Snap Judgement on KODK 90.7-FM

 

Home

 

Did you know that Snap Judgement airs on our new station, KODK 90.7-FM? This show focuses on the life and stories of our fellow Americans, much like this American life, but Snap has a way of finding and choosing stories that are a little more... taboo. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes terrifying, but always entertaining.

 

Check it out at 10am on Sunday mornings. KODK, a clear alternative.

Yasent Oliver/KMXT
            Hello, my name is Yasent Oliver, a summer intern at KMXT as part of the station's summer archiving project. Over the past two weeks, I was able to listen to quite a few tapes, but the one that stood out to me the most was an NPR program on suicide among Native American youth.
            "From National Public Radio, this is Horizons. I'm Vertamae Grosvenor."
            "Sometimes, living is so painful, that we've all felt like we just want to die. But what is it that makes some of us commit suicide, especially young people? The suicide rate for Indian teenagers is almost twice the national average. Indian and non-Indian, those who have lost their children feel the same pain."
             Throughout the tape, many people told stories of their experiences with suicide.

           More than half a dozen community members attended last night’s Borough Assembly work session to voice their concerns on a recently passed borough ordinance.
           During the assembly’s July 3 meeting, the assembly approved a debate decorum ordinance that, among other things, would prevent community members and those addressing the assembly from attacking or questioning the motives of another person. The ordinance passed in a 5-1 vote with Assemblyman Mel Stephens dissenting.
           The goal of the ordinance was to ensure people behave appropriately and respectfully during meetings, and provide guidelines for handling situations when that isn’t done. But many viewed the ordinance as an over step on the part of the assembly and a potential violation of constitutional rights.
           Dennis Symmons was one of a handful of folks that felt this way.
           “Despite what our legal firm has said, this is over the top.”

Coming up this week, we’ve got salmon updates from every corner of the state; we’re reminded of the dangers of commercial fishing, and the ANB Harbor in Sitka finally has a ribbon-cutting. All that and more, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KHNS’ Margaret Friedenauer in Haines, KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel, KNOM’s Zacharia Hughes in Nome, KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, and KCAW’s Greta Mart in Sitka.

Marie Rice poses with Sum' Arts camper Oskar Klausner after an interview at KMXT studios in June.      

 

Last month KMXT partnered with the Kodiak Arts Council to put on a Sum’ Arts for Kids Radio Storytelling Camp. Students in 5th grade and higher came to the station each day for one week and learned the art of interviewing and collecting personal stories.  Then, their skills were put the test as they interviewed community members about their lives and how they came to Kodiak.
           Today we’ll hear one of those interviews, hosted and edited by camper Oskar Klausner. Klausner spoke with long-time resident Marie Rice about homesteading and cattle-raising in Kodiak.

           Kodiak High School will have a new principal this fall, but it won’t be an unfamiliar face. Chris Aguirre actually began his administrative career in Kodiak back in 2005 when he moved to the Island for a year to be the district’s career and technical education director.
           “Which was just a great start and actually helped me tremendously in my career.”  
           A family issue made Aguirre move to New York after that first year in Kodiak, where he spent roughly eight years working in public education. He was the founding principal of New York City’s City Polytechnic High School of Engineering, Architecture and Technology – an early college high school that provided college credits to graduating students.
           “And when I got through my first graduating class and wanted to actually spend a little more time with my wife and family I went into higher education. And I had a great experience but decided that where I below was in public ed.”
