            While the holidays are over for many folks in Kodiak, they’re also just beginning for some. Today is Russian Christmas, a holiday celebrated by the Russian Orthodox Church, which follows the Julian calendar. Alutiiq Museum Director Alisha Drabek said the holiday often spans multiple days, and is best known for the practice called starring.  
             “The caroling or starring that happens here in Kodiak and throughout Russian Orthodox faith is anywhere from three nights to several more, but here locally they practice a three day caroling celebration. So after church services on January 7, the parishioners gather after the evening church service and start at Father Innocent’s house, and sing songs, traditiaonl Alutiiq caroling songs, Russian Orthodox Church songs, usually around eight to nine songs with a small group of people.”

            The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be in town this week to hold public meetings about what to do with cattle on remote islands south of Kodiak. Chirikof and Wosnesenski islands have been uninhabited for years, unless you count the herds of cattle that have been roaming the combined 36,500 acres since the 1880s.
            The islands are part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and in December, the wildlife service announced plans to remove the cattle, which it said are damaging natural ecosystems and habitat through grazing.
            But not everyone thinks the cattle need to be removed. During Thursday’s Borough Assembly meeting Lorne White spoke on behalf of the Kodiak Farm Bureau in favor of keeping the cattle on both islands.
            “And we would like to request that the assembly either do something in the form of a resolution, or at least make a motion to support an old resolution that you had on Chirikof Island. The Chirikof Island cattle are being threatened again for removal by the federal government, Fish and Wildlife Service. In the past, Resolution 2002-18 was prepared by Assembymember Turner and the borough assembly took a position that recommended actually that there be a land trade in order to preserve that herd on Chirikof Island.”
             The Fish and Wildlife Service will hold an open house at the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center tomorrow at 4 p.m. to answer questions about the cattle and discuss different options regarding them. White said he hopes the assembly members attend that, and then take a position on the matter, preferably in favor of preserving those cattle herds. White said the cattle have a lot of historic and genetic reasons for preservation.

           The holidays are often a chance for Kodiak High School Alumni to make their way back to Kodiak from wherever life took them in the years since graduation. This year one alumna in particular had to travel a bit farther then most. Alysa Horn is currently in the midst of her first season of professional women’s basketball in Germany where she is a guard forward for TSV Viernheim of the Bundelisga second division.
           Horn is a 2008 KHS graduate who went on to play for the University of Alaska Anchorage, where she graduated last year. She took a few minutes while she was in Kodiak to sit down with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs and talk about her experience playing professional basketball and living overseas. Horn averages about 18 points per game with 8.6 rebounds and leads her team in scoring so far this season.
