The Northern California crab fishery suffered major economic losses, multi millions of dollars during the  2015-2016 season, when it was closed part of the season due to high levels of the neurotoxin domoic acid detected in crabs.  It was declared a fisheries disaster and federal relief is finally in sight.  However, it might not be enough.  Fisherman Scott Hockett explains. 

The exhibit at the Mendocino County Museum in Willits – Main Street: Then and Now, details a town grown by the timber industry and back-to-landers. It inspired a recent forum focused on shaping the future of Willits, a city with many possibilites.

Caltrans has plans to replace the Albion River Bridge located on the scenic coastline in Mendocino County. It is on the Register of Historic Places and it is the last timber trestle bridge on California’s Highway 1. Many coastal residents are fighting the proposal and are working instead to preserve and restore the bridge.

 

 

Caltrans is hosting an informational meeting on the Albion River Bridge proposal to remove it Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the Albion Elementary school from 6 to 7:30 pm.
