Nearly one year ago
Letters to the Editor

It's a good thing that all of the friends and family of Nicole Lynn Quigley have very understanding employers and a lot of patience.

On Monday, Sept. 14, 2009, we got to go to court again and watched Jason Whitmill's attorney Glenn Brown work his magic; he was given a two-month extension, moving the trial date to Nov. 23, 2009, to try and find some taxpayers that want to pony-up and pay for a specialist to reconstruct the horrifying accident his client caused back on Oct. 6, 2008.

I guess Glenn Brown did not like what be heard from the specialist the California Highway Patrol provided at the preliminary hearing. The court denied Anthony Flores a separate trial; this is good news.

On Friday, Sept. 18, 2009, we were back in court, this time to listen to Glenn Brown asking the court to listen to some cockamamie appeal to try and delay things even further; this one will be argued on Oct. 15, 2009.

On Oct. 6, 2009, it will be one year since Jason Whitmill and Cheri Marcelli made the decision to race from Willow Creek, apparently drunk and on methamphetamine, chasing Anthony Flores, Brittany Ferris and Jodyne Aubrey, killing my daughter and almost killing my wife. Who knows what was in the Flores' vehicle; it ran from the scene to get a new paint job and cover up any evidence.

Two judges in Humboldt County and the California Appellate Court have now denied Glenn Brown's appeals. Brown forwarded it to the California Supreme Court on Sept. 4, 2009; we are waiting for their response.

How long can this craziness possibly go on before one of the judges says enough is enough and how long will the taxpayers of this great country of ours continue to let these government agencies run wild.
