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!

Frank Hartzell of the Fort Bragg Advocate has written a lengthy and authoritative analysis of the Medocino Redwood companies 80 year Timber plan and why it baffles local officials. I'll quote from it.


 

In 2000, the Mendocino Redwood Company (MRC) asked a half-dozen government agencies to create the regulatory framework for its 80-year plan and simplify existing regulatory processes with a single document and integrated plan.


After a full decade of work, documents totaling more than 3,000 pages were presented to the public late last month for an 88-day comment period. To put it in perspective, the Bible is less than 2000 pages.


 

Most of the 20-some people on hand last week for a public meeting in Fort Bragg about the plan were too bemused by the gargantuan result of the state and federal "streamlining effort" to be much for or against it. 


"Based on what I've heard tonight, and the 2,600 pages back on the counter, I want to formally request an extension of at least 60 days, to April 21, 2013 for the community to have adequate time to review all this," said David Gurney, who writes a local news blog. "Giving the public a few short months more doesn't seem too much for a document that will cover 80 years into the future and has taken a dozen years for all these people here to create."


 

The plan is available online; the address will be on KZYX's news blog later this am.

The end of year reports from County staff had both good and bad aspects.


The county budget has a reserve of $4.5 million, according to Chief Deputy CEO Kyle Knopp, about half of what is recommended for the county's size and resources, and its debt rating with Standard & Poors is BBB-, junk bonds.


The county also appropriated $1 million more  to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, some of it attributable to the loss of income from the 9.31 program which was discontinued in March.


"Structural problems" were also identified in the county's Teeter program, prompting a discussion about removing the Brooktrails subdivision from its rolls.


General Services Agency Director Kristen McMenomey said the agency had saved the county more than $600,000 by consolidating 13 county facilities, including the elimination of five leased buildings.


Almost every county department is participating in the county's wellness plan, according to Human Resources Director Pat Meek.


"The numbers are down in Juvenile Hall," said Chief Probation Officer Jim Brown. "We're also seeing kids with mental health issues on the rise."



 

 

The Ukiah City Council voted (5-0) for staff to proceed with drafting a program for downtown Ukiah for Outdoor Dining, after comments from the owners of Schat's, Patrona and Saucy. The Design Review Board would oversee the actual materials and design of future outdoor dining. 


 

Willits Economic LocaLization (WELL) is launching a "Pay It Forward" fund as one strategy for investing in the local economy.

"Pay It Forward seeks donations from the community for a revolving fund earmarked exclusively for the purpose of assisting local enterprises that meet the triple bottom line: good for the planet, people, and profit," says WELL's Madge Strong.

Donations to the fund are tax-deductible . "There will not be any "profit". However, if the fund's investment in a enterprise is re-paid, the fund will 'pay it forward' to other recipients."

WELL encourages new or expanding businesses to apply for funding.  "Proposals will be reviewed by the WELL Coordinating Committee," 

To donate, or apply for a loan, contact WELL at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or mail P.O. Box 42, Willits 95490.
