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!

Tuesday. the Lake County Board of Supervisors will get an update on the local emergency declared after last month's windstorm, discuss reports on a senior mobile home park rent control initiative and consider the final reading on a proposed lake sales tax proposal.


The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, in  Lakeport. It will be broadcast live on TV8.


The board will get an update on the windstorm that hit  Nov. 21 and 22, and consider terminating the local emergency declared in a special meeting last week.


At 9:15 a.m., the board will consider departmental reports regarding the senior mobile home park rent control initiative that has received enough signatures to go on the June 2014 ballot. The iniative called for rent raises to be based on the percentage of social security increases for mobile home parks where 80% of tenant units contained at lease one person over 65.


At 11 a.m., the board will consider  the “Lake County Clear Lake Use Tax Ordinance” – that would place a half-percent sales tax on next June's ballot.

The tax would collect an estimated $2.4 million annually, for water quality programs, including efforts to improve Clear Lake.




Ukiah Schools will be serving an evening meal to many students beginning January in a program recently approved by the district's board of trustees.


Food Services Director Les Ridgway said the after-school supper program will be funded by the Child and Adult Care Food Program, which he notes is intended to "provide increased food security to children in at-risk schools."


Ridgway noted that implementing the program in the UUSD would not only benefit its students, but provide additional revenue for the district because it will be reimbursed for every meal.


The new program "could generate as much as $475,000 with a food cost of around 35 percent,".

"It will be a win-win," he said. "It will provide more food security for the students, and give staff members who may not qualify for benefits more hours."


He said the meals will be provided to the students at no cost to them.


 



 

During a recent presentation at Humboldt State University, a medicinal marijuana researcher, Jeffrey Raber said in a recent study he found that up to 70 percent of the pesticides found on a marijuana bud can transfer to the smoke being inhaled. 


Raber -- who holds a PhD in chemistry from USC and runs The Werc Shop, a medical cannabis testing laboratory in LA -- was the latest speaker in the Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research's lecture series.


Raber said it's important to remember that there are no controls over what's sprayed on marijuana crops. And, people can't wash a bud before putting it in their pipe. The body also has filters in place for things that are ingested, he said, but not for what's inhaled.


Raber said about 10 percent of the marijuana that comes through his laboratory for testing registers positive for pesticides. Those samples are only from medical marijuana dispensaries , he said. 

”I think all that says is we really, really need some serious regulations within California, especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “


Humboldt Sheriff Mike Downey said his deputies have been finding massive amounts of high-powered pesticides at marijuana gardens , many of which could be heading for collectives and, ultimately, to patients.




Roots of Motive Power will hold its annual Holiday Express on Saturday, December 7, from 12 noon to 5 pm at 420 East Commercial Street in Willits. Santa will arrive in style on a restored locomotive and free rides are available to all.


Next door, The Mendocino County Museum will welcome all with an Open House: free admission all day and free family activities from 12 noon on.
