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!

U.S. attorneys are being advised to no longer base their prosecutions solely on the size of the marijuana operation, according to "Guidance Regarding Marijuana Enforcement" sent to federal prosecutors this summer.

The new aspects covered by the policy include the acknowledgement that two states have legalized the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Holder is expecting these states to establish a comprehensive regulatory and enforcement framework to keep the pot within the state borders, away from gangs or cartels and children.The presidents of the National Sheriffs' Association, the Major County Sheriff's Association, Major Cities Chiefs Police Association and National Narcotic Officers Associations' Coalition immediately protested the changes in a letter to Holder.

"The decision by the Department ignores the connections between marijuana use and violent crime.... The failure of the federal government to act in this matter is an open invitation to other states to legalize marijuana in defiance of federal law."Dale Gieringer of Cal National Organization for Marijuana Legalization says they "welcome the attorney general's announcement that the Department of Justice will not seek to overturn state marijuana laws. "

Gieringer has requested in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein for the attorney general to address whether "the DOJ (will) rescind its threats to prosecute local officials who try to regulate marijuana, as happened in Mendocino County" great reporting by Linda Williams in the Willits News.

 

A Sacramento area restauranteur who has been missing for over a week, was last seen in the Fort Bragg Area Nov 2nd.

He was last seen driving a rented silver Chevy SUV, with Oregon plates, 500GKN, which was due to be returned Nov. 5 but was not .

Pease is 5' 10" tall, 220 pounds, with gray hair and hazel eyes.

A long-time friend said that the electronic trail of credit card transactions stops in Fort Bragg. While his rental car was equipped with an OnStar emergency system, when they tried to contact the vehicle, a signal could not be found. It could be in a parking garage or, more likely, in a remote area without service.

Pease is the developer behind Roseville's Sammy Hagar-themed restaurant. In his absence, Sammy’s Rockin’ Island Bar & Grill closed its doors Sunday – temporarily, according to a note left on its door.

Pease spoke to his ex-wife by phone from Las Vegas on Oct. 28, mentioning that he needed to “clear his head,” .
