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!

            Kodiak’s annual Crab Festival starts tomorrow and it will be a different one than most folks are used to. Last year Golden Wheel, the long-time vendor for rides, said they would not be returning for this year’s festival. That left folks like Summer Wood, the community relations director for the Chamber of Commerce and Crab Fest Manager, scratching their heads on how to ensure the weekend will be fun and entertaining.
            Worry subsided when the Anchorage-based Tons of Fun Entertainment committed to the festival, and Wood said the company will be filling the midway this year with interactive rides and activities.  
            “They have 13 different things which will include things like a climbing wall, bungee runs, a bucking salmon, a bucking bull – a lot of kind of competition things. And there are some bouncing houses for kids. And if you’ve ever seen the show Wipe Out, some of their interactive activities are kind of based off that show. So there is the Meltdown and I think it’s called the Wrecking Ball. So those are some new activities I think even adults will be excited about.”

State Seeks Public Input on New Ferry Design
Tuesday, 20 May 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            People will have a chance to provide input on a replacement vessel for the ferry Tustumena. Tuesday night the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities will hold an open meeting at the Kodiak Public Library to give folks an opportunity to add their voice to the department’s replacement process and hear what plans are already in the works for a new ferry.
            Much needed repairs to the Tustumena last year kept the vessel out of the water for months on end and left many places in south central Alaska with reduced or no ferry service. That ordeal reemphasized to the state the need for a new ferry. While a new vessel is still a few years out, the final design is scheduled to be completed by summer 2015.
            Tuesday's meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at the library’s multipurpose room and is open to the public.

Former Resident Edits King Crab Textbook

           A former crab researcher and Kodiak resident just spent the past three-and-a-half years editing a reference book devoted to the biology and fisheries of king crab. Brad Stevens was in Kodiak visiting a few weeks ago and said the book is the first textbook to focus entirely on king crab.
          Stevens lived in Kodiak from the 1980s until 2006 when he and his family moved to the east coast. He currently works as a professor of environmental science at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Stevens has been researching crab around the world for more than three decades primarily the reproductive biology and aquaculture potential of the species.
          “And I had thought about putting some of this into a book at one point but when I worked for NOAA it would have been difficult for a number of reasons. One is I just really didn’t have time for it and I’m not sure that they would have considered it part of my job. Although we did do some publishing, this was a major undertaking.” 
           Stevens said it wasn’t until 2009, when he joined the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, that pursuing a reference book seemed feasible.

           The Kodiak Crab Fest kicks off on Thursday and on this week’s Talk of the Rock we’re going to hear a little bit about the science behind the crustaceans that inspired the annual festival.
           Brad Stevens was a long-time crab researcher here in Kodiak before he moved to the East Coast in 2006. Stevens returned to Kodiak a few weeks ago for work, and to share his recent project – a reference book devoted to the biology and fisheries of king crab.
