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!

    The Alaska Senate has released its version of the Fiscal Year 2015 Capital Budget, and it includes millions of dollars more for Kodiak and House District 35 projects. The big ticket items include:
•    $3-million for the next phase of water and sewer replacements in Aleutian Homes and $2.6-million for replacement of the Kenai Pump House;
•    $2.4-million for deferred maintenance to the Kodiak Launch Complex;
•    $15-million from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council money for land acquisition on Afognak Island;
•    $10-million in federal funds are budgeted to pass-through the state for Kodiak and Yakutat airport improvements; and,
•    $400,000 for renovations to the Kodiak Campus of the University of Alaska.
    The legislature is schedule to wrap up in less than two weeks, and the Senate’s budget must be reconciled with the State House version before then, so specific items in the capital budget could change.

New Plaque Commemorates '64 Earthquake, Tsunami Vicitims
Monday, 07 April 2014

plaque_full.jpgA new plaque down at the spit honors those who died during the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake and Tsuanmi. In honor of the 50th anniversary of those events, the Kodiak Lions Club donated plaque, which is mounted on a rock from the granite quarry on Afognak Island. During those tragic events more than half a century ago the village of Afognak was decimated and many people lost their lives. The surviving villagers were relocated to what is now known as Port Lions, with the help of the United States government and the village’s namesake, the Lions Club. Brianna Gibbs/Photo

Doc Myers is a past president and current member of Kodiak Lions Club and said records show that 22 people from around the archipelago died during the events, which took place 50 years ago last month.

    The celebration of life service for Kodiak elder Robert “Bob” Hatcher will be held tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center at 4 p.m.
    A potluck repast will follow at the Kodiak Elks Club.
    Terrie Johnson, who is organizing the repast, let KMXT know that anyone who would like to bring a dish to share with Mr. Hatcher’s family and friends can simply do so, or give her a call with any questions.
    She also said the parking lot at the Elks will be available all afternoon, meaning folks can park there, drop off a potluck dish, and then walk to the service at the convention center.
    Mr. Hatcher passed away last Wednesday morning at the age of 87, after a long battle with cancer.

Another Record for Pick.Click.Give Donations
Monday, 07 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    The amount Alaskans give to charity each year through the PFD donation program “Pick Click Give,” continues to grow. Final figures were released by the organization last week after the Permanent Fund Dividend deadline passed last Monday, and Alaskans donated nearly $2.8-million, up $326,000, or 13-percent, from last year.
    The announcement showed average individual giving also increased from $94 last year to $104 this year. Still, a tiny fraction of Alaskans chose to give through Pick Click Give, amounting to less than 5-percent of those who filed for a PFD online.
    Pick Click Give administrators were upbeat nonetheless, noting that both the individual average and total figures were records for the six-year-old program. They say several factors may have contributed to the higher giving levels, including the expectation of a larger dividend this year, a new advertising campaign and a “Double Your Dividend” sweepstakes that will award a cash prize to 10 Alaskans who give through the program.
    In Kodiak, the Humane Society – long a favorite cause through Pick Click Give – was once again by far the biggest benefactor this year, receiving $8,250 in gifts. The Kodiak Public Library Association, Kodiak Public Broadcasting, and the Alutiiq Museum each received about $4,000. The Arts Council and Maritime Museum were in the $3,000 range, with the Senior Center getting about $2,000 and the relatively new Kodiak Community Foundation receiving just under $1,000.
    Overall, 512 organizations in 50 communities around the state received donations, with Bean’s Café in Anchorage on top with $143,225. Alaska Public Media, the parent company of APRN, which broadcasts its contribution appeals statewide over local public radio stations, was close behind, receiving $125,525.
    Here is the full Pick Click Give breakdown.

Pollock Seine Fishery Set
Monday, 07 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    Responding to direction from the Board of Fisheries, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has moved forward with a new pollock test fishery in Kodiak waters, using seine gear.
    At January’s Fish Board meeting here in Kodiak, board members and fishermen expressed interest in a walleye pollock test fishery with seine gear. In an announcement last week, the Kodiak Area Office of Fish and Game announced the test fishery will be conducted prior to June 9th. Given that time frame, interested fishermen need to register with the department by 5 p.m. Friday.
    Starting next Monday, the Department will start contacting registered vessel operators to coordinate the test fishing activities.
    The announcement adds that operators must obtain a Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission miscellaneous finfish permit card for purse seine gear. Contact the groundfish management biologists at Fish and Game in Kodiak for more information.
