Talk of the Town

The community of Unalaska is a busy place to live.  Our community calendar is full of events and activities.  Talk of the Town is your source for coverage of community events and sports.  KUCB staff writes many of the stories, but we also accept contributions from community members for this section of our website.  Talk of the Town stories are often used on Flash! Unalaska, our weekly television show.  If you'd like to submit a story to Talk of the Town, contact Chrissy.

Raider supporters lined the perimeter of the pool last Friday for the UCSD Community Swim Meet at the Aquatic Center starting at 6pm.  Fifteen high school students and eight Jr. High students were there to participate.

The meet began by recognizing the three senior students on the team including Ethan Izler, Amiel Fernandez and Kiara Villamor. The students accepted hugs from Coach Erin Reinders and flowers from their teammates.

  The UCSD Cross Country team has had a busy season so far, with an exciting few weeks ahead.  According to Coach David Gibson, the high school team is fairly small this year,  "but they are still plugging away and getting better."

The PCR coordinated a Labor Day Softball Tournament this year that was held at Kelty Field over the first three days of September.

PCR employees Cynthia Drayton and Carlos Tayag coordinated the event and Tayag said it has been a few years since Unalaska has seen a summer softball tournament.  “This year was well attended, both in terms of participants and spectators,” Tayag said. He added that Mayor Kelty was pleased to see a tournament resurgence and offered Tayag and his crew gratitude for “bringing softball back to the island.”

A new radio program celebrating the extraordinary youth in Unalaska will be debuting on KUCB 89.7FM beginning on September 5th at 3:30pm. Conceived and hosted by Amanda Greaves, “Kids Talk” will highlight youth on the island who are contributing to our community in a positive way.
