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

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!

SeaShare Sending 13,000 lbs. of Kodiak Halibut to Kotzebue

    Wednesday, about 15 pallets of frozen halibut will be winging their way north from Kodiak, to be distributed to communities around Kotzebue.
    As Sea Share’s Jim Harmon tells us, the halibut is bycatch from the Kodiak trawl fleet.
    “These are halibut that were caught in the Gulf of Alaska while trawl fishermen fished for pollock and other ground fish. They’re called ‘incidental catch.’ They’re not allowed to sell those fish, they’re only allowed to sell the targeted species. So the only thing they can do with them is donate them to Sea Share, or throw them overboard.”
    The 13,000 pounds of halibut were brought back to Kodiak and processed by local canneries and packed into the 50-pound boxes.
    “The processors in Kodiak – there’s seven of them that participate with Sea Share – they work these fish in various ways. The fish that are going up to Kotzebue, are headed and gutted, and then they’re sleeved and then they’re packed in 50-pound boxes. Some of the halibut is also steak and some are filleted, and those generally go to the food bank in Kodiak or the shelters there.”
    Also donated is the moving of all that halibut by Carlile Transportation out to Air Station Kodiak, where the Coast Guard will takeover and fly them to Kotzebue on an HC-130 Hercules.
    Once in that far north city, the halibut will be distributed in town and surrounding villages by the NANA Regional Corporation.
    Sea Share, based in Seattle, has provided 200-million meals over the past 20 years across the nation.

Akutan, False Pass Without VPSO
Tuesday, 30 September 2014

Lauren Rosenthal/KUCB
    As of today, two Aleutian communities are lacking local law enforcement. The village public safety officer in Akutan has resigned for personal reasons. And False Pass lost its VPSO two months ago, when the officer moved back to the East Coast to be near family.
    Both were employed by the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association, or APIA. They get funding from the state of Alaska to put officers in five communities.
    But keeping them is a challenge. APIA’s public safety coordinator Michael Nemeth says most VPSOs don’t stay in the Aleutians and Pribilofs for more than a few years. Hiring from within the region might help with that, but Nemeth says it's tough to pull off.
    Without an officer on the ground, Akutan and False Pass will be relying on the Alaska State Troopers. And Nemeth says he could always quote-”saddle up” himself. He’s a certified VPSO with experience in Nelson Lagoon and St. George.

           Kodiak has a new parks and recreation director. Corey Gronn took the helm of the department on Monday, after helping fill the role since former director Charlie Powers left the island in May.
           During the City Council’s regular meeting on Thursday, City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said Gronn has been the go-to-guy for the department for the past five months and she’s pleased to see his official hire.
           “He’s had a lot on his plate. He manages the pool and the pool staff and helps facilitate everything else during this interim – he’s done that. Corey’s worked for the city since 2011 and he’s definitely proven to me that he’s motivated and he’s hardworking and he’s very smart. So I look forward to having him on board as one of our management team members and I hope you will help me welcome him to his brand new role.”   
            Gronn is a Kodiak High School graduate and served four years in the U.S. Navy before returning to the island with his family. He was hired as the manager of the new city pool in 2011. Gronn said taking on that role jump started his passion for parks and recreation.

Kodiak Woman Arrested in Anchorage for Drug Smuggling
Monday, 29 September 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT
    A 42-year-old Kodiak woman was arrested at the Anchorage airport Saturday by Alaska State Troopers after a long-term narcotics investigation indicated she may be smuggling drugs into Kodiak.
    The Troopers report that a search warrant was obtained and Tamra M. Jones underwent a full-body scan at an Anchorage hospital, which revealed a balloon concealed inside her.
    After its discovery in the scan, Jones voluntarily gave up the balloon, and it was found to contain 24.3 grams of heroin and 8.3 grams of methamphetamine.
    Troopers estimate the value of the drugs at over $25,000. Jones was arrested and housed in the Anchorage jail on $25,000 bail. She was charged with two counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fourth degree, and a count each of second- and third-degree misconduct.
