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!

Over 5,000 firefighters are on the frontlines of the 10 major wildfires burning 

in California. While firefighters are making good progress, weather conditions

 could pose a challenge in the coming days as gusty winds, dry lightning and

 high temperatures are forecasted. 

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning due to the 

possibility of dry lightning in combination with gusty winds for coastal 

counties from Mendocino south to Monterey. The warning goes into effect 

today at midnight and is expected to last through Wednesday.

A Fire Weather Watch for lightning has also been issued starting this 

morning for Northern California. The thunderstorms are expected to initially 

be dry, which will heighten the fire danger, but should begin to bring some

 rainfall by midweek. 


Sunnier conditions, with no expectations of precipitation, are forecast for

next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Lake County transit workers voted Thursday to call off their strike and

 unconditionally return to work, just days before they were to be replaced 

by strikebreakers.

Teamsters union representative Mark Gleason said drivers hoped to restore 

full public transportation services to Lake County immediately. Christie 

Scheffer, chief operating officer of Paratransit Services, said service would 

not be restored that quickly.

She said there are administrative concerns to work out, such as how many

 of the striking employees will be taken back.

The company has hired and trained new employees who were expected to 

start driving buses on Friday. The new employees are expected to be 

retained, Scheffer said.he company has five days to work out a variety of

 issues. The strike over wages has been in effect since July 29.

Four routes, operated by managers and employees who crossed picket 

lines, have been in operation.






The Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office reached a plea agreement

 with a convicted killer that avoids a new trial in a case tarnished by a

 forensic pathologist’s conflicting testimony.

Timothy Elliott entered a guilty plea to voluntary manslaughter after

 Mendocino Judge Ann Moorman granted him a new trial, citing lack of 

credibility on the part of Dr. Jason Trent, a contract medical examiner for 

Mendocino and Lake counties.

Elliott, 40, of Hopland, has served five years of a 16 years-to-life sentence 

for the slaying and now faces a maximum of seven years in prison when 

sentenced Sept. 10Dr. Trent no longer serves as Mendocino County’s 

medical examiner.

Trent is being replaced after he recanted contradictory statements he 

made in court on the Elliot case, that caused a retrial and lower sentence.

Moorman said he had recanted his testimony under oath and then reversed

 it again under oath.

 The county gave Trent 90 days notice and signed another contractor,

 Dr. Jacqueline Benjamin who starts Sept. 18. Benjamin,  is currently a 

pathologist at Keck Hospital of USC Pathology in Los Angeles. The 

contract provides for payment of $1,240 per standard autopsy and $2,000 

per forensic autopsy in Ukiah, with added payment for autopsies in Willits 

and Fort Bragg.





















Mendocino  Superior Court Judge Cindee F. Mayfield  Friday ordered the 

county to issue a death certificate and burial permit for Supervisor Dan 

Hamburg's deceased wife, Carrie J. Hamburg, that allows her to stay 

buried on the family's property.

Despite the county's initial rejection of the family's application for a permit 

and death certificate, Deputy County Counsel Brina Latkin told the court 

that "the county had no objection to the issuance of the burial permit and 

death certificate."

Mayfield directed the Mendocino Public Health and registrar  to issue the 

burial permit for the site where Hamburg's wife is currently buried and a 

death certificate based on Carrie Hamburg's wishes, written in her will, 

according to the order.

Supervisor Hamburg sued the county over the rejection of the family's 

application, and Friday announced he will drop the lawsuit.
