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!

The California State Sheriff's Association has sent a letter to VP Joe Biden stating that "all law abiding citizens ...have the right to... own and bear firearms . This right shall not be infringed."


They go on to say that "more attention to the mentally ill...must be addressed" since " the national Instant Criminal Background system (NICS) is woefully underdeveloped, participation is not mandatory, only 25% nof felony convictions are listed and that only 28 states entered dangerous mental health issues into the system. 


"If we are to avoid future tragedies, mental health issues in the context of gun ownership must be central to the national discussion."


Kzyx was given a copy of the CSSA letter by Sheriff Tom Allman , a member of CSSA, during his interview on Mendo Matters last Thursday.



 

 

 

Counsels for Mendo County & asst US Atty Richard Cheng agreed to have the hearing on the marijuana subpoena scheduled for Tues Feb 19 changed to Tues, Match 19th at 2:30 pm . Hon Richard Seeborg, US Dist Judge granted the request.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More than 150 people gathered in Kelseyville last week to hear  about public safety issues following the murder last month of a man during a robbery as well as a rash of burglaries.

Supervisor Rob Brown organized and led the town hall, held at Kelseyville High School.

Brown said he had been talking with CHP chief Baarts about installing cameras at the Live Oak intersection, with technology available to allow them to identify stolen vehicles based on license plates. 

That, in addition to initiating new Neighborhood Watch groups, were among the suggestions Brown offered the community .

A key concern for local officials is the impact of AB 109, the legislation for correctional realignment, which is sending prisoners who normally would have been in state prison to county jails. There currently are 181 parolees in the county. 

State Parole Agent John McNunn suggested: “I would recommend you get a gun and get some training.”

He said District Attorney Don Anderson said one thing that has come out of Seagrave’s murder is that it has brought the community together.

Brown said he appreciated – and was impressed by – the community turnout, and wants to have another meeting in the future.



 

 

A new coalitionCEQA Works, is an effort to shield California’s landmark environmental law from radical reforms that would limit public input into land use planning, threaten public health, and weaken environmental protections. 


CEQA Works already includes many of the state’s most prominent advocacy organizations, including Center for Biological Diversity, Natural Resources Defense Council, and Sierra Club California; the California Teamsters Public Affairs Council, and United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW);  the Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment; and the League of Women Voters of California. 


Although some in Sacramento have called for weakening the law’s key tenets, a recent poll showed that 64% of California voters oppose weakening CEQA.

Willits Mayor Holly Madrigal will share her observations on local office during tonight's meeting of the Willits Community Alliance. She'll also discuss changes going on with the city and describe her new Mayoral Initiative.
