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!

FIRST SIGNIFICANT rains of the season could 

arrive Monday or Tuesday. “It’s too early to tell 

specific details about how much rain we’ll get. ,” 

said meteorologist Austin Cross of the National 

Weather Service. 



The Hopland man who disappeared after taking the body of his 5-month-old son to a Ukiah hospital three weeks ago was 

found dead Wednesday of an apparent self-inflicted firearm wound.

Casimir Janusz, 36, was reported missing Oct. 16, and several law enforcement agencies conducted a three-day search in an area that near where a woman told sheriff’s deputies she had  been walking her dog in the 300 block of  MacMillan Drive in Hopland when she encountered the body in a brushy area. 

Sheriff’s officials said in a statement that an 

autopsy has been scheduled for today as part of 

the coroner’s investigation “but initial scene 

information suggests Janusz died as the result of 

suicide with a firearm.” The results of tests to 

reveal the cause of the child's death have not yet 

been completed.


Mendocino County DDavid Eyster has 

announced the hiring of a former deputy district 

attorney and two new prosecutors to fill existing 

staff vacancies.

Eyster also promoted a veteran staff member to 

serve as the supervising DA investigator.

“We need these positions filled just to keep pace,”

 said Eyster.

Returning to the office is former prosecutor Kevin

Davenport, who has been practicing law in Portland, 

Ore. since 2006.  Eyster said Davenport has joined 

Deputy DA Tim Stoen in the Fort Bragg office on 

the Mendocino Coast, and has already prosecuted

 and won a felony jury trial since his return.

DA Eyster said the two new deputy district attorneys 

are Jessica Abramson,

 a Sonoma County native, and Jeffrey Boyd, a former 

Riverside County resident.  Both are assigned to the 


misdemeanor trial team.

Eyster’s new supervising DA investigator is Kevin 

Bailey, a veteran law enforcement investigator and

 top aide to Chief Investigator Tim Kiely.

Eyster said Bailey’s experience reflects “…traits 

that ultimately help all of us help victims, and traits

 that bring honor and respect to what we do – and 

do well – day in and day out.”

A 24-year-old Eureka man is missing after fleeing from Mendocino Sheriff's deputies during a traffic stop.

The UForest Service had attempted to stop two

vehicles leaving the Mendocino National Forest 

that were believed to be involved with cultivating 

marijuana on forest lands.

One driver and one passenger from each vehicle 

leapt from the moving vehicles, which crashed as 

the suspects fled into the woods.  In one of the 

crashed vehicles, officers found 40 pounds of 

processed marijuana.

family member of Eureka resident Artemio Garcia Chavez, 24, called the Sheriff's Office to report 

Chavez had been in one of the vehicles and they 

hadn't heard from Chavez since Oct. 26. Another 

suspect told them that Chavez had called him about three hours after the incident, saying was “up on

 the hill and had a sprained ankle.”

The three other suspects “were not interested in 

coming forward to assist law enforcement.” 

Deputies, family members, Forest Service fire 

crews and police officers, as well as Mendocino 

Search and Rescue , combed the area but could 

not find Chavez. He is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 

weighing 190 pounds, with short black, shaven hair and brown eyeslast seen wearing blue jeans, 

tennis shoes and a gray hoodie.

Anyone who has information should contact the Tip Line at 707-234-2100.
