the BART system. At approximately 5:25pm, a
suspect matching the description was spotted at Glen Park Station by
an SFPD officer. In the interest of safety, the BART system was shut
down between Daily City and Glen Park stations. The suspect proceeded
to run through the BART tunnel towards Balboa Park, and was finally
taken into custody. Report Number: 150212965

Glen Park Farmers Market Opens March 29

Glen Park Village Farmers’ Market Returns for the Season

Drought Conditions Call for Greater Community Support

San Francisco (March 16, 2015) – The Glen Park Village Farmers’ Market will return on Sunday, March 29, 2015 with Northern California’s freshest fruits and vegetables, live music, and fun activities for all ages. The market, located at the Glen Park BART Station parking lot at Bosworth and Arlington, is open every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and runs through November 22. The entire Glen Park Village community is invited to join in opening day ceremonies with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. with Glen Park Merchants Association President Ric Lopez. Allen Moy, Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA)’s Executive Director, stated, “This farmers’ market is an integral part of our local food system. The California farmers who participate in the farmers’ market every week are selling fresh fruits and vegetables that they grow themselves. With the added pressures of the ongoing drought, these farmers are counting on the support of the Glen Park Village residents to help sustain their farms.”
More than two dozen California farmers and other local food producers are expected to be selling their products in the market on opening day. Jorge Vega, Peninsula Regional Market Manager, said, “We are looking forward to introducing new producers to the Glen Park Village community, as well as seeing our friends from last season. We have a lot of fun activities planned for kids and adults to enjoy while they shop the fresh, local produce provided by our farmers.” Throughout the year, patrons can enjoy an array of musical entertainment and seasonal events. PCFMA will also provide a stroller parking area, as well as a dog “barking” (parking) station.
The market, which is sponsored by the Glen Park Merchants Association, provides Glen Park Village residents a great, convenient way to support local California farmers, especially during the state’s trying drought. This year, the market will welcome several new producers, as well as favorite producers from past seasons. These local farms will offer a constantly changing variety of seasonal California produce, including earthy asparagus, flavorful mushrooms, juicy strawberries, and Asian greens. In addition, the market will feature locally-grown dahlias, locally-caught fresh seafood, and locally-made sauces, tamales, and empanadas.
Based in Concord, CA, the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association is a nonprofit organization that establishes and operates community-supported certified farmers’ markets and other direct marketing outlets throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. All PCFMA farmers’ markets accept WIC-FMNP (Woman, Infants, and Children Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) coupons and CalFresh EBT.
