The Mendocino Sheriff's Office is searching for a missing 75 year old Ukiah woman who may think she is driving to Texas.


The missing person’s son told the Sheriff that his mother, Elna Koopman, was missing and  suffering from the early stages of dementia.  


 

After not hearing from his mother for 24 hours, the son drove from Santa Rosa and found that her White 2004 Toyota "Sienna" van with California license plate of 5HGN279 was gone.


Deputies learned that Koopman also had a residence in the Dallas, Texas area and her son fears that she may be confused and attempt to drive to Texas thinking she still lives there.


Koopman is a 75-year-old female with brown/gray hair, blue eyes approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds.


 

On the 65th day of her tree sitting protest, Warbler, Amanda Senseman, was removed from her 55 foot high perch by a extractor riding a Dominator cherry picker about 7 am Tuesday. She was not injured in the process, was checked for injuries at a medical facility, arrested and sent to the Mendocino County Jail. This was also the fifth day of her hunger fast.


Another two treesitters, Celsius and Caspian were extracted as well. An eyewitness, Matt Callaghan, said that he heard six or eight shots fired and one of the treesitters was hit in both legs and the groin by rubber bullets while still in the tree. 

Caltrans crews also cut down the large Ponderosa Pine tree Warbler has been living in. Sara Grusky and Will Parrish were also arrested. 



 

 

 

 

A Napa County man alleged to be responsible for a series of bank robberies around the North Bay and Lake County has been arrested along with his alleged accomplice, Jack Dennis, 20, of Napa in Novato Thursday.

Joshua J Metoxen, 23, was identified earlier this month as the suspect in two bank robberies in Middletown.


After a US Bank inside a Safeway was robbed, a responding Novato Police detective located a champagne colored Honda Accord identified as the get-away vehicle leaving the area and conducted a high-risk traffic stop.

A $750,000 warrant was issued for his arrest shortly after he was identified as the suspect. Law enforcement officials also believed Metoxen may have been responsible for bank robberies in Mill Valley, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park and Novato.

The decision on how to proceed with the prosecution will be based on input the FBI gives the Marin County District Attorney’s Office, since bank robbery is a federal crime.

Metoxen is being held in the Marin County Jail on charges of felony robbery, burglary, and attempted robbery, with bail set at $1 million.


 

 



There will be a public meeting On the J Road Timber Harvest Plan THURSDAY APRIL 11, at  7 PM at  NEW ALBION SCHOOL 30500 Albion Ridge Rd. 3.5 Mile Marker.


 Mendocino Redwood Company has submitted a Timber Harvest Plan on 586 acres in the lower Albion River. Representatives from MRC will be in attendance and community members will have opportunity to ask questions and express concerns. For more Information, call 937-4295


 

 

Mendo Matters has moved to a new Day, Wednesdays at 7 pm,  starting this week.


 

Our topic tonight is “Are the protests against the Willits Bypass doing anything to stop CalTrans?  


 

We’ll be joined by Dr Michael Semler, Professor of Political Science at Cal State University at Sacramento who has worked in and observed how Sacramento works for the last forty years.
