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!

            On this week's show, incidents in the fisheries take the life of a Bering Sea crabber, and left two men stranded on a remote island.

            Alaska's newest senator gets assigned to the influential Commerce Committee; a new study compares the economic impact of sport and commercial fisheries; and life as a Deadliest Catch camera operator. All that and more this week on the Alaska Fisheries Report.

            We had help this week from KUCB's Anne Hillman in Unalaska , APRN's Libby Casey in Washington, D.C., and West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Glynis Board.

            Today (Wednesday), Russian Orthodox faithful celebrate Christmas, and next Wednesday they commemorate the New Year. Some members of the Alutiiq community, who inherited the Russian Orthodox calendar and the associated traditions, are prepared to celebrate the holidays in traditional style.  Sven Haakanson, director of the Alutiiq Museum in Kodiak, and Kodiak elder Iver Malutin sat down with KMXT's Mike Murrary on Talk of the Rock this week to discuss the history and plans for holiday celebrations this year.

Starring began Wednesday night at the Alutiiq Museuan and will continue for the next two nights. A new exhibit about Russian Orthodoxy in Alutiiq life also opened this week at the museum.

            The Coast Guard suspended its search Wednesday at 11:49 a.m. for Keith Criner, 43, a resident of Stockton, California., after he  became tangled in a crab pot line and fell from the 109-foot fishing  vessel Seabrooke approximately 22 miles northwest of Cold Bay at 9:50 a.m. Tuesday.

            An MH-60  Jayhawk returned to the 107-square mile search area at 10:15 a.m. today (Wednesday) and covered  approximately 25 square miles of ocean, after search and rescue crews failed to locate the fisherman Tuesday.

            Petty Officer Lee Goldsmith said Suspending a search is one of the most difficult decisions the Coast Guard has to make

Criner fell overboard when his foot got tangled in a line while he was setting crab pots. The Seabrooke was fishing for tanner crabs at the time.

            Coast Guard Petty Officer Walter Shinn in Juneau said the man?s next of kin were notified yesterday afternoon.

            The Coast Guard reported Tuesday that the 43-year-old man was not wearing any sort of flotation device and is presumed dead. This is the first Bering Sea crab fishing fatality since 2005.

            The Seabrooke is owned by Seabrooke Enterprises of Freewater, Oregon, but homeported in Kodiak.

          The name of the man who fell off the fishing vessel Seabrooke yesterday has not yet been released, and the Coast Guard is in the process of determining whether or not to continue the search for him.

The man fell overboard just before 10 a.m. Tuesday when his foot got tangled in a line while he was setting crab pots. The Seabrooke was fishing for tanner crabs about 22 miles northwest of Cold Bay at the time.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Walter Shinn in Juneau said the man's next of kin were notified yesterday afternoon and that the Coast Guard has a mandatory 24-hour waiting period after next of kin notification for release of information such as the man's name and hometown.

Shinn also said a Jayhawk helicopter was dispatched to the area at 10 a.m. this morning, and that the Coast Guard will search the area and re-evaluate the situation, making a determination whether to continue or abandon the search.

The Coast Guard reported Tuesday that the 40-year-old man was not wearing any sort of flotation device and is presumed dead. This is the first Bering Sea crab fishing fatality since 2005.

The Seabrooke is owned by Seabrooke Enterprises of Freewater, Oregon, but homeported in Kodiak.
