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!

BLISS FISHER, the  County Director of Animal Care, has resigned after being out on administrative leave for the past several months.

 

According to the AVA. Ms. Fisher succeeded in winning the confidence of the disparate animal rights groups but apparently offended the people she supervised. Ms. Fisher shared candid shots of her topless self at Burning Man with a subordinate and while there is no allegation that Ms. Fisher suggested or attempted anything untoward, the photo became the catalyst for a series of complaints and an investigation ensued that documented infractions allegedly committed by Ms. Fisher. 


County higher-ups are said to have wanted Ms. Fisher to stay based on her success in quieting the animal rights activists, but a majority of her subordinates were said to be adamantly opposed to her continued supervision of their work.

 



William Osterhoudt, the San Francisco defense attorney hired to fight the Mendocino pot subpoena has lodged a formal motion that contends, in part, that the county is prevented from releasing confidential medical information because of criminal sanctions outlined in the 2004 California Medical Marijuana Program Act under which the county's regulations were developed.

A Jan. 29 hearing date is set in U.S. District Court in San Francisco at which the county will ask Northern California  Judge Richard Seeborg to nullify the order.

Although the U.S. Attorney's Office maintains that participants in Mendocino's program relinquished the privilege to keep information confidential when they provided it to the countyattorney Adam Wolf, who wrote a brief on behalf of medical marijuana groups,says that's not the same as waiving confidentiality. 

 

 

 

 



GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN HAS DECLARED AN END TO THE ERA OF STATE BUDGET DEFICITS… WITH A BUDGET THAT HIKES SPENDING ON EDUCATION AND HOLDS THE LINE AGAINST ANY MORE CUTS TO SOCIAL SERVICE PROGRAMS. BROWN SAYS HIS BUDGET PROPOSAL WILL INCREASE SPENDING ON PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WITH A FOCUS ON THOSE WITH LARGE NUMBERS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS AND STUDENTS FROM POOR FAMILIES. THE BUDGET ALSO HIKES SPENDING ON HIGHER EDUCATION… BUT SOME ADVOCATES FOR THE POOR WANT THE STATE TO ALSO START RESTORING PAST CUTS TO HEALTH AND WELFARE PROGRAMS.


Christopher Martinez reports.




 

 

 

 

People charged with driving under the influence in Lake County, especially repeat offenders and drivers in fatal or injury crashes, will soon face highly specialized prosecutors because of a new grant awarded to the DA's Office.

The $150,000 grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will fund a "vertical prosecution team" that will work cases from arrest through sentencing.

In 2011, six deaths and 50 injuries occurred in unincorporated Lake County during crashes in which DUI was the primary factor, according to DA Anderson.

The prosecutors will work with the state's Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor Program to increase the capabilities of the team and the DA's office by obtaining and delivering specialized training, including  drug-impaired driving.

Funding for the program comes from a grant by the OTS through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
