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.

THE 11-ACRE SITE on West Perkins, Ukiah, that the North 

Coast Railroad Authority hopes to sell to the state for a new Mendocino County courthouse, is being 

cleansed of its contaminated soil. Mike Haskins of 

L.D. Giacomini Enterprises is supervising the clean-up. The work is being paid for out of redevelopment 

funds routed through the City of Ukiah. Three 

adjacent parcels fronting Leslie Street but privately 

owned will also be cleared off for what’s on course to becoming a new glass and steel courthouse 

designed for the exclusive use of Mendocino 

County’s nine judges.

Last Friday, Public Health Officials reported that one 

adult from the Willits area is hospitalized with a 

confirmed diagnosis of meningitits. 

Public Health nurses have contacted those persons

 thought to be in close contact with the individual and have provided them with information on symptoms. 

Persons who have had close contact with this 

individual are being treated with antibiotics which 

significantly reduce the risk of becoming ill.

Meningococcemia is caused by a bacteria that

 frequently lives in a person's upper respiratory tract 

without causing visible signs of illness and is usually 

spread through close contact.  However, it is unlikely to be passed through the handling of objects.

 The incubation period of meningococcemia lasts 

from 2-10 days. The disease occurs mainly in children, but may also occur among adults, especially those in 

overcrowded spaces. Symptoms include irritability, 

fever, headache, sensitivity to light, altered 

consciousness and rash with red or purple spots on 

the abdomen and extremities. 

A pre-exposure bacterial meningitis vaccine is available for persons from 11 years to 55 years of age.Contact 

Public Health at 472-2600.


Public Health Services extend thanks to Howard 

Hospital and Baechtel Creek Clinic for their quick 

response to this case:







The City of Ukiah was awarded a $1 million grant that will help upgrade an apartment complex for low-income seniors on Waugh Lane.

According to the city, $550,000 of the grant will be 

used to make health and safety repairs to Creekside Village Apartments, a 43-unit complex for low-income seniors at 751 Waugh Lane.

The 30-year-old apartment complex needs "kitchen and bathroom repairs, roofing repairs, exterior painting, paving and site drainage and irrigation improvements."

The grant will also fund "a sewer lateral replacement grant program for very low-income families and seniors; and a single-family housing rehabilitation loan program for 

households with incomes less than 80 percent of 

Area Median Income."

"This is a program to reimburse the costs for the

 sewer lateral, from the main to the house, and a

typical repair could run anywhere from $3,000 to 

$7,500," said Assistant City Manager Sage 

Sangiacomo. "We hope to be able to complete about 50 repairs."









A large mural that hung in the lobby of the former 

Ukiah Post Office on North Oak Street has been 

restored and will hopefully be returning to Ukiah soon.

The Works Progress Administration mural, painted in 1936, was taken off its wall after the post office closed 

in January of 2012 and brought to Chicago, where it

 underwent a "thorough restoration" and is now in 


USPS Spokesman James Wigdel said  "Once we find a location, the postal service will be bringing it to the community and having it installed. It's a beautiful 

mural, with a lot of historical value."

Rep. Jared Huffman's local representative Heidi 

Dickerson told Wigdel that two locations have been 

offered: Ukiah's Civic Center and the County 

Administration Building.

Wigdel said the next step will be to have both locations send a proposal that includes photographs of both 

the inside and the outside of the buildings and a brief summary as to how the mural would fit their building," Wigdel said.

Thanks to Justine Frederiksen and the UDJ for that
