*ESC and Jeanne Corpus-Lutz have offered to help a few youngsters to sign up for Karate:

 Great way to help your kids learn self respect, respect for others, discipline, and physical activity and for $29 special. If this is something that you think would help your child but don’t have the cash – email EverythingSouthCity@gmail.com & let’s find a way to make it happen. It takes a village to raise our kids.  Lamas Kenpo Karate 474 San Mateo Ave in San Bruno 583-3030

Says Jeanne Corpus-Lutz I would be happy to sponsor a child for 29.00 on behalf of South City Fog 2012. And it’s from my personal account not from team just in case people are wondering.

*More encouraging words from Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County, “We believe that if youth have supportive, healthy relationships and a place where they feel they “belong”…they are more likely to have healthy families & social relationships as adults.”

*Congratulations to Baseball Without Borders National Team on your win and a big thanks to Coach Juan & Ivania Bustos for once again putting together this opportunity for our youth to visit other countries

*Does Friday the 13th have any special meaning to you? Here are some cool facts from Tim Hoppis::Some Friday the 13th facts, taken from the Earth Sky site…
“Did you know that exactly 13 weeks ago was a Friday, April 13? And that exactly 13 weeks before that was a Friday, January 13? Yes, 2012 has three Friday the 13ths. How often does the January-April-July Friday the 13th trilogy repeat? Not often. It happens only three to four times every century, and will happen next in 2040”.

 *Lisa McKay shares:
Did you see the picture / news post from ABC7 News about the Dolphin? I am not sure exactly where this is but since it is SSF I wanted to share it here.

We had over 40 people comment on this fascinating visitor to our Colma Creek.
