Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

Morning News for Wednesday, November 7th

The Mendo Board of Supes yesterday discussed the possible development of a clean energy program in the county's unincorporated areas,  and monitoring of the Marine Life Protection Act .


 At 11 a.m., the board considered developing a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program.  The General Services Administration "has discovered the option of piggybacking off of another city/county competitive process which would eliminate the need and the expense of going out for proposal," according to a staff report.

If approved, it would allow property owners to assess themselves on their property taxes for the cost of energy-efficient and water-saving improvements, such as solar panels, low-flow toilets, double-pained windows, weather stripping, rain-collection systems, caulking or even Energy STAR appliances.

At 1:30 p.m., the board heard an update on the North Coast Marine Protected Area monitoring planning from the marine protected area Monitoring Enterprise, a program of the California Ocean Science Trust. 

Also on the board's agenda but not timed is a proposal to approve a "memorandum of agreement" between the U.S. Forest Service, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the county of Mendocino to  help improve interagency relationships by facilitating early and frequent communication between the defined federal agencies and counties to foster a more productive partnership .




The California Public Utilities Commission began a two week meeting on November 2nd  to discuss the Smartmeter Op Out regulation they accepted last year. The meeting includes the Department of Ratepayer Advocates, The Utility Reform Network (TURN,) Aglet, the Emf Safety Network, The Center for Electro Smog, and others. 

Currently many stubborn Mendocino residents, who refused the so called 'punitive' opt out charges in their bills have received 15 and 3 day notice of power or gas cut off . 

The discussion includes: unresolved health concerns, the initial installation cost of analog meters, the right to self read and avoid Opt Out monthly costs, and the double charge of opt out plus the rate increase that pays for the smartmeters and the roll out.



There are many facets to the issue, but the most controversial is the health impacts to those individuals who may have become electro hypersensitive because of Smartmeters, and can not live in proximity of a meter.  




The next in a series of community meetings on the new Clearlake General Plan will take place this weekend.

The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 10., in the council chambers at Clearlake City Hall, 14050 Olympic Drive.

The Nov. 10 meeting will focus on the 11 different elements of the general plan and the community’s preference on different future d

More information about the plan and the process to create it can be found at www.planclearlake.weebly.com .
