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!

           It’s no secret that Kodiak’s animals and plants have long provided sustenance for those who call the island home. However, one local plant enthusiast has looked beyond the dinner table in terms of what local plants can provide. In recent years, Gayla Pedersen has used her knowledge of traditional Native uses for plants to create her own line of natural products.
           “It started a couple of years ago with some encouragement from a couple good friends. And I have this desire to pick and collect herbs and I had jars and jars of them all over my house and a friend of mine said why don’t you make some stuff out of them and sell it.”    
             She started with some recipes that she collected over the years and turned her collection of herbs into lotions, tinctures, chapsticks, salves and teas. Her goal is to keep it as pure as possible, and she uses organic oils, butters and primarily uses glass packaging and cold processing methods.
             Pedersen said every year she develops a favorite ingredient, and this year one of the local plants she focused on was pineapple weed.
              “And it’s been a long term relationship trying to develop and get to know this plant and I’ve had some really amazing successes with it. Including things like making a remedy for nightmares, with incredible success. It’s amazing.”

           Roughly 15 Alaska Native Villages will receive more than $7 million in funding for housing improvements and community development.
           The money comes from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s Indian Community Development Block Grant Program. The purpose of the program is to help Indian and Alaska Native communities create safe, healthy environments and viable economic opportunities. All total, more than $59 million was awarded to 96 tribal communities throughout the nation.
            Here in Alaska, more than a dozen Native villages and communities will receive funds, including the Pribilof Islands Aleut Community of Saint Paul Island. The $600,000 grant will go toward building 12 single-family, low-to-moderate income homes.
             The Native Village of Akutan will receive $170,680 to help rehabilitate the only existing low-rent facility in the community and the Native Village of Atka will use $600,000 to build two homes through the Aleutian Housing Authority.

          October is national Walk to School Month and next week some Kodiak schools will celebrate this by competing in the annual Walk and Roll contest. The two week competition encourages students to walk or bike to school, when it is safe to do so, and provides prize incentives.
           Tom Pogson is the local Safe Routes to School coordinator through Island Trails Network and has worked with the districts wellness coordinator, Gloria Scalzo, to help put on the program.
            “And in an ideal world, if we didn’t have all the barriers to safe walking and biking, we would want all the kids that live close enough to school to walk and bike safely to school.”
