            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.”

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.”
