            Cruise ship season is about to begin in Kodiak. The first ship - a large one transiting from Asia to the Lower 48 - will be in a week from Saturday, says Janet Buckingham of the local visitor center.

            The week after that, the first of a summer-long series of Sunday visits will begin.

              Buckingham, the executive director of the Kodiak Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, says independent travelers stay longer and spend more money with local businesses.

             Holland America Lines will be making nine stops in Kodiak this year, while Silver Seas and Oceana cruise lines will be making two visits each. Orion Adventures will visit once. Passenger capacities range from 1,432 down to 100 on the Orion II, which, at 288 feet, is more of a mega-yacht than cruise ship. The last visit of the season is scheduled for early September.

            A list of all the cruise ship visits is linked above, and on page 2.

            The Kodiak High School renovation is expected to take another step forward (Thursday) when the borough assembly considers approving the design concept for the high school addition and renovation project.

             Stakeholders related to the school and the public at large have been meeting and reviewing proposals and making suggestions for changes since January. Now the borough needs to decide on a concept for the design. The next step, then, would be for architects to work through the design development stage incorporating the approved concepts.

            There is no public hearing on the proposed design concept, but there is a public comment period early in the meeting in which interested people can let the assembly know what they think about the school project.

            Nearly 50 teenagers from across Alaska and the Yukon Territory gathered in Kodiak last week to learn how to be good leaders.

            The event was part of the Rotary International's Youth Leadership Awards and was sponsored by Kodiak's two Rotary clubs.

            RYLA teaches teens the qualities of a good leader including team-building, problem solving and personal development.

When KMXT's Maggie Wall caught up with them at Camp Woody, they had already had several days of training together and were eager to get back to their schools to put into practice all the things they'd learned-including the things they'd learned about themselves.
