From Sheriff Doug Pittman: "Has anyone seen a newer model red dodge charger seemingly parked or abandoned out here in West Marin. Car is believed to have new dealer paper license plates or even possibly an out of state license plate. Can't give specific details but I have a great interest in finding this car. Trust me, it doesn't belong out here... Thanks, Doug (your local Sheriff)"

Point Reyes Wild is an exhibition and sale of landscape paintings of Point Reyes National Seashore by the BayWood Artists.
The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act passed by Congress in 1964 and is a fundraiser for Point Reyes National Seashore Association's mission
It is the result of a year-long effort by these accomplished plein air artists to depict some of the park’s best-known landmarks and species, as well as special remote locations. The show opens with an artist reception and light refreshments at noon on Saturday, August 30 at the Red Barn Classroom and Art Galley at Point Reyes National Seashore. Admission is free.
Also as a part of this event, at the Yellow Commons house this weekend they are selling some of Carlos Porata's photographs.http://www.ptreyes.org/events/

I had no idea someone was missing. "No clues have surfaced in a months-long search for a prominent Inverness physician whose BMW was found in a parking lot in the Point Reyes National Seashore, officials said."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

Twitter thinks this image is 'sensitive'. After staring at it for a long time, I guess it could be seen that way. I mean, if you really want to go there. Geez. #algorithmsgonebadhttp://www.buzzfeed.com/expres

"A series five aftershocks, one registering a preliminary magnitude 3.9, rattled Napa in between 5:30 and 7 a.m. Tuesday." Heard that some folks in Inverness felt them, anyone else? I didn't.http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.c

The South Napa Earthquake was a reminder to make sure your preparedness plans are up to date. Here are some good resources to look into:http://www.sf72.org/http://www.marinsheriff.org/ab
If anyone has any others, feel free to post them. And remember to tune into KWMR when disaster strikes, that's why they're there.

TRAFFIC WATCH: I'm pretty sure the 'pipeline project' starts tomorrow morning around 8am on the Point Reyes/Petaluma Road just outside of Point Reyes. Not sure how long the delays will be, but plan your commute accordingly. Anyone else have better details?

Cal OES official says since the 6.0 Napa quake was so shallow its impact was more like 7.0-- was felt farther away.

The USGS said the probability of a strong and possibly damaging aftershock in the next seven days is 54 percent.
The last significant quake to shake Marin was a 5.0-magnitude temblor recorded in Bolinas on Aug. 17, 1999 along the San Andreas fault. It was the same segment that moved so powerfully in 1906.http://www.marinij.com/ci_2639

A word of caution to my fellow West Marinites...Today marks the first day of school out here in West Marin, that said, I given direction to my deputies to provide a strong presence around our schools in the coming weeks. If you want to avoid a potential $600+ ticket all you have to do is drive 25MPH through our school zones.
Just remember, by the time you see a deputy and his/her radar gun pointed at you, its too late. I strongly suggest that if you have a desire to donate $600 to the government, give it directly to the schools where it is needed most.
Be Wise, Be Safe!
Doug (your local Sheriff)
