Fast Feet

On Sunday, at about 10 p.m., a Humboldt County Sheriff’s
deputy attempted to stop a 2000 gray Chevrolet Suburban for
a traffic violation on State Route 96 in Hoopa.

The Suburban initially pulled to the side of the road and yielded to the deputy, however it suddenly sped away south on Highway 96. The deputy initiated a pursuit of the Suburban.

The Suburban turned onto Deerhorn Road in Hoopa with the deputy following it.  The Suburban came across a slide covering the roadway and attempted to negotiate around the slide.  While doing so it drove too close to the side of the road and slid off the hillside approximately 75 feet down.  The cab of the vehicle was crushed during the wreck.

One Skinny Horse and Some Plump Bud

On Jan. 8, a Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office livestock deputy responded to a residence on the 2500 block of Bolier Avenue in McKinleyville in regards to a welfare check of a reported skinny horse.

When the deputy arrived at the residence he met with the horse owner and viewed the horse.  The deputy determined the horse was not being neglected and was under a veterinarian’s care.

While speaking with the horse owner, the deputy smelled the strong odor of growing marijuana emanating from the residence.  The deputy left the area and obtained a Humboldt County Superior Court Search Warrant for the residence.

On Friday, at approximately 3:00 p.m., the deputy returned to the residence with additional deputies and served the search warrant.  They located 195 growing marijuana plants in the residence ranging from 12” to 14” in height.  They also located packaging material, approximately 1.5 lbs. of marijuana bud and approximately $1,400 in cash.

    I stumbled upon the outlines of a new American political fault line. It was so new that it lacked a name, stereotypes, cliches, experts and prophets.

On one side were libertarians, blacks, greens, pop […]
