    Today we’ll hear from Art Zimmer.
    Kodiak builder Art Zimmer was in the midst of loading lumber onto his flatbed when the earthquake struck. He was relatively new to town and did not know that tsunamis often follow large earthquakes in coastal Alaska.

    Waves of Destruction is a Kodiak College oral history exhibit of the 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake and resulting tsunami. In the 1990s, students in Gary Stevens' Alaska History classes at Kodiak College recorded the stories of more than 120 Kodiak residents, which were later archived at the University of Alaska Rasmusson Library. The Waves of Destruction online exhibit draws excerpts from these recordings to tell the story of the 1964 earthquake and tsunami in the voices of those who experienced them.
    Today we’ll hear from Charles Mackey. He was on board the fishing boat The Ribbage, and was initially unaware of the earthquake. In the following excerpt, he describes his dramatic escape from the Kodiak boat harbor when the tsunami hit and is aftermath.

    This Thursday will be the 50th Anniversary of the Good Friday Earthquake and Tsunami that devastated Kodiak in 1964. There will be many activities occurring around Kodiak this week to commemorate those historic events, including the grand opening of a new exhibit at the Baranov Museum. KMXT’s news intern, Marina Cummiskey, has more.
    Anjuli Grantham, the curator of collections and exhibits at the museum, said the exhibit will focus on the earthquake and tsunami.
    “The exhibit is going to include information about how Kodiak responded to the ’64 Earthquake and Tsunami, but also other events that were taking place in Kodiak in 1964; we want to kind of give a sense of this time as being a moment of change,” she said. “Thus the title ‘Waves of Change’ and it was more than just the tsunami that impacted Kodiak that year.”
     The exhibit will open this Thursday at 5:30 p.m., six minutes before the earthquake began 50 years ago. The exhibit will be on display through 2015.
    As for other events commemorating the earthquake and tsunami, there will be a lecture by Patrick Saltonstall at the Alutiiq Museum on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Kodiak College will hold an opening reception of an online oral history exhibit Friday at 7 p.m., and there will be a walking tour through downtown Kodiak on Thursday at 5 p.m. put on by the Maritime Museum. There will also be the ‘Run for High Ground’ footrace on Saturday beginning at the Sun’aq Tribal Center at 9 a.m. and ending at the public library, where there will be another event to acknowledge the anniversary.

    It’s been 25 years today (Monday) since the Exxon Valdez tanker ran aground, spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil in Prince William Sound.
    Around the Capitol Building, the memories for many are still fresh, as Jeremy Hsieh found out.
    Twenty-five years ago, Marta Lastufka saw a puzzling ill omen. She was at a party where a woman was giving readings with tarot cards.
    “And everybody kept getting this scary card, it was like, the death card.,” she said, ‘You know, I don’t know what this means, but something is going to happen that’s going to affect all of you. And that was probably just a few days before the Valdez oil spill. And then we realized, oh, that was it.”
    The spill brought a frenzy of activity to Alaska – workers, reporters and profiteers.  Legislative aide Ron Clark had a front seat.
    "At the time the Exxon-Valdez went aground, I was a special assistant to Gov. Steve Cowper."
    Clark and the governor flew up to Valdez a few days after the spill. They got off the plane, and Clark remembers the governor asking him, “Are you ready for this?”
