Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

AM News for Wednesday, 7.17.13

Federal prosecutors have not yet decided whether they will seek the death penalty in the case of a Kelseyville man accused of shooting to death a 

convenience store clerk, Forrest Seagrave, in January.


31-year-old Jonathan Mota, who is being held in an Alameda Jail in Oakland, made his first appearances in federal court in San Francisco this week on the four counts against himuse of a firearm in a murder, use of a firearm during a 

crime of violence,  and felon in possession of a firearm.


Mota and his attorney, Richard Mazer, returned to court on Friday for a 20-minute status conference, court filings showed.


While Mota's indictment states that penalties for the charges against him 

could earn him life in prison, minutes of the Friday hearing noted that the 

government “has not determined if matter will be treated as a capital 

prosecution.”


Mota remained in Lake County Jail custody until April, when he was 

transported to the Oakland jail facility after federal authorities took custody 

of him in the weapons case, as Lake County News has reported.



 

 

 

 

 

 

Congress members from Colorado and Washington are planning to try again to help marijuana business access banking services.


A bill to be introduced Wednesday revives an effort to shield financial

 institutions from prosecution if they allow marijuana businesses to access 

any banking services. Financial institutions now violate federal drug law if 

they allow marijuana banking, leaving the industry running on mostly cash in the states that allow marijuana. The pot banking bill would allow 

businesses to make deposits, apply for loans and accept credit cards.


Colorado Rep. Ed Perlmutter and Washington Rep. Denny Heck are lead 

sponsors. The measure faces dim prospects in the Republican-controlled House.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next Ukiah Fun in the Sun events will occur July 20 at Oak Manor Park and Aug. 10 at Orchard Park. Each free event will take place from 9:30 to

 noon and will feature constant supervised activities including arts and crafts, team-work games, a bounce house, balloons, healthy snacks and beverages and other activities.


 The City's Moonlight Movie Madness series at Alex Thomas Plaza will continue through the summer with  "Brave," showing at 8:30 pm July 19.



 

In CLEARLAKE, Olympic Drive between Highway 53 and Old Highway 53 

will be closed in both directions Wednesday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. for 

road improvements.


Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Highway 53 via Old Highway 53. 

Westbound traffic will be detoured to Olympic Drive via Old Highway 53. 

Detour signs will be placed advising proper traffic flow.
