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.

OYSTER UPDATE: I have know idea what any of this means. "It looks like the last oyster may finally be shucked at the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. by the end of December, judging by what both sides in the long legal fight over the future of the farm said in federal court Monday. Then again, maybe not."

A lot of the sirens over the weekend were due to rescue crews going out to check on Will Schmidt who is SUPing from Canada to Mexico to support Wounded Warriors battling depression. Everything ended up being ok. Amazing journey for Will.

Tigger is still missing since June 24th! If you live around the school or know anyone that does please call or knock on doors and search for him, especially around Manana Way and Viento. There are people that live here that do not participate in community and may not know Tigger's story. Outbuildings and sheds or garages need to be checked to make sure he has not been locked in anywhere. The Humane Society and Veterinary clinic have had no word of him. Please help find our West Marin Elementary School cat.
Call West Main School at 663-1014 (Linda is on vigil checking messages), Point Reyes Animal Hospital at 663-1533, or Planned Feralhood at 663-8497. If you find him please contain him so we can come and get him.

People were asking about all the sirens. I think every west Marin residence should have this bookmarked since general news stations don't cover West Marin. When something is going down this is the link to find out what it is and where it is in Marin County!

"July Fourth festivities in Inverness take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the annual footraces and food for purchase in front of the firehouse." And by annual footraces, I mean the 'once-a-year opportunity to have your pride crushed' in front of everyone.

A temporary beach closure on the Great Beach between North Beach and Abbots Lagoon is in place from Friday July 4 through July 6th to protect nesting snowy plovers during this critical phase. In 2013, of 11 newly hatched chicks, only three survived past the 4th of July weekend. It is hoped the temporary closure will protect this threatened species. (via Loretta Farley)

Tigger Update: Still Missing.... such a social guy - could he be in someone's house or did someone pick him up because they saw his ears and thought he needed help?
 Tuesday, July 1 ,2014 at 1:57pm
Someone picked up a basket of tennis balls from in front of our family house in Inverness last night between 6:30 and 9:30. They were sitting in front of the gate at 98 Camino del Mar in Seahaven. Maybe this person thought the basket and balls were abandoned there? If so, would you please return them? My brother, Xerxes Whitney, a tennis coach and sixth grade P.E. teacher uses them to give lessons and in his classes at Windsor Middle School. Just please bring them back and leave them where you found them, no questions asked. (via Dakota Whitney)

TIGGER UPDATE: Not good news..... He is still considered missing since last Tuesday night by Linda at the West Marin Elementary School - that is 6 days now. The person who had a visit from him offered him milk, but could not allow him inside his house due to the resident dog. There are kids back in the school now, and they are very concerned. Linda is asking for residents to keep searching, especially on Manana Way and Viento and in the fields surrounding. Talk to the neighborhood residents, and please - be careful when driving as we now know he is crossing the highway. The concern now is that he has been injured. If you see him, please contain him and call the school at 663-1014. Linda is monitoring the messages and will jump into action as soon as she gets a report.

So this week the Point Reyes Light has a fantastic photo from Art Rogers of a Great White that was caught off of Point Reyes and displayed out front of Tobys in 1976.
http://www.ptreyeslight.com/ar...
AND they have a lead story on the 'mystery shark bite' in Tomales Bay a few weeks ago, on the list of suspects apparently is a Great White: "Ms. Ludwigsen's bite has puzzled some of the nation's foremost shark experts: the cuts are not deep enough to match the teeth of a vicious predator like a great white shark, but attacking a human would be unprecedented behavior from docile bottom-feeding sharks that breed in Tomales Bay. Many of the researchers had guesses, but no one was sure."

Coincidence? I think not! It's Shark Week at the Point Reyes Light!!!

Just got a report that Tigger has been hanging out across the street from the school with the neighbors. He is probably off his normal rhythm because the kids and teachers are off for the summer, and he is such a social guy. Please be very careful driving that stretch of road to not hit Tigger!

Tigger - the West Marin School cat has been missing since Tuesday night. He is easy to recognize as both his ears were removed to save his life from cancer. He is beloved by the staff and students of West Marin School where he has lived for many many years. If you see him please notify the school office, Point Reyes Animal Hospital (663-1533), or Planned Feralhood (663-8497) (via Kathy Runnion)

Answering the requests and concerns of many community members throughout West Marin, I will be adding a number of extra patrol deputies throughout the July 4th holiday weekend up and down our West Marin coast. This will include the usual holiday hotspots, Stinson Beach, downtown Bolinas and beach, Pt, Reyes Station all the way North to Dillon's Beach.
Do t get me wrong, I love a great holiday weekend just like the next person, but the beauty of our coast lands, parks, and communities draws people from all over like moths to a flame.
If the weather is warm we can expect heavy traffic on our small 2-lane roadways and sometimes believe it or not, people get a little thirsty which I've heard leads to some to have a few too many adult beverages...which is fine as long as your responsible but for some reason big holiday weekends like this tend to lead to poor choices and we (cop types) get called to help mediate the problem.
Exercising ZERO TOLERANCE that weekend to those who ruin it for everyone else I hope for a safe and fun weekend for all.
As always, my door is open to all, or if easier drop me an email at dpittman@marinsheriff.org of any concerns, thoughts or suggestions you may have to make this Fourth of July Holiday the best for everyone!
Best!

Anyone know what they're shooting just between Nicasio and the Reservoir? It's massive, whatever it is -- I saw that the stars were being given escorts by the highway patrol, and there are fake signs up ("Rabbit Rabbit") for extras to find the place they're supposed to go.

My North Marin Water bill was cut 50% from last year on this last bill, just by paying attention and saving the dish washing water for the garden. Send ideas to Linda at West Marin Citizen.
