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!

Millions of krill -- a tiny shrimp-like animal at the center of the ocean food web -- have been washing up on beaches from Clam Beach, Redwood National Park and Crescent Beach to Southern Oregon for the past few weeks and scientists are baffled.

”We're still looking into it. We got reports locally a couple days after the mass strandings,” said Joe Tyburczy, Humboldt County coastal specialist with California Sea Grant Extension .

Most local sightings of the event happened between June 16 and June 18, and were reported mostly by beach goers, he said. NOAA oceanographer Bill Peterson says the krill may have been blown into the surf by strong winds while mating near the surface, and then been dashed on the beach.

Peterson said “People have sent us specimens. In both cases, the females had just been fertilized. That suggests they were involved, maybe, in a mating swarm. But we've had a lot of onshore wind the last two weeks. If they were on the surface and the wind blows them toward the beach that is the end of them.”

For some reason, people did not see gulls and other sea birds eating them,"Tyburczy added that washed up krill were seen June 21 as far south as Bodega Bay. Peterson added. There is no way to tell yet whether this represents a significant threat to a source of food for salmon, rockfish, ling cod and whales.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) invites anglers to celebrate summer by fishing for free this Saturday. July 6 is the first of two Free Fishing Days in 2013, when people can try their hand at fishing without having to buy a sport fishing license. All fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect. Every angler must have an appropriate report card if they are fishing for steelhead or sturgeon anywhere in the state, or salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity River systems.

This year, the Free Fishing Days were set for the Saturdays following Independence Day and Labor Day (July 6 and Sept. 7). Free Fishing Days provide a low-cost way to give fishing a try. Anglers should check the rules and regulations at for the waters they plan to fish. Wardens will be on duty to enforce them. For more information on Free Fishing Days, please visit

The commercial dungeness crab season will be extended to Aug. 14 off the coasts of Mendocino, Humboldt and Del Norte counties, the Department of Fish and Wildlife announced Monday.

The crab season is being extended to provide added fishing opportunities because the 2012-2013 season was delayed six weeks due to the crabs molting late. Industry reports confirm that crabs are still in good condition.

The extension coincides with the Oregon commercial dungeness crab season closing date.
