Mendocino County and water agencies are asking Sonoma County to reduce water releases from Lake Mendocino, which has extremely low levels. "We are going to have a small mudhole shortly," read the county supervisors' letter to the Sonoma County Water Agency. The lake had plenty of winter rain, but not enough spring rain to replenish releases.

Tribal leaders of the Pinoleville Band of Pomo Indians said Wednesday that the purchase of 105 acres of land near Ukiah High School was made to reclaim ancient ceremonial and burial sites, not for development of a casino. Tribal Chairwoman Leona Williams said rising concerns among neighbors and local officials that the tribe was considering a gambling hall on a portion of the land were groundless.

An emergency plea for water conservation was issued after three days of scorching triple-digit temperatures all but emptied the city's 3-million-gallon storage tank. City officials asked residents to stop watering lawns, washing cars and even doing the laundry to allow time for the tank to be refilled. The city has adequate water available for normal use, but even with reduced consumption and cooler weather, it could take two days or more to refill the water tank, officials said.

In its first three days of operation, the new metal detection system at Ukiah's courthouse turned up at least 227 potential weapons. So far, no guns have been found. But a number of people, upon entering the courthouse and seeing the X-ray machines and metal detectors, have turned and walked out, said Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Welch, who supervises courthouse security.

The theater still shows old black and white movies, and film posters line the walls. But beginning Monday, there will be a new kind of concession stand treat at the Forks Theater, and it won't be popcorn, Goobers or Junior Mints. The white clapboard building is set to become home to the Ukiah Cannabis Club, which will provide marijuana to the terminally ill. Among the items for sale will be "Green Five Star Medicinal" at $20 per gram, "Mexican B" at $5 per gram.

Until recently, homeowners hoping to purchase environmentally sensitive building materials faced a frustrating search. Though the promise of newer and better technologies was long, supplies were short. Now, thanks to a widening supply stream, tracking down improved products is getting easier.

QUESTION: I live in a warm climate. I would like to install two water-heating solar panels on my roof and connect them to my electric hot water tank so that hot water from the roof enters the tank through the cold water inlet. Will you please discuss this in your column? ANSWER: Over the years, a number of designs have evolved for heating water with solar panels. One common system uses an antifreeze solution circulating through the solar panel.

Funny how one can get lost, even before leaving home. While planning a trip to Mendocino County, I got sidetracked by details on the website for the Other Place guest ranch. It said the property's first cottage had a great room with a wood-burning stove. A second cottage came with an oversized tub in the bathroom. The last cottage boasted a dining room with pastoral views. Decisions, decisions. In the end the choice didn't matter.
