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!

Hundreds of friends of Forrest Seagrave came out Saturday night in Kelseyville to memorialize the 33 year, who had been mortally wounded during an armed robbery.

The  Sheriff’s Office has released surveillance video taken from a camera on the side of the at Mt. Konocti Gas and Mart on Main Street.

The male suspect, attired in dark clothing with his face obscured by some kind of mask or bandanna, can be seen walking along the side of the store.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

Supervisor Rob Brown thanked everyone for coming, saying it meant a lot to Seagrave’s family. Brown, who led the effort to raise the reward, said the store’s owners had contributed $2,000 as well as a number of other local businesses, including Gossett Alarm and Calpine.

“Forrest is our family,” and that’s why the community needs to work together to catch the suspect, Brown told the crowd.

Funds are still being accepted to increase the reward . Checks can be made to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office-Forrest Seagrave Reward fund. For more information, call Brown at 707-349-2628.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call the sheriff’s office at 707-263-2690.



 

The Mendo board of supervisors will hear another presentation on a potential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program Tuesday morning, this time from Ygrene Energy Fund, at 9:30 a.m.

A PACE program finances "green" improvements--with private funding--at no upfront cost to the property owner. These loans are paid back over time with a property tax assessment that is passed along to a new owner if the property is sold. Proponents say there are "zero costs" to any city or county that starts up a PACE program.

The board voted 3-2 in December--Supervisor John Pinches and Supervisor Carre Brown dissenting--to invite a PACE operator to explain the benefits and to answer questions about the county's potential involvement.


Ygrene Energy Fund programs are modeled on Sonoma County's successful Program, which has funded 1,750 residential projects and 57 commercial projects since March 2009. Almost $60 million has funded 730 jobs, and 86 percent of the projects were completed by local contractors.




 

 

With no public discussion, the Ukiah City Council unanimously approved a two-year extension of City Manager Jane Chambers' contract.

Chambers' current five-year contract expires in May, and the council was asked to approve a two-year extension "with the understanding  that her compensation is subject to cost reduction."

Chambers' salary is $150,000 a year, not including benefits.



 

 

 

 

The Sonoma County zoning board last week soundly rejected the state's application to charge for parking along state beaches.

"Currently, the idea is yes, we will be appealing," said Stephanie Coleman, a coordinator for California State Parks.

former county supervisor Bill Kortum spoke for many critics when he told the zoning board that the coast is the "commons of California, and you don't charge people to go to their commons."



 

 

 

Today is Dr Martin Luther King Day, honoring the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and civil rights leader assassinated at age 39 in Memphis, TN in 1968 for his continued opposition to racial segregation in the US. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience

Federal offices, state, county & city offices are Closed as well as schools, banks and postal service.



THE RISK OF SNEAKER WAVES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MON AS LONG PERIOD WAVES MOVE THROUGH THE WATERS.

Be careful at the beach!
