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!

Activist Will Parrish has rejected the plea agreement he negotiated last 

week with DA David Eyster which allowed him to be released from jail. The

plea agreement stipulated that Parrish would avoid misdemeanor charges

 by pleading guilty to lesser charges, infractions, in exchange for no jail time, probation, an agreement to stay away from CalTrans Bypass construction and no jury trial. 

According to Mike Geniella, DA Eyster's press aide, "We're not interested in prosecuting protesters in a costly public trial but Mr Parrish demanded it. He clearly wants to bring the protests to the courtroom. He rejected a quick 

easy no jail time resolution & insisted that he go to trial."

At Friday's arraignment, DA Eyster filed “16 misdemeanor charges because State law requires that a separate ‘Unlawful Entry’ charge be filed for every offense when Parrish stayed 50 feet above the ground on a crane. Each 

charge carries a maximum six month jail sentence. ” The procedure of 

raising the number and severity of charges is common to force a plea 

bargain and avoid a costly trial.

PARRISH’S pre-trial hearing is set for July 22nd and a jury trial is on for August 5th. Omar 

Figueroa, a local marijuana and civil rights attorney is representing Parrish 

pro bono.

















The board of Directors of MCTV, Saturday, July 13th, unanimously decided 

to dissolve MCTV. According to a statement from Elizabeth Swanson posted on, "The Footlighters will not accept that we don't have money and are demanding back rent and other fees of roughly $44,000. Their lawyer, 

John Ruprecht, insists we have the money and he is going to find it. Any 

resonable person could see how absurd that asumption is by a quick review of the the last seven years of financial records we offered to show him. In 

response to our offer, Ruprecht made it clear he plans to to make us go 

through some more legal hassles.

Upon learning late last week that the Footlighters will not negotiate, the 

MCTV Board met on Saturday July 13, 2013 and passed a resolution to 

dissolve immediately. 

She added:  The only good thing about this situation at this time is that we 

are now free to talk with community and press.













The defense withdrew the insanity plea for Kenneth Wilkinson, 23, accused of killing his 84-year-old grandfather in Superior Court Friday, based on a report from its own 

appointed expert.

"I believe he used bath salts, methamphetamine and booze," Public 

Defender Linda Thompson, who represents Wilkinson, said , explaining that a temporary, "self-induced mental health state" doesn't meet the legal definition of insanity.

The term "bath salts" refers to a synthetic drug containing an amphetamine-like substance,  known to cause psychotic behavior and violence.

The trial starts Sept. 9, and will only address Wilkinson's factual guilt or

 innocence.  Wilkinson could face life in prison without parole if he is 

convicted of killing his grandfather, and a special circumstance that he 

tortured the elder Wilkinson .

She said she was hoping to resolve the case out of court for the family's 

sake, but hasn't reached an agreement with the DA's Office. Also at issue 

was the question of whether the elder Wilkinson was dead when he was 














Bypass Work has begun on Highway 101 south of Willits on the Haehl Overhead bridge. Traffic controls are possible from 7 to 6 p.m. weekdays with 10 minute delays .

Traffic delays of up to five minutes on Highway 101, just north of the Willits city limits. Work hours are midnight to 6 p.m. weekdays.
