            It was a day that forever changed Kodiak. On March 27, 1964, a 9.2 magnitude earthquake shook Alaska and generated a tsunami that washed away coastal communities, forcing towns like Kodiak to rebuild in the years that followed. It’s been almost 50 years since that Good Friday earthquake, and The Kodiak Daily Mirror and Baranov Museum wanted to do something to commemorate those events.
            Enter “9.2: Kodiak and the World’s Second Largest Earthquake,” a new book published by the newspaper with the help of the museum. Mirror Editor James Brooks said the collaborative project was about a year in the making, and seemed like a good way to honor the 50th anniversary. 
           “Fifty years ago the newspaper published a book of photographs from the disaster and proceeds from that were donated to reconstruction efforts. So as this came up we realized that we wanted to do a book for the ’64 earthquake for the 50th anniversary for it. And this covers basically photos from the archives in the Baranov museum that we tried to reach in and find photos that hadn’t been published before. There’s been a lot of photos that keep coming up again and again, but we wanted to reach into the archives and find things that really haven’t been seen before, and I think we’ve done that.”

            The Alaska State Troopers are asking for the public’s help in locating a wanted Kodiak man. Brandon Timpke, 23, is wanted on a $500,000 arrest warrant for weapons and drug charges.
            Last week troopers arrested Timpke in Kodiak on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court. He was then charged with driving with a revoked license and providing false information to police. He immediately posted bail and was released. Additional charges were filed against Timpke after a follow up investigation including misconduct involving weapons in the 2nd degree and Misconduct involving controlled substances in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree.
            In a release, Trooper Spokeswoman Beth Ipsen said Timpke is believed to be in Kodiak, but there is a chance he maybe somewhere else in Alaska. Timpke is described as 5-foot 10-inches with blonde hair and blue eyes, weighing approximately 175 pounds.
            While not considered to be a threat to the public, the troopers are asking that people not attempt to contact him on their own. Those with information about Timpke’s where abouts should contact the troopers at 486-4121, the Kodiak Police Department at 486-8000 or Kodiak Crime Stoppers at 486-3113.

            Kodiak’s recent snowfall left parts of town covered with a bit of ice this week. That is, until the rain washed much of it away, of course. But a sizeable patch of ice remained, and will remain in the months to come. The Ice Rink at Baranov Park opened up earlier this month and has been busy catering to Kodiak’s ice skating and hockey community.
           Landon Durand is the parks and recreation coordinator for the city of Kodiak and said this is the earliest the rink has ever been open.
           “We’re open seven days a week. Starting next month in December we’re going to start doing afternoon opens from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. every day. Then we have stick and puck that starts about 3 p.m. and runs until about 4:30 p.m. And then we have youth hockey that goes from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. And then we’ll mix in open skates, and women’s hockey, men’s hockey, coed hockey, mixed in with all of those.”
    He said the hockey leagues are already underway, but it’s not too late to sign up.
