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


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!

Unalaska Delta Western Unionization Ceretified
Friday, 02 May 2014

Annie Ropeik/KUCB
    It’s official: Delta Western fuel supply workers in Unalaska are unionized. The National Labor Relations Board certified the workers’ vote to join the Inland Boatmen’s Union last week, according to an IBU statement.
    The workers had voted by an eight to 15 margin to join the union in early April. An NLRB representative oversaw the election.
    The next step will be to negotiate a contract for the workers. The IBU will head up that process.
    The road to unionizing began in February, when Delta Western workers walked off the job in
protest of alleged workplace mistreatment. They went on strike again in March and filed a federal complaint with the NLRB, saying their managers were using illegal methods to punish them for striking and to keep them from organizing.
    The group petitioned to join the IBU soon after. They’re now the only unionized Delta Western terminal in Alaska.

Coming up this week, Togiak herring season is open, but there’s something less than a mad rush to get nets in the water; winter king trolling has wrapped up in Southeast, and the possibility of a herring transplant. We had help from KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KCAW’s Robert Woolsey and Emily Foreman in Sitka, and KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg.

Logging Concerns Linger, Prompt Informal Meeting

           This weekend a group of people are trying to rekindle a discussion about land use and logging in Kodiak.
           It’s been about six months since dozens of Chiniak residents packed the borough assembly chambers to oppose a proposed land sale between the Kodiak Island Borough and A-1 Timber Consultants, Inc.
           The 800 acres of borough land that was up for consideration was estimated to bring $2 million of revenue to the borough, but after heated public comments regarding current logging practices in Chiniak were expressed, the idea was taken off the table and no formal motions were ever made by assembly members to pursue the matter further.
            While that land sale has seemingly died, the animosity toward logging expressed by community members during the October meeting is still alive and well.  That’s why some community members are holding an informal meeting to discuss the matter this weekend.
            Bonny McWethy helped organize the event.
            “It came about because people were concerned about the logging and the roads in Chiniak.”
            She said it will be pretty informal with a few facilitators to help direct the converstaion. Overall the goal is to give everyone a chance to voice their opinions on the matter.  
            “We’re aware this is a very controversial issue and there’s a lot to it. It’s very complicated and we would like to invite everyone to come to the meeting. We want to hear all sides, we don’t want to be blind to anything, blind to anyone’s needs.”
            The meeting will be this Saturday at 6 p.m. at Fisherman’s Hall.

           This Saturday is community clean up day here in Kodiak. Joyce Gregory is with the Kodiak Lions Club and said it’s an opportunity for people to spruce up different areas – sort of an island-wide spring cleaning, if you will.
            She said free clean up bags will be provided at the high school parking lot Saturday morning.  
            “Everybody meets there at 9 a.m. and we have a large borough map and everybody kind of tells the area that they’d like to go clean up, usually around their own home. There are some organizations that have specific areas that they clean up every year, like up on Pillar Mountain or white sands beach or whatever. And then they go out and clean it up and leave their bags alongside the road.”
            Summer Wood is the community relations director for the Chamber of Commerce and said different organizations will be picking up bags alongside the road, but there are some changes to how that will be done this year. 
            “They can leave them on the side of the road, but no roadside junk. They can leave their trash bags on the side of the road and we have guys we call swampers – Alaska Waste, Threshold, Kodiak Lawn Care and Jay Brant Construction – they go out and will pick up these bags and then take them to the dump.”
             In the past large junk items were picked up, but this year Wood said those won’t be able to be picked up and will be left on the side of the road.

Begich Wants Solutions to Keep Bear Valley Open

    It turns out Kodiak’s Bear Valley Golf Course isn’t the only military-owned course that is facing closure in the immediate or near future. Anchorage’s Eagleglen, considered one of the nicest in the state, will not open this year, according to Lieutenant General Russell Handy, the commander of the 11th Air Force at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
    In an announcement yesterday, Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich said they understood that federal budget cuts are forcing the course closure at Eagleglen and others around the country, but expressed disappointment that community-based solutions were not given a chance to work in Anchorage. Community leaders there, as well as non-profit organizations, business representatives and golf enthusiasts in general have met over the past three months to brainstorm solutions to keep the course open, but General Handy said only steeply increased greens fees would keep Eagleglen open. Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson also operates two courses at Moose Run.
    Joe Bower, the Moral-Welfare-Recreation director at Coast Guard Base Kodiak, said earlier this month that the base commander was dedicated to closing Bear Valley after this summer’s season.
    Begich said he is hoping the numbers in Kodiak could add up to keeping Bear Valley open.
    “The question is, what is the deficit they are claiming? If it’s low, I think we could probably work something out with the community, and we should try.”
    Begich says keeping Bear Valley open would serve to bring Coast Guardsmen and their families closer with Kodiak’s civilian population.
    Golf courses on military bases have closed in Florida, Nebraska and Kansas in recent years.
