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 US Army Corps of engineers has sent a letter to CalTrans stating that 

they are out of compliance on the mitigation portion of the Willits Bypass. 

Specifically, the chief of the regulatory division wrote " CT has failed to 

complete mitigation site preparation as required. T C is concerned that 

future required mitigation will be behind schedule because of CTs failure to 

retain a qual contractor to accomplish the required work in a timely manner."


CT must response within 7 days, by 9.1 schedule a mtg between C staff and CT hydologists to discuss potential secondary effects from wick drains on 

wetland hydrology, hold a Meeting with Hicks on Sept 6th, 11 am to 1pm in the SF office and complete mitigation site prep by 10.1.


The Corps considers non - comp as a serious breach of permit conditions.

CT faces Up to $27 k fines plus inj thru fed court & restoration may be  required by a third party & CT sued to pay for it  


Copies went to : Huffman, US Atty, EPA, Cal Dept of Fish & wildlife, North Coast 

water, and Malcolm Doughtery, head of CT.


Caltrans sent this response: "We are committed to the 2,000 acres of 

mitigation to protect the environment in the Little Lake Valley. We are taking all requested steps to ensure compliance ."




 

 

A petition was filed in Mendocino Superior Court Friday challenging the 

permit issued by the County authorizing Mendocino Forest Products, to 

remove more than 880,000 cubic yards from its property , saying it violated California CEQA and the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act. The petition was filed by the Willits Environmental Center and Keep the Code.


While Mendocino Forest Products Company owns the property, Rau and 

Associates was the project applicant as the contracting firm used by the 

Harris Quarry Expansion Project. 


The petition seeks to have the county stop work at the site, set aside its 

prior permit and to conduct appropriate environmental and surface mining 

act reviews as required by law.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 10am this morning, the BOS, will continue their discussion on the Appeal 

of the State Parks - Ten Mile Dune ProjectThe Recommended 

Action  is that the Board deny the appeal and allow State Parks to tear 

out the remnants of the Haul Road in Ft Bragg.



 

 

 

 

Running out of money to fight wildfires at the peak of the season, the U.S. 

Forest Service is diverting $600 million from timber, recreation and other 

areas to fill the gap.


after spending $967 million so far this year, The agency was down to $50 

million Forest Service spokesman Larry Chambers said, which is only 

enough to pay for a few days.


The U.S. Forest Service now plans to take a portion of the timber payments 

it has promised or paid out to 22 states because of sequestration.


California would lose nearly $2.2 million. 




 

 

 

U.S. District judge Lawrence J. O'Neill ruled late Thursday that water can be released from Trinity Reservoir to prevent a salmon kill in the lower Klamath River, but the amount of water involved will be less than the federal 

government asked for.


The ruling from Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill comes after farmers in the San 

Joaquin Valley sued the federal government over the releases of water.


In Thursday's ruling, ONeill stated that a change in environmental conditions and the federal position has meant that two-thirds less water than expected was required.


Environmental groups, fishing organizations and Indian tribes supported the release of the water, and the judge said the modified decision should leave both sides happy.


Advocates for the two sides, for the most part, agreed.



 

 

 

 

 Remember, tomorrow, TUESDAY, AUG. 27 is the First day of school for the Mendocino School District, so drive extra carefully.
