HD Back on the Air
The boys in engineering have been hard at work and successfully puzzled out what happened to our HD signal. (Something to do with old equipment being replaced). The important thing is that HD 1, 2, and 3 are back on the air with an even better signal than before. Thanks Joe and Willy!
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!

Rescued Seal Pup Returns to Kodiak Waters Today
Wednesday, 17 September 2014

    A harbor seal pup that was found near Kodiak abandoned and injured in early June is scheduled to be released after three months of rehab at the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward.
    The pup, now a healthy 25 kilos, or 55 pounds, will be released by NOAA Fisheries officers and personnel from the Sea Life Center at 11:30 this morning at Mayflower Beach.
    The pup, named Mount Everest, was rescued on June 3rd, with multiple puncture wounds on the beach of an island off the coast of Kodiak. NMFS officers and a local veterinarian cared for the animal before it was transported to the Sea Life Center for rehabilitation.
    There, Everest’s wounds were treated and healed within a month, and he was trained to chase small salmon in a pool he shared with other rescued seals.

    Work continues to pick up the pieces of the failed U.S. Army rocket that exploded moments after launch from Narrow Cape three weeks ago, and the rocket range remains off-limits to the public. In fact, according to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation’s Jade Gamble, not even state inspectors have been allowed in to determine the environmental impact or to issue any sort of update.
    “No there hasn’t been. We don’t have a lot of information on it at this point. It’s been a fairly low public health risk to this point, so we just haven’t put out any type of sit-rep for it.”
    “Sit-Rep” is short for situation report, which the DEC issues for pretty much every incident that could affect the environment, including fuel spills. And though it was fuel that did scatter around the Kodiak Launch Complex, it is very different than the standard diesel fuel spill that DEC regularly reports on.
    “Right now they’re working on collecting that material and dealing with that material, and we don’t have an estimated time at this point. It may take a bit to do the sampling and get a work plan in place. So this is something a little bit unique to deal with on Kodiak.”
    Dozens of square miles of tundra, grassland and wetlands used by humans, bison and cattle are closed off. Berry-picking especially is a common traditional use on the rolling hills surrounding the KLC, but Gamble said it’s not known yet how any residue from the solid rocket fuel will affect the area.

After Rescue, A Jail Cell

    An Air Station Kodiak helicopter crew rescued three men from a hunting trip gone bad on Sunday morning, but for one of those men, things went from bad to ... well, maybe not worse, but he was arrested by the Alaska State Troopers after returning to Kodiak.
    At about 8:30 Sunday morning the troopers received a report that three hunters at Windy Lake had lost their tent during the storm overnight and were becoming hypothermic. Both the troopers and Sea Hawk Air contacted the Coast Guard, which launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to retrieve the men.
    According to the Coast Guard in Kodiak, the Jayhawk was able to land near where the men were and they were flown to safety. After returning to Kodiak, they were examined by emergency medical personnel, and then one of them was arrested for an outstanding reckless driving and failure to appear warrant from Soldotna.
    Thirtyfive-year-old Zebadiah Carpenter of Kenai was arrested by troopers and lodged at the Kodiak Jail without bail pending his arraignment.
    Despite any past lapses in judgment, Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Doug Watson said the men did everything right by planning ahead, maintaining contact with their charter airline and rescuers, and most importantly not over-estimating their ability to endure the elements.
    Conditions at Windy Lake lived up to its name, with nearly 50 mph winds, intermittent showers and a temperature of 45-degrees.

    Two health centers in Kodiak and more than two dozen others in Alaska will receive federal funding to hire additional doctors and expand primary care services.
    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the $5.3 million in funding through the federal health care law will help the centers reach more than 7,700 new patients.
    The Kodiak Area Native Association will receive $187,000, while the Kodiak Island Health Care Foundation is in line for $196,142.
    The Department of Health estimates the funding will allow for longer hours and expanded services, including dental, vision or mental and behavioral health services. It also will allow for the hiring of 40 additional staff members across the state.
