Scientists from the Marin Mammal Center and California Academy of Sciences identified the whale as a sub-adult female. The scientists will return Saturday to perform a full necropsy, having taken preliminary skin tissue and blubber samples Friday morning." FULL STORY: http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/

"FAIR WARNING to all my West Marin communities, traffic complaints related to unsafe drivers, riders and cyclists skyrocket over the holiday weekends. With Memorial Day Weekend beginning tomorrow #marinsheriff deputies and #marinchp officers already ramping up directed enforcement efforts that will continue throughout the weekend from Muir Woods all the way north to Tomales. Our goal is to eliminate injury accidents but we can only do it with your help and patience for those seem to not care about the safety for themselves or others.

Let's all have a safe and fun weekend because I think we all deserve one!

Doug Pittman
aka: your local Sheriff"

The Point Reyes Disaster Council has a website that went live last week: https://www.pointreyesdisaster

"We hope everyone will use it for information, go-to resources and, for residents of the PRDC communities (full- and part-time in Point Reyes Station, Olema, Inverness Park and Marshall), the Household Information* form for your Neighborhood Liaison. These are for your safety, so please download and fill out as much as you possibly can. (*previously called Neighborhood Disaster Registry). We also always hope for more volunteers, especially as backup Neighborhood Liaisons, Area Coordinators, and on our PRS firehouse civilian radio room. ... Also, many thanks to Sequoia Web Design, based in PRS; and to Richard Blair and Dave Mitchell for use of their photos. Thank you, all..." - Lynn Axelrod
