           Last week Alaska Senator Mark Begich was in Kodiak on a campaign swing. Begich is running for re-election this fall and opened a campaign office on the island. While in town he took the time to stop by KMXT and talk about a few issues pertinent to the Kodiak community. This week we’ll bring you excerpts from that conversation, starting with drugs and drug abuse.
           Begich said Kodiak’s drug problem is one that’s all too familiar around the state. One thing being done in Southeast Alaska is collaboration between local law enforcement and the United States Postal Service.
            “Because that’s were some of these drugs will come through. And there’s not enough inspection capacity. And we think that working with the local communities and the local police officers allow them capacity to inspect postal packages – not just waiting for the post office to do, because they can only do a certain percentage, will have an impact.”

            Representatives from the Alaska State Museum are in town this week to gather community input on the new museum being built in Juneau. Steve Henrikson is the curator of collections for the state museum and said construction isn’t expected to wrap up for another two years, but he and other museum staff and collaborators have been traveling the state to ask folks what they think should be a part of the new exhibits.
              “It’s a difficult task to take so many millions of items, whether they’re artifacts or photographs or papers, and decide what of that we’re going to be able to put on exhibit. Obviously we’re not going to have enough room, even though we have a huge new building, it’s still a limited amount of space. So in the process of consulting we’re working with local experts, elders, cultural leaders and the general public all around the state to figure out exactly what is of interest to people and what do they think is important to let the world know about Alaska, why is it special and why is it significant.”

           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.
