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!

Members of the Save the Redwoods League are 

hoping to restore the former Orick Mill site, which they recently purchased from Green Diamond for $2 


”That property has been on the league's radar for quite some time now,” Save the Redwoods League 

Manager Christine Aralia said. “It's  like ground zero

 for some of the tallest trees in the world.”

The 125-acre site lies on the boundary of Redwood National 

and State Parks between two of the largest old growth groves in the world at the junction of U.S. Highway 101 and Bald Hills Road -- the access road to Tall Trees Grove.

The group plans to restore the meadow for Roosevelt elk that roam nearby, as well as the streams for 


The Orick sawmill began operating in 1954 and 

processed redwoods for nearly 60 years before 

closing in October 2009.

The group will need to fund environmental studies on groundwater depth and wetlands delineation in 

order to find out what the land can sustain. She said 

the group will also be running ideas for the land's use by the Yurok Tribe and the community of Orick.

The neighboring park is home to 45 percent of the

 world's old-growth redwood forest. Alongside elk, it also shelters black bears, bobcats, mountain lions, marbled 

murrelets and northern spotted owls.

Since 1918, the group has purchased more than 

190,000 acres of redwood forest and associated land. 





Linda Williams in the 

Willits News reports that 

the Mendocino County employment situation has rebounded to about the same level it was in 2009. The 39,720 persons employed in Mendocino County as of August 2013 is about the 

same as in 2009 in the immediate aftermath of the economic crash.

Mendocino County's 

unemployment rate is 7.3 percent, improved from the 9.1 percent in Aug. 2012.



















As contract negotiations continue between the Ukiah Valley Fire District and the Ukiah Fire Department, 

members of the Ukiah City Council have asked staff to prepare data showing exactly how much money the city has spent on public safety for the past several 


Benj Thomas said the requested financial data 

should go back several years."And our own 

understanding might be enhanced if the staff developing the material for us has a chance to meet with us 

and review it with us," Thomas said.

The UVFD and UFD have been responding together as one entity for more than a year without an over-all agreement. Last month, Chief John Bartlett 

proposed to City manager Chambers that the UVFD

 could provide a "full-service fire department" for $2.1 million.

Though the city's budget includes $2.4 million for fire services, Chambers said "not all of the money in the budget is available to go toward the contract without 

impacting other costs"

Crane said the two committees will be meeting Friday at 10 a.m. in Conference Room 5 at the Ukiah Civic 

Center Annex. The meeting is open to the public.






The city of Willits has received a citation from the 

California Public Health because a sample of City 

water showed exceeded levels of Haloacetic Acid, a disinfectant byproduct of the treatment process. At the same time, the water plant cannot meet demand and consumers are asked to conserve water by not 

washing cars or watering landscape.




The next meeting of the Willits Community Alliance 


be Monday, October 14, 2013, 6:30 PM at the Willits

City Council Chambers, featuring speakers Jed & 

Carlin Diamond, April Tweddell, and Mary Zellachild. 

Meetings are open to anyone who lives in the 95490 area

and are interested in our community.




The Mendocino Women’s Political Coalition, AAUW & Ukiah Daily 

Journal are sponsoring a Candidates Forum at Ukiah Civic Center at 6 pm Tuesday, October 15th featuring the Ukiah School Board, 

Ukiah Fire District, Millview Water District and 

Mendocino County Russian River Control District.
