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!

The City of Fort Bragg has requested that all businesses and residents take immediate actions to reduce water consumption. Conservation measures 

include: reducing landscape irrigation; refraining from washing sidewalks, 

driveways, and buildings; using shut-off mechanisms on hoses; only serving water to restaurant patrons upon 

request; asking patrons at lodging establishments to reuse their linens and 

towels; etc.

Since late July, the City of Fort Bragg has been on a “restricted pumping 

regimen” at the Noyo River water diversion. While the City’s water treatment personnel have maintained sufficient water storage with water from the 

Noyo River diversion and the two other water sources, late-summer flows continue to decline. 

The City is hoping that, if everyone pitches in to conserve water for the next few weeks, they can avoid declaration of a “water emergency” and 

implementation of mandatory water conservation measures.

Questions  can be directed to Dave Goble at 707961-2824 Ext. 117











State Sen. Noreen Evans will not seek re-election at the end of her current term, despite term limits allowing her to 

remain in office until 2018That will put her seat in play in 2014.

"Sacramento is not my home and politics not how I planned to spend my life," Evans wrote in a Facebook post. "Though I enjoyed my job as a lawmaker, my first love is the administration of justice."

Evans won her Senate seat in 2010 after serving three terms in the 

Assembly. As chair of the Senate Judiciary committee, Evans has been 

vocal in pushing back on cuts to the court system budget .

The Santa Rosa Democrat took credit for writing the nation's first 

Homeowner’s Bill of Rights, improving the foster care system, protecting the coast, keeping state parks open and preserving CEQA.

She plans to return to practicing private law and already has been earning 

extra income as a lawyer while serving in Sacramento, state financial 

disclosure forms show.

Evans’ announcement has fueled speculation about who might replace her. Names mentioned about include former Assembly members Michael Allen 

and Patty Berg; current Sonoma County Supervisor Mike McGuire; Marin 

County Supervisor Susan Adams; and San Rafael councilman Damon 

Connolly. No names yet from Mendocino.




 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced it will host a 

public meeting and begin accepting public comments on its proposed plan 

to cleanup Yosemite Slough, an inter-tidal water channel in the Bayview District of San Francisco that was found 

to contain high levels of contaminants, especially polychlorinated biphenyls (or “PCBs”) and lead.

EPA’s proposed cleanup plan consists of removing the top layer of the most contaminated mud from the slough, and installing a protective barrier of 

clean sand and mud that will prevent future impacts.  Public Meeting on 

Proposed Cleanup Plan for Yosemite Slough will be Wednesday August 21 

from 6:00–8:00 p.m. At Bret Harte School 1035 Gilman Avenue in SF.

The Mendocino Public Safety Foundation has launched a new 

scholarship program to recruit local candidates for peace officer 

training, followed by employment in the Mendocino Sheriff’s and three City Police departments.

The program will fund costs at the Santa Rosa Junior College police 

academy or correctional officers’ academy as a loan that will be 

forgiven upon three years’ local service as a sheriff’s deputy, 

corrections deputy or police officer, including service as a reserve officer.

The Foundation will invite applications which will be available at 





Stay Tuned for Takes on the World  @ 9:00 AM with host

Jeff Blankfort.
