            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly tonight (Thurs.) takes public hearing on a plan to create a new workforce council designed to create jobs and train people to work them.

            The proposed Kodiak Workforce Regional Advisory Council would be made up of local educators, business people and professional craftsmen, among others. The council would study trends and encourage job seekers to pursue a career in the areas expected to have openings in the future. In some cases the council would work with the high school and college to train new-comers in various fields.

            In other business, the assembly will consider a resolution adopting a three-year schedule for re-evaluating taxable property on the road system, and a five-year schedule for remote, rural properties.

            The Assembly will also consider in first reading an ordinance that changes the date for filing personal property tax returns.

            Tonight's assembly meeting begins at 7:30 in the assembly chambers. It will be broadcast live on KMXT.

            There's a new spot downtown to sit a spell and enjoy the day. Well, it's not totally new... In fact, it's quite old.

            But it's got some new landscaping and a bright new picnic bench and an arbor for flowers.

            We're talking about the Old Russian Well located between Cy's Sporting Goods and the Russian Heritage Inn.

            The tiny parcel nestled out of the way in the center of downtown got a facelift recently.

            The dead fin whale that floated into Kodiak on Sunday night may have died after being struck by a ship. Kodiak's marine mammal expert, Kate Wynn (win), of the University of Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, said blunt-force trauma was the likely cause, but more study is needed.

             She, a veterinarian from Anchorage, and other scientists performed a necropsy on the whale Monday on Uski Island, right in front of downtown.

Kodiak Unemployment Fell in July PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 August 2010

            Kodiak's jobless rate fell slightly between June and July, matching the same trend found around the state.

            Statewide the unemployment rate fell in every region.

            The state's labor department says that traditionally more Alaskans find work in summer months. The state's workforce numbers peaked in July during six of the last 10 years.

            That's no surprise for us here in Kodiak where the increase in fishery activity plays a big role in our employment numbers.

            Locally, July's unemployment rate was 6.2 percent, down from 6.7 in June. In terms of people that means 28 more people were working in July than in June.

            Last year at this time the local jobless rate was just 5.8.

            Generally, July tends to be the month of lowest unemployment throughout the state as fisheries and tourism gives job seekers a big boost.

            All 14 members of the Kodiak High School Bears varsity cross country team ran their fastest races of the season over the weekend at the Skyview Invitational, and 13 of those runners set lifetime personal records.

            The Bears were led by Jaymi Bethea (beth-ee-ay), who ran the fastest race for a Kodiak girl since Kristi Klinnert in 1986. Bethea's time of 18-minutes 47.2-seconds was a personal best by 13 seconds, and good for second place on the Tsalteshi (salt-esh-ee) Trails course in Soldotna.

            Bethea passed defending Region III champion Jenna Ford of Wasilla in the last 400 yards of the race, and finished just three-and-a-half seconds behind winner Jeanette Northey of Service High. Coach Marcus Dunbar said that with her performance, Bethea has established herself as one of the top contenders in the state. Sarah Ng (ing) finished with a personal best 19-56, and came in 20th.

            The Lady Bears were sixth overall, with 165 points. Wasilla won with 66, followed by South, Grace Christian, Dimond and Service.

            On the boys' side, the Kodiak Bears had 58 points and finished second to Service's 28. Wasilla was third, Chugiak fourth, and Grace Christian fifth.

            James Osowski and Nathan Deer both finished in the top 10, with fourth and seventh-places, respectively. Cole Christiansen was 11th, with Jordan Fogle 13th.

            Next up for the Bears is a home meet at Fort Abercrombie Friday evening, with Grace, ACS, Port Lions and a couple runners from Service expected to compete.
