Good Food and Drink in the New Year

You may have made some New Year's Resolutions about eating healthier in 2010, but on January 30, why don't you reward your efforts and eat for a cause? The Athletic Department at Jefferson High School is hosting their 7th Annual Crab/Spaghetti Feed & Silent Auction at the Pacelli Gym located at the Westlake Community Center in Daly City (next to Lake Merced). All proceeds from the dinner and auction will benefit sports programs at Jefferson High School. Baseball was cut this year, and wrestling had already been. So buy your tickets ($35 - adults, $10 - kids 8 and under) and support the Jefferson High School Athletic Department! Call the school at (650) 550-7775 to have your tickets put on "will call". A no-host bar and silent auction will take place between 6:00pm - 6:45pm with dinner to follow from 7:00pm - 8:30pm when the silent auction will close.

You may have noticed recently your tap water appearing cloudy or milky-white in color. This is due to there being tiny air bubbles in the water. Since the Hetch Hetchy System has been under construction (and will be until February 20, 2010), the City is receiving its water from the Sunol Valley Water Treatment Plant. When the water enters the transmission and distribution pipes, it becomes pressurized, and holds more air. The water depressurizes when it comes out of your tap, with the air coming out of the solution in the form of bubbles - much like a carbonated soft drink. If you can wait a couple minutes, let your glass of water sit on the counter and the air bubbles will leave, allowing you to enjoy a clear and refreshing glass of quality drinking water. Should you have any questions, please contact the City of Brisbane Public Works Office at 508-2130 or visit
