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 Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit Wednesday against 

San Benito County, challenging the approval of the Indian Wells Oil Project.

The project is slated to be about 9 miles south from Pinnacles National 

Park on the Monterey County border. The anti-oil fracking group says the project has big implications for Monterey County because it will use a large amount of water from Salinas Valley.

Fifteen news oil wells are included in the initial phase of the oil project, 

according to the Center.

The Center for Biological Diversity says the project would be located in the Salinas Valley watershed, in an area used by wildlife like the California 

condor. The group says they are filing the suit under CEQA in Monterey

 Superior Court because they say it poses a risk to endangered species and possible threat to water quality and climate concerns.

Cyclic steam injection is not a form of oil fracking, but environmentalists 

argue it's another dangerous form of extreme oil production.








Nearly 29,000 inmates in California state prisons refused meals for the third day Wednesday during a protest that extended to two-thirds of the 33 prisons across the state and all four private out-of-state facilities where California sends inmates.

Thousands of prisoners also refused to attend their work assignments for a 

third day, and state officials were bracing for a long-term strike.

This hunger strike could become the largest in state history, since the largest previously was 6,000.

The protest is centered on the state's aggressive solitary confinement 

practices, but it appeared to have attracted support from many prisoners 

with their own demands for changes in prison conditions.

Ten inmates who began refusing meals July 1 are now under medical 

observation at High Desert State Prison near the Nevada border.

J. Clark Kelso, the federal receiver who oversees prison healthcare, said 

the inmates would be referred to a physician if they go 17 days without food or show signs of distress.




The work inside Skunk Train Tunnel No. 1 to repair the damage caused by a major rock fall in April is "progressing nicely," according to Chief Skunk Robert Pinoli.

No firm date has been set to complete repairs needed to return the trains to active service. As of Saturday, the contractor has installed about 80 bolts 

between 6 and 8 feet long into the rock. The bolts hold about 1200 sq ft  of 

reinforcing wire mesh in place. A wet cement slurry will then be sprayed 

onto the rock and mesh to form a stabilizing barrier. Pinoli says a series of 

test "shotcrete" panels will be installed this week, with the expectation "we 

will begin applications of shotcrete inside the tunnel shortly thereafter."

The repairs are being made possible by donations and the $300,000 option money paid by the Save the Redwoods League in June.



State water regulators have fined a pair of Mendocino County landowners 

$30,000 for an alleged illegal reservoir that diverted water from a stream 

west of Ukiah.

Since at least 2007, Steven Rector and Anne Carole Frocteau have been 

diverting an unnamed tributary of the Navarro River on their 

67-acre Comptche-Ukiah Road property.

“They illegally constructed a dam in a stream,” said Stormer Feiler, an 

environmental scientist with the water board. “It was poorly constructed and appeared to be something that could fail.”

The .45 acre reservoir created by the earthen dam was used for gardening and 

marijuana cultivation, according to Feiler.

Rector, 51, is currently on trial in federal court in Kansas for conspiracy to 

distribute more than a ton of marijuanaas part of a major California-Kansas drug ring. Anne Carole Foucteau-Rectoridentified as a Fort Bragg chiropractorhas not been charged in any criminal case. The state could have imposed a $125,530 fine









The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors will host a budget presentation from 10:30am to noon today, Friday at the Fort Bragg Town Hall. The 

presentation is the first in a series of five presentations to be given in each 

supervisorial district before the annual county budget hearings begin Sept. 9
