Independent Media Must Stay Strong!


Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

The Lake County Board of Supervisors Tuesday voted unanimously to let the voters decide on whether a senior mobile home park rent control initiative should become law in the county's unincorporated areas.

The group “Save Our Seniors” collected more than 2,500 valid signatures in order to place the measure on the June 2014 ballot.

They define a senior mobile home park as one where 80 percent of the homes have at least one person over age 55. It rolls back rents to Jan. 1, 2012, and requires that rent increases be based on the percent of Social Security benefit increases.

Community Development Director Rick Coel reported the potential for a decrease in available senior housing if park owners sought to convert to nonsenior parks . Reduced revenue for park owners also has the potential to lead to an increase in blight if park owners are unable to keep up with property maintenance.

Doug Johnson of the Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association sent board members a letter asking them not to approve placing the initiative, arguing that the board's approval will lead voters to believe that it is “legally and constitutionally sound..”Johnson also wrote, “Any law that proposes to strip almost all the economic value of a property , without just compensation and a rational process of appeal, is a gross violation of the 5th Amendment.


A Winter Storm Watch now in effect from Friday morning through Friday evening... Snow accumulations could be 3 plus inches above 2000 feet. One inch or less may accumulate as low as 500 to 1500 feet.  

Expect near record cold again tonight. Very cold air will continue to plunge southward across northwest California through Thursday as high pressure builds southward from eastern Washington and Oregon. Temperatures will be a few degrees colder than Wednesday with more cold mornings this weekend. 


Mary Ann Landis tells us that at the Ukiah City Council meeting Wednesday night where the biggest topic was whether to accept the Costco EIR about 15 people spoke both for and against the project.

After the public comment, representatives from the Costco team answered their questions. After the three hour meeting, the council decided that a vote would be postponed due to a large packet being submitted to the council that had not been previously reviewed. They continued the item until December 18th so staff can ascertain if any new questions are being asked in the inch and a half document. However, a straw poll was taken (4-0) to see if the EIR is adequate for us as decision-makers to understand and plan for environmental impacts.

The store would be built on 15.33 acres near the Ken Fowler Auto Center on Airport Park Boulevard and include a bakery, pharmacy, tire center and gas station. 

The pay for an entry level cashier is $11.50 compared to the mostly minimum wage offered by many other retailers. The company also offers medical benefits and paid holidays.

In other action, Council member Thomas said he will not run again next year, Vice Mayor Baldwin was nominated as Mayor and Council member Landis as Vice Mayor for 2014 on a (4-0) vote.
