By Sarah Ravani - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
Search resumes on Tomales Bay for 70-year-old oyster farm owner Rescue crews returned to Tomales Bay on Wednesday morning to resume a search that started a day earlier when the 70-year-old owner of a Marin County oyster farm went missing after heading out on the water in a motorboat. Tod Friend, an owner of the Tomales Bay Oyster Co. in Marshall, vanished about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday after embarking on a short boat trip his employees said he’s made “a million times.” An employee of the neighboring Hog Island Oyster Co. reported seeing the Friend’s empty boat spinning in circles with no sign of Friend in sight, officials said. On Wednesday, officials from the Coast Guard, the Marin County Fire Department and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office were out looking for Friend.

By Cynthia Dizikes - Monday Sep 4, 2017
After a long weekend of record-breaking heat, Bay Area residents anticipated the return Tuesday of a familiar summer companion: the marine layer. “Clouds will be back and a bit of patchy fog,” said Charles Bell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “We are going to see a return of that natural air-conditioning across the Bay Area.” Forecasters expect the week will bring temperatures far closer to normal, with San Francisco in the mid-60s to lower 70s, Oakland and Berkeley in the 70s and lower 80s and San Jose in the 80s. Communities further inland, such as Livermore, are expected to be in the mid-80s, with some spots hitting the low 90s.
