An EXTRA Talk of Alaska this week
It's getting closer and closer and schedules are getting tighter and tighter so this week the folks at APRN are adding an additional episode of Talk of Alaska so we can all be a little bit more knowledgeable when it's time to fill in the dots. The Governor makes his appearance Tuesday morning and the challenger, Bill Walker, makes his appearance Wednesday morning. Both live at 10am Tuesday and Wednesday this week (and both being repeated the same evening at 9pm on HD3)
 
Early Pledge Drive

tbt_banner.jpg

It's that time of year when we ask for your support to help us continue to bring you the bits of radio that help you stay an informed citizen (like the debates and election updates), an entertained listener (did you hear This American Life's new spinoff, called Serial?), and apprised of community events (the community calendar is always full this time of year).

 

Not only will you be supporting all of that goodness, but you'll also be entered into a drawing for a set of cross country skis OR a snowboard from Orion's Mountain Sports if you pledge by midnight on October 29! If you're a new member, you'll be entered into a special drawing for a photography package from Simply Lovette Photograpy -- just in time for the holidays.

 

Lots of great stuff this Fall for our pledge drive, including an entire day of retro radio on October 30 (and great food). Stop by, tune in, and pledge right here via the Donate Now button or by calling 486-3181. Thanks!

          One local reality television star is set to make her second appearance on the big screen. Tina Kilborn made her television debut when she was cast as one of the six love-struck women on TLC’s 2013 reality TV series, Alaskan Women Looking for Love. But next week, Kilborn will make a second appearance on television, this time in the premiere episode of My Crazy Love, a new reality series from Oxygen.
           “It’s just a show with several different comedians and actors and people telling crazy stories – things that they did to find love.”   
            Basically, the show highlights the craziest things people have done to get a guy or girl to like them, and reenacts the scenarios with actors. Kilborn’s story is previewed in a new teaser for the show, and will be featured in the premiere episode.

           The Ebola virus has been making headlines worldwide, and recently state officials have joined the discussion to make sure Alaskans know what measures are being done to prevent a spread of deadly virus in the last frontier. The discussion turned local during the Borough Assembly’s regular meeting Thursday night when Assemblywoman Carol Austerman read a statement from Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center regarding Ebola. Austerman serves on Providence’s community advisory board.
            In the statement, Providence said it’s unlikely there will be an Ebola epidemic here in the United States, but it is still taking the matter very seriously and making the safety of patients and caregivers its first priority.
           “With the heightened need for screening for the Ebola virus and other seasonal infections diseases, PKIMC has launched an immediate response that ensures we are vigilant in our identification of patients at risk, ready to serve those who need our care, and support our caregivers ability to provide care safely and with confidence.”   
           Austerman went on to read that PKIMC is more concerned about other health risks Alaskans face annually.
           “We would also like to remind the community that although Ebola may threaten the lives of the people of Kodiak, influenza DOES threaten the lives of the people of Kodiak every year, so please make sure you and your families receive your flue shots.”
            She added that one of the discussion points during the advisory board’s meeting last week was the fact that the number of people who die from the flu each year is much higher than how many have died so far from Ebola. Austerman said it was something to think about as media coverage on the outbreak continues.

          On Thursday, three new faces joined the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. One of them, Rebecca Skinner, was out of town following the election, but KMXT was able to catch up with her before taking her oath of office and get her thoughts on joining the governing body.
           “I am happy and excited. I think that it’s going to be a tremendous learning experience for me. But then I also think that I have a lot to bring to the table. So I think it will hopefully be a good process for everyone.”   
            Skinner said one of the main things she’d like to focus on as an assembly member is a better coordinated capital planning process for the Kodiak region.

          This weekend marks the 25th annual Coast Guard Appreciation dinner, hosted by the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. On Saturday, folks will fill the Harbor Convention Center to honor and show their appreciation for the men and women who serve the community through the U.S. Coast Guard.
           Summer Wood is the community relations director for the Chamber and said the event typically brings in a good crowd and local chefs provide food for attendees.
          “During the dinner we will hear from Senator Gary Stevens, Mayor Pat Branson, Mayor Jerrol Friend. We’ll also be hearing from John Whiddon – he’s also going to be speaking about the Coast Guard Foundation and what the Coast Guard Foundation does for the Coast Guard. And we’ll also be hearing a testimony from someone who was medevac’d here in September, she wants to show her appreciation for the Coast Guard.”   
            Wood said various captains and commanders from the Coast Guard will also speak throughout the evening.
             Tickets are still on sale for $50, which covers the cost of one civilian and one enlisted member. Wood said the goal is that no one from the Coast Guard will have to pay for their dinner that evening. Likewise, raffle tickets will be given to enlisted members for door prizes, which have donated by local businesses and organizations.
