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!

Citations Coming to Code Enforcement

           The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved allowing citations to be issued to code violators within the borough.
           During last night’s regular meeting the assembly amended borough code to allow for the citations to be issued on certain aspects of borough code – things like littering, animal control and fireworks, among others.
           Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said those are the things the borough gets the most complaints about, and the citation process will allow the borough to more effectively handle those situations. Current borough code violations are handled on a complaint-based system, and typically the code enforcer simply educates violators on the matter. Now, violators can be cited and fined, much like what occurs when people receive speeding tickets. Cassidy said the borough worked with the court system on drafting the citation procedure and feels it is the next step in making sure folks are following the law.

Borough Residents Will Decided on School Bond Issue

    On the municipal election ballot Tuesday will be a question seeking the public’s approval of a $10-million bond package to do maintenance projects in Kodiak Island Borough Schools. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy was on Talk of the Rock this week to explain the bond and its implications.
    “So there’s underground storage tanks, there is flooring replacement. That could be tile that’s worn out or carpeting that’s stretched and creates a tripping hazard,” Cassidy said. “HVAC controls – that has to do with heating and cooling a building, pretty critical when they’re paying six bucks a gallon for diesel oil. So controls which actually are able to monitor the building by computer to tell you when heat needs to be applied and doesn’t need to be applied. Cafeteria roof at East Elementary school, maintenance on a roof. Fire alarm replacement and replacement of boilers.”    Borough Finance Director Karl Short said this was probably the best time to float a bond for school facilities work, and not just because the interest rates are extremely low:
    “You know we need to keep up with our infrastructure, or it may become more expensive as maintenance costs go up through obsolescence,” Short said. “And right now with the state reimbursement at 70 percent at the high school and new school construction, it is a way for our citizens to save money by doing the work now and not putting it off to when we don’t get that state reimbursement.”
    That reimbursement will be 70-percent from the State of Alaska, Cassidy said, just like the Kodiak High School addition project:
    “We’re getting an $80-million school for $20-million dollars. So at least from a cost stand point it certainly is beneficial,” Cassidy said. “But again it goes back to that duty of the state of Alaska to educate students and provide facilities where kids can have a safe working environment.”
    Cassidy said the maintenance projects the money is for will have to be done one way or another, and if it’s not through the bond process, the borough will have to foot the entire cost of the work. Whether to issue the bonds will be a question on the municipal election ballot before borough citizens on Tuesday.
    You can hear more about the bond issue here at KMXT.org, where Tuesday’s Talk of the Rock is posted.

Coming up this week, the pollock abundance is up in the Bering Sea, dive fisheries are starting up in Southeast, and the feds are looking for your help in determining the economic value of fisheries in Southwest. All that, and a bunch of halibut flew from Kodiak to Kotzebue, and boy are their flippers tired, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg and KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.

          It’s no question that Alutiiq language learning has grown in recent years, but tonight folks will have an opportunity to hear more about that process and what techniques are being used to revitalize it. As part of the Alutiiq Museum’s fall lecture series, local resident Candace Branson will present her master’s project through the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Branson is the education coordinator at Sun’aq and Alutiiq Language educator. She has been working with UAF’s Alaska Native Education Computer Assisted Language Learning grant to study different ways languages like Alutiiq can be taught. 
             “And my project will be to create a unit to teach Alutiiq language through storytelling. So we’re using a model that has been used in other communities and with other languages like Spanish and French and pulling a traditional Alutiiq story and translating it into Alutiiq – because many of them were documented very early on in the 1800 and 1900s in English by explorers and teachers and people who came to Kodiak out of that interest, but ended up collecting stories.”

           Alaska’s congressional candidates descended on Kodiak last night for a debate that pitted candidates running for both the House and Senate against their opponents on a number of fisheries-related issues.
    First to take the stage at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium were the candidates for U.S. Senate. Incumbent Senator Mark Begich squared off with Republican candidate Dan Sullivan, answering questions from a media panel, audience members and each other.
