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.

This event is sold out, but it will be live streamed at various local venues. "Marin Healthy Youth Partnerships (MHYP) will host a book reading and discussion with David Sheff and Nic Sheff, authors of the new book High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction. The discussion will be moderated by Michael Krasny, host of Forum, a news and public affairs program on NPR-member radio station, KQED-FM. David and Nic Sheff have authored several New York Times best selling books on the realities of drug and alcohol use, including Beautiful Boy and Tweak. The 2018 film, Beautiful Boy, starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet who was nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Nic, were adapted from both memoirs. Additionally Nic Sheff is the author of We All Fall Down and David Sheff authored Clean. The Sheff books will be on sale at the event, which is free, in support of National Substance Abuse Prevention Month.

This is an incredible chance for local parents and youth to understand the risks of experimenting with drugs and how stress, pressure and confusion can trigger adolescent substance use. David and Nic Sheff will share their experiences as father and son and discuss how addiction entered their lives. One in 10 kids will get addicted to substances over their lifetime and the earlier a child starts, the more likely they will have substance use issues later in life. This is also a unique opportunity to hear the realities of substance use specific to Marin County and create a dialogue about its impact on our community.

Marin County has significantly higher rates of alcohol, cannabis, and other drug use, both among youth and adults, when compared to the rest of California and across the county."

"The Marin Municipal Water District is asking all customers to conserve water and to have a stored supply for their families during PG&E's ongoing Public Safety Power Shutoff. The water district is asking all customers not to use water for irrigation or other outdoor uses, and to reduce their indoor water use.

Customers should store at least a three-day emergency supply of water of two gallons per person, per day. Remember to include extra water for those with special needs and for pets. PG&E estimated Wednesday that power shutoffs could last up to six days.

The Marin Municipal Water District has taken precautions to prepare for the PG&E power shutoff and has installed backup generators at water treatment plants to continue to provide water from its reservoirs.

The water district has also prepared a fleet of generators that are being placed at pump stations throughout Marin as needed to keep water tanks full and to ensure service is not impacted. Conserving water during emergencies such as power outages is critical to ease the demand on backup generators and ensure we have an adequate water supply for firefighting, drinking water and other essential needs."

Here is the current outage map for West Marin according to PG&E. Power is still on in Inverness Park but is out in parts of Marin like Marin City and Sausalito. Very few updates available beyond that at this time.

CRITICAL UPDATE: Power Outages in Marin - PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff

At 2:45pm today, Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) notified the County that it will conduct a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) tomorrow in response to high temperatures, Red Flag conditions and high winds. This planned power shutoff will occur in/near areas of Bolinas, Fairfax, Mill Valley, Muir Beach, Olema, Sausalito, and Stinson Beach by 4:00am Wednesday morning. The duration of the outage is unknown and will be determined by PG&E.

The decision to turn off the power and the speed at which it is restored is managed solely by PG&E. All questions regarding PSPS events and extended outages should be directed to PG&E via or and (866) 743-6589.

Please only call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing a medical or life-threatening emergency.

For other, non-emergency questions related to available services in areas experiencing an extended outage, please call 2-1-1.

Public safety is our No. 1 priority, and we will focus our efforts to ensure the safety and security of our residents "“ especially those with access and functional needs whose health could be impacted by the loss of power. Seniors and vulnerable populations who may be adversely affected by an extended outage can contact Marin Health and Human Service's resource line at (415) 457-INFO to access available resources. Fire agencies in Marin have increased staffing resources during the heightened threat. The Marin County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services is putting into motion its Electrical System De-energization Response Plan. Additionally, it has partially activated its Emergency Operations Center and is coordinating with nearby response partners in monitoring the power situation.

Emergency Management officials remind residents and visitors that it is important to have a plan to adjust daily routines to one without PG&E power. FEMA recommends the following steps:

"¢ Sign up to receive safety information on Nixle by texting your ZIP code to 888-777.
"¢ Sign up for AlertMarin notifications to receive information on immediate threats to personal safety or property, tailored to an address of your choosing.
"¢ Watch for wireless emergency alerts if evacuations are ordered, intended to reach all cell phones in the area.
"¢ Sign-up for PSPS Zip Code Alerts by texting ENROLL to 97633 or by calling 1-877-9000-PGE.
"¢ Update contact information with PG&E at or by calling 1-866-743-6589.

"¢ Identify several evacuation routes for your location in case roads are blocked. Tell someone out of the area which routes you plan to use.
"¢ Keep vehicles fueled and ready in case of an evacuation.
"¢ Make a list of what you'll want to take with you if you leave your home quickly. Consider the Five P's of Evacuation: People/Pets; Prescriptions; Papers; Personal Needs; Priceless Items.
"¢ Talk to a medical provider about a power outage plan for medical devices powered by electricity and refrigerated medicines. Take stock of batteries and other alternatives to meet your needs when the power goes out.
"¢ Take inventory of available supplies such as food, water, clothing, and flashlight batteries.
"¢ Have some cash available in case retail point-of-sale devices are unable to accept credit cards during an outage.
"¢ Check thermometers in refrigerators and freezers during an outage. Dispose of perishable food if the appliance temperature reaches 40 degrees or higher for an extended period.
"¢ Keep mobile phones and other electric equipment charged.
"¢ Know how to manually open electric garage doors and gates.
"¢ For more information, including what to do during a power outage, visit and

Lesson learned from past fire seasons, be sure to fill up your gas tank on your way home (or go fill it up now if you are home). Having a tank on or close to empty is very stressful if unforeseen events happen. Grab some extra water and non-perishable food supplies for yourself and the pets as well.

A very sad ending to this story of the missing person we posted a few weeks ago (Andy Nakashima was last seen at the gas station in Point Reyes). Our condolences go out to the family and friends. Via Alyssa Fritz: "Thank you to all who have been concerned and have helped in our efforts to find Andy and bring him home. We learned recently from local police officers that Andy has passed away. We don't know all the details of his passing, but he was found in his car in a beautiful remote spot along the Mendicino coast under some pine trees close to the Pacific ocean where the sound of waves could be heard.

During this difficult time, please be respectful to the family who are mourning this loss.

We are planning a celebration of Andy's life on November 2nd at Unity in Marin at 600 Palm Dr., Novato, CA, from 1:00-3:00 pm with a reception after. In the evening, those who want to continue the celebration, we are going to light a bonfire at Muir Beach at 5:30 pm.

Both old and new friends are welcome. No matter how long Andy was a part of your life, we would love for you to attend and share your memories of this extraordinary human being.

Please feel free to share and please RSVP so we can have an idea as to how many will be attending. Thank you."

The vote for Measure B, a renewal of the special parcel tax to support programs in the Bolinas-Stinson Union School District, was 361 yes and 136 no. A two-thirds majority was required for passage.

The vote for Measure C, a special parcel tax to pay for road work in Inverness, was 18 yes and 1 no. Measure C also needed two-thirds majority to pass.

Measure B aimed to renew and increase the school district parcel tax of $300 per year by $18 for five years. The current parcel tax expires on June 30.

The tax was billed as a way to "continue funding quality educational programs." The measure includes a senior citizen exemption option.

Measure C for Inverness Permanent Road Division No. 2 called for a special tax of $1,417 per improved parcel and $708 per unimproved parcel per year for 10 years."
