Early voting started yesterday in Alaska. Get out there and vote--don't wait till Election Day and risk something coming up to prevent your participation. There's early voting in lots of states so check your local information and see if you can take advantage of this opportunity. I just found out that I am going to Anchorage for my job next week so I am definitely going to vote before I go. It would be just my luck to get stranded due to plane problems or weather issues (see previous post about When Air) and not get home in time. I am taking no chances!
Our local radio station had a GREAT pledge drive. Our goal was $10,000 and we raised $18,000! Thanks to a certain friend of mine from Mississippi who pledged a membership from afar--now that's some support! Your cool KUCB sweatshirt will be on its way tomorrow. I heard a rumor that some of the guys from "The Deadliest Catch" will be wearing those sweatshirts this season. You know that will make them the latest fashion trend. :) Speaking of "The Deadliest Catch," the brother of one of my coworkers is on one of the boats this year and their whole family was video-ed at the dock, saying goodbye. Now I will get sucked into watching the darned thing again.
