After 4 months of not operating through Tunnel #1 and most of the busy 

summer season gone, the Skunk Train is set to resume regular service from Fort Bragg through Tunnel #1 this Saturday, August 17th


Thursday, April 11th track inspectors performing their twice weekly

 inspection noticed a small bulge on two timbers inside Tunnel #1 (which is

 located about 3.5 miles East of downtown Fort Bragg). Tunnel #1 is one of 

two tunnels along the scenic Skunk Train route that was dug by hand and 

completed in 1893 by Chinese laborers.  To date they've removed  300 tons of material.


There will be an official re-grand opening event in September.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

New employees will begin driving Lake County transit buses Friday 

restoring about 60% of the routes. Currently, just four routes, manned by 

managers and strikebreaking employees, are being minimally operated.

The strike began after the workers — who earn roughly $11.50 an hour — 

voted to reject a 2.2 percent pay raise.. They are asking for a 2.4 percent increase, approximately $.28 an hour and restoration of a seniority-based step increase that was suspended in 2010 .



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nine members of the California Assembly and Senate, including Sen Noreen Evans, are calling on the California Department of Interior and EPA to 

investigate reports of fracking beneath the seabed floor off the Coast.

The legislators are asking for possible new regulations of fracking in the

 ocean.

On August 3, the Associated Press reported that oil companies have used

hydraulic fracturing at least a dozen times to “force open cracks beneath the seabed” in the Santa Barbara Channel. 


Oil and gas companies spend more than $100 million a year to buy access

 to lawmakers in Washington and Sacramento, according to Stop Fooling 

California an online public education and awareness campaign. The 

Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA) alone has spent more than 

$16 million lobbying in Sacramento since 2009.
