Throwback Thursday Contest

***THROWBACK THURSDAY CONTEST***

Send us your best throwback photos! On the day of our fund drive, October 30, we'll post an album of all throwback photos we've received and the photo with the most "likes" on Facebook will win a special KMXT/KODK prize.

A throwback is considered a photo taken before today. So, you could send us a picture from October 20, 2014 and it will still apply! But, really, the older the better. Email your entries to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or post them on our facebook page. We'll gather them into an album for October 30. Good luck!

 

 
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!

Judge Dismisses Indictment in Cavaness Killing
Tuesday, 22 June 2010

            A state Superior Court judge has dismissed a second-degree murder indictment against a Kodiak man.

            Judge Fred Torrisi dismissed the indictment against Chawn D. Summerall on June 1st, and then denied the prosecution's motion to reconsider on June 9th. The state has until the end of the month to inform the court if it plans to seek re-indictment.

            Summerall is accused of beating Darrell Cavaness into unconsciousness on the night of January 22, 2008, in a home on Natalia Street. Cavaness died in an Anchorage hospital a week later due to severe head injuries. Summerall was indicted by a Kodiak Grand Jury in June 2009.

            In his decision, Torrisi said that the prosecution's reliance on hearsay evidence and the fact that the grand jury was not informed that Summerall was also struck with the piece of wood that is believed to be the murder weapon, requires dismissal of the indictment.

kodiak_windmills.jpg            Though only in operation about one year, Kodiak's wind turbines are already making a difference in local electric bills.

            The three high-tech windmills atop Pillar Mountain are visible from many spots around town and on the roads out of town. They were installed last July.

            Kodiak Electric Association's Jennifer Richcreek says the wind turbines have given consumers a break on their monthly bills in the form of lower "Cost of Power Adjustment" or COPA.

Unemployment Rate Drops in May
Monday, 21 June 2010

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

            The jobless rate in the Kodiak Island Borough dropped slightly between May and April.

April's local unemployment rate was 7.1 percent. In May it was 6.9.  That pretty much matches the situation at this time last year, when the May jobless rate was 7.0 percent.

            These percentages come from the state labor department and are what is called "not seasonally adjusted." That means they don't adjust for the normal ebb and flow of seasonal jobs, but do compare the number of people out of work or looking for work as a percentage of the total workforce. Kodiak's total civilian workforce in May was 6,365. 

In terms of real people Kodiak's unemployment rate translates into 440 people who were looking for work in May compared to 477 in April. While that's a drop in 37 people in a month's time it's important to note that the official definition of unemployed may not match what most people think of as "the unemployed."
