ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK
Plant debris including water hyacinth and tule litters the shoreline in front of Beach Road cottages adjacent to the San Francisco Yacht Club in Belvedere. The debris, which turned up along Shoreline Park, other Richardson Bay shores and throughout the San Francisco Bay, washed down from the Sacramento delta last week, a result of the strong storms that hit Northern California Feb. 6-9. The debris prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to issue a hazard warning to boaters.

 

Delta debris mucks up shoreline

A sludge of floating plant debris washed up along Shoreline Park, Belvedere Cove and other spots along the Richardson Bay shore last week, a byproduct of the pounding storms that soaked the Bay Area and Sacramento delta earlier this month.

Large piles of reeds, water hyacinth and other plants clumped together at the shore near the Beach Road seawall, in the water by Shoreline Park and below the deck at Sam's Anchor Cafe on Feb. 15.

"I've seen debris in the bay, but nothing as much as I did yesterday," Patrick Kerslake, the Tiburon Public Works superintendent, said last Friday.

Streams of debris were visible throughout the San Francisco Bay, leading the U.S. Coast Guard on Feb. 15 to issue a hazard warning for boats and ferries.

_______

The transfer of commuter-ferry service to Golden Gate Ferry may be back on track, but riders aren't yet ready to breathe a sigh of relief as they face schedule changes of as much as 40 minutes and a more than 20 percent fee hike over the next five years.

The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, which operates Golden Gate Ferry, recently announced plans to raise fees across all its service lines by an average of 4 percent per year to cover a projected five-year, $51 million deficit. That includes increases to its ferries that operate out of Larkspur and Sausalito, as well as to Golden Gate Transit, the district's network of bus lines in San Francisco and Marin.

Businesses stand with workers on national 'Day Without Immigrants'

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

Several Tiburon restaurants shut down Feb. 16 as part of the nationwide "Day Without Immigrants" protest, a call for all immigrants — naturalized to undocumented — to boycott work, school and shopping in response to the Trump administration's tough stance on immigration.

Word of the protest was decentralized, spreading mostly through social media and messaging apps, and businesses closed across the U.S. as residents participated in marches, rallies and other protests in Washington, D.C., Chicago and elsewhere.

Protests in Tiburon were subdued but widespread, with at least four downtown businesses and cafes closing shop.
