Journey for Good
Calin Van Paris’ account of her Habitat for
Humanity trip to Guatemala (Journey, April)
captured my interest. She provided an excellent snapshot of the people, the country, the
Western Highlands and the deep satisfaction
that comes from volunteer service. We have
visited the places she describes, including the
women’s weaving co-op in San Juan la Laguna,
where local women learn to make a living
while also preserving their cultural heritage.
The photographs were also captivating. One of
the best articles I have read in your magazine.
Thanks for running it. MADELINE KELLNER, NOVATO
In the Park
As a regular reader of Marin Magazine I enjoy
hearing about local events, books and people.
I was especially pleased with the beautiful
spread by Kasia Pawlowska (Currents, “Local
Fixtures,” April) on Art Contemporary Marin’s
Parked Art program. This nonprofit organization has been working the past seven years to
encourage contemporary art in Marin by means
of exhibitions and other art events. An outdoor
self-guided sculpture walk will open at Falkirk
Cultural Center on May 25. CLAUDIA CHAPLINE,

In our April Conversation with Mark Laret we
misstated a few facts. Here is the correct information: Mark Laret is the CEO of UCSF Health,
an organization consistently ranked one of
the top 10 hospitals in the U. S. by U.S. News
and World Report. It is not one of the 10 largest
medical facilities in the U. S. The UCSF hospitals have more than a million outpatient visits a
year, not one million outpatients.
The man identified in April’s “Cooking With
Beer” feature for Sessions restaurant was actu-
ally Fort Point Beer Company’s head brewer
Mike Schnebeck, not chef Michael Bilger.
