Likes Hillcrest 111 (Re: “The next big thing in Hillcrest?” Vol. 9, Issue 3 or online at I live on Seventh Street and I support this Hillcrest 111 project. Yes, it’s not pretty, but that corner is a hangout spot for homeless people and this is far better than that. The shops in Hillcrest keep closing down and we have tons of empty storefronts.

 Bicyclists: Obey the law Re: Letters to the editor, Vol. 8, Issue 17 or at Regarding the “Irresponsible bicyclists” letter you received: I want to be pro-bike, because they’re obviously good for the environment and good for maintaining health. However, after much observation, I have to agree with letter writer Michael Garrison: I doubt I’ve ever seen even one bicyclist stop at a light or stop sign.
