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.

The Unalaska City High School Native Youth Olympics (NYO) Team capped off an excellent season by being honored by the City Council during Tuesday’s meeting.

The NYO season started back in March with over 30 high schoolers joining the team. Athletes have a choice of ten different events. Although NYO is an individual sport in many ways, passing your skills down to younger or less experienced NYO athletes and helping your teammates is very important.

This weekend, Unalaska will send off the class of 2017 with a commencement ceremony.  From all of us at KUCB, congratulations and best of luck!  Most of you have volunteered for the station at some point and we appreciate it.  We are also sending off staff member Mia Magalong, and board member Tavis Nguyen-McConnell.  

KUCB sat down with a few seniors in Ms. Rudio's class to talk about what makes Unalaska unique, and what they'll miss about their home town.

Each year, Unalaska's Community Center organizes two weeks of intensive spring clean-up to address a winter's worth of accumulated trash on the beaches and roadsides of Unalaska.  Community clean up is in full swing, and it runs through May 15th.  Industrial-strength yellow trash bags are available at the Community Center and residents are encouraged to get involved.  As an incentive, prize tickets have been strategically placed around town. If you find one of these tickets you can redeem it at the Community Center.

The Unalaska City High School Band traveled to Valdez last weekend to attend the Aurora Regional Music Festival. The event started on Thursday with an opening concert featuring various bands and choirs from the region. The Unalaska Band played A Grand Entrance by Brent Bain. Honor and Mass Band rehearsals took up the rest of the day. The Unalaska Band again had the most Honor Band musicians, making up over half of the Honor Band.
