The Problem Was a Power Supply

We were off the air for a few hours Thursday morning because a power supply failed up at the 90.7 transmitter.  We set up a workaround until we replace the part.  Thanks for your understanding.

According to an an article in the Willits Weekly, Caltrans, September 13 sent 

the Pomo Indians a letter that stated that an archaeological site with Pomo 

cultural resources known to Caltrans has “been destroyed by construction 

activities,” said Tribal Chair Mike Fitzgerral.

“Caltrans has discovered that one of the sites” “is actually located within the ADI [area of direct impact]” of the project. “As you know,” the notice 

continues, “wick drains have been installed in that area and 3 feet of fill has 

been placed.”

According to the tribe’s statement, CA-MEN-3571 was identified by Caltrans in 2011, during archaeological investigations of the area, as part of the bypass;s “area of potential effects,” or APE, but

later, in 2012, Caltrans claimed that changes to the … APE resulted in the site no longer being located in the project footprint.”

“However,” the statement from the tribe continues: “Caltrans has just 

confirmed that the site does indeed exist within the APE and has, over the 

last four months, been severely impacted by the removal of topsoil and the 

installation of 1400-1500 wick drains. What little, if anything, remains of it is now inundated with 3

 feet of fill.”

A September 18 letter to Caltrans from the Advisory Council on Historic 

Preservation, an independent federal agency characterizes this destruction 

as a “major breach of the protection of a historic property that Caltrans 

committed to protect .”

The 700 members of SEIU 1021 are on a one day strike against Mendocino
