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!

A change in the weather aided firefighters in their efforts of containment on the half dozen wildfires across California. Cooler temperatures, higher humidity and diminished winds have all provided more favorable weather conditions for firefighters. As the winds have died down, the Red Flag Warnings for high fire danger have expired. Over 4,000 firefighters remain on the frontlines of the major wildfires burning in California. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the Mendocino Board of Supervisors' Tuesday meeting agenda includes a proposal to dedicate a psychiatric emergency room to the late Dr. Doug Rosoff and an agreement regarding the impact of a casino proposed by the Pinoleville Pomo Nation. The board's meeting begins at 9 a.m., Tuesday at 501 Low Gap Road.

The board will consider setting up an optional payroll deduction to give county employees a way to raise $7,000 toward the $25,000 needed to rename a psychiatric emergency room "in remembrance of Rosoff, the county's late chief psychiatrist " 

 

 the board will also consider an agreement with the Ukiah Valley Fire District and the Pinoleville Pomo Nation on mitigation for "off-reservation impacts resulting from the tribe's casino and hotel project," to be constructed at 2150 N. State St. in Ukiah.

the casino and hotel would be built in two phases on 8.8 acres of reservation land. Phase One would include 26,000 square feet of construction with 12,000 of it dedicated to gaming and the remaining 14,000 feet would house a restaurant, a bar and lounge, a full-service deli, a retail shop and guest services.

The MOU includes a provision that the tribe would pay the county $150,000 annually for law enforcement services, with an acknowledgement that the Sheriff's Office has jurisdiction. The tribe would also pay the Sheriff's Office $30,000 every three yearsthe  Fire District $200,000 annually for staffing, and a one-time sum of $50,000 for emergency response equipment .

As payment in lieu of taxes, the county would also receive $1.5 Million over years 1 thru seven and  $400,000 annually starting in the eighth year with annual Consumer Price Index increases.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHERWOOD VALLEY RANCHERIA announced temporary agreement with Caltrans to stop bypass excavations north of East Hill Road according to The new Willits Weekly. The tribe had been prepared to file for an injunction against Caltrans in Superior Court for failure to adequately consult with the tribe about protection of Native American cultural and archeological resources..Michael Fitzgerral, tribal chairman, said representatives had walked the bypass route north of East Hill Road and questioned one of the Caltrans engineers about what plans were in effect for protecting archeological and cultural resources, but the engineer “couldn’t answer a lot of questions.”

The tribe is trying to “set up a meeting with full counsel and Caltrans to  to see if Caltrans is in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act and also to set up “a good memorandum of understanding” regarding treatment of cultural resources but, Fitzgerral said: “We’re waiting for the Caltrans lawyers to call back.” Courtesy Jennifer Poole



 

 

A new tree sit, visible to motorists on Highway 101, appeared flying a banner saying "Governor Brown-- Do the Right Thing, Please. No Bypass” as a delegation of local citizens traveled to the Governor’s office in Sacramento.

Community members insist that Caltrans routinely minimizes what is in fact a systemic pattern of violations, blaming contractors for their own malfeasance. 



 

This week Fish & Wildlife wardens local as well as from out of the area worked the Mendocino Coast and issued over 200 citations abalone and other violations.
