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 City of Ukiah may still sue the state of California for the right to use several million dollars worth of bond proceeds toward the traffic improvements needed to bring a Costco store to Airport Park Boulevard.

"We are still in disagreement with the Department of Finance (DOF) in regards to the bond proceeds," Assistant City Manager Sage Sangiacomo told the

 Ukiah City Council .

In March of 2011, the URA sold several million dollars worth of bonds to pay for traffic improvements, but since the dismantling of redevelopment, the state has refused to accept the city's plan for the money. 

In the meantime, without the bond money available for use, the City Council in February approved borrowing up to $4 million from the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (I-Bank).

"We are counting on paying (the loan) back with the increased revenues from Costco," Sangiacomo said at the time, adding that City Manager Jane Chambers will not agree to the loan until "the Costco EIR is certified and Costco has 

entered into a purchasing agreement."









A pilot program launched by Ukiah's garbage hauler to recycle food waste 

from local businesses has attracted "Only six of the 80 commercial entities that could be participating are," council member Landis told the city council, and a key reason is that there are some "major producers (of food waste) that already have a path for their food waste," which is hauled outside of the area.

"C&S wants to do further study and find out who would use a food waste

 program among the residents of Ukiah.

C&S attempted to start a composting center but the county refused their permit. They then decided that the waste would be trucked to Lakeport where they 

received a permit.

The company will now not be reporting back to the council until December.













Redwood Coast Senior Center Executive Director Charles Bush has gone 

back to work , after a vote last week by the board of directors to fire him. 

His wife posted an e-message for him on the mcn bulletin board saying "Because of irregularities in procedure, and the absence of official notification from the Board that I have 

been dismissed, I have been advised by legal counsel to go to work Monday morning and continue executing the responsibilities of my position," .

The annual meeting of the board is scheduled for this Friday, Sept. 27, at 1 p.m. at the Senior Center, 490 N. Harold St. A new board member will be elected

 from four candidates who applied for the position. New officers will be elected. A full agenda for the meeting has not yet been published. This is a public 







GOVERNOR BROWN has signed a bill that makes it illegal for drivers to come within three feet of a bicyclist on state highways. Assembly Bill 1371, or the 

“Three Feet for Safety Act” requires motorists to keep three feet between their vehicles and any cyclist before they pass. Penalty for first-time violators is $35.




A drainage repair project on Route 254/Avenue of the Giants will begin at 7AM on Monday, September 30, and requires a temporary full closure of the 

highway near the High Rock Conservation Camp, located between Weott and Redcrest in Humboldt County.The closure is expected to last through 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 4.  The highway will reopen for the weekend. 

Businesses on Route 254/Avenue of the Giants in Redcrest and Weott will 

remain accessible.  Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians will still be able to

access Redwood State Park both north and south of the closure. A detour is 

available by using Route 101 from the South Fork/Honeydew Exit (Exit 663) to

 the Redcrest Exit (Exit 667).
