She wasn't hiking alone; in the video it says she was with a male friend
Karen Popp April 20, 2014 at 10:28 am
The report I read said she and male friend had parted because she wanted to return to the car and heRead More had supposedly decided to keep hiking. Her father is the one who reported her missing. I haven't read much about his whereabouts in all this.
teresa April 20, 2014 at 04:32 pm
Yes, odd to me that he'd continue on in the dark without her, and just how did he get home? Her carRead More was left there and her dog made it back without her. Did her "male friend" not get alarmed that she didn't come back? Why did so much time go by before reporting her missing?

I always enjoyed my visits with Russ; got a haircut from him every month. Russ was a throw back toRead More a time when there were real barbers in real barbershops. He'll be sorely missed.
Steven V Bacon July 22, 2013 at 12:15 pm
I am grateful to have known Russ and will remember him with Joy!
Stephen Tracy July 27, 2013 at 09:29 pm
I will miss Riss. He cut my hair from '83-'88. Always told me he would retire to Montana. HadRead More his pulse on the times and youth in particular. Memo to parents; Russ knew more about your kids than you did! For me personally Russ was a special character. A rational thinker, a sympathetic ear and one, who when asked, would dispense some very sound advice. Not just a barber, Russ was much more to many people; especially the kids of Mill valley and interlopers from Sausalito like me. Love you Russ. Drinks are on me wherever you are.

Bon voyage Hans. I'm glad to have known you.
Kirke Wrench May 22, 2013 at 09:30 am
I only met him a dozen times when we were photographing the same event for different newsRead More organizations, but I always enjoyed our brief chats. He seemed like a wonderful and kind man, as well as an outstanding photographer. I will miss him.

I' m "so wicked pissed" along with you, Cate. Thanks for your personal and sympatheticRead More description of the attitudes and actions of your Boston community. Riding the Green Line past Copley will from now on give way to a silent moment or two.
Dave Lecuyer April 18, 2013 at 12:56 am
You really captured the moment. Beautiful writing.
Scott Rubin from Mathnasium April 18, 2013 at 11:13 am
Cate, hope you did not have any friends or family directly affected by the bombing.
K DeVoe March 24, 2013 at 01:46 pm
Laura was a dear, loyal friend and bright light in my life for many years. I'll miss you. Kate
Janna Barkin March 16, 2013 at 01:03 pm
Beautiful eyes. May her memory be for a blessing.
Franklin Carter March 16, 2013 at 06:14 pm
She was as her name suggests. She was a beautiful girl both inside and out. I'm am so sorry for thisRead More tragedy, for her family and those who loved her. And, for those who are still in the hospital, pray they recover fully to live life, remembering it is a gift that can be taken away in the blink of an eye.

"Time for a state wide audit of all departments." Maybe so Kev... but those audits costRead More money too. Probably would spend more on the audits than monies uncovered.
paul goeltz July 21, 2012 at 07:39 pm
hopefully they hid the funds to use on the parks, she might have cared?, not right but..
Kevin Moore July 22, 2012 at 12:24 pm
Audits do cost money, so does fraud. $53 million hidden away. That is half of the shortfall forRead More this year. Carnegie OHV park bought a track of land to expand the park. One reason for not completing the expansion was lack of funds. I am sure the hidden $33 million would have helped pay for it. The OHV fund is funded by registration fees and other taxes.

Chuck was such a gentle giant in Novato – he will be missed – he will not be forgotten.
Bill McDill March 28, 2012 at 03:53 pm
Chuck was truly one of the good guys. He always had a smile on his face, a good word, and anRead More intelligent opinion, rare commodities nowadays.
joe May 24, 2011 at 12:56 pm
We really do not understand what the big fuss is? Its baseball in a baseball stadium. I reallyRead More doubt that they can attract 1500 fans, meaning less traffic, parking etc. The lawyer they hired created a huge disaster, when he used those memorable statements to the audience. There is way too much speculation here. If most of the community wants the team, and only a few are against it, then let it be. If they build it, the will come! San Rafael needs an economic boost and a family friendly activity for the community.
Sarah S. May 8, 2012 at 05:35 pm
I agree ! i hope they can get a baseball team in san rafael ! it would bring the community togetherRead More and it will give people something to do in the nighttime. also, i doubt it will be very much more traffic through there than the events they host already in the park.
