Think Blue Marin: "We’ve had an exciting couple of weeks on Lagunitas Creek with lots of both rain and fish. In that time we’ve received over eight inches of rain and Lagunitas Creek flows increased from 20 cubic feet per second to a peak of 1,800 cfs. During a break in the rain on Monday we observed 63 coho, 28 Chinook, and one chum salmon."http://www.marinwater.org/Blog

The Inverness boat is cool, but is it one of the world's most amazing abandoned sights? I'm not so sure. Seems like there should be more news then that today.http://www.sfgate.com/news/sli

"It’s Madeline Hope’s modeling of an engaged, caring, go-getter resident of West Marin—who has put “a lot of heart and soul” into countless projects over the 19 years that she’s lived in the area—that led to her winning the Pacific Sun’s 2014 Community Spirit award."http://www.pacificsun.com/hero

"Smiley's Schooner Saloon in Bolinas, the oldest business in Marin County, has a new owner, Leila Monroe, a 35-year-old San Francisco lawyer, the first woman in its colorful, 163-year history. That's the news in this happily isolated coastal hamlet, ending months of rumor and speculation, but it isn't the story. The story is that in a town famously mistrustful of outsiders, no one is calling her a carpetbagger. Quite the opposite, in fact."http://www.marinij.com/marinne
