◼ A Times-Standard reporter and a photographer were at the Board meeting.
Both. Wow. No TIVO this time.
◼ Richardson Grove protesters arrested for disrupting supervisors' meeting
When board Chairman and 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace asked for public comment on the board's consent calendar during the meeting, several people got up from their seats and began singing, “No road widening through Richardson Grove” and, “We are the people and the people say, 'No....' ”The protesters, who oppose the U.S. Highway 101 road realignment project, sat in a circle in the middle of the room and held hands as they sang. They wore matching T-shirts with the phrases “RICHARDSON GROVE ACTION NOW 7076027551” and “NO ROAD WIDENING, CANCEL THE PLAN!” printed on them.... Deputies once again cleared the room. A Times-Standard reporter and a photographer attempted to remain in the chambers to observe sheriff's deputies' interactions with the protesters, but were told to leave.... They refused and were disruptive. After about 20 minutes, several protesters were removed from the room in wheelchairs by deputies. Some walked out. The protesters, their hands cuffed, continued singing as they were wheeled and escorted from the chambers.
Godsey said Tuesday afternoon that Kim Starr, 39, of Eureka; Gavin Wise, 34, of Eureka; Peter Camacho, 25, of Eureka; Jason Proulx, 30, of Trinidad; Emily Gimeno, 31, of Eureka; and Jeff Musgrave, 32, of Trinidad, would be released on their own recognizance.
C'mon, this whole thing has turned into a ridiculous circus. It is kinda funny that Mark is having to deal with it though. Maybe he can have a chat with his friend Ken.
