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 city of Lakeport is suing Lake County and its sheriff, Frank Rivero, for access to the records information management system (RIMS) on which Rivero pulled the plug April 25.

The lawsuit alleges "breach of contract" and "breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing" asking the court to order the sheriff to give the city access to RIMS.

"No amount of damages can compensate the City for this breach, and thus the City brings this action to obtain specific performance of the contract," the suit states.

Lakeport Police rely on the computer system for dispatch-generated records, such as daily police logs, booking records and sex-registrant compliance histories.

According to the sheriff, the Lakeport PD doesn't need access to the county's RIMS, and that his review of who can log-in was necessary to protect the public.

However, the lawsuit contends , "The (Lakeport Police) relies on the records for its day-to-day operations. It uses these records to conduct investigations."








The Mendocino Board of Supervisors voted 5-0Tuesday to outsource the mental health services the county has offered for decades

They voted 4-1 with Supervisor Dan Hamburg dissenting to approve the MOU for the new Indian Casino.

The board approved a $6.7 million contract with Ortner Management Group for adult mental health services and an $8.8 million contract with Redwood Management Company, an offshoot of Redwood Children's Services.

All but two of the 15 speakers from various mental health organizations throughout the county voiced support for the measure .

Access centers inland and on the coast for clients who are 21 and older are expected to expand their hours from three days a week to "24/7, 365 days a year," with Ortner.

The contractor for children's mental health services also will offer inland and coastal access centers, with expected response times of 20 minutes to Fort Bragg and Ukiah, and 40-minute response times

to the Willits area. Currently, response times are an hour to an hour-and-a-half.

Two of the speakers who opposed the idea were from SEIU, Local 1021, the union that represents the majority of the county's workers.

SEIU representative Dave Eberly called the decision to contract out the county's mental health services "bad policy and illegal."

He went on to say "You crippled the department, declared it incapable and then moved to sell off its functions to private bidders."





The Lake District Attorney announced Monday that the CHP officer-involved shooting of Ronald Ossenberg on Oct. 24 of last year was justifiable homicide.

Ossenberg, 52, attacked the unnamed California Highway Patrol officer and the two wrestled on the ground as Ossenberg attempted to remove her firearm before she "was able to gain control of the firearm and fire one fatal shot into the body of Ossenberg."

The report states that Ossenberg , a career criminal, was homeless after his release from the Orange County Jail on Oct.3.












In addition to electing a mayor, Los Angeles voters have approved proposition limiting the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city to the original 135 and slightly raising their taxes.Proposition D had around 63 percent of the votes.

The measure was backed by both mayoral candidates. Supporters portrayed it as a balanced way to deal with neighborhood concerns.

Proposition D's major rival, Proposition F, contained no limit on the number of marijuana clinics, but it would have imposed stringent controls such as audits and background checks on employees. It was defeated by a "no" vote of around 59 percent.

Also Proposition C was passed by 76%it supportlimits on corporate rights, political spending
