           Movement is underway to repeal an ordinance passed by the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly earlier this month.
           On July 3rd the assembly passed the ordinance with the intent of providing guidelines for appropriate behavior during assembly meetings. Among other things, the ordinance states that community members cannot attack or question the motives of another person. In the weeks following the ordinance’s passage, dozens of community members have expressed concerns about the ordinance and what they feel is an over step in terms of free speech.
             Betty MacTavish spoke during the assembly’s regular meeting on Thursday and said she and other concerned community members are waiting for petition sheets from the borough clerk’s office so they can collect signatures to place a repeal on the borough’s October election ballot. She said that isn’t ideal, and would rather the assembly take action.
              “It’s my understanding that the borough assembly could vote to repeal this ordinance yourself, avoiding the community vote, so as the assembly wishes.”

    An Air Station Kodiak helicopter crew was dispatched Saturday morning to medevac an injured crewman from a Horizon Lines cargo ship in the Gulf of Alaska. According to the Coast Guard, the 39-year-old man - who they did not identify - suffered from a chemical exposure and needed urgent medical attention.
    The cargo vessel “Horizon Kodiak” was about 200 miles from its namesake island when the call for help was made. By the time the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter arrived, the Horizon Kodiak had changed course and they rendezvoused about 160 miles offshore.
    The Coast Guard also deployed an HC-130 Hercules aircraft as a precaution for the long-distance medevac. The helicopter crew transferred the injured man to Kodiak where emergency medical personal were waiting. His condition was not reported, but in video from the helicopter, the man was on his feet when meeting the hoist basket on the stern of the Horizon Kodiak.
    Weather on scene was reported as 23 mph winds and six-foot seas.

    Kodiak runner Trevor Dunbar just completed his first professional running tour of Europe with largely positive results. In his first two races he set personal bests, but finished with a disappointing performance in his third race, despite winning it.
    Dunbar ran his second sub-four-minute mile in Dublin, finishing in 3-minutes 57-seconds. He then completed the 3,000-meters in Cork in 7-minutes 45-seconds.
    On Saturday in Belgium, Dunbar won the B-, or second-tier 5,000 meter race in 13-minutes 39-seconds, which is 13-seconds slower than his P-R he set last month at the NCAA track and field championships. By comparison, the winner of the A-tier race won in 13-minutes 6-seconds.
    Now a pro, Dunbar recently inked a deal to be represented by Flynn Sports Management, which negotiated a sponsorship deal with Nike. Dunbar will remain in Eugene, Oregon, to train with the university’s distance coach.

Waterline Work May Cause Issues PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 21 July 2014

    Residents on the east end of town could experience water issues this afternoon and evening as Kodiak public works will be flushing water mains around the 3400 block of Rezanof Drive East, starting at 1 p.m. At the same time, the Kodiak Fire Department will be testing fire hydrants in the same area.
    Water system flushing clears out the lines from any fine particulates that can build up in the pipes, which could result in discolored tap water.
    Public Works reminds users that the water is still treated and disinfected, despite being discolored, and meets all drinking water standards.
    To clear out your water pipes, the city recommends turn on the cold water in a tub or shower until it runs clear, and they suggest not washing clothes during this time, either.
    Areas that could be affected include Woody Way, Sitkinak Drive and Woodland Acres.

Yasent Oliver/KMXT

            Hello, I'm Yasent Oliver, a summer intern at KMXT as part of the stations summer archiving project. Throughout the summer, I have been listening to various Alaska Fisheries Reports from the 1980s and early 90s. The shows were hosted by Laine Welch, current producer of Fish Radio, which airs daily on KMXT.
             While listening to these, one story struck me as quite interesting. The story was about a new technology that could help crab fisherman get closer to the catch quotas: E-Mail. Here are some sound bytes from the news story. Keep in mind, when she says "Morrison," she is referring to:
              "Fish and Game management biologist Rance Morrison at Dutch Harbor."
