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!

Two members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors failed to push through a proposal to repeal the county's guidelines on medical marijuana cultivation and possession.

After listening for nearly two hours to medical marijuana lawyers, patients and advocates, the board voted 5-0 to set it aside.

But the supervisors voted to move forward with two additional proposals: The first would prohibit the use of unoccupied residential buildings to grow marijuana. And the second would establish a “working group” that would include patients, law enforcement and a wide range of people involved in the issue to help the county shape its medical marijuana policies.

The more than two-hour-long hearing came before a packed audience that spilled into the hallway with rows of folding chairs set up to accommodate the crowd.

Many in the audience wore pink stickers that read, “Don't Criminalize Patients.”

 

 

 




Tuesday, The Mendocino Supervisors hired a San Francisco criminal attorney named William Osterhoudt to advise them in their response to the federal subpoena. 


According to Osterhoudt’s website, he graduated from Hastings law school, then he became a staff attorney with the Legal Aid Society of San Francisco. He continued to act as an Assistant Federal Public Defender through 1971, when he entered private practice in San Francisco. " He has been lead counsel in proceedings in the US District Court for the Northern California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and has handled federal appeals in the Second, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits. He maintains a substantial appellate practice in the California Court of Appeal with its various appellate districts.”


The AVA speculates that "with Osterhoudt’s extensive criminal defense experience in federal crimes, it’s hard to avoid the implication that the County may be anticipating criminal charges from the feds."    


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

 

 

 

 

project that will combine businesses and apartments on a vacant lot at 528 N. State St. back for permit approval this week at the Ukiah Planning Commission.

The project includes two buildings with commercial space on the ground floor and apartments on the second floor. The apartments are a mix of studios and one-bedrooms.

A third building will include just apartments, and a fourth building will house storage units and laundry facilities. The project includes a total of 13 apartments.

The plan was received with praise and excitement by the commission when it was originally presented in May.



 

 

 

The Mendocino County Mental Health Board is inviting community members interested in the county mental health care system and the well-being of consumers to apply for vacant seats on the Mental Health Board.  Applicants are appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
