Am I the only one who actually likes single-use store plastic bags? I use them to line my small garbage cans and dispose of dirty kitty litter. Then they go in the garbage. I save every one I get, which isn't that many since I take reusable bags to grocery shop. I only ask for plastic when I am out, and I will miss them if and when they are banned.
I see the teachers have filed a grievance against the school board for trying to implement a seven-period day by shortening the existing six periods. When I was a student at RAL from 1962 -65, we had a seven-period day. Classes started at 8:20 and got out at 3:20. When and why did the day get shortened to six periods ending at 2:30? Lengthen the school day again. Problem solved. I know that will never happen, however.
Lastly, I want to give a big thumbs up to the 32nd and Ocean Beach Les Schwab store. They stayed to fix a completely flat tire when I rolled in shortly after closing Tuesday, Dec. 11 and for free. I can't say enough good things about the staff. Thanks again!
