Two men from Fort Bragg have been arrested on drug charges. The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Dept. reports some deputies saw suspect Terry Counterman after finding out he’d been in touch with another man they were searching for, Garrick Hornlein for a burglary in Tracy. Tracy Police had been looking for the guy and Mendocino deputies had gotten close to him but say he ran from them twice in the last month. They also say he was connected to several thefts in Fort Bragg. Counterman was arrested because deputies say he helped Hornlein escape arrest. Counterman booked on $15,000.00 bail and shortly after Hornlein was found and also arrested. He also had drug paraphernalia on him at the time so he’s held on no bail.

State Sen. Bill Dodd has introduced legislation to establish a California Wildfire Warning Center. The center would be a network to include automated weather and environmental monitoring stations with fire-weather forecasts and threat assessments in case of a wildfire. Dodd says extreme weather from climate change is the reason for some of the worst disasters we’ve ever had in Calif. He says his bill would warn of dangerous wind and weather conditions before wildfires happen so there’s time to de-activate power lines and pre-position resources, something he says could save lives. If it passes, the center would be managed by three agencies, the California Public Utilities Commission, the office of Emergency Services and Cal Fire.
