BUT ABOVE ALL...
I’m writing to alert you to an error that we’ve
discovered in your 2018 Summer Guide (June).
In a section called “Heavenly Hikes” you say
that the Bob Middagh Trail is now open to
mountain biking. This is absolutely false. My
organization, Community Venture Partners
Inc., recently won a major lawsuit against the
County of Marin to stop the introduction of
mountain biking on the Bob Middagh Trail.
Mountain biking organizations have been
constantly targeting this trail to use for illegal
rides, resulting in destruction and habitat loss
there. Also, the hiking experience, which residents of Mill Valley raised millions of dollars
to preserve, is being ruined. BOB SILVES TRI,

I’m impressed with your list of Janus words
(Currents, September). Here’s another for
you: sanction, which can mean to authorize or
penalize. And back in college (decades ago) I
knew a guy who would use “beat” for cool and
for crappy. That used to drive me crazy.

I always enjoy what you create each month.
Jim Wood’s article on Chicago (May) was very
fine. Except for one thing. The liberal bias of
Mr. Wood and Marin Magazine has to surface
when he speaks of Trump Tower in a belittling
way. Too bad. ADAIRE WAY LEPS, KEN TFIELD
Respect All Beings
Please stop sending your magazine to our
home. On page 69 (“Not Their First Rodeo,”
October) there is an appalling photo article
on rodeo riders who abuse, tie and torture
frightened innocent animals for “adventure”
— in this era respect and survival of our planet
