            Again this year, the Kodiak City Council approved its annual Capital Improvement Projects list early. It was unanimously passed at the Thursday night meeting. The CIP is a wish list of projects the city would like the state legislature to fund during the session starting in January.

            At the top of the list again this year is $3.5-million to help complete the ultra-violet secondary water treatment facility. The city has already spent one-and-a-quarter-million on designing the facility and on the UV "reactors," which kill and sterilize germs in the drinking water. Since the city has an open water source for its drinking water, it is mandated to have two purification systems in place.

            The total cost of the project is $9-million. Governor Sean Parnell vetoed the funding last year, even though the full legislature approved it.

            In March 2008, the factory trawler Alaska Ranger sank in the Bering Sea, taking five men, including its skipper, to a watery grave. But 42 crewmen were saved in a dramatic nighttime rescue by the United States Coast Guard. California author Kalee Thompson recently published "Deadliest Sea: The Untold Story Behind the Greatest Rescue in Coast Guard History." Thompson appeared Tuesday on KMXT's Talk of the Rock.

            You can hear the entire Talk of the Rock interview with Kalee Thompson, the author of "Deadliest Sea" here .

            Little is left of Kodiak's huge military infrastructure from World War II.

            If you've walked in the woods and hills along the ocean-hugging roads, you know that there are any number of old concrete foundations that are buried under masses of berry bushes, alder and willows.

            Most of the foundations were built during the early ‘40s as America prepared for war. Kodiak became a major staging area for the North Pacific with a joint Navy - Army operations center located here.

            We get so used to seeing the foundations and the bunkers, but how have you wondered about the people who built those things? 

            One of the men who built Kodiak's bunkers is Ivan Fox. He was in Kodiak last week visiting friends in Uganik.

            Fox is into his 90s now, but he remembers coming to Kodiak as if it was yesterday. He talked with KMXT's Maggie Wall this past weekend while waiting for his flight back to Seattle.
