KODIAK, Alaska - Santa and his elves were ready to take off for Karluk and Larsen Bay Thursday morning from Air Station Kodiak before their “sleigh,” an MH-60 Jayhawk, was grounded due to mechanical problems. The Santa to the Villages outreach by the Spouse's Association of Kodiak and Air Station Kodiak is in its 37th year of delivering Christmas spirit to the remote villages on Kodiak Island.

            Today's Santa to the Villages flights to were canceled at the last minute after one of the Coast Guard's MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters developed a mechanical problem and had to be taken offline for repairs.

             The decision to ground Santa and his elves came at the last minute even as the volunteers were donning their flight suits for a morning takeoff to deliver donated gifts and books to school children in the villages of Karluk and Larsen Bay.

            Tracy Wise is one of the volunteers. She says they'll reschedule as soon as possible.

            Earlier this week volunteers in costume flew to Ouzinkie, Danger Bay and Port Lions visiting school children. There's a flight planned tomorrow in Chiniak. It's not yet clear whether that flight will also have to be rescheduled.

            Coming up this week, more reaction to cuts in the halibut quota; sablefish numbers are up, and the North Pacific council is meeting right now in Anchorage. All that, and, is combining Fish and Game's commercial and sportsfish divisions a good idea? We had help this week from KFSK's Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg, CoastAlaska's Ed Schoenfeld in Sitka, KMXT's Jacob Resneck in Kodiak, and KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham.

            The University of Alaska Board of Regents begins two days of meetings in Fairbanks today (Thursday) and on the agenda is a proposal to increase the cost of tuition. The proposal calls for a seven percent increase for undergraduate tuition.

            Many local college students are unhappy with the proposed tuition increase. And, as KMXT's Maggie Wall reports, some are questioning the fairness of the way tuitions are charged at smaller, rural campuses.

            A meeting between Kodiak's power utility and state and federal agency representatives appeared to go smoothly with few concerns raised over a proposed third turbine at the Terror Lake hydro dam. The Kodiak Electric Association wants to upgrade its hydro plant as part of a plan to add three more wind turbines on Pillar Mountain to reach a goal of generating 95 percent of its power through renewable resources by 2020.

            KEA is applying to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to add a third 11.25 megawatt hydro turbine at Terror Lake. That would allow the utility to generate more power at a faster rate. Only then could it expand its wind production on Pillar Mountain to six turbines and wean its dependence on diesel, says KEA's president and CEO Darron Scott.
