(February 20th)- Iron Dog 2018 moved down the Yukon on a blistering pace.  For the rest of the story, head over to the KIYU News page here


            

             INFORMATION

  

 

The proposed federal government's fiscal year 2019 budget calls for the elimination of funding for public media. Nearly half of KIYU's operating budget comes from this funding, so a large cut in, or total elimination of, federal funding would be a devastating blow to our operations. But nothing is certain yet until the budget is passed by both houses of Congress and signed by the president.

 

Stations in Alaska are fortunate to have support from Senators Murkowski and Sullivan and Representative Young. They are are all supportive of federal funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. There is likely to be bipartisan support in Congress for funding public media at the federal level.

 

If you wish to take action, there are several ways you can help:

- Send thank you messages to Senator Murkowski, Senator Sullivan and Representative Young. Let them know that you care about CPB funding and the service that KIYU and other Public Radio stations provide and how much you appreciate their support. Those messages can be sent to office@kiyu.com or mailed to P.O. Box 165, Galena, AK 99741 and we can forward them on. 

- Send your message of support to www.protectmypublicmedia.org, a grassroots national effort to create a database of supporters.

- Send a text to 52886 with the words "Public Media".

Video coverage of games at the SHS gym in Galena are archived at this link.

 

UPDATED Friday Noon -

Iron Dog hit the trail again this morning starting at 4 am for the Nome to Fairbanks leg of the race. Racers are already making it Galena.

The layover rules for the second portion of the race have changed, so that Iron Dog can still hold its finish line festivities on Saturday in Fairbanks.  Racers are now required to take an 8 hour layover and a 6 hour layover anywhere between White Mountain and Manley. Both layovers may be combined into a 14 hour layover at a single location.  There is no mandatory hold at Tanana. 

Teams are expected to begin arriving in Fairbanks at approximately 10am Saturday and will continue arriving throughout the day. The awards will remain on schedule for Saturday evening.

 

The Iron Dog Checkpoint in Galena is once again at the Crowley office in old town.  Food donations for the racers and Iron Dog volunteers will be welcome and needed all day today (Friday).  

Crowley asks that Galena spectators avoid parking on the road in front of Crowley, because racers come tearing down that road at a high rate of speed to get to the gas pumps.  And please use the dike road to get between locations in old town, instead of driving by the Crowley office where you could encounter Iron Dog traffic.  

Track the racers here.

 

   Galena varsity teams host the Hutchison Hawks this weekend at the SHS Gym. We will have live play-by-play for you on the radio and video stream.

Game times for this weekend:

Saturday:

You can sign up for the raffle at Sweetsir's Store this week or at the games this weekend. Baked goods will be available for purchase Friday evening during the basketball games, and soup and bread on Saturday evening.

Jacob would like to thank everyone in advance for helping to support the Galena track team.
