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!

The Mendocino  Board of Supervisors will hear today the annual report on 

homelessness .

The report is based on a homeless census and survey conducted Jan. 24

People living in shelters are counted the evening before volunteers gather 

in the early morning hours to count those living in cars, under bridges and in other places. For the unsheltered count, workers prepare weeks in advance, mapping zones and seeking out homeless encampments.

Teams of three meet at 5 a.m. on the day of the unsheltered count, and 

count only people and vehicles.

The number of people counted as unsheltered, 1169, was about 11 percent lower this year than in 2011, 1314. The number in emergency shelter was 

virtually the same, however the number in transition housing today, 71, was almost 75% greater than in 2011 when there were 42. 








According to an email to KZYX News, the second Search and Rescue effort to find Erik Lamberg - after KZYX listeners developed new leads - failed to 

find the 51 year old man.

36 people and 3 dogs spent an entire day Wednesday searching near the

Clare Mill Depot . Despite the strong signal of 4 dogs lthe previous week, 

they did not find the missing man nor any additional leads as to where he 

might be. "As Lt. Barney put it, we are back to square one.The Sheriff will 

investigate any and all leads immediately, but they are waiting for new leads at this point.

Mrs Lamberg writes "It was the KZYX interview on public radio in Mendocino that generated the best and almost only big lead to date." 












After a Friday morning hearing, Mendocino County judge Cindee Mayfield 

granted the city of Lakeport a preliminary injunction in its suit against the 

county and the sheriff over access to law enforcement records, saying the

suit had a reasonable likelihood of success on its merits.

Mayfield found that the parties' history of implementing the dispatch 

agreement showed substantial evidence of an intent to allow access to the 

records information management system, or RIMS.

She also granted the continuation of a temporary restraining order she 

granted in the case on July 1, which prevents Rivero from once again abruptly cutting off Lakeport Police's access to the records.

In addition, Mayfield found that the potential harm to the city and its police 

department far outweighed potential harm to the sheriff's office and the 















Several up coming meetings on the coast will be deciding some very important issues.

At the joint Mendocino Board of Supervisors and the Fort Bragg City Council, Tuesday, August 13th – 10:00 AM at Fort Bragg Town Hall.

On the consent agenda are: adoption of a resolution calling for a halt to 

fracking along the California coastline and a letter to the California Coastal Commission regarding a proposed guard rail and Highway 1 widening project at the Navarro River. At approximately 10:15, the Board will 

consider the appeal by the Westport Advisory Council of a Coastal 

Administrator decision in favor a plan by California State Parks to remove the Haul Road in order to restore the Ten Mile Dunes, instead of 

allowing coastal access.

 At 3 pm, there will be a joint meeting of the Board and the Ft. Bragg City 

Council to discuss and possibly take action regarding where a  Central 

Coast Solid Waste Transfer Station will be located. Two sites are under 

consideration: the existing site on Road 409 and a new site along Highway 20.

The proceedings are broadcast on : www.mendocinoaccess.org.
