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!

While Mendocino county is reporting grape harvest yields 20-25%  higher than usual, Lake County's yields may be slightly less than anticipated but the quality is promising to be better than average.


Lake County vineyard acreage remains steady at about 8,500 acres, and this year's winegrape harvest is expected to be valued at $35 million-$40 million. 


 

Dozens of Mendocino wine leaders agree that the 2012 season is shaping up to be one of the best on record. A lack of rain late in the season, combined with warm days, cool nights and an ideal growing season have produced bountiful crops . Mendocino is home to 91 bonded wineries and 343 vineyard entities.




 

The manager of a Clearlake Oaks shopping center said he is retracting his offer to give the Lake Sheriff’s Office a $1 a month lease for a substation location after he said the sheriff mischaracterized and attacked his offer.


Milt Pereira contacted Lake County News to say he was no longer willing to rent to the sheriff’s office in the wake of statements Sheriff Frank Rivero made at the Board of Supervisors Oct. 16 meeting. 

Pereira, who watched the meeting on television, said Rivero acted “like a juvenileI’m not going to deal with that clown,” said Pereira. “I really don’t need the 12 bucks.”

When asked to respond to the news, Rivero called the reporter, Elizabeth Larson, a liar and said he would refuse to release further information to the Lake County News, nor to respond to requests about public safety matters except through the lengthy Public Records Act process, which he previously has used to block Lake County News’ information requests.

Here's a story that fits into my "It seemed like a good idea at the time" file:


Last week, Kristen Wright of Leggett, realizing that she had been cheated in the sale of four pounds of marijuana called the Sheriff's Dept to report a robbery. Wright told the Sherrif's office that the men  had given her four bundles of cash which they had represented as being $20,000.  


 

Wright then realized that only the bills on the top side of the stacks were $100 bills, the rest were $1 bills.  


 

Deputies intercepted both the suspects and Ms Wright. They were all sent to Mendocino County Jail, with bail set at $30,000.00 each. 



 

 

 

 

Forthright Radio; Wednesday @ 9:00 AM

Join Joy LaClaire on Halloween morning with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, David Cay Johnston They’ll discuss the outrageous iniquities of corporations in his latest book, THE FINE PRINT: HOW BIG COMPANIES USE 'PLAIN ENGLISH' TO ROB YOU BLIND. Listeners will be particularly interested in his unique research into why they still only have dial-up internet access, even though the law mandates otherwise... or does it?
