The rare aurora borealis snuck up on (some of) us on Friday night here in West Marin. The pictures tell one story, but this outstanding timelapse video by Elizabeth Sbrocco ( @ejsbrocco ) from behind the Inverness Store is closer to what the cosmic experience really felt like.

Hello Community,

An elderly man in Inverness recently had a medical emergency and is now in a nursing home. His cat is alone in his house, and has been since Easter, but thankfully a neighbor has been coming by to feed her. People are trying to find a home for her.

She is 15 and a lap cat and cuddler. She has been good with dogs and other cats in the past from what I was told. Right now though she is a little scared and skittish since she is all alone. If you might be interested let me know.

Thanks,

Laura Brainard

"The history of Point Reyes National Seashore, one of the most iconic national parks in northern California, is a story about how the forces of colonialism changed and now continue to shape the fate of public lands in the United States and the campaigns waged to fight back and protect Indigenous land.

On today’s show, we dive into this story, considering the legacy left by the waves of colonization that violently upended the lives of the Coast Miwok peoples who lived there, and one Indigenous woman’s struggle to preserve her family history."
Lots of road cleanup happening today in West Marin, drive safe! Thank you for cleaning up!

Part of the beauty of a small town is that people tend to notice (and have feelings) about small changes. A parking spot shuffle this week next to the Station House Cafe in Point Reyes Station. Anyone know why it changed?
