The file was too large to upload here, so I put it on YouTube. Here's a short video I took of myRead More husband and daughter dancing at Woofstock. However, the guy to the right of them is what really makes the video. He's awesome and really got the party started! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swGA_JF6tQM

Thanks for the school fundraising publicity! Our chickens will be on display Sunday, hope to seeRead More lots of nice people touring. I'm also going to be having a Halloween costume sale October 6th for School Fuel, so if you have a costume gathering dust in a closet, please bring it by (715 Eucalyptus).

Happy to do these articles, Regina. Make sure you shoot me the details on the costume sale, and I'llRead More include it next time around.

Well man, no offense Tom but trying to make the Republicans look ignorant seems like an easy task,Read More dude.

Good point Margarita! Yes, people should use their real names. Love your word play, man but now IRead More am thirsty.

Hey, Repug Kid, I got it. It was parody. Parody is a hard thing to achieve in writing, man. MostRead More folks don't get it.

Congratulations to the new Leadership group hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. Thank you for beingRead More willing to participate in learning more about Novato and taking time for eight months in this endeavour. Your projects are helpful, especially the one where you teamed with the Rotary to fix the fountain and beautify around it with mulch and plants. So many people appreciate this. Thanks to the Chamber in providing this course in Leadership. I took the class in 2005 and our team worked on supporting School Fuel. It was rewarding to work together and take action on a project as a team. This is what is so great about Novato: working together to continue to foster a community spirit of cooperation. Again, thanks.

Thanks, Eleanor. Clarification - the Fountain Landscape project was done by three service clubs -Read More Novato Sunrise Rotary, Novato Rotaract and Soroptimist International of Novato, while the median is adopted by the Soroptimist International of Novato. http://novato.patch.com/blog_posts/just-do-it-to-make-a-difference However, the project was inspired by the Leadership Class 2012 Blue Team's project, where the team developed a comprehensive marketing campaign for Novato Streetscape to encourage Adoption of a Median (and tagged on Keep it Green concept). The Campaign developed includes a power point presentation, video presentation, brochure and a website. This website has links to the brochure, the medians available for adoption as well as adopted, and one of the video presentations. Here is link for the website www.NovatoStreetscape.org Just want to give credit where credit is due.

When I first met Steve Rucker I thought "this guy is to nice to be real". But what you sawRead More was who he was. He was the real deal. He was to young to leave us but it is good to see that he is being remembered in a worthy cause.

Bob, He was my "Big Bro" (Brother-in-law) and I thank you for the comment on Steve andRead More his legacy. He led his life always by example and he always helped others. A very exceptional human being. I think they broke the mold after he was born.. Brent

does anyone know what the city of novato is planning on renting this space for to these artists? isRead More it the same $1 per year lease or did the council negotiate a better rate like $3 per year?
Joyce August 30, 2012 at 03:45 pm
Maybe the owner at of The Square shopping Center will lend them his empty spaces until he decidesRead More what to do with them.....

Don't forget about "The Homeless Novato Theater Company" -- the IJ hasn't:Read More http://www.marinij.com/lifestyles/ci_21428717/show-goes-homeless-novato-theater-company It details the theater company's sad odyssey since being booted from the Novato Community House and indicates that the Hamilton Theater requires costly repairs to bring it up to code. And of course there's the Officer's Club on the Hill overlooking the Theater and the MOCA . If a private citizen owned all of the derelict properties that the City of Novato is sitting on and mismanaging they would have been subject to multiple fines. Why not sell the "houses" in downtown that are no longer needed for city offices to Habitat for Humanity for tear down or fix ups....there's some affordable housing. Or to a developer for market rate housing? Why not identify some of the costs for fixing the Hamilton Theater and/or the Officer's club for all of these groups needing space? Publicize it. I for one would love to see that eyesore of a Theater and the beautiful ampitheater alongside it used for performances once again.

So nice to see the dogs getting involved with the fight for cancer.

What a great idea! How about a Pets for Peaceful Dissent gathering? Maybe hook it up with theRead More downtown San Rafael Occupy rallies? Or maybe as a sub-group of the whole Occupy Movement nation-wide? Can you even imagine the public outcry if pets were arrested? maced? indefinitely detained? Someone needs to run with this! Someone needs to find my morning meds! Seriously though, there are some mighty scary things afoot that are a real threat to our liberties. Worried about the criminalization of dissent? You should be. Educate yourself. http://rt.com/usa/news/wolf-interview-039/
