New Long Valley Road in Spring Valley is closed for a couple of days while the Lake County Public Works Dept. builds a temporary bridge. The road has become increasingly unstable. Currently New Long Valley Road is the only way in and out of Spring Valley since other roads also have erosion and weather issues so residents were encouraged to evacuate or be prepared to stay put until Wednesday. Some Deputies and Northshore Firefighters have stayed there.

A Covelo woman’s been charged with Harboring a Wanted Fugitive after Mendocino Deputies learned a man they were looking for was staying at her house. Leonard Whipple, also known as Ed Davis, was found last Wednesday at the Ledger Lane home of Chayni Frazier. Whipple had a warrant out for violating his Post Release Community Supervision. The Sheriff’s Office got a tip he was at Frazier’s home and Deputies were able to surround it and arrest him without incident. The Sherriff’s Office says Round Valley Tribal Police had told Frazier earlier in the day of Whipple’s warrant and warned her she could be arrested for harboring but she still allowed him to stay. She’s been booked on $15,000 bail. Whipple was booked with no bail.
