Larry Stotter displays his decathlon medals, awards and achievements at his Tiburon home. Stotter, 87, ranks among the top five decathletes in the world in his age group.

With renewed passion for track and field,

Larry Stotter lettered in track and field in high school. Today, he ranks among the top five decathletes in the world in his age group, No. 1 in the U.S.

There just happens to be a 70-year gap between those two milestones.

Stotter, now 87, ran the hurdles in 1946. When he left high school the next year, he hung up his cleats.

"I had nothing at all to do with track after that," says Stotter, a Tiburon resident. "Not until 2014."

Those activities are all illegal because they're not authorized under the current master plan for the property, according to an April 10 letter sent to North Coast from the county's code-enforcement department.

More charges as Tiburon man in child porn case indicted, is back in custody

By MATTHEW HOSE

_______

Days after a federal judge ordered a Tiburon man be taken back into custody on accusations of possessing child pornography, a federal grand jury indicted him on additional counts of distributing, receiving and conspiracy that could carry up to 80 years in prison if convicted.

Bryan Petersen, a 24-year-old Red Hill Circle resident, was taken back into custody May 9 and is being held at a jail in Alameda County after prosecutors alleged he preyed on local children through babysitting websites and still posed a potential danger to the community. He had been released a week earlier on a $500,000 bond secured by his father's home, placed under house arrest and banned from accessing the internet.
