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 man who challenged Lake County's interim medical marijuana cultivation ordinance in court voluntarily dropped the nearly year-old lawsuit last week. "The main reason is I think we have accomplished all we can with that suit, and anything more is not going to be productive," plaintiff Don Merrill said Monday. 

Merrill, originally joined by several other medical marijuana users, sued the county and Sheriff Frank Rivero last July in response to temporary laws adopted by the Board of Supervisors . The interim ordinance, approved by the supervisors July 9, limits outdoor cultivation amounts and bans commercial cultivation as well as growing on vacant lands in the unincorporated areas of Lake County. 

Merrill, through his Bay Area attorney Joe Elford, moved to voluntarily dismiss the case without prejudice 

The interim ordinance is set to expire in July 2014.












KPPC's "Represent!" reports that despite efforts to fight the ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court, California officials are developing plans to obey a court order to transfer more than 9,000 inmates from state prisons by the end of the year.

In 2006, U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson ruled that federal oversight of the prisonwas needed because an average of one inmate per week died as a result of medical malpractice or neglect.

As of April, the prison population was at 150% of capacity, or 9,000 more inmates than the court-ordered cap.

May 2, Brown said that they could remove about 7,000 inmates by December.

Thursday, three federal judges rejected the plan, ordering Brown to release about 9,600 inmates -- or 8% of the inmate population.

The judges suggested expanding the use of good behavior credits to expedite prisoner releases. The governor intends to appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court and has until July 13 to do so .

However, Gregory Ahern,

Alameda County Sheriff and president of the California State Sheriffs Association -- said the group is working with Brown's office to develop a backup plan to be used if the Supreme Court rejects the case or agrees with the judges' ruling.

The state is considering several strategies, including: Shifting more inmates to county jails, firefighting camps and out-of- state prisons; and Implementing electronic monitoring of inmates, especially those who are near the end of their sentences




THE MENDOCINO TOWN PLAN UPDATE, after many years since its last update, will again be reviewed and considered and public comments will be taken by the County Planning Commission on July 11 at some time after 9am at the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 501 Low Gap Road, Ukiah. 

The Planning Commission will then comment on the Local Coastal Program Amendment/General Plan Amendment Draft Mendocino Town Plan and Ordinance Amendment to Town Zoning Code, making recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. Should the Board of Supervisors adopt the Mendocino Town Plan and Zoning Code, the Local Coastal Program/Ordinance Amendments will be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for certification. For more information go to  Or call 463-4281














Tonight on Mendo Matters we'll be taking up the topic of the State Parks intention to demolish the Old Haul Road ast MacKerriker Stater Park, despite almost unified opposition by local citizens in the Fort Bragg area. The proposal calls for more than 2,500 truck loads of debris to be hauled out of the park, potentially damaging local species, according to opponents.


We've invited members of the community both pro and con and we'll be speaking with Thad Van Bueren, chairman of the Westport Community Council and a local archeologist, an opponent of the move. And we hope to have your comments as well at 456-9991, this evening on Mendo Matters, at 7pm.
