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!

Two members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors failed to push through a proposal to repeal the county's guidelines on medical marijuana cultivation and possession.

After listening for nearly two hours to medical marijuana lawyers, patients and advocates, the board voted 5-0 to set it aside.

But the supervisors voted to move forward with two additional proposals: The first would prohibit the use of unoccupied residential buildings to grow marijuana. And the second would establish a “working group” that would include patients, law enforcement and a wide range of people involved in the issue to help the county shape its medical marijuana policies.

The more than two-hour-long hearing came before a packed audience that spilled into the hallway with rows of folding chairs set up to accommodate the crowd.

Many in the audience wore pink stickers that read, “Don't Criminalize Patients.”




Tuesday, The Mendocino Supervisors hired a San Francisco criminal attorney named William Osterhoudt to advise them in their response to the federal subpoena. 

According to Osterhoudt’s website, he graduated from Hastings law school, then he became a staff attorney with the Legal Aid Society of San Francisco. He continued to act as an Assistant Federal Public Defender through 1971, when he entered private practice in San Francisco. " He has been lead counsel in proceedings in the US District Court for the Northern California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and has handled federal appeals in the Second, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits. He maintains a substantial appellate practice in the California Court of Appeal with its various appellate districts.”

The AVA speculates that "with Osterhoudt’s extensive criminal defense experience in federal crimes, it’s hard to avoid the implication that the County may be anticipating criminal charges from the feds."    






project that will combine businesses and apartments on a vacant lot at 528 N. State St. back for permit approval this week at the Ukiah Planning Commission.

The project includes two buildings with commercial space on the ground floor and apartments on the second floor. The apartments are a mix of studios and one-bedrooms.

A third building will include just apartments, and a fourth building will house storage units and laundry facilities. The project includes a total of 13 apartments.

The plan was received with praise and excitement by the commission when it was originally presented in May.




The Mendocino County Mental Health Board is inviting community members interested in the county mental health care system and the well-being of consumers to apply for vacant seats on the Mental Health Board.  Applicants are appointed by the Board of Supervisors.  

Of the fifteen seats on the Mental Health Board, seven are presently unfilled. Meetings are held every month and board member mileage is reimbursed.  Their next meeting is on Wednesday, December 19 at 9:30 am in the Public Health building, 1120 S. Dora Street in Ukiah.

For information about application forms, go to the website at or contact Tari Rogers at (707) 472-2355

For more information about Board member responsibilities and activities, please contact  Board Chair Jim Shaw at (707) 813-1555.  






Mendocino County Public Broadcasting will hold an open public meeting of its Community Advisory Board on Tuesday December 18 at 6 PM at the meeting room of the Jay Epstein State Farm Insurance Agency at 488 N. State St. Ukiah (just north of the Coffee Critic).  This is an open public meeting to advise the KZYX Board of Directors "with respect to whether the programming and other policies of such station are meeting the needs of the communities served by the station."
