            The Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center typically has educational programs year round, but things really pick up during the summer months. Yesterday a handful of refuge staff members spoke on KMXT’s Talk of the Rock, and detailed some of the activities and programs happening over the next few months.
            Malia Sutphin runs the refuge’s F.U.N. program, which stands for families understanding nature. It runs year round, and usually takes place on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. Sutphin took over running the program when she moved to Kodiak in May. It’s open to families with children ages 3-5 and focuses on a variety of nature and environment-related topics.
            “Sometimes it’s specific to Kodiak and other times it’s more general and can be more about Alaska, stuff about Alaska.” 
            Sutphin worked with adult programs at the Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward before coming to Kodiak and said she had to adjust her teaching style to fit the much younger age group. She said the most important thing she’s learned is how to get kids   

            “If you can get a kid excited about something, it causes them to care. So that’s kind of my motivation or my goal. Even though it can be really simple if you know, I can get them excited about who has horns or what animals have antlers, you know maybe they’ll be able to understand the differences and then when they see an elk or a deer they’ll be able to say, ‘hey mom, look at the horns,’ and understand the difference and then care about those animals.”

           Last weekend marked the start of the seasonal farmer’s market. Every Saturday from now until September, Kodiak’s crafters, growers and small business entrepreneurs gather at the Fairgrounds to buy, sell and trade goods. KMXT’s news intern, Marina Cummiskey, was at Saturday’s market and collected these voices. Folks can check out the market for themselves each Saturday at 11 a.m. The market typically runs until 2 p.m., or when things start selling out – which is usually pretty quick, so people should try to get there close to 11 a.m.

           Plans are in the works for a new dock at Anton Larsen Bay. During the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly’s regular meeting on Thursday the assembly approved a contract for design and construction of the dock, which Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said is “badly needed.”
            “The facility we have there is in just a state of disrepair. This will be approximately a 60-by-12-foot dock facility. Build it and they will come, because we know how popular it has become.”  
             The dock is often used for recreational boating, but also serves as a commuting point for folks traveling to and from the villages of Ouzinkie or Port Lions, as well as Afognak Island.

Council Will Talk Snack Shack, Safe Streets Tonight PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 10 June 2014

           The Kodiak City Council will meet for a work session tonight and discuss, among other things, the possibility of a permanent snack shack at Baranof Park. The council was approached by members of the Kodiak Football League to manage a snack shack that would sell concessions and merchandise during athletic events.
           City code currently prohibits such permanent structures for the purpose of displaying, selling or soliciting the sale of goods or services, but it does allow permits to sell concessions using temporary structures. The football league uses one of these permits annually, but the hope was to build a permanent structure that could then be rented out during the off season or used for city purposes.
           During a work session last month, the city decided the football league should work with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board on the matter. The council will hear the board’s recommendation on the permanent snack shack during tonight’s work session.
           Also on the agenda is a presentation of a proposed Kodiak Safe Streets Taskforce and a discussion of the Marine Highway Transportation Advisory Board’s visit to Kodiak and a possible reception. The council will also hear a presentation on building permit fees and review a draft letter to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the Clean Water Act.
           Tonight’s work session starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the multipurpose room of the Kodiak Public Library. The council will hold a regular meeting this Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
