Congressional Fisheries Debate

Why is it important for Alaska’s Congressmen to know about fisheries? Because 85 percent of Alaska’s fish and crab catches come from federal waters, meaning three to 200 miles from shore.

 

Come see Alaska US Senator Mark Begich and his opponent Dan Sullivan face off over fish issues, followed by Congressman Don Young and his challenger Forrest Dunbar. Wednesday, October 1 from 7-9pm at the high school auditorium. Submit questions at the door and learn who’s best for Alaska’s fisheries in DC.

    The highly controversial decorum ordinance the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed last month will be coming back for reconsideration.
    The request is being made by Assemblywoman Carol Austerman, who originally introduced the ordinance.
    “We understand that people are concerned about the free speech. But the ordinance is really being interpreted in a way that we didn’t intend. I hope to be able to address those concerns through more conversation.”
    There was an outpouring of anger from borough residents, and at least two threats of violence made against assembly members. A citizen-led effort to put an initiative on October’s ballot repealing the ordinance failed. The ordinance was derided as a way for the assembly to stifle open conversation at meetings, but Austerman says that was unintended.
    “I’m really concerned about the amount of feedback that we’ve received over the last couple of weeks about the decorum ordinance. Our original intent of that ordinance was to protect the dignity of our borough employees. We’ve had some attacks to the staff that we were uncomfortable at public meetings. And so it was not to discourage input or public comment in any way. That wasn’t the intent of it.”
    Austerman said she and Assemblyman Tuck Bonney will ask at Thursday’s assembly work session that the decorum ordinance be put on the agenda of next week’s assembly meeting for reconsideration. She added that public input on how to accomplish the dual goals of protecting borough employees from verbal attacks while not stifling public comment will be welcome.

           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.”

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.
