Chris: "Weren't you at Point Reyes the other day?"
Howard: "I was"
Chris: "We live right up the street, why didn't you call?!"

From Marin County Sheriff: "Recently, we received a report of wildlife that was found dead of mysterious causes. The wildlife was located in different areas of open space throughout the county. Based on past experiences, we've found the cause is often illegal marijuana growers that use toxic chemicals that impact our environment. The Marin County Sheriff's Marijuana Eradication Team (MET) responded with an eradication mission along with our partners: State Park Rangers, National Park Rangers, and Fish & Wildlife. Together, we were successful in locating two different growing sites that contained fertilizers, pesticides, irrigation tubing, growing marijuana, and garbage. We confiscated the plants along with the harmful chemicals to limit additional environmental damage and wildlife deaths. We appreciate our partners and the positive difference we make together."

Highway One South of Stinson Beach apparently will not be open for another year. Here is the latest from Chief Kenny Stevens:
"The latest construction project has started. Red Rock beach parking lot is closed. The Spring water tap is off limits. No Bicycle, hiking allowed on roadway. This project is larger than what has been happening already . The bad news is they say the highway will not open until after summer of 2018. I have contacted Supervisor Rodoni and have also talked to Chief Anita about the upcoming winter and the effects this is going to have on our commuters should Panoramic have to close. I and Anita will be trying our best to get the word out for any delays. We will also be trying trying to get some signage for when there is a closure. Maybe get a sign board in Tam Valley to warn people , before they get up the mountain. Hopefully a mild winter happens and they can get it done sooner. Kenny" (thx GFS)

An important alert that was posted on WM Share: "Sexual Predator Alert White House Pool - Female swimmer followed and watched intensely for 30 minutes and then approached and spoken to by a menacing man as she exited the water on Tuesday, September 12th from 9:10 a.m. to 9:40 a.m.

The same female swimmer was again followed and watched and spoken to by the same man at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, September 16th. He was partially obscured in the bushes close to the eastern end of the public trail that runs along the creek.This time the man thrust his pelvis into view and began unbuckling his belt buckle.

In both cases, the man's actions were threatening. He is a well-dressed white man, likely in his 40s. On Tuesday, he wore a white billed cap (not a baseball hat), a white tucked in nice T shirt, dark pants (jeans?) and a dark, lightweight jacket. He wore reflective sunglasses, perhaps aviator-style. He has a deep voice. On Saturday, he wore the same white cap. The bushes obscured the rest of him, but his voice was recognizable. His belt appeared to be a medium brown leather, with a simple brass colored buckle.

This man should be considered dangerous. Please call the Sheriff if you see him in the vicinity of White House Pool or other isolated areas. He may park on Sir Francis Drake and enter and exit the path east of the parking area."

Your clothes can actually reverse climate change! We know-- what?! Well, West Marin's very own Fibershed crusades tirelessly to help farms transform from polluters into entities that positively impact the climate-- yes, that is possible, and Fibershed knows how! Those farms then create textiles to make clothes in a way that helps, instead of hurts, our planet. Fibershed has an upcoming gala and fashion show on September 23 in Bolinas (with goodie bags and delicious local food)-- you can buy tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/f

"The 998-acre Evans-Giacomini ranch just outside Point Reyes Station is closer to agricultural preservation now that the Board of Supervisors pitched in for the purchase this week.

The supervisors Tuesday voted unanimously to authorize the use of about $1.6 million in Measure A sales tax funds to help pay for a $3.28 million Marin Agricultural Land Trust easement on the property. MALT will contribute the remaining $1.6 million. An agricultural conservation easement is a recorded restriction on title that prohibits subdivision and limits the use of the land to agricultural purposes."

"A search for a possible missing plane is under way south of the Point Reyes National Seashore, a spokesman said. A signal was transmitted from an emergency locator transmitter to the U.S. Coast Guard around 1 p.m. Thursday, according John Dell'Osso, Chief of Interpretation and Resource Education at Point Reyes National Seashore.

The Coast Guard searched two miles offshore but nothing was found, Dell'Osso said. A signal from another transmitter was received from the south end of the Point Reyes National Seashore in the Bolinas area, and 20 to 30 people searched on land until 3 a.m. Friday, Dell'Osso said. The land search resumed around 8 a.m. Friday, Dell'Osso said." (thx LP) FULL STORY: http://m.sfgate.com/news/bayar
