Tonight’s full moon is the smallest full moon of the year. We’ve heard it called the micro-moon or mini-moon.

The full story of the cliff rescue this weekend, everyone involved are true heroes. There are good people in this world. "Joel Deering, 27, and Cody LaMonte, 26, hiked to the beach below the cliff and swam 30 meters to a rock outcropping where the injured man lay. They used a first-aid kit to splint the man’s broken bones and bandage his lacerations. They used blankets to keep him comfortable and held his head stable for 2 1/2 hours until a rescue team arrived in a helicopter.

An incredible rescue yesterday at Arch Rock in Point Reyes after a man fell 60 feet off a cliff and two others scrambled down to help him.

"CHP Officer James Andrews said a 24-year-old Gilroy man was hiking with a church group from Gilroy near Arch Rock when either the ground gave way or he slipped, falling some 60 to 80 feet to the rocks below.

The man hit the rocks and ricocheted into the surf, but Andrews said he was able to pull himself out of the water and onto a rock outcropping.

Two good Samaritans ran down a narrow goat trail to the beach and then swam to the rock to assist him, Andrews said. The surf was coming in quickly, stranding the three people on the rock, Andrews said."

Secret Spot of the Day: This beautiful bridge built by Nick Whitney. I hid something beneath this bridge today. The first person to correctly tell me what it is gets a special t-shirt I just designed, the next three get a hand screened print. DO NOT put your answer in the comments here (that will spoil it for others), go to this page and let me know: http://thewestmarinfeed.com/an

Good luck!!!

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!)

"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."

"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."

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!

Doug Pittman,
CMDR - Sheriff's Patrol Divison

A suspect is at large in the hills of Woodacre on Thursday morning after a chase in which a speeding car crashed into a creek and erupted in flames.

A woman who also fled the vehicle following the incident at 6:26 a.m. was held for questioning.

Authorities said a California Highway Patrol officer tried to stop a car for a speeding violation, triggering a chase that ended when the fleeing vehicle crashed into San Geronomio Creek near Redwood and Carson avenues. The car burst into flames.
