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!

24 year old woman named Warbler who has been living and working in the Willits valley for the past four years is living about fifty feet off the ground as one of the protests against the Willits Bypass. She received tree climbing instructions from Cascadia Forest Defenders who also helped her get settled into the tree located at the south end of the new planned bypass not far from the current Highway 101. KZYX News spoke to her about living in a tree.




According to the LATimes, CALFIRE hid $3.6 million from legal settlements rather than depositing it into the state’s cash-strapped general fund as required.  

During the same period, CALFIRE collected $150 from each rural household for fire prevention.

For seven years, Cal Fire placed the money with the nonprofit California District Attorneys Assn., paying the group to hold it. Cal Fire used the cash for equipment purchases and training purposes.

The practice ended last year amid questions about whether the fund was legal.
Cal Fire’s own regulations state these types of legal settlements should go into the state general fund. 

The Department of Finance is planning an investigation.

In the wake of lat years' parks department $20 million scandal, the Department of Finance looked for secret funds in other departments but did not find Cal Fire’s account .Auditors found more than $200 million that agencies had squirreled away as lawmakers cut the state budget.





The Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association says it will no longer produce the Old Time Bluegrass Festival at Anderson Marsh State   Park, instead they are focusing on keeping the park open.

The nonprofit AMIA is presently negotiating an agreement with the state that will ensure that the park remains open.

The AMIA Board regretfully made the decision to cancel upcoming bluegrass festivals in favor of other fundraisers that do not require the large amount of time and number of volunteers that need to be coordinated for the bluegrass festival.   

The Bluegrass Festival was postponed in 2012 when AMIA found that the effort necessary to keep the park open made it impossible for AMIA volunteers to also do all that it took for them to put on the festival.

According to the AMIA announcement, much work still needs to be done to both insure that the park remains open and that needed deferred maintenance is performed to insure that the park remains safe and accessible to the public.  

Sept. 14, the day that the bluegrass festival would have been held this year, a benefit concert is being planned to help AMIA with its fundraising efforts.



Forthright Radio; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Joy LaClaire talks with native Afghani , Tamim Ansary, author of   GAMES WITHOUT RULES: THE OFTEN INTERRUPTED HISTORY OF AFGHANISTAN.
