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 new storm will bring even more rain to the North Coast today and Wednesday. The weather should clear toward the end of the week and then it will be sunny for most of next week, with daytime temperatures in the 60s and partly cloudy nights with lows in the 40s .


Lake County has the dubious distinction of having received the brunt of the rainfall in the past storm series.

According to the National Weather Service, Cobb Mt received 18.34 inches of rain since Wednesday, the most of any reported weather station in the state .

Other areas of Lake County received much less. Middletown received 9.34 inches; Upper Lake, 5.66 inches; Scotts Valley, 5.65 inches; and Kelseyville, 4.81 inches.

Local creeks and streams went from summer-dry to near flood-stage during this storm series. Clear Lake itself went from 1.66 feet Rumsey on Friday to 2.74 feet Rumsey early Monday morning.

Ukiah rain watchers reported 3.25 and 4.11 inches to the National Weather Service.

In Laytonville, one resident reported 5.5 inches and two Redwood Valley residents reported 4.10 inches and 3.21 inches.

By mid-day Sunday, power outages in Mendocino, Lake and Humboldt counties totalled 2,300 customers, reported PG&E.


A report out yesterday finds there are more than 850,000 California teens and young adults (ages 16-24) who are neither in school nor working. The Kids Count report released by The Annie E. Casey Foundation and Children Now suggests solutions for helping the nation's so-called "disconnected youth" prepare for the workforce. Comments from Jessican Mindnich (men-NICK), director of research for Children Now.



The Emerald Growers Association, "a medical cannabis trade association," has urged county officials to take action to fight the Federal subpoena at a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors this morning at 9 am.

The county stopped issuing the 9.31 permits and reverted to the 25-plant limit after the U.S. Attorney's Office threatened to file an injunction against the county's medical marijuana ordinance and seek legal action against county officials who supported it.

The EGA statement calls for the Board of Supervisors to "defend these citizens" by directing County Council Tom Parker "to oppose it in court, if necessary."



The HazMobile household hazardous waste site will be open in Ukiah Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accept dangerous chemicals that can’t go in the trash.
