            At Thursday's work session, the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly discussed the possibility of selling the hospital building it currently leases to Providence. Borough administration says revenue from the lease is $720,000 per year, but that's not enough to cover operating costs and depreciation. In fiscal year 2010 the borough lost over $230,000 and in FY 09 nearly $300,000.

            The current 20-year lease expires in 2017 and is without a clause that would allow the borough to raise the rent and make up some of the loss.

            Assemblywoman Louise Stutes doesn't see the lease as fair to the people of Kodiak who she says are paying higher-than-average medical costs. Stutes said that she can't use her insurance at the hospital for anything other than emergency room visits because the rates are so high.

            October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Kodiak Women's Resource Crisis Center will be putting on a number of events throughout the month to pay respect to victims of domestic violence and to inform residents of available resources on the island. Maryann Joyce is an outreach coordinator with the center. She says many people might not realize that even in Kodiak domestic violence is an issue.

            "Because we're such a small community everyone is related or intertwined somehow. Everybody knows everybody," she said. "A lot of people have a hard time saying, ‘This is what happened to me and this is who has done it' for fear of not being believed and shame. People feel ashamed to admit that these things have happened to them."

            The crisis center will be holding a candlelight vigil this Tuesday to remember Agnes Evan and Susannah Braden, two Alaskan women who died at the hands of their abusers.
