There have been many requests to hear the four part series on homelessness here in Mendocino County from Sheri Quinn in its entirety. 

Here are the four parts. Just click to play or right click to download.

The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a 28,000 dollar agreement with Sicpa, a product security company, for the enablement and use of their medical cannabis inventory tracking software. Sicpa uses tags with bar codes to track plants from the ground through harvest, manufacturing and processing to the end sale. Jane Futcher, host of the Cannabis Hour on Kzyx, explored this decision at the supervisor's meeting.

The homeless in Mendocino County have few options for shelter.  The temporary winter shelters are closing soon and in Ukiah, the police are constantly telling them to leave the city. More than a dozen illegal camping tickets have been issued to homeless individuals in the past six months. A group of about 15 recently had to vacate their campsite in downtown Ukiah near the Depot the beginning of April.  In part 4, Kzyx catches up with them as they break down their campsite.  Then, we hear from Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman.

The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors adopted the county’s new medical cannabis cultivation regulations on April 4, 2017. The new changes take effect May 4, 2017 and will be carried out in three phases through January 1, 2020. Many details still need to be worked and some cannabis growers worry about how it will impact small-scale marijuana farmers.

In a time of high drama over executions in Arkansas, the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments Monday in a case that could determine the fate of two of the condemned men in the razorback state, as well as others on death row elsewhere.

At issue is whether an indigent defendant whose sanity is a significant factor in his trial, is entitled to assistance from a mental health expert witness who is independent of the prosecutors.

As the Florida summer heats up, President Donald Trump is expected to decamp from his weekend retreat at the Mar-a-Lago Club in West Palm Beach to spend more time at one of his golf clubs in New Jersey.

Now the sleepy town of Bedminster is bracing for the attention — and the security bills — that may follow.

Four out of five older Americans with hearing loss just ignore it, in part because a hearing aid is an unwelcome sign of aging. But what if hearing aids looked like stylish fashion accessories and could be bought at your local pharmacy like reading glasses?

That's the vision of Kristen "KR" Liu, who's the director of accessibility and advocacy for Doppler Labs, a company marketing one of these devices. She thinks a hearing aid could be "something that's hip and cool and people have multiple pairs and it's fashionable."

The body of Associate Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, the first African-American woman to be appointed to New York's Court of Appeals, was found dead in the Hudson River on April 12.

At first, clues led authorities to believe she committed suicide: There appeared to be no signs of trauma on her body, she was fully clothed and there were no obvious signs that a crime had taken place.

A couple of years ago, Kiev business journalist Yuliya Savostina decided to try an experiment: to spend a year living off food and other goods produced exclusively in Ukraine.

Inspired by the local food movement in the United States, Savostina started a blog to document her experience. She didn't expect it to last very long.

Emmanuel Macron, a centrist politician who's never held elective office, and Marine Le Pen, the far-right firebrand who wants to take France out of the European Union, are expected to advance to next month's runoff for the presidency of the country, according to official results.

Kuki Gallmann, a conservationist best known for her book I Dreamed of Africa, was ambushed and shot while she drove across her conservancy in Kenya Sunday morning.

Gallmann, 73, was shot in the stomach and "severely injured" while surveying her property with rangers of the Kenya Wildlife Service, according to her brother-in-law Nigel Adams and a press release from a farmers' association of which she's a member.

She was flown to a hospital in Nairobi for treatment, and was still conscious and speaking after the attack, according to The New York Times.
