The U.S. Supreme Court Friday rejected California's request to delay a 

federal order to reduce its prison population by nearly 10,000 inmates.

Prison officials are preparing to implement an expanded parole program for sick and elderly inmates, while also identifying inmates who may be eligible for good behavior.

The administration said that it is drafting notifications to send to victims and local law enforcement officials "to advise them that they may not be 

receiving the requisite period pre-release notice."

The California Department of Corrections extended contracts to continue to house nearly 9,000 inmates out of state, and officials said they are 

considering contracting with county jails for additional bed space.

Jeffrey Callison, a spokesman for the Department of Corrections , said

 prison officials do not know how many inmates might be released.

In its court filing, the administration said officials "continue to develop a 

court-ordered early release system, and estimate that the system will be finalized 

in approximately 15 days."

The ruling comes four years after federal judges found the health care in the California prison system so bad it is unconstitutional.

The administration will continue to pursue its appeal. If the court hears the 

case, it likely wouldn't happen this year.





















Caltrans has announced there will be night work and a temporary road 

closure beginning this week for the Willits Bypass Project. 

East Hill Road will be intermittently closed to through traffic from Sanhedrin Circle to Cemetery Lane beginning Monday, August 5 through Thursday, 

August 8 and also on Friday, August 9 . The intermittent closures at this 

location are scheduled through October 15.  Motorists are advised to seek 

an alternate route.  

Night work for the Willits Bypass will begin Wednesday, August 7 and 

continue through October 15.  Nighttime work hours will be 7PM to 7AM. 

Work will consist of a trucking operation and there will be temporary 

intermittent full closures of Route 101 one mile south of the Haehl Overhead Bridge, and also one mile south of the North Willits Railroad Crossing. 

Motorists can expect ten minute days at each location. 

Any questions may be directed to Caltrans at 707-456-1900.








Public Defender Linda Thompson is appealing in the higher court a judge's decision to hold the driver on a first-degree attempted murder charge for his passenger's alleged shooting at a deputy sheriff's car .

"My client did not have the same mental state that Mr. Miller did," Thompson said Friday, reiterating that Skaggs was just the driver, and that his

 speeding away from Brewster may have saved the deputy's life.

Miller had pulled a gun while Brewster approached the window, and had told Skaggs to "duck," but Skaggs had instead sped away.

Prosecutor Matt Hubley argued that Skaggs crossed the center line on the Highway 253 in order to give Miller a better shot at the deputy's car.

Thompson continues to negotiate with the District Attorney's Office, which she said at first offered 16 years in prison. "I want 10 years," Thompson said.

If Skaggs, were convicted of first-degree attempted murder, he could potentially not be eligible for parole for more than 20 years. 




Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has signed a medical marijuana bill into law which

makes Illinois the 20th state to allow safe and legal access to medical marijuana.

Once this law goes into effect, patients will be able to obtain marijuana at 60 dispensaries -- which will be served by 22 grow locations -- creating the third-largest, state-regulated medical marijuana system in the country.

As a result, 40% of the U.S. population now lives in states with medical 

marijuana laws, and 17 states have decriminalized or legalized marijuana
