12 step programs are not "completed". It's a life change. 12 step does not have a graduation date. It's called recovery not treatment.:) And, yes this young woman needs a 12 step program. But does she want it?

I have 2 kids I take care of and their dad is like that. I have absolutely no trust in him to do his part to take take of his children so I took custody away from him. Now they get good grades in school (A's & B's) and are turning out to be good kids since he is not interfering with their growing up while intoxicated. The bottle is more important to him than the kids. Sad fact but true.

The authorities should take her kids away before she scars them mentally and they turn into future drunks as well.

How do you know she wasn't a grower or high on pot?

This kind of forgetfulness and lack of concern for her kids is very typical of what marijuana does to people. They used to call the parking lot for the Crossroads Bar in Laytonville, "The Midnight Kindergarten" because of all the kids in cars in front of it, even if it was 20 degrees outside. And that place was full of stoners and growers. I'll bet when the sheriffs told the mom how wrong it is to leave her kids in the car, her responce was, "Whatever".

I'm guessing "we" as tax paying citizens ARE already paying for them thru the welfare system.... I say sterilize the mother. Remove them from her care permanently. Find the father, sterilize him and order them {both biological parents} to pay {thru any future wage garnishment} back to the state for having to raise these poor kids who "yes, did'nt have a choice in being brought into this world" .. And cut both parents off of thier government aid/financial assistance programs {assuming they are "using" them}... Get them out of her care and into the care of someone who wants them and wants to provide a good life and positive role model and shelter for them.... JMO

Is she James Sanderson's "co-defendant" (see this weeks AVA article Old Uncle Scratch-it's towards the end of the article)? Bess and James were busted selling weed via Fed-Ex out of state and got popped with over $80,000 cash a few months back. Had a multi-million dollar coast home and were collecting welfare at the same time. If her check wasn't even enough to cover the cost of a sitter, why bother defrauding the state? Poor kids!

Unfortunately this is a sad situation. People with addiction problems also just "happen" to be parents. The addiction comes first. Anything else in life, including their children, come somewhere down the line.

3,912 since Dec.08, you really should see an addiction specialist about your problem. You my friend are addicted to making comments.

The addiction can come at any time. Or does having a child protect people from becoming addicted? You tell me please.

Her name is BESS SHIRLEY SANDERSON. Take a look at her pic in the daily digest booking logs. Next time you see her, I hope you have a lot of snot to share. I for one will be spitting in her direction. (Unless her kids are around that is...)

i actually work at the front desk of the mendocino hotel and REALLY--we had those children for well over an hour before that mother even came looking for them, they had been awake and ctying so loud that a person walking down the street heard them and came in to the hotel to see if the parents were in the lobby......sad story because thoser babies are absolutly beautiful and that women dosent have a clue what damage she is doing to them.... they are probably so confused n scared rt now...and all so she could get drunk......thats just sick

Those babies are probably much better cared for where they are now, it's doubtful this is the first time she ever neglected them.
