Himalayan Rug

Tibetan Rug donated by Himalayan Rug Traders, 529 Second Street, Eureka, California, 95501.

The rug depicts a Golden Dragon flying throught the clouds, a protective symbol. It is 3x6 feet in size, 100 knots per inch.
This hand-knotted wool rug was made by a Tibetan weaver in Kathmandu, Nepal. Himalayan sheep wool has a high lanolin content which makes the rug very soft and naturally repels stains. The dyes are color-fast and the rug can be washed with soap and water. These rugs are made to last a lifetime.

Every pledge today will be entered in a raffle for this rug. As soon as $5,000 are reached, the The raffle drawing will be held this afternoon at 5 pm. Donation is welcome but not necessary to be entered in the raffle. Call (707) 923-3911 or (800)568-3723, or pledge online now.

HALLOWEEN2012-400

KMUD and the Mateel Will Host the 2012 Holloween Boogie, Saturday, October 27 at the Mateel Community Center

   On Saturday, October 27th the Mateel Community Center and KMUD Radio will host the 2012 Halloween Boogie at the Mateel in Redway. One of the most rockin’ parties of the year, the Halloween Boogie always attracts a crazy cast of characters in costume and therefore a costume contest is a must! Winners are chosen from several categories among those decked out in their Halloween best. This year’s Boogie, will feature Diego’s Umbrella, Monkey and Candelaria, three very talented favorites of the Mateel’s 2012 Summer Arts & Music Festival.

            There are two kinds of music fans in this world: those who love Diego’s Umbrella and those who soon will. Celebrated as San Francisco's Ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, they effortlessly blend harmonized shredding, marching drums, and gang choruses with an energy, fire and a refinement that reflects their years of experience on the road in the U.S. and Europe. The group's uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as High Sierra and Outside Lands, has earned them a breathless and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe. It’s that connection with other cultures, they say, that continually informs their aesthetic, a mix of klezmer, flamenco and punk rock all blended to pop perfection.

            Monkey, is a 6 piece high-energy organ driven, Ska/Reggae group, whose intense live shows and rock-steady rhythms never fail to get the crowd dancing wherever they go. The group has won several awards, including the prestigious California Music Award. Monkey has toured the U.S., Great Britain, Canada, Mexico and Japan. While constantly recording and touring, performing over 200 shows per year, Monkey has produced 3 full-length albums, and has also been featured on over 25 compilations, video games and film soundtracks, including the new independent horror-comedy Russ Meyer tribute “Pervert the Movie” on Stag Films. They are currently working on their Japanese release, “Monkeyska” (Disc Union Ltd). 

            Candelaria, with their unique blend of dub studio techniques and reggae style bass lines applied to traditional cumbia and other Colombian rhythms, has created dance music with electronic sensibilities and a live feel that keeps the dance floor hot and the party moving. Independent and cutting edge, Candelaria resists the trend of computer driven programmed beats and effects and has actually gone the opposite direction. All of their music, as well as recordings, are performed live and all effects are done in real time. Candelaria is at the forefront of the global cumbia movement with present and past members from Colombia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, El Salvador, Canada, Malaysia, and Peru, Candelaria reflects many cultures and the diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area.

            Start planning your costume now! But with or without a costume, don’t miss this year’s Halloween Boogie at the Mateel Community Center with three of the hottest dance bands around, Diego’s Umbrella, Monkey and Candelaria! Doors open at 7pm. Beer, wine and snacks will be available. Tickets will be available in advance at the usual outlets_$23 in advance, and $25 at the door and online at Mateel.org. For more information call KMUD at 923-2513 or Mateel at 923-3368 or visit websites at KMUD.org or Mateel.org

Promotions
[New language is underlined.]

5.4.2 Hiring
01/08/94, 03/10/16
The station shall advertise all paid staff openings, full- or part-time, as far and wide as the RCR broadcast area. This stricture does not apply when a promotion is made to fill a vacant position.
The Station Manager is responsible for all hires. (See Section 2.4.8, “Hiring Committee for Station Manager”.)
Job applications shall be kept on file for one year in case of immediate job openings.

Attachment II
Policy Committee memo on PSRC

August 29,2019

TO: RCR Board of Directors
FROM: Rob Bier, Chair, Policy Committee
RE: PSRC policy changes

You asked me to check with Nate Horning about the proposed changes to PSRC policy. He, in turn, consulted his predecessor, Cynthia Click.

Nate replied, in part, as follows:
“I only have one issue with the 5.3 policy concerning the PSRC. I would appreciate it if the sentence on term limits were to be removed for now. Yes, this is a good suggestion and something to consider, the positives and negatives. With all due respect, I would like to remind the Board that the PSRC is strictly an advisory council to assist the Program Director(s). The KMUD BOD does not need to trouble themselves with the formation and work of the PSRC. However, I always welcome input and suggestions!”

Cynthia gave Nate some helpful history of the PSRC, ending, in part, with:
“The PSRC is NOT A BOARD COMMITTEE. The PSRC is the Program Director’s advisory committee. It does not fall under the BOD members’ purview. They can change this, but as it stands, they cannot make these decisions. If you (i.e., Nate) are interested in term limits, you can impose them.”

