Some residents want the Sausalito Arts Festival to open its books to the public. The festival is run by a corporation that isn't required to do so. But a citizens group said hundreds of people who volunteer for the event should know how money is generated and spent. About 10 Sausalito residents formed a citizens group, Accountability, Responsibility and Trust in Sausalito, to seek public disclosure of festival revenue and expenses.

A controversy lasting almost 30 years at a houseboat marina came to an end Thursday when a regulatory agency approved plans for 38 new berths. The Bay Conservation and Development Commission unanimously approved expanding the 245-berth Waldo Point Harbor to provide space for Gates Cooperative residents who have been illegally moored in the marina for years. Members of the counterculture group endured arrests, eviction threats and lawsuits but refused to leave their homes.

The death of a man found floating in a Sausalito marina appears to be accidental, authorities said. The Marin County coroner's office identified the man as Dennis Siden, 58, a San Mateo County resident who kept a boat at the Sausalito Yacht Harbor. An autopsy revealed no sign of suspicious injuries, Assistant Coroner Gary Tindel said Monday. Siden, whose residence was in Portola Valley, was last seen alive Friday night on a dock at the yacht harbor, which sits just west of the ferry terminal.

It will soon be against the law to feed pigeons in Sausalito. The City Council passed the new rules after local merchants complained that feeding the birds was causing a mess. Sausalito city officials say that business owners have been spending thousands of dollars over the years to clean up bird waste. In February, a city ordinance will go into effect making it illegal to feed pigeons and other wild animals.

A memorial fund in honor of Joie Ruth Armstrong, a popular Yosemite naturalist who was found murdered in the national park last month, has received donations totaling more than $10,000 since its inception just over a week ago. The fund will be used to promote Armstrong's work--helping children to discover and care about nature and the outdoors. "The fund grew out of our desire to do something to honor Joie and her work," said Tanya Eckert of the Yosemite National Institutes.

If I were to poll travel writers about the most uncool place in the country to visit -- a destination so overrun with camera-toting tourists that its very name triggers a shudder of disdain among the travelerati -- I'd wager my most beloved suitcase on Sausalito. Forget Branson, Mo. If Pepperidge Farm has immortalized your town in a cookie -- Sausalito, Nantucket or Chantilly, anyone? -- it's a safe bet your days as a respectable, emerging destination are long past.

By all accounts, Yosemite naturalist Joie Armstrong was someone you would have wanted to know. Lovely, lively and devoted to the outdoors, she was among the rare ones who find a way to meld their passions with their professions. This month, a year after her murder near her home in the national park, 10 girls will get a gift from Armstrong. For 10 days, they will backpack, climb, cook and sleep outdoors in Yosemite's pristine wilderness.

There was once a time when garlic was consumed mainly for medicinal purposes. From ancient Egypt to 16th-Century Paris, garlic held a hallowed place in the annals of herbal medicine. Furthermore, inhabitants of the Balkan countries believed that rubbing a freshly cut clove around doors and windowsills was the best way to keep vampires at bay. These days the "stinking rose" has attained culinary stardom in this country.

The weather was awful, but I went anyway--to spend one of El Nino's most ferocious weekends here on the theory that not every getaway may be sunlight and rosebuds, but can still be an adventure. Sausalito is fabled as a cultural never-never land, both light years ahead and decades behind. Where else can an hourlong flight from Burbank take you back 30 years?
