Hope you’re enjoying lunch!

Joe was busy yesterday knocking another piece out. Nope, legal experts say, it is not okay for Brooke Jenkins to be sending emails with rap sheets.

Jane Fonda was in town to put climate change in the spotlight. Manny’s was packed.

Again, neighborhood notes for weekend planning purposes. And if you want to follow the money on elections, Will is keeping his look at donors up to date.

Also, if you want to add Mission Local to the homepage on your iPhone, open us in Safari, go to the share arrow, scroll down for the options and you will see: Add to Home Screen. It’s super simple.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
