  The Women's March on January 21, 2017 brought more than a million people out across the nation to rally for women's rights and human rights. Marches took place all over California and Mendocino County was no exception. Thousands gathered for protests in Fort Bragg, Ukiah, and Willits. KZYX's Meg Courtney attended one of the largest gatherings in the state in Oakland.  You can listen to her audio postcard here. 






U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker determined Wednesday there are commercial fishery failures for nine salmon and crab fisheries in Alaska, California and Washington. These fisheries experienced sudden and unexpected large decreases in fish stock biomass due to unusual ocean and climate conditions in recent years. This decision means North Coast communities can seek disaster relief from Congress.


The future of local Public and Education Access Television in Mendocino County is uncertain. At the December 6, 2016 Board of Supervisors meeting, county staff recommended axing funding for that part of PEG, which stands for Public, Education and Governmental Access TV, and keeping only the government access channel. The three channels, 3,64, and 65, are available to Comcast subscribers throughout the county.  The Board of Supervisor's ad-hoc committee meeting on PEG takes place Thursday, January 19 at 10:00 at the Willits Center for the Arts.
