Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

We are pleased to announce that the Community Advisory Board (CAB) will be holding several meetings in the further reaches of our listening area. These will be informal meetings, meaning that there may not be a quorum of CAB members present, and nothing will be voted on. The first meeting will be held in Elk on Tuesday evening, February 23rd, at the Greenwood School, 5150 S. Hwy 1, at 6:30 pm.

The CAB wants to hear from you, discuss what you are interested in regarding KZYX, and will take your comments to the next KZYX Board of Directors meeting. There will be snacks and beverages. For more information on the CAB meeting in Elk, call (707) 877-3475.

Thanks to those members who are running for open positions on the Board of Directors. To the right of this article you will find a list of candidates. Soon we will be posting the candidate statements. The on air candidate forum will be held on Thursday, March 3rd at 7pm.

Earlier this week I met with our former General Manager (John Coate) and our transmitter engineer. I was told the transmitters are in very good shape. The connections with our studios in Mendocino and Willits are not working well, and are going through complete software upgrades at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience to our programmers from Willits and Mendocino, and to our listeners, who have had to experience frequent drop outs of the studio connections. Our staff is standing by during all of our remote studio shows, and many of our programmers are coming to Philo to do their shows until the upgrades are completed and tested.

Thanks for your patience. Just so you know, some of us have been working 15-20 hour days to sort out technical difficulties and details. We want all of our broadcasts to run smoothly, and we have a steep learning curve to do what our long time Program Director/Music Director (Mary Aigner) and Operations Manager (Rich Culbertson) were able to accomplish on a daily basis. Mary retired after 22 years with the station, and Rich resigned after eight years of superb technical support. We have a big legacy to live up to!

KZYX News has a correction to an item run about Will Parrish concerning the original plea agreement which he rejected in favor of a jury trial.


According to the AVA, the DA asked for 12 months of probation and charges of $250 for each day Parish was on the work site of the Caltrans Willits bypass, plus approximately $250 in fines and fees totaling about $3,000. Judge Richard Henderson gave Parrish a couple of weeks to think it over and released him on his own recognizance on the condition that he stay away from the bypass work site. 


Parrish now faces 16 misdemeanor counts with a maximum sentence of six months each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




Mary Anne Landis reports that the Ukiah City Council has made no decision regarding the process to fill Mari Rodin's seat except that if an election 

were to be held, it would be March 5 due to the need to schedule the 

election after her vacancy actually exists with at least 114 days before the 

actual date of a regularly scheduled election. UCC will be discussing this

 issue in August to make a decision.


Also,Hull and Piffero were given an appreciative proclamation regarding 

their 37 acre donation of land on the western hills.


 The council resolved (5-0) to continue the Palace Hotel until 2nd meeting in August. A total of 68 

tons of lath, plaster, wood and metal have been removed from the first 

phase of debris removal, All recycled when possible.  Council member

Landis was curious about plans for weatherizing the roof and was assured

 by owner Eladia Laines that funding is available to do this before rains start. 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

July 1st Vermont became the 15th state to decriminalize marijuana possession (two others have made it legal).  Vermont has eliminatecriminal penalties for possession of up to an ounce of marijuana and replaced them with civil fines for adults and generally with diversion for those under 21.

 

The next step for Vermont policymakers will be to consider legal alternatives to the illicit market for marijuana. Attorney General William Sorrell has publicly argued in favor of decriminalizing plants, and many legislators have made the case for replacing marijuana prohibition with a taxed and regulated system.



 

 

 

 

 

County libraries are accepting food donations through Aug. 17.The 

Mendocino County Library is partnering with local food banks this summer 

in a canned food drive . The county library is joining more than 70 other 

libraries throughout California in the statewide “Acquire a Taste for Giving” 

campaign.  During the food drive, the county library will offer a Food-For-Fines forgiveness: for each nonperishable canned food item brought to any County library, $2 will be subtracted from a patron’s overdue fines. Only 

non-perishable, unexpired, store-sealed items will be accepted. No glass, please.


For more information, please call 467-2590.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consider This; Friday @ 9:00 AM

Join Stuart Campbell and his guest Marlene Zuk from the University of Minnesota, an evolutionary biologist and author of such books as Sex on Six Legs: Lessons on Life, Love & Language from the Insect World; and Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us About Sex, Diet, and How We Live.
