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!

    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.

    A Kodiak man has been appointed to a seat on the Alaska Commission on Aging. David Blacketer was appointed to fill the vacancy on the commission when Kodiak’s Iver Malutin died in June.
    Blacketer is a retiree from Safeway and serves on the board of directors of the Senior Citizens of Kodiak. Working with the Salvation Army, he is also an on-call chaplain for Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center.
    The Alaska Commission on Aging approves comprehensive statewide plans that identify concerns and needs of older Alaskans and prepares an annual analysis of the services that are provided to them.

           Since discontinuing its economic development contract with the Chamber of Commerce earlier this year, the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly is now discussing ways it can fill the role. During Thursday’s work session, Assemblywoman Carol Austerman proposed the possibility of an economic development sub committee, perhaps in conjunction with the city and other borough communities around the archipelago.
           Austerman said she and Assemblymen Frank Peterson and Aaron Griffin have discussed the idea for some time and would all be interested in serving on the committee.
            “And we don’t have any ideas yet I don’t think about what that’s going to look like, but we wanted to put it in front of the assembly as a whole to kind of get the buy in before we started working with the city council.”
            Assemblyman Dave Kaplan said he supported the idea fully, and thought it was important to include the villages in economic plans, because they have been overlooked in the past.

    The registration period opened on the first for candidates running for local office.
    As of Friday, only incumbent Dave Kaplan has filed for another three-year term on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. He, along with assemblymen Tuck Bonney and Mel Stevens all have terms expiring this year.
    There is a pair of seats on the Kodiak City Council for three-year terms that will come available. They belong to Randy Bishop and Terry Haines.
    On the Kodiak Island Borough School Board, two terms will expire, those of President Katie Oliver and the seat previously held by Todd Hailey.
    There are also 10 service area board seats available for three-year terms.
    The deadline to toss your hat into the ring for local elections is August 15th, and the Kodiak Municipal Election is on October 7th.
    Meanwhile, even though the August 19th primary is 15 days away, voting opens today [Monday] for early absentee, special needs and electronic transmission voting.
    State Elections Director Gail Fenumiai says the state has already set up polling places across Alaska.
    “They can go to a variety of locations throughout the state and in front of an absentee voting official and cast their ballot.”
    People have until Saturday to apply for a mail-in ballot, and until August 18th to apply for an electronic ballot.
    “Voting will continue through election day and then polls will be open on August 19th from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for all voters to go vote in person at their polling place on election day,” she said. “Early voting and absentee voting is designed for those voters who know they will not be able to make it to their polling place on election day.”
    In the primary election, voters will decide whether to accept or reject an oil and gas production tax bill, Senate Bill 21, the legislature adopted last session, and they'll pick the candidates for U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Governor and Lt. Governor, and the state Legislature that will move forward into the general election.
