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!

            There is finally some good news for sport fishermen in Kodiak in the midst of an otherwise dismal salmon season. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced it is doubling the sockeye salmon bag and possession limit in the Saltery Cove drainage.

            According to Fish and Game, the new limits have increased to 10 per day and 10 in possession. The escapement goal for Saltery Cove is 15-thousand to 30-thousand sockeye salmon. Donn Tracy of Fish and Game said that as of Tuesday the weir count was up to about 13-thousand.

            The previous bag and possession limits for Saltery Cove were five sockeye salmon per day and five in possession. The new limits went into effect this (Thursday) morning at 12:01 a.m.

Former Kodiak Rep. LeDoux Seeking Anchorage House Seat

            Former Kodiak State House Representative Gabrielle LeDoux has announced her intention to seek a return to state office next year, BUT it won't be from Kodiak. LeDoux said by phone Tuesday that she has moved to Anchorage. 

            LeDoux did not seek re-election to the House District 36 seat last year, because she ran against Don Young in the Republican U.S. House Primary.

            Her new House District is 19, the Muldoon area of Northeast Anchorage. LeDoux said it reminds her a lot of Kodiak.

            LeDoux said her friends and former constituents in Kodiak will still be on her mind if she wins election to the legislature next year.

            LeDoux has filed as a Republican in her letter of intent with the Alaska Public Offices Commission. Democrat Pete Peterson, who currently represents District 19, has filed a letter of intent to seek re-election. He's held that seat since last year, when he defeated incumbent Republican Bob Roses by 235 votes.

            Muldoon is a district that favored - by a few hundred votes each - both Mark Begich over Ted Stevens and Ethan Berkowitz over Don Young in last year's general election. In last year's Republican Primary Election, LeDoux received 171 votes against Young and Sean Parnell.

            Warm temperatures and abundant sunshine have provided ample opportunity for fun and recreation for many in Alaska this summer. Dry weather conditions have also caused forest fires in some parts of the state. For Kodiak Electric Association, the lack of rain and warm temperatures are causing a different type of concern. KMXT's Erik Wander has more.

            Some Alaska Native leaders are converging in Washington in advance of a Senate subcommittee meeting on government contracting. The focus on the hearing is the Small Business Administration's 8(a) business development program; specifically, the way Native Corporation contracts are awarded.

            Contracts to Alaska Native corporations have grown from 508 million-dollars in 2000 to 5.2 billion dollars last year according to figures released by the Senate Subcommittee on Contracting Oversight. That's the subcommittee that's conducting a hearing on Thursday to look into the way contracts are awarded to Alaska Native Corporations. Based on federal law Native corporations are eligible for no-bid federal contracts of any size. Other businesses under the small business program have a 5.5 million-dollar cap on contracts.

KMXT's Diana Gish spoke with Casey Sullivan, who is part of a new coalition called "Native Eight (a) Works," that represents a diverse group of Alaska Native corporations, Native American tribes, Hawaiian Native organizations as well as other organizations and businesses. The group was formed earlier this week to counter a growing criticism and increase understanding of the value of awarding federal contracts to native groups.
