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!

Coming up this week, a four-day troll closure starts this weekend in Southeast, a tailings dam burst in British Columbia, contaminating important salmon rivers, and we take another look into the archives. We had help from KCAW’s Rachel Waldholz and Greta Mart in Sitka, CoastAlaska’s Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau, KCHU’s Tony Gorman in Valdez, KUCB’s Annie Ropeik in Unalaska and KMXT’s Marina Cummiskey in Kodiak.

           Senator Mark Begich was in Kodiak yesterday on a campaign tour. The Alaska democrat is seeking re-election this November and stopped by KMXT to talk about how the campaign is going. Overall, Begich said he feels good about the race, but acknowledged that it is a tough one.
            “And I think it will be a close election, as you know the republican primary is going on now for the next two weeks and I think there’s a lot of angst going on over there. A lot of negative going on. I mean it’s amazing the mailers that I’ve now seen going back and forth, the radio commentary.”  
             He said he’s taken a few beatings from some of his opponents, which include Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell, Dan Sullivan and Joe Miller, but the heat has shifted a bit now that the primary election is underway.
              “We’ll see who comes out of the primary. But there’ll be a Republican, there’ll be a Libertarian, there’ll be an Alaska Independence Party, there’ll be me, and there’ll be one or two others who have signed up for November. So it’s going to be a crowded, busy campaign. But we expect more beatings, more attacks, we hope they focus on the issues, and if they distort my record, we’ll push back.”

Alex Haley Crewmen Assist Three Adrift Mariners
Thursday, 07 August 2014

    The crew from the Kodiak-based Coast Guard cutter Alex Haley assisted three mariners late Tuesday after their skiff experienced outboard troubles near Nome.
    The Nome police department contacted the Alex Haley that they had lost contact with a 16-foot skiff that was disabled and adrift. The Coast Guardsmen launched a small boat and found the skiff being assisted by Good Samaritans. But after it got back underway, the skiff’s engine died again and it was taken under tow by the Alex Haley crew and escorted to the Nome small boat harbor. Wind and seas were light and no injuries were reported.
    The Alex Haley is in Northwest Arctic waters as part of Arctic Shield, the Coast Guard’s program to increase patrols in the far north as sea ice continues to recede and ship traffic increases.

Monday was the first egg-take of the season for the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association. A group of volunteers and KRAA staff made the trek to Afognak Lake where they spent the day harvesting and fertilizing sockeye salmon eggs.
            Afognak Lake is about 20 minutes by air from Trident Basin, on Near Island. It takes two flights to bring the full crew of volunteers and KRAA staff out to the egg-take site. As the floatplane descends onto the water, small net pens become visible along the shoreline. They hold the brood stock – or parent stock – of sockeye salmon that will be used for the day’s egg take.

 The pens were built by KRAA crews that have been camping out on the lake for about ten days, getting things ready for Monday’s harvest.

           “The first day is spent ferrying our gear and everything over to the island and building our camp. And then the next day we come back over here and build our pen frames, put the nets on them and we go over to the creek and start dragging our seine through the water to catch fish.”
           That’s Drew Walter, the assistant manager for the Pillar Creek Hatchery. If you think of Monday’s egg-take like a factory, Walter would be the operations supervisor – the guy making sure everything is working right and going according to plan.
           The egg-take itself works like an assembly line, but comes with higher stakes – such as the quality of future fish runs – if any part of the process slips up.

    One of the fastest-growing sports in the nation is coming to Kodiak next week. “Rumble on the Rock” is a night of ten or more mixed martial arts bouts. And since it’s held in a fenced-in octagon and not held in a ring like boxing or professional wrestling, MMA is also known as cage fighting.
    KMXT’s Jay Barrett spoke with the local promoter for the Rumble on the Rock, DJ Marc Ignatio.
