Coming up this week, a Washington based fishing company is reminded not to drag in the Eastern Gulf, there was a pretty good payday during the second round of pollock roe auctions in Seattle, and there’ll be more information about marine science than you ever imagined presented at a symposium in Kodiak this week. All that, plus the herring focus is starting to shift to the west. We had help from KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak, Seafood.com’s John Sackton in Lexington, Mass., and KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.

           It’s a busy night for Kodiak’s many governing bodies, starting with a joint work session between the borough assembly and school board at 6:30 p.m. On Monday night the school board approved a $51 million budget for fiscal year 2015, and intends to ask the borough for $522,000 more than it is currently being funded. Last year the borough approved $10.6 million in funding for the school district, which is the state allowed maximum.
            The board and assembly will meet in the school district conference room for tonight’s work session. Following those discussions, the assembly will convene in a work session of its own in the borough conference room. On that agenda is a quarterly update from the solid waste advisory board, as well as a budget review of the borough’s general fund, special revenue funds and debt service funds. That work session is slated to start at 7:30 p.m.
            At the same time, upstairs in the borough assembly chambers, the city council will hold a regular meeting. It’s a relatively dense agenda, starting with five proclamations and a report from the downtown Kodiak revitalization special committee. The council will also vote on whether or not to authorize a bid award for construction management services on the new Monashka pumphouse and authorization of purchasing yard piping for that project.
            The council will also vote on whether or not to authorize an amendment to the professional services contract for construction management services for Phase 5 of the Aleutian Homes project, and vote on that project’s bid award.
            The council’s regular meeting will be broadcast live on KMXT.

           Bears have definitely been in the news a lot these days, and it’s the time of year when they will probably only continue to do so.  As more and more start emerging from their dens, it’s likely folks will start seeing a lot more of the famous Kodiak bruins, and need to be sure to take preventative measures with food and trash to keep them out of residential areas.
           But the recent sightings and reports make one Alaskan author’s visit to the island this Friday rather timely. Sherry Simpson wrote “Dominion of Bears,” and has spent a considerable amount of time studying, learning and writing about bears. She will speak at Kodiak College Friday evening, but KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs caught up with her earlier this week to learn more about her book, which explores the often complex relationship between humans and bears.
           Simpson is also a creative writing professor at University of Alaska Anchorage and will be reading excerpts from her book and discussing bears at Kodiak College. The presentation is free and open to the public. It will start at 7 p.m. in room 130 of the Benny Benson Building.

No Sign of Bear, Svoboda Says PDF Print E-mail

           Earlier today KMXT told you about the missing bear in the Spruce Cape and Woodland Acres area. Fish and Game officials were warning folks to keep an eye out for the bear, which went missing after being shot at Monday night by a resident in the area.
           Kodiak Area Wildlife Biologist Nathan Svoboda said the bear was likely hit, and fish and game and Alaska State Troopers spent most of Tuesday following a blood trail trying to track down the wounded bear.
           As of Wednesday afternoon the bear had yet to reappear anywhere and Svoboda said it’s likely it left the general area after being injured or may have died somewhere. He said they are still encouraging folks to be alert and notify fish and game of any bear sightings, but there haven’t been any reports within the last 24 hours.
           If someone does spot the wounded bear, or any bear in residential area for that matter, they should call fish and game, the Alaska Wildlife Troopers or the Kodiak Police Department.

            A handful of borough representatives recently returned from a trip to Washington D.C. where they spent two days lobbying on behalf of Kodiak. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said it was his first time to the nation’s capital, and the borough tries to send folks down every couple of years to make sure Kodiak has a voice on the federal level.
           “For me I think the important thing is that the senators and representatives as well as the agency people that we meet with when we go back there, it’s important that they meet face to face with assembly members especially. I think they hear from managers and their staffs about issues, but they really kind of want to hear it face to face from the elected officials from a community. They expect it, and I think it was a good move on this assembly’s part to go back to D.C. There are some critical issues that we’re looking toward the federal government to fund and like I said a pretty valuable opportunity to go back and talk to them face to face.”
            It was also Mayor Jerrol Friend’s first time in D.C. He said it was well worth the journey and he felt like Kodiak was well received.
