            Last night the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly got a glimpse at what’s been going on in the school district recently, and what’s to come. The assembly has begun to tackle its strategic planning for the year, and education makes up a large portion of the borough’s budget. During last night’s work session Superintendent Stewart McDonald gave an introduction to the district’s strategic plan, and how it might fit with the borough’s.
           The discussion was meant to be an overview, and the hope is to tackle the nuts and bolts of the education plan during the assembly’s next work session. Still, McDonald addressed certain portions of the district’s plan and made suggestions about how the process could be easier this time around.
            McDonald said it would help if the borough could provide some sort of timeline for budget projections and how much funding the district could expect. 
            “To say maybe at the end of the third quarter, that would be a time the borough could say we think our minimum contribution could be this and it would be reasonably close to what it might actually end up being so that the deficit is small. Maybe we just come up with an agreement that we propose our budget based on a three year average, and if it changes, then it changes and we make revisions.”

Bears Split in First Two Rounds at State PDF Print E-mail

    The Kodiak High School volleyball team was involved in two sweeps yesterday during the first two rounds of the 4-A state championship tournament in Anchorage. Unfortunately, one of those was a loss.
    The Bears, the number 1 seed from the Northern Lights Conference, came out strong to sweep the host Chugiak High School Mustangs 25-22, 25-11 and 25-19 in round one. That set up a winners bracket match against South Anchorage, who beat West Valley.
    And though the Bears kept it close, they were swept by the Wolverines 28-26, 25-21, 25-21.
    Though that loss drops the Bears to the losers’ bracket, all is not lost in the double-elimination tournament. They face the same task they did last week in the regionals when they had to come back and win two against the winners’ bracket victor to claim the championship.
    Kodiak’s next game is at 3 this afternoon against the winner of this morning’s Colony – Juneau game.
    As always, you can tune in online to watch the Bears’ games. Just search for Kodiak at U-Stream.TV.

            Su Coe and Alice Anderson Soto were classmates at Kodiak High School in the mid 1970s. But they were far from friends. Years after the two left Kodiak, they reconnected and put aside their past differences. In 2009, Soto was diagnosed with kidney failure, and Coe took it upon herself to find an organ donor. They’re still looking, but more than that, they want to spread awareness about the need for organ donors. Despite their turbulent teenage years, the two women said their Kodiak connection is what united them under the same cause later in life.
    Soto is currently undergoing three hours of dialysis three times a week at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. Coe was turned down as a potential donor because of her own medical past. The Facebook page, Fishing for a Kidney for Alice Anderson Soto, posts regular updates on Soto’s condition, and informational links about organ donation.
