The 45-year-old facility's rebirth would figure into a broader effort to reconstruct stations in Woodacre, Hicks Valley and Point Reyes Station over the next few decades.

    Thursday Jun 23 | Point Reyes Light

    The list of proposed designs to replace the Green Bridge just got whittled down: Caltrans announced last week that it will no longer consider a suspension bridge or analyze it in an upcoming environmental impact report, a draft of which should be released this fall.

    Wednesday Jun 15 | Point Reyes Light

    Though most visitors to Marin County's parks and open space preserves feel satisfied with their experiences, barriers to access remain for Latinos and seniors, according to a study issued by the county in April. Based on two small focus groups from San Rafael tapped to evaluate the experiences of underserved park users, Latinos and seniors cited a lack of transportation and prohibitive fees, as well as safety concerns and an absence of Spanish-language signage, as reasons for visiting less often.

    Wednesday Jun 15 | Point Reyes Light

    Dennis Rodoni of Olema and Dominic Grossi of Novato garnered the two highest vote counts for the District Four supervisor seat, with 30.7 and 26 percent of the vote, respectively, across the district-but how did they perform in West Marin's villages? An analysis of precinct returns found that Mr. Rodoni won by wide margins in many areas here-no surprise, given his local roots and success in fundraising. He won about 60 percent of the vote in Point Reyes Station and Olema, Inverness and Bolinas, and 53 percent of the vote in Stinson Beach.

    Thursday Jun 9 | Point Reyes Light

In a contentious and crowded nine-candidate race for a judge seat on the Marin County Superior Court, county public defender and former Inverness resident Michael Coffino enjoyed a razor-thin edge of less than one percent over deputy county counsel Sheila Lichtblau, by a 10,000 to 9,683 margin.

    May 19, 2016 | Point Reyes Light

    The intense and competitive race for District 4 supervisor is as important to our readers as any office or measure on the 2016 ballot. Our county representative must see the depth of the crisis facing West Marin-and understand how each of its pieces is interdependent with the others-if we are to change course.

    Is there a high-profile fugitive in our midst? A 54-year-old man on the F.B.I.'s top 10 most-wanted list for murdering his wife and children in 2001 in Arizona may have been, or may be, in West Marin. A local told the online news site and aggregator the West Marin Feed last week that the federal agency "was just here" in Olema, looking for a man named Robert William Fisher-a fact Sheriff's Lieutenant Doug Pittman confirmed on Facebook.

    Apr 28, 2016 | Point Reyes Light

    What do District 4 candidates think about the county's approach to housing? What about the lack of health and mental health services in the San Geronimo Valley? Those were some of the questions that seven supervisor hopefuls-Dominic Grossi, Wendi Kallins, Dennis Rodoni, Tomas Kaselionis, Mari Tamburo, Alex Easton-Brown and Brian Staley-fielded last Wednesday at a candidates night hosted by the San Geronimo Valley Healthy Community Collaborative. The set-up was tough-candidates had 60 to 90 seconds to answer questions-but the event still managed to reveal a few more positions and differences between hopefuls, as well as some gaps in knowledge about issues.
