            It's been a rough couple months at the Kodiak Animal Shelter as staff and volunteers juggled kittens, kittens-and more kittens.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall reports that the deluge of cats has subsided somewhat, but there are concerns about what a local spike in the cat population could mean in the future.

pdf High School Football Schedule 57.31 Kb

            The Kodiak High School Bears football team has been practicing for a week now, and will kick off the 2010 campaign Saturday on the road against the Eielson Ravens. The eight-game season has the Bears on the road half the time, but never two weekends in a row.

            Kodiak's home opener is week two against the team's arch rivals, the Soldotna Stars, who have stymied Kodiak's championship dreams three of the last four years. Then it's back on the road to play the Wasilla Warriors, and then home for two in a row in weeks four and five.

            Kodiak hosts the Barrow Whalers on their first visit to the Rock. The Bears have beaten Barrow twice in the schools' histories - including one playoff game in a snow storm on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. The Whalers will be followed by the Homer Mariners, and then it's back on the road to face the defending small school state champs, the Kenai Kardinals. One more game at home against Houston and then Kodiak wraps up the regular season on the road against the Skyview Panthers.

100730.spillmap.jpg            It's been two weeks since BP says it capped the well spilling deep beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

            A person might like to breath of sigh of relief-but far too many Alaskans remember the aftermath of the Exxon Valdez Spill and know the future holds a lot of uncertainty and heartache for Gulf of Mexico residents.

            Kodiak's Jane Eisemann was actively fishing the year of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Now she's a member of the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens' Advisory Council. The RCAC was created after the Exxon spill to promote safe operation of the Valdez terminal-and tankers carrying oil from the terminal.

            If you'd like to get a better perspective of the extent of the Gulf spill, there is a website to help you visualize the spread of oil. It's called If It Was My Home and allows you to super-imposing the Gulf spill over any area you choose. For instance, type in 99615 and it will show the size and shape of the spill superimposed over Kodiak Island and surrounding areas of Alaska.. The tool is located here
