    Today during the 50th anniversary week of the Great Alaskan Earthquake and Tsunami, we continue our Waves of Destruction series, brought to you by a partnership with the Kodiak College.
    Today we’ll hear from Lena Metrokin:
    Born in Chignik, Alaska, Lena Metrokin moved to Kodiak in 1927 with her husband. She was enjoying a day off after working two weeks straight canning king crab at the cannery downtown when the earthquake struck. She recalls watching from the high school atop the hill overlooking the Near Island Channel the tsunami hit the islands in front of town.

PFD Filing Deadline is Monday PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 27 March 2014

    Every year hundreds of eligible Alaskans lose out on collecting their share of Alaska's oil wealth because they fail to file for their Permanent Fund Dividend by the deadline. This year, the deadline is on Monday, which also turns out to be a state holiday.
    Dan Debartolo is the director of the Department of Revenue Permanent Fund Dividend Division. He says the March 31st date is the deadline mandated by state statute.
    “Which means it’s in Alaska law and we are only able to accept applications online, or through the mail or at our counters through that date. Anything that is postmarked after that date is considered a late application.”
    Debartolo says about 1,200 late applications were received last year, meaning there were 1,200 potentially eligible people who did not receive a PFD check in October.
    The preferred method of filing for a PFD is online, but there are over 400 locations around the state, such as libraries, city and tribal offices and the Legislative Information Office that still have paper applications available.
    “There you can pick up adult applications, child applications, instructions on how to fill out those applications.....”
    Since March 31st is Seward's Day, state offices will be closed – however, the Post Office will be open so you can get a postmark on Monday if you get your application in the mail in time
    If you need to speak to someone with the Permanent Fund Dividend Division about your application you should probably do it today or tomorrow (Friday).
    Along with the deadline for filing for the PFD comes the end of the best time to give to your favorite non-profit through Pick. Click. Give. While you can still make or change a Pick. Click. Give. donation into the summer, Monday is also the deadline for the sweepstakes that could double your gift.
    “We’re standing at about $2.4-million in pledges right now, which is almost $200,000 more than the same point last year.”
    So you have until Monday to join the other 507,000 Alaskans who’ve already filed for this year’s dividend.

    Throughout Alaska on Thursday, residents in communities large and small will be taking to the streets to stand up for peace and human rights, during the now-annual “Choose Respect” march and rally. Here in Kodiak, according to Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center outreach coordinator Sandra Wilkins, participants will gather at noon in the high school parking lot for a march down the hill to the Sun’aq Center on the Mall.
    “We’re doing this ... It’s a march for respect. Really, it’s a pledge for respect. It’s a statewide event – it’s a part of the governor’s initiative to end domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in our communities," Wilkins said. "It’s a march to help the community – to give them the opportunity to come out together and stand up against interpersonal violence and to help promote a safer and happier Kodiak. We’re just trying to go out there to choose respect for our community.”
    Each year a different government official attends marches around the state. This year, Bill Streur, the commissioner of the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services will join Kodiak marchers and give a few words at the Sun’aq Center. Borough Mayor Jerrol Friend and City Mayor Pat Branson are also expected to speak.
    Wilkins points out: that the marchers this year have a lot to live up to.

    “Last year we had the biggest one in all of Alaska, because all of the students from the middle school and some of the students from the high school participated, so it was a really big event last year," she said. "So we’re hopping that we can get more community participation again this year.”
    The march begins at 12:15 at the Kodiak High School parking lot, go down Rezanof and wind up at the Sun’aq Center, where lunch and refreshments will be served.
