This week the U.S. government declared the well that spilled around 5 million barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico officially dead. It's been called the worst accidental offshore spill in history and caused when BP's Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20, killing 11 workers.

Three Coast Guard public affairs officers from the base in Kodiak spent time as the Coast Guard pulled in resources and personnel from all over to mitigate the disaster. One of those was Petty Officer Sara Francis who described the size of the response.

            A 38-year-old Ouzinkie man was stabbed late Friday night in the village. The Alaska State Troopers and the Ouzinkie village public safety officer arrested 23-year-old Cadman Peterson of Anchorage in the assault.

            A Coast Guard helicopter from Air Station Kodiak transported the troopers to the village, about 10 miles north of Kodiak city, and then medevac'd the victim back to town. Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters said Monday she did not know the extent of the injuries, but that the man was treated at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center and later released.

            Petersen was remanded to the Kodiak jail.

            Maggie Wall spent some time last week at a forum on the abuse of prescription drugs in Kodiak, where she learned that it's illegal to give a friend some of your prescription meds - no matter how innocent the transaction seems.

            After the event, she spoke with Alaska State Trooper Jeremy Stone about the rapid rise in the abuse of prescription drugs among teens and adults in town.

Stone said if parents want to keep kids from abusing medications we all need to change the way we use, think and talk about prescription drugs.

            And just for the record-Maggie says she's sure the statutes of limitations has expired on her foray into sharing prescription drugs with a friend, and she promises she'll never do it again.

            The playoff hopes for the Kodiak High School Bears football team remain alive after 55-14 trouncing of the Houston Hawks at Baronof Park Saturday. It was the first time the Bears had scored in Northern Lights Conference play all season. 

            If Kodiak beats Skyview in the season's last game, they will be tied for fourth in the NLC, with the Bears coming out on top by the head-to-head tiebreaker. However, only the top three teams in both the Northern Lights Conference and the Great Land Conference are guaranteed a playoff spot this year, as the last spot in one of the divisions will be given to the winner of the new Southeast Conference.

 

            At Fort Abercrombie in the final cross-country meet before the regional meet, the Bears split with the Wasilla Warriors. James Osowski , Cole Christiansen and Nathan Deer were just eight seconds apart in finishing one-two-three, to lead the boys to a 19-to-37 victory. Jordan Fogle was fifth.

            Jaymi Bethea edged out defending Region III champion Jenna Ford by five seconds to win in 19-minutes 22-seconds. Sarah Ng was fifth. The Warriors won 23-36.

            The next meet will be the region championships in Soldotna at Skyview High School's Tsalteshi Trails.
