Health and Wellness Fair 2007
—Posted Sunday, October 14th, 2007 at 5:35 pm— « »

It’s difficult to estimate how many people attended yesterday’s First Annual Mendocino Coast Health and Wellness Fair. However, by eyeballing the crowd it is apparent that at least 200 people attended this event which is planned to be the first of many to come. 80 persons took advantage of the flu shots that were being provided at the low cost of $12 each. Each of the testing stations, including blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol and audiology had similar reports.

But there was much, much more to see and to do as well. The MCDH ambulance was in attendance, as was the Reach Helicopter (pictured above). Education was available on local health and wellness services. Horse-drawn carriage rides and a bounce house were popular for the kids. And there was great healthy food too. Whatever the number was yesterday, I expect many more next year when we do this event again. I am sure that word of mouth around town and on the coast are going to get around that this is another great Mendocino Coast event and tradition!

Good News Guys Part 2

This morning as I was listening to the “Good News Guys” radio show, I heard the station owner come on the air and report that, “at least for the time being, the station is going to be shut down while engineers determine what repairs may be necessary in order to bring the station back up to FCC compliance due to a weak signal.” It is unknown at this time when, if ever, KSAY will be back on the air.

I stopped by the station on my way into work to find out if this is all true. Fred and Jay assured me that “this sort of thing has happened before and the station has always continued on.” I sincerely hope so. It’s always nice to start my morning each day with some good old fashioned music and with reminders of all the good things that are happening locally. Good luck Fred and Jay. I am going to miss you both until you are back on the air.
