Thanks to everyone who helped us raise nearly $81,000 during our Fall Pledge Drive!

It was a real team effort, with literally hundreds of people pitching in to keep up the momentum. Whether you pledged your financial support, made on-air appeals, answered phones, donated food, time, or thank-you gifts, YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

Our goal was $120,000 and it was based on real needs. While we didn't get there, we all worked together in an upbeat way to express our gratitude to the community that sustains us. We made tremendous strides towards keeping KZYX moving forward in its mission of listener service. You have once again proven your commitment to keeping local public radio alive and well. Thank you!

Some Humboldt vets are saying that the recent canine parvovirus outbreak in Humboldt County is being spread by unvaccinated animals, generally 

belonging to the homeless.

The puppies that are in town are generally unvaccinated. They walk about 

town, and they shed the virus on the sidewalk, on the street,” Garberville 

Redway Veterinary Manager Kim McPherson said. “Every person who walks

 down the street has the opportunity to pick that virus up on their shoes and 

take it home to their farm animals or to their puppies.”

McPherson and state Animal Health veterinarian Dr. Richard Peterson asked 

the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors for assistance with an increasing 

number of canine parvovirus cases in the county.

Eureka Police Chief Murl Harpham said canine parvovirus has been a 

problem in Eureka homeless encampments for the past seven or eight months.



A sample of mosquitoes collected last week near Upper Lake tested positive 

for West Nile virus (WNV), the second such reading since June 19th. Officials have issued an advisory for residents to use a repellant to fight off mosquitoes or to stay indoors at night.


Jamesina Scott, manager of the Lake Vector Control District (LCVCD), stated. "Statewide, we've seen the number of WNV-positive mosquito samples double from 70 to 124 in just the last week."

Officials encourage residents to use an insect repellant containing an EPA-registered ingredient such as DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR353.

West Nile virus has been detected in 24 California counties so far this year, and one person in Sacramento reportedly died.

Up to 20 percent of people infected experience symptoms that range from fatigue, fever, headache, body aches, rash and even nausea and vomiting. Less than 1 percent of cases suffer severe illness.

Lake County officials urge residents who would like help with a mosquito problem to call 263-4770 or visit the district website at 

With endangered whales congregating in the food-rich waters around the Farallon Islands, the U.S. Coast Guard is asking large 

ships to slow down in hopes of avoiding fatal collisions with the huge animals.

The Coast Guard’s message, broadcast over marine band radio, asks heavy 

vessels — including tankers, container and cruise ships — to approach and exit San Francisco Bay at no more than 10 knots, about half their normal speed. 

The slowdown is intended to reduce ship strikes on endangered blue and 

humpback whales, said Dan Howard, superintendent of the Cordell Bank 

National Marine Sanctuary, which covers 529 square miles off the Sonoma 

and Marin county coast.

NOAA requested the slowdown message after biologists stationed on 

Southeast Farallon Island 30 miles outside the Golden Gate counted a 

remarkable concentration of whales in late June.

The leviathans are of concern to scientists because their northeast Pacific 

population of about 2,000 has not rebounded in the 43 years since commercial whaling was ended in the United States.

During a one-hour break in the fog on June 27, the Farallon Island biologists counted 33 

humpback whales, six blues and one fin whale, Howard said. The following 

day, they spotted 25 humpbacks, seven blue whales, one fin and one gray 


In mid-June, officials from the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito helped confirm 

that a juvenile female humpback whale that washed ashore at Point Reyes 

National Seashore was killed by a ship strike. Fractured vertebrae and 

bruising indicated the cause of death, said Jim Oswald, a spokesman for the 
















Last Wednesday, Humboldt Drug Task Force agents assisted by the sheriff's 

office and the CHP arrested Matthew Walker, age 33, of Alderpoint when he 

attempted to trade four pounds of high-grade marijuana and one pound of hashish for a travel trailer. 

Approximately two weeks ago, a citizen who was selling a travel trailer on Craigslist alerted authorities that someone wanted to trade "herb" for his travel trailer. When agents drove to Walker's residence in Alderpoint with a search warrantthey located 304 growing marijuana plants being grown in greenhouses and outside on the property. Walker's bail was set at $55,000.
