    Thursday | Marin Independent Journal

    The referral to first-hand witnessing of the guy reparking multiple cars was only minutes after a street sweeper had gone by - not after two hours! It is a parade that follows the sweeper every Monday morning and most return to the same parking spots they've occupied for weeks, months, even years. They are only moved out of the way for 15-30 minutes until the sweeper goes through, so by 8:30 the streets are 100 percent occupied again.

  15. Marin IJ Editorial: Mowing flap grows into fire-safety modelRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Sep 20 | Marin Independent Journal

    In fact, one of the region's most devastating wildland fires - the Oakland Hills fire of 1991 - started on Oct. 19. The 1995 Vision fire, which swept across more than 12,000 acres and destroyed 45 homes in Inverness Park, started on Oct. 3. It is against that frightening backdrop - and many more in similar landscapes across the state - that neighbors in Novato's Pacheco Valle rallied in 2015 to voice their fear about an unmowed meadow at the entrance to their neighborhood. For years, the 14-acre meadow - when it was land controlled by the Marin IJ as part of its Ignacio headquarters - was mowed, sometimes twice a year, in order to reduce the potential fire risk.
