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!

Mourad Gabriel, the researcher who determined that rat poison spread around illegal marijuana grows is harming the local Pacific fisher population has found the same effects on birds. 


Gabriel, senior ecologist and co-founder of the Integral Ecology Research Center, is furthering his original research using a $25,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Gabriel said he is hoping to test around 90 owls on the North Coast .


Spotted owls in southern Oregon and Northern California have been declining at the rate of 5 percent to 15 percent a year from 1990 to 2008.


”We have tested around eight to 10 owls so far, and about half of those have come back with exposure to rodenticide,” Gabriel said.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Philo mother earlier has pleaded guilty in Superior Court to a felony charge of child endangerment stemming from her 2-year-old son's arrival at Ukiah Medical Center with methamphetamine and a life-threatening amount of alcohol in his system, according to the DA's office.


Samantha Delvalle, 22, is due back in Court June 28 for sentencing.


She faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison, but her sentence could range anywhere from probation with mandatory parenting classes to prison time

.

Delvalle's boyfriend, Raymond Mabery, 21, also faces a felony charge of child endangerment and is due in court June 20 . Mabery's attorney, Justin Petersen, said the District Attorney's Office has offered plea bargains, adding that he hopes they will offer a misdemeanor instead.



 

 

The California Senate approved a package of bills Wednesday that would tighten the regulation of firearms by outlawing detachable and large-capacity magazines, keeping track of people who buy ammunition and widening the category of offenders prohibited from owning guns for 10 years.


Republicans, a minority in the Senate, voted against the bills, arguing that they would make it harder for law-abiding citizens to access weapons while doing little to combat crime. 

.

• SB 47 bans so-called "bullet buttons" used to get around existing laws banning detachable magazines.

• SB 53 creates new state permits that require background checks for buyers of ammunition.

• SB 374 bans detachable magazines in rifles.

• SB 396 prohibits possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

• SB 567  changes the definition of certain kinds of shotguns to make them assault weapons.

• SB 683 requires all gun buyers to take a firearm safety class.

• SB 755  increases the number of crimes that result in a 10-year ban on being allowed to own a gun.


 

The bills now move to the Assembly.



 

 

 

 

 

Twelve Mendocino High School students had the rare opportunity to assist local scientists in unearthing the bones of a 75-foot blue whale last week


Wearing waders and rubber gloves, the students helped uncover, transport, reassemble and clean parts of the spine and one fin.


The whale was struck by the propellers of a research vessel in October 2009 and died. Shortly after the collision, the carcass washed ashore south of the Mendocino Botanical Gardens.


 

Sheila Semans, project specialist for the California Coastal Conservancy, is working with the City of Fort Bragg to eventually place the reassembled skeleton in the planned marine science and education center on the Georgia Pacific property, west of Highway 1.
