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


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!

Pollock Seine Fishery Set
Monday, 07 April 2014

    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.

Course and Calendar Recommendations Emerge from Regents' Kodiak Meeting
Monday, 07 April 2014

    The University of Alaska Board of Regents met here in Kodiak last week, and agreed on two recommendations designed to help students who take classes from more than one campus at a time.
    One would create a common academic calendar for all campuses in the state, and the other would make math and English requirements the same across the system as well.
    The calendar will not go into effect until the 2015 school year, and the general education requirements the year after.
    Student Regent Courtney Enright said in a release that the calendar changes will help students, like herself, who take classes at multiple campuses at a time. In the past, she said, she’s had classes from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Southeast campuses in the same semester.
    The general education resolution would standardize class descriptions, numbers and titles.

Kulluk Grounding Report Released
Friday, 04 April 2014

    The U.S. Coast Guard yesterday released its report on Royal Dutch Shell’s arctic drilling efforts in 2012, which led to the grounding of the mobile drilling rig Kulluk on New Year’s Eve.
    The 152-page report was released 10-months after a hearing in Anchorage in the aftermath of the grounding. The investigation was done by Commander Joshua McTaggart of the Coast Guard’s national investigations center.
    The report states that in an effort to avoid state property taxes, Shell did indeed set sail from Dutch Harbor in late December so to be out of Alaska waters on January 1st, when the taxes would have been levied. The report also criticizes Shell for “numerous deficiencies” in planning the voyage, having an inadequate towing plan, and the “questionable decision” to sail from Dutch Harbor to Seattle in December in the face of worsening weather.
    The critical report did not erode arctic drilling support among Alaska’s U.S. senators Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski.
    In a written statement Begich said he remains a “strong supporter” of reasonable arctic resource development. He said the Coast Guard report and recommendations gives him greater confidence about resource extraction in the arctic.
    Murkowski agreed that the recommendations from the Coast Guard will improve the safety of maritime activities during energy resource development in the arctic.
    Environmental watchdogs were not as upbeat. Michael Levine is the Pacific senior counsel for Oceana in Juneau.
    “This Coast Guard report is thorough, and it points to substantial and important problems, not only with the way Shell operated, but with the manner in which the government allowed them to do so.”
    He said more oversight of corporations and the government is needed:
    “We need two fundamental things. First, government stewardship, and second, corporate accountability. Good corporate governance should lead to good decisions about whether to undertake risky activities like these that Shell proposes. And good government stewardship should lead to decisions that are in the interest of Alaskans and all Americans about whether and under what conditions to allow them.”
    The mobile drill rig Kulluk, a nearly spherical vessel close to 300-feet across, broke free from its tow line in high seas and went aground on Sitkalidak Island on December 31st, 2012. There were no injuries during the incident and little environmental impact. Damage to the Kulluk, while extensive did not prevent its tow back to Unalaska during calmer weather after it had been recovered and inspected.

    Kodiak lost a longtime community leader on Wednesday. Robert “Bob” Hatcher died of cancer. He was 87.
    Mr. Hatcher originally came to Kodiak during World War II. During patriotic holidays, or during visits to classrooms to speak to children, he enjoyed wearing his U.S. Army uniform – which still fit him perfectly over 60 years after the war.
    He served on the Kodiak Electric Association board of directors for over 30 years, during a time when renewable energy became a focus of the member-owned co-op. He was also an active member of the Pioneers of Alaska Kodiak Igloo, the Rotary Club and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
    Mr. Hatcher did not let his long battle with cancer slow him down too much. An avid dancer, he was out into the wee hours dancing just this last New Years Eve.

Former Medical Examiner Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 03 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A former state medical examiner says the two men killed in 2012 at the Coast Guard's Kodiak Island Communication Station each suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
    Dr. Meredith Lann testified Thursday in the trial of 62-year-old James Wells, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Petty Officer James Hopkins and retired Chief Petty Officer Richard Belisle.
    Lann testified that Hopkins had been shot twice, and that Belisle was shot three times.
    Out of respect for family and friends of the victims, KMXT will not publish the graphic details from Lann's testimony, though they can be found elsewhere online.
