As nighttime temperatures drop, a hint of color change in leaves on local trees, and a tiny dusting on the tops of the Chugach, the signs are all there: school is back in season!  

Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard after-school program celebrates this time, as it means the students will be back each weekday from 2pm to 5pm.  

Our guest on Morning Line today, Youth Advocate/Counselor Kimberly Smith, says this year is, in some ways, a fresh start, as the program adds a component for Middle School age students.

In June, the Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard Theatrical Music Video Camp spent a day at KNBA to learn a bit about microphone use and practice delivery.  

The students consisted of seven creative middle school students, while a handful of high school student interns as well as Academic Instructor Cail Hubert & Counselor Kimberly Smith provided direction.  

The following Public Service Announcements are the products the camp produced - Enjoy!

As summer gets into full swing, summer camps are helping youth stay active and involved now that school is out.  KNBA is involved in helping a middle school camp, the CITC Theatrical Music Video Camp, touch on voicework and using microphones for Public Service Announcements. 

Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard program Counselor Kimberly Smith says although CITC's summer camps have filled up already, the Schoolyard After-School Program has availability this fall - which is aimed at Alaska Native and American Indian high school-age students in the Anchorage area.  

The “White House Champions of Change” program is scheduled Friday to present Cook Inlet Tribal Council, or CITC, with an award for an innovative educational program that teaches kids about advanced technology. In a prepared statement, the tribe said its fabrication laboratory, or “Fab Lab,” gives students access to tools such as high-tech design programs, industrial grade manufacturing machines and sophisticated electronics and programming.  

Legislative Council votes to drop lease on costly downtown office

By the Associated Press

Lawmakers are a step closer to moving out of office space in Anchorage that costs $4 million a year to lease.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports the Legislative Council voted Saturday to recommend the lawmakers pull funding for the lease, while also carving out 45 days to negotiate a competitive purchase price.

The $4 million renovated space had previously cost $680,000 to lease.

Sen. Dan Sullivan turns attention to veterans' health care U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan is hosting meetings in Alaska to hear from veterans on health care provided through the Veterans Administration. The VA health undersecretary will attend listening sessions on Aug. 24 and Aug. 25 in Fairbanks and Kenai. The Senate Veteran Affairs Committee also will hold a field hearing on Aug.

Governor Bill Walker says his priority is for Legislators to pass a fully-funded budget, not where it's done. A Legislative attorney earlier this week said the move from Juneau to Anchorage would be illegal without the Governor's approval.

A proposed temporary closure of brown bear hunting in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is drawing opposition. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials say the population needs to recover after 168 brown bears, including 42 adult females, were killed in the last three years. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game says fewer females were taken in the spring hunt thanks to new regulations allowing hunters to harvest brown bears at registered black bear bait stations on lands outside the Refuge, where open areas allow hunters to better identify the sex of the animal.
