Thanks to everyone who helped us raise nearly $81,000 during our Fall Pledge Drive!

It was a real team effort, with literally hundreds of people pitching in to keep up the momentum. Whether you pledged your financial support, made on-air appeals, answered phones, donated food, time, or thank-you gifts, YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

Our goal was $120,000 and it was based on real needs. While we didn't get there, we all worked together in an upbeat way to express our gratitude to the community that sustains us. We made tremendous strides towards keeping KZYX moving forward in its mission of listener service. You have once again proven your commitment to keeping local public radio alive and well. Thank you!

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.
