Belvedere honors its citizen
of the year, citizen emeritus

Belvedere's Tom Cromwell knows that getting the Tiburon Peninsula prepared for a worst-case-scenario disaster is an uphill battle.
But despite the difficulties faced by the geographical realities of living on an isolated peninsula with only two roads out, for the past two decades Cromwell has worked tirelessly to get the community in the best shape possible to react.
He successfully lobbied for a permanent first-aid base. He trained citizens to stock supplies for themselves in case they were stuck. He championed the creation of a portable trailer on Belvedere Island containing first-aid supplies.
Now, in addition to being labeled by City Councilmember James Campbell as "the Tiburon Peninsula's godfather of emergency response," Cromwell has been named Belvedere's Citizen of the Year for his service to the city. Alongside him, estate lawyer Bill Kuhns will receive the Citizen of the Year Emeritus award.

More than $26,000 in goods stolen in rare Belvedere home break-ins

_______

Belvedere residents have been rattled as burglars ransacked two island homes for $26,000 in jewelry, electronics and clothing in a rare spate of home break-ins over three days.
In both cases, police say the burglars entered the homes through unlocked windows during the daytime.
On Jan. 26, thieves got away with more than $10,000 in jewelry, computers, purses, shoes and watches after breaking into a Fern Avenue residence through an unlocked bathroom window.
According to Belvedere Police Chief Patricia Seyler, the resident arrived home about 5:30 p.m. to find the front door of her house unlocked. When she entered, she found the home ransacked, with drawers open and her belongings strewn all over the floor. She also discovered that many items were missing from the house.
