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!

Governors in 16 states are unveiling a high-tech wildlife habitat mapping project they hope will encourage economic development across the West while protecting the region's environmental treasures at the Western Governors Association's two-day, annual gathering in Las Vegas.


Five years in the making, the database will connect 16 western states from California and Alaska to Montana and Oklahoma with a first-of-its-kind online system of maps displaying wildlife habitat, wetlands and other valuable natural resources — much of it detailed down to square-mile increments.


The Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool, or CHAT, provides layers of data that rate the resources on a scale of one to six, from most to least "crucial." 


It's expected to be especially helpful for projects that may encounter species of concern in multiple states, like the northern spotted owl in the Pacific Northwest, the sage grouse in the Great Basin or the prairie chicken in the Southwest.


Conservation groups have expressed interest in the data to help make decisions about prioritizing protection of wildlife or purchasing property most valuable to their preservation mission.



 

The freezing temperatures should be loosening their grip on the Ukiah Valley and Inland Mendocino County in the coming week, but caution is still urged on the road.


Although morning and nighttime lows are expected to be above freezing starting Friday and warming gradually through the coming week, drivers can still expect to see some icy patches on local roads.


"We still have a large part of Brooktrails where the roads have ice on them; in the Covelo and Laytonville areas some roads still have ice on them; some streets in Willits still have ice, and the schools are still open," Mendocino Sheriff Tom Allman cautioned. 


The NWS also reported that no more snow is on the horizon for the area.


NWS meteorologist Jeff Tonkin, said "Temperature-wise, it looks like it's going to be above freezing through the next week. It looks like there's going to be some pretty benign winter weather."


Lows over the weekend are expected to be in the mid- to high 30s, and to reach the low 40s by the late part of next week. The afternoon temperatures are expected to gradually warm into the low 70s by the middle of the week.

New figures show that over the last year, California's population grew by the highest rate in nearly a decade.


The state Department of Finance said Thursday that California added 332,000 people between July 1, 2012 and July 1 of this year. The state population now stands at 38.2 million.


Demographers say the overall 0.9 percent growth rate was the highest since 2003-04, before the recession.


The increase was largely driven by new births. Migration added only 66,000 people.


Alameda and Santa Clara counties in the San Francisco Bay Area saw the largest percentage increases in population, followed by Santa Barbara, Placer and Kern counties. 



When Brice Lee McKinnon, 22, was sentenced to six years eight months in prison for arson of forest lands, many were unaware that with prison realignment he will actually serve only half that sentence. Judge Ann Moorman adopted the Mendocino County Probation Office's recommendation for six year eight months in prison.


The county reserved the issue of reimbursement for the estimated $150,000 in firefighting costs associated with the five fires for a future date.


McKinnon pleaded guilty to five counts of arson of forest land but California does not include arson of forest land in its list of serious or violent crimes which reduce the amount of credits convicts receive for time served.


"I firmly believe the defendant needs to be sentenced to state prison for the maximum time allowed," stated Ryan Finn, CalFire investigator and fire captain.
