Coming up this week, we’ve got salmon updates from every corner of the state; we’re reminded of the dangers of commercial fishing, and the ANB Harbor in Sitka finally has a ribbon-cutting. All that and more, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KHNS’ Margaret Friedenauer in Haines, KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel, KNOM’s Zacharia Hughes in Nome, KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, and KCAW’s Greta Mart in Sitka.

Marie Rice poses with Sum' Arts camper Oskar Klausner after an interview at KMXT studios in June.      

 

Last month KMXT partnered with the Kodiak Arts Council to put on a Sum’ Arts for Kids Radio Storytelling Camp. Students in 5th grade and higher came to the station each day for one week and learned the art of interviewing and collecting personal stories.  Then, their skills were put the test as they interviewed community members about their lives and how they came to Kodiak.
           Today we’ll hear one of those interviews, hosted and edited by camper Oskar Klausner. Klausner spoke with long-time resident Marie Rice about homesteading and cattle-raising in Kodiak.

           Kodiak High School will have a new principal this fall, but it won’t be an unfamiliar face. Chris Aguirre actually began his administrative career in Kodiak back in 2005 when he moved to the Island for a year to be the district’s career and technical education director.
           “Which was just a great start and actually helped me tremendously in my career.”  
           A family issue made Aguirre move to New York after that first year in Kodiak, where he spent roughly eight years working in public education. He was the founding principal of New York City’s City Polytechnic High School of Engineering, Architecture and Technology – an early college high school that provided college credits to graduating students.
           “And when I got through my first graduating class and wanted to actually spend a little more time with my wife and family I went into higher education. And I had a great experience but decided that where I below was in public ed.”

            A Kodiak High School alumna was selected as a top 50 finalist for an international modeling competition. Leona Gerlitz (gr-litz) is the running to win the Sin City Suicide Girls’ photo contest, which would allow her to represent the film Sin City 2 both at the premiere and Comic-Con in San Diego.
            Gerlitz, a 2010 KHS graduate, said the contest is sponsored by the Suicide Girls’ website, which she said celebrates alternative beauty.
            “Spanning anywhere from tattoos and piercings to different hair colors and beyond that to represent girls who are outside of the norm.” 
            Gerlitz, who currently lives and attends school in Portland, Oregon, said she first heard about the international contest from a coworker who encouraged her to apply, but she didn’t think anything would necessarily come of it.
            To enter, Gerlitz submitted a photo of herself, taken by a friend that is a professional photographer. Her photo, along with the 49 other finalists, is now featured on the Suicide Girls’ Facebook page
             “I was selected as a top 50 finalist which I thought was bananas.”

Al Asuncion/KMXT

            Hello, I’m Al Asuncion, an intern at KMXT as part of the station’s summer archiving project. This week, I listened to the show “My Green Earth”, hosted by Stacy Studebaker, also known as Leila Liverwort. 
           “Hello nature fans and welcome to “My Green Earth,” a weekly radio shows about the natural wonders of our planet for kids and their parents. I’m your host, Leila Liverwort; and today’s show features one of the world’s most mysterious and beautiful fish, the Salmon.
           This episode, titled “The Salmon” aired on KMXT in June of 1994. In the show, Leila tells some information about them that I found interesting.
            “Salmon are kind of unusual among fishers because they live part of their lives in freshwater habitat like rivers and lakes; and the other part of their lives in the ocean. In late spring or early summer, like clockwork; the salmon begin to show up in vast numbers along the seashores of the Pacific Northwest, returning to the streams and rivers where they were born. A salmon may swim thousands of miles of its lifetime to complete its life cycle."
