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 cold blast hit the North Coast tonight, bringing below-freezing overnight temperatures through the weekend.

The sharp dip is expected to fill homeless shelters and could threaten outdoor plants.

"Overall, this may be some of the coldest weather we've had this winter,"  meteorologist Bob Smerbeck said . "Anyone with susceptible plants better have a game plan beginning Thursday night."

Daytime highs are expected to be in the 40s with cloudy skies and rain possible Saturday night.

The chilly conditions will continue through the beginning of next week.

The CHP warned black ice could form on roads.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A consortium of local organizations will conduct the first comprehensive survey of the homeless in Lake County Friday, Jan. 25.

The goal is to canvass the groups’ entire service territory across Lake County and seek individuals and families who have challenges securing permanent housing.

The survey will give the organizations information they will need to apply for federal grants for such needs as housing vouchers and other services.

The count will include the entire county, not just shelters.

They are seeking more volunteers to help with the count – from going to homeless camps and recycling centers, to working at specific reporting locations which are still being determined.

Potential volunteer contact Christopher Taliaferro at the Employment Development Department, 707-262-3111.

 

 

 


 

GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN SAYS CALIFORNIA’S PRISON STATE OF EMERGENCY IS NOW OVER… AND HE’S FILING LEGAL MOTIONS TO END FEDERAL PRISON OVERSIGHT AND END A COURT-ORDERED CAP ON THE PRISON POPULATION AIMED AT IMPROVING PRISON HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE.

CHRISTOPHER MARTINEZ REPORTS FROM SACRAMENTO. 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $64 million to 43 projects that will reduce traffic congestion and repair highways, local streets, and bridges.   

The allocations include $42 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. The remaining allocations ($22 million) came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars. 


Humboldt County - $20,000 for the construction of sidewalks and bike lanes on School Road between Fisher Road and Salmon Avenue in McKinleyville. 


Lake County - $718,000 for the purchase of five diesel powered transit vehicles. 


 

 

 

 

Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) announced today that he has been appointed to two key committees in the 113th Congress: the House Committee on Natural Resources and the House Budget Committee, whose jurisdictions mirror Huffman’s earlier state Assembly committee assignments.   

Join John Sakowisc's on "All About Money" at 9 am, with the first live interview in Mendocino county with Congressman Jared Huffman.
