"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."
Author James Nestor will be on KWMR this morning from 10am - 11am. He will be talking about his latest book, "Deep" which explores the world of free diving. Much of it was written while he holed up in a cabin in Inverness. And don't forgot, it's also the KWMR pledge drive happening right now! Support your local community radio, we're very fortunate to have such an incredible resource available to all of us.
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.

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."
From Doug Pittman: "A reminder to all my fellow West Marinites...today between 1-6pm at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes Station, Marin County Health & Human Services will be providing FREE influenze vaccinations for the upcoming 2014 flu season. I know I will be one to get my flu shot today and I hope others come by to receive theirs..please note that just because I will be there doesn't mean everyone can line up to poke the Sheriff."
Brickmaiden Bread, a local company run by Celine Underwood, just launched an amazing Kickstarter campaign to upgrade their oven. The 'rewards' for supporting the cause are incredible. They're also having a party today from 4pm - 8pm at their bakery in downtown Point Reyes (by the Commons) to celebrate. Food, drink and oysters! Be sure to check out the campaign and the party!!!!
