            A fault with equipment at the Terror Lake hydroelectric facility plunged Kodiak into darkness at about 2:45 this morning.

             Kodiak Electric President Darron Scott said returning power to customers took longer than it would have otherwise, as other equipment was off line for planned maintenance. He said this is the low-demand season, when maintenance is often done.

            The power was restored to some areas in an hour-and-15-minutes, but it took two hours to restore all areas that were affected.

            Salmon are well-known worldwide for being able to sniff out the stream or lake they were born in and returning there to spawn, even after several years in the open ocean. The salmon often perform spectacular aerobatics in leaping small waterfalls to get home. But some fish have been tricked by man into wanting to go home to a lake they can never reach.

             They are hatchery-born salmon fry stocked into lakes that the salmon can get out of, but can't get back in to. Instead, they mill about below the impasse and are generally caught by commercial fishermen. Kodiak Commercial Fisheries Management Biologist James Jackson explains the concept of the "put and take" fishery.

            Air Station Kodiak crews were busy Friday with two rescue cases - helping a vessel aground and medevac'ing a man from a Crowley tug.

            The fishing vessel Sisiutl went aground in Portage Bay on the west side of the Shelikof Strait early Friday morning. A nearby fishing vessel, the Invincible, made a radio call to the Coast Guard shortly before 6 a.m. reporting that the Sisiutl was aground and listing to one side and that the crew had donned survival suits.

An HC-130 crew and an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak were dispatched to Portage Bay, about 133 miles southwest of Kodiak city. The C-130 arrived on scene and dropped a pump at about 8:30 a.m. The helicopter arrived on scene at about 9 a.m. and lowered a second dewatering pump to the vessel's crew.

            After determining the crew was in no immediate danger the aircrews returned to the air station. The crew of the Sisiutl made temporary repairs and refloated on Friday's late afternoon high tide. According to Coast Guard spokeswoman Sara Francis, the Sisiutl then made for nearby Kanatak Lagoon, where it was intentionally beached so the crew could do more repairs. She says if all goes well, the Sisiutl should refloat today and be brought back to Kodiak under tow.

            The Invincible and at least two other Good Samaritan vessels were standing by.

Leisnoi Elections Go Before Judge PDF Print E-mail

            An Anchorage judge will decide if there will be a new board of directors for Leisnoi Incorporated, a local Native village corporation.

            According to newly-elected board president Debra Lukin, there was a special shareholders meeting last Tuesday in Anchorage for the purpose of recalling the incumbent board of directors. She said in a written response for comment that 59.95-percent of Leisnoi shareholders were present at the meeting, either in person or by proxy. She says 55.99-percent of the votes were in favor of recalling Frank Pagano, Carole Pagano and Tanya Pavloff, the three remaining board members after two others resigned earlier this year.

            In addition to Lukin, the others elected to the board are Jana Turvey, Shannon Johnson, Jeff Chester and Jay Baldwin. Baldwin was one of the two who resigned in March. The new board met and elected Lukin president.

            The next day, on June 15th, the newly-elected board members asked Anchorage Superior Court Judge Frank Pfiffner to declare the special election valid and allow the new board to take over the corporation. They also asked the judged for a temporary restraining order prohibiting the destruction of any documents associated with Leisnoi by the incumbent board.

            Lukin said in her prepared statement that Judge Pfiffner recognizes the shareholders of Leisnoi require a prompt resolution of the matter and indicated he would hear the case on an expedited basis, though no timeline is given. In the meantime, Pfiffner told the incumbent board and new board to submit, by the end of this week, an agreement keeping in place the status quo while the case is decided.
