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 a high speed chase, where the passenger fired a handgun at a Mendocino Sheriff's Deputy's car, police are seeking  Christopher Skaggs,30, from Redwood Valley, and Walter Miller (33-,Ukiah,) as persons of interest in this incident.


The public should consider them to be possibly armed and dangerous.


Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Skaggs and Miller are urged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 463-4086 or the Tip-Line at 234-2100.



 

 

 

 

 



 

About 30 Protesters against the Willits bypass yesterday stopped Caltrans subcontractors from building a fence — and bulldozing a path through the brush — at a site on East Hill Rd north of Warbler's tree sit . 


Protesters discovered several bird nests in the brush Caltrans had already cleared, and sat in the path of the bulldozer.


CHP OFFICERS were told by protesters they wanted to talk to California Fish & Wildlife. 


A biologist from SHN Consulting, which had done a bird survey in January, came to look at the nests, along with an environmental compliance officer from Caltrans. Both handled and moved the two still intact nests, breaking one of them. When Fish & Wildlife Warden Rusty Boccaleoni arrived, he was also told that witnesses had seen birds flying from the tree.

Caltrans’ compliance officer told the game warden that it appeared to be an old nest.


BOCCALEONI eventually told protesters that JoAnn Dunn, a staff environmental scientist for Fish & Wildlifwould be coming to the  site to look things over.


Dunn later told protesters that Fish & Wildlife would be returning to do a more complete survey, which would take a few days. 


Naomi Wagner provides an update for Tuesday when two protesters once again stopped CalTrans construction.


 

The Ukiah Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Wednesday on the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed Costco store at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 300 Seminary Avenue.

According to the staff report, David Babcock and Associates applied  for the construction of a Costco warehouse store and fuel station at the south end of Airport Park Boulevard on 15.33 acres, located between the Ken Fowler Auto Center and the southern end of Airport Park Blvd.

The warehouse store would be a maximum of 148,000 square feet and include a bakery, pharmacy, optical center, food court and tire center. The tire center is 5,692-square-foot, building that includes a tire installation facility.

The EIR identified The Significant and Unavoidable impacts, those which "cannot be eliminated or reduced to a less than significant level," as "air quality, transportation and traffic and global climate change."


 

 

 

 

This Thursday, the Ocean Protection Coalition invites the public to a discussion of the proposed expansion of the Gulf of the Farallones/Cordell Bank Marine Sanctuary, at 7 p.m. February 28 at the Fort Bragg 

Library Community Meeting Room, 499 E. Laurel St.  


We will finalize our letter of recommendation for submission the following day, March 1st.

The Marine Sanctuary expansion offers permanent protection from offshore oil drilling and other polluting activities to just north of Point Arena. For information, contact David Gurney at 961-1339.
