           A former Kodiak doctor recently dabbled in the art of book writing while documenting his own family history in Alaska.

           Dr. Bob Johnson’s new book, “Alaska Frontier Surgeon,” captures the life story of his father, the late Dr. Arthur Holmes Johnson, who was the first physician to call Kodiak home. Johnson said his dad first stopped in Kodiak in the late 1930s, on his way back to Oregon after working as a doctor in Nak Nek for the summer. He said his dad fell in love with the island and its small community.
           “It was a village, about 550 people. That’s sure not many people to support a doctor, but Kodiak captured him, as it had captured others.”

           EQIP  High Tunnels, more commonly known as hoop houses, have been popping up all over Kodiak in the past few years. EQIP stands for Environmental Quality Incentives Program.  
 Dave Kaplan is a certified U.S. Department of Agriculture conservation planner and technical service provider, and does inspections and surveys around the island for new hoop houses. Kaplan says there are more than 50 High Tunnels on the island, and explains why Kodiak is a hotspot for them.
          “You know, they work everywhere. If there’s sun, they work. It’s just an alternative; it provides an incredible food source. It’s amazing: you can grow anything in there. Every high tunnel that I inspect, I’m just amazed what they grow and how healthy the vegetables are. It’s an incredible unit.”
            Hoop houses are increasingly more popular in part because of a nationwide program that actually reimburses people who chose to build them. Applying for a High Tunnel, or at least one that will be reimbursed, is a lengthy process, and includes follow up inspections after the hoop house is built.
