If you’re getting tired of BART strike news or the seemingly never ending federal government shutdown, Patch is here to help with a few of our favorite happy stories from this week.
Speaking of the feds, a precocious fourth-grader from Belmont stole our hearts with her letter lamenting the fact that the shutdown forced her class to cancel their annual trip to build sandcastles on Ocean Beach.
Over in Berkeley, a story that could have ended completely tragically got a silver lining when two motorists leapt to action to save a man struck by a train.No round-up of good news would be complete without a cute-animal-of-the-week post. This week’s comes courtesy of San Rafael Patch, which posted this video of a bobcat kitten in Marin County.
