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 children's room at the Ukiah library on North Main Street is shut down until further notice after county employees found mold in a window, a wall and the ceiling, according to Mendocino Librarian Mindy Kittay.

Friday, someone reported seeing mold in a window of the library, and county inspectors arrived and found mold in windows throughout the library, and "extensive" mold in the children's library.

All events in the children's library are canceled until further notice.

A librarian said she hoped the county could work on the problem between Dec. 23 and 29, when the library will be closed for Christmas, and that the library staff could use the time to rearrange the library temporarily to make do for the closure.

For more information, call the Ukiah library at 463-4490, or visit mendolibrary.org.

Thanks to Tiffany Revelle and the UDJ.

 

Linda Williams in the Willits News reports that the City of Willits is considering mandatory rationing unless the rains begin soon and Brooktrails Township is down to 80 days supply of water.

The Willits city council was advised there was a maximum of 467 acre feet of water stored in its two reservoirs. Between pipe breaks and people running water to prevent them, the water usage increased more than doubled this week to 1.2 million gallons (3.7 acre-feet).  However, the actual amount of usable water in the Willits reservoirs is unknown since the project to measure the amount of silt in city reservoirs was dropped after the last water crisis in 2008 ended. 

The council is considering going to a Phase 3 Water Emergency which requires each residence to limit water usage to no more than 250 gallons per day. Commercial businesses would be required to reduce usage by 15 percent . It also prohibits all nonessential water use.

Brooktrails Township has called for voluntary water reductions for township residents. 

Willits has received only 2.84 inches of rain since Oct. 1, the beginning of the winter water year. This compares with 22.56 for the same period in 2012.

 

Citing a potential threat to public health,  the FDA has announced that it will ask pharmaceutical companies to voluntarily stop labeling drugs important for treating human infection as acceptable for growth promotion in animals such as penicillins and tetracyclines.

If the drug companies sign on — and two major companies have already signaled they will — using those antibiotics to promote growth in animals would be illegal. Prescriptions would be required to use the drugs for animal illnesses.

In September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released sobering estimates that more than 23,000 people a year are dying from drug-resistant infections.

The new guidance will give the companies three years to comply.

Some advocates pushing to rid the animal food supply of antibiotics said the FDA did not go far enough. Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York, a microbiologist, said the FDA should have made the action mandatory

 

What was once an underground celebration after the cannabis harvest up in the hills became a public event this weekend at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds.

Organizers expected the 10th annual Emerald Cup to draw about 5,000 people each day to learn about organic, outdoor marijuana production, visit more than 170 vendors hawking paraphernalia and listen to panels discussing issues from legalization to business tactics.

The Cup culminates in an honors program recognizing the best of Northern California's outdoor, organic pot.

The first-place winner receives a two-week vacation at a marijuana-friendly resort in Jamaica.

Several dispensary owners from the area said that the Emerald Cup stands apart because of its reputation for fair judging standards.
