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.

Expect the planes to be back on Sunday. "Five C-17 Globemaster III transport jets took off Saturday morning from Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield to practice in-flight refueling and formation flying, said Technical Sgt. John Ayre, a spokesman at Travis. Crews from the South Carolina base where the C-17s are based were in the Bay Area to collaborate with California-based pilots and train together. It appears they did some training over the coastline and then took a non-standard route, Ayre said. From the sounds of it, they requested to do a little bit of a flyover over the Golden Gate," he said." (Thx SP) LINK:

The torrential downpours and flooding we've seen lately might be good for the parched, drought-stricken lands of California, but it's disastrous for endangered salmon. In the North Bay, creeks are muddy and swirling, raging torrents that destroy neatly-laid salmon eggs and provide no shelter for salmon coming in to spawn. "We have eggs that were just recently laid in Lagunitas Creek and other tributaries which have gotten washed away," said Eric Ettlinger, Aquatic Ecologist with the Marin Municipal Water District. "We also have fish prepared to go into the ocean which hatched a year ago, and they are struggling to find refuge from the high flows. LINK: "
