“I absolutely plan on sticking with this and getting involved with the local radio station wherever I go to college or start my career,” said 14-year-old Chase Reilley, sitting back from the microphone during a set-break of his “An Alternative Universe” music show broadcast on KFUG Community Radio in Crescent City.

Going by the DJ name Rockin’ Reilley, he and his friend Taylor “T-Smash” Patch, also 14, have been co-hosting the 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday show since June, and the radio duo, who both get school credit for producing the show, couldn’t be more excited about KFUG’s upgrade last weekend to a 100-watt FM receiver. Leaving their AM signal in the dust, KFUG is now broadcast at 101.1 FM throughout Del Norte County from Klamath to Smith River.

Some 435 coats and jackets were distributed to needy families and individuals Saturday, and with hundreds of coats left over, organizers are considering holding another distribution.
