Terrance D. BrownAccused Nashville murderer Terrance D. Brown is now in custody in Eureka (Humboldt County), California.

          Brown, 25, was arrested Monday night at a casino hotel after security there found a substance thought to be meth in bedding that had come from his room and notified the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.  Brown claimed to be someone else; however, a fingerprint check revealed his true identity and that he is a fugitive from Nashville.

          Brown is under indictment for the September 8, 2012 shooting death of Dennis Prutianov on Moss Road in South Nashville.  Prutianov, 26, was fatally wounded when shots were fired into his house.  A second suspect, Terrence Clark, 24, was arrested in July of last year on a murder indictment and remains in the Metro Jail awaiting trial.

          The murder case is not Brown’s only issue.  He is also named in arrest warrants issued in October 2012 charging two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated assault.  In that matter, he is accused of entering a residence in the 2500 block of Elm Hill Pike, robbing the two persons inside at gunpoint, and firing a shot at one of the victims as he fled.

          Brown’s return to Nashville is pending.

Board of Directors - Redwood Community Radio
Tues., 17 Dec., 2013 – 5 pm
Music Library (Station) - Redway, CA
I.Roll Call: Vice President Noel Soucy (Programmers’ Rep.); Treasurer Julia Minton (Members’ Rep.); Secretary Jack Frybulous (Programmers’ Rep.); Nella White, (Members’ Rep.); Marcy Stein (Programmers’ Rep.); Mark Marchese (Board-appointed); Kim Peterson (Board-appointed); Christine Doyka (Board-appointed); Station Manager Jeanette Todd (ex-officio) Absent: President Siena Klein (Members’ Rep.)
 
Note: This meeting completed the agenda of the November 26 board meeting. Added to tonight’s agenda was New Business item: Budget for Free Speech Radio News.
II.Unfinished business
B.Appointments to Management Evaluation Com. – Julia moved that Angela Zane, Julia Minton, Christine Doyka, Siena Klein and Cher Oakes be appointed. Mark seconded; approved unanimously. Julia will inform Angela and Kim will inform Cher.
C.Compliance calendar revisions – Insurance renewal deadlines are still unclear. Jeanette asked Board to approve this draft; Marcy moved to accept as is; Christine seconded. Passed unanimously.
D.Disciplinary policy – Noel moved to approve the policy as worded, and moved to next month’s Consent Calendar; seconded and unanimously approved. (The approved draft is dated 10/16/13.)
E.Fair Access to Airwaves policy – Kim moved (with a friendly amendment from Jama) that we revise the third paragraph of this policy: that there will be a response to program proposals “in a timely manner, from the PSRC.” Noel seconded; unanimously approved. Julia will communicate this change with chair of the PSRC (Margaret) [ACTION].
F.Tech proposal – Julia moves to table, seconded; unanimously approved.
G.Unassigned Board duties – The Board did not assign the tasks of creating or editing the documents it makes changes to; persons will be assigned at the time such work is generated. Jama volunteered to finalize the Compliance Calendar approved today, and will ask Siena if she’s willing to update the Grievance Panelists’ contact list [ACTIONS].
 
