Winner — Black & White: Peleg Perelmuter for 'Best Friends'

Seven winners named in annual
photo contest

Photos of a dog taking in an open-space view, a moonrise over Blackie's Pasture and the fog rolling in over the Belvedere Lagoon were among the winners of the 16th annual Belvedere Photography Contest, sponsored by the Belvedere Community Foundation.

The contest's seven winners, selected from 171 entrants, were honored Nov. 9 at the community foundation's annual meeting. Judges sifted through the submissions to award first-place distinctions in five categories: wildlife and animals, architecture, landscape, people and events and black-and-white photos. The judges also awarded one honorable mention and a first-place prize to one photo submitted by someone ages 5-18.

Belvedere's Marine Gueguen Strage received first place in the wildlife and animals category for "A Dog's Life." She says she and a friend were walking her Brittany spaniel, Harley, in Tiburon open space last winter when she saw the dog enjoying the view.

The competition's judges said the photograph was "like an old-master's painting — something you could hang in your living room."

_______

A Mill Valley-based Montessori preschool plans to move to the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary, where it says it will tailor its curriculum to take advantage of the celebrated nature setting.

The Tiburon Planning Commission Nov. 8 voted 3-0, with Commissioner John Corcoran absent and one board seat vacant, to approve the conditional use permit that will allow the Harmony Montessori School to operate at the Audubon site, 376 Greenwood Beach Road. The approval is conditional on the school providing the town with a fully developed child drop-off and pickup plan that meets the approval of the Community Development Department.

The children who attend the school are ages 2-5 and need to be escorted into the school, meaning that drop-off and pickup takes longer.

_______

Tiburon voters told appointed incumbents David Kulik and Holli Thier they can keep their seats on the Town Council, giving them the Election Day nod over challenger Jack Ryan, the program manager of the Yellow Bus Challenge.

At The Ark's press deadline Nov. 13, the Marin Registrar of Voters had not updated its tallies since late election night, Nov. 7. So far, 1,555 ballots have been counted, representing just 25.9 percent of the town's registered voters, though it was unknown how many mail-in and provisional ballots were still to count.
