Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

The sheriffs of Sonoma and Mendocino counties joined law enforcement from across the state to tell Gov. Jerry Brown about the impact of the diversion of state prisoners to county supervision.

From dental floss added to the commissary, metal doors replacing wooden ones and an increase in violence, the impacts have been wide-ranging, North Coast jail officials said.

The average daily population at the Mendocino County Jail jumped from about 195 inmates prior to October 2011 to about 275 inmates today, Sheriff Allman said.

Jails were once places where inmates stayed for a year or less.

Now, the longest terms currently being served are 15 years for a woman at the Sonoma County jail and 14 years for a man in Mendocino County.

“That was beyond what anyone had thought about,” Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said. “No one would have thought it would have come to this.”





The Willits City Council heard more than three hours of testimony by local citizens objecting to the way the city was dealing with ongoing violations of the city's highway agreement with CalTrans. City Manager Adrienne Moore sent a letter on April 26 to the contractor advising him that the city wished resolution of this issue within 90 days. 

The issue was placed on the agenda by Councilwoman Madge Strong and in the end her motion to change the timeframe for negotiations died due to lack of a second. Strong focused on bypass contractors using city streets to deliver materials even though no agreement to allow this has been reached with the city council.

Strong and several others expressed concern about whether CalTrans was actually going to complete the scheduled  Sherwood Road interchange . But CalTrans spokesman Phil Frisbie said "Caltrans is fully committed to improving the intersection. "

On the issue of why the contractor is not installing a haul road and is instead using city streets Frisbie replied:  the contractor believes using city streets to deliver materials will be much more efficient, and could shorten the construction time by as much as a full year.."







The Willits Police Department and the Book Juggler owners have partnered with the National Shooting Sports Foundation to distribute free gun locks to the Willits community.

Gun owners, 18 years of age and older, may come to the Willits Police Department and request a gun lock and information packet. Each safety kit has a cable style lock designed to fit outside the trigger guard and helpful instructions and other gun storage tips.





KZYX has just learned that Al Jazeera has cancelled all radio affiliations in the USA, with their afternoon program - the one we run at 6:30 PM - going away May 31.  Their morning programs will end by August 1.   Stay tuned.
