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!

St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake has announced the 

completion of phase two of the transformation of its 

emergency department, with all the upgraded 

facilities and services now available.

With an emphasis on faster access to top-quality care, the new emergency department is ready to fully serve the community, the hospital reported

 Wednesday night.

Improvements include the addition of 4,100 square 

feet, 12 private patient care rooms including two 

equipped for trauma care, new entrances and waiting areas, cutting-edge equipment and support systems upgrades.

The enhanced emergency department also provides

 increased patient care staff, and has upgraded 

laboratory and other services.


The Buddy Eller homeless shelter in Ukiah may have to close during the summer months if a $120,000 

shortfall isn't filled, according to  Director Jacqueline Williams. The center lost roughly half of its budget 

because it didn't provide enough counseling services to satisfy Federal officials, although it had regularly

 received funding in the past.

Friday at an open house, Ms Williams highlighted the shelter's services, including beds for those 

recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, beds for 

the mentally ill, help with job training in its gardens 

and kitchen and access to stable housing.

Part of the problem is that the shelter no longer 

provides services for those with mental illnesses, 

making Ukiah's shelter less competitive in a world 

where it needed more of an edge to vie nationally for a shrinking pot of federal dollars.

The grant matched local funding for the shelter for up to $230,000 annually. The local funding comes from 

the Mendocino Department of Social Services has

steadily declined to $117,000, where it's been for the past two fiscal years.

For more information or to contribute, call Janette 

Wright , 462-6290, or Debi Smith, 462-1934. Thanks to Tiffany Revelle at the UDJ.




Arcata residents who use an excessive amount of 

electricity can expect to see a spike in their 

November utility bill because Arcata's 'grow tax' has been implemented by PG&E.

The measure assesses a 45 percent tax on 'residences that use more than 600 percent of the 'energy baseline -- or the energy used to power three average homes -- energy consumption not uncommon to indoor marijuana grows.

Customers whose bills exceed $720 in the winter 

with gas heat, or $1,728 in the winter with electric 

heat will be affected.

The fee will be collected by PG&E, and the projected $1 million in revenue will be put in the city's general 

fund, according to a staff report. The measure was 

drafted after the city learned its residential electricity use from 2000 to 2006 increased by 30 percent. Of

the 9,500 residential meters in Arcata, 1,262 

exceeded 300 percent of the baseline, and 633 

exceeded the 600 percent mark.

The city expects to receive revenue from the tax in






California’s annual Dungeness crab sport fishery

opens statewide this Saturday, Nov. 2.

“Crab populations appear to be strong coming off 

another record-setting year in the commercial fishery,” said

 California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Senior Scientist Pete Kalvass. “However, crab in 

local areas of northern California above Cape 

Mendocino may be somewhat underweight for the 

first few weeks of the season due to a late molt.”

There is no limit to the number of pots or nets that 

can be fished recreationally, except when fishing 

from a public fishing pier where only two pots may be used.

Recreational crabbers may kep up to 10 Dungeness crabs per day of either sex, or six crabs if fishing

from a party boat south of Mendocino County.

No Dungeness crab may be taken from San 

Francisco or San Pablo bays, which are important

crab nursery areas.

The recreational size limit for Dungeness crab is five and three-quarter inches measured across the shell, directly in front of and excluding the lateral spines.

Dungeness crabs generally prefer cooler northern 

and central California waters and are uncommon 

south of Point Conception.




Tonight, the Environmental Protection Information 

Center (EPIC) is throwing it's 36th birthday party with the annual EPIC Fall Celebration at the Mateel 

Community Center, in Redway, California. 

The EPIC Fall Celebration is one of the cornerstone 

fundraising and community outreach events for EPICThe doors  will open at 6 PM for cocktails and dinner at 6:30 PM, followed by the evening program starting at 7:30 PM. At 9 PM music follows.

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah
