For those wishing to visit Mendocino — and for those who live here — a great deal of new activity is coming out of The Mendocino County Tourism Commission, starting with a new "Visit Mendocino" website, a splashy new media campaign and a new executive director, Travis Scott, known to many for his work with the Mendocino College Foundation and the local wine industry.

Fully 94 percent of Mendocino county enterprise comprises small businesses. While we understand the importance of buying local do we really understand how hard it is to be a local business owner? What new strategies are small businesses employing to keep their doors open? How are they helping our communities to flourish?

The fast-growing Mendo Lake Food Hub, launched as a non-profit startup with support from North Coast Opportunities, is rapidly changing the way fresh produce is delivered in Mendocino and Lake counties -- and finding new markets in Sonoma county and further south.

KZYX celebrated the life and contributions of legendary broadcast engineer Ron O'Brien in a ceremony on Wednesday naming our main broadcast studio in Ron's honor. Ron's wife Mary honored KZYX by joining a ceremonial unveiling of a commemorative plaque during Jamie Roberts' long-running Radiogram program.

Mary O'Brien donated a beautiful KZYX belt buckle from Ron's personal belongings to mark the occasion. The buckle was given to loyal station supporter Jacob Bass, who called in a donation during the ceremony.
