Mother-Wise is excited to announce a new weekly radio program on KPFZ 88.1 FM, Lake County Community Radio, called Mom Matters airing weekly on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. The program will focus on issues pertaining to motherhood and babies, and discussion topics will correspond to what we share each week in our local in-person moms’ group. This will give moms who cannot attend the group an extra chance to learn and join the conversation, essentially bringing the moms’ group right into the home. The program will be hosted by the Mother-Wise program director, Jaclyn Ley, and she will occasionally be joined by special guests who offer deeper insight into certain topics. Mom Matters will be a call-in program, facilitating open discussion and community involvement.

You may have noticed that while listening to KPFZ at 88.1 on the FM dial, there are times where the music and talk isn't very clear. Or perhaps you've tuned in at 5 a.m. and found the station is off the air. These are 2 of the symptoms of a serious issue facing KPFZ as we enter our 10th year as a full power station.
The problem is complex - the solution requires a large infusion of funds. The fix is a licensed STL system that needs to be engineered, applied for, and approved through the FCC. Then, the equipment needs to be purchased and installed. Estimated cost is $20,000 for the equipment, license fee, and setup.

The River and Ranch fires have been combined by Cal Fire into a grouping known as the Mendocino Complex. The River Fire, which started near Hopland, and the Ranch Fire, which started near Potter Valley, have now caused evacuations in Lake, Colusa, and Glenn Counties.
