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 National Weather Service expects record cold temperatures overnight into Monday morning. They've issued another hard freeze warning and record cold temperatures continue with lows falling into the 20s along the coast . 

Snow and ice forced the closure of Highway 101 in Mendocino County Friday at Redwood Valley and three miles north of Willits to Laytonville.

CHP Spokesman Steve Kruhl urged caution on all roads, but urged drivers to be especially careful on any winding, mountainous road, giving the examples of Highways 253, 175 and 20, along with Mountain House and Orr Springs roads. East Road into Potter Valley is relatively straight, but "sections of it get icy at night," he said.

The CHP responded to 13 accidents in three hours on Friday.

The last time Inland Mendocino County got a measurable amount of snow was in 2001, when two inches fell in Ukiah.

At 20 degrees, Ukiah broke a three-year record for cold temperatures recorded on Dec. 6.

Temperatures should be returning to a normal Mendocino winter next week, with highs expected in the mid- to high 50s and low 60s. The next storm system will hit late in the week, when temperatures are expected to be above freezing. Thanks to the NWS, the press democrat & the UDJ for info used in this story. 

 

South Coast environmentalists scored a victory when Sonoma County Court Judge Elliot Daum rejected a plan to clearcut 154 acres of redwoods to plant vineyards for a Spanish winery. The proposal was challenged by the Sierra Club’s Redwood Chapter, the Center for Biological Diversity and Friends of the Gualala River. Judge Daum agreed that the state’s “environmental impact report” for Artesa Winery’s project violates the California Environmental QualityAct.The judge found that, in preparing the environmental review for the project, Cal Fire failed to properly analyze alternatives that would be less damaging to the environment, such as using an unforested area for the vineyard.The court also determined that the agency did notappropriately address the lost carbon sequestration that would result from destroying the redwood forest.  The judge also agreed with the conservation groups that the environmental report wrongly ignored California Board of Forestry policy regarding forest conversions which opposes the conversion of timberland. Finally, the court ruled that Cal Fire failed to properly address the project’s pesticide impacts as well as the noise impacts.

 

Robinson Rancheria's tribal chair, Tracey Avila,who was facing trial for grand theft for allegedly embezzling more than $60,000 from another local tribe, has died following several months of declining health.

Her attorney, Justin Petersen of Ukiah, did not know when she died or the exact cause of death, but confirmed she had a number of ongoing health concerns, including diabetes.

“She was recovering from a stroke but had a number of other medical issues, primarily kidney failure,” he said.

Avila was facing trial for having allegedly taken the money while working as Elem’s fiscal officer from February 2006 to September 2008.

 

Because of the very cold temperatures, the Extreme Weather Shelter in Fort Bragg is open to homeless individuals for check-in until 8 p.m. Anyone is welcome at the Extreme Weather Shelter, including people who are intoxicated and or have dogs.People in need of overnight shelter should check in at the Hospitality House at 237 N. McPherson St. Fort Bragg, or call 961-1150. There will be a van doing outreach on the streets of Fort Bragg and Mendocino too.

You can help all homeless services with donations of food, clothing, toiletries or towels by taking items to Hospitality House, or by mailing checks to Hospitality House, P.O. Box 2168, Fort Bragg 95437.
