Cogdill To Guest On Mother Lode Views

Sonora, CA — Senator Dave Cogdill will touch on a myriad of subjects on Mother Lode Views this weekend.

When it comes to the “early prisoner release” program approved by the Senate Thursday afternoon, Cogdill comments, “Just recently there was a story in the Los Angeles Times about a “low level” inmate (incarcerated on drug charges) who was released on a furlough Friday to take care of business at the D.M.V. I can’t understand how that could happen. The prisoner along with another inmate left the prison. When the second inmate returned he told corrections officials the other prisoner would not be returning. In the interim the first prisoner had kidnapped a 17 year old girl, held her at knifepoint and forced her to use her ATM card for money. When that didn’t work he slit her throat and killed her.”

As for the continuing decline in the timber industry and the closure of the Standard Sierra Pacific Industries mill Cogdill comments, “There is a lot of win-win that could be achieved but you’ve got to break through this stranglehold that the environmental community currently has. I believe they have a misguided belief that what they are doing is in the best interest of the environment. I think it’s quite the contrary and the facts prove that out. It’s a major frustration we all deal with.”

Mother Lode Views can be heard on AM-1450 KVML at 9:30am on Saturday and 8:30am on Sunday. Mother Lode Views can also be heard on Today’s Country, 93.5 KKBN, Sunday at 8am and an hour later on STAR 92.7.
