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!

As of yesterday, adults in Washington state are able to smoke marijuana legally , but the US Justice Department has still not offered guidance on the conflict with federal drug laws.

Prosecutors throughout the state and in Colorado have begun dismissing hundreds of misdemeanor marijuana cases, and state and local police are being retrained to arrest drivers who are high.

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire (D) met with Deputy Attorney General James Cole at the Justice Department, and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper wrote Attorney General Eric Holder a letter asking for guidance.

In both cases, the issue "is still under review."

Several universities in the two states have decided to maintain the status quo, banning students from smoking marijuana on campus since they rely on millions of dollars in federal funding, and they are worried that failure to abide by federal marijuana laws could jeopardize the money. 




The Lake Board of Supervisors gave the county’s interim county administrative officer the job on a permanent basis.

Matt Perry, 51, has held the job since last June, 

Perry was credited for helping bring the campus lease negotiations with Marymount College for the Lucerne Hotel – known as “The Castle” – to a successful conclusion.



Registration is now open for new students for the spring semester at Mendocino College, and the schedule of classes is available for download on the college's website.

The 53-page schedule contains details for every class offered through Mendocino College for the Spring 2013 semester, which begins Jan. 22. This includes classes at the Lake and Willits centers, in addition to those at the main campus in Ukiah.

Prospective students will also find a variety of classes offered online, for those needing more flexibility in their schedule.

Virginia Guleff, Vice President of Instruction and Student Services,  seeks to reassure those concerned that the arts have been cut from the college's offerings. "There seems to be a misconception that those have disappeared," she says, but a glance at the Art and Theatre sections of the schedule reveals more than 60 courses, from painting, drawing and ceramics to dance, acting, and even costume construction.The college also continues to offer courses in core subject areas in social sciences as well as science.


SNAP - the Mendocino Spay-Neuter Assistance Program has been turning away 30 percent of the people who come to us for assistance," President Dick Winkler explains.

In the past few months, SNAP has seen an unprecedented number of requests for spay and neuter services, and not enough money in the bank to help those who need it most. "Months ago, we were forced to turn many low-income people away. 

Now, for at least half of each month we have to stop providing referrals, and not even answer the phone," says Winkler.

"I think the demand for our services has dramatically increased. With the economy, I'm guessing that people don't have as much disposable income to spay their animals. People who otherwise would have paid for these services themselves are now asking for help," he continues.





Nearly 48,000 California taxpayers have tax refund checks that can't be delivered, according to the state Franchise Tax Board .

The refunds, totaling $14 million, ranging from $1 to $35,000, were returned as "undeliverable" by the U.S. Postal Service.

"The biggest problem is people move and don't change their address (with the FTB)," said FTB spokeswoman Denise Azimi.

To check your refund status or update an address, call the FTB at  (800) 852-5711 or go (click on "Where's My Refund?")



Stay Tuned for Consider This; Friday @ 9:00 AM

Join Stuart Campbell and his guest Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character. Paul Tough has written acclaimed articles about education, character and childhood development.
