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 rare summer precipitation is coming courtesy of an “atmospheric river” expected to wash ashore from the Pacific,  dropping up to 2 inches of rain, said Duane Dykema, National Weather Service meteorologist.


Wet conditions could linger until late Tuesday. Daytime highs will be in the low 70s and drop to the upper 50s at night.

By all accounts, fire season has arrived early this year and grasses and other fuels are noticeably drier than usual. The rains will put a damper on the action, albeit a temporary one,.







Mendocino County's medical examiner's credibility was called into serious question and the public defender was put on the stand over the possible bungling of a murder case, in an unusual all-day hearing in county Superior Court Friday.

At issue is whether Timothy Elliott, 40, of Hopland, got a fair trial in 2010 and whether he deserves a new one. He claims his public defender, Linda Thompson, was ineffective legal counsel .  He was sentenced to 16 years to life in prison.

County medical examiner Dr. Jason Trent has sworn that the knive in the case caused the fatal wound, sworn twice that it was not and Friday swore that it was the weapon.

Superior Court Judge Ann Moorman on Friday, concluded "Dr. Trent's credibility is damaged,".

In the afternoon, Public Defender Linda Thompson was called to the stand to explain the things she did in her defense case for Elliott.According to Elliott's court-appointed attorney Jan Cole-Wilson, Thompson made three grave errors: not asking for a special hearing on the knife, not cross-examining Trent about the size of the knife. And finally, not raising the issue of the knife and Trent' during her closing argument.

 Moorman scheduled another hearing in August, instructing Sequeira and Cole-Wilson to write briefs explaining why a new trial should or should not be granted.




 A man who evaded arrest for almost 13 years was ordered Thursday to stand trial for the brutal killing of a Ukiah man in August 2000.

“It’s a relief” to finally bring the suspect to justice, the victim’s brother, Dan Williamson, said during a break in a preliminary hearing held to determine whether there was sufficient evidence to warrant a trial.

Jerred Hernandez, 32, was tracked down in Mexico and returned to Mendocino County in May. He is charged with murder, burglary, arson and several special circumstances and allegations in connection with the bludgeoning death of Michael Williamson, 44 at the home of his parents, who were away at the time.

Hernandez is accused of ransacking and burglarizing the home following the killing and trying to cover his tracks by setting fire to the house.

The charges carry the possibility of a death sentence.

Hernandez’s next court appearance is July 9.




This summer the city of Ukiah Community Services Department will be presenting two more free, fun-filled events at our parks.  

Each event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to noon and will have exciting activities including arts and crafts, team-work games, bounce houses, healthy snacks and beverages, and other fun activities.  

The first event was held last Saturday, June 22, at Vinewood Park.

“Family Fun in the Sun” is presented by the city of Ukiah, with special thanks to California Exterminators Alliance, Observatory Surgery Center and Pamela L. Rones, CPA for sponsoring this event.

For more details,  call Ukiah Community Services  at 707-463-6231.
