Initial assessment[edit]

The article is Start Class by length alone, but most of its content is lists of items. Needs more beef in ecolgy, history, geology. Needs sources and images. Anlace 23:42, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

63.197.235.94 (Cities and towns) suspect edits[edit]

Edits by this person are suspect. Enters a lot of unsatisfied links (20 in Contra Costa County, California) bad spelling, bad naming, nonexistent locations, bad link syntax, etc. Unclear if vandalism or simply not capable, See article talk for CoCoCo and this user's history. I cleaned up for CoCoCo but reverted all in Alameda County, California and Mendocino County, California -- Leonard G. 05:34, 24 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Politics[edit]

I've removed a poorly written paragraph regarding the current status of Measure B and the elections process and replaced it with a sentence about the non-final state of the elections. I know this is a contentious issue and I think it's important to have an impartial view on the page. Some of the information in the paragraph might be usable if appropriate citations can be found to verify it, and it'll probably still be a few weeks before the final election results are certified.

CNBC's Marijuana Inc. Documentary[edit]

Mendocino County took a beating in CNBC's Marijuana Inc., Inside America's Pot Industry documentary in early 2009. The program asserted that the marijuana-growing "Emerald Triangle" centers on Mendocino County because of a combination of a favorable ecology, the county's liberal marijuana decriminalization law, a permissive attitude on the part of much of the populace, and participation in the marijuana trade by a surprisingly large portion of the populace. I inserted a properly-cited reference to this documentary near the top of the article at "liberal views on marijuana". I leave further updates and re-writes to an editor with more knowledge of the local situation and the implementation of Measure B. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Darwinianphysicist (talkcontribs) 12:44, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
