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.

More than a year after his arrest, federal prosecutors have charged a local biologist Ron LeValleywith 

conspiring to embezzle funds from the Yurok Tribe.

Mad River Biologists founder Ron LeValley is due to make his initial appearance in S. F. federal court 

October 29th on a charge alleging that he conspired with former Yurok Tribe Forestry Director Roland

 Raymond to steal $870,000 from the tribe through a complex scheme of false and inflated invoices and 

payments for work that was never performed.

LeValley and Sean McAllister, one of the company's biologists, were charged by the Del Norte County 

District Attorney's Office with conspiracy and 

embezzlement in February 2012. State charges against the pair were dismissed in January to make way

 for federal prosecutions. McAllister had not been 

charged federally .

Raymond pleaded guilty to a single count of 

conspiring to embezzle from an Indian tribal 

organization and faces a maximum sentence of five 

years in federal prison and a fine of more than $1.5 

million when he is sentenced Nov. 5. He cooperated with the federal investigation targeting LeValley and McAllister.

The scheme allegedly saw LeValley and McAllister 

submit at least 75 false invoices between 2007 and 

2010, billing the Yurok Tribe for  wildlife surveys their company never performed.




















In a contentious meeting Tuesday in the town of 

Mendocino, the county BOARD OF SUPERVISORS approved the Mendocino Town Plan Update. At issue was designation of the town as a “Sensitive Coastal Resource Area” (SCRA) which would have allowed 

whatever is usually designated as a “project” to be appealed to the California Coastal Commission. 

Board Chair Dan Hamburg made a motion (seconded by Fort Bragg Supervisor Dan Gjerde) to approve 

the Town Plan with the controversial SCRA provision.

 The motion failed 2-3 with only Hamburg and Gjerde in favor. The same motion without the SCRA designation then passed on a 4-1 vote, with only Hamburg opposed.

compromise on tourist rentals had been worked out in advance, with Vacation Home Rentals  capped at ten and Single Unit Rentals (a second residential 

unit rented on a short term basis) capped at 20. The Art Center, which had been approved for 19 units in 

the 1992 town plan received approval for their 13 

existing units, plus one they plan to build. 





In a sweeping cultural shift, a majority of Americans now favor legalizing marijuana use, according to a 

Gallup poll released Tuesday. The survey showed 

that 58 percent of 1,028 respondents supported

 legalization, with 39 percent against.

Just three years ago, 50 percent of respondents opposed legalization.

Gallup credited much of the surge to political 

independents, whose support for legalization jumped from 50 percent to 62 percent in less than a year.

Americans older than 65 remain the only age group

 that opposes marijuana legalization, with 53 percent against. 



Uruguay, set to become the first country to legalize 

the sale of marijuana, has established the state price for legal and government-controlled pot at around $1 a gram.

A senate vote to legalize the sale of the drug is 

expected in mid-November.






The Adventist Health organization which operates 

Howard Memorial in Willits and Ukiah Valley medical Center, has applied for 

a full-scale HMO license, believing it could better serve its rural patient base by offering a Medicare Advantage


They determined that a full license would be

 beneficial in three particular counties — Mendocino, 

Tuolumne and Kings — where there is little or no market penetration of Medicare Advantage HMOs.

In Mendocino County, there are roughly 19,300 

Medicare eligible residents.  The effort does not

 include Adventist Health operations in Napa and 

Lake counties.

Adventist Health expects approval for the three 

counties within in the next six months and hopes to

 begin enrollment next October and to  take effect 

Jan. 1, 2015.
