Two arrested for theft, drug possession

May 25, 2017

On Monday at approximately 3:15 p.m., Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies received a radio call for service regarding a theft in the 47900 block of Center Street in Gualala, California.

Deputies contacted a representative of Robertson Enterprises and determined an excavator bucket with an estimated value of $1,800 was stolen from the aforementioned location between May 15th and 16th. 

A new iteration of a non cultivation Ordinance for Mendocino County was accepted at the Mendocino County Board of Supervisor's special meeting on Tuesday, May 23. That is according to Jude Thilman, owner of Dragon Fly Wellness Center, a dispensary in Fort Bragg. She said a number of people responded to the written documents that came from Mary Lynn Hunt, Chief planner for the county planning and building services. They included cultivators, manufacturers, dispensary owners, and others in the industry, she provided Kzyx with the details from this part of the meeting.

The Caspar murder suspect, 39-year-old Kelley Coan, is in police custody in San Joaquin County. She surrendered after contacting an attorney, according to the Medocino Sheriff's facebook page. The victim's vehicle was in her possession in that county and was recovered.

Coan has been booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on one count of homicide and is being held on a NO BAIL status.

There are many ways for you to communicate with KZYX. One of them is to

attend the upcoming meeting of your Community Advisory Board. It's in at the

Fort Bragg Library on June 7th. A member survey went out with the recent

Board of Directors ballots. We will discuss the many responses, and snacks

will be served. You're encouraged to attend this meeting in the Community

Room of the Fort Bragg Library, 449 East Laurel Street, on Wednesday June

7th, at 6 o'clock.

Thanks for being a public radio listener and supporter! Now more than ever we need strong, local public media. KZYX is your source for the programs you love and the news you need; a blend of quality music, cultural programming, community engagement and news — local, national and international — that you won't find anywhere else.

Welcome to the KZYX tech blog. Here I hope to provide periodic updates on the technical state of the station, inject a bit of humor now and then and maybe answer some of the more commonly asked technical questions. I hope not to be too techno-jargonish and will try to give timelines and links to more information whenever possible. Thanks, Rich Culbertson

Today, I just want to very briefly explain a bit about our signal path and some of the obstacles we face getting KZYX to your radios.

 Sunday's show was hosted by Laytonville High School students. The topic was "Reactions to Drug Education." The hosts were various students who had listened to Ralph Cantor on cannabis/alcohol and the developing brain. What did they learn? Is it important? What do they now know that their parents do not know? Do they consider marijuana use in high school a problem? I found they had interesting insights into drugs in the schools and drug education.    Really worth hearing, and thinking about how important honest drug education in the schools is.

Sherpas are extraordinary human beings.

In the high peaks of the Himalayas, members of the Nepalese ethnic group are famous for their speed-climbing records, ascents of routes that no one has ascended before, expert guiding and other skills.

What makes Sherpas so good at climbing into the wispy atmosphere of the world's tallest mountains?

Nearly every weekend since Inauguration Day, President Trump has flown from Washington to one of his homes outside the capital. Most often he's stayed at Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Fla.

In April, he hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping there for a summit meeting, and in February he invited Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe down for a round of golf.

Trump has also overnighted at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

All the travel means a lot of work for the United States Secret Service, the legendary agency which protects presidents and their families.

When Mexican-American artist Nora Litz first talked with her students about immigration — she was shocked to hear how scared they were.

Receiving a diagnosis in 2017 — at least one made at a medical center outfitted with the latest clinical gadgetry — might include a scan that divides your body into a bread loaf of high-resolution digital slices. Your DNA might be fed through a gene sequencer that spits out your mortal code in a matter of hours. Even your smartphone might soon be used to uncover health problems.
