The San Jose Mercury News
April 11, 1999

Northern California is a booming business area which the White House Drug Czar has concluded also is one of the nation's most active drug centers. With major logging and fishing industries and one of the world's most beautiful coastlines, the district also has its share of environmental problems. So Howard Mintz, who covers the courts for the Mercury News, was astonished when he discovered that TRACFED data showed the federal enforcers in Northern California came in close to the bottom when it came to dealing with white collar crime, illegal drugs, environmental enforcement and many other areas. Fleshed out with extensive quotes and insights from dozens of responsible officials, Mintz's ground-breaking article ran on the front page of the Mercury News on April 11, 1999.
