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!

Because of the federal government shutdown, the 

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreational facilities in Californiclosed Sunday, including the Lake 

Sonoma and Lake Mendocino. All campers must exit these facilities by Monday at 9 a.m. No hiking, day-use areas, visitor centers, restrooms, or special 

events will be open or available.


Lake Sonoma Marina is a concessionaire and will

continue to operate.


The Bay Model Visitor Center has already closed.


The Corps will continue its critical operations:

Warm Springs and Coyote Valley dam operators will still manage operations to reduce flood risk.

Security patrols will continue to protect federal 

property.

The Don Clausen Fish Hatchery will operate to 

protect the endangered Coho and threatened 

Steelhead Salmon.The District will continue to 

remove debris from the San Francisco Bay federal 

channels that threatens cargo vessels, shipping lanes, port operations and commuter vessels.



 

 

Two new candidates have entered into the Third 

Supervisorial race, bringing the total to five.


Clay Romero, a self-employed mechanic and "conservative Christian,"  

favors "the creation of wealth through businesses that offer manufacturing, farming and any other business

 that produces a physical product." He is also believes law enforcement is a priority, supports the Willits bypass, the Brooktrails second access, building a 

bigger water supply, and smaller local government.


He also calls himself "passionate about gun rights and home schooling." 

 

The AVA reports that Romero was arrested October 10th, 2008 “on suspicion of inflicting cruel or inhuman punishment upon a child resulting in visible injury.”


According to the Willits Weekly, Mike Tobin, a 17 

year Mendocino Deputy Sheriff, now retired, is also in the race. He co-founded - along with then Sheriff John Tusco - the 

Mendocino Youth Activities League in 1996. He is

 also co-owner of Body Works Gym where he teaches free 

classes in karate to community youth. He favors 

bringing new businesses to the county to add to the 

tax base, and improve the economy.



 

 

The State Department of Toxic Substances says they are closing in on a final cleanup plan for the 

remaining portions of Fort Bragg's former Georgia 

Pacific mill site. Tom Lanphar, DTSC project manager , said the central mill pond and low-lying powerhouse area are still considered to be "areas of concern." However, the majority of the site has been cleaned to state standards and is considered 

ready for reuse.


The completion of a remedial investigation of the mill pond area is a major accomplishment.


"The investigation identified metals and dioxin 

contamination on several of the mill ponds,". "Metals, dioxin, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and 

petroleum hydrocarbons were found in soils."


GP, which is required to clean up the site, employs 

Arcadis environmental consultants to conduct 

environmental studies and draft a work plan. DTSC 

then examines their data and either approves the 

work plan or directs them to provide more information.

A cleanup feasibility study will be done and made public.

 A public review period will also occur and notice will be given.

A California Environmental Quality Act review will also occur and the City Council will have final approval 

authority for the cleanup plan and zoning.


Every document related to the site's cleanup can be

 found on the DTSC Envirostor database at 

www.envirostor.dtsc.ca.gov/public/ by using 

Fort Bragg, CA as a search term and Georgia Pacific Corporation in the lower left corner.
