mcso Mendocino County Sheriff's Office MCSOOn 10-13-2016 at approximately 6:03 P.M., Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were contacted by fugitive recovery agents regarding a subject named Joshua Thomas with multiple warrants for his arrest.

  • THIS SITE IS NOW BORING - NEEDS SOEM GOOD JOURNALISM

    IS IT JUST ME OR IS THIS WEBSITE KIND OF LOSING IT’S LUSTER SINCE THERE HAS BEEN NO MJ BUSTS? THIS SITE WAS MUCH MORE FUN WHEN EVERYONE WAS GETTING BUSTED. NOW IT’S JUST A BORING POLICE BLOG. NEEDS SOME REAL JOURNALISM TO GET THE MOJO BACK. JUST LOOK AT RELATED STORIES ON THE LOSTCOAST OUTPOST. MUCH MORE INTEREST ON THEIR WEBSITE. REDHEADED BLACKBELT WAS ROCKING WHEN THE COPS WERE BUSTING GROWERS, NOW IT’S JUST BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, SAME OLD BULLSHIT NEW DAY. BORING!!

    • THIS SITE IS NOW BORING - NEEDS SOME GOOD JOURNALISM

      SORRY FOR THE CAPS AND GRAMMATICAL ERROR ON THE WORD SOME. I’M SURE THIS IS ANNOYING TO MANY READERS. MY APOLOGIES.

      • We are sorry for your anger that your buddy was arrested, frankly we don’t give two shits what you think, toodles!

    • First of all, Dipstick, turn off the Caps Lock key that is more annoying than any “Grammatical Errors”!!! Second there are some slow news days on ANY blog just because this one doesn’t report every little toe stubbing does NOT make it Boring by ANY stretch of imagination!!! If you don’t like it then by all means don’t read it!!!

  • THIS SITE IS NOW BORING - NEEDS SOME GOOD JOURNALISM

    DO PEOPLE REALLY GIVE A SHIT ABOUT SOME GUY IN COVELO GETTING BUSTING FOR OUTSTANDING WARRANTS. I COULD PERSONALLY CARELESS AND I’M SURE MANY READERS AGREE. THE EMERALD MAGAZINE HAS BECOME THE GOT TO SITE FOR EVERYTHING MJ. WHAT IS THE REDHEADED BLACKBELT ALL ABOUT NOW? JUST A POLICE BLOG OR IS IT MORE THAN THAT? WHAT DIRECTION IS THIS SITE HEADED? I FEEL LIKE IT’S LOST IN LIMBO W/ NO REAL DIRECTION. WHAT WILL THIS SITE LOOK LIKE NEXT YEAR WHEN THER ARE NO BUSTS? PROBABLY HARDLY ANY READERS. GOOD TIME TO REFLECT AND THINK ABOUT WHERE THIS SITE IS HEADED AND WHAT INFORMATION THE PUBLIC REALLY WANTS. DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE W/ THESE COMMENTS?

    • WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE THEN [edit]? GET ON OVER TO LOCO AND DON’T LOOK BACK. YOU WON’T BE MISSED I’M SURE.

      • I would say accidents, road closures, power outages, fires, benefits for the community, government regulating, good deeds, positive projects, are a short list of the things Kym tries to cover. Like Kmud, Kym provides our community with a connection to rest of our rural community. Apparently you are new here and all you care about is the pot busts. For the real community there is more to Humboldt than pot and busts. Besides the fact she does this with a Skeleton crew and budget. How much do you do for other people?

    • Kym covers northern Mendocino County, where she has a readership. Get up to speed, whiner.

    • Feel free to start your own. Kym is great. I understand she does get some criticism I see on here for following some of the busts, and I do enjoy reading about them. Please take your criticism elsewhere . Thank you Kym.

    • Sure sign that all the dope is gone….get some sleep cupcake

    • Never fails there’s always one moron that has to draw attention to themselves by hating on someone or something. I read Kym’s blog everyday and I think she does a great job. So sorry that some people just have the need to be “ATTENTION WHORES” by flapping their gums about nothing that I find interesting to read, I agree you don’t like Kym’s site then click on the X at the top of the page, problem solved….Sheesh!!!

    • Lost Coast is a dribble bias POS rag that has lost its credibility with the people who made it what it is.

  • FEEL FREE TO GO TO LOCO ANY TIME, NO ONE MADE YOU LOOK AT THIS SITE, CANT MAKE NEWS WHEN THERE IS NONE

  • Was it dog? The methhead bounty hunting Hippocrate?

    • The term is spelled hypocrite!!! A quick spelling lesson at NO extra charge!!! I don’t think that Dog wastes his time on puny catches like him he likes crossoing borders & getting HIS ass busted to make him look more important!!!!

  • I think this community is very happy for what kym dose for us I know I am. [edit]

    • Absolutely so & we DO NOT need some Moron who can’t type or spell for sh!t to tell us it’s boring & to go to LoCO I do go to LoCO but I always stop here first, on my way over to the Zoo that is LoCO sometimes!!!!

    • She didn’t win that “Citizen of the Year Award” by NOT reporting things, I will guarantee that much!!!

  • I like a dose of Kym. Daily or as needed to provide information or humor.

  • Kym kemp is the best I read her paper every day .keep up the continued great work .I suppose you can make up story’s on busts .to make other readers happy .the cops havnt done shit to bust the bullshitgarians and Mexicans cartel grows.downy is the worst sheriff we ever had .that’s why kym got nothing to write about .Because the sheriff is not doing any busts or they are not talking about who they bust or do not bust .Again kym you rock .signed your biggest fan.

  • Steady as she goes Kim. Steady as she goes. Fools ahead. Steady as she goes.

  • DON’T COMPLAIN, IT’S A FREE GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA WEBSITE!

    LEARN HOW TO COME INTO COMPLIANCE WITH YOUR LEADERS!

  • What's New(s), anyway?

    Neither you nor Kym nor anyone else can stop people from NOT doing things that are newsworthy.

    LoCO may have more stuff in it, but IMHO their recent upturn in efforts to be “cute” with their headlines and within stories detracts from its being news. News and commentary/opinion deserve to be separated.

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump

    The stories are good, people share ideas on things, you can learn how not to steal water or how to rig oil sprayers on your car, or how fast people get released.

    There is something for everyone.

    • Now that’s funny stuff. Yea, the reposting of popo press releases is poor styling, but did you read the kickass report on The football game?!? Dude lighten up. I think you were trying to be funny and failed. Awww that’s OK. Try again, yu might get better at it, humor that is

  • What other site gives you 29 minutes to edit your comments? NONE! This alone makes coming here and commenting a pleasure as one might change their mind and edit a comment made in emotional haste. I stopped going to LOCO a long time ago: too many short hairs!

    • Honeydew Bridge Chump

      Plus Kym isn’t on some millennial trip.

      Kids these days never crossed mountain ranges in blizzards to walk to school. Kym understands this…

  • I always look to Kym for what’s going on in Mendocino County.
    If I had to rely on the online Willits no-news, I’d go nuts!

    Thank you so much Kym!

  • Dear mr.all caps,first thing no one asked YOU to read this site.so rather than bitch about it,DON’T READ IT!!we enjoy having a site that tells us the things WE want to know.and even in news papers,their are days when theirs no news.just sayin.and 2nd thing,please don’t disrespect kym she does a good job for us and I for one am greatful!!thanks kym
