As the ink dried on Gov. Walker’s signature finalizing the Alaska Native Linguistic Emergency Administrative Order, Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott went to Bethel to speak about what the order can do. He also took a moment to recognize public broadcasting’s John Active, who made major contributions to keeping language alive in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.

 


Support KYUK's Fall Fundraiser

Oct 5, 2018

It’s that time of year again. KYUK’s Fall Fundraiser is in full swing and our goal is to raise $32,000 to help keep public broadcasting strong in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta. Whether it’s learning about a new microgrid in Kongiganak to lower heating costs, or how to make a blueberry pie, finding new ways of drying fish, or being reminded of the little things that help make life healthier everything you hear on KYUK is made possible by our members. We simply can’t continue to do what we do without you. We know you turn to KYUK for the news of the day, weather updates, birthday greetings and so much more, and each fall we turn to you for your support.

Together, we can continue to preserve language and culture, uphold tradition, and connect fellow Alaskans to each other and the world.  Join the team. Become a member with your pledge of support today.

Bethel voters have decided that their community should remain wet, for the time being, after the strictest form of local option alcohol control available failed in Tuesday’s election. Sponsors of the petition drive that put the proposition on the ballot are disappointed, and are now seeking different options for moving forward. One thing is for certain: legal alcohol sales are still a go in Bethel, though for now there are only a beer and wine store and a restaurant selling alcoholic beverages.

Winter is coming. And in the village of Aniak, that means people are saving up to cover high heating costs. The Aniak Traditional Council is gearing up to help residents cut down on those bills by taking in applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program or LIHEAP.

While unofficial election results show the ballot proposition to ban alcohol sales in Bethel has failed, many people living outside of Bethel went into election day hoping the proposition would pass.

A man from Massachusetts has pled guilty to what a state prosecutor is calling “one of the worst Fish and Game violations the state has seen this year.” The man is convicted of leaving an entire bull moose in the field and taking only the antlers.

The Facebook post showed gallon-sized bags of moose ribs for $25 each and appeared on the private page "Bethel Bargains." Selling big game meat is illegal in Alaska, and the post's creator, Arnold Lupie, age 36, of Bethel, received a minor offense charge.
