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 California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today warned consumers not to eat Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels as they may be linked to a multistate outbreak of hepatitis A infections.

 Scenic Fruit Company of Gresham, Oregon, announced on June 26, 2013 that it was voluntarily recalling Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels, because it has the potential to be contaminated with the Hepatitis A virus. No illnesses have been associated with Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels at this time. The outbreak investigation associated with Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend berries identified the pomegranate seeds in the blend as the likely source of the contamination. The same pomegranate seeds were also used by the Scenic Fruit Company in their bags of Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels. 

“People who have bought this product should discard it if still found in their home,” said Dr. Ron Chapman,  State Health Officer. “Anyone who has consumed this specific product in the last 14 days should contact their doctor to discuss possible hepatitis A prevention and treatment options.”


This product is sold throughout California, and was sold at the following local stores: 































 After eight days camping 50' off the ground in a crane used to install wick drains for the Willits Bypass, Will Parrish was extracted early Monday morning by the CHP. During the operation using two cherry pickers to reach Parrish, the workers covered Parrish in a blanket to keep sparks off him as they employed a saw to cut through the device that locked him to the crane and poured water over his hands to prevent him from being burned. The extraction took over an hour.

The CHP would not allow citizens on to the site to watch.  They allowed Steve Eberhart of the Willits News, under heavy guard, to photograph the process.

The former tree-sitter warbler, was arrested for trespassing. Another tree sitter remains in an ashgrove scheduled for demolition.

The extraction took place while protesters were demonstrating on the side of 101 in hopes of getting the interest of people returning from the Kate Wolf event. Many who gathered at the Parrish extraction returned to the side of 101 to continue leafleting.












The Lake County DA's Office on Friday released the findings from a two-month investigation into allegations by the sheriff that the Lakeport PD's officers illegally accessed a shared county records information system.

The result: DA Don Anderson found there was no merit to Sheriff Frank Rivero’s allegations against Lakeport Police, and that there was nothing illegal or inappropriate about the agency’s access to the the county’s records information systems – or RIMS – that it has used for years.

On April 29, Police Chief Brad Rasmussen asked Anderson to conduct a criminal investigation into the allegations Rivero had made against Lakeport Police.


On April 23, Rivero abruptly cut access to RIMS to both Lakeport Police and the Lake County Probation Department.

Despite the Board of Supervisors asking for Rivero to restore access to Lakeport Police, he has refused, and Rasmussen said the agency still doesn’t have access to the system, which has prevented them from accessing information about their own cases and calls for service handled through county dispatch.


Rasmussen, also concluded his own investigation. “We don’t believe there’s any misconduct from any of our officers as it relates to access or use of the RIMS system,” he said.


Meanwhile, the city of Lakeport in May filed a lawsuit against the county alleging breach of Lakeport Police’s dispatch contract as a result of Rivero cutting access to RIMS.


The city asked for the suit to be moved out of county, and it’s been subsequently referred to the Mendocino County Superior Court.


Rasmussen said the case is due for an initial hearing at 1:15 p.m. Monday.











Note: These regulations go into effect at the beginning of next year’s abalone season.




The California Fish and Game Commission yesterday took action to modify abalone fishery regulations along the northern California coast. Specifically, the Commission voted to reduce the annual limit to 18 abalone (previously 24), with no more than nine taken from Sonoma and Marin counties. Other changes to abalone regulations included a coast-wide start time for the fishing day of 8 a.m. and a closure at Ft. Ross in Sonoma County. 


“The new management measures we’ve adopted today will help ensure that the red abalone remains abundant on the North Coast and the popular recreational fishery there continues to thrive,” said Commission President Michael Sutton. “Our job is to keep wildlife populations in California healthy and not wait for a crisis to take action.”


Northern California red abalone are managed adaptively by the Commission, using traditional management
