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!

CAL FIRE Mendocino is closing the “Trestle Trail” 

between Camp 8 and Road 1070 on Jackson 

Demonstration State Forest to mushroom picking and other recreational activities, effective immediately.  

This trail will be closed until the end of the rainy 

season, as a precautionary measure in an attempt to slow the spread of the invasive pathogen that causes 

Sudden Oak Death.  

Additionally, all JDSF campgrounds have closed for the season and seasonal roads will be closed to 

vehicular traffic by October 14 to protect them from 

damage during wet weather.

Information regarding Sudden Oak Death or the

 closures is available at the CAL FIRE Fort Bragg at 

802 North Main Street, (707) 964-5674 
















Jay Scrivner, a 45-year-old English lecturer at College of the Redwoods , was bitten on the thigh by a 8 foot long great white shark  while surfing off the coast near Eureka.

Scrivner regularly surfs at the spot near Humboldt Bay known as the Samoa Peninsula where another 

surfer, Scott Stephens, survived a shark attack last 


Scriver said that "out of nowhere" he saw the shark's 

teeth and nose. After he was bitten, he took a swing 

at the great white and let out what a friend nearby 

described as a primordial yell.

Scrivner said he did a quick inventory of his body 

parts and found everything was intact. A friend 

encouraged him to keep paddling toward the beach.

Once there, friends and fellow surfers applied 

pressure on the wound and tied a T-shirt to stop the bleeding.

Scrivner was alert and conscious on shore when 

rescue crews got to the scene around 8:45 a.m., 

Samoa Peninsula Fire District Chief Dale Unea said.

The bite wound on his left thigh did not sever an 

artery or damage any tendons. There was some 

muscle tissue damage that required about 30 stitches, but he is expected to fully recover.

He said he thinks he was spared from more damage by his old surf board, which is thicker than many 

modern boards.

Scrivner said he will "definitely surf again," but with 





The first issue of "The Humboldt Edge”, a newspaper produced with the assistance of Humboldt's 

homeless, came out last Saturday.  Issues were 

handed out at farmer’s markets, available in agencies such as Family Resource Centers, and placed in 

local shops and cafes . 

The monthly paper seeks to counter the marginali-zation, stigmatization and silencing of people in 

poverty.The Humboldt Edge took four months of 

conversations, meetings, writing, editing and revising with dozens of local houseless people. 

The first edition contains the voices of thirteen local 

homeless and recently housed people, alongside 

one informational news article about The Homeless

 Bill of Rights and Fairness Act (AB5) that is currently under consideration in the State Senate.  The next 

edition is planned for December. The Humboldt

 Edge would like to become a permanent and 

sustainable paper but that will require more volunteer support with layout, editing and fundraising.

The editor and publisher is Lorena Boswell, a second year Masters of Divinity student of Starr King School 

of the Ministry, who received  funds as a recipient of 

the Jonathan Daniels Fellowship for seminarians 

seeking to strengthen their theological education 

through participation in an important social need.  

The funds are enough to produce and print two or

 three editions of the paper.
