You can help us get Lucas Valley Road Designated a Scenic Road!

On Monday, March 24th Supervisor Susan Adams requested that the Supervisors include staff time for the Scenic Road designation of Lucas Valley Road in next years budget.  The Supervisors did not vote on this request today.

The staff time: is to produce the County’s first ever “scenic protection corridor plan”, which could be adopted by any road corridor in Marin and by one or multiple county roads nominated for Caltrans scenic road program;

The staff time is needed for the application to Caltrans Program; a written Visual Assessment of road corridor; this is a written description of the road and scenery: Caltrans confirms can be written by either volunteers or staff; is non-technical text only. 

It is estimated to require one or two weeks of a staff member's time.

Many members of our community were in support and attended the BOS meeting today.

Sign the petition on the link here to Nominate Lucas Valley Road for Scenic Road Designation!

Board of Supervisors, please Nominate the Road in 2014!

Thank you for your support!

Never Thought I'd Want To High-Five A Teacher For Yelling At A Student, But I Was Wrong

 Laura Willard

I know this is on the long-ish side, but I promise that there's a really valuable message here that makes it worth watching all the way through. 

Jane Elliot is a teacher and diversity trainer who developed the "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes" exercise to teach students what it feels like to be a person of color. This video begins pretty abruptly, where one of the students who's been singled out based on eye color is extremely frustrated. 

At 2:46, Elliot explains why she keeps going even after she's made the point. At 3:35, she delivers an important message. And at 10:05, you may laugh a little, but I think you'll really get it.

Many years ago, I could have been the girl who walked out, not understanding how this feels to the people it affects. I'm glad that's no longer the case.
