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!

            The Kodiak Island Borough assembly is exploring ways to raise money. Once the borough sells bonds to pay for the new high school, more revenue must be generated in order to pay off that debt. At last night's work session, assembly members discussed different strategies.

            Some of the ideas under discussion include a mill levy increase, sales tax and a tax on alcohol and tobacco. Borough Manager Rick Gifford compiled some projected figures for the various revenue sources.

            Kodiak State Airport's primary crosswind runway is open again, and another runway should reopen soon, after getting emergency repairs. Runway 18-36, which runs north-south, was closed over three weeks ago because the seams in the asphalt had deteriorated to the point where it was unsafe for planes to take off and land. The state had to bring in specialized equipment to do the repairs on the seams, and according to Department of Transportation spokesman Rick Feller in Anchorage, the process went smoothly and was done quickly.

pdf Salmon Catch June_9

            The first catch numbers for the just-opened Kodiak salmon season were released this (Thursday) morning by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and nearly 7,000 fish -mostly sockeye - were hauled in on the first day.

            The Olga, Moser and Alitak Bay District reported a catch of 3,260 red salmon, while the Karluk, Northwest Kodiak and Southwest Afognak District reports 3,011 sockeye, plus 22 king salmon, 124 chum and one lonely humpy.

            The Cape Alitak and Humpy-Deadman District had a catch of 432 sockeye, while the Southeast Afognak and Raspberry District added 40.

            The total sockeye catch was 6,743, with 127 chum, 22 kings and that one pink, for a total catch on day one of 6,893 fish. 

            Meanwhile, escapement through Wednesday has been a mixed bag. According to Fish and Game numbers, the Karluk looks to be heading for another poor season, with sockeye down slightly from last year through June 9. With 5,458 reds being counted at the weir, it's down about 15-hundred from this time last year. While it's above 2008, it's still a small percentage compared to this time in the years from 2001 to 2005, where between 111,000 and 278,000 reds had escaped.

            Ayakulik red escapement is just over 37,000; Litnik is just over 23,000; Upper Station is almost 15,000 and the Chignik River is nearly 13,000. The Buskin River sockeye escapement is just over 1,500.

           Coming up this week, Area M seiners stand down to avoid AYK chums; more on the MSC certification of trawl-caught flatfish, and sniffing fish for a living. All that and the man who nurtured baby fish in Sitka for 30 years is retiring. We had help this week from KUCB's Alexandra Gutierrez in Unalaska, KDLG's Jacob Resneck in Dillingham, and KCAW's Robert Woolsey in Sitka.
