Mendocino County Supervisors will meet at 10 am Tuesday, Aug. 13. at the FB Town Hall to hear the Westport Municipal Advisory Council's (WMAC) 

appeal of the approval of a $750,000 State Parks plan to rip out northern 

remnants of the haul road. 

At two previous meetings about the project, opposition from the public has 

been nearly unanimous. Until the late 1980s, the road provided a hard 

surface for bicycles or walkers all the way from the western end of Ward 

Avenue to Ten Mile Bridge.

State Parks proposes to dig up and truck away 2.7 miles of three remnant 

road pieces, totaling 25,000 cubic yards of asphalt, gravel and road bed. 

That would total about 2,500 dump truck loads being carried across the 

sensitive habitat, under the bridge and out on a road east of the highway.

Many members of the public are pushing State Parks to repair the existing 

road to improve access or perhaps install floating boardwalks. The main 

substance of the appeal by the WMAC is that the haul road is designated as the coastal trail for the area and true access should be brought back.

In 2000, State Parks itself was in favor of just that. Several agencies, such 

as the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, had shot down any such plan based 

on environmental concerns. Such a project would cost millions more than 

the removal.

Opponents say creating a useable trail can be done, but grants available in recent years have favored preservation, not access.


A dead bird found  in Redwood Valley tested positive for the West Nile virus, the first positive case in Mendocino County this season. The total number 

of Calif. counties testing positive for the disease is 33, four cases of human 


For most people the disease is mild with only one in 150 cases deemed 

serious. Serious cases can lead to permanent neurological damage and 

death. Patients over 50 have a higher chance of developing serious 


One in five infections have milder symptoms and about 80 percent of those

 infected don't even know they have it.

Infected birds are considered the main reservoir of the West Nile Virus with most mosquitoes becoming infectious after biting a bird. 














Lake Sheriff Frank Rivero and the city of Lakeport are set to meet Friday at 

the Mendocino Superior Court for the case involving information access to

Lakeport police .

A judge is set to determine whether the sheriff will have to continue restored access to the Lakeport PD (LPD) to the Record Information Management 

System (RiMS), which provides computer-aided dispatch records and local criminal offender record information.

Sheriff Rivero blocked LPD access to RiMS on April 22 on allegations that 

officers were misusing the system.

The LakeDA's Office stated it had not found any violations by the LPD

 regarding RiMS.

Mendocino Superior Court Judge Cindy Mayfield ordered Rivero and the 

LCSO to restore RiMS access to the LPD on July 1. The burden on Friday 

will be on Rivero, who must show cause for denying RiMS access to the 

LPD if he wants to restore the information block.

The trial is set for 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Ukiah County Courthouse, located at 100 North State St.









Stay Tuned to All About Money;  @ 9:00 AM

John Sakowicz and Robert McChesney discuss the buyout of the 

Washington Post by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com.  What does this 

mean for freedom of speech McChesney is a national media expert and 

professor at the University of Illinois. Jim Sweeney, Assistant Editorial 

Director of The Press Democrat will also join the show.
