Shane (his son) just announced his death. He died during the night on Friday.

Terrible News From Elk. Paul McCarthy Has Died.

RIP Paul

Whoa, just walked in and saw this post, damn SAD.

I never met Paul, but we had periodic email exchanges when I’d send him tips and such, and he’d occasionally Thank me for some of my posts to the Announce list.

He was a big part of our coastal community, and through his consistent efforts it became much closer knit.

Where Paul found the time to keep MSP vital and timely I don’t know, but he did and it was a valuable resource for us on the Mendo coast.

He was our own Kym Kemp/Redheaded Blackbelt, and he’ll be sorely missed.

May his family find much love, support and solace during this tragic time.

I just got the sad news that Paul McCarthy of Elk passed away Friday night, according to a post from his son Shane McCarthy.

Paul lived on the north side of Elk Creek at Hwy. 1. He created and maintained the MendocinoSportsPlus (MSP) news page on Facebook, with multiple posts daily with his own coverage of school sports or news gleaned from scanner listening and his own roving up and down the coast with his camera.

He was a good guy and always sought to serve and help the community. He started MSP as an outlet for his coverage of his son Shane’s school sports events, and soon expanded it to include bits and pieces of community news. After Shane’s graduation and departure for college, Paul continued to travel to and cover high school sports, but his page was more and more filled with non-sports news.

Paul grew up in New Hampshire, and his accent gave away his roots.

Mendocino County Sheriff Kendall is currently acting in Unified Command with CALFIRE and has recognized that CALFIRE has a 53% decrease in their Type 1 Hand Crews that are staffed by inmates from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

Because of this situation, Sheriff Kendall is seeking assistance from the Governor’s Office in obtaining California National Guard resources to assist with fire suppression efforts related to the August Complex West Zone impacting Mendocino County.

The California National Guard is trained to assist CALFIRE Type 1 Hand Crews in establishing and maintaining fire lines and will not be used for any law enforcement related purposes if deployed to Mendocino County as requested by Sheriff Kendall.

Just before moving to the Valley, for my high school years, I knew this girl in the photo. Her name was Janet Rigsbee. We went to school together. As you can see, she was very easy on the eyes. I didn’t hear about her again until I left the Valley for college. She now had a new name. It was Janet Planet and she was with Van Morrison, who is the fellow in the photo. Van Morrison wrote several songs about her, but my favorite is “Brown Eyed Girl”.

Noyo’s guardian had to surrender her to the shelter, so we have lots of information about her. According to her previous guardian, Noyo is very affectionate but also timid. We have to agree with that. Although she is shy, she often initiates attention and pets and gives kisses. Noyo is also described as being protective of her guardian and wary of new people until she gets to know them. Noyo enjoys going for car rides and likes to sleep with a soft blanket and a pillow (but of COURSE!) A calm environment would be perfect for this very sweet dog. We recommend older children in Noyo’s new home, due to her timid nature around new people. Noyo is 1-1/2 years old and a 55 svelte pounds.
