Snap Judgement on KODK 90.7-FM

 

Home

 

Did you know that Snap Judgement airs on our new station, KODK 90.7-FM? This show focuses on the life and stories of our fellow Americans, much like this American life, but Snap has a way of finding and choosing stories that are a little more... taboo. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes terrifying, but always entertaining.

 

Check it out at 10am on Sunday mornings. KODK, a clear alternative.

           It’s a new year now, which means permanent fund dividend applications are available to Alaska residents looking to cash in on some of the state’s oil wealth. But the annual PFD is also an opportunity for Alaska’s non profits to collect some extra money each year.
           Pick. Click. Give. is a program that allows residents to donate a portion of their PFD to various participating non profit organizations throughout the state. There are more than a dozen non profits in Kodiak that participate in Pick.Click.Give. and last year Alaskans gave about $2.4 million to non profits statewide, with more than $42,000 going to organizations in Kodiak. Those looking to donate this year can simple click on the Pick.Click.Give. option when filling out their PFD applications and select an organization and amount they would like to contribute.

Participating Organizations:
The Kodiak Maritime Museum
Kodiak Arts Council
KMXT Kodiak Public Broadcasting Corporation
Kodiak Public Library Association

            The Kodiak Borough Assembly has decided not to provide extra funding to Discover Kodiak this year. The organization was requesting $18,000 from the assembly in addition to its annual $75,000 in borough funding. The money was to be put toward international marketing at trade shows across the globe.
            Discover Kodiak Director Chastity Starrett said the hope was to travel to Berlin, Chicago and Iceland, in partnership with the Alaska Tourism Industry Association, and promote tourism in Kodiak. Having encountered some assembly skepticism toward funding the full $18,000 during the assembly’s December work session, Starrett offered an alternative during Thursday’s meeting.
            “So tonight if you’re not willing to fund the $18,000 I’d like to make an additional request for $8,390 to attend ITB Berlin. This show is important so we’re reaching the consumers interested in us while Kodiak’s in the spotlight all over the globe and we just need to be there to provide them with the necessary resources for getting here.”
             Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said she was not supportive of the $18,000 amount but moved to amend that amount to the $8,390 Starrett suggested. 
             “I do think that there is some work that needs to be done internationally for marketing and I think that it would be a good start for them to do the Berlin show this coming year. I think in my conversations with Chastity she made it very clear it was the biggest and best opportunity and part of the reasoning there is because of the co-marketing that is being done with the state of Alaska who is providing the interpreter and that makes it make a lot more sense plus that really cuts down the cost for them to attend.”
             Austerman added that she thought there needs to be some sort of tracking for the work Discover Kodiak does internationally; to make sure they are getting something out of it.

            While the holidays are over for many folks in Kodiak, they’re also just beginning for some. Today is Russian Christmas, a holiday celebrated by the Russian Orthodox Church, which follows the Julian calendar. Alutiiq Museum Director Alisha Drabek said the holiday often spans multiple days, and is best known for the practice called starring.  
             “The caroling or starring that happens here in Kodiak and throughout Russian Orthodox faith is anywhere from three nights to several more, but here locally they practice a three day caroling celebration. So after church services on January 7, the parishioners gather after the evening church service and start at Father Innocent’s house, and sing songs, traditiaonl Alutiiq caroling songs, Russian Orthodox Church songs, usually around eight to nine songs with a small group of people.”

The lady bears were tournament champions last year, as well. Prior to Saturday’s game the girls beat Sitka 52-12 and West Valley 53-34. Those wins continue the lady bears’ 6-0 undefeated season.
            On the boys side Kodiak fell to Soldotna 52-38 in the final game of the weekend. That loss came after the bears breezed past Unalakleet 81-41 on Thursday and took home another win over Bristol Bay 89-67.

            The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be in town this week to hold public meetings about what to do with cattle on remote islands south of Kodiak. Chirikof and Wosnesenski islands have been uninhabited for years, unless you count the herds of cattle that have been roaming the combined 36,500 acres since the 1880s.
            The islands are part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and in December, the wildlife service announced plans to remove the cattle, which it said are damaging natural ecosystems and habitat through grazing.
            But not everyone thinks the cattle need to be removed. During Thursday’s Borough Assembly meeting Lorne White spoke on behalf of the Kodiak Farm Bureau in favor of keeping the cattle on both islands.
            “And we would like to request that the assembly either do something in the form of a resolution, or at least make a motion to support an old resolution that you had on Chirikof Island. The Chirikof Island cattle are being threatened again for removal by the federal government, Fish and Wildlife Service. In the past, Resolution 2002-18 was prepared by Assembymember Turner and the borough assembly took a position that recommended actually that there be a land trade in order to preserve that herd on Chirikof Island.”
             The Fish and Wildlife Service will hold an open house at the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center tomorrow at 4 p.m. to answer questions about the cattle and discuss different options regarding them. White said he hopes the assembly members attend that, and then take a position on the matter, preferably in favor of preserving those cattle herds. White said the cattle have a lot of historic and genetic reasons for preservation.
