Household Enjoyable occasions full of schooling, leisure

You can always rely on nature to bring families together.

See for yourself when you stop by the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Family Fun in the Forest events. Come to the games and hands-on activities. Stick around for all the practical information and outdoor know-how you will take with you on the go!

The first Family Fun in the Forest event will land on Sunday, June 13th, 2-4pm (Pacific time) in the Lakeview Park Pavilion. The event, sponsored by Sandpoint Parks and Recreation and FSPW, is focused on learning more about the plants and animals in the community’s wild backyard. After all the fun and games, FSPW officials said, you will discover and identify the plants and animals that make Scotchman Peaks so great. Skulls, antlers, fur skins, and other learning tools will enable people to grapple with nature’s coolest facts, a press release said.

After the event, residents are invited to contribute some of this new knowledge when FSPW employee Kelsey Maxwell leads an ecology expedition to Goat Mountain on Wednesday June 16. The expedition is the perfect time to put this identification knowledge to the test. While the trail is steep the pace becomes slow and there are plenty of breaks to talk about the trees, plants, and animals on the mountain.

“Are we going to make it to the top?” FSPW officials said in the press release. “Probably not, but that’s fine because the journey is what counts. It all starts at 9 am at the Goat Mountain Trailhead.

There are more family fun hikes in summer. FSPW hosts a wildflower walk along Blacktail Creek, adventures in Ross Creek Cedars, blueberry hikes on Pillick Ridge, and more. And if you can’t do the Family Fun in the Forest event at Sandpoint this weekend, there is another on Sunday June 27th.

Each Family Fun hike includes a different level of difficulty and new educational topics. Regardless of the overall challenge, the hikes will be slow as the group examines the surroundings and smells the flowers – literally! visit www.scotchmanpeaks.org/hikes-events-schedule to find out all the details about each hike and event.

Are you looking for more ways to explore your wild garden this summer? Keep an eye out www.scotchmanpeaks.org for more great events!

Tulsa Race Bloodbath centennial occasions proceed amid hiccups | Leisure

TULSA, okla. (AP) – Joi McCondichie is from this town, but her life and career in public education kept her away from home for decades. When she returned to Tulsa with her then teenage son from Los Angeles, she moved to a house right on the Osage Prairie Trail in the north of the city.

On this trail, thousands of black Tulsans fled the white mob that leveled their community from May 31 to June 1, 1921 in the disaster known as the Tulsa Race Massacre.

“I think God brought me here because He had a job for me,” said McCondichie.

McCondochie planned a march this weekend to remember those who fled one of the worst and deadliest racial violence in American history.

This march is just one of many events that will culminate on Tuesday with a visit from President Joe Biden, who is expected to join local leaders on the occasion.

The weekend should include a keynote address by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and proxy Stacey Abrams, as well as a performance by singer John Legend at Tulsa’s ONEOK Field in the historic Greenwood neighborhood. However, the organizers canceled the event on Thursday, citing “unexpected circumstances with animators and speakers”.

Abrams and Legend representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

Law enforcement agencies in the US received a Department of Homeland Security bulletin this week warning them of the potential for targeted violence in commemoration of the Tulsa massacre, according to a federal law enforcement officer.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity about discussing a bulletin that was not publicly released and said authorities did not have credible information about a particular conspiracy aimed at the Tulsa events. However, the warning was given given the nature of the commemoration and the “volatile threat environment”.

McCondochie said her late grandmother, Eldoris McCondochie, was among the survivors who flocked from Greenwood, also known as Black Wall Street, in 1921, the bustling town in a city that was the image of black wealth and business success.

On Tuesday morning, Joi McCondichie’s “A Century Walk” will trace the escape of the residents of Greenwood. The hike begins on a 1.5 mile stretch of abandoned railroad tracks near Greenwood and Archer avenues. And then the hikers head north on the Osage Prairie Trail until they reach 56th Street between Peoria Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, where a community celebration awaits them.

“I thought this would be a nice way to remember ancestors by trying to walk a mile in their shoes,” said Joi McCondichie.

Other events include the last three known survivors of the massacre – 106-year-old Lessie Benningfield Randle, 107-year-old Viola Fletcher and 100-year-old Hughes Van Ellis. Last week, the three gave testimony to the US House of Representatives massacre on a panel.

