Where Not In San Leandro?

Your weekly photo quiz, this time not so local.

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!

So you think you are leaving us?? HA! How many times have I moved away, just to move back?! 5 times! Once you've been infected with SL-itst, you'll be back. You cannot resist the magic here. The green of the Castro Valley hills, the friendly faces, the potholes, the neighbors, the neighborhoods, the marina, the trails....I could go on, but why bother? You will not be able to stay away. We who have moved away and then moved back know what we are talking about...and soon, you will too! See you when you get back Jill. We will miss you and your emotional edge. You added to our little City. So you have to come back...and you will!

Thanks everyone! I'm off to San Diego to work for KPBS public radio on the Fronteras news project. Check out their webpage: http://www.fronterasdesk.org/. It's been great working in San Leandro and launching San Leandro Patch. There are some great candidates to take over my job, so stay tuned for more and increasingly better coverage of local news, happenings, business, etc. Hasta Luego!

Well Jill, I think you won the "community upgrade lottery" with San Diego as your new City!
