           Tomorrow night the Kodiak community will have a chance to hear classical piano, probably as it’s never heard it before. Classical Pianist Alpin Hong is in town this week as part of the Kodiak Arts Council’s performing arts series and will perform at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium. Hong is a world-renowned musician, who takes a modern day approach to the classical genre, eliciting stories, humor and charm with each performance.
           While Hong’s work as a classical artist has taken him to all 50 states and the White House, he also spends a considerable amount of time working with youth and advocating for arts education. Hong spent the last few days performing for Kodiak students and hosting workshops for the island’s aspiring musicians. 

            Auditorium doors open at 6 p.m. this Saturday with Hong taking the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and $20 for students. There is also a family price of $75 for two adults and two students. Tickets can be purchased online at kodiakartscouncil.org or at the box office before the show.

    Alaska’s Lieutenant Governor was on a campaign swing through Kodiak this week, meeting with supporters as he runs for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate race. Mead Treadwell is seeking to unseat one-term Democratic incumbent Mark Begich.
    During a wide-ranging interview with KMXT – which we’ll air on Talk of the Rock – Treadwell spoke about having attended Sandy Hook Elementary School in  New Town, Connecticut, in the 1960s. The school was torn down last year after the December 2012 mass shooting there that left 26 dead.
    “I transferred from Holly School in Newtown to Sandy Hook School in 1964. I was in the second grade. I remember that very well because the first week I was in school was right between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So I remember what it was like being a kid and all the anticipation of Christmas and all the joy. One of the first thing we did in Mrs. Heller’s class was cutting out construction paper. Probably eating the paste. But making things to hang in the hallways, and it was a great time to be a kid.”
    It was that same season and those same hallways, some 48 years later, that Adam Lanza committed the mass murder.

Air Station Kodiak Crews Kept Busy Wednesday Night PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 January 2014

    Coast Guard helicopter crews airlifted three mariners with unusual injuries near Cold Bay Wednesday night. Petty Officer Shawn Eggert says a distress call came in from the150-foot fishing vessel Pavlof around 11 p.m., reporting a 50-year-old man had taken ill.
     “He was reported to have a staph infection and his vital signs were decreasing.”
    Eggert says an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter attached to the cutter Munro picked up the man about 50 miles outside Cold Bay, and took him to the community’s clinic. He was then transferred to a Life-Med flight bound for Anchorage.
    Around the same time, another Coast Guard helicopter crew airlifted two burn victims off a bulk cargo carrier. Eggert says two crew members on the Astoria Bay were badly burned on Tuesday, while they were fixing the ship’s boiler.
    The Astoria Bay was traveling to China when the men got hurt. The ship consulted with the Coast Guard’s flight surgeon and diverted to Unalaska for medical help, but Eggert says the injured men wouldn't have made it that far.
    “There were at least third degree burns. It was bad enough to warrant flying them to the Cold Bay clinic, where the Guardian Life Flight [helicopter] could pick them up to take them to the Seattle Burn Center.”
    Eggert says the burns are serious, though it’s not the most common kind of accident that happens at sea.
    “Your most common injuries usually involve slips, trips and falls, basically. But burn injuries are one of the other dangers while working aboard a boat -- especially any time you’re working around the boilers or engine room.”
    The Astoria Bay is a 609-foot bulk carrier flagged out of Hong Kong.
