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.

According to Linda Williams, writing in the Willits News, four of the seven Mendocino residents charged in a Kansas federal court for drug trafficking have pleaded guilty.

By November 2012, there were seven defendants from Mendocino County.

Jeffrey Wall, 42, of Mendocino, pleaded guilty May 6 and Henry "Hank" McCusker, 48, of Mendocino, pleaded guilty May 14 to one count of conspiracy to traffic cocaine and marijuana. Both face a sentence of 10-years-to-life. 

Depending upon the value of their assistance, the U.S. attorney can make a sentencing recommendation to the judge. In mid-March all but 13 of the original 43 defendants had pleaded guilty. Chad Bauman, considered one of the principals in the conspiracy, pleaded guilty in January. His plea terms are sealed by court order. Bauman's guilty plea triggered a surge of guilty pleas from lower level conspirators.


In their continuing effort since 2011 to outsource mental health services in order to avoid pension and benefit obligations, the Mendocino Board of Supervisors Tuesday will consider hiring two contractors to directly provide mental health services for children and adults under county oversight.

Redwood Management Company will receive $8.8 million for children's mental health services and Ortner Management Group (OMG) a $6.7 million contract for adult mental health services.  the contracts would cover the 2013-14 fiscal year "with five additional renewals through 2019.

emergency access would be available at "24/7 Access Centers ... inland and on the coast," ."psychiatric emergency services," would allow a decision to be made by phone about whether to send the client to an access center or to the nearest emergency room."if there is no medical problem and the client can be (handled) without restraint," the client would go to an access center for assessment and triage rather than to an emergency room.

Both contracts define crisis stabilization as "an alternative to higher cost emergency room services and inpatient hospitalizations." 

 a person needing services could show up at "any contracted Mendocino mental health service program" and get help immediately.

In addition, an advisory council made of representatives from the county HHSA, stakeholders,law enforcement, the Supervisors, the  Mental Health Coalition, and county Juvenile Justice/ would meet quarterly .


The Illinois Senate approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes on Friday, sending the measure to the governor’s desk.

the same dayOhio’s attorney general certified a petition for a proposed amendment that would allow marijuana be used for industrial, medical and therapeutic purposes.

If approved, Illinois and Ohio would join 19 states and the District of Columbia that have some variation of a medical marijuana law.

To be prescribed medical marijuana, patients would need to have one of 42 conditions, including cancer and HIV. Patients also would undergo background checks.

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has not indicated whether he will sign the bill.















Popeye the mussel-sniffing dog is returning to Lake Mendocino this summer to inspect watercraft for invasive quagga and zebra mussels.  Boaters will be asked to voluntarily allow Popeye to inspect their watercrafts for the thumb-sized mussels that have infested 26 reservoirs in California, causing millions in damage to water infrastructure and the environment.  If a mussel is found on a boat, the boat will not be allowed to launch and California  Fish and Wildlife will be immediately notified.

The mussels reproduce quickly overtaking a waterway and destroying its natural habitats and fisheries, clog water infrastructure and result in more than $500 millions of dollars in damages.

Popeye will randomly inspect boats between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. At 

Lake Mendocino:  May 26th, July 7th, August 4th and September 1st
