Friday, Mendo county filed a motion to quash the federal grand jury subpoena on the grounds that the scope of the subpoena is overbroad , oppressive and constitutes an improper intrusion into the ability of state & local gov'ts to administer programs for the health & welfare of their citizens.


No court date has been scheduled thus far.




 

 

A 20-foot wide, 30-foot deep chunk of Hwy 162 opened under a big rig driving over it Friday morning, closing the highway while authorities work to repair the hole, a mile east of 101.

The big rig was headed east when the road's surface gave way and slid downhill. The Mendo Sheriff's office said that "it appears storm runoff plugged a drain pipe under the highway, causing the water to flow over the highway" and erode the roadway

The driver managed to get the big rig across the holes. The semi truck's trailer was damaged, no cargo was spilled and the driver was uninjured but the rear axles of the trailer were ripped from the truck and fell into the hole.

Highway 162 is closed at mile marker 1.75 until repairs can be made, according to the CHP.


Highway 162 would likely re-open before Monday.


   Before traveling and during your trip, be sure to check current road conditions by calling the California Highway Information Network at 1-800-427-7623, or by visiting www.dot.ca.gov



 

 

 

Sheriff Tom Allman said Friday that the internal investigation has cleared sheriff’s captain Randy Johnson of any wrongdoing related to a federal  raid on property owned by the captain’s family.

But Allman refused to make the report public saying it is a personnel matter and he was given permission to discuss the findings.

“I feel very comfortable in stating that Capt. Johnson was not involved in illegal activity,” Allman said. “But if anyone can provide additional information the investigation will be re-opened.”

Asked how anyone could have missed 500 marijuana plants being grown on the property, Allman said he doesn’t know whether that number is accurate or whether the pot in question was being grown indoors or outside.

endocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said Friday that an internal investigation has cleared a sheriff’s captain of any potential wrongdoing related to a federal marijuana raid on property owned by the captain’s family.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation at Allman’s request after federal authorities raided Potter Valley property owned by the family of Sheriff’s Capt. Randy Johnson. Sources said authorities found 500 marijuana plants.

Allman refused to make the report public on Friday, saying it is a personnel matter. He said he was given permission to discuss the findings.

“I feel very comfortable in stating that Capt. Johnson was not involved in illegal activity,” Allman said. “But if anyone can provide additional information the investigation will be re-opened.”

Johnson was not immediately available for comment late Friday afternoon. He has remained at work during the inquiry.

Federal officials have not divulged any details about the case, which remains sealed under court order.

One of the two parcels is owned by the captain and his father, Johnny Johnson. The adjoining parcel is owned by the elder Johnson and includes numerous rental residences.

Asked how anyone could have missed 500 marijuana plants being grown on the property, Allman said he doesn’t know whether that number is accurate or whether the pot in question was being grown indoors or outside.


In a move that could permanently ban oil drilling along more than 50 miles of Northern California coast, the Obama administration announced plans Thursday  to expand two Northern California marine sanctuaries.

"This area needs and deserves permanent protection from oil and gas exploration," said Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-San Rafael, who led efforts to expand the sanctuaries and retires Jan 3rd.


While national marine sanctuaries ban oil drilling and other extractive activities, and set rules on such practices as sewage dumping by cruise ships, they do not ban fishing or boating.


The newly protected area will more than double the size of the national marine sanctuaries and will extend from Bodega Bay north to Point Arena in Mendocino County.


Obama, however, stopped short of using executive authority to create a national monument, opting instead to use the administrative process, which triggers public hearings early next year, along with detailed environmental studies. It is expected to take up to two years to finalize.



 

 

 

 

Rain is expected through Christmas and beyond, with a break on Christmas Eve, for Ukiah and Inland Mendocino County, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS warns that rain could become heavy at times.


After a mostly sunny day on Monday with highs between 40 and 50 degrees, Christmas Day will see rain, highs between 38 and 48 and lows between 30 and 40 degrees.


Wednesday through Saturday predictions include clouds and chances of showers, with lows ranging between 25 and 34.


 

The news and weather is taking a Holiday break after this morning; we'll return with our regular schedule with the evening news and weather Wednesday at 6:01 pm.
