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 annual quarantine on sport-harvested mussels along the Mendocino Coast is now in effect because testing has detected elevated levels of domoic acid and high numbers of the algae that produce this toxin.

“The quarantine is in place to protect the public against poisoning that can lead to severe illness, including coma and death,” said Department of Public Health Director Dr. Ron Chapman. “It is critical that the public honor this quarantine, as toxins found in mussels have no known antidotes. These toxins are not reliably destroyed by cooking.”

This quarantine, which typically starts on May 1, protects the public from paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and domoic acid poisoning (DAP).

PSP affects the central nervous system, and in severe cases, complete paralysis and death can occur.

For information, call the Biotoxin Information Line (1-800-553-4133).





The boards of Fort Bragg Credit Union and Mendo Lake Credit Union met jointly on April 25 and approved a resolution initiating the regulatory process to merge the two credit unions.  

The resolution is now subject to state and federal regulatory approval. Upon approval, members will be given an opportunity to vote on the merger agreement, with a full disclosure of merger details provided to members prior to the vote.

Assuming that regulatory and member approval are obtained, the combined organization would be over $170 million in total assets and serve more than 24,000 members.  

Out of that total, the proposed combined Fort Bragg branch will have over $50 million in deposits, more than $26 million in loans and serve over 7,000 members.  

MLCU will assume all of FBCU’s assets and liabilities, and the continuing credit union will bear the MLCU name.  

Due to larger office size, the continuing Fort Bragg location will be  at the FBCU office on Franklin Street which will offer all current employees of both credit unions opportunities to stay.








The Ukiah City Council has approved Police Chief Chris Dewey's plan to add two officers and two new positions to his department.

Dewey explained that while his officers are focused on reducing and solving crimes against people such as assaults, rapes and homicides, other important "quality of life" issues such as traffic and code enforcement are not being addressed.

Dewey said he has 23 sworn officers, but two are now out with "significant injuries," and three are actively looking for other jobs.

his officers are not only overworked, but they are encountering an increasing amount of violence in their jobs, as last year "there were eight significant attacks on our officers, all from transients or mental health patients."

the large population of transients that call Ukiah their temporary home,  is a deep concern to any business or property owner on Airport Park Boulevard," he said, referring to the violence, panhandling, outdoor defecating and urinating and other issues that tend to increase along with the population of transients.

To help pay for two more officers,Dewey said he would receive $125,000 in funding from the Community Corrections Committee.

The fourth position Dewey wants to add is a CSO position that will deal with code enforcement, which his department does not have the time and staffing to address.





Spring cleaning at Mendocino College includes a large surplus sale this Friday, May 3 from 9:00-5:00 at the Red Barn on the Ukiah Campus.

This year’s sale will include desks, chairs, old computers, file cabinets, compressors and lots of other miscellaneous items.

Also, stop by the annual Plant Sale just 100 yards East of the Barn.

For more information, call 468-3076.
