A Sonoma County high school has been evacuated after some graffiti was found indicating a specific threat. Analy High School administrators evacuated all 1,100 students and sent them home around Noon after Sebastopol Police were called to investigate the threat. While police said there were no additional signs of a “credible or imminent threat” during the evacuation, the school administration decided to keep the school closed for the day. It will be back open Wednesday but with an increased police presence on the campus for the next several days.

More snow is likely in the foothills and passes as the region goes under a Winter Storm Warning from Wednesday through Saturday. Forecasters say the total snow accumulations for the 4-day stretch could be 3 to 5 feet or more above the 3500-foot level. But foothill locations above 2000 feet can expect between 8 inches and 2 feet. And they say it will be accompanied by some gusty winds, which means visibility could be affected. While the warning officially starts Wednesday afternoon, forecast tracks are showing the snow coming in Thursday afternoon.

The Mendocino CHP Office is looking for witnesses to a fatal crash that happened last week. It was Thursday evening around 830pm on Mitchell Creek Drive south of Turner Road. Officers say a Fort Bragg woman was northbound and on a curve in a 2002 Mazda when she lost control and her car spun off the road and hit a tree. The CHP is asking anyone who saw the crash or who has information that could help the investigation to contact them at the CHP Ukiah Office.

The Ukiah Planning Commission is set to consider a permit for a new three-story, 31-unit apartment complex for lower-income seniors proposed for the empty lot behind Rite-Aid at the corner of West Gobbi and South Oak.

US Cellular has applied for the permit to build the tower on the property of B&B Industrial Hardware and Metals. The Planning Commission meets Wednesday at 6pm at the Ukiah Civic Center.
