             A loss by two-tenths of one second in the last event of the day Saturday cost the Kodiak High School Girls their first state swimming championship. Going into the last event, the 400-yard freestyle relay, the Lady Bears had a three-point lead over rival Service. After 3-minutes 36-point-14 seconds, Service had taken first and scored 18-points, while Kodiak scored 14 points in second.

             The team totals had Service with 94-points to Kodiak's 93. Dimond was third with 73, Chugiak fourth with 60 and East Anchorage fifth with 58. Ketchikan, West Valley, Juneau Douglas, West Anchorage and Kenai rounded out the top 10.

            Kodiak's Laura Griffing set a new state record in the 100-yard breaststroke, shaving over a second off the old mark, with a time of 1-minute 4.5-seconds. Jori Lindquist is the state champion in the 200-freestyle, and the Kodiak girls also won the 200-freestyle relay.

            On the boy's side, Kodiak came in sixth, with 33 team points. Dimond won with 91, despite not having a single race winner. South was second with 76 points, followed by Juneau Douglas with 63, Petersburg with 59 and Lathrop 53.  Seward, Kenai, West Valley and Sitka round out the top 10.

            Nando Macinko won the state title in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 53.5-seconds.

            Print journalism may be facing tough times around the country, but in Kodiak, one man hopes there's enough advertising revenue to support a second publication. Kevin Bass is the publisher of the brand new "Kodiak Shopper." Its first issue hit the streets this week at a number of retail locations around town.

            Bass, who moved here about a year and a half ago from Tennessee, works as a surgical technician during the day at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center, and says he spends about four hours after work every day and all day Saturdays maintaining the Kodiak Shopper website, laying out the paper and selling the display ads in it. The first issue of the tabloid-sized paper runs 16 pages.

            This week was a rare opportunity for students from Kodiak's rural schools to assemble in one place. No roads connect these isolated schools though many of the students already know each other as classrooms are linked by video teleconferencr. But this week gave them a chance to work together face-to-face as part of a four-day intensive session in Port Lions. KMXT's Jacob Resneck visited and filed this report.

            Kodiak Senator Gary Stevens has once again formed a bipartisan coalition to run the Alaska Senate. Like the last two years it includes all 10 Senate Democrats and six of the 10 Senate Republicans. What is different this year is who makes up the leadership. Last year the majority leader was Democrat Johnny Ellis, but he has been moved to Rules Chair, while Republican Kevin Meyer was made Majority Leader.
