Air Station Crew Hoists Injured Crewman PDF Print E-mail

    An Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew safely hoisted an injured 36-year-old man from an American Seafoods Company fishing vessel about 100 miles north of Cold Bay yesterday (Thursday).
    The man, whose name the Coast Guard did not release, was reported to have lost two fingers in a steel door on board the 252-foot factory trawler American Triumph.
    Weather conditions were mild at the time of the hoist and the Jayhawk crew were able to transport the injured man back to Cold Bay for awaiting medical services.
    The Jayhawk and its crew were forward deployed to Cold Bay in support of the winter Bering Sea fisheries. Lt. Cmdr. Douglas Watson said a timely medieval like this illustrates the importance of forward deploying helicopters around Alaska.

Council Looks to Add $880K to Budget Spending PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 February 2015

    When the Kodiak City Council meets tonight, the new fire chief will be given the oath of office. Jim Mullican was given the job permanently last week. He had been acting chief since Rome Kamai was suddenly suspended in December.
    The council will also hold a public hearing and a vote on the supplemental appropriation to the current fiscal year's budget. A supplemental budget is to make up for changes in income or spending since the budget was finalized last year. This year's one supplemental is for $879,753. 
    The council will also approve its budget goals for the new fiscal year that begins July 1st. 
    A resolution supporting the Alaska Municipal League's request to the state that it commit to $60-million annually to the Revenue Sharing Program will also be considered, though the vote may prove futile given the billions of dollars the state is short this year.
    And finally, in executive session, the council will give City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski her evaluation and contract review.
    The meeting starts at 7:30 in the assembly chambers of the borough building, and will be broadcast live here on KMXT.

Coming up this week the North Pacific Council looks ready to get get tough on Bering Sea halibut bycatch, locals along the Kusko want more of a say in their fisheries, and a fisheries observer meets a tragic fate – on shore. All that and more, coming up, on the Alaska fisheries Report. We had help from KUCB's Lauren Rosenthal and Annie Ropeike in Unalaska, KYUK's Ben Matheson in Bethel and APRN's Liz Ruskin in DC.

    The CEO and board president of the Alaska Aerospace Corporation were before the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday morning, making a pitch, not so much for funding, but for the opportunity to move on. CEO Craig Campbell even raised the possibility of taking the state-owned corporation private.

KMXT Loses Friend, Volunteer, Board Member PDF Print E-mail

    Sad news friends; KMXT's Ron Sears passed away from complications of a congenital heart condition this (Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015) morning at 2:30; his mother was with him at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.

    Ron's first involvement with KMXT came while participating in a live performance of A Christmas Carol, and blossomed to include on-air volunteering, serving on the Community Advisory Board and Board of Directors and spending more years on Jock of the Rock than makes any good sense (a real sports fan, he love JOTR). He was even voted KMXT Volunteer of the Year.

    Despite a near-debilitaing stroke three-and-a-half years ago, Ron barely slowed down. His sense of humor, intelligence and and care for public radio in Kodiak will be missed. A lot.

     No word on local arrangements yet, but his family's address is 3483 Avalon Dr., #231, Hood River, Oregon 97031 if you'd like to send condolences.
