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!

ANOTHER STRONG PACIFIC STORM IS COMING TUESDAY . GALE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON...NEAR GALE CONDITIONS EXPECTED TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY...


 

HEAVY RAINFALL WILL TAPER OFF BUT ALREADY 5 INCHES OF RAIN HAS FALLEN ACROSS NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA WITH AN ADDITIONAL INCH OR TWO LIKELY ACROSS MENDOCINO COUNTY. 


 

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN EUREKA HAS ISSUED AN  URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY FOR ...ALBION...WILLITS...UKIAH... LAYTONVILLE...COVELO...


FLOOD WARNING CONTINUES FOR

  NAVARRO RIVER , RUSSIAN RIVER NEAR HOPLAND,  EEL RIVER AT FERNBRIDGE  &  MAD RIVER NEAR ARCATA 



 

As a result of this week’s storms , the Mendocino National Forest is implementing a wet weather closure and encouraging visitors to monitor the weather and check conditions before visiting forest recreation sites.

The Upper Lake Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail system was closed at noon Thursday due to more than 2 inches of accumulated rain in 24 hours saturating the trails. The trails are anticipated to reopen after at least 48 hours of no measurable precipitation.



 

Convicted murderer Billy Norbury was sentenced Friday to  50 years to life in state prison for killing his Redwood Valley neighbor, Jamal Andrews.

The law gave Judge John Behnke no discretion in the sentencing,  requiring him to impose a sentence of 25 to life for murder consecutive to a sentence of 25 to life for the special allegation that he used a 30-30 Winchester rifle to kill Andrews, 30, on the night of Jan. 24.

Mendocino County District Attorney David Eyster, who prosecuted the case, said Norbury will not be eligible to apply for parole until he has spent 50 years in prison. With the 312 days already spent in jail, that means he would be 83 when he is first eligible to apply to the state parole board.



 

 

 

 

The Visit Ukiah Task Force met Wednesday and according to program administrator Shannon Riley, the group plans to adopt the new logo and the slogan  "Far out. Nearby."


"We believe the far out' brand captures the essence of Ukiah because it is inclusive of all the assets and particularly the independent or eclectic vibe that is so prevalent in this community," said Riley."

 

By the end of December, the full campaign, including the website and brochure, will be revealed.



 

 

 

The Lake County Sheriff's Office has requested independent legal counsel as a result of Anthony Farrington seeking documents on behalf of a then-legal client.

Farrington is the District 4 Lake County Supervisor and Lake County Sheriff Frank Rivero alleges a conflict of interest.

A memorandum to County Counsel Anita Grant, states that the Lake County Sheriff's Office is in possession of a subpoena "representing a guy who is alleged to have had more than 800 marijuana plantsWe have been working diligently to eradicate marijuana. As a sitting county supervisor, he controls the purse strings that allow us to go and fight crimes. And then he is an attorney defending the people we are trying to prosecute, therein lies the problem."

Rivero suggested that Farrington step down as a supervisor.

 Farrington responded saying, "I am no longer representing Mr. Brooner, and the change in legal representation has nothing to do with

Sheriff Rivero's pathetic attempt to challenge my integrity. Unfortunately for Sheriff Rivero, he is the only person that has broken the law by not complying with my subpoena request for documents. Sheriff Rivero's violation of state law can subject him to a fine, jail, or a warrant for his arrest. "


On Thursday County counsel Grant responded to the sheriff:

"To credibly allege a conflict which justifies independent legal counsel in the above circumstances is flatly impossible. "
