Welcome back to the De Anza

For the feature in the May 30 issue, I explored the adaptive reuse of a city-owned Route 66 motel in Upper Nob Hill. Read about why it’s a landmark, and how it’s being preserved here: The comeback of the De Anza Motor Lodge. Ty Bannerman supplemented the piece by writing about El Vado, another city-owned motel further down Route 66.

Request your absentee ballot today

If you’re planning to vote absentee, the county clerk recommends you request your application by tomorrow, May 31. You can print an application at bernco.gov/clerk. You'll need to mail or hand-deliver the application within 48 hours of signing and dating it.

Or call the county clerk at 243-VOTE (8683) and provide the following info:

• Your name, as stated on your voter registration card

• Your full address where you’re registered to vote

• Your date of birth or voter registration number

• The address you want your ballot mailed to (if it’s different than the address where you’re registered to vote)

The deadline to turn in the completed application is Friday, June 1, at 7 p.m. You can-hand deliver it to the Clerk’s Office (sixth floor of One Civic Plaza NW) on Election Day if you forget to mail it out.

Everybody knows it’s cooler in the mountains, so get out and explore them already. You don't need climbing gear or a Sherpa to scale tall peaks—just a thirst for adventure and, perhaps, a beer or two. Here are a few of my picks for an elevated summer.

You say it’s your Earth Day?

The Earth Day Network reports that 1 billion people marked the eco-holiday on April 22. But with consciousness-raising taking place on such a massive scale, it’s easy to overlook the everyday people who fight to keep our corner of the planet clean and healthy. For them, eco-activism is not a once-yearly event.

For the eco warriors profiled in this week’s feature, the work is hard, the hours long and unpaid. It’s about attending meetings, learning how to speak up in public, keeping track of paperwork, forging alliances with neighbors. It involves concerted, long-term effort in the face of what often looks like an uphill battle.

Drinking in Bernalillo

Does that idea depress you? If you’re at Silva’s Saloon—the nearly century-old Bernalillo bar that’s passed through three generations of one family—you could wind up as happy as a lubricated clam. This week’s feature sifts through layers of the beloved dive bar’s history, patrons and tchotchkes. Oh, and did we mention the place is for sale—lock, stock and barrel?

Countdown to the 2012 Mayan apocalypse

The Mayan calendar comes to an end on Dec. 21, 2012. According to some folks, that means we’ve got less than a year on planet Earth. Others say our planetary consciousness will shift, heralding a new age of existence. ... But what’s really going to happen? In this week’s feature, science investigator Ben Radford cuts through the hype about what the Mayan calendar tells us about 2012.
