            Crab Fest 2014 wrapped up yesterday and it was a different festival than most folks were used to. Last year Golden Wheel, the long-time vendor for rides, said they would not be returning to Kodiak, but Anchorage-based Tons of Fun Entertainment did make the trip and brought with it slew of new activities and games. Even better, the sun made an appearance during all five days and more than 20 food vendors lined the midway to make sure festival attendees were well-fed.
            But to really get the scoop on this year’s Crab Fest, KMXT sent reporter Brianna Gibbs, and news intern, Alex Petropavlovskiy, downtown have a bit of fun.

    The requirement that genetically-modified salmon be labeled as such cleared a significant hurdle Thursday. The Senate Appropriations Committee passed the Murkowski-Begich amendment during debate of the agriculture spending bill for FY 2015.
    The FDA has been considering the approval of Aqua-Bounty’s genetically modified Atlantic salmon for a couple of years, and both of Alaska’s senators have been trying to put up roadblocks in an attempt to stave off that approval. If it does get approval, the Murkowski-Begich amendment will require it to be labeled as a genetically modified food.
    “I still maintain that the FDA should not allow for genetically-engineered salmon to advance, but if they should move forward with that wrongheaded approach, at a bare minimum the consumer deserves to know that that is not a true wild salmon.”
    Senator Jeff Merkly, a Democrat from Oregon, agreed with Murkowski during the agriculture bill debate in committee:

           About two dozen people gathered in the Kodiak Public Library’s multipurpose room Wednesday night to hear about the state’s plan for replacing the aging ferry Tustumena.
           David Larsen is a naval architect from Seattle who has been working on the design process since November. Even though the Tustumena underwent a significant amount of repairs last year, Larsen said it’s still a 50-year-old ship and that’s why the state is thinking about her replacement now, rather than later.
            “As I’ve said you know we’re not going to have this new ship tomorrow, it’s 5, 6, 8 years down the road depending on the availability of funding. So it’s time to start thinking about it because it takes 3 years, 4 years to design and build a new ship.”
             Larsen said he did the math on how many miles the Tustumena theoretically has from her half century of operation and estimates it’s around 3.5 million.
             As for a replacement, Larsen presented preliminary designs for the ship, which will be 34 feet longer, 11 feet wider and 2 feet deeper than the Tustumena. He said it should be capable of carrying about 76 additional passengers, totaling about 250 people, and 16 additional vehicles. 
             Captain John Falvey, director of the Alaska Marine Highway System, was also at Wednesday’s meeting and said the ship will be smaller than the Kennicott so it can continue serving smaller ports.

    The Funny River Fire that has been burning on the Kenai Peninsula since Monday grew to nearly 63,000 acres overnight, and smoke continues to fill the sky from Kasilof to Kodiak.
    Dan Nelson, the Health and Safety Officer for Central Emergency Services in Soldotna, says the fire is only about five percent contained, but is not an immediate threat to life or property.
    “What you’re seeing today, a little shift in action from a game plan and trying to get priorities set and figuring out what’s going on to an actual going out there and attacking the fire. We have over 150 people on the ground and numerous aircraft out there. The priorities have not changed. The priorities are still keep the fire away from the Funny River community and the Kasilof community.”
    Incident commander Rob Allen says between 400 and 500 people are expected to be fighting the fire by the weekend.
    A command center at Skyview High School in Soldotna, just a couple miles from where the blaze began.
    At a community meeting in Kasilof last night many residents offered their own bulldozers and other heavy equipment to help fight the fire.
    The western Kenai Peninsula is once again under a “Red Flag Warning,” issued by the National Weather Service, as winds are expected to pick up again today.
    Just a reminder, conditions in Kodiak are also ideal for wildfire, with low humidity and no rain in the forecast until after the long holiday weekend, so exercise caution.
