The National Congress of American Indians has 

called on Congress to halt work on the Willits bypass .

The Sherwood Valley Band of Pomo Indians asked 

for the resolution after construction crews ruined 

historic cultural site.

The tribes want federal funding for the project 

withheld until Caltrans can adequately address 

concerns over the potential for damage to other 

cultural resources. 

The tribes’ resolution has not yet been sent to 

members of CongressA spokesman for Rep. Huffman said he cannot address the request to stop 

funding at this time.

But in a written statement, Huffman joined tribes and federal authorities in calling for an investigation into what led to the mistake.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Fort Bragg will soon see a taxicab on the streets 

following approval of a permit by the City Council last Monday. Mike Riley, who operates seven cabs in 

Lake County, will use one of his cabs in Fort Bragg .

 

Police Chief Scott Mayberry performed a background check on Riley and the company and gave the city 

the all-clear.


Riley said he can deliver people anywhere on the 

coast at $3 to pick up and $3 per mile afterward 24-7.


Riley said he expects to have a cab in Fort Bragg around Dec. 1.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A new local law designed to protect industry, an ad-hoc committee on water issues and a tax-sharing agreement with Ukiah are the topics at the 

Mendocino Administration Center on Low Gap Road Tuesday.


If adopted at the 9 am meeting, the "Right to Industry"ordinance would require "residents or businesses 

moving onto land that is directly adjacent to industrially zoned parcels to sign a disclosure," that the property "may be subject to inconvenience or discomfort

 arising from use of machinery ."


The discussion arises out of complaints "that are 

often the simple consequence of day-to-day industrial operations" from the neighbors. The 

staff report cited "the long-term costs to the economy of Mendocino County 

because "Manufacturers and other industries are 

"often" discouraged from establishing operations 

here "by local residents who ardently object to any 

disturbance to their lifestyle. 


No incidents of such 

complaints were given.


In other business, the board will consider appointing an ad-hoc committee to review "all currently available 

information regarding releases of water from Lake 

Mendocino as well as downriver diversions in 

Sonoma County."


At 5:30 p.m., two board members appointed to an ad-hoc committee  will meet with the Ukiah's committee  to forge a tax-sharing agreement .


Thanks to the Ukiah Daily Journal, for this story.

 

 

 


Ukiah Ambulance announced that "Within the month, they will no longer staff an ambulance in Willits 

because of unexpected competition from from 

Verihealth, Inc. which in Sept began providing 

ambulance service and Howard Hospital began using for all of its inter-facility transfers causing the Ukiah Ambulance call 

volume to drop by 90 percent.


A letter expressing Ukiah Ambulance's confusion 

about being forced out of Willits was sent to Rick 

Bockmann, CEO of  Howard Memorial Hospital on 

Oct. 16 but Ukiah Ambulance has received no 

response. 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Army Corps of Engineers said it lacks the money to keep some visitor facilities open at Lake 

Mendocino and Lake Sonoma.


The resolution that ended the 16-day gov't shutdown did not release all of the money

 the Corps needed and the h shortage will not be 

corrected until January.


Most day-use facilities, such as picnic grounds, will remain 

open at the two lakes, and Lake Sonoma remains 

open for fishing and boating, although water levels at Lake Mendocino are too low to keep the boat ramps open. Most restrooms at both parks, however, remain closed, and the parks will be cutting back on litter 

removal and other maintenance. Campgrounds at the two lakes will be closed immediately.
