Appreciations we'd like to have seen expressed before March 30, 2005

The San Francisco Chronicle would like to thank SF Weekly staff writer Nate Cavalieri for the guidance his story on labyrinths, "A Winding Path" (Dec. 1, 2004), provided in the preparation of the Chronicle's March 23, 2005, story on labyrinths, "Amazing Grace." Dr. Alex Champion, a scientist-cum-labyrinth designer, worked wonderfully as a lead character in both the weekly and daily versions of the story.

San Francisco magazine would like to thank former SF Weekly staff writer Bernice Yeung for the assistance her investigative package on wrongful conviction ("Innocence Arrested," Oct. 29, 2003) provided to the San Francisco investigative article "Innocence Lost" (November 2004). It's wonderful to know that, in 2004, "Innocence Arrested" was named a finalist for the Medill School of Journalism's John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Magazine Journalism, and, the very next year, "Innocence Lost" was named a finalist for the American Society of Magazine Editors' National Magazine Award for Public Interest.

Chronicle columnists Phil Matier and Andy Ross would like to thank SF Weekly writer Matt Palmquist for the help his lengthy feature story "San Mateo Confidential" (July 2, 2003) gave to the Jan. 16, 2005, Matier & Ross column headlined "Ironic twist in award to advocate for gays/Her lesbian mom had sued county over police report." It's wonderful to see the seamy details of a lesbian love triangle work in both long- and short-form journalism.

The San Francisco Bay Guardian would like to thank Ilgoid Disputin, chief of planetary intelligence for Inglingling, a Class 2 planetoid in the Vasectarian System of the Prolixian Galaxy, Quadrant 4, for assistance he rendered, via subspace telepathy, during the preparation of the March 23, 2005, article "Conspiracy Central/San Francisco is ground zero for 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Too bad they act like nuts -- because not everything they're saying is crazy." J.M.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
