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!

Mendocino Sheriff Tom Allman got approval from the county Supervisors last week, 5-0, to spend $33,000 on a modular building to allow more space for classes offered to inmates at the jail .

"The jail population is increasing to the point where it's becoming a concern," Allman told the board. The urgency came because the current building, a modular unit was scheduled to be shipped back to the Sacramento Valley. Allman said that his jail's population has increased by about 25 percent going from a daily average of 109 to 255 .

Inmate Services Coordinator Vicki Phillips-Stout said the new building would offer the potential of up to 21 more classes for inmates in higher security classifications, and to add services that would teach job, computer and possibly parenting skills.

Allman told the board  that if it approved the purchase of the 12-foot-by-40-foot building, "in theory, we could have it up and running in about two weeks." 










Wednesday, May 1, is the official grand opening of the newly built Mendocino College Lake Center located at 2565 Parallel Drive  The public is invited to attend at 3pm.

The $15 million Lake Center located on 31 acres with views of the nearby lake boasts 15,000 square feet of buildings which include  student commons area, public meeting space, counseling, computer lab and multiple classrooms. The campus opened on Jan. 14,with a total of 676 students. For information, contact the Mendocino President's office at 468-3071.














The Fort Bragg City Council is holding a special meeting to look at the
"chalet" structure it is purchasing from Georgia Pacific, and to look at
possible locations for another building to house the Blue Whale skeleton on the GP headlands.  The tour will also look at an existing metal building on the GP property, that could be re-cycled to temporarily house the bones of the blue whale.

The public is invited to attend this planning and brainstorming session, for  the "Noyo Center".

Meet at the Cypress Street Gate of the Georgia-Pacific Property, at
2:00 P.M. on Thursday, May 2, 2013.






The Health and Human Services Agency located at 1120 S. Dora St. in Ukiah are settling back into their normal space.  The public will once again have three lobby entrances into the building, one for Public Health services, one for Behavioral Health services and one for Recovery services.







Tuesday, April 30th and Wednesday, May 1st, the Fort Bragg Police Department building will be painted. The Office will be closed both days from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. Due to the possibility of overspray, the entire parking lot will be closed both days. 

Anyone accessing the Police Department in the afternoon will need to park on the street. 

Due to the closure the front office staff will not be available for our usual fingerprinting on Tuesday morning and remind citizens that fingerprinting will be available Wednesday afternoon from 1:30-3:30 and then again on Thursday from 9:00-11:00.
