city of bethelThe City of Bethel’s regular election will not be until October, but all the City Council candidates will convene this week in a special question-and-answer forum presented by KYUK.

The forum will include host Joli Morgan along with a panel of journalists from multiple local media establishments, and the seven eligible candidates vying for the three open seats.

This forum will allow Bethel voters to get to know all seven of candidates and their views before heading to the polls in October.

Tune in Sept. 16th at 6:30pm for the live event on 640-AM KYUK.

KYUK will broadcast a Yup’ik translation of the entire forum following the 8pm conclusion of the live event.

This week’s program covers a wide range of topics coming from calls and emails. Diane, Fran, and Joe once again take control of the KYUK signal and host another rousing show.

The upcoming Bethel City Council election was a common theme in the conversations and comments, a handful of callers highlight upcoming community events, emails highlight a continuing theme that loose dogs are an ongoing problem in Bethel, and Senator Mark Begich joins the show in the latter part of the program.

Listen to 640-AM KYUK’s Talk Line live every Friday morning starting at 10AM, or catch the encore presentation Friday evenings at 7PM.

Joe and Fran bounce ideas and opinions off of one another in Diane’s absence, while callers and email writers chime in with their thoughts and concerns.Fran

The topic of water and sewer rates in Bethel dominates a better part of the first half of the show, but eventually the emails and calls change to the normal revolving-door of topics. Vehicle safety once again came up in conversation, as did buyer and seller return policies.

You can listen and call in to Talk Line every Friday morning starting at 10AM on KYUK 640-AM. You can also listen to 640-AM starting at 7pm on Fridays for an encore edition of that morning’s Talk Line.

Talk Line host Diane McEachern

This week’s program had a large number of callers on a wide range of topics, yet the program had an oddly small number of emails. Callers discuss the changes they’ve seen and changes they like in regional corporations; Dave Tranthum offers to name a walking trail in the ATG memorial park after the volunteer who steps up to spearhead the trail project; and the final portion of the show focuses on water and sewer rates in Bethel.

Listen to Talk Line live every Friday morning starting at 10AM, and catch the encore presentation Friday evenings starting at 7pm on 640AM.
