Coming up on KTNA:

Mon–On Alaska News Nightly- Governor Walker and House Republicans traded hostile comments in dueling press conferences today over a proposed natural gas line. Also, an auction in downtown Anchorage to sell bear hides, sheep capes and more than one ton of caribou antlers. Those stories and more coming up at 6:30.

Mon–This evening on Line One, Your Health Connection:  Alaska’s Homeless Youth:  The streets, trail and woods of Anchorage can be a mean place for a homeless person. Now, imagine that person is your 15-year-old son or daughter. Nobody knows the realities faced by these kids more than the front-line workers from Covenant House Alaska, who work the streets daily in an attempt to preserve the health and lives of this vulnerable population. Hear the second of a three-part series addressing the issue of teenage homelessness in Alaska, on this evening’s Line One program, at 7 pm.

thru Tues am–On this week’s Talk of Alaska:  The Iditarod Trail began as a mail route and became a protected corridor and recreational resource. Even if climate change puts an end to its use by dog mushers, the evolution of the Iditarod Trail will continue.  In their own way, our corridors tell the story of Alaska, and we’ll be exploring a few of those pathways on the next “Talk of Alaska,” Tuesday morning at ten o’clock, on KTNA.

thru Wed–This week on Su Valley Voice, host Phillip Manning is joined by Joe May and Raine (rainy) Hall, members of the “Old Iditarod Gang,” to discuss the new book Iditarod:  The First Ten Years. His third guest is Tim Jones, author of The Last Great Race.  They will also take calls from listeners.  The live broadcast of Su-Valley Voice is at 10:00 am on Wednesday, March 4th.
