A week after Lake County declared a local emergency, the Board of Supervisors gave Special Districts Administrator Mark Dellinger the go-ahead to waive the formal bidding process to hire a civil sanitary engineer to come up with a design for moving the damaged infrastructure at Lakeside Heights where sinking ground has destroyed several homes.


The board also approved a transfer $350,000 from a county fund for an emergency loan to help cover the work.


Time is of the essence in the situation. “The movement hasn’t stopped,” Dellinger said. “It continues to move.”


Dellinger told the board that a sewer bypass will remain in place until they can implement a longterm solution. He said he was “pretty desperate” to get engineering services under contract so they could start looking at how to relocate the water and sewer infrastructure


The county is pursuing funding through the California Department of Public Health and the California Emergency Management Agency – thanks to help from the local Office of Emergency Services – to assist with moving the water and sewer infrastructure at Lakeside Heights, Dellinger said.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, the Mendocino BOS met and KZYX's John Sako was there:  audio sako A


Because April is child abuse awareness month, The Supervisors also received a presentation by Tapestry Family Services and mendocino First 5, and others that contained some startling Facts: audio Sako B


This huge increase in child abuse they said was linked directltly to alcohol and substance abuse.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After representatives of Save Our Little Lake Valley (SOLLV) requested a meeting with Caltrans Bypass Project Manager, Geoffrey Wright, and were ignored - despite repeated inquiries-, a group of 75 protesters marched to the CalTrans HQ in Willits Wednesday morning at 10 am. SOLLV had told Wright to expect them. However, when four representatives - including Willits City Council member Madge Strong - came to the door they found locked and a sign that said "Closed."

Two people remained behind on the doorstep vowing to remain there.



 

 

 

A Davis man lost for a week in the Lake County wilderness after a car accident apparently survived by eating pine nuts.


 

Daniel Thompson, 25, had set out on a solo camping trip when he lost control of his car when it skidded and went down an embankment, and Thompson didn't have cellphone service to call for help.


 

Thompson's advice for campers:"Learn edible plants in your area, because when you find youself lostrunoff and pine nuts make a (lousy) diet."
