Less than a week away from Christmas people took time out of their busy holiday schedules to participate in KYUK’s weekly caller-driven show.
Tribal sovereignty and a tribal member’s ability to sell Calista shares came up early in the program. A thoughtful email discussed the future of the pool in Bethel, and recent search and rescue efforts were also discussed. A caller shares an interesting idea on how the city could cultivate and sell marijuana to fund multiple municipal efforts.
Call in, or just tune in, to Talk Line live every Friday morning starting at 10AM on KYUK 640 AM.
The varsity basketball teams from Bethel Regional High School officially got their competitive seasons started Thursday night. Both varsity teams are playing in round-robin tournaments in the greater Anchorage area this weekend- the boys at Service High School, and the girls at Grace Christian.
The boys season tipped off against Chugiak High School. The Warriors held the Mustangs of Chugiak HS to zero points in the first quarter, but managed only eight points of their own. Coach Cronk’s squad finally found their groove as the game progressed, and ended up winning 55-36.
The Lady Warriors, led by a single senior this season, opened their season against the Grace Christian Grizzlies on Thursday night. Grace Christian and Bethel came out equally flat, and the shaking off of the proverbial cobwebs took both teams nearly two quarters. The Grizzlies trailed the Lady Warriors throughout the first half, but they righted the ship midway through the third quarter to take their first lead of the game. From then on it was all Grizzlies all the way, and Grace Christian went on to win 36-23.
The Lady Warriors are back in action Friday at 3pm against Galena, and the boys varsity squad will take on Eagle River at 6pm. Both of those games will be live on KYUK 640 AM, and available for live streaming.