“You will be going down Black Wall Street, historic Black Wall Street, in a horse-drawn cart,” said Tiffany Crutcher, organizer of the Black Wall Street Legacy Festival, which is separate from the city’s official commemorations.

“They will take us into a very powerful, powerful weekend to show respect and honor to the lives lost and the descendants and survivors who are still alive,” said Crutcher.

Other memorial programs include an art installation by the Greenwood Art Project and the dedication of a prayer wall at Vernon AME Church, one of the few Greenwood structures that survived the massacre.

Following the official massacre commemorations, the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission will open Greenwood Rising, a $ 30 million history center and museum, on Wednesday. The commission pays tribute to Black Wall Street’s heritage with exhibits depicting the Greenwood neighborhood before and after the massacre.

“When you get on at Greenwood Rising, we’re actually going to have railroad tracks you walk on,” reminding us that black and white Tulsa used to be divided by railroad tracks, said Senator Kevin Matthews, chairman of the Centennial Commission on Massacres. The history center is located in its legislative district on Greenwood and Archer Streets.

Republican Mayor GT Bynum, who is white, said the weekend’s events were crucial to a reconciliation process that was badly needed in the city.

“I think the biggest mistake that could come out of this centenary is when people look at it and think, ‘Well, that’s just something that happened a hundred years ago” and not think about how it was refers to America today, “Bynum said.

Associate press reporter Ben Fox in Washington contributed to this.

Outside leisure occasions return to Portland in a giant approach

PORTLAND, Ore – Now that the weather is warmer, outdoor events are making a big comeback in Portland.

There are several to choose from this weekend alone, including an outdoor projection and a performance experience at the Portland Art Museum.

“Everything is starting to spin a little when it comes to outdoor programming and virtual programming,” said Jaleesa Johnston, program director for the Portland Art Museum.

Although COVID restrictions are easing, people at the PAM event on Saturday night had to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.

Zidell Yards along the South Waterfront hosted an outdoor concert Saturday night. It was one of a series of events scheduled for the venue this summer.

“Oh my god, it’s so amazing, it’s amazing to come back out, and it’s almost like that big welcome party that everyone has on the same weekend,” said Michelle Shaffer as she settled in for the concert.

Multnomah County is now in the lower risk category in Oregon. That means more capacity for restaurants and retail stores. It also means more people will be encouraged to get off.

“I’m ready to see people and just get out in the sun and just be around other people,” said Megan Holmes.

This allow requirement threatens long-standing occasions on state roadways | Leisure

A long-overlooked government permit requirement is now being enforced by the State Department of Transportation and endangers long-term local events.

The state’s compensation obligation could be used to cancel the annual fireworks celebration of this year’s Backyard Broadcasting on Market Street Bridge. However, Mayor Derek Slaughter hopes a waiver submitted by the city will allow the event to continue.

It’s the first year the city has to file a waiver for the event, Slaughter said.

The state requirement was the reason for the cancellation of the 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle Ride in 2020.

According to Kim Smith, PennDOT’s security spokesman, this is not a new requirement from PennDOT.

“We understand that this requirement has not been consistently enforced on previous approvals, but during the COVID pandemic, those special event permits were subject to additional legal review,” said Smith. “Since we were made aware of this error, the department must comply with all applicable laws and regulations. The regulation does not give PennDOT the power to waive its obligation to pay compensation. “

The requirement stipulates that the communities directly affected by the event have to commit to responsibility for any accidents at the event and release PennDOT from responsibility. Williamsport, South Williamsport and Loyalsock Township (which owns the sections of the river under the bridge) must approve the compensation document.

Neither South Williamsport nor Loyalsock Township are willing to agree to PennDOT’s terms, nor should they add, according to Slaughter, that Williamsport is the only community responsible for the event.

Slaughter said the city filed a waiver offering full liability insurance for the fireworks. The city is still waiting for a response from PennDOT, he said.

Canceling the 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle Ride was not an easy solution.

The The ride in 2020 was stopped by a request from PennDOT In order to receive letters from each of the 15 parishes, the state must be exempted from all lawsuits filed by someone who can contract COVID-19 during the event, which attracts large crowds along the streets and during the ceremony.

Some municipalities declined to submit the compensation letter and PennDOT again declined, …

Neighborhood Notes: Vandalism at Cash Mart, unlocked tax credit, and lots of occasions— together with Carnaval

What’s going on in the neighborhood?

