           The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved almost $400,000 in non profit funding during its regular meeting last night. The money, which will be included in the FY 2015 budget, will go to 17 non profits in varying amounts, based on need and services the organizations provide.
           The assembly introduced a new application process for non profit funding last year, and was firm on its requirements for local organizations seeking borough dollars this time around. A handful of those organizations ultimately missed out on funding due to incomplete or late applications.
           Assemblyman Mel Stephens moved to amend the non profit funding list to include those organizations, but when put to a vote, the amendment failed 6-1.
           During last night’s meeting the assembly also introduced an ordinance that would provide specific guidelines for assembly members’ and community members’ behavior during meetings, and how to handle situations when those guidelines aren’t followed.
           Assemblywoman Chris Lynch explained the goal behind the ordinance.

           School has been out for almost a month now, but about a dozen middle and high school students have continued their learning outside the classroom. The Baranov Museum’s summer film intensive workshop has been underway for about three weeks and participants have been busy researching, conducting interviews and editing video for their very own documentary film.
           Marie Acemah co taught the film intensive and said this is the third year for the program, which typically tackles a specific theme.
          “So the first year it was Filipino community stories, the second year it was the tsunami and earthquake of 1964 and this year we’re tackling the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Each student makes a documentary film on specific topic. So it’s just a really intensive experience.” 
           The workshop is sponsored by the school district, and they provide laptops for editing and iPads for filming. It doesn’t cost anything for participants, only a three week commitment and understanding that it will require additional work outside of the three hours they meet each morning. It’s open to students entering grades 7th through 12th, and high school history credits are given to those who complete the project.
           This year’s workshop theme was fitting, as 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Students covered topics ranging from affects on the fishing community to how the event was portrayed in the media at the time.

           A former Kodiak doctor recently dabbled in the art of book writing while documenting his own family history in Alaska.

           Dr. Bob Johnson’s new book, “Alaska Frontier Surgeon,” captures the life story of his father, the late Dr. Arthur Holmes Johnson, who was the first physician to call Kodiak home. Johnson said his dad first stopped in Kodiak in the late 1930s, on his way back to Oregon after working as a doctor in Nak Nek for the summer. He said his dad fell in love with the island and its small community.
           “It was a village, about 550 people. That’s sure not many people to support a doctor, but Kodiak captured him, as it had captured others.”
