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!

Florida-based Halifax Media Group has sold The Press Democrat and two affiliated publications in Sonoma County to a local partnershipSonoma Media Investments LLC, which earlier this year bought the Sonoma Index-Tribune newspaper, which publishes twice a week.

Sonoma Media Investments LLC, is set to take over The Press Democrat, the weekly Petaluma Argus-Courier and North Bay Business Journal in Santa Rosa as well as websites for the three publications.

The principal members include Darius Anderson, formerly an aide to North Coast Rep. Doug Bosco in the 1980s, Anderson, 48, became a leading Democratic fundraiser before founding a trio of lobbying, development and investment firms that quickly made him one of the Bay Area's top dealmakers. 

Also included is Doug Bosco who represented the North Coast in Congress from 1982 to 1990, one of the region's chief political power brokers.

Steven Falk is a former publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle, has served as president and chief executive of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce since 2005.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The purchase could be completed as early as this week.

No changes in personnel or editorial policy were announced.







About 5000 unionized workers went on strike against Raley's Sunday. Picket lines went up at 6am, but Raley's said every one of its 130 stores was open.

The UFCW agreed to concessions in September with another struggling grocer,but the union decided Raley's demands were too steep esp a proposal to make changes in the workers' health plan – and eliminate coverage for Medicare-eligible retirees.

The company said it was merely asking for the same concessions it already secured from employees at its nonunion stores.

The union said it's armed with a $60 million strike fund, the fattest ever. The UFCW is holding some options in reserve. Raley's 20 Bel Air stores haven't been struck. Those 2,000 employees haven't yet taken strike-authorization votes, and it appears they won't walk off the job anytime soon.







Authorities believe two men who allegedly broke into a Redwood Valley home Oct. 19 and shot two men, killing one of them, were there to steal marijuana, according to Sgt. Greg Van Patten of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

The father of the two men who were shot told police he was growing 25 marijuana plants and had a medical recommendation for them, according to Van Patten, who said Friday that deputies found 21 plants and marijuana drying in a detached shed.


Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the MCSO tip line at 234-2100.





An Arizona group is still giving its donors secret even after California's Supreme Court, in a rare weekend action, ordered it to turn over records that could identify the donors.  However, some information became known Monday when ARL revealed that the money went thru two other opaque nonprofits that routed the money its way.

Alexandria, Va.-based Americans for Job Security gave $11 million to Phoenix-based The Center to Protect Patient Rights which gave it to ARL to help defeat Prop30 & pass Pro 32., neither of which involve patients rights or job security.

Lawyers for ARL rushed to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to halt to the audit while saying they were trying to comply.







The USGS and Google have teamed up to get the public up to date information and Emergency notifications for earthquakes, severe weather and other public safety matters a through Google Public Alerts.


Earthquake data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have been incorporated into the system, as well as weather data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service.
