News Director

Sheri is the current news director at KZYX. Sheri has an impressive C.V. and comes to KZYX from Utah where she was an award winning journalist and reporter.

Sheri proved her talents to the KZYX listeners during the important extensive coverage of the fires in Lake county. Her reporting on local elections and the growing concern over changes in the local cannabis industry has won her praises from all over Northern California. 

In one of the latest developments of cannabis news in Mendocino County, the Ukiah City Council Wednesday night unanimously voted to adopt an ordinance to allow the regulation of medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits. During public comment, semi-retired physician Dr. Robert Werra discussed a petition he said was signed by more than 40 local physicians who are opposed to a dispensary in the city.  Over the past few months, public hearings have been held on the issue and many local citizens have expressed both opposition and support of a regulated cannabis dispensary in Ukiah. 

The cities of Willits, Ukiah and Fort Bragg in Mendocino County are currently working out their own cannabis regulations in the face of state legalization of recreational marijuana, Proposition 64. One of the most recent developments in the local cannabis scene is in the city of Fort Bragg. The city moved towards allowing cannabis manufacturing at their city council meeting on Monday, February 13. 


The California Department of Public Health has advised consumers not to eat recreationally harvested mussels, clams or whole scallops from Mendocino County. Dangerous levels of toxins have been detected in mussels from this region. The naturally occurring poisonous toxins can cause illness or death in humans, and cooking does not destroy the toxins. 

The latest from the KZYX News: 

- Calpella Elementary School bomb threat on Tuesday was cleared 

- Dams in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties are in good condition

- Recreational shellfish from Mendocino County contains toxin and should not be eaten

- The consideration of regulating edible cannabis in California
