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 Rotary of Mendocino & the Mendocino Land Trust are collaborating to create "Rotary Park' in the green space with towering eucalyptus on the corner of Lansing and Main. Used as a passage between the two thoroughfares, this double lot has been empty for the better part of a decade.

The Rotary Club of Mendocino learned that  that two developer bids were currently on the table with the owner, Lantzman Investments. Mendocino Land Trust agreed to assist in protecting 44961 Main St. from development. 

Working together, Rotary and the Land Trust have signed purchase documents that provide at least one year to raise the funds necessary to make "Rotary Park" a reality.

The settlement won in Nez Perce Tribe, et al. v. Salazar was finalized on January 4 in the US District Court for the District of Columbia. 

The per capita distribution plan includes the following: $4,500 for all members 60 years old or older, $3,500 for all 18 to less than 60 , and $1,000 for all  below the age of 18, to be held in an irrevocable Trust.
