I heard a rumor that the DPW wants to tear down the wooden fence on the Pacific Coast Trail between Vallemar and Rockaway rather than repair it. Is there any way the fence can be saved? It is part of the charm of walking the Trail. Like many in Pacifica, I had the privilege of working with Elaine Larsen for years with an occasional review, stories for POPS (Preserve Our Pier Supporters) and poetry presentations. She was an accomplished journalist, never too busy to chat while I was in the Tribune office, returning every phone call and faithfully letting me know in time if a story was too late or too long. She loved the Pier and published many stories that helped the City receive grants for needed repairs, receiving many awards including POPS Achievement Award for Service to Pacifica and the Pier. She also loved poetry and helped spread her love of poetry by guiding readers to our local Poetry Forums and Poetry Festivals. Elaine’s legacy is lasting and City wide. And we think of her every Tribune Wednesday.
The story follows a fairly conventional arc, until it winds up with hubris, death and prison, The ending feels more dutiful than tragic, Even the film’s excursions into violence seem oddly noncommittal, though a centerpiece fight between Reggie and Ronald allows for a nifty bit of camera trickery, The Krays themselves helped cultivate the myths that sprouted around them, But as told by Helgeland, this story isn’t memorable enough to be dubbed “Legend.” And unfortunately, personalised pink ballet shoes/ballerina pe/school/swimming bag the tremendous acting effort by Hardy is undermined by the film’s unfocused storytelling..
In one song, a boy asks his father to take him back home, to beautiful Muhlenberg County, but dad has to say, sorry, son, Mr. Peabody took it away, as the projection screen shows the world’s largest mechanical shovel strip-mining the area. The music is presented by a brilliant bunch of musicians, from legendary old-time music expert Molly Andrews, who actually lives somewhere deep in the Appalachian mountains when not performing on stages around the nation, and the Bay Area’s Tony Marcus, who is excellent at any form of stringed instrument, from guitars to banjos to fiddles, all of which he plays in this show.

Chuck Barney’s TV and streaming picks for Feb. 3-9. DON’T MISS: Super Bowl LIII — Break out the hot wings. It’s the day when we shovel thousands of calories into our faces and hunker down to watch big, burly men pummel each other on plastic grass. This time, it’s the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots (Yes, them again!) waging gridiron war in Atlanta. Jim Nantz and Tony Romo call the action from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, while the rock group Maroon 5 tries to move like Jagger at halftime, and Madison Avenue spends a gazillion dollars on commercials.
