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.

The Mendocino City Community Services District has officially declared a Stage 2 Water Shortage because 2013 rainfall was 26.81 inches compared to the average 34.80 inches.

Recorded rainfall from the District's rain gauge at the end of December 2012 was 22.38 inches, which was 55 percent above normal but January through April had only 6 inches of rain when the average for this period is 23.3 inches.

A Stage 2 water shortage is considered a moderate water shortage.

Residents and businesses in the district are asked to voluntarily reduce their water use by 15 percent. The District's plan recommends the following temporary conservation measures:

- Landscape watering is limited to manual garden hose watering, or a drip irrigation system, between the hours of 7 p.m. to 10 a.m.

- No vehicle washing, except with a hand-held bucket or a hose equipped with a shut-off nozzle.

- Drinking water served at restaurants only upon request.

State Routes 20, 29 and 53scenic and winding roads are favored by thousands of motorcyclists, alcohol compounds the problem. 

CHP’s Clear Lake and Ukiah Areas will conduct a joint enforcement day on Friday, May 24, focusing on motorcycle safety and impaired driving.

Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes.

They also will be cracking down on both those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or committing any other dangerous violation.


Officers from both areas will be out in force patrolling US-101 and SR-20 in Mendocino County, and Highways 20, 29 and 53 in Lake County.
