Melanoma Cases Soar in Marin County
News & Features
Marin County has the highest incidence of melanoma in the Bay Area.  (Photo: Patch Archive)
Michael July 23, 2014 at 01:55 pm
I think this is due to a much higher rate (than in other parts of the country) of people who canRead More both afford and who do get proactive, regular dermatology check ups. Marin has a very high standard of living compared to most other areas of our country. In many other areas people either do not have the mean$ to or do not take the initiative to get their skin checked regularly. Just ask around and I think you would be surprised at how many folks you know have ever been to a dermatologist. Many of us grew up with little to no information on the negative effects of sun worshiping. And we still live in a society where a 'nice tan' is somehow perceived as a fashion statement or as attractive. How absurd when you think about it. Beaches still full of people baking themselves in the sun. When you do get checked regularly it is very common for the dermatologist to have certain spots checked via biopsy or the like. This is how this problem is detected early so it can be addressed. Not everyone can afford to pay for these expensive medical procedures. Please educate your children to the harms of sun exposure so that they do not have to deal with this deadly killer.

Come have a wonderful $10,000.00 dinner with the worst President since Woodrow Wilson. YouRead More Californians are dumb enough to be his main donor state. Lol.
Michael July 23, 2014 at 02:00 pm
these elitists think nothing of impacting other people's lives when they fly into town, close blocksRead More and blocks on their own say, block numerous roads etc. The security THEY have afforded themselves (all on the taxpayers dime) is truly absurd and frankly it is out of control. But most people seem willing to tolerate this behavior (or just don;t give a damn) so the politicians see that as a green light to continue their abusive ways. How dare them create their own royalty. I am so sick of Obama and wish he would stay the hell out of the bay area. He is the worst president we have ever had.

Latinos are less optimistic about the economy than other groups. Patch file photo.

Maybe Latinos are finally realizing that they voted for a community organizer to help them insteadRead More of a businessman? Obama's expertise was ZERO. Since being elected TWICE, he has dropped to below ZERO. Minus 50 to be exact. When not on fund raising tours for the Democratic party he is vacationing or in a state of absent. The border is not secure and the illegals entering are taking jobs from other Latinos. It is that simple.
Becky July 23, 2014 at 08:47 am
Honestly, I believe that the Feds encourage immigration from Mexico because they are Christians, andRead More they want more Christians to fight the Holy War that is coming. (This is not my dream -- it is my suspicion of what some in Washington are up to - so please don't half-read my post, and call me a religious zealot.)
Stan Jacobs July 23, 2014 at 09:16 am
So, what do the others in our melting pot think? Data from any particular supremacist group does notRead More carry much weight in the credibility department. I mean, it is so ludicrous it is like announcing the latest report from the Aryan Brotherhood or Hamas or, perhaps, La Cosa Nostra. Just trying to be inclusive here!
Reginald "Rex" Henderson July 21, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Of course the survey showed improvement. These people get paid more than any other county for theRead More same jobs.

“One of the most effective ways to measure our progress is to ask our own employees howRead More we’re doing,” Peterson said. One of the most effective ways to measure your progress towards what, what your employees think? These people work in one of the nicest places on earth. And they have government jobs that provide benefits few others have like retirement. If they don't like their jobs let them leave. But few leave don't they.

The HIPAA law prevents revealing the name of the Tiburon man, so authorities have to withhold it,Read More and it would be illegal for Patch to report it.

