A word of caution to my fellow West Marinites...Today marks the first day of school out here in West Marin, that said, I given direction to my deputies to provide a strong presence around our schools in the coming weeks. If you want to avoid a potential $600+ ticket all you have to do is drive 25MPH through our school zones.
Just remember, by the time you see a deputy and his/her radar gun pointed at you, its too late. I strongly suggest that if you have a desire to donate $600 to the government, give it directly to the schools where it is needed most.
Be Wise, Be Safe!

I think they should have used 'Nicasio' as the example, not 'Point Reyes'. (cc Matt Gallagher). And RIP Robin Williams. Ugh.http://blog.sfgate.com/stew/20

Meteors are flying in the skies tonight and tomorrow night. The bad news is that the bright supermoon is interfering with this year’s 2014 Perseid display, washing out all but the brighter Perseid meteors on the peak nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13 (we give the nod to the night of August 12-13). The good news is that, according to NASA, the Perseids have more fireballs – or bright meteors – than any other annual meteor shower. http://earthsky.org/tonight/pe

A letter released today shows that twelve ranchers resigned on July 25th from the Point Reyes Ranchers Association. If anyone has any further details on the story, please let me know. Here is the letter.

Well. I was trying avoid DBOC talk this week but signs are getting spray painted, emotions are running high and there is quite a brouhaha breaking out over at the Point Reyes Light FB page. Apparently half the Point Reyes Ranchers Association resigned recently in response to the handling of a letter to Cicely Muldoon.
The resignation letter is posted there along with a full explanation (see the comments on the post). Would love to hear what else people know about this because it probably won't be published in either of the local papers (or at least it hasn't yet from what I can tell).

"National parks in Marin County brought $496 million in spending to the area and helped employ 5,505 people in 2013, according to the study. In 2012 the figure was $469 million.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore and Muir Woods National Monument generated about one-third of the overall $1.5 billion visitors spent in association with national parks in California in 2013."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

"On August 5, 1973, Park Ranger Kenneth Patrick was shot and killed while making a traffic stop at Point Reyes National Seashore, California. The vehicle that he stopped contained several members of a militant group, known as the Black Panthers. One of the men opened fire on Ranger Patrick with a 9 mm handgun as he approached the car, wounding him. Ranger Patrick was wearing a winter coat and was unable to draw his weapon.

On the sports front, former Inverness resident (and former Boston Red Sox) Jonny Gomes was trading to the Oakland A's this morning. He must be stoked to be back in the Bay Area. Oh yeah, and Cespedes was traded too.
