  1. Now I know why it was such a pain in the neck to get around the area that day; plus all the trash left behind. What a mess! Especially since it was earth day.

  2. This is all the coverage for the parade and festival? With a name like “Mission Local” you should have more coverage of important local cultural events like this and less random picture snapping around the Mission.

    1. Ana, thanks for your feedback. We would have loved to have more coverage of the Cesar Chavez Parade because we know it’s important for our readers. As you know, we’re a small community news site and on weekends, we often have one person doing everything–that means reporting and editing other reporters’ stories.

      But you’re right, we should do more and that’s where readers like you can help.

      We always welcome contributors’ photos and videos so please feel free to e-mail us at missionlocal@gmail.com.

      We also gladly welcome donations to fund our reporting (https://npo.networkforgood.org/Donate/Donate.aspx?npoSubscriptionId=1002970). Your donations go to pay for stories you’d like to read on our website.

      Thanks again for getting in touch with us! Helene

      1. I think the very local coverage of crime is great and should be expanded. Word getting out about certain crime waves in progress are beneficial to all. It can save your teeth on the Mission streets.
