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!

On the Redwood Coast, Rain today & tomorrow. It will be Cloudy with a slight chance of showers through the weekend and Sunny beginning next Monday.


 

RAIN WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES TODAY THROUGH TONIGHT WITH WIDESPREAD AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES AND LOCALIZED AMOUNTS OF 3 TO 5 INCHES ACROSS SOUTHWEST-FACING TERRAIN




 

 

 

 

The union for Lake county sheriff's deputies urged Anthony Farrington, a Lake County supervisor and private attorney, to resign from elected office should he continue representing people in cases involving any county agency.

"As an attorney, Farrington is required to place his client's best interests ahead of all other interests, including those of the county, which Supervisor Farrington is required to serve," Deputy Sheriff's Association president Gary Frace wrote on the organization's behalf Monday.

Farrington, who began practicing law in May and was elected to his fourth term in office in June, vowed Monday to continue serving as the supervisor of District 4.

"I'm not going to step down," Farrington said.

He planned to send a request to the California Fair Political Practices Commission requesting a written advice letter on whether there is a conflict with him practicing criminal or civil law while serving on the Board of Supervisors.

If the commission deems a conflict exists, Farrington said he would "change my practice to conform to any concerns that they may have.

The comments by the union came in the wake of Farrington asking for documents from the Lake County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) on behalf of a now-former client.



The landlord for Oakland's largest medical marijuana dispensaryHarborside Health Centercannot evict the business just because the federal government has threatened to seize the property.

Harborside Health Center faced eviction from 1840 Embarcadero after U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag threatened the building's owner with seizure of the property, citing federal drug laws.

Chretien filed an eviction notice in Alameda County Superior Court saying Harborside has violated its lease by violating federal law.

But Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo ruled that under state law, Harborside was running a legal business and had not violated its lease.

The ruling will result in Harborside staying open until the federal courts decide if Haag has a right to seize the property and attempt to shut down the dispensary. That case is expected to begin next month with a pretrial conference.



 

A packed house of Lake County residents learned firsthand about the Clear Lake hitch and the petition to list it as an endangered species at a workshop last night.

The Center for Biological Diversity filed a petition to list the Clear Lake hitch as endangered species on Sept. 25 because surveys have shown a dramatic decline in the number of fish. 

John Ambrose, an expert on endangered species, explained that the FWS has 90 days make an initial finding on the merits of the petition and if they decide that a species should be investigatedthe agency then has one year .

In practical terms it could take years before the hitch is actually declared endangered

Greg Giusti of the University of California system said there are far fewer hitch today than there were 20 years agodue to less plankton food , poor spawning conditions & predation by other fish and birds.



 

 

 

 

Stay Tuned for Forthright Radio; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Joy LaClaire’s guest is award winning political cartoonist and activist, Stephanie McMillan.  Her latest book, THE BEGINNING OF THE AMERICAN FALL:  A COMICS JOURNALIST INSIDE THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT, was awarded the RFKCenter for Justice and Human Rights 2012 Journalism Award.  Also an update of Occupy's outstanding performance in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, even after so many had been speaking of it in the past tense.
