Mission High School takes center stage on Mission Loc@l today.

Watch the student-produced video of Mission High’s chess champ William Sanchez. Or venture into another part of the high school in an exploration of the Mission Science Workshop, where 2nd graders tinker with bones and rocks in Garrett McAuliffe’s audio slideshow.

A sweeping victory for the oft-marginalized San Franciscan cat Tuesday!

The city’s Board of Supervisors voted on a resolution to ban feline onychectomy – the declawing of cats. Violators face a potential jail sentence of six months and fine of up to $1,000.

Strangely juxtaposed with kitties at the Supes’ meeting was a continuation of dialogue about the city’s policy on referring juveniles to ICE.

Also at the meeting, Supervisor Campos awarded the Mission Peace Collaborative for their work in helping families affected in the September shootings on 24th Street.

The collaborative will hold two processions Wednesday in a “Pledge of Peace,” convening at a 5:15 rally at 24th and Harrison streets.
