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.

Open fires, including grills, campfires, and even cigarettes smoked outside of vehicles, will be banned in much of the Mendocino National Forest starting Tuesday because of dry conditions and the threat of wildfires.

The only exceptions will be in certain designated recreational areas, including the following facilities in Mendocino County’s Covelo Ranger District: Eel River, Little Doe, Howard Lake, Howard Meadows, Atchison, Green Springs and Hammerhorn Lake Campgrounds.

Violations of the burn ban can result in fines of up to $5,000 per person and up to six months in jail.

For more information, call (530)934-3316,















Last week, the Mendocino Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to stop work on the PACE program which would have allowed property owners to purchase energy efficient and energy saving appliances through loans that would be repaid as additions on their property taxes. The measure was opposed by a national bankers group and several local banks.

Despite the defeat, Keith Rutledge  of the Renewable Energy Development Institute (REDI) Willits is circulating a petition to ask  the Board of Supervisors to reconsider developing the Clean Energy Assessment financing program for Mendocino County online at chn.ge/11DpArX 




















A former police officer and Lake County Sheriff's deputy is now facing charges in a local case for allegedly trafficking in prescription drugs.

Eric Van Mendonca, 43, was arrested by sheriff's deputies at his Middletown home Monday.

Mendonca is facing 16 felony counts for possession for sale, of  hydrocodone on seven dates in November through February of this year.

The investigation, conducted by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, found that Mendonca had managed to accumulate 17,540 narcotic  painpills by shopping doctors.

Each of the 16 felony charges carries sentences ranging between 16 months and four years if Mendonca is convicted.

Mendonca was booked into the Lake County Jail, with bail was set at $275,000. He posted bail and was released the same day.

No court date has yet been set for Mendonca .













The Sonoma  Water Agency on Monday, began inflating its rubber dam on the Russian River near Forestville, CA.  The rubber dam is a critical component of the Russian River water supply system that provides naturally filtered drinking water to more than 600,000 residents in portions of Sonoma and Marin counties.  The rubber dam will remain inflated through summer and into the fall. 

The rubber dam will be inflated slowly to maintain flows downstream, and may take around two weeks to be fully inflated. 

 When fully inflated, the rubber dam creates a small pool of water from which the Water Agency draws water for use in four off-stream infiltration ponds.  The infiltration ponds help recharge groundwater which is then naturally filtered through sand and gravel and delivered to the Water Agency’s customers.  

Permanent fish ladders provide fish passage around the rubber dam when it is inflated. 

Boaters must portage around the rubber dam downstream of Wohler Bridge. 





The Target store chain has announced they will be adding a new brand to their shelves Called Simply Balanced, that will phase out all genetically modified ingredients by the end of 2014.

According to a press release, the initial roll-out will include a selection of foods that are 40% organic and the majority of them will not contain GMOs. 


The First Annual KNYO Bar B  Q will be held on Sat. June 22nd from 1-9 PM at the KNYO Fallout Shelter at 325 N. Franklin St. in downtown Fort Bragg. They'll have a jam session, bar b q and vegan food, beer and refreshments.
