Al Asuncion/KMXT

           Hello, I'm Al Asuncion, an intern here at KMXT are part of the station's summer archiving project. This week, I listened to "My Green Earth” hosted by Stacy Studebaker, also known as Leila Liverwort.
            "Hi there, Nature fans! Welcome to My Green Earth, a weekly radio show about our environment for kids and their parents. I'm your host, Leila Liverwort; and today's creature feature is about a relative of the insect that can be found nearly everywhere from deserts to bathtubs. Instead of having six legs like insects, these creatures have eight legs. You've guessed it! Spiders!"
            This episode titled "Spiders" aired on KMXT in December of 1994. Leila illustrates the body structure of a spider in this show.

    The three Republican candidates for U.S. Senate squared off in a forum produced by Bethel public radio station KYUK Thursday morning. The forum used pre-recorded questions from several other public radio stations around the state, including one sent in by KMXT’s Jay Barrett: Here’s the short segment of the forum devoted to the fisheries question and the candidates’ answers with host Ben Matheson.
    You can hear the entire hour-and-a-half debate between Mead Treadwell, Joe Miller and Dan Sullivan online at KYUK.org.
    The traditional fisheries debate during Kodiak’s ComFish this year was cancelled when not all the Republican senatorial candidates could fit it into their schedule. The new date for the forum is tentatively set October 1st, when there will only be one of them left in the race against incumbent Senator Mark Begich.
    The gubernatorial candidates will face off on fisheries issues in three weeks, and KMXT will also broadcast it live.

           Kodiak voters will face a ballot measure related to bond issues during the October election. The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved putting it on the ballot during its regular meeting last night. If passed this fall, the borough would be allowed to issue general obligation bonds worth more than $10 million to finance renovations to various school facilities throughout the borough, including the villages.
           The bonds could be eligible for a 70 percent reimbursement from the state, which is why Assemblyman Frank Peterson said he would vote in favor of pushing the matter forward.
            “We don’t know what’s going to happen from year to year with the legislative appropriations. It’s gone from 90/10 to 70/30, next year it could be 60/40 or nothing. It could be 50/50 or it could be nothing. I think it’s important that we take advantage of this opportunity while we have the chance. To have the state pay for $8 million of a $10 million project seems like a no brainer to me because these are projects that we’re going to have to pay for anyway. So let’s do it.”

Coming up this week, a four-day troll closure starts this weekend in Southeast, a tailings dam burst in British Columbia, contaminating important salmon rivers, and we take another look into the archives. We had help from KCAW’s Rachel Waldholz and Greta Mart in Sitka, CoastAlaska’s Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau, KCHU’s Tony Gorman in Valdez, KUCB’s Annie Ropeik in Unalaska and KMXT’s Marina Cummiskey in Kodiak.

           Senator Mark Begich was in Kodiak yesterday on a campaign tour. The Alaska democrat is seeking re-election this November and stopped by KMXT to talk about how the campaign is going. Overall, Begich said he feels good about the race, but acknowledged that it is a tough one.
            “And I think it will be a close election, as you know the republican primary is going on now for the next two weeks and I think there’s a lot of angst going on over there. A lot of negative going on. I mean it’s amazing the mailers that I’ve now seen going back and forth, the radio commentary.”  
             He said he’s taken a few beatings from some of his opponents, which include Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell, Dan Sullivan and Joe Miller, but the heat has shifted a bit now that the primary election is underway.
              “We’ll see who comes out of the primary. But there’ll be a Republican, there’ll be a Libertarian, there’ll be an Alaska Independence Party, there’ll be me, and there’ll be one or two others who have signed up for November. So it’s going to be a crowded, busy campaign. But we expect more beatings, more attacks, we hope they focus on the issues, and if they distort my record, we’ll push back.”
