Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

On Tuesday, five months after the Lake County Board of Supervisors declared a local emergency in response to a landslide that destroyed homes, board 

members voted to terminate the emergency.

Monday, the 45 home owners affected filed a suit against the county claiming

 that water system leaks caused the landslides.

The board held the vote during an update on the Lakeside Heights subdivision, at which time county officials also discussed options for stabilizing the slide 

area this winter.

The ground movement has slowed to one-tenth of an inch in a six-week period.

Public Works Director Scott De Leon told the board, “With the impending 

winter rain, if things aren't done with this slide, it's going to end up on Hill Road.”

Ideally, De Leon said he hoped to work with the subdivision's homeowners 

association to get the slide area secured against winter weather. He has plastic sheeting he would make available if the association was able to get volunteers to tarp the area. 

Randall Fitzgerald, president of the homeowners association, said , “Every 

single homeowner feels that we are not responsible for the damage that has 

been inflicted on our neighborhood.”



In a three our extraction executed by 50 CHP officers beginning at 8:00 am, two tree sitters, Travis Jochimsen, and a woman calling herself Blue Heron were removed from their  perches at the edge of wetlands. The 50 foot tall ancient oak is the last remaining tree in the path of Caltrans’ 4-lane bypass.     

Former wick drain sitter, Will Parish, who is awaiting trial, , was also arrested at 11:45

am  from private property on the west side of Highway 101 while observing.

CHP closed both lanes of Highway 101 when the tree sit extraction began, backing up traffic for miles in both directions. A group of supporters gathered, holding signs 

opposing the size and scale of the mammoth project. 

Incidentally, the  deadline for a ruling from Federal Judge Geoffrey White is tomorrow. 














Humboldt County Coroner Dave Parris said that the remains found at a 

disheveled Slate Creek campsite have been positively identified as Anna Maria Rodriquez, who was reported as an overdue hiker on Aug. 14. ”There is no 

evidence of foul play,” Parris said.

Parris also said several notes written in Rodriquez’s handwriting were at the 

site where her remains were found.”We’re evaluating the notes now. They 

were very damaged by the weather and they’re very difficult to read,” he said.

Authorities were unable to find any evidence to determine a cause of death.


















A missing 72 year old man who was last seen at 8:15 am Tuesday in Redwood Valley was found thirteen hours later. The man has dementia and Parkinson's disease which placed him at a high risk.

Deputies initiated a call out of the Sheriff's bloodhound "Red", members of the Mendocino County Search and Rescue Unit, and the Redwood Valley Fire 

Department to conduct a more extensive search after the area around his 

house was searched.

Around 9:25 PM searchers located the man, in a vineyard west of his 

residence along the railroad tracks.  He had fallen into some blackberry 

bushes and was unable to get out without assistance.  An ambulance was 

called to evaluate the man for injuries.  He declined to be transported to the 

hospital and was released to family members to return home.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the Redwood Valley Fire Department for their assistance with this call.  







Stay Tuned for Give & Take; @ 9:00 AM

when Michael Kisslinger and his guests Paula Cohen, and Diane Agee, discuss upcoming changes to health care on the coast.
