The federal Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI and IRS are conducting a criminal investigation of family members of Mendocino sheriff’s captain, Randy Johnson, the former head of the Tagtie marijuana program.

Agents reportedly found more than 500 marijuana plants on property which is owned by and is the residence of Johnny Johnson, Randy's father

Randy Johnson owns and lives on property next to his father’s.

The DEA, FBI and IRS would not divulge any details.

Randy Johnson has been something of an advocate for medicinal marijuana growing since he was put in charge of the county’s now-defunct marijuana permit program which was shut down after federal authorities threatened to sue the county.


Despite the California Grange's suspension by the National Grange organization, their 140th state convention in Willits went off well with over 170 delegates from around the state attending. 


Daniel FeldmanMaster, Santa Cruz Grange, in an email said: "National Master Luttrell told us that we could not hold this convention, threatened us if we carried out any Grange business if we did meet, and worked assiduously through his agents to scare off Granges from attending it. But, in accordance with the mandates clearly indicated by the corporate laws of CA, we went ahead and convened as the legitimate annual meeting of the CA State Grange corporation." 


The theme was "Growing Farmers."  Among the resolutions passed was "Access to Potable Water is a Human Right" by a wide margin.  Damian Parr, along with Michael Foley of Little Lake Grange, made a presentation on the CSG Farm Ag School project on a proposed first 5 acre site within the 5000 acre Golden Rule Farm in Willits.


The delegate body voted unanimously to ask Martha Stefenoni to vacate her membership in the Grange.  Stefenoni is the Executive Board member who wrote a minority report accusing the state president of charges which led to his being suspended three times in 2012. 




The North Pass Fire Burned Area Emergency Response  report and funding request was recently submitted to the Forest Service Regional Office for approval.

The North Pass Fire consumed approximately 41,983 acres  between Anthony Peak and Covelo.

The funding request for the North Pass Fire is $148,907 to improve roads that were burned over, trail stabilization and repair, invasive plant detection and hazardous tree removal.








The Eel River Recovery Project (ERRP) is inviting the public to attend its second annual retreat at Emandal Farm east of Willits this Saturday October 20th.


ERRP is a grassroots group dedicated to monitoring the health of the Eel River and fostering its recovery. The agenda includes presentations and stream-side monitoring demonstrations.

Erick Burres who heads the California  Water Resources Board’s volunteer monitoring program is a featured presenter and will  give a stream-side monitoring demonstration in the morning. 

Stephen Kullman who heads the Wiyot Tribe Environmental Department will talk about the Tribe’s interest in water quality and fisheries data that ERRP is helping collectThe Wiyot Tribe is currently co-sponsoring the lower Eel River 2012 fall Chinook dive survey with ERRP.

The afternoon will be spent learning about different projects and recruiting volunteers to serve on committees to sustain or expand them. 

Coffee and bagels will be served from 8-9am and lunch will be provided. The program begins at 9am and the retreat ends at 5pm.
