On the first day back for Reed Union School District students, many parents opted to drive their children and then walk them to class, which meant additional drivers on the road during peak congestion hours. Officials expect that to subside this week. At the same time, several bus routes were significantly altered by drivers and supervisors on the fly the first day, causing kids to arrive to school as much as 90 minutes late, with little improvement after school as parents reported waiting 30 minutes or more at bus stops.

Tiburon and Belvedere officials were in high spirits early last week when they hit their signup goal and won a cash infusion from Corte Madera to help fund the Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0, the subsidy program designed to get local students onto school buses and out of the cars that bring Tiburon Boulevard traffic to a standstill twice a day.

But major logistical glitches marred the first big road test on Aug. 20 as bus drivers got lost, routes were changed on the fly and parents and school officials were left infuriated when students were as much as 90 minutes late for drop-offs. The problems forced the district to change several routes and eliminate some stops entirely.

Tiburon homeowners who offer short-term vacation rentals through sites like Airbnb and VRBO got some bad news last week.

At its Aug. 19 hearing, the Tiburon Town Council voted 3-2, with Mayor Frank Doyle and Vice Mayor Erin Tollini dissenting, to repeal a 2010 ordinance that had allowed rentals of fewer than 31 days with a business license, $100 permit and payment of a 10 percent hotel tax.

_____

Schools in Tiburon and San Rafael were temporarily locked down early Aug. 21 after a Tiburon man reportedly confronted a visiting priest at St. Hilary School then holed up inside Mission San Rafael Arcángel. Authorities were on high alert after family members initially told police he might have had a gun.

The unarmed 56-year-old was taken into custody in San Rafael about 1:30 p.m. and transported to Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae for a psychiatric evaluation about three hours after he was reported on the St. Hilary campus, which includes St. Hilary Catholic Parish, according to Marin County Sheriff's Office Lt. Doug Pittman.
