HD Back on the Air
The boys in engineering have been hard at work and successfully puzzled out what happened to our HD signal. (Something to do with old equipment being replaced). The important thing is that HD 1, 2, and 3 are back on the air with an even better signal than before. Thanks Joe and Willy!
 
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!

            A NOAA fisheries observer is being punished for sexually harassing and creating a hostile work environment for another observer. Benjamin Lewis Michlig worked for Saltwater Incorporated and Alaskan Observers Incorporated and is originally from Wisconsin.

            He admitted to harassing another observer while living in a bunkhouse in Kodiak in September, 2008.

            The NOAA Office of Law Enforcement's Alaska Division issued Michlig a 10,000-dollar fine with 9,000 suspended. He won't have to pay the suspended amount if, after five years he has committed no similar offenses. He also is prohibited from working as an observer anywhere in the country for the next 10 years.

            In a written statement, NOAA Special Agent Frank Bonadonna said it was important that the entire commercial fishing industry understand that harassment of fisheries observers will be punished, whether it's done by a vessel captain, crewman or another observer.

            Federal fisheries observers are responsible for collecting real-time catch and bycatch data that is used to help manage fisheries in federal waters.

Alutiiq Mask Maker Awarded Artist Grant
Thursday, 17 December 2009

           An artist who hails from Kodiak has received an award from the United States Artist Fellows program. Alutiiq mask maker Perry Eaton was selected to receive a grant for 50,000 dollars for his work in the craft. Eaton has been focused on the traditional art form since 2000. He was one of the artists who travelled to Russia with the Autiiq Museum to see the original masks on display there. He said he then became "artistically fixated" on creating Alutiiq masks after seeing pictures of them taken by Helen Simeonoff during her visit to the Chateau-Musee in France. Eaton said he was motivated by his love for the masks. He credits artists such as Jacob Simeonoff for paving the way for other Alutiiq mask makers.

            In comments he wrote following his selection for the honor, Eaton said that he's inspired by all Alaska Native culture and that he's glad the cultures are becoming more widely valued. He mentioned groups in Kodiak that he says are contributing to the increased interest and appreciation of Alutiiq culture such as the Alutiiq Museum, the Kodiak Area Native Association, the dance groups, all of the tribal and village corporations, as well as the school district.

            Cell phone service for AT & T customers around Alaska has been restored after being down for several hours yesterday (Wednesday).

            Colleen Smith with AT & T's PR firm Fleishman Hillard says a commercial power outage caused a hardware issue affecting 2-G service in parts of Alaska. She didn't say where the power outage occurred, what type of hardware was affected, or how long it took to fix. The interruption did not affect AT & T's 3G service, which is available only in Anchorage.
