Help School Fuel help fuel our schools. Do it now. You can always come back and read the rest of the article when you're done, maybe after you play a couple of rounds of Words With Friends.

On Sunday, Sept. 16, it's a car wash fundraiser for Novato High's AVID program from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Way to go, Marin Coffee Roasters!
