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 Inverness boat is cool, but is it one of the world's most amazing abandoned sights? I'm not so sure. Seems like there should be more news then that today.

"It's Madeline Hope's modeling of an engaged, caring, go-getter resident of West Marin"”who has put "a lot of heart and soul" into countless projects over the 19 years that she's lived in the area"”that led to her winning the Pacific Sun's 2014 Community Spirit award."

Don't call it a comeback! "5 day rain forecast shows more than 1" possible in the North Bay. Next chance of rain after Thanksgiving."

"Smiley's Schooner Saloon in Bolinas, the oldest business in Marin County, has a new owner, Leila Monroe, a 35-year-old San Francisco lawyer, the first woman in its colorful, 163-year history. That's the news in this happily isolated coastal hamlet, ending months of rumor and speculation, but it isn't the story. The story is that in a town famously mistrustful of outsiders, no one is calling her a carpetbagger. Quite the opposite, in fact."

Here is some incredible video shot last night by Aaron Ely of the Point Reyes Youth Hostel fire: "A special thanks to Jim Fox who stood guard in our tinder box of a leech field and called up some reinforcements to help with the embers. He had to race out the door while cooking his dinner at home."
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 11:38pm
A shot of the brush fire in Point Reyes by the youth hostel this evening. The winds were heavy and the local firefighters and NPS did an incredible job putting it out quickly. That could have been ugly.
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 11:38pm
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 9:57pm
Via Fiona O'Kelly: "It's a brush fire caused by a downed power line on the left hillside between the Youth Hostel and the Clem Miller Center. Julia and I went down there and talked to the responders on scene, who were waiting for PG&E to arrive to shut off power so that they could begin fighting it. They weren't too worried, and no structures (meaning Clem Miller Center, Laguna lot houses, or youth hostel) were immediately threatened. As Julia and I were leaving about 5 minutes ago, PG&E arrived on scene, which means that soon they can begin putting it out. I will say that my heart rate has been up around 130 bpm for the past hour or so. DAMN scary."
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 9:42pm
Someone just reported a lot of sirens headed out to Limantour Beach, maybe a brush fire, anyone have details?
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 8:28pm
Marin county and Inverness fire units along with park rangers are responding to a vegetation fire near the youth hostel. The hostel is not threatened at the moment but has been evacuated. Fire personnel are awaiting the arrival of PG&E to cut power to downed power lines before they can knock down the fire, which is about 1/4 - 3/4 acre with a slow rate of spread.
 Monday, November 17 ,2014 at 8:14pm
Fire engines, ambulances, and rangers have been screaming down Limantour for the past 15-20 minutes. Does anybody know what's going on?

Legislation giving Marin County the first crack at acquiring surplus Coast Guard quarters in Point Reyes for affordable housing was introduced Wednesday by San Rafael Rep. Jared Huffman.

Under Huffman's "Point Reyes Coast Guard Housing Conveyance Act," the 22-acre Coast Guard complex, up for sale at a federal auction next year, would instead be sold to the county at fair market value as determined by an appraiser "based on the use required by this act."

Flashback: On July 22, 2008 I happen to be coming down Balboa Ave. when they were moving the Orthodox Church, piece by piece, from the site where the 'Pandora' compound is being debated.
 Tuesday, November 11 ,2014 at 10:12pm
Apparently this isn't the first time the 'Pandora' architect, Tom Kundig, has had some controversy with his work:

"Descriptions of the cabin by opponents in interviews for this story, on a Facebook page and in local media have included "an extended third finger," a "boil," a "blight" and a "wart" to a Mazama area that has no "ridgebuster" dwellings atop hills."

For those of you not familiar with the story, it's really starting to get some media traction, here is coverage on Valleywag and SFGate:

"Deputies in the Sonoma County Sheriff's helicopter rescued a 55-year-old woman Friday from the Point Reyes National Seashore after she fell off a horse, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. The accident occurred in an area with limited vehicle and emergency resource access. The Henry 1 crew found the 55-year-old woman with a National Park Ranger, who was assisting her, on a trail surrounded by a dense canopy of trees, deputies said."

I heard there was quite a reaction to the Tim Setnicka talk about the ranches at Santa Rosa Island and how the ending of their lease could mean troubled waters ahead for Point Reyes. If you would like to hear the talk yourself, along with a variety of comments from the public which, as Katie Eberle said, reflect the variety of thinking around our community, the show is archived on KWMR's website, here: Thank you to KWMR for collaborating with those of us who volunteer at the Community Media Center of Marin.

Author James Nestor will be on KWMR this morning from 10am - 11am. He will be talking about his latest book, "Deep" which explores the world of free diving. Much of it was written while he holed up in a cabin in Inverness. And don't forgot, it's also the KWMR pledge drive happening right now! Support your local community radio, we're very fortunate to have such an incredible resource available to all of us.
