So far we've raised over $22,100 during our QUIET DRIVE! Our goal for June is $75,000. We've knocked about 2 1/2 days off of the drive so far. Let's do it! Some stations who produce QUIET DRIVES have been able to eliminate an entire on air membership drive by about the 3rd attempt. We are well on our way. Let's try to slide into summer with as little show interruption as possible, this year and in the future.

NWedam103013Humboldt County is developing an 

outdoor medical marijuana cultivation ordinance that will prohibit grows on parcels that are smaller than a half-acre.

Described at the Oct. 22 HumCo supervisors

meeting, the proposed ordinance will allow no more 

than five mature plants on parcels ranging from a half-acre to five acres. It sets a maximum 50-square-feet plant canopy area, a 20-foot setback from neighboring residences and a 600-foot setback from schools, school bus stops, parks, 

religious places and Native American cultural sites.

The proposal has emerged almost two years after the county adopted an indoor growing ordinance. The 

latest proposal seeks to set up a civil enforcement 

structure in response to complaints about the impacts — primarily related to aroma — of outdoor grows.

If approved by the planning commission, it will be a 

complaint-driven, civil code enforcement process.

Board Chairman Ryan Sundberg has repeatedly said that in Willow Creek, residents there have been 

continually complaining about the dank fragrance of 

fresh-growing buds during the summer and early fall 


The board unanimously voted to authorize 

development of an ordinance amendment based on 

the proposal.






Gov. Jerry Brown and governors of seven other 

states Tuesday announcean initiative that aims to 

put 3.3 million zero-emission vehicles on the road within a dozen years 

which dovetails with California’s goal of putting 1.5 

million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025.

The initiative takes the form of a memorandum 

signed by the governors of California, Connecticut, 

Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont. These states comprise nearly 25 percent of the U.S. vehicle market.

The agreement spells out cooperative measures 

promoting zero-emission vehicles which include battery-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles. Increasing the number of EV 

charging stations is a major component of the agreement.

The announcement was made in Sacramento, with 

officials of the states in attendance along with 

representatives of the American Lung Association 

and Consumer Federation of America. 

There are currently 16 zero-emission vehicle models available from eight auto


Brown recently signed AB which. It extends, until 2024, existing fees on motor vehicles, boat registrations and new tires which provides funding for at least 100 hydrogen stations with a commitment of up to $20 

million a year .




Political groups with ties to the conservative Koch

 brothers acknowledged Thursday they gave about 

$15 million to block a tax increase and weaken union influence in California last year without properly 

reporting the source of the money.

In a settlement with the state Fair Political Practices Commission, the groups agreed to pay a $1 million 

fine, the largest the agency has ever levied for a

campaign violation.

The Arizona-based groups, the Center to Protect Patient Rights 

and Ame ricans for Responsible Leadership, are part of a network of nonprofits operated by Charles and David Koch who used their groups, which aren’t \required to reveal the names of donors, to fund a \variety of pro-business and anti-union efforts.  

A Koch representative denied that the brothers 

played a role in the California election.

Americans for Responsible Leadership gave $11 

million, but it didn’t reveal that its money came from 

the Center to Protect Patient Rights until the FPPC

 brought the group to court. 

Representatives for the two Arizona groups said they simply made a reporting mistake.

document released by the FPPC shows that all but six of 132 contributions came from California donors, including more than $9 million from people with an 

address on Maritime Plaza in San Francisco, where the management company of the Fisher family, which owns Gap Inc., has its office.  Another $500,000

came from a man named Eli, last name redacted, \whose address is on the 12th floor of a building on Wilshire Boulevard in LA where Developer Eli \Broad’s foundation has its office on the 12th floor.

The list also shows $800,000 from Ventura County 

businessman Gene Haas, who served 16 months in a halfway house in 2008 and 2009 for conspiracy to 

commit tax evasion. Another $2 million came from 

financial services titan Charles Schwab.







The HazMobile household hazardous waste 

collection team returns to Fort Bragg Disposal, 

219 Pudding Creek Road, on Friday and 

Saturday, November 1 & 2, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The HazMobile visits Fort Bragg on the

first Friday Saturday of every month unless it is a holiday 


 Dangerous chemicals that can’t go in the trash are accepted by the HazMobile for recycling or 

special disposal. 

            The HazMobile is free to households but there is a limit of 15 gallons per vehicle per day
