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!

Albert Beltrami, 79, affectionately known as the "sixth supervisor" passed away Saturday morning. He was Mendocino County's chief administrative officer for 25 years, and stayed active long after that.

"There was no bigger servant to the people of Mendocino County, the state of California and the United States," said former county supervisor Jim Wattenburger.

"Today ... a legend in Mendocino County passed away," Mendocino Sheriff Tom Allman wrote in a Saturday statement. "He was " a person who understood the need for our leaders to work with each other instead of fighting each other." 

Funeral arrangements will be handled by The Eversole Mortuary.


The Lake County Board of Supervisors will convene a special meeting at 9am Tuesday, Nov. 26, to confirm the existence of a local emergency for Lake County due to the severe wind event that occurred Thursday and Friday.

Friday afternoon, County Administrative Officer Matt Perry, proclaimed the existence of a local emergency in Lake County.

This proclamation will allow county departments to expedite the procurement process to purchase supplies and hire outside contractors to help address the county’s responsibilities in the recovery process from the devastating high winds.

After a National Weather Service urgent wind advisory for Lake County and other portions of Northern California, upwards of 5,000 Lake county residents found themselves temporarily without power as the result of 25 separate outages.

Firefighters in Lakeport, Kelseyville, Clearlake Oaks and Upper Lake were dispatched on reports of downed power and phone lines, and damaged utility equipment, based on radio reports.



CalFire is currently fighting a fire located in a remote area north of High Glade Lookout on the Upper Lake Ranger District of the Mendocino National Forest.

It is estimated to be approximately 350 acres and is 0 percent contained.  Smoke from the fire is highly visible this afternoon in the mountains west of Interstate 5.

Engine crews, handcrews and aviation resources are currently working on containing the fire.  As winds have died down, the rate of spread has slowed, giving fire crews the opportunity to make progress.

Imitation firearms like the one a 13-year-old boy was carrying when he was shot and killed last month by a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy could no longer be made or sold in California under legislation announced Friday in Santa Rosa by Sen. Noreen Evans and Sonoma county officials.

The bill would require BB, pellet and airsoft guns to be brightly colored or translucent so that they are not mistaken for the real thing.

“A toy should look like a toy. It should not look like a lethal weapon,” Sen. Evans said.

Lawmakers plan to introduce the legislation in January .

The event was held on the one-month anniversary of Andy Lopez's death who was shot and killed Oct. 22 by a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy, reportedly after the deputy mistook Lopez's BB gun for an assault rifle.


The Ukiah Planning Commission has taken another step forward towards building a 148,000-square-foot Costco store when they  voted 3-1 Thursday to recommend that the City Council adopt an environmental impact report, a zoning change and a list of reasons why the store’s benefits outweigh its significant and unavoidable negative impacts on traffic, air quality and global climate change.

The City Council will consider the recommendations Dec. 4. Its critics say it’s wrong to spend millions of tax dollars to benefit big corporations.

Costco is expected to generate more than enough sales tax revenue over the 30 year life of the loan to offset its costs, city officials said. It's not known if it also covers the interest on the loan.

Planning Commissioner Linda Sanders, citing primarily wetland concerns, was the lone no vote on the project’s impact report.
