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!

Tuesday the Lake Board of Supervisors voted to declare a local emergency because of the continuing deterioration of a hillside that has damaged several homes in a north Lakeport subdivision and which potentially could damage more, as well as public water and sewer lines. The board voted 4-0 to approve the proclamation which  is a step toward seeking state and federal funding to relocate the sewer and water infrastructure that serve the subdivision’s homes. 

County Counsel Anita Grant added that the emergency may also activate potential funding sources for the subdivision’s homeowners, several of whom are faced with the need to demolish homes . Special District Adminstrator Dellinger estimated that in the last week week there has been a further drop of another 4 to 5 feet. 

The county has scheduled a meeting for Lakeside Heights homeowners at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at the Westlake Clubhouse, 3320 Lakeshore Blvd. 













The Ukiah City Council tonight will consider a new, five-year contract for City Manager Jane Chambers that includes a 10-percent reduction in her salary and benefits; her car allowance and merit pay were eliminated.  In January, the council approved a two-year extension while a new contract agreement was worked out with Mayor Doug Crane and Council member Mary Anne Landis. Chambers has agreed to a five-and-a-half year contract "with a full 10-percent cost reduction ..However, the contract provides that the 10 percent reduction may be modified if the council reaches agreements with other labor groups for less than this amount."  Chambers may request "a cost of living and/or merit pay increase, during her annual review (but) there are no automatic increases ."

Chambers is giving up $16,500 of merit pay, and $8,653 of executive payChambers will submit mileage logs for business travel rather than receive a fixed amount. The total compensation reduction is $24,672, with  $1,695.25 a month, directly out of her pay, and $4,329 CALpers cost savings to the city












During a discussion about removing the Brooktrails subdivision from the county's  Teeter property tax distribution program, the Mendocino Board of Supervisors voted unanimously last week to form an ad-hoc committee on other issues surrounding the subdivision. "It's an ad hoc to determine what the scope of the ad hoc will be moving forward," Mendocino Chief Deputy CEO Kyle Knopp said." It would not be Teeter-specific, but it would be Brooktrails-specific."

What prompted the Board of Supervisors to form the ad-hoc committee was the discussion that began last month about whether to remove those remaining property tax items from Teeter as well, so that the county's general fund no longer covers those costs up front for properties in default.



















The 2013 list of America's Most Endangered Rivers WAS released (WEDNESDAY) and two are in California. The report from American Rivers names the Colorado River as the most endangered, plus the Merced River received special mention.
