Throwback Thursday Contest

***THROWBACK THURSDAY CONTEST***

Send us your best throwback photos! On the day of our fund drive, October 30, we'll post an album of all throwback photos we've received and the photo with the most "likes" on Facebook will win a special KMXT/KODK prize.

A throwback is considered a photo taken before today. So, you could send us a picture from October 20, 2014 and it will still apply! But, really, the older the better. Email your entries to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or post them on our facebook page. We'll gather them into an album for October 30. Good luck!

 

 
Early Pledge Drive

tbt_banner.jpg

It's that time of year when we ask for your support to help us continue to bring you the bits of radio that help you stay an informed citizen (like the debates and election updates), an entertained listener (did you hear This American Life's new spinoff, called Serial?), and apprised of community events (the community calendar is always full this time of year).

 

Not only will you be supporting all of that goodness, but you'll also be entered into a drawing for a set of cross country skis OR a snowboard from Orion's Mountain Sports if you pledge by midnight on October 29! If you're a new member, you'll be entered into a special drawing for a photography package from Simply Lovette Photograpy -- just in time for the holidays.

 

Lots of great stuff this Fall for our pledge drive, including an entire day of retro radio on October 30 (and great food). Stop by, tune in, and pledge right here via the Donate Now button or by calling 486-3181. Thanks!

28-Year-Old Abercrombie XC Record Left in the Dust
Tuesday, 02 September 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    One of the longest-standing sports records in the state was wiped from the record books on Friday. The girls’ cross country mark of 18-minutes 48-seconds, set by Kristi Klinnert, now Waythomas, in 1986, fell during the Kodiak Invitational at Fort Abercrombie. Two-time defending state champion Allie Ostrander of Kenai Central High School bested the record with a time of 17-minutes 34-seconds – a full minute-14 faster than Waythomas.
    Needless to say, Ostrander, a Kardinal senior, won the race handily, crossing the finish line more than two-and-a-half minutes ahead of the second-place runner. And though it’s comparing apples to oranges, Ostrander’s time was faster than all the competitors in the boys’ race, save the top nine.
    Speaking of the boys, Kodiak’s Levi Thomet had a likewise easy win, finishing nearly a minute ahead of second place. Thomet was just three-seconds short of Trevor Dunbar’s course record.
    West Anchorage won the girls’ team title and Kodiak the boys, both with scores of 35. The Kodiak girls were 4th with 87 points.
    We’ve got full results after the jump.

Kodiak Swimmers Down Soldotna
Tuesday, 02 September 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    It was another dominating weekend for the Kodiak High School swimming and diving team at home, with both the girls and boys swamping the Soldotna Stars.
    Led by Tahna Lindquist with eight first-places between relay and individual races, the Kodiak girls won by a score Friday of 164 to SoHi’s 116, and on Saturday 157 to 128. Kodiak swimmers Ila Hughes and Marina Cummiskey each had six individual and relay wins.
    The KODIAK boys won 191-111 on Friday and 185-112 on Saturday. They were led by Talon Lindquist, who, like his sister, had eight first-place finishes.
    We’ve got the weekend’s full results after the jump.
    
    Meanwhile in football, the Kodiak High School Bears only managed a single touchdown on the road against the Kenai Kardinals, and were routed 56-to-8. Isagani Galindez drove the ball in from the two-yard line in the first period for the Bear’s lone touchdown. He followed that up with a running point after, giving Kodiak an 8-7 lead. The rest was all Kenai, with two TDs in the first AND second periods, three in the third and just one in the fourth. The Bears fall to 1-and-2 on the season, and 1-and-1 in the Northern Lights Conference.

Council Narrowly Rejects PANDAA Request

    The vote over the controversial resolution asking the Kodiak City Council to declare a federal law unconstitutional had to go to a mayoral tie-breaker last night. The resolution, suggested by local followers of the group “People Against the National Defense Authorization Act,” or PANDAA, was tied three-three on the six-man council, forcing Mayor Pat Branson to cast the deciding vote:
    “I am going to give you the reasons why I’m going to vote no on this. I think the PANDAA group has been very passionate. It’s not that I disagree with some of the things they brought up. Originally when this was passed in 2011, I was kind of shaking my fist at Congress, saying, ‘what the heck are you doing?’ I think Congressman Young has stated that as well. However, it’s up to congress to change this.”
    Branson suggested the PANDAA group put their campaign against the National Defense Authorization Act to a vote of the people of the entire borough, or perhaps even to the state legislature.
    “It’s not that I disagree with some of the points that have been raised.  I think probably every council member agrees with that. But I think if you want to make this more meaningful for a community, you need to take it outside the city limits.”
    Mayor Branson’s no-vote joined the no votes of councilmen Charlie Davidson, Gabriel Saravia and John Whiddon. Councilmen Terry Haines, Rich Walker and Randy Bishop voted in favor of passage.
    We’ll have a follow up story next week with the reasons the councilmen voted the way they did.

           The three primary candidates running for governor this year convened at Kodiak’s Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium last night for a debate focused solely on topics related to the seafood industry. Incumbent Sean Parnell, Democrat Byron Mallott and Independent candidate Bill Walker fielded dozens of questions from a media panel, audience members and even each other during the event that was broadcast around the state.
            One question posed by an audience member dealt with the Fish and Game and the department’s declining budgets in recent years.
            Parnell said the state is getting a pretty good return on investment when you consider it is spending about $200 million on a $6 to $10 billion industry.
            “The underlying premise of the question about cuts to Fish and Game – I can tell you that with this legislature we have championed putting more dollars into research when it comes to our fisheries. We have now over 100 people working on getting information as to why fisheries are declining – the salmon in particular – in the marine environment, with 36 projects on going. That is incredibly necessary to sustain our fisheries for the years to come. So bottom line is we’re going to continue making that investment – not just into research, but into management of our fisheries, as well as to the marketing aspects as well.”
