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!

A Second WET storm system MOVEINTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TODAY...BRINGING RAIN AND MUCH COOLER THAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION THROUGH TUESDAY.


DAILY RAINFALL RECORDS ToDAY AND TUESDAY WILL LIKELY BE BROKEN FOR MANY LOCATIONS.


The rare summer precipitation is coming courtesy of an “atmospheric river” expected to wash ashore from the Pacific,  dropping up to 2 inches of rain, said Duane Dykema, National Weather Service meteorologist.

 

Wet conditions could linger until late Tuesday. Daytime highs will be in the low 70s and drop to the upper 50s at night.


By all accounts, fire season has arrived early this year and grasses and other fuels are noticeably drier than usual. The rains will put a damper on the action, albeit a temporary one,.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mendocino County's medical examiner's credibility was called into serious question and the public defender was put on the stand over the possible bungling of a murder case, in an unusual all-day hearing in county Superior Court Friday.


At issue is whether Timothy Elliott, 40, of Hopland, got a fair trial in 2010 and whether he deserves a new one. He claims his public defender, Linda Thompson, was ineffective legal counsel .  He was sentenced to 16 years to life in prison.


County medical examiner Dr. Jason Trent has sworn that the knive in the case caused the fatal wound, sworn twice that it was not and Friday swore that it was the weapon.


Superior Court Judge Ann Moorman on Friday, concluded "Dr. Trent's credibility is damaged,".


In the afternoon, Public Defender Linda Thompson was called to the stand to explain the things she did in her defense case for Elliott.According to Elliott's court-appointed attorney Jan Cole-Wilson, Thompson made three grave errors: not asking for a special hearing on the knife, not cross-examining Trent about the size of the knife. And finally, not raising the issue of the knife and Trent' during her closing argument.


 Moorman scheduled another hearing in August, instructing Sequeira and Cole-Wilson to write briefs explaining why a new trial should or should not be granted.

 

 

 

 A man who evaded arrest for almost 13 years was ordered Thursday to stand trial for the brutal killing of a Ukiah man in August 2000.


“It’s a relief” to finally bring the suspect to justice, the victim’s brother, Dan Williamson, said during a break in a preliminary hearing held to determine whether there was sufficient evidence to warrant a trial.

Jerred Hernandez, 32, was tracked down in Mexico and returned to Mendocino County in May. He is charged with murder, burglary, arson and several special circumstances and allegations in connection with the bludgeoning death of Michael Williamson, 44 at the home of his parents, who were away at the time.

Hernandez is accused of ransacking and burglarizing the home following the killing and trying to cover his tracks by setting fire to the house.

The charges carry the possibility of a death sentence.

Hernandez’s next court appearance is July 9.

 

 

 

This summer the city of Ukiah Community Services Department will be presenting two more free, fun-filled events at our parks.  

Each event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to noon and will have exciting activities including arts and crafts, team-work games, bounce houses, healthy snacks and beverages, and other fun activities.  

The first event was held last Saturday, June 22, at Vinewood Park.

“Family Fun in the Sun” is presented by the city of Ukiah, with special thanks to California Exterminators Alliance, Observatory Surgery Center and Pamela L. Rones, CPA for sponsoring this event.

For more details,  call Ukiah Community Services  at 707-463-6231.
