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!

Brianna Gibbs/KMXT
           One of the leading voices against United Nations Agenda 21 is coming to Kodiak this week. Rosa Koire is the author of Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21, and director of the Post Sustainability Institute, an organization that studies the impacts sustainable development could pose on individual freedoms.
           U.N. Agenda 21 is a worldwide action plan for sustainable development that was created during the U.N. Conference on the Environment and Development that took place in Brazil in 1992. It is a non-binding action plan that can be voluntarily implemented on a local, national or global level.
            Koire believes the plan is really about globalization and could potentially limit the freedoms of individuals worldwide.

Clean Up Underway in Rocket Explosion Aftermath
Wednesday, 27 August 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it - AP
    A military safety team is cleaning up any unexploded rocket fuel and other potentially dangerous debris at the Kodiak Launch Complex following the explosion Monday of a rocket carrying an experimental Army hypersonic glider.
    Officials are waiting for the military team from Anchorage to do the cleanup before damage to the launch complex is fully assessed. The air space above the Kodiak Launch Complex has been closed below 2,000 feet.
    The rocket carrying the Army's Advanced Hypersonic Weapon blew up four seconds after it lifted off, according to Department of Defense spokeswoman Maureen Schumann. She says a so-far unidentified anomaly was detected and the rocket self-destructed for safety reasons. Eyewitnesses told KMXT that almost immediately after lift-off the rocket tipped over and started to loop before it blew up. The flash from the explosion and ensuing fire could be seen from 25 miles away.
    Debris and the shockwave from the massive explosion damaged several buildings on the rocket range. Alaska Aerospace Corp. President Craig Campbell says sheet metal siding, roofs and doors were bent and broken. Windows were reportedly blown out miles away. No injuries were reported.

           As one of the largest fishing ports in the nation, it only makes sense that Kodiak would host a gubernatorial debate focused solely on the seafood industry. This week the three lead candidates for governor, Incumbent Sean Parnell, Independent Bill Walker and Democrat Byron Mallot will descend on Kodiak and talk about seafood during a debate hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and KMXT.    
            Long time Fish Radio Host Laine Welch helped organize the debate, and spoke with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs about what to expect.

           It’s been almost a year since the topic of composting biosolids has made it to a Kodiak City Council agenda, but work has been well underway to make it a reality. The design for the new composting facility is at 95 percent, and City Manager Aimee Kniaziowksi said they are getting ready to submit the design to the the Alaska Department of Enviornmental Conservation for permitting.
            “That’s the next step and once we’re issued a permit then we can begin the process of building this facility and migrating over. We’re currently doing compost class B on the borough landfill at the top of the current landfill pile, so we’ll migrate that to the new facility once it’s been designed and ready.”   
             The goal is to eventually produce a higher quality class A compost at the new facility.
              Mark Kozak is the public works director for the city and said a meeting was held with folks from the Monashka Bay community about a year ago to talk about preliminary plans for the composting facility.
              “Because they’re the nearest neighbor to this potential site. We took their public input and then we started the design. And now we’re at the point where the design is ready to be submitted to DEC to start the permit process. And what we want to do is visit with the public again, let them see the design and ask their questions, so that they know when we submit our permit, what the facility is like, how the process is managed and handled and then we can hear and get feedback from them now if there’s anything they have concerns about.”

            On today's edition of Talk of the Rock we'll hear an interview with Kodiak City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski, Public Works Director Mark Kozak and City Engineer Glenn Melvin about the proposed composting facility at the landfill. The class A composting facility is 95 percent designed and city staff are seeking public input before they submit the plans to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. 

            There will be a public meeting about composting and plans for the new facility on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Bayside Fire Hall. The gathering will include a panel question and answer session with three composting experts from CH2M Hill, the company designing the composting facility, and a representative from the DEC.
            Kniaziowski said city staff will present the current design for the project, including maps and pictures, and detail how it will operate and the ultimate goal for class A composting in Kodiak.
