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!

           Coming up this week, the feds have firmed up their position on the Western Steller sea lions, as the first kings hit the Kuskokwim, communities have decided how to divvy up federal disaster funds, and a former Kodiak biologist releases the definitive guide to king crab. We had help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, KYUK’s Charles Enoch and Ben Matheson in Bethel, Coast Alaska’s Ed Schoenfeld in Wrangell, and KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak.

           Salmon are already starting to make their way up the rivers along the Kodiak road system, which means they’re also showing up on dinner plates. It’s probably safe to say that everyone has a favorite way to cook their prized catches, but few methods are probably as elaborate and celebrated as those of local Chef Joel Chenet. This weekend Chenet will dish up a variety of salmon recipes for his annual first salmon of the year benefit dinner.
           This is Chenet’s 12th year hosting the dinner, which features salmon-themed dishes prepared in a plethora of ways. Think salmon dumpling soup, salmon jerky quiche and Caesar salad with smoked salmon dressing, among other gourmet plates.
           “All salmon!”   
            The dinner is a fundraiser, and Chenet said the proceeds go to a different organization or charity each year. 
            “And it went to the Alutiiq Dancers, the VFW, the Wounded Warriors, the library last year. And this year all the proceeds for the dinner are going to go to the families of the two state troopers that lost their lives in Tanana.”

            Earlier this month Sergeant Patrick “Scott” Johnson and Trooper Gabriel “Gabe” Rich were killed while trying to arrest Tanana resident Arvin Kangas.

Senate Candidate Treadwell Talks Fish in Kodiak

           Crab Fest 2014 attracted a number of folks to the downtown area over the weekend, and even some visitors to the island. One of those visitors was Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell – a current Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.
           Treadwell’s trip to Kodiak wasn’t his first. In fact, he’s been to the island many times, more recently for a fundraiser this past winter. This particular visit was to attend Crab Fest, but also to take part in a fisheries debate that was supposed to happen over the weekend.
            “And neither of my Republican opponents wanted to show up so we instead set something up at the Fisherman’s Hall, the harbormaster’s office, and invited fishermen, their families, and anyone else to come in and talk.”   
            Treadwell said his two biggest primary opponents, Joe Miller and Dan Sullivan, are both good men, but neither have a sufficient background and knowledge on fisheries issues.
            “What I can say to people in this business is that when I first landed in Alaska, 1974, Governor Wally Hickel was advocating, with many other Alaskans for the 200-mile limit. He put me to work helping to write the arguments that ultimately carried the day in 1976 that got us the 200-mile limit. I then wrote several very intensive papers in college including my bachelor’s thesis on fishing in Bristol Bay. I then went on to graduate school, and I’ve worked as a citizen or in government or on science boards to help improve our science capacity, to help get a CDQ program here and bring more jobs home. And I’ve been working with the fishing industry my entire time in Alaska.”

Assembly Will Talk Logging Tonight
Thursday, 29 May 2014

           Tonight the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will meet for a work session and discuss logging at length. The assembly is set to hear from Robert Deal, a research forester and ecosystem services team leader from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Deal is set to present his thoughts on logging practices, specifically what has been done in southeast Alaska, and how it might apply to logging being done, or could be done, here in Kodiak.
            In recent weeks there has been a series of community events regarding Leisnoi’s logging practices on its privately-owned land in Chiniak. There was a public meeting earlier this month and a protest outside the Afognak Native Corporation headquarters on Near Island. A new group, the Kodiak Conservation Society, has formed in opposition to the logging and hopes to present aerial photos of the logged areas in Chiniak during tonight’s work session.
            Likewise, Leisnoi President and CEO Von Veeh has requested an opportunity to address current timber practices and hopefully shed some light on what is being done on their land.
            Tonight’s work session will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room and will also include a final borough budget review by the assembly, including nonprofit funding.

           Sewer rates are set to rise this summer. During the City Council’s regular meeting on Thursday the council voted in favor of a 5 percent rate increase per year for five years.
           The increase comes after the city contracted with CH2M Hill for a sewer rate study to consider the personnel, capital and other costs associated with operating the sewer system. The results of that study were presented during the council’s May 20 work session.
           City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said it is a very complex and aging sewer collection system, and the wastewater treatment plant is going to need significant repairs in the not so distant future.   
           “So we have to also anticipate those critical things that are coming down the road. The compost facility, which the design is being completed at this point, and we need to start looking at refurbishment of the wastewater treatment plant. We’ve got our NPDES permit – that’s our discharge permit into the waters of Kodiak from our wastewater treatment plant. Those regulations have changed substantially since ours were issued and we’re going to be requiring some changes, we don’t know what those look like.”
