San Francisco's panhandling and puppies program aims to tackle two issues plaguing the California city: homeless beggars, living hand-to-mouth, and the influx of 500 dogs brought to animal control in 2011. A new city program plans to put both to good use.
San Francisco plans to pair ex-panhandlers with puppies in a program called WOOF- Wonderful Opportunities for Occupants and Fidos. In exchange for homeless folks to give up panhandling, they will receive housing and a small stipend of around $50 to $75 a week. They would also take care of puppies while doing so, giving them valuable skills.
"Ultimately we want to see people live purposeful and full lives, and this is a step in the right direction," Bevan Dufty, director of Housing Opportunities, Partnerships, and Engagement, told the San Francisco Chronicle.
The plan to curb the city's aggressive panhandlers also requires potential participants to undergo a screening beforehand to prove they aren't deranged or hoarders. After that, they receive training in animal care and job skills, the puppy, dog food, leashes, access to a veterinarian, and their incentive in the form of a stipend.

"This comes out close to what they'd be bringing in panhandling," Rebecca Katz, San Francisco director of animal care and control, told The Atlantic.
The project became a possibility with a $10,000 private donation; from there, Katz and Dufty's brainstorm provided a way for the homeless to make social connections and gain job skills.

Well Alison,

I think that just about all of us that have enjoyed a warm/sunny day in Dolores Park can attest, there is plenty of drinking going on in the park. Will there be an end to it altogether? This seems extremely doubtful but you never know.

According to the article you posted there have been people bringing in kegs. I have never personally seen that but I'm sure it happens. I, for one, am completely okay with people drinking in the park if they handle themselves and don't become a nuisance to others. I do not condone under-age drinking or the reports of heroin use, etc but think that responsible drinking is okay.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Gabriel

Hi Alison,

I'd recommend Alta Plaza Park, which is just four or so blocks west of Lafayette Park (toward Fillmore Street).

Cheers,
Dino

Mallard beaks range in color from a dull green to a sunny yellow. Females tend to prefer males with bright yellow beaks. Scientists think that females prefer brighter beaks because it signals that the male mallard is fit and able to produce healthy offspring. Beaks are colored due to carotenoids - the same pigments that make vegetables brightly colored. More carotenoids leads to a brighter bird beak. When determining the exact cause of the green coloring, be careful who you get your information from. You see, there are a lot of quacks out there! ... more

Lee,

This is a good and funny question! Maybe the South end of the park will be more focused on those soccer moms and their children and the North side will be full of 'hipsters'. Either way, people will have to make room for both and find a way to get along.

There is no doubt that the new playground brings in more of a focus on families nearby and can only help the values in the area. I certainly couldn't imagine that something that nice would bring prices down but stranger things have happened in the world.

I think that it is at the top of the Palos Verdes Peninsula at Del Cerro Park just south of the intersection of Crenshaw Blvd. and Crest Road in Rancho Palos Verdes. Go up the hill to the right when you get to the park for incredible views of Catalina, the Terranea Resort and Abalone Cove. The lookout is just above the Vanderlip Mansion in Portuguese Bend. There is a great hiking trail in the Portuguese Bend nature preserve down from Del Cerro Park. See other Palos Verdes Peninsula hiking trails at my website page PV Sports, Recreation
And Parks referenced below.
