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 Mendo Board of Supes yesterday discussed the possible development of a clean energy program in the county's unincorporated areas,  and monitoring of the Marine Life Protection Act .


 At 11 a.m., the board considered developing a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program.  The General Services Administration "has discovered the option of piggybacking off of another city/county competitive process which would eliminate the need and the expense of going out for proposal," according to a staff report.

If approved, it would allow property owners to assess themselves on their property taxes for the cost of energy-efficient and water-saving improvements, such as solar panels, low-flow toilets, double-pained windows, weather stripping, rain-collection systems, caulking or even Energy STAR appliances.

At 1:30 p.m., the board heard an update on the North Coast Marine Protected Area monitoring planning from the marine protected area Monitoring Enterprise, a program of the California Ocean Science Trust. 

Also on the board's agenda but not timed is a proposal to approve a "memorandum of agreement" between the U.S. Forest Service, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the county of Mendocino to  help improve interagency relationships by facilitating early and frequent communication between the defined federal agencies and counties to foster a more productive partnership .




The California Public Utilities Commission began a two week meeting on November 2nd  to discuss the Smartmeter Op Out regulation they accepted last year. The meeting includes the Department of Ratepayer Advocates, The Utility Reform Network (TURN,) Aglet, the Emf Safety Network, The Center for Electro Smog, and others. 

Currently many stubborn Mendocino residents, who refused the so called 'punitive' opt out charges in their bills have received 15 and 3 day notice of power or gas cut off . 

The discussion includes: unresolved health concerns, the initial installation cost of analog meters, the right to self read and avoid Opt Out monthly costs, and the double charge of opt out plus the rate increase that pays for the smartmeters and the roll out.



There are many facets to the issue, but the most controversial is the health impacts to those individuals who may have become electro hypersensitive because of Smartmeters, and can not live in proximity of a meter.  




The next in a series of community meetings on the new Clearlake General Plan will take place this weekend.

The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 10., in the council chambers at Clearlake City Hall, 14050 Olympic Drive.

The Nov. 10 meeting will focus on the 11 different elements of the general plan and the community’s preference on different future d

More information about the plan and the process to create it can be found at .




At the Mendocino Coast Hospital, a Tai Ji class Thursdays, 5:15-6 pm, and first and third Fridays, 3:30 pm, Neva Cannon Room. 8-week series, prepaid: $48. Tai Ji aims to lengthen life and maintain youthful vitality, while improving balance, flexibility, and muscle strength. Young, old, healthy, infirm, all can benefit. Join at any time. Instructor: Theresa Kirke.

Takes on the World; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Jeff Blankfort will bring you the latest statewide and local election returns and then open KZYX's phone lines to get your takes on Tuesday's presidential and statewide voting results. That's a KZYX post-election special with Takes on the World host, Jeff Blankfort, at 9 AM, Wednesday, Nov. 7.
