William Crosby, a Mammoth Lakes resident who earlier this year filed a claim for damages against Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes following his arrest for an alleged medical marijuana violation, has now filed a lawsuit against both entities in federal district court.
Crosby was arrested in December, 2010. He has maintained since then that he was following the medical marijuana laws. The county rejected his claims for damages last month.
A possible wind farm near Benton has some area residents up in arms, especially nearby property owners.
The proposed project is still at the preliminary stage, with only a few test towers (six) planned and with full approval by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) still not certain.
But with the potential for many more of the 200-foot-tall wind towers coming on line (should the test towers show good results) some residents are none too pleased with the whole idea.
