The Cordova public library is pleased to announce the ongoing “Knit and Lit” book club. Bring your knitting and meet up on Zoom on the last Wednesday of every month. The zoom meeting ID and password will be posted the day of the meeting. The next gathering is Wednesday May 26th at 6:00 p.m. For more information, email ‘Anna <at> Cordova library <dot> Org’.

Construction continues on the Northern Region Culverts Stage III project. Orca Road is closed 7am to 7pm Monday-Saturday, and 7am to 12pm Sundays to all non-essential traffic. The Alaska Department of Transportation hopes to have the project completed by early June, and they’re sorry for any inconvenience!

The Cordova public library invites local writers and artists of all ages to rally around the theme “Adrift” and submit work to the library’s first electronic quarterly called “The Catch”. You can submit poetry, short fiction, essay, photography, and art. Please keep file sizes under 1 MB, submissions are due by June 15th. Contact the library for details, and print copy will be available for use at the library.

Scammers are leveraging the COVID-19 vaccine to defraud Americans.  Nationwide, the FBI is joining with law enforcement partners to raise awareness of COVID-19 vaccine fraud.  In Alaska, if you believe you, or someone you know, have been the victim of COVID-19 vaccine fraud, please contact the FBI Anchorage Field Office at 907-276-4441. To report suspicious activity, please visit the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at ic3.gov.

Positive test results and vaccine numbers on the city’s covid dashboard will now be reported to the community on Fridays only, unless there is an event that warrants additional notification. Also, walk-up & drive-through testing are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For travel testing call 424-8000; for symptom testing call 424-8200. If a situation arises that necessitates additional testing, more testing options will be made available at that time.  Remember too that you can always check for the latest on testing at covid19.cityofcordova.net.

The city response team says it is still recommended that people continue to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart from each other in public settings. Vaccines are making the return to normal activities much safer, and they are hoping to meet the goal of a 70% vaccination rate for eligible recipients in our community prior to reducing mandates. All Cordovans aged 16 and above are eligible for the vaccine, as well as anyone coming to Cordova to work. The city asks that you please help Cordova reach its goal by contacting 424-3045 to schedule a vaccination.

KLAM and KCDV have classified ad space every day, 10 times a day between the two stations, for just $25 a week - plus we post your ad on cordovaradio.com at no extra charge.  If you have something you want to sell, a job posting, or a fundraiser coming up, put local radio and internet to work for you. Call, fax, email -- whatever’s best -- and get your classified ad on KLAM, KCDV, and cordovaradio.com.

Scammers are after your money and personal data during the vaccine rollout.  The city is warning cordovans that you can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine, you can’t pay for early access to the vaccine, and no legitimate person will call about the vaccine asking for your social security number, bank account, or credit card number.  These are all scams and should be ignored.  Learn more at ‘FTC <dot> gov <slash> coronavirus <slash> scams’.

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.

Remember that our town meeting talk show is available any time you would like to be a guest, suggest a guest, or just have us cover a topic.  It’s an on demand program, we can record at your convenience, and then the air slot is weekdays in the 10am hour on KLAM. You can also send a letter for us to read if that’s better 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.
