DA David Eyster has placed Dep DA Damon Gardner on unpaid  administrative leave pending police and

 internal investigations into his role in shooting a man during a physical fight in the early morning hours in 

downtown Sacramento Thursday 

Gardner, a seven year veteran of the DA's office, has been on medical leave since mid-August and carries a concealed handgun permit. 

No arrests have been made in the incident which began when DDA Gardner and another Mendocino 

DDA were walking and met another pair of men 

outside a hotel on 15th and L streets near the state 

capitol at 12:24 a.m. and exchanged words that

escalated into a fight.

"We don't know yet to what degree alcohol was a

 factor in the incident," SPD spokesman officer Doug Morse said.

Gardner fired his .38 Ruger once, hitting the other man -- whose identity wasn't released -- in his upper body.

The Sacramento County District Attorney's Office

will determine whether to file charges, and if so, who to charge.

The man who was shot was treated at a Sacramento hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

















According to the National Weather Service, there is a threat of sneaker waves today.

”The danger comes from the fact that the waves can be small for 20 minutes or longer, and then much bigger waves seem to come out of nowhere,” NWS 

spokesman Troy Nicolini said. “The waves are the No. 1 weather killer in this region," according to Nicolini.

Four people were killed by sneaker waves in separate incidents that occurred between last Thanksgiving and January.

In general, the steep beaches found at Big Lagoon, 

Freshwater Lagoon and Stone Lagoon, and the jetties in Humboldt Bay are particularly vulnerable. Flatter 

beaches are safer.

The weather services encourages people to stay

 farther back from the ocean, to never turn their back on the surf, watch children 

closely and never go in the water after dogs.

”Dogs can be pulled into the surf as well, but almost always get out,” Nicolini said. “Sadly, people who go in to rescue dogs almost never get out.”




Despite CalTrans statement October 9th that Bypass work was over for the year as of the 18th, the 

contractors, Desilva Gates and Flatiron construction are now planning to work a few more months. 

Flatiron Construction will continue to drive piles along the viaduct and expects, weather permitting, to finish installing about half the columns and footings 

supporting the new mile long viaduct by Dec. 1. 

Flatiron has also requested a few week permit 

extension from the Regional Water Control Board to allow additional work on structures and footings 

within the creeks. This request is based

on the lack of flow currently in the creeks and an extended dry weather forecast. 

.DeSilva Gates Construction is now expecting to 

install the sub-base material in the southern end of the construction zone, working again weather permitting, until





The Board of Supervisors is meeting Tuesday, 

October 22nd at 10 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Hall on 

Lansing St. in Mendocino for a public hearing on the proposed Mendocino Town Plan re-write. 

Some residents feel that several major issues have been ignored. They include Restoration of the 

Sensitive Coastal Resource Area (SCRA) 

designation for the Town which was approved in 2006, but never implemented. The second neglected issue, they say, is a proposal to phase out Vacation Home Rentals (VHRs) in portions of Town which are zoned Residential.

Thanks to old KZYXer Norman de Vall for this story.

rd also approved, in December 2005, a transfer of 

Production and Programming Equipment. The cities of Ukiah and Willits have similar agreements 

with Adelphi
