    The Northern Lights Conference wrestling tournament was held at Colony High School in the Valley over the weekend, with the Bears taking third.
    Andrew Caballa was Kodiak’s only title-winner in the 120-pound category. Four other wrestlers, Joel Valdez, Jay-Ar Small, Kerry Powers and Leo Sega, finished second.
    Host Colony won the tournament with 321.5 points, followed by Wasilla in second with 304 points and Kodiak with 214. Palmer, Kenai and Soldotna rounded out the field.

    The Kodiak High School Bears girls basketball team had another good weekend, sweeping the Palmer Moose up in the valley.
    On Friday, Jerica Nelson led Kodiak with 13 points and Megan Pyles added 12 to down the Moose 53-26. Carissa Cannon scored 10.
    On Saturday, the Bears won 39-to-21. Palmer only managed 7 points in the first half. Hannah Wandersee led the Bears with a dozen points, with Cannon and Megan Pyles adding 10.
    Kodiak is now 4-0 in the Northern Lights Conference, and remain undefeated overall at 16-and-0.
    The remainder of the Bears’ games will be here at home, giving fans a good opportunity to turn out and watch the best team in the state play some great basketball.

    The Kodiak boys were slated to play a two-game home series here against Palmer, but the games were postponed due to poor weather. They have been rescheduled for next Monday and Tuesday.

Unalaska to Fight P/V Stimson Relocation PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 03 February 2014

    Unalaska’s lobbyists will be gearing up for a fight to keep the State Trooper patrol vessel Stimson homeported there.
    At last week’s city council meeting, Unalaska City Manager Chris Hladick said the state wants to relocate the Stimson to Kodiak. He said it would save the state about half a million dollars as part of governor’s proposed budget for next year.
    But Hladick said it would be bad news for the Aleutians. As a result, he said the city’s legislators will be hearing from them.
    He said not having an enforcement vessel in Unalaska ”doesn’t sound like a really good idea whatsoever.” He added that Kodiak is a two-and-a-half day steam from Unalaska in the best of conditions.
     The Stimson currently patrols the Bering Sea fisheries and Western Alaska along with the P/V Woldstad, which is stationed in Kodiak.

           It’s so far so good for the Kodiak High School renovation project. At least that’s the word from the construction manager Bruce Walter of Wilson Engineering. Walter provided an update to the borough assembly during its work session on Thursday, and said the project is about 30 percent complete.
            “We’ve contractually been into the contract 10 months and construction nine months, which puts us at 30 percent of a 32 month project. Completion for the project is still scheduled for November 2015 and to date we’ve issued no change orders extending that deadline.”
           In terms of finances, Walter said they are doing fairly well with the $62 million construction budget, and have only tapped into a small amount of the project’s $2.5 million contingency budget. 
           “To date we have awarded $152,000 in change orders, which represents .24 of the contract sum or 5.8 percent of our construction contingency. So contrary to what’s going around out there on the street, I think our budget and our contingency are doing quite well.”

          Walter said there are nine phases of the project, and five of those phases are currently underway. He said there have been a few hiccups along the way, including moisture issues with the basement locker room and the discovery that the entire gym floor had to be replaced, both of which prolonged completion dates. The gym has since been finished and use of the downstairs locker room was turned over to the high school today.
