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!

           A former Kodiak doctor recently dabbled in the art of book writing while documenting his own family history in Alaska.

           Dr. Bob Johnson’s new book, “Alaska Frontier Surgeon,” captures the life story of his father, the late Dr. Arthur Holmes Johnson, who was the first physician to call Kodiak home. Johnson said his dad first stopped in Kodiak in the late 1930s, on his way back to Oregon after working as a doctor in Nak Nek for the summer. He said his dad fell in love with the island and its small community.
           “It was a village, about 550 people. That’s sure not many people to support a doctor, but Kodiak captured him, as it had captured others.”

           For the past three weeks, almost a dozen students in grades 7th-12th have been working diligently on mini documentaries as part of the Baranov Museum's summer film intensive workshop. This is the third year the workshop has taken place, and it typically focuses on one of Kodiak's many historical events. This year the students tackeled the topic of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, which occured 25 years ago. On today's edition of Talk of the Rock, we'll talk with some of those students about their experiences interviewing locals and learning about Kodiak's history, in addition to operating filming equipment and editing their own films.

Hoop House Help Available This Summer

           EQIP  High Tunnels, more commonly known as hoop houses, have been popping up all over Kodiak in the past few years. EQIP stands for Environmental Quality Incentives Program.  
 Dave Kaplan is a certified U.S. Department of Agriculture conservation planner and technical service provider, and does inspections and surveys around the island for new hoop houses. Kaplan says there are more than 50 High Tunnels on the island, and explains why Kodiak is a hotspot for them.
          “You know, they work everywhere. If there’s sun, they work. It’s just an alternative; it provides an incredible food source. It’s amazing: you can grow anything in there. Every high tunnel that I inspect, I’m just amazed what they grow and how healthy the vegetables are. It’s an incredible unit.”
            Hoop houses are increasingly more popular in part because of a nationwide program that actually reimburses people who chose to build them. Applying for a High Tunnel, or at least one that will be reimbursed, is a lengthy process, and includes follow up inspections after the hoop house is built.
