The Mendocino County Department of Transportation has scheduled major repairs to a retaining wall on the Philo-Greenwood Road, or County Road 132, at MP .96. The road will be closed from MP .10 to MP 1.8, starting on September 18, 2017, and ending October 10. The road was briefly closed by landslides and toppled trees during heavy rains in February.

Mendocino County Public Broadcasting celebrated Monday's partial solar eclipse with safety and style at the KZYX studio in Philo. Programmer Beth Lang, who hosts World Tour on alternate Thursday afternoons and also produces the KZYX Community Calendar, gave everyone at the station a safe viewing experience by bringing eclipse glasses and a kitchen colander, which cast a lovely array of eclipse-shaped shadows on the hood of her car. 

No retinas were damaged in the festivities!

Pedersen describes how he and Struett are re-inventing the business to their own vision under its original name, Ukiah Brewing Company.
