Snap Judgement on KODK 90.7-FM

 

Home

 

Did you know that Snap Judgement airs on our new station, KODK 90.7-FM? This show focuses on the life and stories of our fellow Americans, much like this American life, but Snap has a way of finding and choosing stories that are a little more... taboo. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes terrifying, but always entertaining.

 

Check it out at 10am on Sunday mornings. KODK, a clear alternative.

           Kodiak’s first community garden is quickly becoming a reality, but it will take volunteers from the community to make it happen. Dave Kaplan is a project coordinator for the Kodiak Soil and Water Conservation District, the organization behind the community garden project. Kaplan said the borough and city have provided land for the garden, which is located on Larch Street, behind the boulders across from the small park. He said Kodiak Soil and Water have purchased the lumber, hardware and liners needed to build 24 raised beds in that area.
             “And on August 2 we’re asking that we have a little community effort – anybody who wants to volunteer, so we can construct the beds, the raised beds, and get this thing rolling.”

Coming up this week, Kusko fishermen get another salmon opening; herring is kinda slow in the Aleutians, and the Canadians are the latest to airlift salmon. All that, and a blast from the Alaska Fisheries Report past. We had help from KYUK’s Daysha Eaton in Bethel, KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, KTOO’s Lisa Phu in Juneau, KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg and KMXT student intern Yasent Oliver in Kodiak.

Judge Rules in Favor of Setnet Ban Initiative
Thursday, 24 July 2014

Alexandra Gutierrez/APRN
    A superior court judge has ruled in favor of an initiative to ban commercial set netting for salmon in urban areas.
    Earlier this year, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell blocked the initiative sponsors from collecting signatures in an effort to appear on the ballot. The decision was based on a recommendation from the Department of Law that the measure would qualify as an unconstitutional appropriation. The state also argued that such an initiative would count as an allocation to sportfishermen and that it would erode the authority of the Board of Fisheries.
    Superior Court Judge Catherine Easter dismissed those arguments, finding that the initiative does not qualify as a give-away program and that it is a permissible regulatory measure.
    The Department of Law is currently reviewing the decision to see if an appeal is appropriate. The Division of Elections will begin preparing signature booklets in the meantime.
    The initiative is being sponsored by the Alaska Fisheries Conservation Alliance, with the aim of getting it on the 2016 ballot. It is backed by key sportfishing interests, including real estate developer and major political funder Bob Penney. The group argues that set net gear should be prohibited to reduce the number of king salmon taken by the commercial sector.
    The measure would shut down the commercial set netters who operate on Cook Inlet, the only region in the state that would be practically affected by the ban.

           Folks needing specialized eye care will be able to get it next week. Gary Weiner is an eye specialist and surgeon who came to Kodiak to help volunteer with the Kodiak Baptist Mission. Upon arriving, however, he was asked by the Mission’s director, Trevor Jones, if he would be interested in offering his medical services while on the island.
            “And I said sure. Sure. So I called Jeremiah Myers and he offered us to use his place and see patients and offer medical opinions on eye disease. We won’t be doing any surgery or anything, but we’ll be offering them free services – I mean all the services I’ll be giving will be provided free – seeing people and possibly making diagnosis and helping whoever we can with their eye problems.”

Kayaking Kodiak: Nature Writer Explores the Archipelago

           Kodiak is a well-known hot spot for adventurists and nature enthusiasts, attracting folks from all different walks of life and far corners of the world. One such adventurer traveled from San Francisco this summer to explore parts of the archipelago via kayak.
           California-based writer and explorer Daniel Fox is the founder of the Wild Image Project, a website dedicated to inspiring connections with nature using images, video and written narratives.
            “I consider myself kind of an artist and the wilderness is my studio. And I go out and try to get whatever inspiration from the environment that I explore, and each is usually different. I was for a month in Utah doing photography of bisons or buffalos. So that was one story. And then Alaska last year, and then this one – Kodiak. I wanted to come here and get the sense of it.”   
             Through his photographs and writing, Fox said he tries to bring back teachings from the wilderness.
              “Nature has become this concept – it’s a thing we put on the wall. Everything is cute, everything is wonderful, it’s from the comfort of our office or living room. We watch on TV on the computer and it’s all beautiful. But nature, primarily, is a place that makes you humble. Things are bigger than you. You realize that you are not the master of the world, there are a lot of things that are out of your control and it’s an exercise of humility. And there’s a lot of teachings that you get by spending time in nature. So I try to bring that back through my stories.”
               Fox has been coming to Alaska for two years now, first when he kayaked from Sitka to Hoonah in Southeast and then around Juneau. He said he’s drawn to the state because he feels Alaska has an honest relationship with nature because people live closer to it. This year he came to Kodiak and spent 10 days kayaking to Afognak Island, where he spent time documenting the natural scenery and wildlife.
                Then, Fox spent two weeks kayaking from Pasagshak to Alitak and was able to document old Native villages for the Alutiiq Museum and the Akhiok-Kaguyak Corporation.
