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 Willits City Council meeting this Wed. At 6:30 at City Hall will deal with 

three important issues.


The first is Discussion and Possible Action Regarding Use of City Streets by the Contractor - DaSilvaGates, Flatiron on the Willits Bypass Project.


The second is the Discussion and Possible Direction Regarding Potential 

Use/Purchase of Treated Wastewater by the Contractors on the Willits 

Bypass Project (as requested by Councilmember Strong)


According to Mayor Holly Madrigal appearing on Mendo Matters last week, 

the amount of water required for dust abatement is quite a bit in excess of 

what had expected particularly in light of a later agenda item to Adopt a 

Resolution Declaring a Phase I Water Shortage Emergency.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Two water districts in the Sacramento area have filed a lawsuit in federal 

court in Fresno to stop increased flows on the Trinity River set to begin on 

August 13. 


The Westlands Water District and San Luis Delta Mendota Water Authority allege that the Bureau of Reclamation's planned releases from Trinity 

Reservoir to protect salmon in the lower Klamath River would be unlawful 

and would further cut water available for the growers, causing them 

"significant and irreparable harm"


"Instead of releasing that water to the Trinity River, Defendants could export it to the Sacramento watershed to support deliveries to members of the 

Authority. By doing so, Reclamation could restore the 5% allocation to south-of-Delta contractors that was cut on March 22, 2013." 


The Hoopa Valley Tribe responded by intervening in the lawsuit in support

 of increased releases down the Trinity.


"Our fisheries scientists are very concerned about developing fish disease 

conditions in the Lower Klamath River, conditions that will affect the salmon runs returning to the Trinity River," said Danielle Vigil-Masten, Chair of the Hoopa Valley Tribe. " A die -off of Trinity River salmon, if it were to occur again this year, would be very harmful to the many Hoopa tribal members who rely upon these fish." 


The Yurok Tribe and Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations

 (PCFFA) will also intervene in the lawsuit in support of the Trinity River

 releases. 



The Mendocino County Woody Biomass Working Group and the Coastal 

Biomass Collaborative invite the public to attend community education and discussion sessions this month regarding the ecological impact of biomass 

removal in Mendocino County forests.The meetings concern the ecological harm caused by  overharvesting of biomass .


Three events will be held :

- Fort Bragg, Tuesday, Aug. 20, 5-7:30 p.m., County Library community room.


- Covelo, Wednesday, Aug. 21, 5-7:30 p.m., Tribal Administration Building.


- Ukiah, Thursday, Aug. 22, 5-7:30 p.m., Grace Hudson Museum.

The California Office of Environmental Health has issued its first-ever set of statewide guidelines for eating safe fish from California's lakes 

and reservoirs, including many in Northern California.


The new advisory advises that women between the ages of 18 and 45 and 

children under 18 should avoid eating bass, carp, and brown trout larger 

than 16 inches because of a risk of methyl mercury exposure, which has 

been shown to damage the brain and nervous system.


Some species of fish, like bullhead, catfish and bluegill are acceptable for

 consumption at one serving a week. Species that are safe to eat include 

wild-caught rainbow trout, and small brown trout.


The advisory and guidelines stem from the evaluation of 272 lakes and 

reservoirs, and 2,600 fish samples.


A recently released study found that sportfish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta watershed had higher concentrations of mercury and 

PCB's than anywhere else in the state.


 

The advisories can be found at: www.oehha.ca.gov/fish.html
