The WMF Facebook Feed
The West Marin Feed gained traction as a Facebook page and many of the local followers still find it there. Times have changed and Twitter has taken over as a better news medium, but WMF still posts on Facebook at least two or three times a week.

The best part about Facebook (if there is one) is that there is a lot of really good information that people are able to add to stories in the comments. Unfortunately, you have to go to the Facebook post itself to see these comments, they cannot be imported onto this feed.

Lots going on this weekend.

Local legends, El Radio Fantastique, play at Rancho Nicasio tonight at 7pm.

The Inverness Fair is happening on Saturday. Pancakes at 8am, booths, crafts and music go from 10am to 3pm. WMF may be there for a short window with some very limited edition stuff.

From the PRLight "“I know that beauty is subjective. It is true that bells are the largest instrument in the world.” Father Pizzuto was defending himself from complaints that the new bell at St. Columba’s Episcopal Church, which had been ringing a total of 177 times every day before going silent last week, ruptured the tranquility of Inverness.

This is such a bummer, Bill is a local resident and a standup guy. From his kids Maggie and William: "During a time of crisis, my dad Bill Majoue came to the city to help me and within 20 minutes, his truck and all of his tools were stolen. My dad is an electrician and these things were his livelihood. It would be incredible if the community that knows and loves him could help contribute so that he could continue to have what he needs to work and get around to his jobs to stay afloat. Thank you."

A truck was stolen in SF and was found in San Anselmo. When the police tried to apprehend the robbers in the truck, they fled towards West Marin. Apparently they drove with one tire on fire down Sir Francis Drake, through Olema to Point Reyes Station with CHP chasing them and a helicopter overhead. Then they circled around Point Reyes Station a couple of times, the tires in the truck were blown out and they ditched the truck by the gas station. The two suspects then jumped out of the truck and were arrested. Video by Marc Matheson.

On Tuesday, July 5, my good friend Adam Neale lost consciousness while surfing at South Beach in Point Reyes. Five local surfers who were surfing with him, Lewis Samuels, Patrick Kent, Shawn Collins, Enzo Buckenmeyer and Cameron Wickliffe pulled him out of the water and began performing CPR. Oceanne Carriere, who was on the beach, called 911 and the local dispatcher coached them until the first responders showed up. Adam regained consciousness and was airlifted to a hospital in Santa Rosa where he made a full recovery. Those six people and the dispatcher saved his life and are true heroes. Thank you.

If you haven't been CPR certified, now is a good time to go do it. You might save a life someday.

From the Point Reyes Light, “Without cell reception to call 911, his friends agreed, he likely wouldn’t have survived. Mr. Collins said on Drakes Bay, or at Kehoe Beach, where cell phones don’t get a signal, his friend might not have been so lucky. A planned AT&T cell tower near the Point Reyes Lighthouse will expand service on the outer reaches of the seashore, but not for customers of other cell companies. Park rangers are planning to install four new beach safety stations at North and South Beaches, each equipped with rescue sticks, tourniquets and flotation devices. The rescue equipment could help bystanders rescue swimmers and surfers in an area where it often takes many minutes for emergency responders to arrive.”

It has been quite a process over the last two months of finding the mooring for the raft (five attempts by snorkeling and finally retrieving it with a water proof metal detector I had up on my SUP while he wanded through the eel grass. Thackary Grossman also helped on snorkeling attempts. From the State Park: Robert Terry, Doug and Andrew as well as a lot of encouragement from our Director of State Parks, Armando Quintero!"

The WMF Roll Into the Week weekly newsletter is out to get you prepped for the upcoming week in West Marin. This issue covers:

- Record rainfall (2.33" on Mt. Tam) this weekend which helped with fire danger.
- Marin Board of Supervisors meet about climate change mitigation projects.
- PG&E getting a lot of feedback about their E.V.M (Enhanced Vegetation Management) strategy and how many trees are being cut down.
- It was a great Western Weekend Parade on Sunday.
- A story in the New York Times about NIMBYs in Marin. "NIMBYs who used to be viewed as, at best, defenders of their community, and at worst just practical, are now painted as housing hoarders whose efforts have increased racial segregation, deepened wealth inequality and are robbing the next generation of the American dream."

