According to an article in the Willits Weekly bylined by Mike A'Dair, Mendocino County was largely in  compliance with CEQA when it approved expansion plans for the Harris Quarry, Superior Court Judge 

Cindy Mayfield has ruled. However Keep The Code, 

the group opposed to the expansion was ruled to be 

correct on two of the twenty points on which they 

sued the county.

This all means that while the project remains 

certified, the project is no longer approved.

County counsel Tom Parker noted that Northern Aggregates will have to be re-approved.

Judge Mayfield ruled that two areas needed 

additional work: examining alternatives to the intent 

to keep the plant open 100 night a year and reviewing alternatives to making the asphalt plant permanent.

Keep the Code's Bob Whitney said his group was 

disappointed that the Judge did not require an 

entirely new environmental review for the portion of 

the board's approval that will effect the entire county.




CalTrans project managers are scrambling after the 

lowest mitigation bid for the Willits bypass project came back at three times their $12.7 Million estimate. 

The lowest bid of the three, offered by DeSilva Gates, came in at $39.3 million. 

The mitigation project bid package included 

mitigation planting, erosion control, earthwork and 

fencing for an expected 2,000 work days. The bid 

opening date was put off until Oct. 22 after CalTrans received a significant level of negative feedback on 

Aug. 16 from the Army Corps of Engineers and again on Sept. 6 from the Regional Water Quality Board 

and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Some of the feedback concerned prior missed 

deadlines; grazing practices; incomplete, missing or 

incorrect plans and drawings; issues over the 

conservation easements and endowments; issues associated with stream maintenance; use of herbicides:  failure to include the new Willits sewer plant in 

plans; the role of irrigation; and frequent 

contradictions between the actions required on 

certain parcels by different parts of the plan and no 

long term contract to ensure availability of grazing











A twenty four year old man being sought for the 

stabbing death of his mother in Springfield, Ore., was traced to his father's Brooktrails home and arrested earlier this week.


Sean Kelley, 24, was apprehended at a Primrose 

Drive residence, after Mendocino sheriff's deputies 

were alerted to his presence there and to an 

outstanding, no-bail warrant for his arrest.

Kelley, who has a history of mental health issues, 

had been quickly identified as a suspect in his 

mother's death which occurred two weeks after 

Kelley had been arrested and released for threatening his mother with a knife.

The mother's car was found abandoned near 

Greenville in Plumas county, where Kelley's bother 

lives. Detectives learned from him that Kelley had 

gotten a ride to his dad's house.

Police from Springfield drove down to pick him up

and by Thursday already had him in their local jail.

Fifty local veterans returned Sunday afternoon from a North Coast Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials that were created in their honor. The 

trip was a project of South Ukiah Rotary.The veterans returned to surprise Welcome Home Rallies.  

Mendocino Veterans' Welcome Home rally was at 

the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds' . Jim Sligh, project chairman, said "We owe a debt of 

gratitude to these heroes for all that they have endured on our behalf. It is important that they were able to see the national monuments that honor those who 

never made it home from war. "





Stay tuned for Wildoak Living@ 9:00 AM when

Johanna talks with Daniel Richter of the Citizen’s Climate Lobby about how climate change is impacting the world's oceans and life on earth.
