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 South Napa Earthquake was a reminder to make sure your preparedness plans are up to date. Here are some good resources to look into:

If anyone has any others, feel free to post them. And remember to tune into KWMR when disaster strikes, that's why they're there.

TRAFFIC WATCH: I'm pretty sure the 'pipeline project' starts tomorrow morning around 8am on the Point Reyes/Petaluma Road just outside of Point Reyes. Not sure how long the delays will be, but plan your commute accordingly. Anyone else have better details?

Cal OES official says since the 6.0 Napa quake was so shallow its impact was more like 7.0-- was felt farther away.
 Sunday, August 24 ,2014 at 8:02am
The USGS said the probability of a strong and possibly damaging aftershock in the next seven days is 54 percent.

The last significant quake to shake Marin was a 5.0-magnitude temblor recorded in Bolinas on Aug. 17, 1999 along the San Andreas fault. It was the same segment that moved so powerfully in 1906.

A word of caution to my fellow West Marinites...Today marks the first day of school out here in West Marin, that said, I given direction to my deputies to provide a strong presence around our schools in the coming weeks. If you want to avoid a potential $600+ ticket all you have to do is drive 25MPH through our school zones.

Just remember, by the time you see a deputy and his/her radar gun pointed at you, its too late. I strongly suggest that if you have a desire to donate $600 to the government, give it directly to the schools where it is needed most.

Be Wise, Be Safe!

Meteors are flying in the skies tonight and tomorrow night. The bad news is that the bright supermoon is interfering with this year's 2014 Perseid display, washing out all but the brighter Perseid meteors on the peak nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13 (we give the nod to the night of August 12-13). The good news is that, according to NASA, the Perseids have more fireballs "“ or bright meteors "“ than any other annual meteor shower.

Well. I was trying avoid DBOC talk this week but signs are getting spray painted, emotions are running high and there is quite a brouhaha breaking out over at the Point Reyes Light FB page. Apparently half the Point Reyes Ranchers Association resigned recently in response to the handling of a letter to Cicely Muldoon.
The resignation letter is posted there along with a full explanation (see the comments on the post). Would love to hear what else people know about this because it probably won't be published in either of the local papers (or at least it hasn't yet from what I can tell).
Here is the link:

"National parks in Marin County brought $496 million in spending to the area and helped employ 5,505 people in 2013, according to the study. In 2012 the figure was $469 million.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore and Muir Woods National Monument generated about one-third of the overall $1.5 billion visitors spent in association with national parks in California in 2013."

"On August 5, 1973, Park Ranger Kenneth Patrick was shot and killed while making a traffic stop at Point Reyes National Seashore, California. The vehicle that he stopped contained several members of a militant group, known as the Black Panthers. One of the men opened fire on Ranger Patrick with a 9 mm handgun as he approached the car, wounding him. Ranger Patrick was wearing a winter coat and was unable to draw his weapon.
