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!

Federal prosecutors took over the case against two Lake County men  accused of running a large marijuana farm near Clearlake and sexually  abusing a 15-year-old runaway.  

Ryan Balletto, of Lakeport and Patrick Pearmain, of Clearlake were charged Monday in Eureka with conspiring to manufacture and distribute more than 

1,300 marijuana plants and using a minor in a drug operation.

The July 16th complaint reveals that the men are suspected of not only 

using the girl to trim marijuana buds but also using her for a variety of 

sexual acts and locking her in a metal box.

The sheriff's narcotics unit received a tip from the LSheriff's Office that 

Balletto was believed to be holding a missing 15-year-old girl against her will.

 After the bust, Deputies received a call from a girl saying she was the 

missing juvenile  Detectives traced her to a motel where they found her with Pearmain, along with marijuana, prescription bottles, condoms and a 

pregnancy test as well as written instructions on what to say to police to 

clear the men of sex charges.

The men will next appear in court July 24 for a detention hearing.








As we reported yesterday, Photographer Steve Eberhard of TWN was 

arrested by the CHP at about 6:30 a.m.Tuesday, Before arriving at the site, Eberhard left a message on his Caltrans contact's cell phone requesting an escort . Eberhard said he was explaining this to the first CHP officer when 

the second officer handcuffed him.

No protesters were arrested until later in the day, when the two individuals

 who were chained to the equipment unlocked themselves.

Eberhard was released from jail just after noon Tuesday, and his camera 

equipment was returned to him by the CHP. He was cited for trespassing 

and has a court date set for Aug. 23. 

Informed sources say that the escort is less about safety than it is to control what reporters can see and that the CHP has continued to obstruct reporters since the protests began.















The California Democratic Party. In a resolution passed this weekend at an executive board confab composed of about 300 peoplelaunched two messages to President Obama 

1. Tell your federal prosecutors to allow the new marijuana legalization laws enacted in Colorado and Washington to “go into effect without federal interference.”

2. End the Department of Justice “interference and raids in states with medical marijuana laws.” 

To be clear, the party is definitely NOT on record supporting legalization. 

But according to a Democratic party blogger , this is another tiny step of the mainstream politicos toward supporting the regulated use of cannabis.













 With the Lake county's sheriff appealing a judge's ruling that he – and not the county – must pay $56,000 in attorney's fees incurred in a legal battle with the 

district attorney, on Tuesday the Board of Supervisors voted to transfer 

$10,000 from his professional services fund to hire outside legal counsel.

The money will be used to defend Lake County from an appeal Rivero filed against the Supervisors.








Wednesday, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a bill that made New Hampshire the 19th state to legalize medical marijuana.

The newly enacted law will allow patients with serious illnesses to obtain up to 2 oz of marijuana from four nonprofit, state-licensed alternative treatment centers.

However, Hasan successfully removed a provision that was in the initial bill 

that would have allowed patients to grow their own marijuana at home.

Medical marijuana is officially legal in all six states that comprise 

New England.
