The City of Cordova and Cordova Community Medical Center, as well as the Native Village of Eyak and Ilanka Community Health Center, are jointly warning Cordovans that they have received reports of street drugs containing fentanyl in Cordova. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than heroin, and significantly increases the risk of death from accidental overdose.  Fentanyl test strips and Narcan are available free of charge at both Cordova Community Medical Center and Ilanka Health Center.   Learn more at cityofcordova.net.

We’ve been telling you that all our talk shows and daily briefings are archived for you on our CordovaTV youtube channel.  What you might not know is that if you subscribe to our channel (which is completely free) AND click the notification bell (also free), you’ll automatically get updates the moment a new post is ready.  So again, visit youtube.com/cordovatv, subscribe to the channel, and click the notification bell -- that will make you the first to know when we have new content for you.

KLAM listeners – We've got an opportunity, if you would like, to expand special talk programming on Saturdays to kind of change things up a bit… long-form shows, NOT about politics, but about "better living" topics.  We already have On the House with the Carey Brothers sharing home tips… but there are also shows to help you learn about new tech (computers, smartphones, etc) and get to know your existing tech better, car care and maintenance, hunting and fishing topics from around the country... that kind of thing.  If you’re interested in being a listener or sponsor of this kind of programming, call us at 3796 or email ‘saturday <at> cordovaradio <dot> com’.

You’ve heard the Carey Brothers for years with the ‘On The House Tip of the Day’ weekday mornings on KLAM… now we’re also carrying their longer Saturday show each week from 11am to 1pm, right after swap shop. James and Morris Carey offer home tips, share homeowner trends, and even answer questions from listeners.  So plan to join us Saturdays from 11 to 1 on KLAM for On the House with the Carey Brothers -- sponsored by ACE Hardware on AM-1450.
