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!

Well over 100 people filled the Little Lake Grange yesterday for an educational forum on Little Ground water and wetlands moderated bu Sheriff Tom Allman and sponsored by Save our Little Lake Valley SoLLv.


Cindy Morninglight, the Sollv coordinator, said this was one in a series of events about the wetlands; CalTrans was not invited because they did not want the event to be confrontive.  Perhaps, CalTrans would be invited for future events.


The forum was composed of three parts: speakers; discussion and the questions from the audience. David Partch , a permaculture instructor, spoke about the Little Lake Watershed, Rosamond Crowder, from SOLLV, on the wetlands and Bob Whitney spoke on the wick drains Caltrans will be using to mitigate groundwater below the construction. 

The issue, Whitney said, is that wick drains were not disclosed or referenced in CalTrans Environmental Impact Report nor has CalTrans indicated where the silt and groundwater will go, esp since it will be wicked from next to Outlet Creek, which is the habitat for three species of threatened fish.



The California Fair Political Practices Commission on Thursday fined  5th District Supervisor Dan Hamburg $9,500 for incorrectly reporting his campaign finances during the Nov. 2, 2010 election in which he won his seat, including a charge that he didn't report more than $5,000 of contributions.

Hamburg and his campaign also understated and overstated his campaign's cash balance for those reporting periods. The discrepancies included differences that ranged from $1,458 less than the actual balance to $10,316 more than the actual balance.

Hamburg wrote in an e-mail to the Daily Journal, responding to the FPPC press release"It's my belief that the vast majority of these complaints are frivolous, mostly pertaining to in-kind' donations made in support of campaign fundraising events," There was also some misreporting on my campaign that was totally unintentional but nonetheless out of compliance."

Hamburg, his campaign committee and finance manager were fined $8,000, and Hamburg was fined $1,500 for the violations. Hamburg stipulated to the charges and, according to his Thursday response, has paid the fine.








Lake County Office of Emergency Services will hold a special meeting today at 5:30 p.m, in the Lake Board of Supervisors chambers, first floor of the Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St. in Lakeport to review the worsening situation at a north Lakeport subdivision, where a landslide continues to damage homes.

 multiple public agencies are actively monitoring conditions at the site and will be available to answer questions and provide information at this meeting.

To date, eight homes have been voluntarily or mandatorily evacuated.

The Community Development Department has directed that the collapsed home at 5396 Lancaster Road be destroyed. However contractors have not been directed to begin demolition work due to the possibility that the use of heavy equipment could possibly aggravate the slide area further.

Three new additional residences along Lancaster Drive were notified of continued slide expansion and advised to voluntarily evacuate.

The sewer system continues to operate through the use of an emergency bypass system.However, continued slide movement is now threatening the temporary system.

If the sewer system is compromised, it will be necessary to cut off sewer and water service, resulting in a temporary evacuation of all homes.





The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors announced the unanimous appointment of Robert A. Scaglione , the Acting Air Control Officeras the new Air Pollution Control Officer for the County.





THE OCEAN PROTECTION COALITION (OPC) will show Gasland, the award-winning documentary film about fracking in the Fort Bragg Library Meeting Room on Saturday, May 11, from 12 noon until 2 p.m. There will be a discussion after the film. For more information: David Gurney, OPC Chair 961-1339
