So the story I was told was that PG&E replaced the pole and electric wires on SFD in Inverness, and this is how AT&T handles the phone lines. They tie a rope to the piece of old pole. Is this true?

Trevor Traina is the owner of the much discussed 'Moonrise Kingdom' compound Inverness. "San Francisco native Trevor Traina’s nomination to be U.S. ambassador to Austria was approved by a Senate committee Tuesday. The Foreign Relations Committee’s unanimous voice vote all but guarantees that the tech entrepreneur will win full Senate confirmation. Traina, a registered Republican, was nominated by President Trump in January to be ambassador to Austria. It’s the same post his grandfather, Wiley Buchanan, held under President Dwight Eisenhower. The job has been vacant since Trump took office." FULL STORY: https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea

"A person who was collecting mussels over the weekend at Dillon Beach has been hospitalized for shellfish poisoning, according to the Marin County Public Health Department. The victim — who county officials wouldn’t identify — consumed mussels harvested Sunday in Dillon Beach and was hospitalized after suffering from neurological symptoms. Public Health Officer Dr. Matthew Willis said the county’s public health staff was notified of the illness Tuesday. “The person is getting better,” Willis said. “Fortunately, the clinician was aware of the elevated (poison) levels in locally sport-harvested shellfish and made a timely diagnosis.” FULL STORY: http://www.marinij.com/health/

Our deepest condolences to his family, friends and department. "A Marin County Sheriff’s deputy responding to a call near Point Reyes Station died early Thursday when he lost control of his patrol car and careened into a tree, authorities said. A sheriff’s department spokesman said the officer was responding to a call shortly after midnight of a crash on Highway 1 just north of Point Reyes Station. As he neared the accident scene, his vehicle went out of control as he entered a left curve in the roadway. Emergency personnel from the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, CHP, and Marin County Fire responded to the scene and closed Highway 1. Fire crews worked to extract the deputy from the vehicle and an air ambulance transport the injured officer to a local trauma center." FULL STORY: http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.c

"At approximately 5:10 pm firefighters from Inverness FIRE Department and Marin County Fire Department responded to assist a male who was having a reported cardiac emergency. While enroute to the patients location, an air ambulance was requested to respond. Unfortunately, the closest one was 55 minutes away. Due to the extended ETA of the air ambulance , a quick thinking Battalion Chief immediately requested a CHP helicopter to respond. H-30 responded with a 25 minute ETA to the landing zone. When firefighters arrived on scene with the patient, they determined that immediate advance life saving measures were needed to save his life. Due to the quick action of the Marin County Paramedics on scene, they saved his life. The patient was driven with lights and sirens to the waiting CHP Helicopter H-30 where he was in turn transported by a CHP Officer/Pilot and a CHP Officer/Paramedic to the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. The male patient is currently being treated at the hospital. This patient is alive due to public service agencies working together." FULL POST: https://www.facebook.com/CHPGo
