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, reports from NOAA bring good news about America’s fisheries, attention in Bristol Bay turns from herring to salmon. All that, and yes, another reality show set in Alaska. We had help from KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham and KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel.

           A local geography whiz is heading to Washington D.C. this week. Thirteen-year-old Gray Harver will represent Alaska in the National Geographic Bee after winning the state competition last month. 
           Harver beat out nearly 100 fourth-through-eight-graders to earn his spot in the D.C. competition. In order to make it to the state competition he needed to place first in his school competition and pass the necessary qualifying exams.
            KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs caught up with Harver this week and asked him about the national geo bee, which will feature students from all 50 states and some territories.

           Three people are behind bars and more heroin is off the streets in Kodiak after their arrest Monday afternoon.
           Charged with robbery, theft, assault, kidnapping and drug misconduct are 39-year-old Jami Gibson, 38-year-old Phil Gibson and 27-year old Julian Valdez. The three were arrested after allegedly tying up three men living in a tent and beating one of them with a wooden rod.
           Sergeant Eric Olsen is with the Alaska State troopers and said the unidentified victims, aged 17, 21 and 23, told troopers they were awakened early Monday morning by someone cutting open their tent. He said they were then tied together with a phone cord and the 21-year-old was beaten repeatedly with what was described as a large wooden dowel. At some point the men were able to escape their captors and seek medical treatment in the emergency room and the troopers were contacted to come investigate.
           “At that point additional resources were obtained. Both the Alaska State Troopers, Alaska Wildlife Troopers and Kodiak Police Department conducted a joint operation in which two search warrants were served at a residence here in Kodiak within the city limits area.”   
           The home belonged to the Gibsons, and during the search officers found about 15 grams of black and brown heroin, 1 gram of methamphetamine, prescription narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The drugs have an approximate street value of $14,000.
            Jami and Phil Gibson were arrested and Olsen said further investigation led to the arrest of a third accomplice, Valdez, later Monday afternoon.
            Olsen said the attack of the three men in the tent was provoked after one of the men reportedly stole a large sum of money from the Gibsons.
            “This is not a random event. The citizens of Kodiak are not in danger of anything else like that. So at this point the case has been presented to the district attorneys office. We’re still conducting follow-up investigation.”

            The three that were arrested were held at the Kodiak jail until their arraignment Tuesday afternoon. Both Phil Gibson and Valdez were held on $250,000 bail as well as a court-appointed third part and Jami Gibson was held on $50,000 bail plus a court-appointed third party.
            Olsen said these recent arrests reaffirm that Kodiak does indeed have a drug problem and it is most likely contributing to other crimes in town.  
            “The town of Kodiak, we have an epidemic of drug problems here in this town. It’s out of control and we’re doing the best we can to follow up on every action and report of narcotics that we receive. It’s a team effort by our agency as well as other local agencies here in Kodiak. And we’re doing the best we can. We realize there’s a problem and we’re doing everything we can to make sure the citizens of Kodiak are safe and that it’s not a continuing problem. But right now meth and heroin is our number one problem and it’s a catalyst for all kinds of different problems. And any help we can get from the public is truly appreciated.”
              Olsen said folks can always report tips to Crime Stoppers anonymously. That phone number is 486-3113.

    Two new reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that America’s commercial fish stocks are largely healthy and worth significant money to the nation.
    Recently two officials with NOAA Fisheries presented the findings of the reports. Alan Risenhoover is director of the Office of Sustainable Fisheries, and Rita Curtis is an economist with the Office of Science and Technology.
    Risenhoover said seven stocks were removed from the overfishing list and seven from the over-fished list, which he describes as good progress:
    He pointed out that several stocks have been added to the overfishing and overfished list, but it was because scientists didn’t previously have the data to classify them.
    The importance of commercial fishing to America was illustrated in how the employment and revenue it generated dwarfs sport angling. The commercial fishing industry generated $141 billion in sales, $39 billion in income, and supported 1.3 million jobs in 2012, while recreational fishing generated $58 billion in sales, $19 billion in income, and supported 381,000 jobs nationwide.

           Yesterday KMXT told you about the new Alaska driver license and photo identification cards that will begin being issued in June. Amy Erickson is the director of the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles and said the hope is to deter counterfeiters and protect the identities of Alaskans.
           “According to the Association of American Motor Vehicle Administrators Alaska’s license is the easiest to counterfeit in the nation because ours is currently very unsophisticated.”
           Erickson said the new design includes a number of added security features.
           “I can’t give you all of them because we don’t want to let everyone in on it but there is a ghost photograph of your photo which would be on the license – so two photos on the license. There’s a clear window in the shape of the state of Alaska and a fine line pattern that’s much like you’d see on a dollar bill.”
