   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

Court affirms Dyer Mt. environmental process

Lassen County Superior Court Judge Donald Sokol denied a request for a writ of mandate from three environmental groups seeking to block the development of the four-season resort at Dyer Mountain near Westwood.

Sokol issued his ruling supporting the county’s environmental reviews of the project Thursday, Dec. 30.

The environmental groups — Mountain Meadows Conservancy, the Sierra Club and Sierra Watch — contended the final Environmental Impact Report, certified by the Lassen County Board of Supervisors Sept. 25, 2007, “should be vacated and set aside along with the subdivision map and development agreement.”

Sokol’s decision included a number of rulings — all supporting the planning process followed by Lassen County, the Lassen County Board of Supervisors, Dyer Mountain Associates, LLC, and nearly 60 as yet unnamed respondents.

“The county is gratified that the court has upheld the nearly decade long environmental review process for this project,” said Richard Crabtree, Lassen county counsel. “It’s nice to see the will of the voters expressed in the 2000 initiative may finally be recognized. This project will obviously be an economic boon for Lassen County.”
