Here in largely rural Mendocino, is it possible to grow old with grace and dignity in one's own home, especially for those with chronic illnesses? An innovative organization in Humboldt county thinks it has the answer, and it's bringing the model to Mendocino County. On Wednesday 7 February, KZYX Mendocino Works interviewed Dr Michael Fratkin, founder and president of ResolutionCare, a community-based in-home palliative care organization, and Lynn Dress-Meadows, who is working with Dr Fratkin to build the Mendocino Care Network.

What is Mendocino County attempting to achieve with proposed revisions of the Class K "alternative building code", which for four decades has enabled rural homesteaders to build their own safe and affordable dwellings? 

On Wednesday January 24 at 7 p.m., our public affairs program Mendocino Works explored the proposed Class K revisions and their implications for housing with Stephanie Gold of the Anderson Valley Housing Association; independent building code consultant Scott Ward, who as a county official inspected hundreds of Class K and conventional homes; and 5th District Supervisor Dan Hamburg, who sits on the Board of Supervisors' housing subcommittee. You can hear the full hourlong discussion by clicking this link.

Rising waters of the Navarro River, fed by days of rain, spilled onto California Route 128 on Monday, forcing the road's closure between Route 1 on the Mendocino coast and Flynn Creek Road at Navarro, the first closing of the rainy season, Caltrans said.

"Route 128 is closed in Mendocino County near Route 1 due to flooding of the Navarro River," Caltrans reported in social media. "It is unknown at this time when the highway will reopen."

Alternate routes to the Mendocino coast are available via Flynn Creek Road or Philo-Greenwood Road. Motorists are advised to use caution.
