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!

Today at 1:00PM CAL FIRE Mendocino  will be 

conducting another vegetation management control 

burn on privately-owned land on the Shamrock Ranch in the northern 

portion of Mendocino County.

The prescribed burning conducted under this 

Vegetation Management Program (VMP) project will be done to meet a specific objective and conducted 

under specific climatic conditions to ensure control and minimize air quality and biological impacts. These conditions will mimic conditions under which natural wildfires occur to maximize the positive effects of fire on vegetation. 

This project burn will be conducted under strictly 

controlled weather and fuel conditions.












Another house has collapsed in Lakeside Heights. 

The home  had been halfway suspended on a hillside after part of its floor had fallen away earlier this year. However, this week the back half of the house split 

off and slid down the hill.

The home was among several damaged by the 

landslide, which began to crack and split through 

the hilltop subdivision in March.

Most of the damaged homes, including this, were 

located along Lancaster Road.

The causes of the slide are still under dispute, but in some part appear related to saturation of the hillside by a water source.

The subdivision's property owners, who are preparing to file a lawsuit against the county, believe it's a

 county water system that is the source of the water

that saturated the hillside. County officials maintain

 that leak tests don't support that conclusion.









A new director takes charge of the C.V. Starr 

Community Center the last week of November.  

Ethan Newton will serve as the center’s chief 

operating officer and will report to the Mendocino 

Coast Recreation and Parks District (MCRPD) 

Board of Directors.

Over 40 applicants for the position were received. Six candidates were interviewed by two panels 

consisting of community members, aquatics 

professionals, and District and City staff. 

Ethan has worked 13 years in Washington State for municipal parks and recreation departments. He is a National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) Certified Parks and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and a NRPA Aquatic Facility Operator (AFO). 










 On November 1 -- this Friday -- all Californians who receive food assistance 

through the federal Supplemental Nutrition 

Assistance Program (SNAP, known in California as 

CalFresh) will see their already-modest benefits decline by about $10 per person per month. This reduction is occurring because an

 increase provided in the 2009 American Recovery 

and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) -- as a means of spurring economic growth and 

preventing hunger in low-income households -- expires at the end of this month. 

The cut in benefits will affect more than 4 million Californians, over half of them children.














On Thursday, October 31, 2013 Wall Street in FB  

will be closed between Oak Street and Chestnut 

Street from 6:00p.m. to 9:00p.m. at the request of

 several neighbors on Wall Street and the Fort Bragg Police Department. 

This closure is due to the safety concerns for the

 ever increasing foot 

traffic on Wall Street on Halloween.  

Here's a few safety tips for Halloween. Carry a 

flashlight while escorting your children and consider wearing a reflective vest for visibility. 

Watch your child at all times, and do not allow them 

to run ahead of you or cross streets without you.  

At the end of the night, inspect the treats, looking for harmfuitems.  

The Fort Bragg Police Department also asks those in vehicles to slow down and be extra careful due to 

the children and increased foot traffic. 



Stay tuned for Give & Take  @ 9:00 AM

Michael Kisslinger’s guest this week will be Camille 

Schraeder, CEO of Redwood Quality Management.  They will be discussing the new Mental Health services delivery system in Mendocino County.
