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!

AM News for Wednesday, 7.17.13

Federal prosecutors have not yet decided whether they will seek the death penalty in the case of a Kelseyville man accused of shooting to death a 

convenience store clerk, Forrest Seagrave, in January.


31-year-old Jonathan Mota, who is being held in an Alameda Jail in Oakland, made his first appearances in federal court in San Francisco this week on the four counts against himuse of a firearm in a murder, use of a firearm during a 

crime of violence,  and felon in possession of a firearm.


Mota and his attorney, Richard Mazer, returned to court on Friday for a 20-minute status conference, court filings showed.


While Mota's indictment states that penalties for the charges against him 

could earn him life in prison, minutes of the Friday hearing noted that the 

government “has not determined if matter will be treated as a capital 

prosecution.”


Mota remained in Lake County Jail custody until April, when he was 

transported to the Oakland jail facility after federal authorities took custody 

of him in the weapons case, as Lake County News has reported.



 

 

 

 

 

 

Congress members from Colorado and Washington are planning to try again to help marijuana business access banking services.


A bill to be introduced Wednesday revives an effort to shield financial

 institutions from prosecution if they allow marijuana businesses to access 

any banking services. Financial institutions now violate federal drug law if 

they allow marijuana banking, leaving the industry running on mostly cash in the states that allow marijuana. The pot banking bill would allow 

businesses to make deposits, apply for loans and accept credit cards.


Colorado Rep. Ed Perlmutter and Washington Rep. Denny Heck are lead 

sponsors. The measure faces dim prospects in the Republican-controlled House.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next Ukiah Fun in the Sun events will occur July 20 at Oak Manor Park and Aug. 10 at Orchard Park. Each free event will take place from 9:30 to

 noon and will feature constant supervised activities including arts and crafts, team-work games, a bounce house, balloons, healthy snacks and beverages and other activities.


 The City's Moonlight Movie Madness series at Alex Thomas Plaza will continue through the summer with  "Brave," showing at 8:30 pm July 19.



 

In CLEARLAKE, Olympic Drive between Highway 53 and Old Highway 53 

will be closed in both directions Wednesday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. for 

road improvements.


Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Highway 53 via Old Highway 53. 

Westbound traffic will be detoured to Olympic Drive via Old Highway 53. 

Detour signs will be placed advising proper traffic flow.


 

 

Stay Tuned for Forthright Radio;  @ 9:00 AM
