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.

A victim in last week's double suspicious  death in Fort Bragg has been identified.

Mendocino Sheriff's deputies arrived at the 31000 block of Highway 20, Fort

Bragg,  they located a mini-van parked near the area of the "bark 

dump" parked so it could not be seen 

from Highway 20.

Deputies discovered a deceased female

 in the front driver seat and a deceased male in the front passenger seat. Both 

victims appeared to have suffered 

wounds to the head. 

On Saturday Sheriff's Detectives identified the female victim as being Cindy Bao 

Feng Chen 38 from San Francisco.

Sheriff's Detectives are still attempting to identify the male victim and the case is 

still being actively investigated.

Anyone with information is asked to 

contact the Sheriff's "tip line" at (707) 


Caltrans is working with the Sherwood 

Valley Rancheria of Pomo Indians to 

determine what remedies it might offer

 the tribe after the Willits Bypass project severely impacted an archeological site

of cultural importance.

Caltrans spokesman Phil Frisbie said

 “There are things we might be able to do in other areas to help the tribe.”

Work crews removed several inches of 

topsoil before installing wick drains. After the drains were installed, Frisbie said 

Caltrans crews filled the area with about 3 feet of dirt.

However, according to an article from the Archeological Institute of America, The

 site has lost much of its archeological

 significance because the context in

 which an item is found is as educational -- if not more -- than the item itself. Archeologists are 

trained to examine the soil around 

artifacts, as well as the way the soil and

 the artifacts are layered, all of which 

hold clues to the specific environments in which the items were used.

Frisbie said Caltrans has no intention of changing the project's footprint, meaning -- damaged or not -- a portion of the archaeological site will be

 left under the bypass, greatly complicating any future excavation.

Thanks to Thadeus Greenson of the Times Standard for this story


The Mendocino Board of Supervisors 

meeting Tuesday at 10 am at St 

Anthony's hall in Mendocino, in addition

 to dealing with the Mendocino Town Plan update, will have its hands full dealing 

with a new agreement for Mendocino 

Access Television, approving funding for Ford Street & Mendocino Coast 

Hospitality Center to provide Transitional housing for county homeless, as well

 funding Ford Street's Live-In  Vocational Rehabilitation and  Substance Abuse ProgramThey will also be authorizing a one day Dog  license amnesty November 23rd.  



A Rodeo man died Thursday when he was shot while hunting in the Mendocino 

National Forest.

Edgardo A. Godoy, 52, was hunting near Covelo when another hunter shot and 

mortally wounded him.

Upon arrival sheriff's personnel learned 

that a member of a hunting party saw a

 wild pig approximately 70 yards uphill and across a ravine from his location. Not

 seeing Godoy, the hunter shot at the pig.

When the hunter went to the area where he last saw the wild pig, he located 

Godoy, who had suffered a single gunshot wound.

The witness – whose name is being withheld  – immediately rendered aid to Godoy and called for help on his handheld radio. 

Godoy was moved to the M1 Road for 

first aid where a CalStar medical team 

arrived which pronounced him dead.






Tuesday  at 1:00PM CAL FIRE 

Mendocino will be conducting a 

vegetation control burn on privately-owned land on the Shamrock Ranch in 

the northern portion of Mendocino County.

The primary goal of this prescribed burn

 is to reintroduce fire as a natural 

element of the ecosystem. Another goal 

is to improve wildlife habitat by inducing new shoots from sprouting species to

 increase forage production, with islands of unburned fuel left within burn units to

 provide shelter for small mammals.  A 

third goal is to reduce overall fuel loading to decrease the chance of catastrophic wildfires in the future.  This burn will be 

conducted under strictly controlled 

weather and fuel conditions.
