    This week we’re listening to chats with what were the three major candidates for Alaska governor when they were in Kodiak for the fisheries debates last Thursday. Of course the political picture changed on Tuesday when Bill Walker and Byron Mallott joined forces in attempt to unseat incumbent Sean Parnell. Yesterday we heard from Walker, and today, Mallott.

    Remember that when this interview was done, he was still a candidate for governor. He spoke with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs about how his campaign was going.
    Tomorrow we’ll hear from incumbent Sean Parnell.

Read the Gulf of Alaska Environmental Impact Statement here

    The U-S Navy is seeking feedback on proposed training operations in the Gulf of Alaska. It’s a continuation of projects that have been going on for several years.
    The Navy is currently conducting trainings in the Gulf of Alaska under the project name Northern Edge. It’s working on setting up the next phase of that project, to begin in 2016.
    Alex Stone is the project manager for the Gulf of Alaska Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS. He has a background in environmental science.
    “One of the reasons why we do these EISs is a little confusing. Associated with the EIS we get a permit from the National Marine Fisheries Service and that permit is good for five years. So, the EIS that we do supports them issuing the permit.”
    The Navy is currently training under a permit for 2011 to 2016.
    “But, because the EIS process takes so long, we’re already working on the EIS to support the next permit which will start after the current one expires.”
    Liane Nakahara is a public affairs specialist for the Navy. She says at this point, the process is about half way done.
     “We just completed the draft EIS and that’s kind of in the  middle of the entire process. So, we took all the comments that came in during the scoping phase, which was a couple years ago, and used those comments to develop the draft analysis, which is out for public review right now.”
    Stone says this looks at the impact of training activities that are part of an annual project that includes several branches of the military.
     “The Navy brings up an aircraft carrier strike group to participate in a joint exercise with the Army and Air Force and what this EIS looks at, of course, is the Navy part of it, which takes place in the Gulf of Alaska.”
    Stone says the Gulf of Alaska is prime training area for the Navy for three reasons.

    A fun-run with a twist is returning to Kodiak this year: the second annual Milk Run, where after the race, participants will be served milk and cookies. The run is helping to support Kodiak Kindness, a local non-profit program that provides mothers with individualized information and support for breastfeeding and infant feeding by phone call and home visits.
    The Milk Run was founded last fall by Brooke McLaughlin, a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor at A Balanced Approach. She explained she got the idea from a similar event in Anchorage, and decided to do the same in Kodiak, because of her personal experience with Kodiak Kindness.
    “We began this event after I was inspired by Owen’s Milk Run, which is an Anchorage based race, supporting breastfeeding moms out of Anchorage.  And being in the position of having my own child, and utilizing the Kodiak Kindness program, I just wanted to find a way to give back.”
    McLaughlin said last year’s race was a success, with about 60 families and the Kodiak High School Cross Country Team showing up to support Kindness.
     The Milk Run is Saturday, at the North End Trail on Near Island. Participants can go any distance they choose up to a 5k, and there is also a shorter race specifically for younger children. The race is $10 per person, $20 for a family or by donation. Registration begins at 10:30 and the race starts at 11.
