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!

Monday morning in Boonville a large number of Fish and Game wardens set up a roadblock at the Fairgrounds where through traffic was diverted for vehicle searches. Other F&G personnel were stationed on 128 towards Philo to chase down motorists who, alerted by cell phone that there were barricades ahead, made sudden u-turns to avoid Boonville. A specially trained dog was also deployed to sniff out purloined abalone.


Memorial Day Weekend saw hundreds of divers throughout the long weekend at popular spots like Glass Beach, Todd’s Point, Jug Handle State Reserve, and Van Damme State Beach.  


Volunteers at Glass Beach from Friday through Tuesday counted nearly 2,000 divers and the equivalent of 6,000 abalone removed from those waters.  On Saturday and Sunday alone, that location netted an average 700 divers or 2,100 legally taken abalone.  County residents interested in helping or wanting to learn more about MAW, should go to www.mendoabwatch.com, send an email to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Fans of Mendocino County's Skunk Train have donated almost $20,000 so far to help clear a tunnel collapse that threatens the future of the tourist attraction. The train is Mendocino County's top tourist attraction other than parks, so tourism officials are worried about the effect of a prolonged shutdown on the local economy.


Mendocino Railway needs about $300,000 to clear rubble from an rockfall that blocked a key tunnel near Fort Bragg in April. The company is asking for donations and selling yearlong and lifetime passes for rides on the train.


The private company, which does not disclose its finances, has no reserves to pay for the repairs, VRobert Pinoli said, the train's reserves were drained after a mudslide in 2006 and the manhunt for armed fugitive Aaron Bassler in 2011 which cost the train $200,000 in lost profits.


 At the time of the collapse, all of the rail line's equipment was in Fort Bragg, so the Skunk Train is unable to offer even limited service from the Willits end of the line. 


Pinoli established a fundraising campaign through the online fundraising site GoFundMe. 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In CLEARLAKE OAKS, Community members and local agencies have partnered to get ahead of potential issues with algae buildup in Clear Lake. The volunteer effort to reduce the spread of cyanobacteria and West Nile Virus is continuing, with more phases ahead, according to Clearlake Oaks resident and “Save the Keys” member Leroy Dubrall.


Volunteer groups,and Lake County Vector Control,worked to place 1,500 feet of booms borrowed from the county, Dubrall said. 


Last year, testing in the Keys by Lake County Vector Control demonstrated that the area was a prominent breeding ground for the West Nile Virus due to the stagnant water from the large floating masses of foul-smelling cyanobacteria, a type of blue green algae.


The goal was to prevent the cyanobacteria from reaching the launch area and water district, Dubrall said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




Anderson Valley vineyards are on the front cover of the Wine Spectator, the most prestigious wine publication in America.  Are we the new Sonoma? Host Paul Lambert will be talking to Zac Robinson of Husch wines and Joe Webb winemaker at Foresight wines about the history of winemaking in Mendocino, how they cope with environmental issues, what makes the wine so good?

All on Mendo Matters, tonight at 7 pm, with your questions as always at 456-9991.
