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


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!

Council Will Talk Snack Shack, Safe Streets Tonight
Tuesday, 10 June 2014

           The Kodiak City Council will meet for a work session tonight and discuss, among other things, the possibility of a permanent snack shack at Baranof Park. The council was approached by members of the Kodiak Football League to manage a snack shack that would sell concessions and merchandise during athletic events.
           City code currently prohibits such permanent structures for the purpose of displaying, selling or soliciting the sale of goods or services, but it does allow permits to sell concessions using temporary structures. The football league uses one of these permits annually, but the hope was to build a permanent structure that could then be rented out during the off season or used for city purposes.
           During a work session last month, the city decided the football league should work with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board on the matter. The council will hear the board’s recommendation on the permanent snack shack during tonight’s work session.
           Also on the agenda is a presentation of a proposed Kodiak Safe Streets Taskforce and a discussion of the Marine Highway Transportation Advisory Board’s visit to Kodiak and a possible reception. The council will also hear a presentation on building permit fees and review a draft letter to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the Clean Water Act.
           Tonight’s work session starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the multipurpose room of the Kodiak Public Library. The council will hold a regular meeting this Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

           The Coast Guard cutter SPAR has a new commander. On Friday Lieutenant Commander Douglas Jannusch relieved Michele Schallip as the cutter’s commanding officer.

He was responsible for supporting all regional Coast Guard missions and worked closely with the U.S. Ambassador, among other things. He has a bachelor of the arts from the University of California in Irvine, and a master of international policy and practice from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. 
            Jannusch took over as the SPAR’s commanding officer during a formal change of command ceremony on Friday.

          The U.S. Senate is poised to pass a spending bill that includes more than $150 million for federal programs important to Alaska’s fishing industry and marine navigation. It includes $4 million for electronic monitors for the fishing fleet. Alaska fishermen on small boats have asked for cameras as a substitute for some of the human observers that record catch data. Sen. Lisa Murkowski told her colleagues electronic monitors will allow the mission to continue.
          “But recognizing that our small fishermen just simply cannot put another body on their boat as they’re out working.”
           The bill also includes $25 million for sonar mapping of coastlines, with an emphasis on the need for more data on the Bering Straits and the Arctic. It has $6 million for removing marine debris, especially debris from Japan’s 2011 tsunami that washed up on federal land. The bill funding commerce, justice and science programs passed the Senate Appropriations Committee this week. Both Alaska senators sit on that committee, and Murkowski sits on the subcommittee that drafted the bill.

           The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed a $34 million budget for FY 2015 during its regular meeting Thursday night.
           Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said that revenues for the borough should be stable in 2015, but added that expenditures have increased.
           “There’s increases in salary due to the classification and compensation study. There’s an additional position in the managers office, there’s a half time economic development position, or contract position.” 
           Also included in the budget is a larger travel budget for assembly members, which Assemblyman Aaron Griffin said is to make sure the assembly will visit the borough’s outlying villages and get more involved in what’s happening in rural communities.
           “We took a look at how much contact we were having with our village communities and quite frankly we were lacking and we’ve been lacking for a long time. We are a large borough, it’s really incredible the amount of square mileage that we encompass. It takes money to get out and visit our remote communities.”

           According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 68,000 people are living with diabetes in Alaska. Much of the state is home to rural communities, so having a diabetes specialist, even in places like Kodiak, isn’t always possible. That’s why some hospitals and care clinics are turning to technology to provide health services, like diabetes education.
           Here in Kodiak, Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center recently started offering telehealth diabetes education through a clinic in Oregon. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has more on the program, and how it works.