In conclusion, I want to add that I agree with both Nate and Cynthia. We do not need to require term limits for PSRC members. It is purely advisory; its activities affect no one, except perhaps the Program Director(s). As you know, I am opposed to Board incursions into station management without a strong justification. I see no such justification here.

Attachment III
Program Selection and Review Council

[Language to be eliminated is struck through. New language is underlined.]

2.4.1 Standing Committees
12/16/97; 08/24/04; 06/27/06; 02/12/18
The Board presently has five standing committees: Development, Finance, Policy, Mediation and Membership Drive. Standing committees include at least one Board member who is the Board-appointed chair. The chairperson of each committee will submit a list of committee members to the Board for approval. Members may be added as recommended by the committee chairperson and are subject to Board approval. Membership of the Board committees will be reviewed annually in the month following the seating of new Board members.
Committees draw up their own goals, rules, and definitions to implement the Board's broad plan. Committees report to the Board, which accepts, rejects or modifies their recommendations. Standing committees can have subcommittees at their discretion. Special committees have a limited project or timeframe. Committee expenditures shall be budgeted and approved ahead of time by the Board. Management's committees, such as the Program Selection and Review Council, are advisory to and defined by management.

5.3 PROGRAM REVIEW AND SELECTION COUNCIL
08/09/16
To ensure adequate community representation in the selection of programming on RCR, a Program Selection and Review Council (PSRC) will consist of RCR Program Director(s), Program Assistant(s) and a minimum of five active programmers or listeners. The PSRC is advisory to the Program Director(s) and Station Manager. Programmer Representatives on the Board of Directors, other staff or volunteers may be solicited to help recruit new members to the PSRC. Applicants for membership on the PSRC should apply to the Program Director(s) for review. All applications will be reviewed and put to a vote by the council. Non-management members serve two-year, staggered terms, which may be renewed by vote of the entire PSRC. Members can be removed from the PSRC by a vote of the members. The Station Manager shall oversee the ongoing participation of the PSRC in programming decisions. Input, such as comments or complaints regarding programming will be forwarded to the PSRC for review. Input shall be documented in programmer files by the Program Director(s).

Frequently Asked Questions about the Vehicle Donation Program

Does my car have to be running?
Not always. It does have to have an engine and be towable. It varies from state to state and depends upon the year, make, and model of the vehicle. Sometimes if the cost to transport a vehicle will cost more than what it will bring at auction, it may be declined. Call our toll free line to find out if your vehicle qualifies.

Does my car have to be registered?
No, but you must be the legal titleholder.

What if I lost the title?
You must obtain the title prior to donating it. Contact your local DMV to obtain a duplicate title.

Where do I sign my title?
Our driver will instruct you of the proper place to sign your title. You may have to sign a power of attorney authorizing us to transfer it. Our driver will let you know what is required or call our toll free number, 877-411-DONATE (3662)  to speak our representative.

What kind of paperwork will I receive?
You will receive a tow receipt when the vehicle is picked up. Thirty days after the vehicle is sold, you will receive an acknowledgement. If your vehicle sells for OVER $500 you will receive IRS Form 1098 B & C.

How much can I take for my donation?
Effective 2005, if the value of the vehicle is over $500, the taxpayer is limited to deduct the amount for which the vehicle sold. In such a case you will receive a Form 1098 B & C within 30 days of sale. If the vehicle sells for under $500 you will not receive IRS forms as you are not required to file them for vehicle donations up to $500. Please consult your tax advisor to determine your benefit or for additional information, visit the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-drop/n-05-44.pdf .

What will happen to my vehicle?
Your vehicle will be picked up by one of our courteous drivers and sold at auction.  Cars are usually sold within 30 days of pick up. Some vehicles may take longer.

Is there a tow fee?
No. If you are out of our towing range, we can offer you the option to drop the vehicle off at our auction house at your convenience.

Are all cars sold at auction?
No. Occasionally, cars that are donated do not sell at auction. In those cases, the vehicles are sold for scrap metal.

Will I be notified when it sells?
Yes.  If the vehicle sells for over $500 you will receive IRS Form 1098 B & C. If not, you will simply receive an acknowledgement as required by the IRS.

How soon can my vehicle be picked up?
Vehicles are picked up at a time that is convenient for you.  Our representative will take all pertinent information regarding your donation, and forward it to our tow company. They will call you within 24 hours to set up an appointment.  If you have not been called within 24 hours, please call 877-411-3662.

What vehicles do you accept?
We take cars, boats (if they are on a trailer), motor homes, trucks, motorcycles (if they are operational), farm equipment, and recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles, jet ski, etc.) Call our representative to find out if your vehicle qualifies.

Why Donate?
There are several great reasons, like:
1. You don't want to worry about selling your vehicle.
2. It is too expensive to repair your vehicle.
3. You don't trust your car to be safe on the road.
4. You need a tax write-off.

But the most important reason is that your donation will help us continue to bring you the radio programs you love and depend on!
