KMXT Loses Friend, Volunteer, Board Member PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 10 February 2015

    Sad news friends; KMXT's Ron Sears passed away from complications of a congenital heart condition this (Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015) morning at 2:30; his mother was with him at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.

    Ron's first involvement with KMXT came while participating in a live performance of A Christmas Carol, and blossomed to include on-air volunteering, serving on the Community Advisory Board and Board of Directors and spending more years on Jock of the Rock than makes any good sense (a real sports fan, he love JOTR). He was even voted KMXT Volunteer of the Year.

    Despite a near-debilitaing stroke three-and-a-half years ago, Ron barely slowed down. His sense of humor, intelligence and and care for public radio in Kodiak will be missed. A lot.

     No word on local arrangements yet, but his family's address is 3483 Avalon Dr., #231, Hood River, Oregon 97031 if you'd like to send condolences.

    A married U.S. Coast Guard couple once stationed in Kodiak were attacked by another guardsman in Bourne, Massachusetts, late last week, leaving one dead, and the other hospitalized.
    Petty Officers Anna and Lisa Trubnikova were attacked in their home an hour south of Boston by heavily-armed Coast Guardsman Adrian Loya. 
    Lisa Trubnikova was killed in Thursday's shooting, her wife Anna was wounded. In the ensuing standoff with police, Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald was shot in the back but is expected to recover.
    Authorities haven’t disclosed a motive for the shooting, but Lisa Trubnikova’s relatives told the Boston Globe that Loya had been pursuing Lisa for years, beginning when he was stationed at Coast Guard Base Kodiak at the same time as the two women. The same relative told the Globe that Loya was obsessed and continued to pursue Lisa Trubnikova romantically even after she married and moved to Cape Cod. Relatives said they did not believe Lisa Trubnikova had reported Loya's behavior to the Coast Guard, believing she could handle the situation on her own. 
    Thirty-one-year-old Lisa Trubnikova was stationed at Coast Guard Joint Base Cape Cod, while 30-year-old Anna Trubnikova is based at Woods Hole.
    Coast Guard First District Commander Rear Adm. Linda Fagan thanked the Bourne Police Department for its swift response, saying it saved the life of Anna Trubnikova. She also thanked Police Officer MacDonald, who himself was a Coast Guard veteran.

    Halibut harvests have been on the decline in the Bering Sea for years. But the amount that trawlers and catcher-processors are allowed to incidentally take has stayed the same. Now, federal regulators have agreed to consider stiffer limits on halibut bycatch.

Subsistence Board Revamping Rural Determination Process PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 09 February 2015

    The way the Federal Subsistence Board has determined if an area of Alaska was rural, and therefore its residents eligible to subsistence hunt and fish on federal land and waters has remained largely unchanged. Until now. 
    Previously, areas had to meet all manner of criteria to be declared rural. The new method will flip that on its head, according to Deborah Coble, outreach coordinator with the Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage.
    "It's going from an entire page in a regulation book with all sorts of guidelines to basically two sentences,” she said. “And those two sentences in the regulations would state, 'the board determines which areas or communities in Alaska are non-rural. Current determinations are listed as.' And it would give a specific location and then all other communities and areas therefore are rural."
    A series of meetings around the state kicks off tomorrow here in Kodiak. Coble says they are basically wondering what residents think of the new determination process and why they feel that way.
    Coble says the impetus for the change came from public input.
    "The Federal Subsistence Board received 475 substantive comments from various sources, including individuals, members of the regional advisory councils, of which there are 10 councils, and other entities and organizations such as borough and village governments,” she said. “(They) wanted us to look at, actually, wanted the secretaries of interior and agriculture to look at the rural determination process."
    The Federal Subsistence Board meeting in Kodiak will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Best Western Kodiak Inn. It will be preceded by a Kodiak and Aleutian Islands regional advisory council meeting. Both meetings are open to the public, and the latter one can be joined via teleconference.
    If you'd like to call into the meeting, the toll-free number is 1-866-560-5984, and the passcode is: 12960066.
