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.

Morning News for Monday, December 3rd

As a result of this week’s storms , the Mendocino National Forest is implementing a wet weather closure and encouraging visitors to monitor the weather and check conditions before visiting forest recreation sites.

The Upper Lake Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail system was closed at noon Thursday due to more than 2 inches of accumulated rain in 24 hours saturating the trails. The trails are anticipated to reopen after at least 48 hours of no measurable precipitation.


Convicted murderer Billy Norbury was sentenced Friday to  50 years to life in state prison for killing his Redwood Valley neighbor, Jamal Andrews.

The law gave Judge John Behnke no discretion in the sentencing,  requiring him to impose a sentence of 25 to life for murder consecutive to a sentence of 25 to life for the special allegation that he used a 30-30 Winchester rifle to kill Andrews, 30, on the night of Jan. 24.

Mendocino County District Attorney David Eyster, who prosecuted the case, said Norbury will not be eligible to apply for parole until he has spent 50 years in prison. With the 312 days already spent in jail, that means he would be 83 when he is first eligible to apply to the state parole board.





The Visit Ukiah Task Force met Wednesday and according to program administrator Shannon Riley, the group plans to adopt the new logo and the slogan  "Far out. Nearby."

"We believe the far out' brand captures the essence of Ukiah because it is inclusive of all the assets and particularly the independent or eclectic vibe that is so prevalent in this community," said Riley."


By the end of December, the full campaign, including the website and brochure, will be revealed.




The Lake County Sheriff's Office has requested independent legal counsel as a result of Anthony Farrington seeking documents on behalf of a then-legal client.

Farrington is the District 4 Lake County Supervisor and Lake County Sheriff Frank Rivero alleges a conflict of interest.

A memorandum to County Counsel Anita Grant, states that the Lake County Sheriff's Office is in possession of a subpoena "representing a guy who is alleged to have had more than 800 marijuana plantsWe have been working diligently to eradicate marijuana. As a sitting county supervisor, he controls the purse strings that allow us to go and fight crimes. And then he is an attorney defending the people we are trying to prosecute, therein lies the problem."

Rivero suggested that Farrington step down as a supervisor.

 Farrington responded saying, "I am no longer representing Mr. Brooner, and the change in legal representation has nothing to do with

Sheriff Rivero's pathetic attempt to challenge my integrity. Unfortunately for Sheriff Rivero, he is the only person that has broken the law by not complying with my subpoena request for documents. Sheriff Rivero's violation of state law can subject him to a fine, jail, or a warrant for his arrest. "

On Thursday County counsel Grant responded to the sheriff:

"To credibly allege a conflict which justifies independent legal counsel in the above circumstances is flatly impossible. "
