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!

           Kodiak is in the running for “Best U.S. Island.” The online competition is hosted by USA Today Travel and pins Alaska’s Emerald Isle against 19 other islands in the U.S.
           Kodiak is the only island featured from the 49th state and has some stiff competition with places like Kauai, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico making the top 20 list.
           That top 20 list was chosen by panel of travel experts from USA Today. They based their selections on criteria like beauty, accessibility, variety of terrain, things to do, wildlife, local culture and popularity. Folks can vote for their favorite U.S. Island until June 2. The winners will be revealed on June 4.

           May is ALS Awareness Month in the United States and one woman is taking it upon herself to educate people about the disease here in Kodiak.
           ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that limits the brain’s ability to control muscles, often times leading to complete movement loss in different parts of the body. 
           “And there is no cause, there is no cure, or treatment.”
           That’s 34-year Kodiak resident Sarah Thayer, who has made it her goal to inform people about the disease, which affects approximately 5,600 in the U.S. each year. Thayer said she became aware of ALS when her own body started exhibiting signs and symptoms of muscular failure.
           “2005 I noticed something weird with my walking, my right leg.”
           Over the course of two years, the weakness in her right leg progressed and she eventually saw a neurologist. He wasn’t sure what the cause could be and a series of referrals to other doctors ultimately led Thayer to an ALS specialist at a hospital in Boston.
           “And I’ve seen him since 2010. He hasn’t given me a diagnosis of ALS, but it’s always been a temporary diagnosis, and what is listed in the three that he has given me for choices, you could say, is PLS – primary lateral sclerosis, which is either the same or a lot like upper motor neuron predominant ALS.”
           While Thayer hasn’t been officially diagnosed with ALS, she said her trials in learning about her own condition led to a greater awareness of the disease.
             “And the monster that it is.”

           Folks will have a chance to test their strength in an unusual way this weekend, and help out a local cause at the same time. Dan Canavan is the volunteer community director for Special Olympics here in Kodiak and said people can form eight-member teams to try and pull a fire truck.
           “Actually it will be a nine-member team because one of the requirements is of course to recruit or have me help them find them an athlete to participate as one of the team members.”
            The teams will need to raise at least $200, and that can be done through sponsors or pledges. The money will go toward Special Olympics, specifically helping with the Torch Run on May 17th.
            Jason Waggoner is a volunteer at Bayside Fire Department and said fire truck won’t be full of water, but it should still pose a sizable challenge.
           “The one we’re planning on pulling is Squad 10, which is our medical truck. It doesn’t have water in it, but even without water in it, it still weighs 40,000 pounds.”
