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 Superior Court Judge Jeanine Nadel has ruled that MCTV must give back the Fort Bragg Footlighters building and pay the theater company $36,315., an amount Elizabeth Swanson, director of MCTV ,said will bankrupt them.


MCTV operates cable access channels 3 and 65, archiving and covering live all city and county 

meetings for those on the coast who cannot attend as well as other public affairs TV.


The two nonprofits have been battling in court since 2009 over a decision made in 2006 to give the big white building at 248 E. Laurel St. away. According to the Judge, then-Footlighters board president Bud Farley acted illegally in transferring the building to the local public access TV station in 2007. MCTV spent $100,000 renovating the building.


 

MCTV Director Elizabeth Swenson said "The Board is still in shock," and has no immediate plans except to hold a special board meeting this at the building at 6 pm Thursday night. 


The meeting is open to the public but she asks that you call ahead to 813-7046 so they can arrange for a crowd before the meeting starts.


Part 2 of this report will air Thursday night.



 

 

 

 

OCCUPY Mendocino and Occupy Ukiah will be presenting over 400 petition signatures to Mendocino County Treasurer Susan Ranochak at Board of Supervisors meeting today Tues. 14 May at 10 a.m..


 

The petition alleges that there have been suspicious foreclosures in Mendocino County CA, and that an Affidavit of Authority be sent to the foreclosing entity. 


They claim that (unnamed) Banks are not in compliance with the Homeowners Bill of Rights enacted in Jan 2013 and that there is evidence of foreclosure fraud and Mendocino County is losing money from property taxes as a result.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During a visit to the former Georgia Pacific mill site and future Noyo Center for Science and Education, the Fort Bragg City Council chose the locations for two prominent buildings.


G-P offered to sell the "chalet" to the City for $1, on the condition that it be moved from its current location by August. The chalet will be moved to City property south of the wastewater treatment plant and the whale skeleton building will be built at a location originally proposed in a conceptual site plan


Despite not being used for over a decade, the building is in excellent condition.


The group then toured the mill's former packing shed, which, at 5,000 square feet, is slightly larger than what will be needed to house the 73-foot blue whale skeleton .



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Northwest California has moved into a moderate drought designation, according to the National Weather ServiceThe weather service recently placed all of Northwest California under a “D1 Drought-Moderate” designation on the U.S. drought monitorup from the February“D0-Abnormally Dry” ranking.


”What caused it was well below normal precipitation from January through early May,” hydrologist Reginald Kennedy said.


From Jan. 1 through May 10, rainfall in Humboldt and Mendocino counties ranged from 25 to 50 percent of normal


As a result, the range lands and pastures are drying sooner, and rivers are running below normal for this time of year.The dry weather is caused by a strong ridge of high pressure in the Eastern Pacific forcing weather systems that come in across the Pacific Ocean farther north.



 

 

 

 

 

 

Ocean Protection Coalition's (OPC) Thursday, May 16th meeting has been changed to Thursday, May 30th at 7:00 P.M. at the Public Library's meeting room in Fort Bragg.


Tonight at 7 pm on MENDO MATTERS , we will be talking with Supervisor Dan Hamburg about his view of the important issues for his district and the county, then we'll be joined by CJ Holmes of Homeowners for Justice and Ellen Rosser to discuss their efforts to set up a county bank, the advantages and disadvantages.


As always, your phone calls, questions and opinions to the Willits studio at 456-9991. 


That's at  7 pm, only on KZYX
