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

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!

Making Kodiak Women Even More Outdoorsy

            Kodiak women had a chance this past weekend to learn outdoor skills from foraging for wild edibles to how to read a map. Workshops on outdoor skills were taught to more than 50 women by local outdoor specialists as part of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's program titled "Becoming an Outdoors Woman."

            The program is intended to teach women who may not have had a chance to learn the skills when they were young,  so that they in turn, can then teach their children what many people see as essentials in Alaska. Take fishing, for one. Or how to preserve and cook fresh-caught meat and seafood for another.

Depending on what they signed up for women learned how to hunt, use a gun, fish with a rod and reel, or fly fish. Other offerings included how to shoot with a bow and arrow and how to safely operate a  4-wheeler. Survival in the wild and safety in bear country were among the Alaska oriented skills taught during the two-day event.

            There will be a period of almost six weeks this winter when Kodiak will not get any ferry service. The ferry Tustumena will be off-line for almost two months and the Kennicott will be needed elsewhere for much of that time.

            The Tusty's last visit before the maintenance will be Saturday, October 16th. It will return on Saturday, December 11th. The Kennicott will serve the Kodiak-Homer run until Tuesday, November 2nd. Then there will be no ferry service until December 11th.

            Operations manager for the Alaska Marine Highway System, Chuck Van Kirk in Ketchikan, explains.

            The ferry schedule is available here .

            It's been a rough couple months at the Kodiak Animal Shelter as staff and volunteers juggled kittens, kittens-and more kittens.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall reports that the deluge of cats has subsided somewhat, but there are concerns about what a local spike in the cat population could mean in the future.

pdf High School Football Schedule 57.31 Kb

            The Kodiak High School Bears football team has been practicing for a week now, and will kick off the 2010 campaign Saturday on the road against the Eielson Ravens. The eight-game season has the Bears on the road half the time, but never two weekends in a row.

            Kodiak's home opener is week two against the team's arch rivals, the Soldotna Stars, who have stymied Kodiak's championship dreams three of the last four years. Then it's back on the road to play the Wasilla Warriors, and then home for two in a row in weeks four and five.

            Kodiak hosts the Barrow Whalers on their first visit to the Rock. The Bears have beaten Barrow twice in the schools' histories - including one playoff game in a snow storm on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. The Whalers will be followed by the Homer Mariners, and then it's back on the road to face the defending small school state champs, the Kenai Kardinals. One more game at home against Houston and then Kodiak wraps up the regular season on the road against the Skyview Panthers.

100730.spillmap.jpg            It's been two weeks since BP says it capped the well spilling deep beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

            A person might like to breath of sigh of relief-but far too many Alaskans remember the aftermath of the Exxon Valdez Spill and know the future holds a lot of uncertainty and heartache for Gulf of Mexico residents.

            Kodiak's Jane Eisemann was actively fishing the year of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Now she's a member of the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens' Advisory Council. The RCAC was created after the Exxon spill to promote safe operation of the Valdez terminal-and tankers carrying oil from the terminal.

            If you'd like to get a better perspective of the extent of the Gulf spill, there is a website to help you visualize the spread of oil. It's called If It Was My Home and allows you to super-imposing the Gulf spill over any area you choose. For instance, type in 99615 and it will show the size and shape of the spill superimposed over Kodiak Island and surrounding areas of Alaska.. The tool is located here