Secretarial duties – ExCom creates a draft agenda for the next Board meeting, but receives input from other ExCom members after the meeting before it is turned into the “final” Agenda (now done by Siena to lighten the Secretary’s load) and sent to the Board and staff. What we are trying to decide with the Minutes is: who takes it after the Board approves them? Who takes that draft and makes it a final doc and sends it on its way? Kim offered to try to learn the skill of “finalizing minutes” in a meeting with Noel and Jack, which Jack will organize.
G1. Revision of Approved Minutes for September 2013. Marcy recommended a revision, so Noel proposed that this be added to the agenda as item G.1. Noel moved that Sept. Minutes be revised: Delete 4th sentence from Unfinished business, item A: Appt to CAB. The Board approved this motion.
H.Fall pledge drive contingency plan – Jeanette reminded us that we are $22K short of our total 2013 Pledge drive goals. Custom-messaging brochure in the mail, and car-donation info sent out to another 3200 people. Kim and Julia made a commitment to approach friends for donations. Marcy, Jack and Kim offer to record a promo, reminding that KMUD could sure use end-of-the-year (tax-deductible) donations. 
I.Programmers’ agreement revisions – Marcy moved to approve revisions, with friendly amendment to include the check-box offering membership to Programmers; Julia moved that we table this; seconded. Marcy removed her motion. Unanimously approved.
III.New business
A.Consider auditor appointment, contract revisions – Tabled.
B.Consider new meeting date – The Board has changed its monthly meeting date to first Tuesdays at 5; next meeting Feb. 4.
C.Budget for Free Speech Radio News – FSRN now costs $7K/yr. Starting a Kickstarter campaign would allow our listeners to decide whether they want it. However, doing that – either for FSRN or for any or all of our syndicated programs – may effect pledge drive activity in unexpected ways. Jack made a motion to ask the Development Com. to start a Kickstarter campaign to fund FSRN [ACTION]; unanimously approved.
D.Board talk show: Noel will start an email thread asking people what topics should be covered.
IV.Scheduling - monthly meeting times 
Unless otherwise noted, all meetings take place at KMUD, 1144 Redway Dr., Redway, CA.

Board of Directors - Redwood Community Radio
Tues., 26 Nov., 2013 – 5 pm
Healy Senior Center - Redway, CA
I.Call to Order: Opening comments from the President. 
II.Roll Call: President Siena Klein (Members’ Rep.); Treasurer Julia Minton (Members’ Rep.); Secretary Jack Frybulous (Programmers’ Rep.); Nella White, (Members’ Rep.); Mark Marchese (Board-appointed); Kim Peterson (Board-appointed); Station Manager Jeanette Todd (ex-officio); Vice President Noel Soucy (Programmers’ Rep.) Absent: Marcy Stein (Programmers’ Rep.); Christine Doyka (Board-appointed).
III.Approval of Minutes – Jack moved to approve Sept. Minutes draft in Board packet; Kim seconded. 4 in favor; Julia abstained.
IV.Approval of Agenda – Jack moved to approve Agenda, Kim seconded. Approved unanimously.
V.Open time – Bettye Etter asked if a hard-copy of the Membership list had been produced, and if she were being considered for Management Evaluation Com. She also proposed formation of a “Citizens’ Advisory Board West” (i.e., Shelter Cove, Whale Gulch, Ettersburg, etc.) and volunteered to chair a CAB West. Disposition: Siena thanked Bettye, said we would be in touch to form CAB West. MEC appointments are on tonight’s agenda; one of the five members will represent Programmers and Volunteers. Since database under repair, suggest postpone printing out membership list.
 
VI.Manager’s Report – Non-federal financial support (or NFFS, which includes donations, underwriting, and underwriting trade) partially determines the size of our CPB grants. KMUD did ~ $110K in underwriting (so far this year), and about $13K in trade, which enhances the funds we receive from CPB (but which negatively affects the underwriter Rep’s commission). To compare: KZYX (in their 2014 budget) plans for $40K underwriting and an equal amount in trade.
 
New qualifications in 2014 for CPB eligibility. KMUD’s grant funding has changed drastically over past 5 years. (See packet, p. 55.) Our disbursement will drop from $135K in 2013 to $87K in 2014, another reason it’s very important for KMUD to increase NFFS.
 
Free Speech Radio News has been temp. replaced by Feature Story News, eliciting a lot of negative feedback. FSRN now asking $7K/yr, up from $4.5K. The Program Selection and Review Com. is looking for an FSN replacement till February.
 
Development Com. has proposed a 2014 calendar of events, biggest change: Block Party might be canceled for this year. Permits to close roads cost money, not to mention a lot of other work: on-site crews for raising tents; meeting a 6 a.m. deadline for mounting traffic signs; letter-writing to various community entities, live broadcast [and toting hay-bales, kitchen set-up, etc.]. Jeanette feels we should keep the Block Party, but not close the roads for it. Board members’ views about the event touched on 1) its tradition, and 2) its capacity for outreach [if not also being profitable]. Bettye reminded people that the Block Party used to be KMUD’s birthday party (around Memorial Day). She said it got moved a few years ago because of the Grass-Roots Radio Conference, and suggested that the 2014 KMUD Block Party be returned to Memorial Day weekend.
 
