More than 100 participants — in teams with two people and one bicycle — competed in the adult 15K, family 10K and youth 8K, which featured 10 challenges that had to be completed alone or in pairs. The top winners were Tiburon firefighters Mark Fitzgerald and Wes Poole in the adult race, Nellie and David Ross in the family race, and Richard Cherry and Chris Merron in the youth race.

Belvedere voters to consider renewing city's fire and emergency tax

By MATTHEW HOSE

_______

Belvedere voters will decide next month whether to renew the city's ability to collect a fire and emergency services levy on commercial and residential units.
Measure C on the June 7 ballot, known as the fire tax, allows the city to adjust its budget appropriations limit — and to continue collecting taxes already approved by voters — so it can continue contracting fire services. The rate for fiscal 2015-2016 will be $702 per residential unit, $800 per commercial unit and $141 per vacant parcel toward the contract with the Tiburon Fire Protection District for its fire services, along with the emergency services of the Southern Marin Emergency Medical Paramedics System.

Hands-on teacher at St. Hilary wins
Heritage & Arts Community
Educator Award

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

The art studio at St. Hilary School is an image of ordered chaos, a clearly creative space with jars of Mod Podge, paintbrushes, drawing tools of every ilk, large sheets of paper and children's works of art in progress on shelves lining the wall and escaping out into the hallway. There's a sink for washing up, dozens of paint-streaked red aprons hanging on hooks and a tall shelf stuffed with art books for reference and inspiration. It's a world of imagining and acting on imagination.
Though she might insist this art studio belongs as much to her students, this is the domain of Chyah Weitzman, St. Hilary School's director of art, who has just been named as the recipient of the Tiburon Heritage & Arts Commission's 2016 Community Educator Award.
