Nearly 100 people dropped in on the CalTrans Willits Bypass open house this week. There was no organized presentation, and it was unclear to many what the purpose of the meeting was.

The pending lawsuit against CalTrans over the bypass has had some effect on the initial phases of the project. Plans for a "groundbreaking ceremony" have been shelved pending the outcome of the current request before a federal judge requesting an injunction to stop the cutting of trees along the project route.

Project personnel remained vague to questions about when the tree cutting would actually begin, apparently in deference to the pending litigation.



 

 

 

 

 

A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal to poison predatory birds that are harming the snowy plover population on Clam Beach in Humboldt County has been put on hold by the Board of Supervisors who asked the Service to hold public outreach meetings on the issue first.

In an effort to protect the Pacific Coast western snowy plover -- a small shorebird that was listed as a threatened species in 1993 -- the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to use an avicide called DRC-1339 to kill off predatory ravens and crows to help increase the local snowy plover population.

Ravens, and to a lesser extent crows, are a main reason why the reproductive success of plovers in this area is poor compared to other places. Local snowy plovers would continue to extinction if it weren't for the immigration of other snowy plovers from Oregon.




 

 

 

 

 

A CHP officer shot and killed a Southern California man who apparently assaulted her during a traffic stop near Lower Lake Wednesday afternoon. 


The officer was outside her vehicle, calling in information about the vehicle parked in a turnout on Highway 29 when the man approached and “started choking her.” They fell to the ground and struggled as the man tried to grab the officer’s gun. She apparently beat her attacker to the draw, firing one shot into the man’s chest. 


The mortally wounded assailant got back into his car, drove about 30 or 40 yards before the car veered off the road, through a fence and into a vineyard where he was found dead. 


The car had been reported stolen in Anaheim. The dead man had a criminal record that includes arrests for violence on peace officers, sexual assaults and drug offenses.


Witnesses confirmed her version of events. 




 

 

 

California Water Service Co. representatives faced  unhappy and  angry Lucerne residents at a meeting last week on the company’s proposal to raise water rates 77 percent over three years.

More than 30 people attended the meeting, where ratepayers complained about struggling to pay their water bills after several large increases in the decade Cal Water has run the system.

Community members at the Wednesday night meeting were told that it will take the CPUC about 18 months to make a final decision, and to expect a decision in January 2014.



 

The Mendocino Council of Gov'ts (MCOG) is unveiling five alternative proposals for Vision Mendocino 2030a regional Blueprint Plan to guide sustainable change in Mendocino County over the next 20 years.   


MCOG is now hosting a series of community workshops to receive feedback from the community and identify the preferred future growth scenario. 


 

They are asking the public to come to one of the seven workshops to help identify the best growth scenario for your community.


 

For more information about the Vision Mendocino 2030 project, please call MCOG at 707-463-1859. 


A full list of the times and locations will be on the KZYX newsblog tomorrow morning.
