Why The Cops Won’t Share

Every few years, there’s a flurry of interest in Mendo’s obvious misallocation of Proposition 172 funds. Then everything returns to the status quo. It goes…

Mendo Forester Greg Giusti Fights Fire With Fire

Forester Greg Giusti doesn’t fight fires with water, hoses and aerial assaults. He didn’t fight the Valley Fire or any of the other conflagrations —…

The Magician

Most artists are unknown or little known outside their neighborhood or town or small circle of friends. This is not a bad or good thing, but merely the way of the world.

Bird’s Eye View (Oct 21, 2015)

Several Three-Dot regulars remarked on the strong aroma of marijuana emanating from a significant number of young folks in the Valley in recent weeks, many of whom have never been seen around here before. It is a mystery.

THE GUN NUT fantasy is that idiot bad guys will holler “Here we come!” and lurch, zombie-like into the front yard so that they can…

KZYX Rotations

On a pleasant late summer Labor Day evening, the KZYX Board of Directors met at the Anderson Valley Grange. All members were present with the…

Norway wakes up to the truth: city streets (and our lives) are better without cars!
