Thanks to everyone who helped us raise nearly $81,000 during our Fall Pledge Drive!

It was a real team effort, with literally hundreds of people pitching in to keep up the momentum. Whether you pledged your financial support, made on-air appeals, answered phones, donated food, time, or thank-you gifts, YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

Our goal was $120,000 and it was based on real needs. While we didn't get there, we all worked together in an upbeat way to express our gratitude to the community that sustains us. We made tremendous strides towards keeping KZYX moving forward in its mission of listener service. You have once again proven your commitment to keeping local public radio alive and well. Thank you!

The Mendocino Board of Supervisors has a resolution calling for a 

Constitutional amendment at its 9 a.m. meeting Tuesday. The amendment 

establishes that only human beings and not corporations are endowed with Constitutional rights and that money is not free speech and can be 


The resolution is a direct result of the passing of Measure F 75% to 25% in 2012. Measure F called for the Supervisors to enact this resolution. 

 Mendocino County was the first county in California to pass a call for a 

Constitutional amendment that was put on the ballot by citizens. 















The Clearlake City Council has demoted its mayor, citing behavior 

unsuitable for a leader. 

“It’s a shame and it’s an embarrassment,” said councilwoman Joyce Overton, who was voted in as the replacement for the ousted mayor, Jeri Spittler.

Spittler had been accused of being rude to other council members and staff, especially during closed sessions; giving orders to staff without 

authorization; and overhauling a staff break room without notifying anyone.

Spittler, in her third year as a council member, said the accusations against her range from false to highly exaggerated and should not have ended her

 one-year mayoral term early.

“It’s unbelievable. Basically I was ousted for providing a clean environment 

for the staff to have its lunches,” she said.

Her fellow council members say Spittler is the one exaggerating and that 

she appears not to understand the point of the criticisms.

The council majority is also upset with Spittler for taking a public stand 

against their 4-1 decision to ask voters for a 1 percent sales tax, primarily for the city’s 

ailing roads.

“I call it power crazed,” Overton said.








The City of Willits water continues to have an unpleasant taste and smell 

due to a problem with algae in its Morris Reservoir. City Manager Adrienne Moore continues to assure users the water is safe to drink. "This is a 

completely natural occurrence resulting from low reservoir levels during 

warm weather months and record-breaking heat following by a cold snap, which resulted in an unusually high algae bloom." 

Historically the city used frequent applications of copper sulfate 

algicide to the water surface to kill the algae during the summer. In 

September 2012 the city installed two leased Solar Bees to replace the 

copper sulfate treatment. The Solar Bees use a solar powered  pump to 

bring cooler water from deeper in the lake to the surface. This cools the lake water surface temperatures . Thousands of these devices are used in water reservoirs around the world. 

"This new system has been working well; however, the recent algae bloom was far more extensive for the system to be able to handle, "City staff is 

regularly consulting with SolarBee representatives to address our recent 


Moore suggests "Using lemon slices and refrigerating your water will improve the taste".







Moviegoers at the Regal Ukiah Stadium 6 on South State Street will now be seeing the Rethink the drink commercials that a national firm originally 

rejected last week.

National CineMedia, said that allowing the water ads "conflicts with soda 

sales in the theater lobby and will upset management and the theater circuit.

Stacey Cryer, director of the Mendocino Health and Human Services 

Agency,emphasized that the local theater had nothing to do with National 

CineMedia's decision regarding the ads, and that the firm was within its 

rights to refuse to run them.


The grant money that will pay for the ads comes from the California 

Community Transformation Initiative, and is intended to reduce risk factors 

for high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and others.
