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!

Tune in to WILDOAK LIVING, the radio program about living sustainably and building community in Mendocino County and beyond.

On Monday, November 11, at 9:00 AM Pacific Time:

Bats, White-Nose Syndrome, and "Flying Blind"
and
Grief and the Holidays

Join me for what will surely be two fascinating conversations.

In the first program segment, I talk about Grief and the Holidays. The holiday season can be an especially difficult period for those of us grieving a loss, whether it is the death of a beloved person or animal companion, the end of an important relationship, or when we anticipate the impact of climate change.

A lot of people who are grieving a loss, especially a recent one, find the relentlessly upbeat tone of the Holidays to be, at the very least, a distracting annoyance, and at worst, a very painful reminder that they don't feel like celebrating anything at such a time in their lives. I talk with Dick Lumaghi, the Bereavement Coordinator for Hospice of Ukiah about simple strategies to help at such a difficult time.

In our second segment, we talk about Bats. Are Colony Collapse Disorder and Climate Change related? Will the white-nose syndrome that has killed upwards of seven million bats over the past seven years decimate entire bat species or will it claim the most vulnerable while leaving those that remain stronger for the encounter?

These are questions Don Mitchell pondered from his Vermont home as white-nose syndrome spread from the near-by cave--in which it was first discovered in 2006--to hibernation sites up and down the East Coast.

His book Flying Blind: One Man's Adventures Battling Buckthorn, Making Peace with Authority and Creating a Home for Endangered Bats is Mitchell's story of bats navigating this deadly epidemic and his efforts--however tenuous and unsure--to help the bats survive. It is also the story of one man's quite unexpected flight into his own pitch-black past, where he encountered his authoritarian father, the hippie youth he once was and the man and father he would ultimately become. Quick to note that he's no scientist, Don is a knowledgable layman who has read extensively about bats and has signficant firsthand knowledge of habitat management as a means to assisting struggling bat populations.

Don Mitchell is a novelist, essayist, and sometime screenwriter whose most recent books are The Nature Notebooks (a novel) and a guidebook to Vermont in the Fodor's/Compass American series.  He's also the architect and builder of over a dozen low-cost, energy-efficient structures on Treleven Farm, and a shepherd with thirty-five years' experience managing a flock of sheep there.
