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!

Willits police have helped recover a disoriented elderly man missing from Elk Grove area who was the subject of a statewide emergency Silver Alert notification.

Kenneth Mitchell, 79, was known to suffer from dementia and was thought to be driving a white Lincoln two door sedan en route to either Pittsburg or San Ramon.

Willits police received a call from Terry White an attendant at Flyers Gas Station with concerns about a disoriented elderly driver who seemed to think he was in the Bay Area and was trying to get over the bridge to Berkeley. White noticed when the man left Flyers he kept circling the area.

Willits police had received the silver alert about Mitchell's disappearance moments before and conducted a short search, locating Mitchell at the Safeway gas station.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

Around 20 parents searched the blackberry bushes of Harwood Park in Laytonville Tuesday looking for evidence that Katrina Hamilton had been there. The 5 foot, 3 and a 1/2”, 132 pound, 17 year old had told her family that she was going to the area to do some artwork January 12th . She has not been seen since. 


According to Angela Grimes, her stepmother, the teen has daily medication she should be taking. The teen has been known to disappear for a few days before, but never this long before.


Local residents have posted flyers for Katrina around Laytonville and on the internet. Deputies have continued the investigation, following up on numerous leads and searched several residences without success . 


Anyone with information in regards to the possible whereabouts or disappearance of Katrina are asked to contact the Mendocino Sheriff’s Tip-Line at  (707)234-2100.



 

 

 

 

 

A Ukiah man who was arrested for allegedly having 19 guns and a bomb in his home pleaded not guilty before Judge Richard Henderson to charges that he was armed with a concealed weapon while being under the influence of a controlled substance.


Wesley Shultz, 43 reportedly had a loaded, .45 caliber handgun concealed on his person when he was arrested.In a subsequent search of Shultz's home, officers reportedly found 19 firearms, an improvised explosive device and homemade gun silencers.


Shultz was released on $50,000 bail.



 

 

 

 

A joint Assembly and the state Senate committee will conduct a hearing to determine the extent that California agencies are using off-budget accounts to hold money outside the state system.

The announcement follows a LATimes report that the CalFire hid $3.6 million rather than depositing it in the state’s cash-strapped general fund.

The hearing is expected to be held in two or three weeks.

The state Department of Finance is planning to start an audit into the fund next Monday, said Janet Upton, spokeswoman for Cal Fire.



 


The CHP has a new slogan for the Super Bowl: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.


“Make the responsible decision to designate a driver who can provide a safe ride home, someone who is abstaining from drinking that day,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. 


According to the CHP’s Traffic Records System, alcohol was involved in nearly 25 percent of collisions on Super Bowl Sunday 2010 .  Those 211 alcohol-involved collisions resulted in the death of six 

people and injuries to 124 others throughout California. 



 

 

 

 

The HazMobile hazardous waste collection returns to Fort Bragg on Friday and Saturday, February 1st & 2nd, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

            The HazMobile is free to households but there is a limit of 15 gallons per vehicle per day.
