            There's a rare opportunity to dispose of commercial hazardous waste here in Kodiak next week, but you'll need to act quickly - the deadline for signing up for the service is Friday.

            Clean Harbors is an environmental services company based near Seattle. It's the same company the Kodiak Island Borough uses to transport hazardous waste collected at the landfill over the last year. By signing up this week, companies can piggyback on the borough's contract price for a significant savings.

            That Kodiak Island is an outdoorsman's paradise is not a well-kept secret. Hunters have come here for decades to stalk the wily Kodiak Brown Bear, the largest carnivore in North America. But now the editors of Outdoor Life Magazine have ranked Kodiak as one of the top four places in the nation for the outdoorsman to live. Bend, Oregon ranked first this year, followed by Pinedale, Wyoming; and Rapid City, South Dakota.

            Hunting and fishing opportunities were not the only criteria used in the judging - 40 percent of the score was based on other quality of life metrics, such as strength of the local economy, unemployment, cost of living and quality of the schools. Besides plenty of freshwater fishing and elk hunting opportunities near Bend, Outdoor Life also points out the short average commute time of 15 minutes, 300 days of sunshine and eight breweries as reasons it ranked so high.

            Trevor Brown, the executive director of the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, says the numbers Outdoor Life used to rank Kodiak do make it sound economically attractive.

            Brown says he's not convinced the Outdoor Life Magazine article will prompt anyone to up and move to Kodiak, but he suspects it may pique the interest of travelers. The Kodiak Island Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Janet Buckingham agrees.
