It's 'blast from the past' day. This 1969 West Marin School footage was found on YouTube today. Does anyone recognize any of these people? Why this is being paired with music from an indie Philly band? So many questions. (thanks WS!)https://www.youtube.com/watch?

"The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has confirmed that several turkey vultures have been poisoned from the veterinary euthanasia drug pentobarbital in Marin County. Pentobarbital-poisoned birds appear to be dead. They have no reflex response and breathing can barely be detected. The birds appear intact, without wounds or obvious trauma. Anyone finding a comatose vulture should call WildCare’s 24-hour Hotline at (415) 456-SAVE (7283) immediately."https://cdfgnews.wordpress.com

"Two suspected antler poachers in the Point Reyes National Seashore were detained Wednesday after rangers spent much of the day tracking their activities. The suspects were spotted loading antlers into a boat near Tomales Point and then hauling them across the bay to the Dillon Beach area. Federal park rangers and sheriff’s deputies intercepted the men."http://www.marinij.com/environ
I've heard about this happening, but first time I've read about an actual operation going down. Dang.

Just got back from an errand in Point Reyes Station. Long lines at our Highway One stop signs, at Bear Valley Road and here on Levee Road.
Wouldn't it be cool if the California Highway Patrol were posted at these intersections to direct traffic on holiday weekends like this one?

Lead story in the Point Reyes Light this week: "As the ranch’s manager, Rodney Martinelli, tells it, a cow with a festering bullet wound to the head leapt a corral fence and led him and two friends on an hours-long chase that ended with the cow’s death, and one man’s broken leg."

Thank you West Marin Feed for your help in getting information out to our West Marin communities! This service to your neighbors and those we serve is invaluable. Times are changing, people demand to have and know more information sooner than later and we at the Sheriff's Office are taking steps to meet those demands.
The West Marin Feed has been instrumental in helping us achieve this task for which, as the Spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office and the County during emergency of catastrophic events, I appreciate greatly!
This mornings example of you getting info out to our residents in Woodacre and San Geronimo Valley is exactly the kind of communication we need to continue to promote between the Sheriff's Office (and Govt) and those we serve.
Keep up the good work work!

A couple of people have mentioned this to me earlier, and today I just got the 'fake IRS' call on my mobile phone. A recorded voice that said I was under investigation and needed to call a certain number immediately. Even though it was obviously fake, it's still unnerving. Be careful, let people know, especially those who might not get it.http://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroo

A section of Highway 1 by Muir Beach that was washed out during December storms is set to reopen by noon Thursday, according to Caltrans. "It's ahead of schedule," said Steve Williams, a Caltrans spokesman. "The work basically went non-stop once it started. The weather really helped out."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

"Another time we were thinking of opening a restaurant in Inverness, a town fifteen miles or so away from Drake’s Bay north of San Francisco, where the waiters would be well-known poets of our acquaintance who’d work there for a week or two and then be replaced by other poets." - from a rememberance of the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mark Strand. Sounds good to me. (thx DP)http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/n

Sonoma Sheriff's Helicopter Unit, Henry 1, had a busy weekend: "A woman injured in a fall was rescued by helicopter Saturday from the lighthouse at the Point Reyes National Seashore." That's what all the sirens were about on Saturday. Nice to know we've got such good team watching our backs.http://www.pressdemocrat.com/n
