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.

From a local salmon fishing report yesterday: "We saw a great white kill and eat a small porpoise off McClures." Wow. I thought they didn't come back until September. (artist rendition of the shark)

This isn't a very fun article to read, but if you were hoping (like I was) that El Nino was going to rescue us from the drought, I would update your expectations.

From the police reports this week. Wild baby pig? Lost baby pig? Dangerous baby pig? Reminds me of rabbit sketch from Monty Python's The Holy Grail:
Sir Robin: What's he do? Nibble your bum?
Tim: He's got huge, sharp... er... He can leap about. Look at the bones!
King Arthur: Go on, Bors. Chop his head off!
Sir Bors: Right! Silly little bleeder. One rabbit stew comin' right up!

"Allies of Drakes Bay Oyster Co. announced Friday they had secured an agreement with the National Park Service to give the embattled Marin County oyster farm 30 days’ notice before ordering it to shut down operations in the Point Reyes National Seashore.
The agreement “ensures the status quo,” enabling oysterman Kevin Lunny’s company to continue harvesting oysters until a competitor, Tomales Bay Oyster Co., can get its case before a federal judge, possibly in September, said Stuart Gross, a San Francisco attorney representing Tomales Bay."

"The number of great white sharks that prowl the waters off Tomales Point, Stinson Beach, Duxbury Reef and Bolinas for marine mammals is larger than previously thought, according to a new study." Good news in that 'just don't eat me please' kind of way.
