Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

Police are continuing to look for the suspect in the Sunday morning armed robbery of Ray’s Food Place in Clearlake.

When officers arrived they learned that the suspect – believed to be a white adult male wearing camouflage clothes, a ball cap and a black face mask – walked into the grocery store carrying a rifle.

The suspect ordered an employee to hand over money and then fired a single shot into the store’s ceiling. As the suspect was leaving the store, a second employee confronted the suspect and attempted unsuccessfully, to wrestle the rifle from him.

The suspect continued outside and then fired two more rounds at store windows,shattering them. Officers used two police dogs to track the suspect’s trail to a turnout area where it is believed he got into a vehicle and fled.

The suspect is believed to be a white male, approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.

The amount of money stolen is being withheld.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Clearlake Police at 707-994-8251. Callers may remain anonymous.



Connecting small farmers with their local kids to provide healthy foods for low-income kids is an idea who time has come, the California News service reports.





The Sonoma Board of Supervisors this week could drastically cut the amount of medical marijuana allowed for patients outside city limits.

Tuesday , the board on will consider a proposal to get rid of the guidelines approved six years ago allowing patients to have 30 plants and three pounds of dried pot per year.

Instead, the state limit of six mature plants or 12 immature plants and eight ounces of dried pot per patient is plenty, according to a proposal by Supervisors Shirlee Zane and Valerie Brown.

Zane said they must change to stem a perception that the North Coast is a safe place to illegally cultivate marijuana.

The move has enraged some medical cannabis advocates who said the supervisors requested input from law enforcement but left patients out of the process, giving them less than a week's notice before the vote.

"It's outrageous," said Kumari Sivadas of Sonoma Alliance for Medical Marijuana. "If the ordinance is repealed, it would result in a huge waste of resources. The courts are already packed with marijuana prosecutions."

Advocates and patients said they will pack the supervisor chambers for Tuesday's meeting to argue against the new proposal.






Mind, Body Health; Tuesday @ 9:00 AM
Join Marvin Trotter with Lily Caravello and  Megan Van Sant to talk about Children's Services in the county and the Affordable Care Act.
