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 governors of California, Oregon, Washington and the premier of British Columbia announced a partnership Monday to collectively combat climate change and promote clean energy.

Gov. Jerry Brown's office said the states and Canada will formally align climate policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and industrial sources.

The deal stems from the Pacific Coast Collaborative, a group meant to organize climate change and clean energy policies. It links together economies with a 

combined GDP of $2.8 trillion, the fifth largest in the world, according to Brown's office.











13 Bay Area men, defendants in an abalone poaching case, were all charged with felony conspiracy in 

Mendocino Superior Court Friday. In addition, 10 face misdemeanor charges of illegally taking abalone; five face misdemeanor charges of taking abalone for 

commercial purposes; and two are charged with 

felony perjury.

They are all accused of conspiring together to 

illegally harvest abalone from Mendocino coastal 

waters between April 1 and Aug. 11.

Henderson set a preliminary hearing in January for 

all 13 defendants to give all of the attorneys time to

 review the evidence against their clients. According 

to the DA's Office, groupings of four to eight of the 

accused men made four different trips from Oakland to Mendocino County to harvest abalone. 

Thanks to 

Tiffany Revelle of the UDJ for that story.










Ukiah's homeless shelter will offer mental health 

services again for the first time in more than two 

years, but not through the county's newly privatized mental health system.

Jacqueline Williams, executive director of the Ford 

Street Project, Ukiah Community Center and the 

Buddy Eller Center shelter, said she plans to start in November offering group therapy for the roughly 22 

percent of the shelter's residents who are considered "dual-diagnosis" because they not only have a drug or 

alcohol problem but are also mentally ill.

Those group therapy sessions stopped in 2010 when the county-run mental health department stopped funding the 

service and offering county staff to run the sessions because of budget cuts. The shelter needs to offer 

mental health services to be a more likely candidate  for a federal Emergency Shelter Services grant she

 had gotten regularly in the past but didn't receive in 

the last round of funding.

Now she's working to partner with local clinics and/or hospitals to find a sustainable way to offer the 

mental health services she still plans to provide.

Williams was one of several subcontractors who at 

first signed on with Ortner Management Group, which took over the county's adult mental health system.

Williams said she backed out of the contract with 

Ortner because the shelter wasn't being 

compensated for the time her staff spent developing 

the operational procedures for the new regime. 




Saudi Arabian activists said more than 60 women 

claimed to have gotten behind the wheel in a rare 

show of defiance against a ban on female driving in

 the ultraconservative kingdom.

Saudi professor Aziza Youssef said the group has received 13 videos and another 50 phone messages from women showing or claiming they had driven.

If the numbers are accurate, this year's campaign is 

the most successful effort yet by Saudi women 

demanding the right to drive. 

Though no specific Saudi law bans women from 

driving, women are not issued licenses.  Since the 

2011 driving campaign, Reforms made by King

Abdullah include allowing women to sit on the 

national advisory council and permiting women to 

vote and run in municipal elections in 2015.




Lake County's newest stoplight at Highway 53 and Olympic Drive in Clearlake will be activated today.

The stoplight is part of a larger highway project that 

also includes widening shoulders, adding and 

lengthening turn pockets at intersections, and 

repaving more than four miles of Highway 53 .

The entire project will be completed later this fall.
