    A Kodiak man has been appointed to a seat on the Alaska Commission on Aging. David Blacketer was appointed to fill the vacancy on the commission when Kodiak’s Iver Malutin died in June.
    Blacketer is a retiree from Safeway and serves on the board of directors of the Senior Citizens of Kodiak. Working with the Salvation Army, he is also an on-call chaplain for Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center.
    The Alaska Commission on Aging approves comprehensive statewide plans that identify concerns and needs of older Alaskans and prepares an annual analysis of the services that are provided to them.

           Since discontinuing its economic development contract with the Chamber of Commerce earlier this year, the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly is now discussing ways it can fill the role. During Thursday’s work session, Assemblywoman Carol Austerman proposed the possibility of an economic development sub committee, perhaps in conjunction with the city and other borough communities around the archipelago.
           Austerman said she and Assemblymen Frank Peterson and Aaron Griffin have discussed the idea for some time and would all be interested in serving on the committee.
            “And we don’t have any ideas yet I don’t think about what that’s going to look like, but we wanted to put it in front of the assembly as a whole to kind of get the buy in before we started working with the city council.”
            Assemblyman Dave Kaplan said he supported the idea fully, and thought it was important to include the villages in economic plans, because they have been overlooked in the past.

    The registration period opened on the first for candidates running for local office.
    As of Friday, only incumbent Dave Kaplan has filed for another three-year term on the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. He, along with assemblymen Tuck Bonney and Mel Stevens all have terms expiring this year.
    There is a pair of seats on the Kodiak City Council for three-year terms that will come available. They belong to Randy Bishop and Terry Haines.
    On the Kodiak Island Borough School Board, two terms will expire, those of President Katie Oliver and the seat previously held by Todd Hailey.
    There are also 10 service area board seats available for three-year terms.
    The deadline to toss your hat into the ring for local elections is August 15th, and the Kodiak Municipal Election is on October 7th.
    Meanwhile, even though the August 19th primary is 15 days away, voting opens today [Monday] for early absentee, special needs and electronic transmission voting.
    State Elections Director Gail Fenumiai says the state has already set up polling places across Alaska.
    “They can go to a variety of locations throughout the state and in front of an absentee voting official and cast their ballot.”
    People have until Saturday to apply for a mail-in ballot, and until August 18th to apply for an electronic ballot.
    “Voting will continue through election day and then polls will be open on August 19th from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for all voters to go vote in person at their polling place on election day,” she said. “Early voting and absentee voting is designed for those voters who know they will not be able to make it to their polling place on election day.”
    In the primary election, voters will decide whether to accept or reject an oil and gas production tax bill, Senate Bill 21, the legislature adopted last session, and they'll pick the candidates for U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Governor and Lt. Governor, and the state Legislature that will move forward into the general election.

    While communities in much of mainland Alaska are enjoying a record rainy summer, Kodiak is so far largely below average in rainfall and above average in temperature – but not by much, according to National Weather Service records.
    For the month of July, it rained just over two-and-a-half-inches, which is half the norm. It was, however more than twice as much rain as we got last July.
    The average high of 64 last month is four degrees above average, but neither the month’s rainfall nor temperature were anywhere near records.
    July’s high was reached on the 2nd, at 74 degrees officially, eight degrees below the record of 82 set in 2004. July’s low of 45 was also 8 degrees from the record of 37 set in 2007.
    The record rainfall for the month of July came in 1985, with 10-point-21 inches, more than seven inches greater than last month. The driest July was in 1980, when just 84-100ths of an inch fell – about a third of this year’s July.
    For the year, 2014 is proving to be wetter than usual, with 42.82-inches of precipitation since January 1st, which is 15-100ths more than average. Since June 1st however, we’re a solid two-inches less than the average of 9.29-inches.
    The National Weather Service is predicting above average temperatures for Kodiak and Southwest Alaska for the month of August, with rainfall hovering somewhere around average.
