An EXTRA Talk of Alaska this week
It's getting closer and closer and schedules are getting tighter and tighter so this week the folks at APRN are adding an additional episode of Talk of Alaska so we can all be a little bit more knowledgeable when it's time to fill in the dots. The Governor makes his appearance Tuesday morning and the challenger, Bill Walker, makes his appearance Wednesday morning. Both live at 10am Tuesday and Wednesday this week (and both being repeated the same evening at 9pm on HD3)
 
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!

    June is Filipino American month in Kodiak. The proclamation was made by Borough Mayor Jerrol Friend during the Borough Assembly’s regular meeting earlier this month.
    “It’s my honor tonight to make the proclamation declaring Filipino American heritage month in Kodiak, where as the Kodiak island borough is made up of a wonderful mosaic of culturally diverse people in where as Filipino Americans make vital contributions to the economic, social and political and cultural qualities of life in the community, and where as June 12th 2014 marks the 116th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine independence.”
Mary Guilis-Hawver, the current president of the Filipino American Association, accepted the proclamation during the meeting.
    “On behalf of my organization and the Filipino community in Kodiak, I’d like to thank you and accept this proclamation declaring June 2014 as the FilAm heritage month in Kodiak.”
    The will hold its next regular meeting on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers. It will be broadcast live here on KMXT.

Coming up this week, they started fishing on the Kuskokwim this week, much to the relief of pretty much everybody; The President is moving to crack down on IUU fishing to protect American stocks, and saving king salmon from low water. Thanks to Brianna Gibbs for filling in while Jay was away. We had help this week from KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel and APRN’s Liz Ruskin in Washington DC.

Al Asuncion/KMXT

           Hi, I’m Al Asuncion, an intern at KMXT as part of the station’s summer archiving project. This week, I listened to the show “My Green Earth”, hosted by Stacy Studebaker, also known as Leila Liverwort.
           “Hello everyone and welcome to “My Green Earth,” a weekly radio show about the environment for the young and young at heart. I’m your host Leila Liverwort and today we’re going to dedicate our show to that big, round shining thing in the sky that we all love so much, the Sun.”
            This episode, titled “The Sun” aired on KMXT in March of 1994. In the show, Leila described how the Sun is so far away, but close enough for us to benefit.
            “It radiates so much energy that it warms our planet just the right amount to make life possible and comfortable most of the time.”
             This show also explained an astounding discovery about what makes up the Sun and how its energy is given off.
             “By studying the Sun with special instruments, scientists learned that hydrogen makes up about 90% of the Sun’s content and hydrogen and helium together make up 98%.  Now, the Sun’s gravity is so strong because it is so big that the center is ten times denser than iron. This enormous pressure changes the structure of atom, tiny bits of matter, within the core of the sun. To a process called nuclear fusion, the nuclei, or centers of hydrogen atom, fuse to form another element called helium. As this happens, energy is given off.
              This week, I also came across a reel containing a poem read by Susan Jeffrey for her contribution to International Women’s Day titled “Eight Days before She Died.”
               “I’m Susan Jeffrey and it’s my contribution to International Women’s Day, I’d like to hear a poem I’ve written. The poem is about Karen Silkwood, the first hero of the nuclear movement.”
                Jeffrey also explained how Karen Silkwood is a feminist hero.
                “She was a young woman when she got married a sophomore in college; she had three kids.  She told her husband that she wanted to finish college and go back to work, and he literally traded her in a more conventional model...wife.”
               The reel didn’t include any date for when the poem might have aired on KMXT. Here’s a bit of the poem for your enjoyment.
               Thank you for joining me this week as I recap some amazing real-to-reel audio.

Monashka Creek, Bay Closed to King Angling
Friday, 27 June 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    Effective tomorrow, sport fishing for king salmon is closed in the entire Monashka Creek drainage and in the waters of Monashka Bay a line extending from Miller Point to Termination Point. That word today from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Sportsfish Division in Kodiak.
    The Monashka Creek drainage supports an enhanced run of king salmon, and fish returning there are used by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game as a brood source for hatchery-rearing chinook salmon.
    The department’s annual broodstock goal is a minimum of 50 spawning female and 50 spawning male kings. Over the past decade, at least 50 percent of the goal had been met by June 25th, but as of Wednesday, no king salmon had yet returned.
    This closure prohibits all sport fishing, including catch-and-release fishing, for king salmon. Kings may not be possessed or retained, and any caught incidentally while fishing for other species may not be removed from the water and must be released immediately.
    In addition, only one unbaited, single hook artificial lure may be used in the waters of Monashka Creek which otherwise remain open to sport fishing.
    Fishing opportunity may be restored by subsequent emergency order if king salmon returns to Monashka Creek indicate that brood source collection goals will be achieved.

           Tributes continue to come in from the community remembering Iver Malutin, who died Wednesday at the age of 82.
           The Kodiak elder and community leader had been hospitalized in Anchorage following heart valve replacement surgery.
           Alutiiq Museum Director Alisha Drabek said she always considered Malutin a mentor, and feels fortunate to have had him in her life.
            “That was a wonderful thing to have someone who spoke so eloquently and was not afraid to speak his mind and was an advocate for the community who you could run things by, you could talk to, and that was one of the special things about Iver is that he knew what was going on across the community and he was a great person to get advice from.”
