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!

Over 50 concerned citizens filled Crown Hall last Thursday when theee n  PlaPlanning Commission met in Mendocino to receive public comment about the Mendocino Town Plan update.     Many people spoke, for and against, the proposed action to phase vacation rentals from the residential arearea.  There was also a request  to separate second unit rentals from vacation rentals, since second  unit rentals mean the primary home is occoccupied.

The Mendocino Art Center zoning designation was moved from a split

 zozoning to residential.  

Wendy Roberts, resident and member of the Me Historic Review Board, advocated for a firm enforcement plan to hold 

     everyone accountable and encourage compliance.

There were many  comments regarding the Sensitive Coastal Resources Area (SCRA) designation. One group said 166 residents have signed a letter stating they do not want Mendocino to have 

SCRA designation. They believe local control is adequate. People

with an opposing view said that every measure should be taken to 

protect the historic town. 

In the end, the Planning Commission moved the document forward to the Board of Supervisors without adjustment or recommendation. 

The Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting in Mendocino on July 11 to consider the document.





An unlikely savior showed up at the May 16 Mendocino Coast Television board meeting with an offer to provide space to rent for $1,250 per month. 

Terrence Vaughn, CEO of Mendocino TV & FogSpinner Productions came to support MCTV after Mendocino Judge Jeanine Nadel ruled that MCTV must give back the Footlighters Laurel Street building and pay $36,315. The tentative ruling stems from the 2007 transfer of the building from then-Footlighters president Bud Farley to MCTV, a transaction the judge found to be illegal.

the MCTV nonprofit board promised to consider the offer from the mendocino TV despite the past disagreement between Executive Director Elizabeth Swenson and Mendocino TV.

Vaughn, a former board member with the nonprofit that is now MCTV, has developed a television production facility in the Company Store on Main Street in Fort Bragg. The facility now features much more modern equipment than MCTV has, such as high definition technology. Vaughn said the studio would be "turn-key" for a downsized MCTV.  "This offer is limited in time. Your response needs to be made by May 23,"  "If you need more time, please let me know ASAP. Vaughn wrote to MCTV May 16 meeting. 

The Clearlake City Council Thursday night gave unanimous approval to a first reading of a new ordinance to establish rules for medical marijuana cultivationprohibiting grows on vacant parcels.

It suggests plant limits on residential parcels ranging from six plants on parcels of half an acre or less up to 48 plants on 40 acres or more; prohibits growing in mobile home parks and multifamily dwellings; and requires grows be screened from view.

The main public comment came from a couple who use the plant to manage pain that the plant limits don’t allow them to grow enough to use the plant in edibles.

City Manager Joan Phillipe explained that the Clearlake Planning Commission had recommended the council approve the ordinance.

The council will hold its second and final reading of the ordinance at its June 13 meeting.









KZYX has just learned that Al Jazeera has cancelled all radio affiliations in the USA, with their afternoon program - the one we run at 6:30 PM - going away May 31.  Their morning programs will end by August 1.   We're figuring out what to do.  Stay tuned.
