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!

Dr. Donald Apostle, testifying for the defense in the Billy Norbury murder said Norbury has "a delusionary disorder of the persecutory type," meaning he is "paranoid, & feels persecuted.


Apostle also testified that Norbury denied committing the crime and denied having any kind of mental disorder. "I think he's denying it or lying about it," Apostle said.

Before the evaluation, Norbury had changed his not-guilty plea to not guilty by reason of insanityApostle said Norbury said "this is just a technique of buying time, and he wanted to talk to (Kubanis) about (the plea), and that he wanted to get a new lawyer."

Apostle evaluated Norbury for two hours in August.

A friend had stated Norbury was "extremely paranoid about being watched (and) thought his phone was bugged," Apostle said. 

The paranoia centered around Norbury's belief that law enforcement was watching him because he was growing marijuana, and had threatened to kill an agent of the Mendocino Major Crimes Task Force via phone from the Mendocino County Jail.

Apostle also testified that Norbury's paranoia is "aggravated by alcohol," and Monday a state Department of Justice criminalist testified that Norbury's blood-alcohol level was about 0.22 on the night of the shooting.

Kubanis rested his case at which point the jury retired to deliberate. 



A convicted abalone poacher was sentenced to probation and a fine also lost his right to get a fishing license for the rest of his life.

Paul Chak Po Mak, 62, of Oakland, was arrested and cited by Department of Fish and Game (DFG) wardens after taking 52 abalone,  the bag limit is 24. 

The Mendocino Court sentenced Mak to three years probation and fined him $15,000.

His sentencing was the latest is a series of heavy fines and penalties levied on abalone poachers in Mendocino County that included permanent fishing license revocations.

“The Department of Fish and Game and the courts recognize the serious damage that just a few individuals can do to our precious resources. ” said DFG Captain Bob Farrell,  “In this case, these sentences should put these guys out of business permanently.”

He and another man harvested the abalone for the purpose of unlawful sale on the black market. Both have previous abalone poaching convictions in Mendocino County.


The California Board of Forestry posthumously honored  Jere Melo with its highest award, the “Francis H. Raymond Award for Outstanding Contributions to California Forestry.” The presentation was made during the Board Meeting on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. Representing Mr. Melo and accepting the award was his wife, Madeleine Melo.


The Board recognized Mr. Melo for his dedication to professional forestry in California.  Mr. Melo’s career in the timber industry spanned 45 years, primarily as the Chief Forester for Georgia-Pacific and as a contractor for Campbell Timberland Management on the 170,000 acres of forestland that they oversee in Mendocino County.

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
