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 City Council approved, on a five-to-zero vote, its contributions to area nonprofit organizations at its meeting last week. Councilman Tom Walters said the city and its residents appreciate the work that nonprofits do for the community.

            The Kodiak Humane Society, which operates the animal shelter here, received the largest single cash donation, in the amount of 96-thousand dollars. The Kodiak Island Convention and Visitors Bureau received 85-thousand dollars in cash, and a waiver of 12-thousand in rent at the Pier One ferry terminal building. Also receiving an in-kind donation of rent in that building is the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, in the amount of 21-thousand dollars. The Chamber also received 43-thousand dollars for its economic development program. Several programs received 10-thousand dollar grants, including the Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center, the Senior Citizens of Kodiak and the Brother Francis Shelter, which also received 34-thousand dollars of non-cash support for water and sewer and land payments. 

            Another of the major beneficiaries of the city's largess is the Kodiak Historical Society, which operates the Baranof (b'RON-off) Museum in the city-owned Erskine House. It received 60-thousand dollars in operations funds and 17-thousand dollars as in-kind donation of utilities.

            By way of disclaimer, we should mention that Kodiak Public Broadcasting received 10-thousand dollars in grant funds this year from the city, as well as nearly 1,000-dollars in in-kind donations for water and sewer services.

            The School Board held its regular meeting Monday (last) night. The board heard two reports, both from the district's Director of Operations, Scott Williams. Williams gave an update on the High School bond project as well as a report on summer maintenance projects district-wide.

            Included in that list was an update on the old and new swimming pools. Some eyebrows were raised when Williams reported a leak in the roof above the pool. That is, until he clarified which pool roof had a leak.

            The Kodiak City Council maintained its hard line last week against the State of Alaska in the battle over housing prisoners. Last month the council voted to accept one last contract with the state to operate a jail here. After that, the care and feeding of prisoners will no longer be the city's problem - unless the state pony's up millions of dollars to complete the build-out of the jail portion of the new Kodiak Police Station.

            It was a big turn-out for Kodiak's Relay for Life on Friday evening. By Saturday the enthusiasm for the American Cancer Society fundraiser was still there, though it was joined by plenty of rain and wind. By mid-afternoon relay officials decided to move the closing auction and ceremony to another date. At that point most of the teams reluctantly called it a day. Most of the teams, but not all. KMXT'S Diana Gish was at the track at Baronoff park during the final half-hour of the relay and this is what she found.
