Facing a severe jail housing crunch, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors agreed to add 456 beds to expansion plans for the Adelanto Detention Center. The jail currently holds 706 inmates, but supervisors previously agreed to add 912 beds in a new four-story facility at the site. Some supervisors felt that the initial proposal did not go far enough, considering the county's current shortage of 3,500 beds, which has forced sheriff's officials to release 118 offenders early each day.

A solar energy project proposed for development on public land in the Mojave Desert would create jobs mostly for Las Vegas and electricity for San Francisco at the expense of the relatively pristine area of east San Bernardino County where it would be built, San Bernardino County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt said. In an interview, Mitzelfelt, whose district includes the Ivanpah Valley project site, about 20 miles south of Las Vegas, said last week that BrightSource's proposed 440-megawatt, 4,000-acre Solar Electric Generating System "should not go forward."

San Bernardino County's chief administrative officer suggested Thursday that Supervisor Dennis Hansberger's beleaguered chief of staff step down because investigations into the aide's land deal are sullying the county's image. "This embarrasses the county," Mark Uffer said. "It raises questions about our commitment to ethical behavior."

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted unanimously in favor of a proposed sewage sludge composting plant that would be built eight miles outside the high desert town of Hinkley, despite strong objections from residents worried about potential health hazards. "I think this will end up being the best project possible under the circumstances," said Board Chairman Paul Biane. The town was made famous by activist Erin Brockovich, who helped force Pacific Gas & Electric Co.

Spurred by desert homeowners tired of noise and dust, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to uphold an ordinance that clamps down on off-road riders gathering in groups or trespassing on private land. But supervisors promised to review some aspects of the ordinance criticized by riders. In particular, supervisors promised to look at the restriction on "staging" -- when a large group of riders gathers on private land.

When the description of a gold sports car fleeing a street gang fight in Adelanto cackled on his police scanner, San Bernardino County Probation Officer Nathan Scarano thought it sounded familiar. But Scarano wasn't certain the car belonged to Christopher Henry until he checked the computer tracking the global positioning system device strapped to Henry's ankle. It showed Henry leaving the June gang melee in Adelanto.

With a horn blast and a whoosh of air brakes, a special train carrying 254 rail fans, civic leaders and adventure seekers rolled out of Barstow on Sunday morning with a goal of reviving interest in passenger rail service across the Mojave Desert. The train was the Kelso Flyer, six vintage cars pulled by an Amtrak engine between Barstow and a remote mission-style depot in the heart of the 1.6-million acre Mojave National Preserve. As it gathered speed, passengers settled into lounge and observation cars with sleek, Art Deco-style interiors for the 90-minute ride.
