Thanks to everyone who helped us raise nearly $81,000 during our Fall Pledge Drive!

It was a real team effort, with literally hundreds of people pitching in to keep up the momentum. Whether you pledged your financial support, made on-air appeals, answered phones, donated food, time, or thank-you gifts, YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

Our goal was $120,000 and it was based on real needs. While we didn't get there, we all worked together in an upbeat way to express our gratitude to the community that sustains us. We made tremendous strides towards keeping KZYX moving forward in its mission of listener service. You have once again proven your commitment to keeping local public radio alive and well. Thank you!

St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake has announced the 

completion of phase two of the transformation of its 

emergency department, with all the upgraded 

facilities and services now available.

With an emphasis on faster access to top-quality care, the new emergency department is ready to fully serve the community, the hospital reported

 Wednesday night.

Improvements include the addition of 4,100 square 

feet, 12 private patient care rooms including two 

equipped for trauma care, new entrances and waiting areas, cutting-edge equipment and support systems upgrades.

The enhanced emergency department also provides

 increased patient care staff, and has upgraded 

laboratory and other services.


The Buddy Eller homeless shelter in Ukiah may have to close during the summer months if a $120,000 

shortfall isn't filled, according to  Director Jacqueline Williams. The center lost roughly half of its budget 

because it didn't provide enough counseling services to satisfy Federal officials, although it had regularly

 received funding in the past.

Friday at an open house, Ms Williams highlighted the shelter's services, including beds for those 

recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, beds for 

the mentally ill, help with job training in its gardens 

and kitchen and access to stable housing.

Part of the problem is that the shelter no longer 

provides services for those with mental illnesses, 

making Ukiah's shelter less competitive in a world 

where it needed more of an edge to vie nationally for a shrinking pot of federal dollars.

The grant matched local funding for the shelter for up to $230,000 annually. The local funding comes from 

the Mendocino Department of Social Services has

steadily declined to $117,000, where it's been for the past two fiscal years.

For more information or to contribute, call Janette 

Wright , 462-6290, or Debi Smith, 462-1934. Thanks to Tiffany Revelle at the UDJ.




Arcata residents who use an excessive amount of 

electricity can expect to see a spike in their 

November utility bill because Arcata's 'grow tax' has been implemented by PG&E.

The measure assesses a 45 percent tax on 'residences that use more than 600 percent of the 'energy baseline -- or the energy used to power three average homes -- energy consumption not uncommon to indoor marijuana grows.

Customers whose bills exceed $720 in the winter 

with gas heat, or $1,728 in the winter with electric 

heat will be affected.

The fee will be collected by PG&E, and the projected $1 million in revenue will be put in the city's general 

fund, according to a staff report. The measure was 

drafted after the city learned its residential electricity use from 2000 to 2006 increased by 30 percent. Of

the 9,500 residential meters in Arcata, 1,262 

exceeded 300 percent of the baseline, and 633 

exceeded the 600 percent mark.

The city expects to receive revenue from the tax in






California’s annual Dungeness crab sport fishery

opens statewide this Saturday, Nov. 2.

“Crab populations appear to be strong coming off 

another record-setting year in the commercial fishery,” said

 California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Senior Scientist Pete Kalvass. “However, crab in 

local areas of northern California above Cape 

Mendocino may be somewhat underweight for the 

first few weeks of the season due to a late molt.”

There is no limit to the number of pots or nets that 

can be fished recreationally, except when fishing 

from a public fishing pier where only two pots may be used.

Recreational crabbers may kep up to 10 Dungeness crabs per day of either sex, or six crabs if fishing

from a party boat south of Mendocino County.

No Dungeness crab may be taken from San 

Francisco or San Pablo bays, which are important

crab nursery areas.

The recreational size limit for Dungeness crab is five and three-quarter inches measured across the shell, directly in front of and excluding the lateral spines.

Dungeness crabs generally prefer cooler northern 

and central California waters and are uncommon 

south of Point Conception.




Tonight, the Environmental Protection Information 

Center (EPIC) is throwing it's 36th birthday party with the annual EPIC Fall Celebration at the Mateel 

Community Center, in Redway, California. 

The EPIC Fall Celebration is one of the cornerstone 

fundraising and community outreach events for EPICThe doors  will open at 6 PM for cocktails and dinner at 6:30 PM, followed by the evening program starting at 7:30 PM. At 9 PM music follows.
