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!

Krueger earned the prestigious Prince Philip Helicopter Rescue Award presented by the British Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators at their annual Trophies and Awards Banquet in London Oct. 29.

            A ceremony took place at noon Friday aboard the Coast Guard cutter "Alex Haley".

 All of the Crew Members of the Alex Haley will be awarded the Coast Guard's Arctic Service Medal for duty they completed this fall. In order for a unit to receive the distinction the ship must spend 21 consecutive days above the Arctic Circle. The Alex Haley spent 23 days carrying out maritime domain patrol North of Pt. Barrow to the polar ice edge in September and October. During that time they kept a record of fishing vessels, cruise ships and recreational boats in the area. The crew was especially interested in it's contact with recreational boats travelling the northwest passage including one from New York City. The Alex Haley returned to Kodiak once the sea ice started forming

The Alex Haley is a 282-foot medium endurance cutter It's named for the Coast Guard's first chief journalist, who later authored the book Roots. It can carry an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter and has a crew of 99.

All of whom will now wear the Arctic Service Medal: A cool award for being cold.

            Coming up on this week's show, seafood marketing money is cut, the pollock quota is down and so were salmon prices. But don't worry, it's not all depressing news. We had help this week from Coast Alaska's Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau, KUCB's Anne Hillman in Unalaska, KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham, and KBBI's Marcia Lynn in Homer.

            After years of legal struggles and lengthy court battles some members of Leisnoi are hoping for a fresh start for the native village corporation.

           In spite of being one of the largest land-holders on Kodiak, Leisnoi shareholders haven’t received corporate dividends for years. Some have expressed growing frustration with what they see as a lack of communication and accountability by the corporation board. Leisnoi keeps an office that sits empty in Anchorage and the headquarters is located in Arizona where some of the current board members live.

            Jeff Chester is a former Leisnoi director and a spokesperson for a recently formed ad hoc shareholders group.
