Monday,Mendocino authorities identified Boy Scout leader Robert Garrison, 55, of Newcastle, as the fatal victim of the  five-vehicle wreck, which occurred  Sunday on Highway 20 near Potter Valley


 Riding in Garrison's vehicle – which was headed from Placer County to Willits for a Boy Scout camp – were several scout members who were injured, the California Highway 

Patrol said.

Garrison's 15-year-old son, Sean, was flown to Children’s Hospital  in Oakland, and 17-year-old Mason Shields of Newcastle was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, both of the teens were reported to be in critical condition.

Three other scout members who were injured as well.

Garrison's 2003 Honda Odyssey was hit head-on by a 2006 Ford 

F-250 pickup driven by 73-year-old Eugene E. Galletti of Redwood Valley before spinning into the path of a 2005 Dodge 2500 pickup driven by Andrew L. Rivas, 22, of Lincoln, 

according to the CHP.

The CHP report said the chain-reaction collision began when Galletti – driving eastbound – failed to stop for two other drivers who were stopped ahead of him

including Mendocino Sheriff's Randy Johnson,who was  waiting to make a turn 

into a private driveway, with his signal on.

A total of 14 people were riding in the five vehicles, the CHP said.







Reporter/photographer Steve Eberhart of The Willits News was arrested at 

7:35 a.m. Tuesday morning on the Bypass construction site while waiting for his Caltrans escort to arrive. He was part of a sweep of protestors 

supporting two activists who locked themselves to both of the giant “stitcher” towers that are punching thousands of wick drains. According to Linda 

Williams, editor of TWN, "The CHP was well aware that he is a reporter. 

" Eberhardt's photography equipment was seized; he is trying to recover it.

Travis Jochimsen ( a second time arrestee) and a woman calling herself 

Blue Heron were able to slip past CHP guards in the predawn  to get to the 

steel towers, which had been lowered to the ground for the night. The towers are now lowered each evening ever since activist Will Parish climbed 60 

feet into an upright tower, occupying it for eleven days. Parrish faces a 

pre-trial hearing Tuesday, July 24th.
Construction  by the wick drains was stopped for the day.







North Coast Congressmen. Mike Thompson and Jared Huffman, joined by a pair of Republicans, introduced the Protecting Lands Against Narcotics 

Trafficking Act, nicknamed the PLANT Act, aimed at imposing penalties for

 environmental damage from pot production on public lands and private 


Huffman, said pot grows are “threatening endangered wildlife, contaminating fragile salmon streams and making forests unsafe for working and 


Thompson said there should be “stiff penalties for the people whose 

reckless and illegal actions” are damaging natural resources.

A Sonoma County report last year said 3.6 million marijuana plants were 

seized on about 9,100 acres of California public lands in 2008, worth more 

than $14 billion; the cost of cleaning up the land was estimated at $100 


Scientists at UC Davis said that 80 percent of California fisheries have been exposed to high doses of rat poison related to illegal marijuana grows.

Nearly 1 million pot plants were eradicated from 471 sites on national forest lands in 20 states last year, accompanied by damage that included leveled hilltops, diverted streams and excessive pesticide use.

The PLANT Act, which was referred to a House committee, instructs the U.S. Sentencing Commission to establish penalties for drug-related environmental damage.
