          The sun had yet to rise Saturday morning when nine runners toed the line at Rotary Park on Near Island for KMXT’s Annual Run the Rock marathon. By 8:20 a.m., when the first runner was rounding the corner at Dead Man’s, deep pink hues had begun to fill the sky. Minutes after, when second and third place passed, bright golden rays streaked the horizon. By 8:45 a.m., when the ninth competitor ran by, the sun had fully crested and was radiating over the water. With those first signs of sunlight and only about 2.5 of the 26.2 miles complete, the day just beginning.
           Run the Rock is a buffet of distances – ranging from a traditional 5k to the grueling full marathon, which takes runners from Near Island to the very end of Anton Larsen Bay Road, where then turn around and race for the finish at Bear Valley Golf Course. Saturday’s nine runners included seasoned locals, but also brought some out of town visitors to Alaska’s Emerald Isle. One of those latter competitors was Richard Decample.
            The 69-year-old runner from Seattle flew into Kodiak solely for Run the Rock, and when he crossed the finish line Saturday afternoon, it marked his 350th marathon.
            “This was the kind of marathon I wanted for my 350th.”

           On Tuesday, Kodiak voters took to the polls to cast their ballots for three assembly seats. When all was said and done, newcomers Larry LeDoux, Dan Rohrer and Rebecca Skinner took the top three spots, earning more votes than the four other candidates running – incumbent Assemblymen Tuck Bonney and Dave Kaplan, as well as Jascha Zbitnoff and Brenda Schwantes.
            Rohrer brought in the most votes with 1,137 and said he’s thankful the election is over and ready for what he recognized is a huge job.
            “I’m appreciative of everybody having voted for me that did that was certainly a huge showing of support and I felt very – I felt honored I guess is the right word. But also feel a tremendous sense of responsibility now I guess to live up to people’s expectations.”
            Rohrer said he doesn’t have an agenda in terms of what he’d like to accomplish as an assembly member, but rather is excited to get to work and start representing the community at large.
            “I actually think it’s wrong when people run with an agenda. I don’t like to see that. So I don’t have anything that oh my this is what I have to accomplish or want to accomplish – what I want to do is I’m excited about getting sworn in and getting to work. I realize there’s a lot of stuff for me to learn about the running of the borough and I’m excited to start that process of learning. And I just feel like there’s a lot ahead of us specifically with the code review and obviously the bond was approved and with the approval of that bond comes some work to make sure we spend that money wisely and well.”

Parnell Sued Over National Guard Scandal Records PDF Print E-mail

    Alaska Public Media and Alaska Dispatch News are suing Governor Sean Parnell over access to documents related to the National Guard Scandal. APRN's Alexandra Gutierrez submitted her request in May. Both organizations were denied the records by Parnell's office in late September.
    The complaint says that Parnell's office is not complying with the Public Records Act. The office also failed to provide a log of records related to the scandal and the reasons why they weren't provided.
    Attorney John McKay filed the suit on Wednesday on behalf of both organizations. He says they're asking the court to expedite the process because it's important for voters to have access to the facts about Parnell's actions before the gubernatorial election next month.
    "They've offered explanations for what he did or didn't do,” McKay said. “Voters may find that reasonable or they may not. But we need to have facts so people can decide if he acted appropriately or is being criticized unfairly."
    It's up to the court to decide when to respond to the complaint.
    A federal government investigation of the scandal has revealed incidents of sexual assault, sexual harassment, misuse of government funds, and ethical misconduct.
