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.

It's 'blast from the past' day. This 1969 West Marin School footage was found on YouTube today. Does anyone recognize any of these people? Why this is being paired with music from an indie Philly band? So many questions. (thanks WS!)

"The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has confirmed that several turkey vultures have been poisoned from the veterinary euthanasia drug pentobarbital in Marin County. Pentobarbital-poisoned birds appear to be dead. They have no reflex response and breathing can barely be detected. The birds appear intact, without wounds or obvious trauma. Anyone finding a comatose vulture should call WildCare's 24-hour Hotline at (415) 456-SAVE (7283) immediately."

"Two suspected antler poachers in the Point Reyes National Seashore were detained Wednesday after rangers spent much of the day tracking their activities. The suspects were spotted loading antlers into a boat near Tomales Point and then hauling them across the bay to the Dillon Beach area. Federal park rangers and sheriff's deputies intercepted the men."

I've heard about this happening, but first time I've read about an actual operation going down. Dang.

Just got back from an errand in Point Reyes Station. Long lines at our Highway One stop signs, at Bear Valley Road and here on Levee Road.

Wouldn't it be cool if the California Highway Patrol were posted at these intersections to direct traffic on holiday weekends like this one?

Lead story in the Point Reyes Light this week: "As the ranch's manager, Rodney Martinelli, tells it, a cow with a festering bullet wound to the head leapt a corral fence and led him and two friends on an hours-long chase that ended with the cow's death, and one man's broken leg."

Thank you West Marin Feed for your help in getting information out to our West Marin communities! This service to your neighbors and those we serve is invaluable. Times are changing, people demand to have and know more information sooner than later and we at the Sheriff's Office are taking steps to meet those demands.

The West Marin Feed has been instrumental in helping us achieve this task for which, as the Spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office and the County during emergency of catastrophic events, I appreciate greatly!

This mornings example of you getting info out to our residents in Woodacre and San Geronimo Valley is exactly the kind of communication we need to continue to promote between the Sheriff's Office (and Govt) and those we serve.

Keep up the good work work!

Doug Pittman,

8:15am BREAKING NEWS : Man on the run from sheriffs department wearing an orange traffic vest, jeans and missing a shoe. Call 911 if you see him. Sheriff just told me this at bottom of Redwood Canyon. CHP aircraft now on-scene aiding in search effort in Woodacre. @SanRafaelPolice K9 also assisting. One female suspect caught after CHP car chase and crash, male suspect fled on foot.

http://www.marinij.com/general...

A suspect is at large in the hills of Woodacre on Thursday morning after a chase in which a speeding car crashed into a creek and erupted in flames.

A woman who also fled the vehicle following the incident at 6:26 a.m. was held for questioning.

Authorities said a California Highway Patrol officer tried to stop a car for a speeding violation, triggering a chase that ended when the fleeing vehicle crashed into San Geronomio Creek near Redwood and Carson avenues. The car burst into flames.

Just watched Sonoma County "Henry" helicopter and a long line rescue person pull a kayaker and kayak from "The Shark Pit" off the mouth of Tomales Bay near Lawson's Landing about an hour ago. Coast Guard, Marin County jet ski, Bodega Bay FD ambulance all there, too. Who goes out in a kayak with a storm blowing in? Thanks to all the responders and alert people who reported the wayward adventurer.

A couple of people have mentioned this to me earlier, and today I just got the 'fake IRS' call on my mobile phone. A recorded voice that said I was under investigation and needed to call a certain number immediately. Even though it was obviously fake, it's still unnerving. Be careful, let people know, especially those who might not get it.

Looking for small cottage or home in Petaluma or Pt Reyes, Inverness from 22 April thru 3rd June-
One week minimum; I live in the BEST part of BELIZE............
Placencia, across the road from a beautiful beach & we have a swimming pool, as well as all the amenities of "home," with air con, wifi, cable tv, & our preferred transportation, beach cruiser bikes!
Originally from Pt Reyes area, my grand children live in Petaluma; I want to spend this time period with them, and return to my "home away from home" for the evenings.

Our swap does not have to be simultaneously, as I have a few accommodations in Placencia & can be flexible.
If this is something you would be interested in discussing, please contact me & tell me more.

YES! "After quiet weather with warm temperatures through Wednesday, we are keeping an eye on a substantial change in the weather slated for Thursday through Sunday. Confidence remains high that rain will return to our area later this week as a moist flow off the Pacific will bring rainfall back to our area." - NWS Bay Area

"Another time we were thinking of opening a restaurant in Inverness, a town fifteen miles or so away from Drake's Bay north of San Francisco, where the waiters would be well-known poets of our acquaintance who'd work there for a week or two and then be replaced by other poets." - from a rememberance of the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mark Strand. Sounds good to me. (thx DP)

Does anyone know or has figured out who takes down the posters put up by hard working musicians and non-profits - from the post offices? They just get ripped down before the event has happened. It's annoying. It's actually more than annoying.

Sonoma Sheriff's Helicopter Unit, Henry 1, had a busy weekend: "A woman injured in a fall was rescued by helicopter Saturday from the lighthouse at the Point Reyes National Seashore." That's what all the sirens were about on Saturday. Nice to know we've got such good team watching our backs.

Question: Why do people bag up the dog poop but then leave it on the trail? Is there a reason? Who's supposed to pick it up? This is not the first time I've seen this happen, so I'm curious.
