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.

Morning News for Wednesday, February 27th

After a high speed chase, where the passenger fired a handgun at a Mendocino Sheriff's Deputy's car, police are seeking  Christopher Skaggs,30, from Redwood Valley, and Walter Miller (33-,Ukiah,) as persons of interest in this incident.

The public should consider them to be possibly armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Skaggs and Miller are urged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 463-4086 or the Tip-Line at 234-2100.







About 30 Protesters against the Willits bypass yesterday stopped Caltrans subcontractors from building a fence — and bulldozing a path through the brush — at a site on East Hill Rd north of Warbler's tree sit . 

Protesters discovered several bird nests in the brush Caltrans had already cleared, and sat in the path of the bulldozer.

CHP OFFICERS were told by protesters they wanted to talk to California Fish & Wildlife. 

A biologist from SHN Consulting, which had done a bird survey in January, came to look at the nests, along with an environmental compliance officer from Caltrans. Both handled and moved the two still intact nests, breaking one of them. When Fish & Wildlife Warden Rusty Boccaleoni arrived, he was also told that witnesses had seen birds flying from the tree.

Caltrans’ compliance officer told the game warden that it appeared to be an old nest.

BOCCALEONI eventually told protesters that JoAnn Dunn, a staff environmental scientist for Fish & Wildlifwould be coming to the  site to look things over.

Dunn later told protesters that Fish & Wildlife would be returning to do a more complete survey, which would take a few days. 

Naomi Wagner provides an update for Tuesday when two protesters once again stopped CalTrans construction.


The Ukiah Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Wednesday on the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed Costco store at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 300 Seminary Avenue.

According to the staff report, David Babcock and Associates applied  for the construction of a Costco warehouse store and fuel station at the south end of Airport Park Boulevard on 15.33 acres, located between the Ken Fowler Auto Center and the southern end of Airport Park Blvd.

The warehouse store would be a maximum of 148,000 square feet and include a bakery, pharmacy, optical center, food court and tire center. The tire center is 5,692-square-foot, building that includes a tire installation facility.

The EIR identified The Significant and Unavoidable impacts, those which "cannot be eliminated or reduced to a less than significant level," as "air quality, transportation and traffic and global climate change."





This Thursday, the Ocean Protection Coalition invites the public to a discussion of the proposed expansion of the Gulf of the Farallones/Cordell Bank Marine Sanctuary, at 7 p.m. February 28 at the Fort Bragg 

Library Community Meeting Room, 499 E. Laurel St.  

We will finalize our letter of recommendation for submission the following day, March 1st.

The Marine Sanctuary expansion offers permanent protection from offshore oil drilling and other polluting activities to just north of Point Arena. For information, contact David Gurney at 961-1339.
