City cement trucks did not plough into Waldeck's

The Sentinel yesterday inaccurately reported City cement trucks
had ploughed into Waldeck's Office Supplies.
No City cement trucks were involved in the break-in and minor
Police telephoned owner Clifford Waldeck Tuesday morning to report
a San Francisco Water Department cement street cover was used
to gain entry.
This writer regrets the error.

Waldeck's has won numerous awards as a San
Francisco Green Business.
"As I've been updating my business automation
the last few days in anticipation of improved Waldeck's opportunities,
I woke up early this morning feeling especially good about the
future of Waldeck's,
Waldeck told the Sentinel.
"I must have jinxed myself.
"At 6:30 a.m., got a call from SFPD. Waldeck's
had been broken in to, the front door smashed by a San Francisco
Water Department cement cover and a bunch of fine pens, some rolled
coins and other merchandise stolen.
"This is very discouraging but I will keep
my positive attitude... I won't let the bastards get me down!
"Alas, the joys of retail business ownership,"
