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!

           Folks driving on Rezanof between Piers II and III may have noticed some work being done on the Pillar Mountain hillside lining the road. Rick Ryser is the owner of Golden Alaska Excavating, the company that was contracted by the State Department of Transportation to remove a portion of the ever-growing rock slide and clear up space behind the retaining wall along the road.
           Ryser said rocks have been falling down that hillside for the past 40 years, and built up behind the rock wall to the point where it had become a safety hazard for drivers.
            “The last two to three years they were actually going out on the road and a car actually got crushed from one of them.”

Coming up this week, it looks like king salmon on the Yukon have returned in slightly better numbers than expected, a form of whale repellant is being tested by fishermen in Southeast, and Ketchikan doubles-down on shellfish production. We had help from KNOM’s Matthew Smith in Nome, KCAW’s Elizabeth Jenkins in Sitka, KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in Ketchikan, and KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak.

           It’s Relay for Life time again in Kodiak. Each year hundreds of community members take to the Woody Way field and participate in the 24-hour relay while raising funds for the American Cancer Society. This will be the 8th year for Kodiak’s Relay for Life and more than 16 teams are signed up.
            Angela Graham helped organize the event and said this year’s relay will be superhero-themed. She said they are hoping to raise $50,000.
            “It’s a community event that we can all get together and stand behind those who are fighting cancer, we can with the people that have survived cancer and we can hold the hands of people that have lost somebody to cancer.” 
            Still, fundraising is the goal, because Graham said the American Cancer Society provides a lot of financial support to Kodiak families that are fighting cancer, including airfare to and from off island appointments.
            “There’s all sorts of services once you get to Anchorage for the Kodiak folks. There’s wigs for those that lose their hair that need that option. So the money goes into so many different avenues of getting rid of cancer.”

           Graham added that research is included in that.

Pasagshak Drainage Closing to Sockeye Angling
Wednesday, 16 July 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    Poor escapement has claimed another popular sportsfishing spot on Kodiak Island. In an emergency order today (Wednesday), the Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced the closure of the Pasagshak River drainage to sportfishing for sockeye salmon. It goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and is closed until further notice.
    According to Fish and Game figures, the escapement goal for sockeye into the Pasagshak River drainage is 3,000 fish, but as of Monday (July 14), the weir count was just 410 sockeye salmon.
    As a result, and based on historical run timing, the department is not projecting the Pasagshak system to meet its goal.

Former Mayor Comments on Borough 'Decorum' Ordinance

    When the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meets Thursday night, there will likely be a number of residents rising to speak out about an ordinance passed two weeks ago. Ordinance Number 2014-20, was sponsored by Assemblywomen Carol Austerman and Chris Lynch.
    Calling for decorum during public and assembly member comment, the ordinance requires the presiding officer to immediately stop the speaker if they engage in personal attacks or impugn the motives of an assembly member.
    Former Borough Mayor Jerome Selby chaired hundreds, if not thousands, of meetings over the years, and is very familiar with Roberts Rules of Order and its limitations in practice.
    “You can put anything you want to in an ordinance, but realistically in the middle of a meeting there are some folks who are simply not going to abide by the rules. And you got to understand that. So you need to use the Roberts Rules of order and whatever other tools you have available to keep folks on target. They’re supposed to be commenting on the policy – which there’s nothing about policy that has to do with individuals. But some folks can’t get that through their head and some folks think that the way they will affect policy is to attack somebody. Which of course they defeat their purpose when they do that. But they never understand that.”
    Having wielded the chair’s gavel to stop abusive or otherwise off-topic speakers on occasion, Selby said he understands what the assembly was trying to do with the decorum ordinance.
