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 Mendocino Board of Supervisors yesterday formalized pricing for county buildings, placing Veterans for Peace in the same category as commercial enterprises at $90 per day, but not in the free category granted to the VFW, American Legion, Boy Scouts etc.


KZYX's John Sakowicz was at the Board of Supervisors and brought us this interview with Steve Scalmanini, Secretary of the Mendocino Chapter of Veterans for Peace.


(Paraphrasing) This makes us feel like second class citizens. Veterans For Peace opposes the use of force as a policy for resolving conflicts.



 

 

 

 

The Department of Homeland Security’s former chief privacy officer said that nationwide surveillance efforts by a little known agency represents a “sea change in the way that the government interacts with the general public.”

The Wall Street Journal  reported that the  National Counterterrorism Center, based in an unmarked building in McLean, Va., has been granted sweeping new authority to store and monitor massive databases by the Justice Department earlier this year. The guidelines allow the NCTC, for the first time, to keep data about innocent U.S. citizens for up to five years, using “predictive pattern-matching,” to analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior. 

The data the counterterrorism center has access to, according to the Journal, includes “entire government databases—flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students and many others.”

Notably, the Journal reports that these changes also allow databases about U.S. civilians to be handed over to foreign governments for analysis, presumably so that they too can attempt to determine future criminal actions.

 As the Journal’s Julia Angwin notes, the risk is that “innocent behavior gets misunderstood—say, a man buying chemicals (for a child's science fair) and a timer (for the sprinkler) sets off false alarms.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At its meeting today, the Ukiah City Council will be discussing the success of a temporary outdoor dining platform built for a restaurant and whether a program should be implemented for the rest of downtown.


An outdoor dining and bike corral facility was built alongside Patrona Restaurant last year as part of a "pilot project."


 "The staff feels that the outdoor dining portion of the project has been a success and a permanent program should be considered."


The outdoor dining platform was built in September of 2011 and since then, Patrona has hired eight additional, full-time staff members and seen an 8-percent increase in sales. 


However, staff notes that the bike corral is not being used enough to justify it taking up an automobile parking space. 


"Staff is recommending that the council authorize staff to draft guidelines for an outdoor dining program for downtown." The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 300 Seminary Avenue.


 

The CPUC is holding a meeting on smart meters and PGE's fees for opting out in SANTA ROSA tomorrow, Dec 20, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. At the Steel Lane Community Center

Joy LaClaire’s guest is Matt Kennard.,author of  IRREGULAR ARMY:  HOW THE US MILITARY RECRUITED NEO-NAZIS, GANG MEMBERS, AND CRIMINALS TO FIGHT THE WAR ON TERROR.

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
