ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK
Tiburon resident Nisha Zenoff's book 'The Unspeakable Loss,' published last November, aims to address some of the pressing questions bereaved family members have after the death of a child. Zenoff draws on first-hand accounts from parents, siblings and grandparents and from her personal experiences; her then-teenage son Victor died in 1980 after a fall at Yosemite National Park.

The grief Nisha Zenoff felt after her teenage son died was almost unbearable.

Victor Zenoff was hiking in Yosemite National Park on July 12, 1980, when he tripped running downhill on a narrow switchback. He died after falling 700 feet near Lower Yosemite Falls; he was just one week shy of his 18th birthday.

To pass and be officially formed at Town Council's Feb. 7 meeting, the proposed undergrounding district needed a simple majority of property owners, with votes weighted by parcel size: 54 owners representing about $5.5 million in assessments voted yes, while 47 owners representing about $4.9 million voted no.

_______

A mature grove of 42 eucalyptus, stone pines and Monterey pines on McKegney Knoll will remain mostly intact if the Tiburon Town Council follows the recommendation of the town's parks board.
The Parks, Open Space and Trails Commission voted 4-0 after a Feb. 12 public hearing to recommend the council reject an application by a group of Reed Heights/Tiburon Knolls homeowners who offered to pay $52,000 to cut down 21 blue gum eucalyptus, 15 Italian stone pines and six Monterey pines; Commissioner Phil Feldman was absent. The residents have said they want the trees removed for mainly safety reasons.
