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!

According to an an article in the Willits Weekly, Caltrans, September 13 sent 

the Pomo Indians a letter that stated that an archaeological site with Pomo 

cultural resources known to Caltrans has “been destroyed by construction 

activities,” said Tribal Chair Mike Fitzgerral.

“Caltrans has discovered that one of the sites” “is actually located within the ADI [area of direct impact]” of the project. “As you know,” the notice 

continues, “wick drains have been installed in that area and 3 feet of fill has 

been placed.”

According to the tribe’s statement, CA-MEN-3571 was identified by Caltrans in 2011, during archaeological investigations of the area, as part of the bypass;s “area of potential effects,” or APE, but

later, in 2012, Caltrans claimed that changes to the … APE resulted in the site no longer being located in the project footprint.”

“However,” the statement from the tribe continues: “Caltrans has just 

confirmed that the site does indeed exist within the APE and has, over the 

last four months, been severely impacted by the removal of topsoil and the 

installation of 1400-1500 wick drains. What little, if anything, remains of it is now inundated with 3

 feet of fill.”

A September 18 letter to Caltrans from the Advisory Council on Historic 

Preservation, an independent federal agency characterizes this destruction 

as a “major breach of the protection of a historic property that Caltrans 

committed to protect .”

The 700 members of SEIU 1021 are on a one day strike against Mendocino 

county that began at 6am this morning with picketing at the county building in Willits on Lenore and E. Valley Sts. Later they will be at the county 

administrative building  followed by a large rally at the courthouse at 3:00pm.
