ALAN BRUNE / BELVEDERE-TIBURON LANDMARKS SOCIETY

The south-facing wall of Belvedere's China Cabin has been removed so crews can repair damage done by the elements. The Beach Road landmark should have a fortified wall by April, according to the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society, which oversees the cabin.

 

Landmarks Society aims to complete China Cabin repairs by next month

The south wall of Belvedere's China Cabin is getting a facelift to repair damage caused by 40 years of exposure to the elements.

The bay-facing wall of the Beach Road landmark has developed soft spots from wind, fog, heat and rain, said Alan Brune, the executive director of the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society. The society oversees the China Cabin, the former social hall of the P.S. China, which served the Pacific Mail Steamship Co. between San Francisco and Asia in the late 1860s.

The work, which is expected to cost $35,000, began in late February.

"We were just concerned," Brune said. "So we figured it was time to do a major reconstruction rather than just the minor repair work."

Brune said when they tore off the back panels to the cabin, "you could actually squeeze it and water would drip out of it."

Belvedere City Council: For now, no surgical deer sterilization

_______

A divided Belvedere City Council put a nail in the coffin for a proposal to surgically sterilize the city's deer herd.

In a 3-2 vote, the Belvedere City Council decided at its March 13 meeting to not reinvite Dr. Anthony DeNicola, the owner of White Buffalo Inc. and a pioneer of the ovariectomy sterilization surgery, to come to the city for a consultation. Claire McAuliffe and Bob McCaskill, the two councilmembers who requested DeNicola come to the city in the first place, dissented from the vote.

The move came after the city previously invited DeNicola to visit in February. However, after a grassroots group of residents that was putting up the money for DeNicola's consultation requested that the city hold off on the meeting, the city canceled it with the option to reinvite him later.

Conservative radio host claims hate-crime attack outside Servino

Prominent conservative radio host Michael Savage, a Tiburon resident and early supporter of Donald Trump's candidacy for president, claims a man attacked him in a politically motivated hate crime and pushed him to the ground outside a Main Street restaurant last week.

Tiburon police officers arrived at a reported fight outside Servino Ristorante just after 8:25 p.m. March 14 — the day Savage released his latest book, on Trump — to find the fight broken up, with both men insisting the other started it.

The two men, identified as Michael Alan Weiner of Paradise Cay — better known as Michael Savage, the 74-year-old host of nationally syndicated radio show "The Savage Nation" — and John Spreckels Rosekrans, a 65-year-old Mill Valley resident and heir to the Spreckels Sugar Co. fortune, both requested the other be put under citizen's arrest. They were cited for misdemeanor battery and released at the scene.
