Drove to Vegas yesterday shortly after this horrible accident occurred on Pierce Ferry at MP 7, by the Mormon church:
Contrary to the wishful thinking of the Dolan Springs tourist haters, both drivers were locals. According to Facebook posts, the driver of the car was in the oncoming lane and DOA and the driver of the truck William “Skip” R Frakes Jr. is recovering with a broken foot.
We’ll see many more of these head on accidents if our supervisors (Jean Bishop for District 4) go ahead with the idiotic plan to turn Pierce Ferry into a 3 (three!) lane highway. Dolan Springs needs a bypass and in typical Mohave County m. o., our BOS ignores reality — they couldn’t possibly care less about human lives.
Here are some new pictures of the Joshua Tree massacre on Pierce Ferry and Greggs Hideout (Antares on the other side of Pierce Ferry.) They’re done drilling the new well and I’ve been told they’ll keep on clearing going up Patterson Grade, but I have no first hand knowledge. I will do more research and I’m thrilled that Jan Emming is looking into this now as the people of Meadview and Jean Bishop are so indifferent.
The issues are not only the protection of Joshua Trees, desert tortoises and our precious eco system, but the farmers are using up our water and polluting our water and air with pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, etc. I would not object to SUSTAINABLE agriculture producing organic food for LOCALS, but growing almonds in monoculture right there is just not right. We have so much land all over the county (such as along 93) with not a whole lot of vegetation to begin with.
They cleared a LOT MORE and while I was told they would go north along Pierce Ferry, they also cleared west on Greggs Hideout.

I noticed that many candidates emphasize how they will NOT vote for a tax increase. Apparently incumbent District 4 supervisor Jean Bishop is so afraid of being branded a “tax and spend liberal”, she refused to answer my questions about her 1/4 cent sales tax increase proposal. Jean Bishop’s evasive response from my post about… Continue Reading