Vandalism at Money Mart on the 16th and Valencia

At around 7am on May 26th, a Money Mart employee discovered nine broken windows on May 16th and Valencia. While you might think a place called Money Mart was being looted, you would be wrong. Police officers said when they walked around the premises just before 8 a.m. that morning, they concluded that nothing was stolen and the suspect never bothered to enter the building. An incident report has been drawn up, but the investigation is ongoing. If anyone has information about what happened, the police recommend calling the 24-hour number at 1-415-575-4444 or sending a message labeled “SFPD” to TIP411.

Clara Sophia Daly contributed to this report.

After a robbery, the artist from Bernal Heights needs help improving home security

John Rampley, an 84-year-old painter who has lived in Bernal Heights for years, was robbed on May 18, 2021. Allegedly, a robber broke a window in the garage, snuck through an open bathroom window, and then discreetly grabbed Rampley’s wallet and cash and a painting from the wall – while Rampley slept. Rampley is “understandably very traumatized and worried about his finances as he lives off SSI,” said his daughter Genveive on a donation page about the incident. She created a GoFundMe page requesting $ 5,000 to help improve security upgrades in the house. So far, the site has raised about $ 2,806.

“I went to sleep around 10 p.m. and watched a show on Channel 9. I assumed they were trying to get out through the bathroom window, which was wide open when I woke up,” Rampley told Mission Local. “I have secured the door and install surveillance cameras. The fear is overflowing. “

In the past, Rampley said he had street pictures in the de Young Museum and Fort Mason. More recently he had his work at the Far Out Gallery on Taraval Street.

“John Rampley is a wonderful person and artist who lived forever in Bernal Heights,” wrote a neighbor Vanessa in an email to Mission Local. She hopes others will donate to his fund. If you are so willing to help them achieve their goal, donate Here.

Self-help for the elderly and Veritas are expanding the senior support program for Asian elders

At a time of increasing anti-Asian violence, many in San Francisco and the Bay Area are scared. Since then, anti-discrimination groups such as Stop AAPI Hass, which have some roots in the city, have emerged across the country.

The movement to end this damage has also paved the way for new action by famous nonprofits.

The two groups will announce the expansion of a senior care program on Friday May 28, where volunteers can choose to enter a retirement home if they feel unsure about going to the doctor or buying groceries on their own. Jeff Jerden, COO of Veritas, said the company has pledged $ 30,000 for these efforts, in large part to the company’s CEO, Yat-Pang Au, who identifies himself as Asian-American and contrasts Asians as “personal.” “looks at.

In addition, Veritas will display some of the Stop Asian Hate signs that ushered in advertising “Rent SF Now,” a subsidiary of the company. These new bright orange signs contain a QR code that links to the Stop AAPI Hate website, where users can report hate crimes or sign up for other measures to combat Asian violence.

Heads up: Hundreds of dollars could get in your way

According to a study by United Ways of California, a non-partisan government agency focused on health, education, and financial policies, around 7,100 low-income San Francisco residents missed the chance to get some moolah. Taxpayers have missed two programs that offer tax credits, the California Earned Income Tax Credit and the Golden State Stimulus. You can continue to claim this tax credit if you were employed last year and earned $ 30,000 or less annually and potentially up to $ 3,000 back. You can still receive the Golden Gate Stimulus if you have earned $ 75,000 or less and have an individual tax identification number (ITIN). This golden ticket gives you a one-time payment of $ 600 or $ 1,200.

Do you need rent relief? Apply for a rental of up to six months today

It has been a tough and stressful year for many in the mission and beyond. We asked, and you told us, rent is the biggest worry in your brain space. The mayor announced this week a total of $ 90 million to reduce some of that debt – up to six months’ rent, to be precise. Applications Open on Friday May 28th. If it’s inconvenient to apply virtually, you can contact one of the nonprofits that are working for help at 311.

Meanwhile, Supervisor Dean Preston has passed laws to prevent a local rental moratorium from expiring as the state moratorium ends on June 30th. If you pay 25 percent of your owed rent and can officially declare it to your landlord, you are safe from evictions without payment.

