Morning News for Wednesday, April 10th
John Sakowisc reports for KZYX News that yesterday's Board of Supervisors special meeting featured a county star studded panel of presenters, including Stacy Cryer, head of Human Services, Carmel; Angelo, County CEO and representatives of several state organizations. The county has decided to join the state combine for healthcare, instead of starting their own, because of risk factors.
Mendocino College has added an additional 177 course sections to the Summer Schedule an increase of almost double over last year.
Thanks to Proposition 30, the College is restoring courses cut due to budget reductions. “College staff have specifically focused on adding the courses needed by students to transfer to a four-year university, to complete degrees or certificates at Mendocino College ,” stated Virginia Guleff, Vice President Education.
Courses have been added in English, math, science, social science, physical education, welding, dance, art, music, sustainable technology and business. In addition, a Native American Bridge program and Summer Math Institute are planned. The complete summer schedule is online .
Many of the additional classes will be offered in the afternoon, evening, online and at the new Lake Center Campus in Lakeport.
Students should begin planning now since certain course sections fill quickly. Students can complete their application online at www.mendocino.edu.
Open registration for all students begins April 23.

Today is Equal Pay Day, the point at which a woman's average pay would catch up to what a man made last year. A new report is a reminder that the wage gap between sexes persists, even in states such as California with a higher minimum wage. It says California women earn 85-cents per hour for every dollar paid to men, a gap of almost 75-hundred dollars a year for a full-time worker. Sarah Crawford with the National Partnership for Women and Families says not much has changed since last year's Equal Pay Day.
