Ways to Connect

How time flies... when your computer breaks down and you get a summer cold. That's my excuse for neglecting to pester you relentlessly about the Connla concert, which is now less than one week away!

Fortunately many of you didn't need to be reminded and have already got your tickets. If you haven't yet, get on down to Harvest Market or Out of This World and pick 'em up.

Oak & Thorn presents: Connla

Friday, September 21
Eagles Hall, Fort Bragg
Doors open 6:30 PM 

Sheriff Tom Alllman took a moment this morning to call into KZYX and let the public know that the suspect in the Monday night shooting that closed hwy 101 between Ukiah and Wilits for several hours has been caught and place in custody.

Sheriff Allman was still putting together all the details for a report and will make announcement later in the day but for right now he wanted the public to know that the suspect is in custody and that the roads are all open and he thanked the public for thier understanding during this event.

The KZYX news team will have more this afternoon.

Tickets are $75 and include music, food, and drink. Proceeds to benefit KZYX.

I'm pleased to say that we were able to make repairs to our 2nd back-up system and get our 91.5 transmitter broadcasting again at full power. We believe this repair should hold until we get our main and main back-up units back from being fully rebuilt to like new status.

We dodged a bullet and hope to be in a better position real soon.

Thanks to our contract engineer Brian Henry for his invaluable help.

Once again, please remember it is with your financial support that we get all of this done.
