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!

Forecasters are now predicting more rain for Mendocino & Lake County – with the possibility of snow – over the next few days .

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning overnight for Mendocino & Lake County.

According to the National Weather Service, rain amounts are now forecast to total one to two inches by Friday, with snow levels predicted to fall once again to around the 2,500 foot elevation.

Chances for thunderstorms, rain and intermittent hail are all possible  as the rains taper off and cool weather returns in the evening.

Showers are likely throughout Thursday, with forecasters predicting daytime highs in the low 50s .

Current models forecast a cloudy day on Friday, with highs in the mid-50s and daytime temperatures increasing throughout the weekend, with Sunday sunny and in the high 60's.

Authorities last week arrested a second woman in the ongoing investigation of the high-speed chase last week during which one of the suspects shot at the pursuing deputy sheriff's car.

Camara Paige, 24, of Ukiah, was arrested Friday on suspicion of harboring or concealing a fugitive by giving the accused shooter, Walter Miller, a ride from the suspects' abandoned car on Highway 253 to the Best Western hotel on Orchard Avenue .

Skaggs was arrested the following morning while walking on South State Street. Miller surrendered himself to SWAT agents.

Paige was released after posting bail and is due in court April 3 to face the charge.
















At Wednesday's meeting of the Willits school board, Interim Superintendent Debra Pearson will inform the board that since initial estimates of Average Daily Attendance were optimistic, revenues are lower than anticipated.

Also, the federal sequestration that went into effect March 1, will result in an additional loss of $65,000 if the situation remains unchanged.

March 4, State Superintendent Tom Torlakson named WUSD, along with 123 other local educational agencies, as being at risk financially.

The district was placed in "qualified certification" status for the fourth consecutive reporting period. The district has been working closely with the Mendocino County Office of Education to return the district to solvency by the 2014-2015 school year.

The district has already outlined $750,000 in budget cuts for the 2013-2014 school year. Those cuts which include layoffs of teachers and classified staff are set to be approved at tonight's meeting and officials will also begin the difficult task of cutting another $750,000 for the next school year.









The National Marine Fisheries Service announced last week's  that it would lower the amount of the winter run that fishermen could harvest, from 13.7 percent in 2012 to 12.9 percent. The fishing industry is already facing restricted seasons everywhere south of Point Arena.

Roger Thomas, who has run a passenger fishing vessel out of Sausalito, said recreational fishing boats like his will very likely be forced off the water during June and July, normally the high season for vacationers and tourists. 

Commercial fishermen will probably face even more time off the water than last year, but when and how much is not yet set.

“It's going to be a real economic hurt,” said Thomas, who is also chairman of the Golden Gate Salmon Association, “but we realize that we have to meet the Endangered Species Act and we have to accept it.”




Join me at 7 pm tonight for Mendo Matters' special town Hall on Mendocino Redwood Company's 80 year habitat Plan. MRC guests Mike Jani, Chief Forester, John Ramaley, Forest Manager, and Sarah Billig, Stewardship Mgr, will answer any and all of your questions. Andrew Orahoske, from EPIC, will be on the line to ask questions as well. Call in at 456-9991
