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 700 members of SEIU 1021 are preparing for a one day strike against 

Mendocino county to begin at 6am on Tuesday, Sept 24.

Last Wednesday, SEIU 1021 members overwhelmingly voted in favor of going on an Unfair Labor Practice strike. The union's bargaining team met with 

county administrators on Thursday, Sept. 19. where, at the direction of County CEO Carmel Angelo, they refused to bargain and declared an impasse.

SEIU claims that the County is in violation of several ULP’s, including surface 

bargaining and refusing to give workers vital information relating to bargaining as well as contracting out SEIU 1021 positions. 

According to a press release, County employees have given back more than $7 million, lost 10 percent of their take-home pay and this year took on a 15 percent increase in healthcare premiums.

 Now the county is demanding more cuts, even though there is a surplus and many county positions are paid for through federal funding.










Wednesday, Sept. 18, in a possibly illegal meeting, the Redwood Coast Senior Center Board voted to fire Executive Director Charles Bush. Apparently, the 

board never formally consulted with an attorney, either before or after the 

controversial vote.

According to several reliable sources, the vote was 4-2 for the firing with two abstentions. Board member Bob Bushansky walked out before the vote, saying the meeting had not been properly noticed or posted. 

The meeting came with no agenda and the board failed to go into closed 

session, he said.

"I informed the board, all eight other members, that any actions taken at an 

illegally held meeting had no legal standing. The board president said that she didn't care what I thought, they were moving forward anyway," said Bushansky.

The vote conducted was by secret ballot. Ballots in which votes are kept secret from other board members are always illegal under the Brown Act .

According to its bylaws, notice must be posted on the center's website and on a public bulletin board three days before a special meeting and at least one week before a regular meeting.

Charges against Bush in a document obtained by Frank Hartzell of the FB Advocate include having a messy office, spending too much time in the dining room and not enough fundraising. 

No report yet on the results of Friday's meeting of the Board.

Thanks to Frank Hartzell and the Advocate.






According to an article in last Thursday's Will

its Weekly under Cat Lee's byline, Superior Court Judge John Benke has 

denied a motion of 'vindictive prosecution' brought by Will Parrish's defense 

against DA David Eyster. Parrish is facing 16 misdemeanor charges for 

trespassing on CalTrans sites. He was also arrested again Wednesday, 

apparently for violating his bail terms, although he was on the other side of the highway from the protestors.

During the hearing, Ty Lewis, a local CHP officer, testified that when he 

escorted Parrish to the medical team before being booked July 1st, Parrish

 said "Will you carry me. It's more dramatic. I'm trying to make a statement."

The vindictive prosecution motion was based on the fact that after Parrish 

rejected a lenient plea agreement, DA Eyster filed sixteen misdemeanor 

charges against him, a maximum of eight years in prison. Judge Benke said 

"In the absence of presuming his motivation, I think we're muddling into 

prosecutorial discretion....motion denied."

Parrish's pre-trial hearing continues Tuesday, Sept 24th at 8:30 am.
