Belvedere's newest Citizen of the Year, John Telischak, has deep roots in the city.


The 70-year-old has lived in Belvedere for 32 years, giving back through his involvement in local government, boards and committees, along with various other peninsula organizations. But he says he didn't do it for the recognition — he just loves helping the community.

Telischak, who sat on the City Council for eight years, twice serving one-year terms as mayor before retiring from the council in 2012, will be honored at Belvedere's 36th annual Town Hall meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. Jan. 26 in the Belvedere Community Center at City Hall, 450 San Rafael Ave.

As anyone who has ever gone tide pooling knows, sea stars are pretty cool.
Clinging to rocks in the intertidal zone, these marine invertebrates move along on hundreds of tiny feet chewing up baby mussels, barnacles and snails. If they lose an arm or two, they can grow another one.


But sea stars are also a sentinel species that can tell scientists about what is happening in our marine environment. Now a researcher at the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies has uncovered evidence suggesting that climate change may be driving these small creature north out of their historical ranges.


"This is preliminary data," says biology professor Sarah Cohen, "but the answers we've gotten so far have been quite a surprise."

Tiburon may become first Marin city
to require solar on
new homes

______

Tiburon could become the first city in Marin to require new homes to be outfitted with solar energy technology.

The town took the first step Jan. 14 when the Tiburon Planning Commission voted 5-0 to recommend that the Town Council amend the town's zoning ordinance to incorporate the new regulations, which are modeled after those in an ordinance adopted by Sebastopol back in 2013.

The council is expected to take action on the recommendation at its Feb. 4 meeting, according to Community Development Director Scott Anderson. If approved, the ordinance would be reviewed again no later than March 31, 2017, and possibly updated in light of any potential changes in tax incentives or solar and alternative energy options.