Governments BIG lie (marijuana has no medical benefit) is why the feds keep Marijuana laws,theyRead More prevent cures of all kinds of diseases. Who benefit's from that? IN 1999 Rick Simpson found the cure for cancer - in 2001 he tried to tell the world! http://youtu.be/Ckn5LrzoU7k

We should OUTLAW enriched white flour, refined sugar, HFCS, Food coloring, and any other foodRead More additive that adds to the Obesity and Diabetes epidemic that has hit this Country in the last 2-3 decades. If it's a health issue, 90% of the stuff sold at grocery stores should be banned. Including ALL processed foods that our Corporations are making BILLIONS from.
Bryan Harz July 23, 2014 at 01:31 pm
Just because stores sell foods that are bad for you does not mean you have to buy them or eat them.Read More Folks may want to educate themselves on how to have a healthy diet. Spend more time in the produce isle maybe. Same can be said for weed and alcohol. Why do people always want the government to save them from themselves by banning or prohibiting unhealthy products?
Sierra Salin July 18, 2014 at 10:12 pm
And what a bunch of B.S, and they are both macho idiots. 1. If someone is on your tail and wants toRead More get by, all you gotta do is slow down, and they can get by you near anywhere. Let em go by and good riddance. Don't speed up and or slow down or get righteous 2. So, the guy in front of you is jerking you around and won't let you by, no matter how much you tailgate or crawl up their rear end. Get over it. Neither one of these bozos should have a gun handy. too many hormones and too little sense. Turn and go away from the gun, keep your car out of my garage...... Homeowner sounds like he messed with the guy following, and the guy following also went overboard. Chasing someone into their home? Anyone with half a brain should expect some consequences. Personally, I don't much like guns, especially assault/rapid fire weapons, which have no place in "self" defense, and, most folks WILL defend their homes and family, with whatever they have, and no, we do not need to have assault weapons or carry them everywhere we go, nor do we need to blast, kill, shoot, destroy, obliterate, etc, anyone or anything which does not believe whatever we happen to believe...... And, we are ALL lunatics.

Blah, blah, blah. Everyone second guessing what happened. Shoot him here, shoot him there. UnlessRead More you have been in a situation like this, what you would do is pure speculation. The man that was shot lost most of his rights to Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness as soon as he entered another man's dwelling. To the others that hate guns, too bad. The decision about gun ownership is not yours. Get over it. There are many things I hate about tofu eating Marin liberal mushheads that live in a 15 mile bubble that think they know what the world is about. I have to live with you. Most of you moved to California from another state so you could ruin it. Go back to where you came from.

The guy's a bit old to be such a hot head. Some people are slow learners. Now he will probably sueRead More the guy that shot him. Should have shot to kill if indeed life was threatened, which how could it not be when someone drives their car into your garage in a rage.

Joe, I have the same concerns as you, so I checked up on scheduling. There's a 70 which leavesRead More Mission @ 1st at 12:52 am during the week and runs through Sausalito. Same on weekends. So at least there's one option currently, and if they eliminate the 80 route, they may shift a couple more 70s through Sausalito.

In Novato we are slated by TAM and MTA to expand our capacity to handle multiple bus transfersRead More simultaneously at the bus stop on Redwood between DeLong and Grant. The cost is $4 million. If we continue to reduce bus routes won't their be fewer buses transferring at one time? If as Patti suggests buses are overcrowded why would the Bridge District want to make it unpleasant to take a bus by reducing routes? Is the Bridge district working with TAM and MTA to align different services, changes and upgrades to public transportation throughout the Bay Area? It doesn't make sense to reduce routes but expand capacity.

In my uneducated opinion our City Council WANTS--Hi Density Train and Bus Terminal--so that our HiRead More Density housing numbers--mandated by the State via ABAG--wil Go UP---in the next "Housing Element" go round. They want to please ABAG---they refuse to answer my simple question "Why do YOU want a bus terminal with the capacity to carry half the population of Novato in a single 8 hour day"---They will not answer that question--they defer to the man with two first names--and he doesn't know the capacity and doesn't care what it is--he mocks public speakers and gives cryptic off the cuff untrue answerer's----his answer once was--"Be careful who you listen too"---"Don't use scare tactic's like hi capacity"---When the "source" of the info was pointed out to him ( his consultant)--he said--"Hi capacity doesn't matter-lots of vehicles can go down a road"---I would think that if he knows the capacity and hides it --veracity is an issue and f he doesn't know the capacity (which he didn't) then competence is an issue---and for his salary and cost to YOU and I--he should know the answer if called on or defer to someone brighter.
