Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman will be holding a press conference Wednesday morning highlighting the events of the first 12 hours of the Mendocino Lake Complex Fire. The press conference is at 10am. It is open to the public and will be held at the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors chambers, which is at 501 Low Gap Road in Ukiah. The press conference will also be live-streamed on the County of Mendocino Facebook page.

A big step forward for Ukiah’s long-planned “Purple Pipe” recycled water system. The Ukiah Daily Journal reports the Ukiah City Council has awarded a $22.3 million contract to Ghilotti Construction for the first three phases of the project that eventually will stop sending treated wastewater into the river and instead divert it or reclaim it for other uses. The City Public Works Director say the first three steps will by done by the end of 2018 and while they won’t mean 100 percent of treated wastewater will be diverted from river, it sets up the infrastructure for the final phase which probably will. The Purple Pipe is projected to cost upwards of $40 million but the state has pledged about $30 million in grants and low-interest loans.

A Santa Rosa Junior College football coach has been charged with murder for a DUI car accident that killed a Sonoma State University student. Police allege Logo Tevaseu was drunk when he crossed the double yellow line Sunday night on Lakeville Highway and slammed his pickup truck head-on into the car driven by 21-year-old Paulette Quiba. The Press Democrat reports prosecutors have filed a five-count complaint including murder because Tevaseu was convicted of drunken driving in Sonoma County in 2012. He was being held without bail.

The Redwood Community Services Inland Emergency Winter Shelter is now open. The shelter is located at 1045 South State Street in Ukiah but you can’t just show up there to get in. Anyone seeking a bed should go to Plowshares at 1346 South State to go through the intake process. They are doing intake this week from 3:30pm to 6pm until Friday and next week from 5:30 to 6:30pm. You must be in the shelter by 8pm each night to claim your spot. They are also soon going to start asking the community for donations.
