          This weekend marks the 25th annual Coast Guard Appreciation dinner, hosted by the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. On Saturday, folks will fill the Harbor Convention Center to honor and show their appreciation for the men and women who serve the community through the U.S. Coast Guard.
           Summer Wood is the community relations director for the Chamber and said the event typically brings in a good crowd and local chefs provide food for attendees.
          “During the dinner we will hear from Senator Gary Stevens, Mayor Pat Branson, Mayor Jerrol Friend. We’ll also be hearing from John Whiddon – he’s also going to be speaking about the Coast Guard Foundation and what the Coast Guard Foundation does for the Coast Guard. And we’ll also be hearing a testimony from someone who was medevac’d here in September, she wants to show her appreciation for the Coast Guard.”   
            Wood said various captains and commanders from the Coast Guard will also speak throughout the evening.
             Tickets are still on sale for $50, which covers the cost of one civilian and one enlisted member. Wood said the goal is that no one from the Coast Guard will have to pay for their dinner that evening. Likewise, raffle tickets will be given to enlisted members for door prizes, which have donated by local businesses and organizations.

          Folks who enjoy salmon-themed literature will be pleased to know they’ll have an opportunity to score a free book this fall. Erin Harrington is the executive director of the Salmon Project, which is the organization hosting a statewide book drop. The “drop” she says, will involve distributing almost 1,200 books to roughly half a dozen communities around the state.
           The book being distributed is King of Fish – the 1,000 year run of salmon.
            “Which is by David Montgomery, who is a geomorphologist down at the University of Washington, and wrote this book a little over a decade ago about salmon and the interactions between salmon and people across ranges in Europe, North America, on both the east and west coasts of the United States and Canada and then up around the corner, just barely touching on B.C. and Alaska. So it’s a really fascinating book that looks at more than 1,000 years of the way people have interacted with this fish and relied on it. And then it looks at some of the lessons that can come out of those other geographies which have largely lost their salmon.”   
              Harrington said the book drop idea was modeled after the popular Big Reads, which promote community literacy and conversation by distributing different texts for free.

Coming up this week, the United Fishermen of Alaska announced its Fishermen of the Year and Hall of Fame awards; we’ve got a wrap up of the Cook Inlet salmon season, and the plan to eradicate pike from the Kenai Peninsula is finally moving forward. We had help from KRBD’s Megan Pedersen in Ketchikan, KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel, and KDLL’s Shaylon Cochran in Kenai.

pdf Full Borough Election Results 16/10/2014,11:05 140.77 Kb

    The Kodiak Island Borough municipal elections have been canvassed – meaning all outstanding votes have been added to the totals from the October 7th election.
    Provided by the borough clerk’s office, the results show that the election results were decided by less than 2,000 people. Only 1,968 votes were cast out of a registered voter pool of 9,100, meaning just 22 percent of eligible voters turned out. However, that is actually five more percentage points than last year, and nine more than 2012.
    The precinct with the lowest percentage of votes cast was Bell’s Flats, where only 11-percent, or 186 out of 1,711 voters, cast a ballot. The voters of Ouzinkie had the highest turnout, with 34 percent.
    The counting of questioned, absentee and personal representative ballots changed the final election numbers, but did not change who will be sworn in tonight.
    Dan Rohrer picked up another 168 votes for a total of 1,323. Larry LeDoux got another 164 votes to bring his total to 1,285; and Rebecca Skinner received another 124 votes for a total of 795.
    The final tally for the two school board seats have incumbent Katie Oliver with 1,319 votes and Duncan Fields with 1,268. Oliver picked up another 186 votes and Fields another 172.
    Proposition 1, which will allow the Kodiak Island Borough to issue bonds to conduct maintenance and repairs to borough schools, picked up another 173 votes in favor and 82 more votes against. It passed with almost two-to-one approval with a total of 1,216 yes and 630 no.
    The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will certify the election results, and the clerk will swear in the three new assembly members, tonight at the assembly’s regular meeting. We’ll carry that live on KMXT at 7:30
