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 OLD MASONITE site north of Ukiah is owned by Developers Diversified Realty which is the centerpiece in a DISPUTE between the County and the City of Ukiah over where to place a proposed CostCo outlet. Supervisor 

Pinches would like to see a CostCo on the DDR-Masonite site, which is north of the Ukiah city limits. Ukiah wants CostCo to be placed inside the city limits.

The Board of Supervisors has sent a letter to Costco requesting a meeting 

to discuss putting a store on DDR's land. It's the first item of business on the County Supervisors' Tuesday agenda at 9:10 am

The county's draft letter says. "There are lingering long-term access deficiencies at the city's proposed site. The DDR site is simply more flexible and with the county's unwavering support, development projects can happen quickly"




As a result of Mrs. Samantha Lamberg's appearance on a KXYZ program last Wednesday evening, the case of her missing husband Erik, 51, 

has received its strongest lead since his car was found abandoned on 

Sherwood road 12 miles east of Fort Bragg in early June. Lamberg, 51, has been missing since May 29th.

After her interview on Mendo Matters, a listener, Angela Harvey, reached 

out to Mrs Lamberg on her Facebook page. "Angela’s boyfriend is Michael 

Stephans, a professional owl caller who works at night. On May 31, he was near the Skunk Train, Clair Mill depot, between Burbeck and Crowley. There was a storage shed there which he opened. Inside was a lot of debris. As 

he was leaving, he heard a man screaming as if he was scared out of his 

mind. Michael then quickly left. The location is in reasonable proximity to 

where Erik’s van was found.

Since that lead came in, Stephans also reported that the hut seemed to be 

occupied as late as the beginning of July, with a pine bough bed and a fire 


Lt. Barney (head of S&R) said the next steps would not take place until Wednesday, but he cautions that the hut could also be home to any homeless person, not just Lamberg.

Mrs Lamberg ends her email with "Many thanks to KZYX, the people who called inAngela Harvey, and Michael Stephans and the community of Mendocino County for all their efforts."





The Mendocino School District trustees voted unanimously Thursday , to 

raise the fees 7.1 percent for MCN, effective Sept. 1st . The increase for 

Fusion residential customers will be about $4.46, while Fusion business 

customers will pay $5.18 more per month. Legacy DSL customers will pay 

$2.50 more .

The board also decided to begin the process of applying for a waiver to 

California's sealed bid requirement for the disposal of public property, which is the first step toward the option of selling MCN.







At noon Tues, JULY 30, 2013 to discuss POSSIBLE ACTION 


As of Friday, The contractor has informed the City that they will not use city streets until an agreement is reached.








A petition is being circulated online at the petitions.moveon.org website to save MCTV. "We, the undersigned, petition the Fort Bragg City Council and the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors to continue to support and fund community access television on the Mendocino coast."



Stay tuned for Conversations on Health care; @ 9 am

This week, Mark and Margaret speak with Dr. William Newsome, Stanford University neurobiologist  seeking to map the human brain.
