The following snippet comes from the Marin IJ:
Muir Beach man cited for cleaning beach
No good deed goes unpunished.
At least that's how Muir Beach resident Sigward Moser felt Friday after he says he was threatened with a Taser gun, forced to the ground and handcuffed by a National Park Service ranger for refusing to stop cleaning up the oily beach beneath his home.
Incredible .. but true.

Around 1970 there was a big oil spill, and many people, including myself, showed up to help with the cleanup. I went to Stinson Beach.
While various officials debated about what to do, the big old redneck bulldozer driver, smoking his cigar, jumped off his rig and said, "Any of your folks wanna clean up this goodam beach? If so, I'm diggin' a trench, you throw the tar into the trench, then I will circle back and push it into a pile. Then I will get the backhoe and put it into the goddam truck and get it outta here".
He started his rig, dup a trench, and we all followed his lead. The beach was clean in about three hours.

I wish it were possible to string something along the Dumbarton, or the
old railroad bridge, to keep some of this oil out of the Southbay.
