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!

ThLake Co Board of Supervisors will consider giving approval to a lease agreement with Marymount College for the Lucerne Hotel.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. Today on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St., Lakeport. The meeting will be broadcast live on TV8.

The Southern California-based Marymount College – a Catholic, four-year liberal arts college – proposes to use the Lucerne Hotel for its third campus.

Marymount’s board of trustees approved the lease, which has been in the works since earlier this year.

The lease is to be for 15 years, with the rate at $1 a year for the first five years. 



The insanity phase of Billy Norbury's trial for the first-degree murder of Jamal Andrews yesterday begins this morning at 9:30 am. Norbury declared guilty yesterday.

The jury returned a verdict of guilty on both counts: murder in the first-degree and the special allegation that Norbury, 34, used a gun to kill his neighbor Andrews, 30, on Jan. 24.

"There's no clear motive at this time," said Sheriff Sgt. Greg Van Patten . "There was marijuana growing at the residence, but we can't definitively say that was the motive."

When deputies responded to the 9-1-1 call from the boy's father, they found Celso Madueno dead.  His brother, Abel, was also found with multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to an out-of-county hospital where he is reportedly recovering.

Police are seeking at least two, and possibly three suspects. One of the suspects who entered the home wore a red hoodie sweatshirt and black bandana covering part of his face. Thewere last seen headed north on East Road in a black Cadillac Escalade SUV.  Anyone with information is urged to call the MCSO tip line at 234-2100.
