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!

            Contrary to recent reports that a University of Alaska Fairbanks' School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences research vessel will be homeported in Seward, Kodiak Island Borough officials say the borough may still be in the running to attract the vessel to Kodiak. 

            Last week, it was reported that the new, 242-foot research vessel, to be funded by federal economic stimulus money, would be operated by the University out of Seward. However, borough assemblywoman Pat Branson said that after a bit of research on the part of Borough Manager Rick Gifford and Mayor Jerome Selby, hope remained for Kodiak to lure the vessel here.

            Federal stimulus money eased the budgetary woes that come with lower crude oil prices, but Governor Sarah Palin's rejection of 28-million dollars for energy assistance and weatherization, was a move Austerman didn't agree with.
