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!

California last week became the latest state to place restrictions on the chemical known as Bisphenol-A and declare it a reproductive toxicant. BPA, is found in hard plastic bottles, the cans of food and beverages, sales receipts and dental sealants.

Growing research suggests that BPA, believed to be found in the bodies of 90 percent of the U.S. population, is an endocrine disruptor linked to infertility and other harm. The state agency is targeting BPA under Proposition 65, which publishes lists of chemicals that cause cancer or birth defects.

BPA could now show up on the warning labels of hundreds of household items. The law does not ban the compounds, but consumer backlash can lead them to be phased out of the market. The state based its decision on a federal report that expressed concern about BPA's effects on development of the prostate gland and brain, and behavioral effects in fetuses and infants.

The American Chemistry Council is suing the state to keep BPA off the list.


With the F& W Commission’s decision to proceed with candidacy for Clear Lake hitch, section 2.11 of the California Sport Fishing Regulations is no longer valid. That regulation previously allowed take of hitch from Clear Lake and its tributaries. Recreational angling for other species on Clear Lake is still allowed.

Anglers must avoid Clear Lake hitch while fishing. The California Fish and Game Commission (FGC) will consider recreational salmon season regulations for 2013 at its meeting Wednesday in Santa Rosa. Last week, the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) approved recreational and commercial ocean salmon seasons for federal waters off the California, Oregon and Washington coasts

. On Wednesday, the FGC is expected to set regulations for salmon fishing in rivers and in the state’s ocean waters, within three miles of shore. Fishery biologists predict robust numbers of Klamath and Sacramento River fall-run Chinook off California’s coast, providing substantial fishing opportunity for 2013. However, fishing effort still must be constrained to protect vulnerable salmon populations, such as endangered Sacramento River winter-run Chinook. To protect winter-run Chinook, the PFMC closed fishing off much of the California coast on Mondays and Tuesdays, from June 1 to July 9.

“California anglers can look forward to potentially excellent ocean salmon fishing,” said Marci Yaremko, the Fish and Wildlife representative on the PFMC. “The projected abundance of key stocks is well above the low levels we’ve seen in recent years.”

Specifically, the forecast for adult Sacramento River fall-run Chinook in the ocean is 834,000, well above the target range for optimal spawner returns of 122,000 to 180,000 fish. The forecast for Klamath River fall-run Chinook is 727,600, the third highest on record.


Democrats in the California Assembly have approved a bill that would restrict permits to own assault weapons and .50-caliber rifles to individuals. Lawmakers passed AB170 on a partisan vote of 46-24 Monday.

Bradford said his bill seeks to close a loophole by prohibiting corporations, associations, partnerships and limited liability companies from receiving permits from the state Department of Justice. Previously, the justice department issued permits only to individuals, but an administrative law judge overturned that practice. The bill is just one of many in response to the Connecticut school massacre.

The legislation now moves to the Senate.


There will be a benefit for Save our Little Lake Valley, Saturday April 20th, at the Willits Grange Hall 291 School St. , Featuring Ed Rinehart & The Burning Sensations playing boogie woogie, blues and vintage rock!This is an alcohol free family friendly event!Call 513-6585 for information and tickets.
