Ukiah Valley’s Fire Chief says a Cessna pilot who had to make an emergency landing on Hwy 101 on Saturday afternoon did a good job doing it. Lee Barlow of Fort Bragg had just taken off from the Ukiah Municipal Airport when he radioed to say he was losing power and was not going to make back to the airport. Ukiah Valley Fire Authority Division Chief Jeff Adair tells the Press Democrat Barlow landed cleanly in the northbound lanes of 101 just south of Talmage Road and did a good job picking his spot and avoiding any cars. After landing, he pulled the plane onto the shoulder. Firefighters cut a hole in the freeway fence and rolled the plane onto a frontage road. No one was hurt.

The Lake County Board of Supervisors is thinking about selling off some properties. At their meeting Tuesday the Supes will consider resolutions regarding the proposed sale of the Holiday Harbor marina property in Nice and the former Lucerne visitor center. Lake County News reports Holiday Harbor has been up for sale before.

But this is the first time the former Lucerne visitor center at 6110 State Highway 20 would be up for sale since it closed in 2014. Docs show the minimum asking price would be $260,000.

About 40 people came out for a clean up at Lake Mendocino on Saturday. Organizer Chris Ostrom, of Pacific Outfitters led what he called a PacOut Green Team of Volunteers near the North Boat Ramp that included kids as young as 5 helping to clean up some trash. Ostrom tells the Daily Journal he feels the lake is vital to the local economy and it’s more than just his business that depends on a healthy amount of activity there. Also coming out to help were Mendocino County supervisors Carre Brown and John McCowen who himself has led efforts to clean up the local waterways. Ostrom is hosting another cleanup on July 22 at the Lake Mendocino South Boat Ramp. For more information, visit
