No big tent on the Mendocino Headlands this year: the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Mendocino Music Festival to cancel its 34th season. In its place, Festival Executive Director Barbara Faulkner and her staff have created online offerings specific to the Festival, and hope to present the same classical music programming next year.  Mendocino Village and the surrounding area will take a financial hit of at least $1.5 million, and locals and visitors alike will miss the live music. But there are some bright spots.

El programa comienza con una actualización de COVID-19 en el condado. Luego hablamos con Michelle Frederick de West sobre fondos para micro-negocios.

La segunda media hora hablamos con 3 mujeres dueñas de sus negocios sobre sus desafíos y esperanzas - Marisol Hernández de Style Salon en Fort Bragg, Mariluz Rodríguez de Elegancia Rodríguez en Ukiah y Andrea Mex del restaurante Café One en Fort Bragg. 

The 31-year-old Mendocino Coast Writers' Conference goes online this year because of COVID-19. But Executive Director Lisa Locascio, in her second year of diversifying the conference by recruiting more young writers of color as faculty and students, says it may make the conference even more accessible.

"Where to start?" asked Fort Bragg Mayor Will Lee on Monday night, after more than three hours of public testimony about whether to change the town's name. He and other City Council members debated briefly on their course of action, looking for a way to address diverse local input about a name that honors an unpopular confederate general, and refers to a fort established to "subdue" the indigenous population of the area in the mid 1850s. Vice mayor Bernie Norvell suggested substituting Union General Edward Bragg for the much-derided Braxton Bragg.
