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 gets mixed grades from a new report detailing how the state's counties are performing in children's health and well-being. 

the report is prepared by Children Now, and the report measures 28 key indicators .The report indicates that the 21,061 children living in Mendocino County scored in the top third in four categories, the middle third in 14 categories and in the bottom third in eight.

The categories at the bottom include: third-graders 

who read grade level; seventh-graders who meet or exceed state standards in

math ; children who are in a healthy weight zone ; and children in the child welfare system who have stability in their placement.

The four categories the county scored in the top third are: high school science classes taught by a "highly qualified teacher" ; eligible students who eat free or reduced-price breakfasts ; asthmatic children who have been given an asthma management program and children in the child welfare system who have visited a dentist in the last year .

Despite a national recall and meningitis scare there have been no reported cases in Mendocino County, according to Heather Van Housen, patient care executive at Ukiah Valley Medical Center.

UVMC was one of the locations that received a lot shipment of steroids that has been voluntarily recalled from the manufacturerThe drug is called methylprednisolone acetate, and was used as a pain medication for certain patients of Dr. Michael Young, the UVMC pain specialist. The drug is often used to treat pain and swelling associated with arthritis or other joint diseases.

The letter sent to patients of Dr. Young advises them to call him if they have questions, but more importantly to head to the emergency room if they have symptoms.


October is deer mating season – which means deer are on the move and less cautious about darting out into the road. 

The CHP advises that drivers should be extra vigilant and follow these tips: 
·        Be particularly attentive between sunset and midnight, the hours shortly before and after sunrise, and in foggy conditions. Most deer-vehicle collisions occur during these times. 
·        Drive carefully in areas known to have high deer populations. Places where roads divide agricultural fields or streams from forestland are particularly dangerous. 
·        If you see a deer, slow down. Others are probably nearby. 
·        Use high-beam headlights when there is no oncoming traffic. The high beams reflect their eyes.


In recognition of National Fire Prevention Week CAL FIRE Mendocino  is opening its fire stations to the public this Saturday October 13, 2012 from 10am – 2pm.  The public is invited to visit  any of our stations within the county and have a tour of the station and see how our firefighters live and work while on duty.  


CAL FIRE Woodlands Fire Station and Mendocino Volunteer Fire Department will be co-hosting their “Open House” at Mendocino Fire Station located at 44700 Little Lake Road, Mendocino.  




Takes on the World; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

A new poll by the bipartisan Council on Global Affairs tracking opinions of Americans on US foreign policy  has produced some surprising results which may have an impact on the presidential elections. Today,  Jeff Blankfort will discuss the findings of the survey and their implications  with its project director, Dina Smeltz.
