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!

The Norbury Murder trial continued today with Defense attorney Kubanis' cross-examination of Miranda Mills, Jamal Andrews life partner and mother of their eight month old son.


 

Yesterday, she described Norbury's  third visit to their home late at night.  Mills told the court that she heard Andrews say, "Are you serious?" The next thing she heard was a gunshot and  Andrews running toward the front door with a "worried and scared" look on his face, then another gunshot and a flash of light, and Andrews fell to the ground. She heard another shot as he fell.


Neighbor  testified that she saw that Andrews had a gunshot wound to his head, later described by   deputy Robert Moore as a fatal wound.


 

Defense attorney Kubanis reserved his opening comments until later in the trial.


The trial is expected to last three weeks, and include a phase where the jury will decide Norbury's sanity. 




 

 

 

 

 

The Ukiah Fire Department and the Ukiah Valley Fire District are about to begin responding to fires in the Ukiah Valley as a team.


"This will be a much greater service to the community," Public Safety Chief Chris Dewey told the council, "We would treat the UFD and UVFD as one jurisdiction," Dewey continued

Dewey said that the next step to merge the departments will be to merge dispatching services with Cal Fire.




 

 

The injunction hearing filed to stop the Highway 101 bypass around Willits is scheduled for tomorrow morning in a San Francisco Federal courtroom.

The law considers injunctions to be a "drastic and extraordinary remedy." To grant an injunction, the court must determine the case is likely to succeed on its own merits, is likely to suffer irreparable harm if the injunction is not granted, that the injunction is in the public interest, 

The Center for Biological Diversity, Sierra Club, Willits Environmental Center and the Environmental Protection Information Center filed suit  on May 1. The California Farm Bureau joined the suit in August. CalTrans awarded the construction bid September 5, and on September 7 the four environmental groups filed for an injunction.

The injunction seeks to stop all construction until the case is resolved at trial.




 

 

 

 

 

Officials from Pacific Gas & Electric presented Lake county with a refund check for $13,992 thanks to an energy efficiency project that began in 2010.

 in mid-2010 Caroline Chavez, now director of the Public Service Department, contacted PG&E to help create an energy efficiency project that would qualify for federal stimulus funds.

Two years later, the completed project included the installation of 27 air conditioning and heating units, 160 plug load sensors, nearly 200 lighting occupancy sensors installed around the courthouse, new lightning systems throughout county facilities, including the jail, 

That new equipment will save the county an estimated $17,000 annually and has reduced the countys carbon dioxide footprint by 56 metric tons.
