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
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>
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
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.
