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!

Environmental groups have filed a second lawsuit in an effort to block a plan by Caltrans to widen two highways along the Smith River. The groups are 

concerned that the widening project, which is being done to accommodate 

additional big rig trucks in a remote area near the Oregon border, will ultimately result in an accident that could spoil the state’s last undammed major river.

Conservation groups Friends of Del Norte, the Environmental Protection 

Information Center, and the Center for Biological Diversity first sued in May in state court to block Caltrans’ plan to widen parts of Highways 197 and 199 in

the Smith River Canyon. Then on Monday, the groups sued in federal court, alleging that the project also violates federal environmental laws.









At 1:30, Tuesday, Sept. 24more than 300 social service, street maintenance, 

senior and family service workers, library staff, animal control and public health workers all attended an afternoon session of the Board, and stood together 

during their one day strike.

"The biggest message we want to give you," chapter President Dave Eberly

 told the supervisors, "is that we want to get back to bargaining."

"We work for you, but you also work for us because we vote," member Jackie Otis reminded the supervisors. "We're tired of this false paradigm that it's

 workers against taxpayers. We *are* taxpayers."

Workers say county leaders are hiding behind false financial figures and refuse to negotiate. Due to cuts-only policies, more than 30% of the workforce has disappeared in the last few


While the county has a surplus, mainly due to takeaways and attrition, county 

officials are demanding workers continue to “stay the course” with ongoing cuts and carry more increases in healthcare costs.

Workers are asking for wage restoration over the course of a three year 







September 22−28 is Banned Books Week: an annual event celebrating 

the freedom to read.

By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.

The top ten challenged books of 2012 were Captain Underpants by Dav PilkeyThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie;Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay AsherFifty 

Shades of Grey, by E. L. JamesAnd Tango Makes Three, by Peter Parnell 

and Justin RichardsonThe Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini; Looking for 

Alaska, by John GreenScary Stories by Alvin SchwartzThe Glass Castle, by 

Jeanette Walls;
and Beloved, by Toni Morrison.

These books have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. Part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a 

majority of cases, the books have remained available thanks to the efforts of 

librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and 

speak out for the freedom to read. For more information see  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .








You can now help clean up the coast with a bill, AB 754, which

Governor Brown signed on Saturday which gives taxpayers the opportunity to support coastal conservation efforts with the check of a box on their state 

income tax return.

The check-off box on California personal income tax forms will allow taxpayers to make 

charitable contributions to the California Beach and Coastal Enhancement 

Account. Funds will be available through the California Coastal Commission’s WHALE TAIL Grants Program, which supports public education on the state’s marine and coastal resources, Adopt-A-Beach programs and other beach maintenance and coastal habitat restoration projects that have an educational component.

For the full text of the bill, visit:

This law becomes effective January 1, 2014.





The Community Foundation of Mendocino County announces its 2014 

Community Enrichment Grant guidelines and application are now available 

online at:  

A recommended information workshop will be held from 11 a.m. -1 p.m. 

Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the Foundation, 204 S. Oak St., Ukiah. 

Marianne McGee Resource Development Director at Mendocino Coast Clinics, will present a short session on grant-making and fundraising tips. She will also introduce  the Healthy Mendocino website, new component of the grant process.

The Enrichment Grant program is available to non-profit organizations, school districts, and special districts based in Mendocino 

County or to any organization with a project that has specific benefit to 

Mendocino residents.
