           Rezanof Drive West was reported blocked by a mud slide near Lash Dock in Womens Bay late this afternoon. It's the second slide to hamper traffic on the street today. At about 6:15 this morning a mud slide near Pier 2 blocked the westbound lane for about a half hour.

            Likewise, slides on the Chiniak Highway, near the American River have also been reported and the Department of Transportation is responding.

           With more than three-inches of rain in the past 48 hours, the soil along the hillsides is saturated and more slides are likely. The Kodiak Police Department advised motorists to drive carefully and to watch for heavy equipment clearing the road.

Troopers Release Brief on Underwear Bandit PDF Print E-mail

            During the past week, Alaska State Troopers in Kodiak have received a series of burglary reports, criminal trespass, and theft that they believe are related. The troopers say citizens are returning home to find their residences have been entered and various items, but mostly womens' underwear, have been stolen and or rifled through.
           While investigating these crimes, AST has learned that other citizens in town have encountered similar events in the recent months, but have not reported them to law enforcement.
           One of those is Hannah Clark, a fisherman who lives in Bells Flats. She said she started noticing some of her things were moved around in her home over the summer when she'd come back in from fishing. She said it didn't really sink in until today (Wednesday) that those incidents and her missing underwear were related.
           “I can't believe there is an actual underwear bandit,” she said.
           What makes it worse, Clark said, is she just got a $150 order from Victoria Secrets and they're all gone. Clark said at least the underwear bandit has good taste.
           Troopers are reminding the public not to leave their homes unsecured and to be vigilant of their surroundings, and to report any suspicious activity. The investigation by troopers is ongoing and they're asking anyone with further information regarding this or similar activity, contact them at 486-4121.

          Both the Kodiak City Council and Borough Assembly are working to extend an Environmental Protection Agency exemption for vessel discharge. As part of the Clean Water Act, the EPA regulates vessel discharge permits for certain vessels, to make sure they are monitoring what water is being put back into the ocean. Commercial fishing and charter vessels have long been exempt from the permit and monitoring process, but that exemption is set to expire December 19.
           Local government officials are working with U.S. Senator Mark Begich to enact legislation to extend that exemption, or even make it permanent.
          During Monday’s city council work session, Councilman Terry Haines said it is a common sense move for fishing vessels, who would have to monitor stuff like dishwater and other things that have little to no environmental impact for the levels they are being discharged.
           “But fishing vessels are being kind of grouped up with vessels that have larger and potentially more harmful discharge and it’s been something that’s sort of been extended along this moratorium for specific vessels of these EPA. And it would be nice if they could make it permanent.”

          Yesterday was Veteran’s Day, and while services for Vets have been offered locally for some time, soon they will be able to access their very own clinic. A spokeswoman from Kodiak Area Native Association said construction is underway for a new Veteran’s Affairs Clinic on the corner of Mill Bay and Benny Benson Road. She said KANA purchased the property specifically for the clinic and expects to have it completed sometime in March.
          In the meantime, she emphasized that KANA does offer services for Vets, both Native and non-Native, so anyone interested should contact them to learn more about what is offered.
           As for the new clinic, she said some staff will be transferred over from current KANA offices, but they will likely also undergo a new hiring process, too.

Chamber Warns of Phone Scams PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT

    The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Monday sent an alert to its members warning them of a recent telephone scam they've become aware of.

    Members have received calls from someone identifying themselves as from “Merchant Account Services,” wanting to discuss over-billing. They then ask the business to fax them statements so they can discuss their account. Doing so could expose a company's private account details, opening them up to fraud.

    The chamber says the numbers have been coming from the 214 and 866 area codes, and recommends businesses not answer or hang up on the callers and then notify their bank to ensure their accounts are secure.
