A Cobb man has been killed in a car crash near Lakeport. The Sheriff’s Office says Darryll Prather died and his wife Lela Prather has major injuries from the Tuesday accident on Highway 29 near 11th Street. The CHP says they collided with Daniel Long of Ukiah who was heading southbound on Hwy 29 with his 3-year-old daughter in his pickup truck. The CHP says Long somehow lost control and crossed the center median hitting the Prathers’ car head on. Both vehicles went down the embankment. Darryll Prather, who was driving, died at the scene; Lela Prather was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. Neither Long nor his daughter was hurt.

Four arrests have been made in connection to last month’s theft at the Robinson Casino in Upper Lake. The Sheriff’s Office says video surveillance captured images to ID the suspects as Fabian Rosales-Reyes, Raymond Casillas and Carlos Casillas including footage showing one suspect using his foot to push the victim’s purse away from the table where a second guy grabbed $1500 in cash from the purse while the third guy acted as look out. All three were ID’d as validated gang members. On Tuesday the Sheriff’s Office Gang Task Force and Lake County SWAT executed warrants at home in Lakeport. There they found alleged gang and drug paraphernalia as well as methamphetamine. All three men were arrested, as was a fourth guy, Damian Rosales Reyes, for Obstruction during the search.

The Ukiah City Council has said no joining a proposed regional groundwater management group but did not reject it outright or move to create its own agency to oversee valley groundwater. The City needs some sort of plan for groundwater management by the end of June to comply with the state’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. The Daily Journal reports at their meeting this week the council didn’t feel they could support the new Joint Powers Association that would include Mendocino County, the County Resource Conservation District, the Upper Russian River Water Agency, the Russian River Flood Control and Water Conservation Improvement District, and the Sonoma County Water Agency, plus reps from agriculture and tribes. Council members cited concern over how much say the two Russian River agencies would have in the current version. The Ukiah City Council voted to reject the proposal but try to negotiate a revision to it.
