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.

In what could be a precedent-setting case, Mendocino Superior Court Judge Ann Moorman will rule next week on whether a Ukiah woman accused of driving drunk through her 

neighbors' fence and into their house should also face a felony charge of 

assault with a deadly weapon.

During a daylong preliminary hearing TuesdayMoorman said she would

 need to review cases cited by both the prosecution and defense before

 ruling on the felony assault charge.

Prosecuting attorney Matt Hubley upped the otherwise misdemeanor DUI 

case to the felony level with the assault charge on the premise that Rainville has had at least two prior DUI convictions since 2005, and had been advised during court proceedings that driving under the influence is dangerous to human life. That knowledge, he said, supports a charge of assault, which is the intent to commit battery.

The judge and both attorneys acknowledged that there were no known cases on record where a DUI case became an assault-with-a-deadly-weapon case on that premise.

Rainville's blood-alcohol level about an hour after the accident was 0.25, more than three times the legal limit and in other DUI's, her blood-alcohol levels had been 0.36 for one incident and 0.29 for the other.

Moorman will render her decision on the assault charge and the other charges against Rainville Aug. 13.




A California appellate court has affirmed a Humboldt Superior Court judge's ruling that essentially says that police officers can use their discretion in 

determining if there is probable cause to believe a pot grow falls outside the bounds of state medical marijuana laws. If they do suspect a grow or a 

possessed amount of processed marijuana is illegal, the officers can 

destroy it, and, even if the officers are wrong, you won't be compensated for the uprooted crop.

In 2008 Roscoe Littlefield, three of his family and Jeffrey Libertini were

 growing about 200 marijuana plants at two garden sites. The gardens had medical four marijuana recommendations posted, and allowed the usage of up to two ounces of marijuana a day.

When the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office busted the grow , they estimated that the plants would yield about 1,500 pounds.

Lt. Wayne Hanson gave the go ahead to cut the garden down. Most of the marijuana was destroyed, except a small amount for evidence.

When no arrests followed the raid, the Littlefields sued the county, seeking between $683,724 and $1.3 million for pain and suffering and the 

replacement value of their destroyed marijuana.

When Humboldt Judge Christopher Wilson heard the case and threw out the Littlefields' case, they filed an appeal and the appellant court sided with 

Wilson,. Specifically, the court found that officers can consider the presence of firearms at the grow, the size of the grow and the nature of patient

 recommendations posted when deciding whether they think a grow may be illegal.



The deadline for placing a recall measure on the Nov. 5 ballot against Lake County Sheriff Frank Rivero came and went Tuesday without enough 

signatures. But If sufficient signatures are gathered by Aug. 15, a special 

election would be held in about three to five months. While the recall group had hoped to avoid a special election, it will be worth the $90,000 cost to

 get rid of Rivero, they said. 




Antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan plans to run next year for California 

governor on the Peace and Freedom Party platform.

Sheehan is expected to announce her candidacy "probably in a couple of 


The Peace and Freedom Party website quoted Sheehan as saying she 

wants to run "primarily because I believe that California should be leading

 the nation in peace, education, health care, sustainable/renewable energy and democracy."
