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!

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced that the annual quarantine on mussels gathered by sport harvesters from coastal waters is over as of last Friday. 


HOWEVER, The quarantine will remain in effect 

from the north jetty of the Humboldt Bay entrance to the Humboldt-Del Norte County line. 


Sampling has confirmed that paralytic shellfish 

toxins remain at dangerous levels for this area, but are at safe or undetectable levels along all other 

portions of the California coast. 


Humboldt Bay is not included in the quarantine extension.

 

The annual mussel quarantine, typically issued for 

the entire California coastline from May 1 through 

October 31, is intended to protect the public from 

PSP and amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP). 


The quarantine applies only to sport-harvested mussels. Commercially harvested 

shellfish are not included in the quarantine as other steps are taken to ensure shellfish entering the 

marketplace are free of toxins.


 

 

 

 


An initiative to institute rent control in senior mobile home parks in the unincorporated areas of Lake County has moved closer to getting onto the June 

2014 ballot while a similar initiative appeared on 

 Lakeport's ballot today.

The group “Save Our Seniors” collected 3,636 signatures , with 2,523 found to be valid more than the 2,115 signatures needed, enough to qualify it to be placed before the voters next summer.

The county initiative defines a senior mobile home park as one where 80 percent of the homes have at least one person over age 55.

It also would roll back rents to Jan. 1, 2012; and 

require that rent hikes be based on the percent of 

Social Security benefit increases.

The Lake Board of Supervisors has three options – accepting the initiative, without changes, as an 

ordinance; order it be placed on the June 3, 2014, ballot; or order a report from county departments on the potential impacts of the initiative.

Park owners have warned that they are preparing 

to take legal action against the initiatives, which they say are unconstitutional.



While State law requires courts to tell the Dept of Justice when it makes certain mental health eterminations in order to take guns away from potentially dangerous owners, many, if not most 

court fail to pass that information on. Auditors 

surveyed 34 of California's 58 superior courts and

 found that only five knew of the law. The 34 courts collectively failed to report at least 2,300 mental 

health determinations over a three-year period ending in 2012.

Other courts only reported some of the information

 required by law.

Courts are required to report the information

 immediately, but auditors found some took up to 

seven days. They recommended that state law be 

changed to require reporting within 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Justice Department officials failed to 

remind courts of their responsibility, even when 

they knew reports were missing.

The department also failed to keep proper track of mental health facilities that also are required to 

report problems, and employees' judgments on who should be prohibited from owning firearms were 

sometimes flawed. Of eight decisions reviewed by auditors, three were incorrect.



 

The Bay Area Suicide and Crisis Intervention Alliance (BASCIA) will host a day-long set of suicide prevention trainings on 

Wednesday, Nov. 6, in Ukiah. There will be training for educators, clergy,  and LGBT counselors, law 

enforcement and other first responders to learn

 practical tools to use when working with individuals who are suicidal.


• Workshops for educators, survivor families, the 

Native American community and a discussion 

group focused on self-harm, wellness and recovery.


The meeting will convene at the Ukiah Valley Conference Center, 200 S. School St., from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Registration is online at 

www.bascia.org .
