Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

 Humboldt County officials are warning dog owners about a recent outbreak of the highly contagious canine parvovirus (parvo) in the Garberville-Redway area, and are encouraging people to take preventive measures to ensure the health of their pets.

”The best way to protect your puppies and adult dogs is through vaccination,” “Parvo vaccination and testing are available at all local veterinary hospitals.” Parvo is a serious and potentially fatal disease caused by a virus that attacks the gastrointestinal tract of puppies and dogs. Parvo is transmitted by direct dog-to-dog contact and is very easily spread through contact with contaminated feces and vomit, environments or people and it can also live in the soil for quite some time.”

Concern has grown over the past few months as the number of cases in Southern Humboldt has escalated since May, when the outbreak began.


Mendocino County Clerk Sue Ranochak said her office began handing out same sex marriage licenses Monday last week, after receiving instructions from California Public Health. One couple took immediate advantage of the change but that there had not been a rush to the altar.

Ranochak speculated the lack of a rush may have been due to the record high temperatures in the area. Ranochak estimates the number of Mendocino County couples who got married during the brief time it was allowed in 2008 at about 50.

 Three men suspected of being involved in a home invasion robbery in Hopland and a high-speed chase ending in Healdsburg were arrested late Friday night and early Saturday morning by Sonoma Sheriff's deputies. All were all turned over to the Mendocino Sheriff's Department, which released no information about the case. The men were suspected of taking part in a robbery involving guns and drugs at a Hopland home.

 Ukiah City Councilwoman Mari Rodin has resigned, effective Aug. 16, to work for Monterey County’s Local Agency Formation Commission, which is charged with overseeing land use-related issues. Rodin said she did not want to leave Ukiah after 22 years but had been unsuccessful in finding engaging, full-time work in Mendocino County.

In addition to 11 years on the City Council, Rodin has been self employed as a grant writer. She currently serves on Mendocino County’s Local Agency Formation Commission. The Council has yet to decide whether to appoint a replacement or wait for an election, said Councilman Benj Thomas. Rodin’s term does not expire until 2016.

A woman who was the focus of a search on Thursday was found dead . The body of Julie Diehl, 44, was found in a field near Moose Trail near Clearlake.

Because of the extremely hot temperatures the Clearlake area had been experiencing, Clearlake PD contacted Lake Fire Station 70 to assist in conducting a search of the area where Diehl was last seen. Lake County Fire reached a Cal Fire helicopter from the Boggs Helitack Station on Cobb Mountain that was returning from a fire in another area and it rerouted to this incident,.

Within seven minutes of arriving in the area, the Cal Fire helicopter located Diehl in the field approximately two hundred yards from Moose Trail. There was no indication of foul play but an investigation is continuing into the circumstances related to her death and disappearance.

Diehl's death may have been exposure related, but an autopsy is pending to confirm the cause.

Anyone with information regarding this case should call Det. Ryan Peterson at 707-994-8251, Extension 320.
