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!

Mendocino County has the second worst pavement conditions in the state according to a study released today by the California State Association of Counties (CSAC)and the League of California Cities which analyzes the condition of the state's local roads system and the cost to bring it up to speed. 


Cities and counties own and maintain 81 percent of the state’s roads, and a majority of the state’s 58 counties were found to have pavement conditions that are considered “at risk”. 


if the State and local governments don't find new sources of funding to at least maintain the status quo, it will cost twice as much to reconstruct or replace local roadsstreets, bridges, sidewalks, traffic signals, curbs and storm drains .

The latest survey results identified a funding shortfall of over $82 billion over the next 10 years. You can find more info at








Scientists and fishermen are hoping this year's salmon season will be a repeat of the robust 2012 season, the best year since 2007 .

“There are a large number out there and they are doing pretty well ...” said James Phillips, an environmental scientist with the Department of Fish and Wildlife'.

Anglers and scientists got their first look at some key data last week from the 2012 fishing and spawning seasons up and down the West Coast, which is used to predict the upcoming season. That data showed that 2012 was the best since at least the early 2000s.

Last week's data presentation was the first step in the annual process of determining the length and terms of the commercial and sports salmon seasons at sea and in the rivers. Members of the Pacific Fishery Management Council, the multi-state body that sets the rules , will meet again in Tacoma, Wash., later this week, and at various coastal locations through early April.

The council is expected to make its final decision by April 11. 

Commercial fishermen in 2012 had the best year since 2004, with $13 million worth of fish hauled in, bringing in an average of $5.17 a pound, nearly double the price per pound eight years previously.




On Saturday March 9, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., uniformed Little Lake Fire Department firefighters will be delivering and installing free battery-operated smoke detectors at no charge to city and fire district residents. 

The program is designed to ensure all homes in Willits and the district are equipped with working smoke detectors.

"Although this program is designed for our community's seniors and disadvantaged families with young children, we will provide assistance where we can," Fire Chief Magann noted.

Area residents who rent a home where there are no smoke detectors, or the detectors do not work, are asked to contact the property owner or manager because  "Property owners are required by law to provide working smoke detectors in their residential rental properties," Magann says. 

"If you own your home and are unable to purchase a smoke detector, please contact our main office in Willits, phone number 459-6271 to request an appointment."








Remember the Little River Whale Festival, is this weekend March 9 & 10

Saturday only, there's the Taste of Little River as local gourmet chefs show off their specialties paired with local wines. Advance tickets: Little River Inn, $25. 



Forthright Radio; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Joy LaClaire talks with retired CIA officer turned political activist, Ray McGovern.  Ray McGovern served under 7 presidents over 27 years, presenting the morning briefing to many of them.  He'll be giving us the morning briefing on Mar. 6th here on Forthright Radio.
