Ukiah Valley Medical Center is one of the four clinics in California which have used the fungal contaminated back pain steroid  linked to 60 cases of meningitis in nine states.

Health officials say the death toll across several states has risen to seven.

The steroid has been recalled, and  A letter went out Friday to all patients at UVMC who received it.


The steroid is known as preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate, which the compounding pharmacy creates by combining a powder with a liquid.

Meningitis is an inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include severe headache, nausea, dizziness and fever.

 Friday, the California Department of Public Health said no cases of meningitis have been reported in the state.  The shots were received by:Cypress Surgery Center in Visalia
         Valley Medical Center in Ukiah
         Outpatient Surgical Center in Encino
          Universal Pain Management in Palmdale



As a result of recent steep price increases in gasoline, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. yesterday directed the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to take emergency steps to increase the state's gasoline supply and bring down fuel prices.


The Governor directed the board to immediately allow oil refineries to make an early transition to winter-blend gasoline. Winter-blend gasoline typically isn't sold until after October 31.


"Gas prices in California have risen to their highest levels ever, with unacceptable cost impacts on consumers and small businesses," said Governor Brown. 


Winter-blend gasoline is a mixture that evaporates more quickly than the gasoline sold in summer months, Allowing an early transition to winter-blend gasoline could increase California's fuel supply by up to an estimated 8-10 percent with only negligible air quality impacts.


Gas prices in California have skyrocketed over the past week due to a tightening of fuel supplies caused by shutdowns at Tesoro and Exxon refineries. The Exxon refinery came back online Friday and Tesoro is scheduled to resume production early next week. Combined, these actions are expected to stabilize and reduce fuel prices..





A series of showers may dampen Sonoma County this week, raising mild concern among grape growers about impacts on the crop during the height of harvest.

Most of the rain will probably be south of the Bay Area, but there's still a decent chance of some light showers in the North Bay, through Thursday.

Although the total rainfall is expected to be low, moisture that lasts throughout the week could damage the crop, growers said.

If you have a little bit and it stays overcast and crummy for a whole week ... Even just the foggy days we had last couple of weeks caused a little bit of bunch rot in some of the vineyards.





A symposium on the Environmental Challenges of Marijuana Agriculture in the Age of Prohibition is being held Friday Oct 12, 2012, 1:00 - 5:00pm at HSU Behavioral and Social Sciences Building, Native Forum Room 162, 16th & Union Street, Arcata

The two-part symposium will gather  Panelists including  staff from several local environmental organizations, a representative from the California Department of Fish and Game, the Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey, Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos and Mark Lovelace, Humboldt County District 3 Supervisor.

The symposium is sponsored by the Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research and the Sociology Department and is free and open to the public. Please contact  HSU at 707-826-3142 for more information
