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!

After six years of ignoring the issue, The Willits city council has agreed to 

reopen the issue of development restrictions due to lack of water.  Recently, a new elder care facility learned that it will not be allowed to proceed unless the policy changes.

Mayor Holly Madrigal requested the city's standing Water Committee bring a recommendation back to the council.

In 2006, the Willits City Council directed its planning department not to 

approve any project proposal requiring more than four single family 

residential water connections. Following a requirement of the Department of Public HealthWest Yost and Associates conducted an extensive study and concluded the city's water supply was insufficient, the city's infrastructure 

was aging and leaking and the water plant was too small for the current 


Since 2007, city has made progress towards correcting the water treatment plant deficiencies with its $5 million upgrade currently underway. Despite 

these and other changes, city staff did not recommend the city change its 

current policy of limiting development.






 Lake County Vector Control District said that 11 more mosquito samples 

and one dead bird have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

The mosquitoes were collected in Lakeport, Kelseyville, Clearlake Oaks, 

Anderson Marsh and Upper Lake, while the dead bird was  found in Lower


Jamesina Scott, Ph.D., district manager of Lake Vector Control said  "West Nile Virus activity nearly doubled in the last week,”  “In previous years, peak activity has been in mid-August to mid September, and that’s still two weeks away. I expect to see a lot more West Nile Virus this year.”

West Nile Virus has been detected in 33 California counties so far this year. Symptoms of the mild form of West Nile Virus include fever, headache, tiredness, body aches and swollen lymph glands. While the illness can last only a few days, even healthy people have reported being sick for several weeks,. The severe form of West Nile Virus can be fatal. Residents are encouraged to bring along mosquito repellant if they attend an outdoor event after 

5 p.m., Scott said.







Lake Transit Authority reported that a plan is in place for the resumption of 

bus services that have been curtailed due to a transit strike, with the goal 

being to have services fully restored by the first week of September.

Last week, Teamsters Local Union 665 members voted to go out on an 

indefinite strike until they settle a new three-year contract with Paratransit Services, the  nonprofit that operates Lake 


General Manager Mark Wall said  service “will increase substantially” on 

Aug. 16, and all routes and most schedules will be restored by Aug. 26.  All services – including Saturday operation – will be fully restored by Sept. 3, Wall said.

Through Aug. 15, curtailed service levels will remain in place, Wall said.














Mendocino County now has its own local, toll-free suicide prevention hotline number giving residents access to immediate, confidential, high-quality and effective prevention and crisis intervention services. 

 1-855-587-6373  is available 24/7. 

This  effort to reduce suicides resulted from a collaboration of the North Bay Suicide Prevention Project and Mendocino County Behavioral Health. 


If you are in a crisis or worried about someone who may be suicidal call the North Bay Suicide Prevention Hotline toll free at 1-855-587-6373
