Borough Filing Deadline Friday, City Next Month - For Now PDF Print E-mail

            The filing deadline for Kodiak Island Borough offices is coming up this Friday, and so far, there's only one declared candidate for any of the 13 open seats.

            Incumbent Mayor Jerome Selby has filed for re-election, but as of Monday afternoon, incumbent assemblywomen Pat Branson and Louise Stutes have not filed. School board incumbent Melissa Borton has not filed for re-election either. The other nine seats available in the borough are for service area boards. All terms are for three years.

            The deadline for Kodiak City Council doesn't come up until September 3rd, but there is an initiative on the ballot to change that date and move it up to coincide with the borough's deadline.

            There is a single one-year seat available on the council, which belonged to Paul Smith, who is leaving Kodiak. A pair of three-year seats are available as well - they belong to incumbents Terry Haines and John Whiddon. As of Monday, neither has filed the required nominating packets for re-election.

            The city is still looking for someone to temporarily fill the seat Smith is vacating. Candidates will be interviewed at the council work session in two weeks, and the applicant selected will serve until October 28th, when the results from the October 5th municipal election are certified.

            Friday afternoon the State of Alaska released the list of schools that did and did not meet education standards under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Of Alaska's 505 public schools, 203, or just more than 40 percent, did not make what is called "adequate yearly progress," or AYP, an increase of 10 schools over last year.

            The rate for the Kodiak Island Borough School District is a little better. Of the district's 14 schools, five did not make AYP, which is two more than last year. Though the numbers of schools not making AYP increased, Superintendent Stewart MacDonald found reason for optimism.

            The Kodiak High School Bears kicked off the 2010 football season on a high note Saturday, with a 33-to-7 rout of the Eielson Ravens in Fairbanks.

            Kodiak running back Riley McFarlin had for 109 yards on the ground and quarterback Matthew Chavarria had 103 yards in the air.

            The Raven's only score was a four- yard run by Pat Brown in the third period.

            It was Kodiak's fourth trip to Eielson, and the Bear's fourth win.

            With the win over third-ranked Eielson, fourth-ranked Kodiak will surely move up - but probably only one spot - in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network's statewide football poll. Defending state small school champions the Kenai Kardinals are ranked number one, with runners-up Soldotna second. Over the weekend, Kenai trounced Skyview, while the Stars edged Wasilla.

            Coming up this weekend will be the Kodiak home and conference opener against SoHi, the team's arch rivals, who have beaten the Bears in three of the last four state championship games.

            The weather this summer has really been the pits. Rain and clouds, and clouds and rain.

            It's taken its toll on both people and plants around town. But some Kodiak gardeners were able to see tremendous results despite the rain. They opened up their yards and gardens to residents and fellow gardeners during this weekend's garden tour.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall was at Darlene Turner's house on Three Sisters Way. Maggie's job was to pass out miniature banana muffins to the soggy visitors.

            Despite the rain, she was able to get comments from a number of garden enthusiasts.
