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!

After receiving $31 million from Calif CTC for mitigation projects on the Willits Bypass, CalTrans, in a press release,announced that it will direct $26 million in funding to make environmental improvements on more than 2,000 acres of lands it purchased for the Willits Bypass Project. All of these projects had been announced before in CalTrans hearings on the project.


 

To offset the project’s impacts to 80 acres of wetlands, Caltrans will provide compensatory wetlands mitigation in the Little Lake Valley at a 15:1 ratio. In addition to the more than 1,200 acres of wetland compensation, over 140 acres of riparian habitat will be established and rehabilitated, totaling over 10 miles of improved streamside habitat for salmon and steelhead. 


The mitigation wetlands will be planted with more than 800,000 plantings of local native wetland grasses, shrubs and trees to enhance the vegetative complexity of the mitigation sites. Culverts will be improved to open up critical upstream rearing habitat for listed steelhead and Coho salmon on Haehl, Upp, and Ryan Creeks. Conservation Easements will be placed on the lands to ensure they are protected in perpetuity.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office has asked for assistance in locating 14 year old Kirin Aurealas Maciel, missing from Eureka since Saturday.

Her grandmother told police that Kirin has medical issues . 


She left her grandmother's residence in Eureka on foot and was seen walking towards downtown Eureka at about 4:30 p.m. Deputies checked the area for Maciel and did not locate her. 


Maciel is described as a white female, 5 feet, 3, 140 pounds, blue eyes, strawberry-blond hair, wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and pants.


The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information to call 445-7251 or the tip line at 268-2539.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Environmental groups cannot use state law to block the resumption of freight rail service on the North Coast, a Marin County judge  tentatively ruled Tuesday.


Judge Roy O. Chernus said that federal law preempts state law in matters relating to railroads, so environmental groups could not sue the North Coast Railroad Authority over deficiencies in an environmental impact report that it prepared under state law .


NCRA is trying to restore North Coast freight rail service from Napa to Humboldt County. In 2011, it released an environmental impact report on the first phase, from Napa to Willits, a study funded by nearly $3 million from the state.


Two groups, the Friends of the Eel River and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics, sued, arguing that the EIR was insufficient.


The judge, however, agreed with NCRA when it argued that federal law preempts state law.


Chernus was expected to hear arguments from the two groups Wednesday morning in San Rafael before making his ruling final. 




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More moving earth and signs of new cracking pavement at the Lakeside Heights subdivision in north Lakeport are creating new problems for residents and county officials.


Special Districts Administrator Mark Dellinger ttold the board yesterday that new fissures are opening up in previously unaffected parts of the subdivision, with pavement on another of the neighborhood's streets starting to separate.


There also has been new movement noted to the northwest, which has even surprised the geotechnical engineer hired to investigate the ground movement, Dellinger said.


Dellinger said his department is still trying to zero in on the water source that seems to be exacerbating the shifting ground. “The question is, what's the source, what's the cause?”


He said that on Monday, state Sen. Noreen Evans' staff contacted the county to ask for information about the situation.


US Sen. Dianne Feinstein's staff is sending a member to tour the subdivision on Thursday.
