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!

Researchers working primarily in the Ukiah and 

Hopland areas have discovered the key role that the western fence lizard, also known as a blue-belly, plays in cleaning Lyme disease bacteria out of

 ticks that transmit it to humans.

“It’s an incredibly simple system,” said Robert Lane, a UC Berkeley professor emeritus of medical 


Simply put, the lizard’s blood contains a protein that 

kills the Lyme disease bacteria in the gut of an 

immature western black-legged tick, which then molts into a disease-free adult tick.

While Sonoma County has more confirmed cases 

than any other countyMendocino and Humboldt counties rank second and third.

California’s overall Lyme disease infection rate of 0.2 cases per 100,000 pales compared with rates of 50 to 70 cases in New England, but without the lizard’s 

presence it would likely be higher, Lane said.

The little lizard, which kids and cats are fond of 

catching, “serves a protective function,” he said. “It’s 

reducing the likelihood that you or I would be bitten 

by an infected adult tick.”

It’s range is the far west, and primarily California.





Federal, state, and tribal officials have agreed to an 

ambitious program of cooperation to fight fish 

poaching on Mendocino County's scenic Garcia 

River, Rep. Jared Huffman announced this week.

The key to the deal is an agreement to work with 

outside law enforcement by the Manchester-Point Arena Band of Pomo, who control two key

pieces of land along the river bank. The tribe denies

 that members are major poachers of endangered 

coho salmon and steelhead trout on the river, but 

they admit that the tribal land has created jurisdictional confusion for game wardens and police, and that the tribe and local law enforcement don't have a history of cooperating.

The Garcia River has been a major focus of 

conservationists in recent decades. Private groups 

and governments have spent at least $25 million to

 preserve former timberlands and restore the habitat 

for fish and other creatures, damaged by a century of logging, farming, and other development.

Threatened populations of salmon and trout 

had begun to creep back up by the early 2000s, but 

game wardens and local landowners say the return 

of the fish caused a surge in poaching, not just 

around the tribal land, but also along private lands far upstream. That illegal fishing threatens the recovery 

of the fish spawning grounds and undermines the 

expensive restoration work.

This Thursday, October 17, the City of Fort Bragg will hold two community workshops to solicit input and 

prioritize goals and strategies for the Economic 

Development Strategy. The public

Is invited to attend one of the following sessions, 

which will be held at Fort Bragg Town Hall, 363 North Main Street, Fort Bragg: 

Either Thursday, October 17, 8:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. or

5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. 

At the workshop, City staff will provide a status report on progress towards goals and strategies listed in the 2007 Economic Development and summarize input 

received to date in the current update process. 

Refreshments will be provided.  

If you have questions , contact Jennifer Owen,  (707) 961-2827extension 109. 












Also Thursday, The American Red Cross is 

encouraging area residents to register and 

participate in the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill 

Thursday, October 17 at 10:17a.m. 

The purpose of the drill is for people to learn and 

practice what to do if they ever experience an 

earthquake. Millions of people will be participating.

Register at ShakeOut.org.




Remember, Congressman Jared Huffman is holding a telephone town hall meeting at 7 p.m. tonight to 

answer questions about efforts to end the 

government shutdown.
