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 Mendocino County Supervisors has announced it will host a budget

 presentation from 10:30 a.m. to noon Friday at the Fort Bragg Town Hall.

The presentation is the first in a series of five presentations to be given in 

each of the county's five supervisorial districts before the annual county 

budget hearings begin Sept. 9.

The League of Women Voters of Mendocino President Jane Person is 

sponsoring the event.

Fourth District Supervisor Dan Gjerde, whose district includes Fort Bragg, 

volunteered to have his district receive the first of the budget presentations.

"In times when revenues are stagnant, the balanced budget represents an 

organization that is constantly looking for new ways to achieve its goals at

 lower costs," Gjerde said.


The cities of Ukiah, Willits and Fort Bragg are suing the county of 


and Auditor-Controller Meredith Ford for hundreds of thousands of dollars they claim she  overcharged them in fees for administering the cities' property taxes.

Ford's office is responsible for distributing each city's share of the property taxes for which it charges an annual Fee. 

At issue is whether the fee was calculated correctly after the state Supreme Court ruled in November that the fees could not include additional property 

tax money to compensate cities and counties.

In November 2008, 47 cities in Los Angeles County sued that county, 

claiming it was charging a higher property tax fee than state law allows.










According to a report from the Center for Investigative Reporting,

Doctors under contract with the California Department of Corrections

 sterilized 148 female inmates from 2006 to 2010 without required state

 approvals, and there are perhaps 100 more dating back to the late 1990s.

From 1997 to 2010, the state paid doctors $147,460 to perform the 


The women were signed up for the surgery while they were pregnant and

housed at either the Institution for Women in Corona or Valley State Prison

 for Women in Chowchilla.

Former inmates and prisoner advocates maintain that prison medical staff 

coerced the women, targeting those deemed likely to return to prison in the 


The top medical manager at Valley State Prison from 2005 to 2008 

characterized the surgeries as an empowerment issue for female inmates, 

providing them the same options as women on the outside. Daun Martin, a 

licensed psychologist, also claimed that some pregnant women, particularly those on drugs or who were homeless, would commit crimes so they could

 return to prison for better health care.

Martin denied approving the surgeries, but at least 60 tubal ligations were done at Valley State while Martin was in charge.

Since 1994 the procedure has required approval from top medical officials in Sacramento on a case-by-case basis.





















The GMO Free Humboldt grassroots organization of local consumers, 

farmers and concerned individuals met at the Bayside Grange to construct a ban on the growth of genetically modified organisms in Humboldt County.

Unlike the recent Proposition 37, which sought to label all genetically

modified produce and other goods already available to consumers, the 

GMO Free Humboldt ban would prevent these crops and other organisms 

from being grown or produced within the county.

About 70 attendees from Arcata, Eureka, Garberville and other parts of 

Humboldt appeared at the meeting and signed up to volunteer their time to

 prepare the ban wording for submission to the county.

Small groups formed to develop the language and talking points of the ban

 itself, as well as outreach and education to both organic and 

non-organic farmers, influential stakeholders and other interested members of 

the community.

The two-hour meeting whipped by with passionate input from families, farmers and 

local business representatives, all eager to voice their concerns and offer 

their time to get the ball rolling.

Meetings are held bimonthly at the Bayside GrangeUpcoming dates:  July 10, 24, 

(Cal Fire) Humboldt - Del Norte unit chief Tom Hein  announced that as of

 July 1, 2013, all “dooryard” Residential burn permits in State Responsibility Areas of Humboldt, Del Norte and western Trinity counties are suspended. Western Trinity is defined as the area within the Six Rivers National Forest.

Burning with a valid permit is allowed for agricultural, forest management, 

and industrial type burning only. Campfires on private property are still

 allowed with property owner’s written permission. Cal Fire wants the public 

to know that suspending residential and dooryard permits is the initial step 

towards the suspension of all burning .
