            On the 16th anniversary of a fatal plane crash along Anton Larsen Bay Road, members of Air Station Kodiak's Alaska Patrol crew and their families spent the day sprucing up a memorial to those who were lost.

             Killed in the June 30, 1995, crash were civilian pilot Christopher Canfield, Chief Petty Officer Douglas Cooper, Petty Officer First Class Danny Jackson and Petty Officer Second Class Rodney Parsons. The men, all in their 30s, were returning to Kodiak after sportfishing and rafting near Karluk. The four white crosses that mark the crash site can easily be seen across a gully from the road to Antone Larsen Bay.

            Brian Hansz is an aviation maintenance chief with the Alaska Patrol at the air station, where the HH-65 Dolphin helicopters are based. He said the three Coast Guardsmen who were killed worked in the same shop, and every year crewmen there go up to the memorial site to maintain it

Last week, a construction crew working on replacing the retaining wall that borders the museum property uncovered some of that history.

             Museum Director Katie Oliver said an archeologist was monitoring the entire project and was there when a historical rock foundation was discovered.

Work Place Alaska - Park Ranger II

            Have you got an interest in working in the out-of-doors? Like teaching people about nature and the importance of park lands to Kodiak?

             If the idea of being a state park ranger appeals to you, you might want to consider applying for the job as the new district ranger for the Kodiak state parks.

            The job came open recently when the previous district ranger, Kevin Murphy transferred to Juneau.

            Claire LeClair is the deputy director of Alaska State Parks. She was in town recently filling in at Fort Abercrombie State Park. She encourages Kodiak residents to check out the requirements and to consider applying for the position. She says many of the minimum requirements for the job allow substituting experience in related areas.