Fall Pledge Drive brought in $91.1K (in 12 days, a first), bringing the 2013 pledge drive total to $228K; these last two drives have been “home-runs,” really great! Dec. 14-15 live broadcast on HD-2 (from Emerald Cup in Santa Rosa). Appreciation Party Jan. 17 Garberville Vets’ Hall; last year’s budget of $1500 was exceeded with the expense of the Beginnings venue, and this year more awards are planned: $2000 requested for food, fun and awards. Jack moved we approve this amount; Kim seconded. Approved unanimously.
 
Events Income (all amounts approximate): Walshy Fire $5K; Battle of the Rock Bands $1K; Hiphop Circus $2K; and Halloween Boogie $7K, which is “a testament to what we can do when we work with other non-profits.” Trainings and volunteer orientations are planned for the fall and winter. Quarterly programmer meetings have been requested, which Programmer Reps are asked to facilitate [ACTION: MARCY, NOEL, JACK]. Nella has agreed to take on the pivotal project of database improvement (Donor Snap). Closing the office one day a week more complicated than originally thought. Heating and cooling people have not yet supplied a quote. Green Wired has been asked to install a new solar bank, and may come in next week. ADA (Americans with Disability Act) building permit expires Feb. 15, and work on KMUD’s doors is needed. Employee self-evaluations are ongoing.
 
Extended discussion of fund-raising vs. outreach. Siena mentioned a business KMUD might run (coffee?) to make money. Jack reminded people we should reach out more to the under-40 crowd, and of the station’s back-yard as a great place for a party; it’s full of fruit-trees which could be harvested for profit [ACTION].
 
Events calendar 2014: Wine event up north last spring was a lot of work reaching out to business owners, getting food, thank-you’s afterward, etc. May not be a sustainable model. No dates are final. Other events can be added to the schedule if the liability can be covered by third parties.
 
VII.Consent calendar – Mark moved to approve; Kim seconded. 4 yes, Julia no, Nella abstained. [The policy change in item A therefore received the required 2/3 vote for final passage.]
A.Changes to Grievance policy, section 2.4.5.3 - “The panel is to be composed of 3 or more members …” and policy 5.1.4, Step 7:  “The Board will either accept the recommendations of the Grievance Panel hearing Panelists or the Board may, by unanimous vote of the Board, overturn that decision and make a different ruling to resolve the issue.”
B.The Board will consider creation of a Networking Committee at a future meeting.
VIII.Finance Report
Julia highlighted the pending $50K drop in CPB funding. $205K subscription revenue budgeted, based on $250K in total pledge drive goals. Bottom-line: the fat has already been trimmed from the budget. Hard decisions – to increase revenue or further decrease expenses –  are now called for. Jeanette pointed out that we have received $228K in pledge drive money this year (the previous record was $199K) and drew the Board’s attention to a line in the budget in which each Board member would be expected to contribute [or otherwise bring in] $1000 for KMUD in 2014, for example through tabling, initiating capital campaigns, asking friends for donations, etc.
 
Dian Griffith arrived and, with Julia, walked the Board through various items in the budget. Bequests have benefitted KMUD past couple of years. Cash-crunches are more likely and/or most severe in late summer (partially due to no CPB $). The August pledge drive saved our butts, and a third pledge drive is definitely needed. Subscription revenue line = pledges and silent drive money received. The car-donation program, donation jars [e.g., in stores and supermarkets; ACTION], merchandise sales, and underwriting ($130K for 2014) are examples of other kinds of revenue. Website ads are being planned. Another program guide (following the one put out in 2012) would be good for ad revenue. Programmers should process through the office event-tickets they may give away [ACTION], since their value must be reported. Budgeting for news-stringers has increased significantly, due to our not now having a second staff news anchor-person.
 
IX.Other actions
A.Julia moved we table Unfinished business items B through I ; Noel seconded. 6 in favor, one abstention.
B.Consider David Ordoñez for Grievance Panel. Noel moved we appoint David Ordoñez to Grievance Panel; Kim seconded. Approved unanimously.
C.Julia moved we table New Business items C and D ; Jack seconded. Approved unanimously.
