An EXTRA Talk of Alaska this week
It's getting closer and closer and schedules are getting tighter and tighter so this week the folks at APRN are adding an additional episode of Talk of Alaska so we can all be a little bit more knowledgeable when it's time to fill in the dots. The Governor makes his appearance Tuesday morning and the challenger, Bill Walker, makes his appearance Wednesday morning. Both live at 10am Tuesday and Wednesday this week (and both being repeated the same evening at 9pm on HD3)
 
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 Lions Club Silver Salmon Derby results are in, with two fish logging identical weights at the top of the leader board.

            Matt Talton was awarded the 750-dollars first place prize, and Friend received 500-dollars for second. Wells got 250-dollars for third.

            Wells also won one of the mystery weight prizes, with a 13-point-4 pound silver just a quarter-pound shy of the target weight of 13-point-65-pounds. Chris Lamb, Becky Lickfield, Jerry Stone and Ken Morrison also won 50-dollar mystery fish prizes.

            Derby Organizer Judi Kidder said 112 people bought tickets for the tourney this year.

           The silver salmon tournament ended on September 30th.

            Coming up on this week's show, more details on the Alaska Ranger's sinking; ASMI is looking at becoming Alaska salmon's MSC sponsor; and they're lifting boats in Kodiak. All that, and what do you think a sea cucumber tastes like? Also, Canada gets a lot of Yukon kings, feting Chuck Bundrant, and Deadliest Catch Florida? We had help this week from KMXT's Diana Gish in Kodiak, KDLG's Adam Kane in Dillingham, Deckboss Blogger Wesley Loy in Anchorage, and APRN's Libby Casey in Washington D.C.

            Overall voter turnout in Tuesday's Municipal Election was unofficially calculated at 27 percent. Just over 2,600 ballots were cast from a base of over 9,600 registered voters. So, just more than one-in-four of those eligible took the time to cast a vote.

            The lowest turnouts were in the Port Lions and Bells Flats precincts, where only 14 percent of registered voters turned out, which is about half the average for the borough. Larsen Bay had just a bit more, with 17 percent turnout.

            The Old Harbor and Kodiak Number Two precincts had 22 percent turnout, while Chiniak had 23.

            Kodiak Number One, at Fisherman's Hall, had 27 percent and Bayside had 29 percent turnout. The highest was in Ouzinkie, where about a third of the voters went to the polls.

            Several races are still too close to call. In the city, the vote whether to allow employees to discuss unionization is failing by just 17 votes, and in the race for a one-year council seat, Jon Whiddon has a slim lead over Mike Woodruff.

            In the borough, Jerrol Friend also has a slim lead over challenger Dave King for the assembly, and while the 76-million-dollar bond to remodel and expand the high school is leading, it could change, based on how the count of absentee and questioned ballots goes. That will be determined on Wednesday when both the city and borough canvass the elections and the final counts will be determined.

            The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officially designated 5,855 acres as critical habitat for southwest Alaska sea otters on Wednesday. The areas span from the end of the Aleutians to the Alaska Peninsula and mostly include near-shore areas that are less than 20 meters deep and kelp beds. U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokesperson Bruce Woods says the designation only affects federal activities in the area.

Airport Substation Breaker Causes Power Outage
Thursday, 08 October 2009

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            The Airport Substation continues to cause problems for Kodiak Electric customers out at the Coast Guard Base, Aviation Hill, Bells Flats and beyond.

            Another breaker failure at the substation plunged the customers into darkness at about 10 p.m. last night. Kodiak Electric says power was finally restored to all customers by about 1 this morning.

            The infrastructure at the Airport Substation is a regular source of frustration for residents beyond that point, as it trips off several times a year.
