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 U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday rejected Gov. 

Brown's final legal maneuver to avoid shedding 

nearly 10,000 more inmates from our overcrowded 


In a one-line order, the justices refused to review a three-judge appellate panel's most recent orders requiring California to meet strict deadlines to reduce the 

inmate population, effectively forcing the Brown 

administration to follow through with its legislative plan to solve the problem.

Last month, the three-judge panel gave the state a temporary reprieve until 

the end of January to deal with the overcrowding 

issue, ordering state officials and inmates' lawyers to meet .

The governor and Legislature agreed recently to address the overcrowding orders by trying to use mental health and drug treatment programs to limit the 

number of inmates being sent to the state's prisons 

for new crimes.

In their September order, the judges instructed state officials and inmates' advocates to focus on several 

categories, including elderly and juvenile inmates, 

immigration violators, the seriously ill and those 

serving certain three-strikes sentences.





According to the Ukiah Daily Journal, Mendocino 

County Librarian Mindy Kittay and the Friends of the 

Ukiah Library's board of directors are at odds over the board's decision to put away $75,000 of its $115,000 budget to fund a new library building which Kittay 

says "There are no plans to build a new library.

Kittay urged the board to use the money to fund the 

Ukiah branch's more immediate needs for books and materials, computers, staff training, a new meeting 

room and new carpeting.

Six members of the 11-person board voted to put the $75,000 in a capital 

investment fund. To take any of that amount out of the fund will require a supermajority of eight votes.

Kittay urged the board to launch a capital campaign 

and put aside $10,000 to seed fundraising efforts 

specifically for a new library building .

She explained that roughly 70 percent of the Ukiah 

branch's books and computers are upwards of 10 

years old and in need of upgrading and asked for a monthly book allowance of $2,000.










Supervisors approved an additional $20,000 for the 

winterization efforts of the Lakeside Heights sub division landslide Tuesday.

The Lake Board of Supervisors (BOS) took up the 

extra agenda item because of the urgency to take 

immediate action.

Monday morning, Public Works Director Scott De 

Leon and Community Development Director Rick 

Coel inspected the work done for winterization, and 

before the end of the day, De Leon drafted a 

memorandum for additional funds because of 

significant cracks in the northern and southern areas of the landslide.

"If something isn't done, water is surely going to 

infiltrate into those cracks," De Leon said.

At the Sept. 17 BOS meeting, supervisors approved a little more than $64,000 in order to remove two 

collapsed structures and prepare the area for the 

rainy season.












A Laytonville woman thrown from a pickup during a 

DUI-related crash in a remote area west of Ukiah walked 

through the night to get help for herself and the 

injured driver, said the CHP.

Driver Carlos Sandoval, 26, of Ukiah lost control of a 

2002 Toyota Tundra, which rolled 300 feet down a 

steep embankment.

Passenger Dakota Sanderson, 23, suffering from a 

broken left arm, left the crash to find help and got to a home almost 7 hours later at about 6 a.m. Sunday.

Officers found Sandoval, suffering a broken leg, at the crash. They arrested him on suspicion of drunken 

driving and he was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. He was in fair condition Monday .

Ms Sanderson was taken to Ukiah Valley Medical Center.















The Redwood Coast Senior Center is accepting 

applications for six open positions on their Board of 

Directors. The deadline is this Friday, October 18. 

Interviews will be held the following week. The 

application is available on the web site at, or at the Center.
