Fifth District Sup. John Fenley last week, during the Board of Supervisors meeting, vented his concern over increasing marijuana production within Trinity County and the lack of any concerted efforts to reign in growers.

He recognizes, as do we, this issue has reached a boiling point.

I, too, spent most of my savings and every vacation for 13 years building my dream home on Hayfork Creek. Lived here happily for 30 years. Then the pot grows came. Started with two.
