Today. You have until the end of the day to register your kids for the city's Youth Flag Football League.
Sunday, Sept 9. 9 a.m-1 p.m. The weekly farmers' market will take place at The Shops at Tanforan. This is the time of the season when the hard-skinned winter squashes start showing up in the market. Also, the market saw a new vendor, A. Mark Lewis Orchards out of Stockton, selling numerous varieties of apples. The market is offering the Market Match incentive program that offers a $5 bonus when you purchase at least $10 in CalFresh/EBT tokens. If you receive CalFresh benefits (food stamps), bring your EBT card to the farmers' market every time you shop. See the market manager (Ashley) in the bright yellow shirt to purchase tokens to spend in the market and claim your bonus. The Market Match program continues until Nov. 18. This week find the secret word of the day on the market’s Facebook page and mention the word to the market manager for some great produce prizes, while supplies last. For more information, call the Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association at 925-825-9090.

Tuesday, Sept. 11. The San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control District will be performing its last of the season helicopter treatment over the tules in the Mills Field area between 6 a.m. and noon. Treated pellets will be dropped over the tules and then on a second helicopter pass, the downdraft from the bladed will force the pellets through the thick tules into the standing water below where breeding mosquito larva can eat the pellets. The pellets only work on mosquitoes. Unless there is a late season outbreak, there will be no further treatments. For more information, call 650-344-8592.

2. You can blog for the San Bruno Patch. You don’t have to be a great writer or a journalist to blog and there are no rules about how often you blog or what you write about. There are more than 18,000 Local Voices blogging on Patches across the country. This is a great opportunity for us to get the word out about what we are doing and what you are doing in and around our community. If you know others who might be interested, you should contact San Bruno Patch Editor Martin Ricard email@example.com or share this link: http://sanbruno.patch.com/blog/apply.
3. PG&E’s Line 101, a high-pressure gas line that runs parallel to the Seventh Avenue property lines, has been observed with a small section uncovered. I received a response from California Fish & Game saying they would help expedite PG&E’s permit requests. So far Fish & Game has not been notified by PG&E about this project or received any permit requests. My similar request to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife, which also needs to approve a permit, has not gotten a response.
