            A 77-foot fishing boat went aground late last night just off Kodiak City. According to an eye-witness, the boat grounded about 100 feet from shore, not far from Jackson's Trailer Court.

            Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Lally in Kodiak says the fishing vessel Katherine went aground with six people on board, but was not in distress. A Good Samaritan vessel towed it from the reef just after 4 this morning, and escorted the Katherine as it made its way back to Kodiak harbor under its own power.

            A local marketing committee is facing a deadline to craft a strategy promoting Kodiak's seafood as environmentally responsible. The Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation recently awarded the Kodiak Branding and Marketing Committee $17,000 to develop the plan. The Kodiak Island Borough was required to match the grant, for a combined $34,000 now being allocated toward the effort.

            But under the terms of the grant, the foundation's money has to be spent by March 31st. So the branding committee, which is a subcommittee of the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, has retained a Seattle-based fisheries consultant to develop the strategy.

            Kodiak's had some spats of cold weather this winter, but nothing like the cold of the winter of 1989. That year January 28th set an all-time record low of minus 16 degrees.

            Kevin Andresen remembers that day well, he had recently moved to Kodiak from Fairbanks and was spending the winter on crutches. He and KMXT's Maggie Wall reminisced about that winter.

            The use of methamphetamines-or meth-is reportedly becoming an increasing problem in Kodiak.

            Meth comes in many forms, can be made at home and provides a long-lasting energizing high. Unfortunately, meth is also extremely addictive - officials say that sometimes the first use is all it takes to start an addiction. That's why health and law enforcement experts tell people its best not to ever start.

            One of the ways to deter the use of meth, and to help families in crisis, is awareness. That was part of what attendees learned last night at a public discussion on meth in Kodiak.

            Sponsored by the Native Village of Afognak, the gathering included official speakers, but also included personal, heart-felt stories from the audience of how meth had destroyed lives and families.

            A Kodiak fisherman who threatened a federal fisheries observer has avoided jail time after a judge sentenced him to community service and ordered anger management therapy.

            45-year-old Jeffrey Eugene Scott had had been the skipper of the vessel Dusk owned by Kodiak businessman Al Burch. Burch said the incident began after Scott had dumped a load of pollock in Kodiak Harbor.

            Court documents say Scott then chased the fisheries observer to the parking lot of Pacific Seafoods where he threatened her as she was trying to leave. That happened on October 7, 2009. Burch said he had fired Scott shortly before the parking lot incident.

            NOAA enforcement agents interviewed Scott later that day. He reportedly told them he could do whatever he wanted to the female observer if he saw her in town. He was criminally charged in federal court and pleaded guilty this month to two misdemeanor counts for threatening a fisheries observer.

            The judge sentenced Scott to three years probation and ordered him to serve 100 hours of community service as well as therapy. His former employer says the sentence seemed appropriate.

            The judge also ordered that Scott's future interactions with fisheries observers be limited.
