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!

The City of Ukiah needs to take action soon to permanently close its former landfill and avoid "severe consequences" such as penalties and fines, the Mendocino Grand Jury recently recommended.


The Grand Jury found that the city "stopped receiving refuse at its landfill on Vichy Springs Road in 2001, but has not capped it yet.


"The law requires the landfill be capped and permanently closed within two years," the report states. "(But) it has been 12 years and the landfill is not capped, not permanently closed nor has the post maintenance plan been submitted for approval."


The GJ notes that the landfill "straddles an earthquake zone, a local watershed and two creeks that feed into the Russian River. In 1999 the city submitted a "Final Closure Plan" to the(County) Enforcement Agency representing the California Health Department, CalRecycle , and the North Coast Regional Water Board. But "for the next eight years comments and revisions went back and forth with the city missing important deadlines."


"on March 13, 2012, the city's landfill was put on the Inventory of Solid Waste Facilities Which Violate State Minimum Standards' due to chronic violations.


A response to this report is required from the Ukiah City Council within 90 days




 

 

 

 

An update on the Lakeport landslide is on the Board of Supervisors' agenda today at 9 a.m. in the board chambers at the Lake  Courthouse, in Lakeport. It will be also broadcast live on TV8. 


Recently subdivision residents have reported that there hasn't been significant land movement and that the water that was coming out of the hillside into a storm drain has nearly stopped.


The supervisors will review a memo written by a California Department of Water Resources (DWR) representative, summarizing observations and conclusions from a site visit state officials made to the slide area May 8

.

The four-page document leaves many fundamental questions still unanswered -- including why did the land begin moving and what accounts for the excess water seen in and around the unstable ground?


"at least three different factors -- geology, loading due to artificial fill and water -- may have contributed to the landslide,"  "The source(s) of water are unknown, and may never be known."


The BOS will also likely spend some time talking about last weekend's test of the subdivision's public water system.


The May 25 analysis led to the discovery of a system leak, equating to one or two gallons per minute. The rupture was fixed last Tuesday.




California officials Monday launched a new program to analyze and overhaul the state parks system, to be led by a volunteer commission. Called Parks Forward, the effort is required by the California State Parks Stewardship Act, passed last year in the wake of a financial scandal .

the commission will produce a report by the end of next year. The process will be public .


The Parks Forward initiative follows a Little Hoover Commission report released in March that recommended a number of operational changes. Among them was the idea of divesting some parks, to reduce operating expenses, and turning them over to other entities, such as local governments.

Ukiah Valley Medical Center has received the Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) designation .

According to Vice President for Patient Care Heather Van Housen, in order to achieve the NICHE designation the nursing leadership team, Van Housen included, completed a six-week course on how to build the infrastructure needed to support our aging population.

“Our next step in the process,is to evaluate how we currently care for elders and train the nursing staff on best practices .
