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!

A change in the weather aided firefighters in their efforts of containment on the half dozen wildfires across California. Cooler temperatures, higher humidity and diminished winds have all provided more favorable weather conditions for firefighters. As the winds have died down, the Red Flag Warnings for high fire danger have expired. Over 4,000 firefighters remain on the frontlines of the major wildfires burning in California. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the Mendocino Board of Supervisors' Tuesday meeting agenda includes a proposal to dedicate a psychiatric emergency room to the late Dr. Doug Rosoff and an agreement regarding the impact of a casino proposed by the Pinoleville Pomo Nation. The board's meeting begins at 9 a.m., Tuesday at 501 Low Gap Road.

The board will consider setting up an optional payroll deduction to give county employees a way to raise $7,000 toward the $25,000 needed to rename a psychiatric emergency room "in remembrance of Rosoff, the county's late chief psychiatrist " 

 

 the board will also consider an agreement with the Ukiah Valley Fire District and the Pinoleville Pomo Nation on mitigation for "off-reservation impacts resulting from the tribe's casino and hotel project," to be constructed at 2150 N. State St. in Ukiah.

the casino and hotel would be built in two phases on 8.8 acres of reservation land. Phase One would include 26,000 square feet of construction with 12,000 of it dedicated to gaming and the remaining 14,000 feet would house a restaurant, a bar and lounge, a full-service deli, a retail shop and guest services.

The MOU includes a provision that the tribe would pay the county $150,000 annually for law enforcement services, with an acknowledgement that the Sheriff's Office has jurisdiction. The tribe would also pay the Sheriff's Office $30,000 every three yearsthe  Fire District $200,000 annually for staffing, and a one-time sum of $50,000 for emergency response equipment .

As payment in lieu of taxes, the county would also receive $1.5 Million over years 1 thru seven and  $400,000 annually starting in the eighth year with annual Consumer Price Index increases.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHERWOOD VALLEY RANCHERIA announced temporary agreement with Caltrans to stop bypass excavations north of East Hill Road according to The new Willits Weekly. The tribe had been prepared to file for an injunction against Caltrans in Superior Court for failure to adequately consult with the tribe about protection of Native American cultural and archeological resources..Michael Fitzgerral, tribal chairman, said representatives had walked the bypass route north of East Hill Road and questioned one of the Caltrans engineers about what plans were in effect for protecting archeological and cultural resources, but the engineer “couldn’t answer a lot of questions.”

The tribe is trying to “set up a meeting with full counsel and Caltrans to  to see if Caltrans is in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act and also to set up “a good memorandum of understanding” regarding treatment of cultural resources but, Fitzgerral said: “We’re waiting for the Caltrans lawyers to call back.” Courtesy Jennifer Poole



 

 

A new tree sit, visible to motorists on Highway 101, appeared flying a banner saying "Governor Brown-- Do the Right Thing, Please. No Bypass” as a delegation of local citizens traveled to the Governor’s office in Sacramento.

Community members insist that Caltrans routinely minimizes what is in fact a systemic pattern of violations, blaming contractors for their own malfeasance. 



 

This week Fish & Wildlife wardens local as well as from out of the area worked the Mendocino Coast and issued over 200 citations abalone and other violations.
