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 week after Lake County declared a local emergency, the Board of Supervisors gave Special Districts Administrator Mark Dellinger the go-ahead to waive the formal bidding process to hire a civil sanitary engineer to come up with a design for moving the damaged infrastructure at Lakeside Heights where sinking ground has destroyed several homes.

The board also approved a transfer $350,000 from a county fund for an emergency loan to help cover the work.

Time is of the essence in the situation. “The movement hasn’t stopped,” Dellinger said. “It continues to move.”

Dellinger told the board that a sewer bypass will remain in place until they can implement a longterm solution. He said he was “pretty desperate” to get engineering services under contract so they could start looking at how to relocate the water and sewer infrastructure

The county is pursuing funding through the California Department of Public Health and the California Emergency Management Agency – thanks to help from the local Office of Emergency Services – to assist with moving the water and sewer infrastructure at Lakeside Heights, Dellinger said.









Yesterday, the Mendocino BOS met and KZYX's John Sako was there:  audio sako A

Because April is child abuse awareness month, The Supervisors also received a presentation by Tapestry Family Services and mendocino First 5, and others that contained some startling Facts: audio Sako B

This huge increase in child abuse they said was linked directltly to alcohol and substance abuse.















After representatives of Save Our Little Lake Valley (SOLLV) requested a meeting with Caltrans Bypass Project Manager, Geoffrey Wright, and were ignored - despite repeated inquiries-, a group of 75 protesters marched to the CalTrans HQ in Willits Wednesday morning at 10 am. SOLLV had told Wright to expect them. However, when four representatives - including Willits City Council member Madge Strong - came to the door they found locked and a sign that said "Closed."


audio Sara Grusky


Two people remained behind on the doorstep vowing to remain there.




A Davis man lost for a week in the Lake County wilderness after a car accident apparently survived by eating pine nuts.


Daniel Thompson, 25, had set out on a solo camping trip when he lost control of his car when it skidded and went down an embankment, and Thompson didn't have cellphone service to call for help.


Thompson's advice for campers:"Learn edible plants in your area, because when you find youself lostrunoff and pine nuts make a (lousy) diet."
