I’m switching it up a little for this week’s photo quiz, my last as the editor of San Leandro Patch.
I’m moving on, or rather, down, to take a job with a public radio station in what could one day be the state of South California. The photos posted here are from that place.
I’m not offering a prize this week for the correct answer because too many readers already know it from Facebook chat and from the very efficient San Leandro grapevine. But I am offering my heartfelt thanks to the community for letting me delve into your local issues, your businesses, your politics and your lives.
You have a truly wonderful place to live and work, one in which people still say “hello” to strangers on the sidewalk, and where kids can play on the street and in the parks without fear. I have lived in some places (including, to some degree, where I live now in Oakland) where such things are a rarity.
I’ve also been extremely impressed and inspired by the dedication and sacrifice of so many people involved in local schools, charities, city government and city affairs.
You will be missed!
On a practical note, I don’t yet know who will be taking over as editor of San Leandro Patch, but we have some great candidates. Patch is dedicated to continuing to provide great local news coverage, along with debate and engaging conversation with your neighbors, and useful information about events, businesses and services in your city.
Monday is my last day on the job. I’ll give you the answer to this week’s photo quiz then.
Have a great weekend!
