ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK
Sig-Britt Ivey of Tiburon walks her two dogs, Milo and Girlfriend, at Blackie's Pasture last week. Ivey is petitioning the town for an enclosed dog-run area at Blackie's and petitioning the county to allow dogs at Paradise Beach Park near her home in unincorporated Tiburon.

Dog owners petition for
fenced-in area at Blackie's

A resident who wants to see two Tiburon parks more accessible to dogs is quickly adding supporters to her pack.

Paradise Drive resident Sig-Britt Ivey has started a petition to create an enclosed area for dogs to play at Blackie's Pasture. The petition, which also seeks to change the rules at Paradise Beach Park to allow dogs in general, had garnered more than 300 signatures on Change.org by The Ark's press deadline.
"It's kind of taken on a life of its own," Ivey said. "So many people are saying they want it."

The Ark was unable to verify how many of the signers live in the area; several of the people who left comments on the petition had their locations listed outside of the Tiburon Peninsula.

Resident's child-development show debuts on Marin TV

By JEFF DEMPSEY

_______

When Kelly Krueger Thomas was pregnant with her first child, Kingston, four years ago, she read articles and books voraciously, determined to learn everything she could about helping her unborn son reach his highest potential.
One of those books, "The Making of a Genius" by Aaron Stern, stuck with her. The book is based on the idea that all experiences, even everyday ones like a walk to the grocery store, can be learning opportunities for a child.

"It really got me thinking about how much influence we can have over our children's lives and how much a child learns and absorbs during the early years," says Krueger Thomas, a Tiburon resident.

O'Donnell will step down from Tiburon Town Council, creating another vacancy

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

The same night newly elected Tiburon Town Councilmembers Holli Thier and David Kulik are expected to retake the oath of office Dec. 6, Vice Mayor Emmett O'Donnell will step down, skipping his rotation as the town's next mayor and once again creating a council vacancy that will need to be filled by appointment.

O'Donnell, who is in his second term after first being elected in 2009, is following through on a pledge first made this spring. In April, when the Town Council was forced to change its odd-year election schedule to align with even-year statewide elections under a new California law, the council voted to extend the terms of sitting members to a fifth year. O'Donnell said at the time he would only finish out the four-year term he was elected to, in part because his son is off at boarding school and he doesn't want his council obligations to hamper his ability to fly back and forth to visit.
