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 Humboldt and Shasta Sheriff’s Office are seeking assistance from the public with the identity of two hikers who were on the beach at the end of Lighthouse Road, Petrolia on Wednesday May 8 during the late evening hours.

MIller's dog GiGi who was missing from the home was given to a woman on the beach by the two hikers who said they found the dog and were not able to locate an owner. 

Names were not exchanged and their identity is not known. It would be greatly beneficial if the location Gigi was originally found was known.

The Humboldt and Shasta County Detectives are asking the persons who located Gigi call the following numbers . Shasta (530-245-6025) or Humboldt  (707-445-7251).

Arrangements are being made for the safe return of Gigi to members of the Miller family. 

The search continues with foot searches in the King Range trails and door to door searches of residences and cabins in the Petrolia, Honeydew and Shelter Cove communities

More than 70 officers from Humboldt and Shasta County sheriff's , local police, the CHP and SWAT teams from Humboldt , Shasta , Mendocino , and Sonoma County and the Department of Corrections; the U.S. Marshals Service as well as others.




A judge ruled Tuesday that Lake county is not responsible for paying for Sheriff Frank Rivero's legal fees related to his lawsuit against the district attorney, which was thrown out last week.

Visiting Judge Richard J. Henderson clarified his original August ruling  that at the time, he intended to provide the sheriff with county-funded legal counsel only related to District Attorney Don Anderson's then-pending "Brady list" determination.

Anderson formally categorized Rivero as a "Brady officer" -- a law enforcement official with a documented history of untruthfulness in official matters and Rivero filed a lawsuit challenging the DA's inquiry and finding.

Henderson's ruling outlined that his original intent was to provide the sheriff with legal counsel "in the consultative discussions then proposed by the District Attorney about whether or not the District Attorney would place (Rivero's) name on the 'Brady list.'"

"The court did not intend to order the Board of Supervisors to provide any conflict representation at any point after the determination was eventually made," Henderson wrote.

The judge also denied the sheriff's request for the county to cover attorney fees through May 7.








The first load of debris was removed from the Palace Hotel last week as the first phase of a cleanup plan was implemented, the building's ownerEladia Laines, told the Ukiah City Council Wednesday.

 two tons of debris were trucked away May 9.


Much of the debris was removed from the area planned for a museum, and Laines said "that space looks enormous now" with much of the piles of plaster and other debris taken out.

"The process of debris removal is monitored closely by (our asbestos) expert and Air Quality, said Laines, adding that "everything is being photographed."

Laines said the material is being sorted and recycled when possible, and samples are being taken from the debris and the air.

Laines said the next load would be trucked next week, and that "escrow's been open with the title company," and she had hired a new consultant to help her with the process.













The Upper Lake Community Food Project will host a food give-away on May 21 at the Odd Fellows Hall on Main Street in downtown Upper Lake.

Interested parties are asked to show up at 4 p.m., sign up and wait for  bags of food plus a meal to go, along with grooming supplies, as long as supplies last.


For more information, call Claudine Pedroncelli at 275-9030.
