Legislation giving Marin County the first crack at acquiring surplus Coast Guard quarters in Point Reyes for affordable housing was introduced Wednesday by San Rafael Rep. Jared Huffman.
Under Huffman's "Point Reyes Coast Guard Housing Conveyance Act," the 22-acre Coast Guard complex, up for sale at a federal auction next year, would instead be sold to the county at fair market value as determined by an appraiser "based on the use required by this act."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

Flashback: On July 22, 2008 I happen to be coming down Balboa Ave. when they were moving the Orthodox Church, piece by piece, from the site where the 'Pandora' compound is being debated.

Apparently this isn't the first time the 'Pandora' architect, Tom Kundig, has had some controversy with his work:
"Descriptions of the cabin by opponents in interviews for this story, on a Facebook page and in local media have included “an extended third finger,” a “boil,” a “blight” and a “wart” to a Mazama area that has no “ridgebuster” dwellings atop hills."http://seattletimes.com/html/l
For those of you not familiar with the story, it's really starting to get some media traction, here is coverage on Valleywag and SFGate:http://www.sfgate.com/news/arthttp://valleywag.gawker.com/

Ok, so don't take photos off the Internet. The amazing photo of the Great Blue Heron was shot by local photographer Daniel Dietrich. You can see (and buy) all of his amazing work here. I apologize for the confusion. (thx CP)http://www.danieldietrichphoto

The Battle for Balboa: "Tim Westergren, the multi-millionaire founder of Pandora, the country's top Internet radio service, has his heart set on building a new home that many believe would be the largest private residence in rural West Marin County. This has not been music to his new neighbors' ears."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

"Deputies in the Sonoma County Sheriff’s helicopter rescued a 55-year-old woman Friday from the Point Reyes National Seashore after she fell off a horse, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. The accident occurred in an area with limited vehicle and emergency resource access. The Henry 1 crew found the 55-year-old woman with a National Park Ranger, who was assisting her, on a trail surrounded by a dense canopy of trees, deputies said."http://sfbay.ca/2014/11/07/hel

Anyone recognize this guy? This photo was captured by a hidden camera of a suspect wanted in connection with stealing a bus for elderly and handicapped persons in Bolinas late this past Thursday night. If he wasn't responsible I'd sure love to hear his side of the story....

The Dungeness sport crab fishing season started today. Be sure to be nice to your crab fishing friends! The commercial season starts on November 15. Sadly, I would bet that the capsized vessel in Bodega was out crabbing.

One of the benefits of commuting in West Marin in the Fall is that the sunrises over the Nicasio Reservoir are stunning. #sunrise #goldenhour

A true sign of the times...deputies patrolling in Bolinas late last night discovered that Giant spirit is alive and well as some Halloween goblins are off to an early start showing their loyalty by making a few minor adjustments to the CalTrans electronic warning signs in town.
Don't think we'll start much if an investigation into this big capper

Nice article on Jack Kornfield, local spiritual legend, in the NY Times magazine this weekend. "Whether or not the latest wave of self-helping meditators or corporate practitioners of ‘mindfulness’ know it, the spiritual enlightenment sweeping America has strong ties to Buddhism, thanks in part to one huggable ex-monk in California."http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes

Lots of people reporting that the CHP are very active in Inverness and IP today reminding people to drive safely. They were all over Lucas Valley yesterday too. (thx mm, dw, iw)
