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!

Lake County News - an internet based news service - is suing Lake County's sheriff for discrimination.

John Jensen and Elizabeth Larson – doing business as Lake County News – allege that Sheriff Frank Rivero is retaliating against them because he is angry of their critical coverage of him.

That includes articles in which the journalists uncovered that Rivero was under investigation by District Attorney Don Anderson for allegedly lying about a 2008 shooting in which Rivero was involved while a deputy.

“LCN was removed from The Lake County Sheriff's media distribution list after publishing articles critical of Sheriff Rivero. That means our competitors receive press releases with important public safety information, but LCN does not.,” Larson said.

LCN's lawsuit also alleges that the sheriff’s office fails to comply with the California Public Records Act .

The CPRA allows journalists and private citizens to gain access to information and documents held by governmental agencies,” said Paul Boylan, an attorney specializing in open government issues who is representing Jensen and Larson. “The law is very clear: public officials cannot pick and choose which media outlets they communicate with based on the content of what is being reported,” Boylan said.

Authorities released the name of the bicyclist killed on foggy Highway 29 Tuesday morning. Lloyd Knight, 59 died after being struck by two different vehicles around 7:45 a.m. .

The first driver to hit Knight as he rode northbound on the highway fled the scene in her Chevrolet Suburban but went to the Clearlake Police Department about 90 minutes later . Aimee Hubbard, 25, was arrested on a felony charge of hit-and-run causing injury.

As Knight lay on the roadway , two drivers pulled over to render aid when John Weeks, driving a Toyota Prius northbound, allegedly struck Knight as he tried to get up. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to fire radio reports the fog nearly caused several other collisions.

Hubbard, a nursing assistant, was booked into the Lake County Jail on a charge of hit and run causing injury or death. Her bail was set at $50,000.

If you're in the Cloverdale area Thursday and you hear aircraft above you, it's the Western Air Defense Sector conducting air defense exercise Felix Hawk . Felix Hawk is designed to test WADS’ intercept and identification procedures for a variety of scenarios involving possible hostile aircraft.

Residents in the Cloverdale and Garberville areas may observe F-16 aircraft, C-21, and Cessna 182 aircraft participating in the exercise between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

In the event of inclement weather the exercise will be canceled.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, NORAD fighters have responded to more than 5,000 possible air threats in the United States, Canada and Alaska, and have flown more than 62,500 sorties with the support of Airborne Warning and Control System and air-to-air-refueling aircraft.

Robby Beasley, convicted last month of the murders of a Maine couple was sentenced to two life terms on Tuesday plus 23 years to be served before the life sentences.

Judge Andrew Blum sentenced him without the possibility of parole for the shooting deaths of Frank and Yvette Maddox.

Beasley told the court that his former codefendant Elijah McKay was " a pathological liar,” and a sociopath who can't tell the truth. “The truth is, I was wrongly convicted based on lies and manipulation, not truth and facts,” said Beasley.

His attorney filed an appeal of Beasley's conviction during the Tuesday afternoon sentencing.

Stay tuned for Community & Ecology; Thursday @ 9:00 AM Cal Winslow talks with Karina Nielsen and William Lemos on “Our Oceans.” Nielsen is a Professor of Biology at Sonoma State University specializing in marine community ecology. William Lemos, Ph.D. is a member of the Mendocino Land Trust and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
