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!

Incumbent Humboldt County DA Paul Gallegos has announced that he won't be running for re-election.

In a Nov. 20 press release, Gallegos said he believes “we have accomplished more than I ever thought we would be able to do over the last 11 years” but has decided not to run for a fourth term.

Gallegos did not reveal what his post-DA work plans are.

Gallegos’ tenure has been controversial, particularly during his first two terms.His term ends in January of 2015. So far, only one candidate – former County Prosecutor Arnie Klein, who was hired by Gallegos in 2006 – has announced candidacy in the upcoming election.



The Dollar Tree application - after being changed - will be heard again in Fort Bragg. Applicant Robert Affinito wants to convert a building at 825 S. Franklin St. into a Dollar Tree store.

At the Nov. 13 Planning Commission meeting, he noted that the building is located in the Highway Visitor Commercial Zone, which is consistent with the proposed use.

Rather than have a loading zone along Franklin Street, he asked to change the loading area to the adjacent property to the south, which he also owns. Staff felt the change in scope was significant enough to re-notice the application and recirculate the California Environmental Quality Act documents with a revised project description.

would contradict the Coastal General Plan goals of preserving and strengthening the vitality of commerce in the central business district and sustaining local business.


Last week Mendocino Major Crimes Task Force Commander Rich Russell estimated that half of Mendocino County's 87,400 residents are engaged in growing, distributing and preparing pot for market.

That's drawn some fire from some.

“It is a disservice to the many thousands of law-abiding people in the county to make such unsubstantiated claims,” said Supervisor John McCowen.

Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman also said the estimate is inflated. Allman declined to offer a counter estimate, saying those kinds of guesses damage law enforcement's credibility.

Ukiah defense attorney Bob Boyd agrees with Allman.

“I don't think there's any basis for what he's saying,” he said. “It seems he has a very jaded view of the community he serves.”

Russell stands by his estimate which includes seasonal workers who trim pot plants and hydroponic businesses that sell cultivation materials.

HSU economics professor Erick Eschker said half seems like a large number for his county.

Russell said he has no statistical information to back his figure. John Kuhry, executive director of the Economic Development and Financing Corp., said he wouldn't be surprised if half of the population has some kind of involvement in its production.

Russell is a state Department of Justice employee.


The LoBucks market located at the south end of Willits will close at the end of the year following the bankruptcy filing this week by parent company C&K Market.

The Brookings Oregon-based family owned company said the decision to file the bankruptcy petition was prompted by the need to resolve debt issues, address legacy costs and to sell or close underperforming stores. About 34 employees will be impacted; the company said it would do its best to accommodate employees by offering positions within the company and working with workforce services in the areas affected.
