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!

This morning at 10 am,  James Gore, assistant chief of The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in California and the Gold Ridge and Sotoyome Resource Conservation Districts along with a number of local agencies, nonprofit groups, agribusinesses and landowners will make an announcement to improve fish and salmon habitat in five northern California watersheds.


Actions are being announced that will empower government and private partners to increase salmonid populations while also sustaining productive agricultural operations.  California is one of three western states included in the announcement.

 

 

 

At a sparsely attended meeting at its headquarters, Mendocino Redwood Company's President and chief Forester, Mike Jani, announced that the public comment period on their 80 year Habitat Plan has been extended 60 days to April 1st.




 

 

 

 

The Clearlake Oaks man who escaped from a minimum security jail Sunday is back in custody.

David Brown was arrested about 11:10 p.m. Wednesday .

On Wednesday night, Lake Sheriff’s Deputies provided information as to where David Brown might be hiding to  Officers with the Clearlake PD.


At approximately 11:00 pm, deputies and three Clearlake Police Department Officers responded to a residence in the 4000 block of West 40th in the city of Clearlake where Brown was arrested without incident.

Prior to his escape, Brown was slated for release this December.

 



According to the Willits News, the legal wrangling between Brooktrails and Willits has cost local taxpayers more than $651,000. Since the trial in Sonoma County has yet to be scheduled, the costs to taxpayers will continue to mount.

To date the lawsuit has cost Willits taxpayers $373,041, of which Attorney's fees comprise $327,386 .

In Brooktrails the cost to date is $278,388. Attorney's fees comprise $165,463 plus $43,934 in accounting costs and $32,187 in engineering costs.

Brooktrails filed its lawsuit against Willits over Willits sewer plant in 2010. Brooktrails and Willits have had a contractual relationship for sewage handling since 1967. 

Since 1975 the agreement has provided Brooktrails with the "right to review, make suggestions and approve for their adequacy, plans, specifications and cost estimates prior to their approval by the city council."

Brooktrails contends, that during the design and construction of the $25 million sewer plant, the city failed to comply with this and other provisions of the contract.

These actions, according to Brooktrails, will result in unnecessarily high sewage rates for its customers.Willits contends that it followed the terms of the contract.
