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.

Some great stuff happening today and tomorrow.

The Blunk Space in Point Reyes Station has an exhibition of hand made knives made by Everett Noel inspired by JB Blunk. Both the blades and the handles are handcrafted and are functional pieces of art.

Anyone else seeing lots of yellowjackets? WMF has a big nest under our eaves. And we spotted this nest on Shell Beach in Inverness. Beautiful but keep your distance.

About two weeks ago a really nice couple traveling through Inverness Park had their cat, “Tails”, run off into the bushes and was lost. They put up signs everywhere and locals rallied to help them. And today they found her!

Information is limited but it sounds like there was a possible shooting near the golf course in San Geronimo and the authorities are still looking for the suspect. There is a shelter in place in effect around the golf course and if you see any suspicious activity, call the police. I have heard reports SFD is closed in that area as well, so plan accordingly. Be safe everyone.

The person injured in the recent motorcycle accident in Inverness Park was local resident Noe Rodriguez. If you don't know Noe, he is one of the sweetest, kindest guys around. He is currently in the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with serious injuries and mounting medical bills. Please give what you can to support him and his family and share this with others. Thank you.

Two emergencies yesterday in West Marin.

In the afternoon two kayakers were in distress in Tomales Bay which led to a full emergency response with helicopters. I heard that Shannon and Anthony from the Marshall Store assisted in the rescue. Everyone was ok.

Later there was a bad motorcycle accident in Inverness Park that required a helicopter transport. Our heart goes out to the person injured in that accident, I hope they are ok.

If you want current updates on these type of events, those are on the WMF Twitter feed (not FB). And if you don't want to be on Twitter (I see you John Aucoin), you can go to the WMF web site and see the Twitter feed there without going to Twitter.

There have been many rumors over the years about the Old Western Saloon in Point Reyes Station being for sale. A sharp eyed WMF supporter spotted this listing today on Craig's List. Maybe this time it is for real?

 Monday, May 15 ,2023 at 6:04pm
After fielding many questions about the mysterious white objects on the east side of Tomales Bay, WMF went to investigate. Turns out they are giant marshmallows. It’s a marshmallow farm. They’re extra big this year because of the rains. Now you know.

A car crash was reported early this morning on Rt1 south of Marshall but the driver was not found. A missing persons report came out for the 22 year old driver later in the day. Then he was found deep in the brush about 400 yards from the road. A helicopter assist was called in and pulled him out. Sounds like he is ok.

Usually WMF leaves the plane spotting posts on Twitter, but this is an interesting one. Anyone else see this Lockheed U-2 flying overhead just now? Looks like its doing some sort of sweep of the Bay Area.

Beach quiz of the week. Anyone know what this is? Found at the beaches in Point Reyes yesterday. (Thx SC)

From the Marin County Sheriff: "Please be advised that Shoreline Highway is closed from Sir Francis Drake to Olema/Bolinas Road, due to a traffic incident involving utility lines. The road is expected to reopen at noon, updates to be provided as needed. Please avoid the area and find alternate routes if you must travel."
 Sunday, March 26 ,2023 at 7:09pm
It’s not clear what’s happening on Bear Valley Rd. Signs say road closed, but the road at Rt1 in Olema is open with one lane where the huge fallen tree took out a chunk of pavement. The big issue is that this is one of the only two access roads. If this road fails and SFD between Inverness Park and PRS floods, that cuts us off.
 Sunday, March 26 ,2023 at 12:54pm
Bear Valley Rd is closed at the intersection at Rt 1 in Olema. If you’re trying to get to Rt 1 from Inverness Park, take SFD to Rt 1. (Thx DW)
 Saturday, March 25 ,2023 at 11:49am
One of the biggest trees that WMF has seen just fell down in Olema this morning. The noise must have been so loud. Anyone know the details?

Bolinas residents just lost their local post office and have to drive 40 minutes to Olema to get their mail.

Help support them and its return by signing this petition. Then pass on to a friend and have them sign it too.

There is a lot of hype around the incoming storm that starts tomorrow. Forecast models and forecasters are kind of all over the place. Not sure how much rain we'll see in West Marin, but it looks like we'll definitely see some. And more importantly, we're going to see a lot of wind. Wind knocks down trees which knocks out powerlines which knocks out power.

It may not be that big a deal, but be prepared in case it does turn into something nasty. Put gas in your car. Get ice in a cooler to save your food if you don't have a generator or battery. Grab some candles and batteries. Watch out for downed tree limbs and wires. Check in on neighbors who might need help.

The bigger story might be that there is a lot more rain after this storm and it will be wet and rivers running high for awhile.

Stay safe everyone.

The letter above is from local KWMR DJ and longtime Bolinas resident Ananda Brady and was delivered to Dennis Rodoni today. Service at the Bolinas post office was suspended today and residents will have to pick their mail up in Olema.

This message is from Bolinas resident Jeff Labovitz on NextDoor: "I have been corresponding with local government authorities about the eviction of the USPS since early December. They always respond "we are looking into it". The failure of government to protect the the entire community of Bolinas from the abuse of one greedy, and disgraceful property owner has no excuse despite all the babbling about "lawsuits" , USPS issues, etc.

It can only be summed up as the total lack of concern on the part of County, State and Federal offices with respect to that "go-it-alone" hippy community called BOLINAS.. How else can one explain the total lack of action against the calculated plot by Welch to extort Bolinas in the face of a groundless federal post office eviction and a lingering massive risky public health and safety hulk called the Waterhouse Building??

"We'll get back to you on that..someday"....
Signed, Rodoni, Huffman, Newsome.."
