Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

A cold blast hit the North Coast tonight, bringing below-freezing overnight temperatures through the weekend.

The sharp dip is expected to fill homeless shelters and could threaten outdoor plants.

"Overall, this may be some of the coldest weather we've had this winter,"  meteorologist Bob Smerbeck said . "Anyone with susceptible plants better have a game plan beginning Thursday night."

Daytime highs are expected to be in the 40s with cloudy skies and rain possible Saturday night.

The chilly conditions will continue through the beginning of next week.

The CHP warned black ice could form on roads.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A consortium of local organizations will conduct the first comprehensive survey of the homeless in Lake County Friday, Jan. 25.

The goal is to canvass the groups’ entire service territory across Lake County and seek individuals and families who have challenges securing permanent housing.

The survey will give the organizations information they will need to apply for federal grants for such needs as housing vouchers and other services.

The count will include the entire county, not just shelters.

They are seeking more volunteers to help with the count – from going to homeless camps and recycling centers, to working at specific reporting locations which are still being determined.

Potential volunteer contact Christopher Taliaferro at the Employment Development Department, 707-262-3111.

 

 

 


 

GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN SAYS CALIFORNIA’S PRISON STATE OF EMERGENCY IS NOW OVER… AND HE’S FILING LEGAL MOTIONS TO END FEDERAL PRISON OVERSIGHT AND END A COURT-ORDERED CAP ON THE PRISON POPULATION AIMED AT IMPROVING PRISON HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE.

Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $64 million to 43 projects that will reduce traffic congestion and repair highways, local streets, and bridges.   

The allocations include $42 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. The remaining allocations ($22 million) came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars. 


Humboldt County - $20,000 for the construction of sidewalks and bike lanes on School Road between Fisher Road and Salmon Avenue in McKinleyville. 


Lake County - $718,000 for the purchase of five diesel powered transit vehicles. 


 

 

 

 

Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) announced today that he has been appointed to two key committees in the 113th Congress: the House Committee on Natural Resources and the House Budget Committee, whose jurisdictions mirror Huffman’s earlier state Assembly committee assignments.   

Join John Sakowisc's on "All About Money" at 9 am, with the first live interview in Mendocino county with Congressman Jared Huffman.
