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.

Mendocino Sheriff's are looking for a 26-year-old man who shot at a woman who stopped him while he was breaking into her car.

Deputies learned that a guest at the hotel had left her room and found a man, later identified as Baraquel Simon Ruiz, a transient, allegedly inside her vehicle and rummaging through it in the parking lot.

The guest confronted the Ruiz and grabbed him to remove him from her vehicle and a brief struggled ensued. When Ruiz began walking away from the victim, he then allegedly pulled a small-caliber handgun from his waistband, pointed it at her and fired two or three rounds that hit the passenger side of her vehicle. Ruiz then left the scene on foot.

Deputies identified Ruiz as the shooter from a photo lineup with the victim.

Ruiz is still at large and is considered armed and dangerous. He was wearing a black beanie style hat, a black "puffy" style jacket and black jeans at the time of the shooting.

A photograph of Ruiz is expected to be added to the "County's Most Wanted" section of the Mendocino Sheriff's website ,mendocinosheriff.com. 

Anyone with information is urged to call the tipline 234-2100 or the dispatch center at 463-4086.



Harborside in Oakland, the nation's largest medical marijuana dispensarywon a round in court Monday when a federal judge denied an effort by its landlords to immediately shut it down.

Chief Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James said "any argument about the urgency of stopping Harborside's activity rings hollow" since the landlords have known for years that it was a medical cannabis dispensary.

The feds did not seek an immediate stop to sales when they moved against the landlords last summer, "indicating that the Government was not focused on suspending Harborside's operations during the pendency of the forfeiture actions," James wrote.

The city of Oakland has weighed in, siding with Harborside in a lawsuit against federal prosecutors that contends the forfeiture attempt is unlawful because it falls outside the statute of limitations and that federal officials allowed Oakland to believe they would not pursue dispensaries that were complying with state and local laws.

The U.S. attorney's office has filed a motion to toss Oakland's suit, contending that the city has no legal standing to weigh in. That issue will be heard at a hearing on Jan. 31.


Cal Fire said this week that it is hiring seasonal firefighters for this year’s fire season.

Seasonal firefighters are entry level positions that eventually can lead to careers in the agency.

The application filing period for the 2013 season ends Jan. 31.

Hiring usually occurs between April and June, depending upon the year's fire and weather conditions.

The minimum qualification is that a person must be 18 years of age .

Applications will be accepted by mail or in person for the units in the Northern Region. Applications can be downloaded at http://calfire.ca.gov/about/downloads/careers/FFI_Application.pdf .



The Mendocino Planning department has extended the deadline for public comment on the Grist Creek concrete batch plant project until January 30. 

Neighbors of the plant in Longvale have expressed concern about noise levels from a plant allowed to operate from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, as well as impacts to water quality, salmon habitat, and air quality. The site is located next to Outlet Creek.

The public comment deadline had to be extended due to a California Environmental Quality Act requirement that any finding by a public agency that a project will have no significant environmental impact, known as a negative declaration, must be referred to a "state clearinghouse" so it can be reviewed by any state agencies with responsibility in that area, such as the State Water Resources Control Board or the California Department of Fish & Wildlife.











Takes on the World; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Jeff Blankfort will be speaking once again with  journalist Patrick Cockburn of the London Independent who has just returned from 10 days in Syria and the'll be discussing the likely future of that war torn country. That's next Wednesday,  on Takes on the World.  And they'll be taking your questions.
