  1. I was stopped in a car near Steele & Mendocino Ave. I got a phone alert before I felt it. It felt like someone shaking the car. I hadn’t realized there was a 2nd until looking at FB later.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