A question for local folks. My wife, Dakota Whitney, says that she is unable to make calls on her cel phone on the weekends (we are on Verizon) and she thinks that it's because there are more people out here on the weekends which overwhelms that cellular networks. Others have said they have this experience too. Is this a universal thing? Do folks have degraded cel phone service on the weekends in West Marin?

This 'rare' license plate was found recently on eBay and Hilary Cheda assessed its value for WMF: "The ones that are really rare say Cheda's Chevrolet on top and Pt Reyes Station on the bottom - sold up until the early 80's. We have one here at the garage that was off of our old blue El Camino. The one that was sent to you was sold until the 90's when my grandpa stopped selling Chevrolets and General Motors would no longer allow us to use the name Cheda's Chevrolet. At that point we changed the license plate frames to read Cheda's Garage." (Thx AF for the find)

Our housing strategy has to include both new housing and protection of the existing supply. We're proposing a halt on short-term rentals in West Marin to craft policies balancing visitor and workforce needs. On May 24, the Marin County Board of Supervisors will consider a temporary moratorium on new short-term rentals. The pause aims to stabilize housing supply & study long-term impacts.

The elk fawn was not injured. Do not remove animals from the park.

"On Friday evening, 4/29/22, a "concerned citizen" removed an elk fawn from the Tomales Point Elk Preserve fearing that it was gravely injured. The individual took the elk calf to the Marin Humane Society who then transferred it to WildCare. On Saturday, U.S. Park Rangers and biologists from the Point Reyes National Seashore were advised and responded to attempt to reunite the elk with its mother.

Fortunately, just before arriving at Tomales Point, precise GPS coordinates of where the calf was taken from were received. Park staff navigated to this point, through very dense fog, to find a lone female elk passing through the coyote brush and lupine. Staff quickly backed away from the area after the calf was released and the female elk went straight uphill to the calf. After reuniting for several minutes, with plenty of sniffing and licking each other, the two elk slowly trotted off together into the fog."

"For Bobbi Loeb, the decision to sign over the home where she raised two children to a land trust was both financial and ideological. In January, the 81-year-old finalized a deal to sell her Point Reyes home at a steep discount to the Community Land Trust of West Marin, better known as CLAM, which buys property off the high-priced private market and converts it into affordable homes. In Loeb’s case, it’s a deal that will allow her to live the rest of her life in the house with no monthly payment, then entrust CLAM to pay it forward to others in need of lower-cost housing."

From a local resident (WMF also had a coyote going through our raccoon distributed garbage in Inverness recently, which we don't see often):

"Stepped out my front door early this morning to find one of my cats squared-off against orange/orange, the colored ear-tagged young coyote that has been in and around Inverness the last few weeks. Chased him down the driveway and quite a ways up Mt Vision, showering him with all the unwelcome vibes I could muster.

I hope-but-doubt the unwelcome energy will really do much to keep him out of my yard and our neighborhood. A gentle reminder to other small pet owners to keep them (and their food bowls) close and/or inside and to be extra vigilant with keeping compost piles and garbage cans from becoming attractive nuisances. Wish the short-term rentals would do a better job in the garbage can department." (Thx TB)

via USCGNorCal: "The Unified Command coordinated the tow of the Wan Hai 176, a 564-foot container ship, to anchorage nine in the San Francisco Bay, Sunday evening.

Due to more favorable weather conditions, the Delta Deanna, a 112-foot tug, was able to pass tow lines to the Wan Hai 176’s crew at its anchored location approximately seven miles off the coast of Point Reyes.

Once the lines and anchors were secured, the tug began towing the Wan Hai 176 with the tugs Stacey Foss, Delta Billie, Delta Deanna and Rachel Allen escorting the ship to anchorage nine in the San Francisco Bay.

The Coast Guard Captain of the Port of San Francisco has ordered the ship to remain at the anchorage until the ship’s engines have been fixed and Coast Guard personnel have conducted an inspection of the ship."

That was a close one and I'm guessing people pulled off some heroic efforts to keep that boat from drifting into Point Reyes.
