Rotaplast volunteers celebrate 25 years of medical missions to developing countries

_______

A medical charitable organization cofounded by a Tiburon plastic surgeon is commemorating its 25th anniversary this month — and is celebrating the nearly 19,000 lives it has changed around the world through reconstructive surgery.

Since its founding in January 1992, Dr. Angelo Capozzi's Rotaplast International has made 220 surgical missions to 26 developing countries. The San Francisco-based organization specializes in the correction and treatment of cleft lips and palates, as well as some burn deformity reconstruction. Most of the cleft patients are children between the ages of 6 months to 2 years. The burn injury patients generally range from children to 40-year-olds.

Capozzi, now 83, is retired from professional practice and volunteers as the medical director for the organization.

_______

Tiburon police arrested three Vallejo men after residents in a Marinero Circle apartment complex reported that burglars were raiding a supply shed containing power tools for the fifth time in three months.

Francisco Sanchez, 35, Francisco Vargas, 38, and Jose Cervantes, 28, were arrested Jan. 16 on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime, possession of burglary tools and possession of a stolen vehicle. Cervantes was also suspected of possessing a controlled substance and committing a felony while out on bail.

Cervantes was held on $35,000 in bail and Vargas $15,000; Sanchez's bail information was not available. All three cases are still under review by the District Attorney's Office.

Just after 3 a.m., two residents at the 21 Marinero Circle complex reported that they heard people burglarizing a storage shed outside, according to Tiburon police Officer Freddy Gutierrez.

With new state laws, Tiburon officials move to regulate recreational pot

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN
dmccrohan@thearknewspaper.com
_______

Under proposed recreational marijuana rules, Tiburon would allow up to six indoor plants for personal use without a permit, but the Town Council would ban outdoor grows, in-town sale of pot products and, at least for now, delivery within town limits.

The proposed regulations were prompted by a new state law approved by voters in November. Proposition 64 legalizes recreational use of marijuana but gives local governments the power to curtail cultivation, commercial activity and deliveries.

Tiburon has until Jan. 1, 2018, to put limits in place. Otherwise, when the state begins issuing licenses on that date, commercial marijuana distributors and retail outlets could set up shop locally without the town's permission.
