A 72-year-old hunter survived 18 days in the Mendocino 

National Forest by eating squirrels, lizards, a snake 

and berries before being found by other hunters in 

the Yuki Wilderness who made a stretcher out of their jackets and poles and carried him up the hill. They 

called 911 who got their GPS coordinates and notified a second full rescue attempt that was in force nearby, led by the Mendocino Sheriff's Office with assistance from Marin, Lake, Bay Area Mountain Rescue

California Rescue Dog Association, Monterey county and US Forest Service Law Enforcement. 

A four day search for Gene Pendaflor Sept 26 had to be called off because of rain with no 

clues to his location.

The terrain in the area is so difficult to navigate that it's classified as "types one and two,"  "very steep, rocky and treacherous," and as being prone to runoffs.

After Penaflor fell and lost consciousness, he woke to find fog surrounding him and a cut on his chin, and, he opted to stay near a water source. He built a fire 

and set up a makeshift shelter of leaves underneath 

and above him for warmth. When he saw a helicopter.he put damp leaves on his fire to send a smoke signal, but the helicopter's crew didn't see him. He later

told his friends and family that he didn't have enough energy to hike back up."

He survived by conserving what food he could kill 

and cook, keeping his nighttime fire's embers hot 

under leaves during the day, conserving bullets and staying hydrated.

The medical staff at UVMC reported Penaflor's vital signs were good, according to his son, Jeremy.












Tuesday, the Fort Bragg City Council will discuss a 

potential polystyrene ban within city limits. Staff will 

provide a report and recommendation from the 

Public Works committee. 

Like plastic bags, these containers are easily carried by wind and water and, because the material is not

biodegradable, the material can result in visual blight as well as impacts on human health and the 

environment," say staff reports. "In California, 70 

jurisdictions have enacted ordinances banning 

polystyrene foam restaurant takeout ware. 

Biodegradable alternatives are readily available and many restaurants, fast-food outlets, coffee houses, and markets have 

voluntarily replaced polystyrene takeout ware with 

paper alternatives."








At Noon, Tuesday, Mendocino Mental Health 

Services is holding a Community Planning Meeting in Fort 

Bragg at the Mendocino Coast Hospitality Center, 474 South Franklin Street. Members of the public are 

encouraged to attend the meeting to provide 

suggestions, ideas and feedback on a possible 

Innovative Mental Health program to meet the needs 

for the whole County. 
















California water quality regulators will soon begin

 inspecting illegal marijuana growing operations in

 the Central Valley and Sierra Nevada, reversing an 

earlier ban intended to protect employees.

The Central Valley Water Board directed staff to begin cooperating with other agencies to inspect marijuana grows, which have emerged as a major source of 

environmental damage in many rural counties.

The board and its staff are charged with protecting 

streams and groundwater in the state’s vast interior, 

encompassing 37 counties and 40 percent of 

California’s land area. 

In addition to conducting inspections during law 

enforcement visits to marijuana farms, the water 

board will lay down civil penalties against property 

owners who break pollution laws.

In other words, marijuana growers for the first time will be treated just like other farmers that pollute water 

and habitats. 

Some growers welcome additional state involvement as another step to legitimacy, said Robert MacKenzie, attorney for the Western Plant Science Association, a Chico based group that supports medical marijuana growers.
