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!

Katrina Hamilton, the 17-year-old Laytonville girl who left her home January 12 heading to Harwood Park was found, safe yesterday by family members in Oregon.

The family is very grateful for the efforts made by the community to look for her


Mendocino's efforts to fight the federal grand jury subpoena demanding medical marijuana records have already cost the county more than its $12,000,self-imposed limit and may cost more.

Sacramento attorney William Osterhaud earlier this week submitted an invoice for $12,427 from for his legal services.

The county's contract with Osterhaudt, specifies his $300 hourly rate and $225 per hour for "associate attorneys" .

The county is due in federal court in San Francisco Feb. 19 for a hearing on its motion to quash the subpoena.

 In the event that the county decides to appeal the federal court's ruling, Parker said, the Board of Supervisors would address separately the question of further legal expenses.







More than 25 county Mental Health and Public Health workers have been moved temporarily as flood damage repair and cleanup continues at the South Dora Street building that houses those services.

According to the HHSA update, about 25 employees from the South Dora Street site are temporarily housed at the Yokayo Social Services office complex at 727, 737 and 747 S. State St., and three employees are housed at a county office in Willits at 221 S. Lenore St.

The county has so far installed two temporary modular units in the parking lot at 1120 S. Dora St., one to house the Women, Infants & Children program, and the other to house Alcohol and Other Drugs Services staff, according to the Friday update.

The flooded portion of the building is sealed off from the rest of the building as drying operations continue. Restoration will begin soon, according to the update.









The human remains discovered by a hiker January 12th have been identified as a Ft Bragg Businesswoman, Colleen Murphy, 63, who owned the Chapter and Moon restaurant on Noyo Harbor.


She had been reported as missing by one of her employees a year earlier, January 11th, 2012.

At the time of her disappearance she was noted to be despondent for various reasons;no evidence of foul play was attributed to her disappearance.

The Chief Deputy Coroner has classified Murphy's death as being a suicide as a result of a gunshot wound.




The city of Oakland told a federal magistrate Thursday that the federal government's shutdown of the nation's largest medical marijuana dispensary would damage residents' health and welfare as well as the city's revenues. The US Attorney replied that the city doesn't belong in the case.

The city claims the federal government waited too long to move against Harborside, an argument also raised by the dispensary's operators. But the threshold question Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Maria-Elena James was whether Oakland has any legal rights at stake.



"Oakland is trying to protect the health and safety of its citizens and its tax revenues," Cedric Chao, a lawyer for the city, told James.

If Harborside is closed, he said, "tens of thousands of patients, they're going to go into the streets" and buy marijuana from street dealers, Chao said. "There's going to be a big health crisis."

Oakland, meanwhile, would lose much of the $1.4 million it collects in taxes each year from Harborside and three other city-licensed dispensaries.

The magistrate did not issue a ruling and gave little indication of her own views.




A Mendocino County Superior Court jury Thursday found Glenn Hughes of Fort Bragg guilty of second degree murder in the 2011 beating death of a friend while both were staying in a coast campground.


With three prior felony convictions, Hughes faces a maximum sentence of 19 years to life in state prison. 


Superior Court Judge Ann Moorman scheduled sentencing of Hughes for March 1.
