            If you have a business such as a B&B or one with another tourist oriented slant, it's not too late to think about the summer season.

            One thing any locally owned business can do to greatly boost their visibility off-island and out-of-state is to get a free listing on the BuyAlaska dot com website.

            The site is run by the Alaska Small Business Development Center and is a database of Alaska businesses and products.

            Bryan Zak is the SBDC South West Region Director based in Kenai. He says every Alaska based business should be listed in the free directory.

            Among the dozens of presentations during the first-ever Kodiak Marine Science Symposium was a report on using radar to track endangered birds on Kodiak Island. Jenna Cragg, a master's student at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, is using the technique to find and track the elusive Kittlitz's Murrelet. She conducted a preliminary study last year on the south end of the island, and plans to come back this summer to apply her technique to more areas.

            The Coast Guard's next generation of cutter is expected to arrive in Kodiak this week. The Alameda, California-based cutter Bertholf is a 418-foot National Security Cutter which will be in the area for about two months on a mission that combines fisheries enforcement and search and rescue.

            The Bertholf's public affairs officer Lt. Beth Denicola said in a Coast Guard-produced video that the cutter has a crew of 120. That's about 60 fewer than the 378-foot high endurance cutters it's designed to replace.

            The Bertholf was in Juneau earlier this week where it was inspected by Gov. Sean Parnell. The Bertholf is one of eight planned National Security Cutters to eventually replace the Hamilton-class cutters like the Munro which is homeported in Kodiak.

The association's operations manager Gary Byrne says the goal is to restore three lakes that he says have commercial potential as producers of sockeye salmon.

KEA Members Vote to Continue 'Round Up' Scholarship Program PDF Print E-mail

            As expected three incumbent board members were returned to the Kodiak Electric Association Board of Directors for another three-year term. 

            Also at Monday's annual meeting, electric co-op members voted to approve all four ballot propositions being considered.

            The three re-elected board members are Ron Acarregui with 764 votes, Cecil Ranney with 760, and Ben Millstein, who received 759 votes.

            Three of the four ballot measures were largely housekeeping matters, but the fourth dealt with the Operation Round Up program for funding local scholarships. The approval of the measure allows the program to continue, with members' bills being rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the change going into the scholarship fund. The round up program will continue as the default for billing unless a member chooses to opt out of the program.

            At a special board meeting Tuesday, board members elected officers. President of the board is Cliff Davidson, vice-president is Acarregui, and Stosh Anderson was elected secretary/treasurer.
