  • You ain’t so big, you just tall, that’s just about all!

  • This is all fine and dandy but where the hell is code enforcement on the 101 shitshow between Willits and the divided highway to Laytonville? Up to twenty dilapidated vehicles in the yards and structures on the verge of collapsing with people occupying them. Answer: there’s no money in it. It would cost the county a fortune to haul all that shit away.

    • Plant some cannabis there & call the SO

    • Are the people you’re complaining about doing illegal grading to make a flat spot to put their “derelict vehicles?” Are they taking water from a stream without permits to wash them every day? Are they polluting streams? Are the selling them to the public to consume? Are they making sizable profits without paying taxes on them?

      If they are or you think they are creating a public health issue, report them. If they aren’t, then offending your eyes with “shit shows” is not a cause for the law.

    • I call that stretch of road dueling banjos.

  • Registered guest road…. lmao. Maybe he thought there was immunity!

  • Notice that there’s no extreme fines like Humboldt. Mendo is booming. They are on it New restaurants going in. Garberville falling apart. Best food comes from the food trucks that are never there when I’m hungry. Dammit. I’m hungry
