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 California Department of Public Health has released a warning  to not eat Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend of frozen berries sold through Costco stores as they may be linked to a multistate outbreak of hepatitis A.

At least 30 cases are being investigated nationwide with six confirmed illnesses linked to the product in California in Humboldt, and four other counties. Three individuals have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.


 Dr. Ron Chapman, state health officer, says  “Anyone who has consumed this specific product in the last 14 days should contact their doctor to discuss possible hepatitis A prevention and treatment options.”


Costco has removed this product from stores and is notifying their member customers who have bought this product. 

According to public health officials, symptoms of hepatitis A include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, joint pain and jaundice. Symptoms develop two to six weeks after consuming contaminated food . If you have these symptoms, Public Health says don't go to work.

The California Assembly stalled a bill Friday that would have created a state agency to tax and regulate medical marijuana.

Assembly Bill 473 would have established a Division of Medical Marijuana Regulation , housed in the state's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, aimed at establishing guidelines for the cultivation, sale and taxation of cannabis. It would have required dispensaries to register with the agency.

Assembly members rejected the bill on a 37-35 vote, with 41 needed for passage. The bill stalled due to a procedural issue that led to the vote being prematurely closed. In a news release, Senator Ammiano vowed to continue pursuing the bill and focus on "getting this to the governor's desk for his signature this year."














Caltrans has announced that routine maintenance work will continue for two Mendocino County bridges.

Painting the Salmon Creek Bridge on Highway 1 will continue from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

One-way traffic control with temporary signals will be in effect 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Expect five-minute delays.

Routine maintenance of the Albion River Bridge on Route 1 will begin on today from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weekdays. Expect five minute delays.

Traffic at the Albion River Bridge will be open in both directions during nights and weekends.

Work at both bridges will continue through the fall.









The Bureau of Land Management has started summer fire restrictions on public lands throughout much of Mendocino and Lake counties. However, BLM properties in northern Mendocino County and Humboldt counties have not announced summer restrictions yet.

The restrictions are needed due to dry fuels and fire danger in the region. All campfires and barbeques are now prohibited in the area administered by the Ukiah BLM field office except in the following campgrounds: Buckhorn, Maycamas, Red Mountain, Sheldon Creek Cow Mountain; Blue Oak Campground at Indian Valley Reservoir; and Lower Hunting Creek Campground in Knoxville.

Portable stoves with gas, or pressured liquid fuel are authorized with a valid California campfire permit, but the public is asked to be extremely careful and carry a shovel and water at all times.

The summer restrictions include:No internal combustion engines allowed off established roads.  No smoking, except at designated areas. No shooting using incendiary, tracer, steel core or armor piercing ammunition.No fireworks.

For information, contact the Ukiah BLM Office at 468-4000.


Saturday, June 8th & 22nd at 10:00 am, there will be an Interpretative walk at Big River . 

Meet at the large kiosk on the east side of Big River parking lot, bring comfortable shoes, water, and sunscreen.  Walks are approximately 2 miles on even terrain.
