Marin County is made up of 19 separate public school districts. Like the rest of Marin County, Novato strongly supports its public school district and is willing to tax itself to supplement the substandard funding provided by the State of California. Novato recently passed a school bond that enabled it to make substantial renovations to its aging facilities. One of the uses of the bond money resulted in this beautiful all-weather track and football field at San Marin High School. My daughter, who is on her high school track team, got the opportunity to compete on this track when the county track championship (MCAL) was hosted by San Marin High School.

We're not the only ones on the planet...
...remember the creatures great and small. Don't forget to look down. While these kinds of caterpillars remind me of childhood and they're so soft and fuzzy... I know they spell a bad year for the oak trees. They're hungry little buggers.
Set fire to something
Preferably a barbecue... and be careful in the Summer when the hills are dry and ready to combust. If you come to town, I'll see if we can get my uncle Jon to "burn some bird" for you. He makes the best barbecue of anyone I know. Mmmm, mmm, mmm!
Play with children
They'll remind you what is and isn't important. Let them lead you down a "secret path" they've just found, even if it was your secret path when you were their age.
