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.

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."

Plus upcoming events and weather.

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)

"Big news from Marin Community Development Agency:
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. Existing, registered rentals would not be impacted"

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.

In a surprise decision today, the Coastal Commission announced it had approved a local wind turbine project in Tomales Bay in Inverness just behind the Inverness Store. The wind turbines will be placed there in June supplying up to 4 million KWh per year. While some of this power will be put into the local energy grid, most of it will power a Bitcoin mining farm being set up in some of the unused space in the Inverness Store by the Bitcoin mining company, Riot Blockchain. (Bitcoin mining is an energy-intensive process with customized mining systems that compete to solve mathematical puzzles. The miner who solves the puzzle first is rewarded with bitcoin.)

In a statement by Riot Blockchain, they said "we are excited to start this new relationship with West Mare" and wanted to reach out to the local community by offering a discount on buying cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, $Cats, Nyancoin, Coinye and Dogecoin. Locals will also be allowed to purchase beverages from the Inverness Store's incredible beverage section using Bitcoin. WMF is very excited about this new project and will be releasing its own crytpocurrency called the BurtonCoin which can only be redeemed if Burton ever shaves his beard.

This is happening tonight starting at 8:45pm in Point Reyes Station. Meet at the Third & C Street entrance to the wetlands.

WMF did it last month and can't recommend it enough, it will change the way you look at the night sky.

STARGAZING WITH DON JOLLEY
Each month, in concert with the Point Reyes National Seashore, the Point Reyes Station Village Association (PointReyesStaion.org) presents a benefit to support its work* to preserve the coastal nightscape. Join astronomy teacher and storyteller extraordinaire Don Jolley under the stars at the Giacomini Wetland to learn the names of planets, stars, constellations and hear spellbinding stories about billions and billions of celestial bodies.

Because local skies are often foggy, we’ll notify participants on the evening of the first clear night before the New Moon each month, and meet at the Third & C Street entrance to the wetlands to walk out toward the barn. (We sit partway up the path to the barn.)

Location: Giacomini Wetlands, Third & C Street, PRS (actual site is on the trail to the barn)
Donation $10-$20. Please bring exact change as it will be dark.
Important: Please be sure we have your private email and phone number so we may contact you on the night of the event.

What to bring:
· Warm clothes
· Chair, blanket, or sleeping roll
· Print out of night sky map with names on it.
· Flashlight prepared as in instructions below or red lamp

(If you bring white flashlight, please turn it off before entering event. We are allowing time for all eyes to dilate.)
· Your curiosity

Flashlight preparation: A headlamp with a red bulb option will work just fine. Or, modify an ordinary flashlight to be red-filtered: Cover the flashlight's lens with masking tape, and color the tape with a red marker, like a Sharpie or red crayon. It may take a few layers of tape and marker to get the light to quiet down. You'll want enough light to read your star chart in the dark, but not so much that it blinds your vision of the stars.

For more information, contact Peggy Day (daynurse@gmail.com) or Laura Arndt.
