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!

The Mendocino Coast  District board of directors has approved the purchase of a new ambulance based 

on a 2013 Mercedes Benz chassis.

Wayne Allen, Mendocino Hospital interim CEO, said 

the old ambulance spends too much time in the

 garage for repairs. The total for the new ambulance 

is about $92,000.

Funding for the new ambulance is coming from the 

Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation which raised 

$116,000 for the new ambulance at this year's 


 None of the funds for the new ambulance will come out of the hospital's finances. 

The board adjusted the dates of their meetings during the holidays to Dec. 5, Jan. 2 and Jan. 30. 


Ukiah Police Chief Chris Dewey told the City Council at a meeting last week that "We are not providing the level of safety to the community that we should' and asked for approval to hire more officers.

Dewey explained that 28 while positions have been authorized, due to three vacancies, two hires still in 

the academy and three officers out with longterm 

injuries, sick days or vacation, he only has 16 officers.

The unrelenting workload, coupled with the reduced 

safety, is burning out his department's officers,

 Dewey said. And his officers have been leaving for 

higher salaries in Sonoma County.

City Manager Jane Chambers told the group that she and Dewey would be coming forward with a plan that could pay for 29 officers "without increasing the 

budget at all.




CalTrans is still evaluating the bids to repave and 

restripe S. Main Street in Willits to prevent the bottleneck at the Highway 20 interchange. The bid 

estimate was $220,000. Work is not expected to start until spring.

The new design eliminates the center turn lane from Walnut St. to the intersection, allowing northbound 

traffic to remain at two lanes until the Highway 20 


The contract involves grinding the surface of the 

asphalt in the northbound lanes, installing a new layer of asphalt and painting new markings to direct traffic. The project also includes replacing all four cross 

walk markings at Highway 20.


Two Fort Bragg residents were recognized by the 

City Council for their part in saving the life of a local man. The proclamation, read by City Council member Scott Deitz, stated that on Aug. 12, Lori Arreguin 

saw a man collapse in a crosswalk and ran to his aid to find him not breathing and without a pulse. Charlie Jahelka arrived and helped perform CPR until 

medical personnel arrived. The un-named, 51-year-old man was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for specialized treatment.

Police Chief Scott Mayberry said he checked on the patient a few weeks ago and found that while he was in rehabilitation at the time, was recovering and doing well.

"They were just doing what they felt anyone should 

do," said Mayberry. "If it wasn't for these two 

individuals, that man never would have survived."






Since today, Tuesday November 5th is Election Day and the C.V. Starr Center is the polling place in Fort Bragg, The Center is having an Admission FREE Day for everyone.  You can Work out, take a swim, or join a fitness class. Hours are 5 am to 8 PM.

Free Classes available include

Cardio Spin at 8:30, Zumba at 9am and 5:30 pm, 

gentle yoga at 10:15 and aqua aerobics at 5 pm.