What to do this weekend

Untamed

The latest addition to “Indómitas”, a monthly live podcast featuring “fierce artists and activists”, will take place this evening at 6:00 pm. This edition was moderated by Chelis López from KPOO and Radio Bilingüe interview a poet and writer Lucha Corpi in Spanish. Turn on Facebook Live through this shortcut. The conversation can be heard free of charge, but donations are always welcome. To do this and to support the Brava Theater that supports this presentation or to support Indómitas, go Here.

carnival

It’s the little things, right? While not quite returning to its former glitz of costumed parades, Carnaval at least got its start back in May 2021 after postponing the pandemic last year. And maybe the streamlined agenda is best as the community is still suffering immensely from the economic impact of covid and prioritizing resources for rent and work.

And this year’s edition has a lot of fun and resources for the community. For example, the leaders of Carnaval and Mission Hiring Hall host a job fair, health and wellness pavilion, Covid-19 vaccinations, and cultural exhibits. If you visit all eight stands and hold them in a “Carnaval Pass” (marked with stickers instead of postage stamps), you qualify for a raffle in August.

And the prizes your friends will envy: Bad Bunny Concert tickets, San Francisco Giants Swag, and gift cards. When you’ve completed the rounds, stop by the booth on Calle 24 on the 19th and Harrison to enter your name before 4pm

Other local restaurants offer discounts for the celebration. Get 2 USD tacos from La Palma or a 10 USD breakfast burrito and a drink combination from the Sun Rise Restaurant. You can find more information on Instagram at Calle 24 Latino Cultural District.

Are you ready to participate? Come to Harrison Street May 18-20 through May 29-30. The spectacle is open on both days from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Pass the popcorn on

I never thought staring at a screen was a particularly meaningful social experience, but being locked out changed my mind. Last weekend, the Roxie Theater invited a personal audience for the first time since the pandemic began. In honor of the special occasion, the theater premiered a film “Paradiso” selected by the audience.

In addition, the Roxie Theater promises a number of summer specials like the SF Docs Fest (which is celebrating its 20th anniversary!). The opening night of the festival kicks off on June 3 with “Summer of Love”, a documentary about “an epic event that celebrated black history, culture and fashion”. Also have an after party at the Church of the 8 Wheels.

To see what else to see at the Roxie Theater, see the full lineup for the SF Doc Fest Here.

The Palacios sisters

To our artists in the Bay Area we say Brava. The Brava Theater is hosting a special screening of “The Palacios Sisters,” a radio novela written by playwright Cristina García, who currently works as a playwright in Berkeley. The story is inspired by Chekhov’s “The Three Sisters” and adds a modern and Latin American twist. This iteration of the story takes the main characters Olga, Maria and Irinita Palacios and their brother Andres straight to Miami in 1985 amid the cocaine crisis and growing AIDS epidemic. The family wants to steer their new lives as new immigrants from Havana and as visual artists in America.

In addition to García, the Radionovela was created thanks to the director Adrian Alea, the musicians Omar Sosa and Greg Landau, as well as numerous other speakers from the Bay Area. When you want to tune in, buy a ticket online from the Brava website. Ticket prices range from $ 10 to $ 12. Once you’ve claimed yours, you can listen to the piece as many times as you’d like between June 4th and June 30th at midnight.

Volunteers needed for Tucans weekend

The neighborhood remembers Sean Monterrosa, a resident of Bernal Heights shot dead by Vallejo police on the grounds of a suspected Walgreens looter on June 2, 2020. Last year, loved ones threw one Block party for him in his honor – with a concert of local musicians and decorations with toucans in honor of Sean’s beloved nickname – and declared it an annual celebration.

This year’s reminder is called “Tucan’s Weekend” and will take place on June 5th and 6th. According to a social media page, volunteers are needed to staff the event. If you’re interested, fill out the form at bit.ly/tucansvolunteers. If you want to check out and register for the events, go Here.

Colorado Springs chef opening small venue for personal occasions | Arts & Leisure

Brother Luck, owners of Four by Brother Luck and Lucky Dumpling, will launch a new concept in June: The Studio, 332 E. Colorado Ave. It is located above Lucky Dumpling at 26 S. Wahsatch Ave. and is accessible via a flight of stairs west of the Lucky Dumpling building.

“This was a former social marijuana place,” he said. “When it became available, we decided to make it a small place for wine evenings, cooking classes, and high-end dinners with celebrity guest chefs. And here we can conduct employee training courses and hold employee meetings. “

He gutted the interior, raised the ceiling to expose the joists, laid a new floor, and added a small kitchen space.

“We can seat 20,” he said. “Steve (Kander, sommelier at Four from Brother Luck) will also be storing his wines here.”
