>Excerpts only today, sorry:
>"Logging death probe continues"
>...Experts will study the site, [Sheriff's Lt. Steve] Cobine said, as he
>and other sheriff's investigators know little about the dynamics of how
>Arcata attorney Steve Schectman is conducting his own investigation on
>behalf of Chain's family and the [Pacific Lumber] company is also
>investigating. Cobine said he doesn't think an outside law enforcement
>agency would take over the investigation.
>The department is thoroughly investigating the circumstances of Chain's
>death because it is a high profile case, Cobine said. It would otherwise
>merely gather evidence from the scene of the accident and talk to
>"They all think we're in (PL President John) Campbell's hip pocket," he
>said. "Its ridiculous. Its ludicrous."
>Cobine said many people are phoning to give their opinion. Some have
>already made up their minds, he said.
>PL spokeswoman Mary Bullwinkel said the company's investigation is
>continuing. Chain's family, which was in the area Monday and Tuesday,
>did not contact the company, she said.
>Earth First activist James "squid" Morry said Wednesday a blockade of
>the road leading to the site of Chain's death, will continue
>"We're holding out for Pacific Lumber's license to be revoked," Morry
>said. "At the very least, we're going to stay there until the timber
>harvest plan has been canceled."
>The state Department of Forestry last week found PL to be in violation
>of two forest practice laws in the Grizzly Creek area.
