Greetings … the purpose of keeping you informed of the Willits ByPass protests is to give you a preview of what we will face when CALTRANS heads north from Willits to Richardson Grove. Attached is a Press Release on the current status of the protest.
Presently, the Federal injunction is keeping the Richardson Grove project halted and CALTRANS has not moved to have the injunction lifted. However, this is merely a pause in the action.
Here is an excellent ABC news report on the ByPass that highlights the absurdity of spending $210 million (plus mitigation funds) on an unnecessary and enormously destructive project.
Please consider supporting the Willits protest by donating funds if at all possible. Here is information:
To support the new legal fund do the following:
A legal fund has been established to challenge the Willits Bypass in State Court. To donate specifically to this fund, make checks out to Keep The Code and write in the memo “Little Lake Valley Legal Fund”
• Give your check to a SOLLV member
• Bring it to SOLLV Central, 716 South Main Street, 1A
• Mail it to Keep The Code, PO BOX 131, Willits CA 95490.

Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters or emails to State Senator Noreen Evans, Governor Jerry Brown and Congressman Jared Huffman in support of the protest would also be helpful. Very truly yours, Barbara Kennedy
