Remember when the city started rolling out Healthy San Francisco and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association was all, "We don't want to help restaurant employees defray medical costs?" and the Bush administration was all, " Oh, good catch. We don't have a lot on our plate right now, so we'll try to eff shit up for uninsured San Franciscans?" Well, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the challenges today.

Background here and here, and a recent Sucka Free City about a woman who thinks they got the axe for trying to hold their employer to their responsibilities under Healthy SF. Go here to read the court's opinion.

    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.
