CHP saying more today about a fatal crash on Lakeville Highway on Friday afternoon. Officers say the man who died was behind the wheel of an open Jeep that rolled down an embankment, after nearly colliding head on CalFire SUV. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The end may be sight for crews battling the Kincaid Fire. CalFire says the blaze is now 80 percent contained, with full containment possible as soon as Thursday.

Since it started on October 23rd, the Kincaid fire has scorched more than 77,000 acres

The Mendocino County Elections Department says there is NO election on Tuesday, November 5th. There is apparently some confusion because the county has switched its special district election dates from ODD years to EVEN years. That means the next time Mendocino County Voters got to the polls is March 3rd 2020, for the California Presidential primary and other state and local elections. Candidates for any of those state or local races have until November 6th to submit their petitions in lieu of filing fees, while the filing period itself runs from November 11th to December 6th, with an extension until December 11th if the current office holder isn’t seeking re election. Another key date to keep in mind. You’ll have until February 17th next year to register to vote in the March election. The election/county clerk’s office is available to answer any questions.
