An apparent murder-suicide at neighboring Strawberry Manor homes last week left 61-year-old Strawberry resident Theodore "Ted" Charles Rodden and 41-year-old Calistoga resident Andreas Kreiden dead — and detectives baffled as to the events that led to the incident.

The two bodies were found with gunshot wounds in adjacent backyards Aug. 20 and 21 on Carlotta Circle, behind Strawberry Village, prompting a double homicide investigation by the Marin County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Doug Pittman said family members at 154 Carlotta Circle found Rodden lying in the backyard and called 911 shortly after 7:30 p.m. Aug. 20, initially requesting medical assistance. But when deputies arrived, they determined Rodden had died and called in the coroner's unit, which inspected the body and discovered a gunshot wound.

After checking the neighborhood early Aug. 21, deputies found a side gate open about 7 a.m. in the neighboring backyard at 152 Carlotta Circle, Pittman said. There they discovered the body of Kreiden, who also had a gunshot wound and a rifle nearby.

Authorities suspect Kreiden killed Rodden before turning the gun on himself. Pittman said the sheriff's department had no recent history of calls to either residence but that the investigation is ongoing. Further details are yet to be released.

If you attend the upcoming Tiburon Taps beer festival, you'll enjoy a drink that is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in human history, one that goes back to at least 5,000 B.C. However, you'll have a much wider choice of beer flavors than the folks who lived in Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt.

The inaugural festival, thrown by The Ranch — Tiburon and Belvedere's joint recreation agency — and some 70 volunteers, will offers unlimited tastings from 60 Northern California craft brewers, along with live music and food, from 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 6 at Point Tiburon Plaza.

Among brewers at the event will be Marin brewers Moylan's Brewery & Restaurant and its sister brewpub Marin Brewing Company, Mill Valley newcomer Headlands Brewing Co., Iron Springs Pub & Brewery, Baeltane Brewing and Pizza Orgasmica, alongside Bay Area mainstays like San Francisco's Anchor Brewing Company, 21st Amendment Brewery, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers and Petaluma's Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Strawberry, most Tiburon homeowners face sewer line inspections

New rule would
apply at sale or
with major remodel

By Deirdre McCrohan

Property owners in the Richardson Bay Sanitary District will now be required to get a video or other inspection of their private sewer lateral pipes when they sell or remodel their homes, or when the district performs sewer rehabilitation projects on their streets.

Richardson Bay Sanitary's board of directors voted 4-0 Aug. 19 to adopt the ordinance enacting the new regulations, which impacts all Strawberry homeowners and those in incorporated Tiburon northwest of the Middle Ridge Open Space area near Gilmartin Drive. It takes effect Sept. 18.
A sewer lateral is the portion of sewer pipe that runs from a building to the public sewer connection on or near the street. The average length of a lateral pipe is 51 feet; it can cost $3,500-$15,000 to replace one, depending on its length and condition.

The law doesn't dictate who has to fix any problems that are revealed, just that they have to be fixed within 180 days of the report. If the inspection occurs at time of sale, that means that buyers and sellers have the option of negotiating who does the work.

Richardson Bay Sanitary is nearing the end of a multiyear project to upgrade public sewer pipes in its jurisdiction. More than 130 homeowners in the areas where work was done took advantage of discounts to replace their laterals at the same time.
